[UPDATE--Arena Tips and suggested Basic Decks have now been added]
So you’ve never played a card game that doesn’t involve someone stripping off or take place in a casino full of wealthy, braying old men in tuxedos throwing back martinis while exquisitely beautiful women, stuffed to the gills with silicone and botox, hang off their arms looking bored. I think you’ve come to the wrong place. Be off with you. For the rest of you who are serious about this, let’s get down to brass tacks.
Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft (opens in new tab) is an online strategic card game from Blizzard and is setting out to get a hunk of that delicious pie cooling on the windowsill over at Wizards of the Coast. It’s an arguably simpler and therefore faster paced experience than Magic: The Gathering, and as it’s purely online it’s saving the lives of the millions of trees, slaughtered what seems like every other week for the newly themed Magic packs.
Let us help you help the trees with our guide to Hearthstone and you’ll be throwing those MTG cards onto a roaring bonfire in no time, with nary a thought for the ludicrous irony of that scenario because you’ll be too busy playing Hearthstone.
