Table of Contents

Arcane Missiles is a Mage-only spell. 2 copies of this card are given to you with the Basic set of the game. You receive a golden version of this card for reaching Level 32 and 34 with Mage. Below the card images, you will find explanations to help you use the card optimally in every game mode of Hearthstone.

1. General Comments

Although 3 damage for 1 Mana is an acceptable ratio, the effect of Arcane Missiles is random and often requires an additional synergy like Spell Damage or Flamewaker to make it truly effective.

2. Constructed Play

Arcane Missiles is commonly seen in Constructed in Tempo Mage decks that include lots of cheap Spells in order to synergise with Flamewaker, Sorcerer's Apprentice, and Mana Wyrm. It is also a solid tech choice when the meta is full of minion flooding decks like Secret Paladin.

3. Arena

Arcane Missiles is a fairly average card in Arena. Even when used against a small minion like a 3/2, it only has a 50% chance of destroying it. If you have sources of Spell Damage, Mana Wyrms, or Flamewakers in your deck, it can be more effective.
