Table of Contents

Frost Giant is a neutral 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

Frost Giant is a card that can prove very powerful in a deck that aims to draw the game out to the extreme late-game. In a deck that incentivises use of your Hero Power, such as an Inspire Control deck, this card can be an exceptional late-game drop. However, it is an easy target for an opposing Big Game Hunter. It is worth noting that the effect is applied throughout the game, not only when you hold the card in your hand.

2. Constructed Play

In Constructed, Frost Giant can see play in slow Control decks that use their Hero Power often, either to activate Inspire mechanics, or to mesh with the overall game plan of their deck. However, it may be forced out the meta if Big Game Hunter remains extremely popular.

3. Arena

Frost Giant is a strong card in Arena. The potential for this card to be played as a 8/8 for 8 Mana or less is very high, which represents excellent value in Arena. Since specific removal like Big Game Hunter is less common in Arena, it is also more difficult to counter.
