General Comments

The random nature on Astral Rift makes it far too slow and unreliable to be a good card for Constructed, but is a reasonable choice in most Arena decks as a potential 2 for 1.


Constructed Play

Astral Rift is far too slow for aggressive decks, and far too unreliable for Midrange or Control decks. There are likely much better cards for your Constructed deck.



A random minion is worth slightly less than one card of value in the Arena, which means that Astral rift is frequently a positive value card in Arena decks. It does not play to the board and is no replacement for a 2 drop minion, but it is a reasonably powerful tool for pulling ahead of your opponent in the mid to late game.
