Kirin Tor Mage — Mage Card

Table of Contents

Kirin Tor Mage 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

Kirin Tor Mage used to be popular as a Tempo play in Made decks that featured Secrets. However, since the release of Curse of Naxxramas, it has mostly been eclipsed by Mad Scientist, which serves a similar purpose but also draws the Secret out from your deck.

2. Constructed Play

Kirin Tor Mage is a rather poor choice for a Constructed deck unless you are determined to create a deck around Secrets.

3. Arena

Kirin Tor Mage is a reasonable value 3 Mana minion in Arena. It can trade effectively against premium 3-drops like Spider Tank and has a chance of trading up into some low-health 4-drops. If you have high quality Secrets in your deck already then you can pick this card more highly.
