In May, players who reach the top 64 in the Wild game mode can qualify for an upcoming official Wild tournament. With that in mind, we’re going to examine a Wild deck today.

Playing Hearthstone’s Taunt Warrior Taunt Warrior is the new standard version of the Control Warrior archetype: stall the game and control the board long enough until you find your win condition. In this case, the deck utilizes Fire Plume’s Heart and Sulfuras to finish off your opponent in the end. Playing 7 Taunt minions is fairly easy to pull...

Playing Hearthstone’s Cavern Rogue I have to admit, I did not expect The Caverns Below to be that amazing of a quest. I initially wrote it off because I didn’t think it’d be easily activated. Little did I know how consistent and easy it would be to complete the quest as early as turn 4 consistently. Though depending on...

What’s your favorite Journey to Un’goro card? This is it! We now know all the cards in Journey to Un’goro thanks to Friday’s livestream with Game Director Ben Brode and Frodan.

He’s still my favorite card largely because...
