Research Project is a Mage-only spell. This card was introduced with The Boomsday Project and can now only be obtained through crafting. Below the card images, you will find explanations to help you use the card optimally in every game mode of Hearthstone.


General Comments

Research Project is a very comparable card to Coldlight Oracle, having many of the same applications. It is an excellent card for Combo decks which need to quickly cycle through its deck, and a relatively weak card in decks that are trying to play a "fair" game.


Constructed Play

One-turn-kill decks with Archmage Antonidas are happy to run 2 copies of Research Project, as the card advantage it gives to your opponent is far less important than the ability to quickly cycle through the deck for key combo pieces. Outside of combo decks, Research Project is a bit too slow for aggressive decks and makes no sense whatsoever in Control decks.



Playing Research Project will put you down one card against your opponent (each player draws 2 cards, but you spent 1 card to do so). Never pick this card in your Arena drafts.
