Table of Contents

Mechanical Yeti 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

Mechanical Yeti is a very powerful card. Chillwind Yeti has long been considered the best 4 Mana minion in the game due to its fantastic stat distribution, Mechanical Yeti shares these stats, but has the added benefit of potential Mech synergy. Since is there is currently no drawback to a card being a Mech, this seems to make this card more powerful than Chillwind Yeti in most situations. The Deathrattle effect is symmetrical, meaning over a large number of games, you should come out even in terms of the benefit you and your opponent get from it.

2. Constructed Play

In Constructed, Mechanical Yeti is best used as a Chillwind Yeti replacement in any deck that features Mech synergy. It is perhaps even preferred to run this card over Chillwind Yeti if your deck does not have any particular Mech synergy but features potentially strong uses for Spare Parts. If the meta features a lot of decks that will perhaps get stronger use out of Spare Parts than you, such as Gadgetzan Auctioneer decks, then you should avoid this card and use standard Chillwind Yetis instead. This card could also be used in an Undertaker deck, since such decks were lacking good 4-drop Deathrattle minions previous to the Goblins vs Gnomes set release.

3. Arena

In Arena, Mechanical Yeti is a top tier pick. As mentioned previously it is better than Chillwind Yeti, which was previously considered one of the best Arena cards in the game, in a majority of situations. If you have even 1 or 2 Mech synergy cards in your deck, then Mechanical Yeti is a nice upgrade to have, even if you do not, then it should function similarly to a Chillwind Yeti due to the symmetrical benefit of its Deathrattle.
