General Comments

Frostbolt is an essential part of most Mage decks due to its versatility. It is able to deal with nearly any 2-drop on curve early in the game, or Freeze a large minion in the late-game for a turn if required. After the board has been dealt with, the damage to the opponent's face is also often relevant.


Constructed Play

In Constructed play, Frostbolt is almost an auto-include no matter which style of deck you are building. In fast tempo-based decks, Frostbolt's ability to clear early minions so that your own minions can get through is invaluable. In the late-game of such decks, the fact that the damage is able to hit the opponent directly often takes the pressure off your minions and enables you to close out the game when you have lost control of the board. In slower decks, Frostbolt is an extremely good board control card.



Frostbolt is a very powerful card in Arena. Due to the many different uses of the card, it does not pigeon-hole your draft if you take it early. The versatility of Frostbolt also means that you can take multiple copies without suffering from any significant issues with diminishing returns.
