Table of Contents

Medivh's Valet 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

Medivh's Valet provides great value any time that you can activate it. Although the Valet is naturally played along with Ice Block due to the fact that the Secret will usually remain in play for a long time, it will work well in any Mage deck that revolves around Secrets. This can apply both to Control decks, which use Ice Block as a delaying tactic, and to Tempo decks, which use several Secrets to maintain their pressure. The fact that Medivh's Valet is a 2/3 for 2 Mana means that even on the occasions that you do not get to activate it, little is lost in terms of value.

2. Constructed Play

With the introduction of Arcanologist in Journey to Un'Goro, Secret decks were given a new lease of life. Medivh's Valet was already a staple card in Control Mage decks, thanks to Ice Block, but with access to multiple secrets in a deck, the Valet also now finds a home in Tempo orientated decks. Even though some of the Secrets might be triggered immediately, there are often enough of them that Medivh's Valet will get activated sooner rather than later.

3. Arena

Medivh's Valet is a good card in Arena because it is fine as a 2/3 for 2 Mana. Most times that you get it to activate, it provides a large tempo swing. This can often be enough to start a snowball effect in your favour. It should be noted that this effect is much better earlier in the game, and if you have to play the minion as a 2/3 with no effect, it can be better than waiting for the diminished value late in the game.
