The functionality on Hearthstone's search has been greatly improved in Patch 4.2.0. You can now search several new words and for ranges within those categories.


Hearthstone's search has often been criticised for its lack of options. Many of those concerns have finally been addressed in the latest patch. Firstly, you can now search for "golden", "extra", "missing", and "new". "Golden" shows just your gold cards, while "extra" shows all of the cards that you own which would be disenchanted with the "Disenchant extra cards" button. Searching for "missing" shows which cards you do not own. "New" now only shows new cards, rather than new cards and the cards with the word "new" in their text. (Spellbender was an example of this.) The latter is a cosmetic change, as searching for "new!" already returned these results.

On top of these changes, there is now a selection of ranged searches that can be performed. These include "attack", "health", and "mana", which relate to the corresponding numbers on a card. You can also search for "owned", to search your collection by how many of a card you own. The range can be entered by a colon with a single number, a colon followed by "+" or "-", or a colon followed by a range in the form "x-y".

Finally you can now search by "artist". You can search for their first name or last name, but not both.

I was able to search by artist before. I don't think it's a new option. In the end, HearthStone Deck Tracker was using it when you wanted to "recreate" a deck.

The difference is you now HAVE to use the artist: command. Before you could just type their name in.

      The latest Hearthstone community contribution allows you to train the skills needed to master Combo Priest: quick thinking, fast mouse movements, strategic decisions and on-the-spot calculations. What's more to ask?!
      Combo or OTK or APM Priest is a reiteration of Combo and Vivid Nightmare Priest that was born with The Boomsday Project thanks to two cards: Topsy Turvy and Test Subject. Dog is credited as the creator and true master of the deck:
      Many have subsequently tried and failed to pilot the deck, which can require almost 100 moves during the 75 seconds of a single turn. Pro players like Trump and Thijs have hilariously failed, while others like Disguised Toast and Kolento kept trying until they got the hang of it.
      Right now, you might be dreading that you don't have the IQ to play this deck. Fear no more: everything can be practiced and Patashu has made the tool for it! Combo Priest Simulator allows you to practice the OTK combo on your browser, while also timing you. You can change the parameters of the starting gamestate, too.
      In all seriousness, the deck's winrate is below average and it's honestly too much trouble for too little gain. Then again, slamming your opponent's face for 100+ damage is quite satisfactory. It would be awesome if someone was brave enough to bring this deck at a tournament: it would be the casters' nightmare!
      Apart from Combo Priest Simulator, we have a guide for Topsy Turvy OTK Priest here on Icy Veins; the guide breaks down the necessary steps of the combo in a useful priority list. Alternatively, you can listen to Aleco trying to explain how the deck works to Patrick (and actually succeeding) in the latest Icy Veins Podcast!
