Table of Contents

Sylvanas Windrunner is a neutral minion. This card can be obtained from expert 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

Sylvanas Windrunner is one of the staple Legendary cards in the game, and is seen in a large variety of decks. It creates extremely awkward situations for your opponent if they do not have access to a Silence or Transform effect, and is fantastic at breaking up complex board states in your favour.

2. Constructed Play

In Constructed, Sylvanas Windrunner is used extremely commonly as a high curve option in any Control, Midrange, or Tempo deck. The utility it provides by forcing your opponent to play inefficiently while trying to avoid getting their best minions stolen is incredibly valuable. Sylvanas stands out as a top choice, even in the extremely competitive 6-Mana slot.

3. Arena

Sylvanas Windrunner has an amazing impact on the board. A 5/5 for 6 Mana already represents decent value, and its additional benefits really push it over the edge. Should you be able to trigger the Deathrattle and take control of an opponent's minion, it is likely to be a 3-for-1 card. Sylvanas is one of the best Legendary cards in the Arena, and will usually be the strongest pick out of a choice of 3.
