Table of Contents

Crackle is a Shaman-only spell. 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

Crackle is a strong card with a high level of variance. While rolling a 6 on Crackle can swing the game enormously in your favour, if you are able to remove a large minion with it, rolling a 3 in these situations can be equally devastating.

2. Constructed Play

In Constructed, you will usually have to make the choice between the consistency of Lightning Bolt or the swing potential of Crackle in a standard Midrange Shaman deck. Alternatively, there is the potential for running both in a more aggressive Shaman as finishing burst damage.

3. Arena

Crackle is a good choice in Arena, despite the random nature of the card, you will often find situations where 75% or more of the possible outcomes represent good value for 2 Mana. If you have multiple Unbound Elementals in your deck, then you should value this, and other Overload cards more highly.
