Table of Contents

Ancient Shade is a neutral minion. This card can be obtained in the League of Explorers solo adventure. Below the card images, you will find explanations to help you use the card optimally in every game mode of Hearthstone.

1. General Comments

Ancient Shade is an aggressive card that comes with its own drawback. However, a 7/4 for 4 Mana is simply not good enough for high level play, and may not even by chosen for many decks if it offered no drawback. It trades extremely poorly with Piloted Shredder, one of the most common cards in the game and is equally vulnerable to various other removal options.

2. Constructed Play

In Constructed, Ancient Shade is a very weak card. Due to its high attack, it is suited being used in aggressive decks, but it is neither resilient, nor does it have Charge, meaning it will very often simply never be able to attack.

3. Arena

In Arena, Ancient Shade is an average card. Since removal is less common, it is more likely to stick around for at least one turn and allow you to trade up favourably into a bigger minion. However, it is still fragile, and you will run into many scenarios where it trades down instead.
