Table of Contents

Acolyte of Pain is a neutral minion. This card can be obtained from expert 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

Acolyte of Pain can be used as a card draw engine in various decks. However, to use this card effectively, it requires some sort of synergy in your deck to help it draw multiple cards. Simply played out onto the board it will usually die in a single attack from your opponent and represent fairly weak value.

2. Constructed Play

In Constructed, Acolyte of Pain is used as a card draw engine quite commonly in decks that are able to damage it effectively for multiple cards. Mages are able to shoot it for 1 damage with their own Hero Power, Warriors have access to various cards such as Cruel Taskmaster, Whirlwind, and Death's Bite, and Paladins often use it in conjunction with Aldor Peacekeeper.

3. Arena

Acolyte of Pain is a fairly average choice in Arena. Although it is usually difficult to draw more than one card with Acolyte, it does at least replace itself in your hand in most situations, so will rarely represent extremely low value.
