Ice Block — Mage Card

Table of Contents

Ice Block is a Mage-only spell. 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

Ice Block can provide you with an additional turn to survive. However, unless that extra turn allows you to do something to dramatically change the state of the game, it is useless. This means that you need a specific deck built to take advantage of Ice Block.

2. Constructed Play

In Constructed, Ice Block's usage is reserved for very specific decks. Simply inserting Ice Block into most Mage decks will not achieve anything, since one extra turn will not change anything if you are far enough behind for your opponent to be able to activate it. It is best used in extremely slow Control decks, or in Combo decks that are simply looking to survive as many turns as possible to be able to activate their game winning combo.

3. Arena

Ice Block is poor in Arena. Your deck will rarely have the necessary cards to make one extra turn mean anything. You can pick this card slightly more highly if you have Mad Scientist in your deck, but it will still prove mostly ineffective.
