Table of Contents

Lava Shock is a Shaman-only spell. This card can be obtained in the Blackrock Mountain 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

Lava Shock is a unique card that has the ability to unlock your Overloaded Mana Crystals, it is flexible in that it can be used on either the turn you cause the Overload, or the turn after when the Overload is in effect. It can create some powerful plays if used on the right turn, but can also sometimes be used as an underwhelming 2 Mana removal spell.

2. Constructed Play

In Constructed, Lava Shock can be used in a deck that plays a lot of Overload cards. The main issue this card runs into is an indirect one, as the best value it can get is to unlock the Mana locked by an Earth Elemental or Neptulon, however both of these cards are very weak to the common Big Game Hunter

3. Arena

Lava Shock is an acceptable card in Arena. It will most often be used as a 2 Mana removal spell, which is weak in comparison to other spells like Frostbolt. However, it is likely that every Arena draft contains a few Overload cards that can increase the potential value of the card.
