Table of Contents

Dreadscale is a Hunter-only minion. This card can be obtained from The Grand Tournament 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

Dreadscale is a card that offers a strong enough effect for a 3 Mana card, but is featured in a class that is unable to take advantage of it. Hunter does not have any particular class cards that benefit from a self-damaging effect, plus it already has options for low-game AoE effects in Unleash the Hounds and Explosive Trap.

2. Constructed Play

In Constructed, Dreadscale is competing with too many high quality cards in the Hunter class in the 3 Mana spot. Animal Companion and Eaglehorn Bow, amongst others are automatic inclusions in a Hunter deck, which makes it difficult to find room for a minion such as this one.

3. Arena

In Arena, Dreadscale is a below average card. Although it is possible to be offered a set of Legendary cards where this is the correct option, there will usually be a better choice. Since Hunter is usually played aggressively in Arena, you will look to be developing your own board early, meaning you are likely to damage your own board more than your opponent's.
