Salty Dog

Table of Contents

Salty Dog 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

Salty Dog is a new addition to the Pirate set in Goblins vs Gnomes. Although it has an extremely high attack stat for its Mana cost, the health is very low, which leaves it open to easy removal. You can compare Salty Dog to a card like Core Hound, which looks appealing to some new players due to its high attack, but it is often unable to make an attack due to how fragile it is for the turn you play it.

2. Constructed Play

In Contructed, Salty Dog will probably only ever be useful in a Pirate synergy deck. Since there are not a huge amount of Pirates available for such a deck, you will need to take advantage of all the available options to make it work. If you are able to buff this card, or give it Stealth with Conceal or a Spare Part, then it may be able to achieve good value.

3. Arena

Salty Dog is a fairly weak pick in Arena. Its low health will often lead to it being removed by a cheaper minion or removal spell, creating a Mana advantage for your opponent. There are also a large number of superior 5-drops available in the game, so you can often pass this card due to the expectation that you will be offered superior 5 Mana minions later.
