Table of Contents

Babbling Book is a Mage-only minion. This card can be obtained in the One Night in Karazhan solo adventure. Below the card images, you will find explanations to help you use the card optimally in every game mode of Hearthstone.

1. General Comments

Babbling Book is a reasonable card as a 1-drop for Mage. Although the card you get is random, it will often find a use at some point in the game. In a Control deck, the Book can provide some defense against aggressive enemy 1 Health minions, while in a more tempo orientated deck, it is a good way to fill the curve if two Mana Wyrm is not enough.

2. Constructed Play

Babbling Book is an option in many Mage decks, but it really shines alongside Open the Waygate. Not only do all the normal strengths apply, but the fact that the spell is generated from outside the game helps with Quest progression as well. In Control decks, the early board presence is often helpful, while in Tempo decks, the extra minion on board can sometimes attack for several points of damage while the opponent is taking care of more important threats.

3. Arena

In Arena, Babbling Book will often be a nuisance on Turn 1. Backed up with the Mage's ability to ping, it can kill a reasonable percentage of opposing 2-drops. The downside with this is that you will often be playing from behind on the board, but Mage is comfortable playing that way, and the free random spell gained should put you in a good spot as the game goes on.
