Table of Contents

Archmage Antonidas is a Mage-only minion. This card can be obtained from expert 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

Archmage Antonidas is an extremely potent finisher for the Mage class. Although it requires very careful deck construction in order to ensure you gain value from it, in the right deck, it can swing even seemingly unwinnable games in your favour.

2. Constructed Play

In Constructed, Archmage Antonidas is used in two main Mage deck archetypes. Firstly, the Tempo Mage deck, which looks to use it as a finisher, generating Fireballs from cheap Spells like Arcane Missiles and Mirror Image. Secondly, Archmage Antonidas also sees play in the Freeze Mage deck, which uses Emperor Thaurissan to discount multiple spells and unleash devastating combos.

3. Arena

In Arena, Archmage Antonidas is strong, but not as strong as in Constructed. You will often be forced to play it on curve as a 7-drop and hope that it survives until the next turn in order to take over the game. This is less than ideal, but since drafting a deck with strong synergy is difficult in Arena, is often the best way to play the card.
