Table of Contents

Alexstrasza 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

Alexstrasza is a card that is very flexible and can fill multiple roles in a deck. It can be used in combo based decks to lower your opponent to 15 Health in order to kill them with your combo on the following turn, or it can be used more defensively in slower Control decks in order to help you to survive against Aggro decks.

2. Constructed Play

In Constructed, Alexstrasza is commonly found in Combo decks such as Freeze Mage as an activator for your combo the following turn. By using this strategy you can focus solely on stalling the game for the majority of the game and not worry about having to deal damage to your opponent. It has also been granted increased value since the release of Emperor Thaurissan, since this card can speed up your eventual combos, or make things possible that are otherwise outside of regular Mana constraints.

3. Arena

Alexstrasza is a fairly average Legendary minion in Arena. Since you are unlikely to be able to draft a deck with strong synergy to take advantage of its Battlecry it will most often be used as a 9 Mana 8/8 minion with a small upside. While this is acceptable, it is unspectacular compared to the effect of many other possible choices.
