What happens when you use Reincarnate ('Destroy a minion, then return it to life with full Health') on a minion that has the Ancestral Spirit deathrattle (Give a minion "Deathrattle: Resummon this minion.)? Does it result in two copies of that minion? Also how does it effect minions like Harvest Golem that summon a minion on death?

Additionally, what interesting plays can occur using this combo? I assume the combo + Baron Rivendare would be hilarious in conjunction with a card as strong as Cairne Bloodhoof

Just for fun: How to Baron Rivendare. If you don't like montage parodies, stay away. – Schism Aug 13 '14 at 15:43

Let's take the example you presented with the Harvest Golem.

If you play Ancestral Spirit on him, and then use Reincarnate, he will die, spawning the 2/1 token, then he will respawn twice, once from Ancestral Spirit and once from Reincarnate. So at then end you'll have, one 2/1 token, and two 2/3 Harvest Golem.

Now just for fun, think about the following combo : play Baron Rivendare then next turn play Leroy, use Ancestral Spirit twice and Reincarnate !!! Enjoy !

can you clarify by "respawn twice"? Do you end up with 1 or 2 harvest golems. – l I Aug 13 '14 at 12:15
i clarified with what you will exactly get on board – Shunwoo Aug 13 '14 at 12:18
You can have 6 Leroy attack the same turn if you make sure your Baron survives the turn before that. Requires: Baron R. on board, 10 mana and 1x Leroy, 2x Ancestral Spirit and 1xReincarnate – Robin Castlin Aug 14 '14 at 9:17
