Table of Contents

Gilblin Stalker is a neutral minion. This card can be obtained from Goblins vs Gnomes 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

Stealth is a powerful effect that can be treated similarly to Charge. A Stealthed minion is very likely to get to attack at least once, and you get to choose where to make the attack before your opponent is allowed to interact with your minion. At 2/3, Gilblin Stalker has acceptable stats for 2 Mana, so the Stealth is a nice bonus on top of an already solid card.

2. Constructed Play

In Constructed, Gilblin Stalker is hard to fit into a deck due to the number of other quality Stealth minions available. Shade of Naxxramas and Stranglethorn Tiger are both better choices for decks that aim to buff a Stealthed minion for combo based kills. There are also a wide variety of quality 2-drops in the game with a variety of effects, so you will need a very specific use for the Stealth effect to justify playing this card over all the others.

3. Arena

Gilblin Stalker is quite a strong pick in Arena. Playing it out on turn 2 will give you the opportunity to evaluate the state of the board after your opponent responds, and choose whether or not you wish to attack. Should the position not be favourable for you, you can simply leave this card in Stealth and wait for a good minion to trade with to appear on the board.
