Table of Contents

Ancestral Knowledge is a Shaman-only spell. This card can be obtained from The Grand Tournament 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

Ancestral Knowledge is a card that provides non-situational card draw for Shaman, something that the class has always lacked. However, it does represent poor value overall, drawing only 2 cards for a total of 4 Mana. It can still be useful as late-game tool, when Shamans are often running out of resources.

2. Constructed Play

In Constructed, Ancestral Knowledge can potentially be used in various types of Shaman decks as a consistent card draw engine. It provides cards more reliably than alternatives like Mana Tide Totem, but does not have the potential to spiral a game out of control like Mana Tide Totem does.

3. Arena

In Arena, Ancestral Knowledge is a reasonable card. It can be useful as a late-game play when you are starting to run out of resources. It should not be played early however, as the loss of Tempo will often be too severe to overcome.
