Table of Contents

Dark Cultist is a Priest-only minion. This card can be obtained in the Naxxramas solo adventure. Below the card images, you will find explanations to help you use the card optimally in every game mode of Hearthstone.

1. General Comments

Dark Cultist is one of the highest value 3-drop minions in the game. The expected value for a 3-drop minion is 3/3 with a beneficial ability, or 3/4 with no ability. Combining both the 3/4 stats with a beneficial Deathrattle effect makes Dark Cultist an extremely powerful card.

2. Constructed Play

Dark Cultist is a staple in most types of Priest decks. Since Priest often lacks in cards to play early that are not reactive to what your opponent does, Dark Cultist is often your first way of building a board presence for yourself in the early-game.

3. Arena

Dark Cultist is one of the strongest picks in Arena. It will usually dominate the board if played on turn 3, and does not lose significant value in the late-game due to its powerful Deathrattle. Dark Cultist should be considered almost an auto-pick out of any three cards, and does not lose value when you have multiple copies in your deck.
