Call of the Wild

Table of Contents

Call of the Wild is a Hunter-only spell. This card can be obtained from Whispers of the Old Gods packs. Below the card images, you will find explanations to help you use the card optimally in every game mode of Hearthstone.

1. General Comments

Call of the Wild is an extremely strong card when applying a standard Hearthstone value based evaluation to it. Any single outcome of an Animal Companion is stronger than a 3 Mana minion, so combining all three of them into a single 8 Mana card is well above the regular power curve. Since you summon all three Companions, it also removes the downside of a random outcome from a single Animal Companion. Having the immediate source of 5 Damage from the buffed Huffer also removes some of the slowness of the card and makes it have an immediate impact.

2. Constructed Play

Call of the Wild is an incredibly powerful card. However, most successful Hunter decks are very aggressive and do not want to play 8 Mana cards. In a more Midrange or Control based Hunter however, this card is a must-include.

3. Arena

Call of the Wild is an excellent card in Arena. For 8 Mana, not only is it an objectively high value play in terms of total stats, it can also allow you to create a swing on the board by using Huffer as removal and leaving behind a strong board presence.
