Illuminator is a neutral minion. This card was introduced with Goblins vs Gnomes and can now only be obtained through crafting. Below the card images, you will find explanations to help you use the card optimally in every game mode of Hearthstone.

1. General Comments

Illuminator can be a useful card in decks that try to stall out the game through multiple Secrets, in order to provide yourself with some life gain.

2. Constructed Play

Illuminator could be used in a Mage deck that is using Ice Block. Since Ice Block is hard to remove without lowering your opponent's health to 0, as long as Illuminator remains alive you will continue to heal for 4 every turn.

3. Arena

In Arena, Illuminator is a good card. Although health totals are less important in Arena, and the necessary synergy is harder to draft, 2/4 are still greats stats for a 3 Mana card. With 4 health you are able to trade into the extremely common 3/2s and have your minion survive.
