Be a Better Hearthstone Player

Gain the Upper Hand Quickly

Once in game, it is crucial to deal damage as quick as possible. Don’t hesitate to use spells such as Arcane Missiles, Arcane Shot, or Sinister Strike early on. Spells combined with minion damage will do significant damage which will put the opponent on the defensive. Instead of thinking how to deal damage, the opposing player will focus more on protecting his dwindling life.

Control the Board, Control the Game

This is probably the single most important tip you can take away from the article. According to, “board control is ensuring the other player uses up more resources removing your cards than you use removing theirs.” For example, a Chillwind Yeti is a four to cast 4/5 minion. If you force the enemy to use a 1/1 Novice Engineer and two 2/3 River Crocolisks to dispose the Chillwind Yeti, you are controlling the game since the opponent has used more mana than you did in the process. Base your every decision on this concept and you will go a long way in this game.

Look for Favorable Tradeoffs –

Part of controlling the game is looking for favorable tradeoffs to eliminate the opponent’s minion. Using a 1/1, one to cast Stonetusk Boar to waste a 2/1 Young Priestess with the special ability to give a random friendly hero minion +1 health is a solid move. Look for similar opportunities as you go through the game, and you will have an easier time coming out victorious.

Protect your Hero

Although dealing damage to the opponent may seem like the primary objective of the game, the protection of your hit points is just as important. Ideally, it is better to attack the enemy’s minions first to ensure that minimal or zero damage will be dealt to you in the next turn. However, having a minion with taunt ability like Shieldbearer will give you the freedom to attack. If you can, cast spells that will buff the minion with taunt to increase its staying power. With your defense set, you are now free to send your other minions on a damage spree.
