Table of Contents

Dreadsteed is a Warlock-only minion. 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

Dreadsteed is a card that may look like poor value on the surface, but it represents consistent long term value over a game that lasts many turns. Gaining an extra 1/1 of value every turn after your additional investment can be quite beneficial in a slower deck. However, Dreadsteed is also able to be abused by opposing cards such as Grim Patron or Acolyte of Pain that can use it to repeatedly activate beneficial effects. It should also be noted that any Demon buff effects that are used on this card, such as Demonfire, are not retained once the Deathrattle activates.

2. Constructed Play

In Constructed, Dreadsteed can be a useful tool in a very slow, controlling Warlock deck, or in a heavy Control meta. For the post part, it should only be used in a deck that is built specifically to take advantage of having a constant board presence.

3. Arena

In Arena, Dreadsteed is a fairly average card. If you are able to survive the initial loss of Tempo from playing this card for 4 Mana, it will generate a lot of value for you over the course of the game. If you have a deck with multiple buff effects, such as Dark Iron Dwarf or Abusive Sergeant then you can pick this card more highly.
