Table of Contents

Cairne Bloodhoof is a neutral 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

Cairne Bloodhoof is an extremely valuable minion if the game progresses slowly enough for you to gain value out of it over multiple turns. However, in a fast metagame it can simply be too slow to represent strong value

2. Constructed Play

In Constructed, Cairne has mostly been phased out of common decks, not because of any particular deficiency of the card, but simply because the 6 Mana slot is extremely competitive, and most decks favour other options such as Sylvanas Windrunner in this spot.

3. Arena

Cairne Bloodhoof is a very powerful card in Arena. One of its few downsides in Constructed is that is a very slow card, and can often be punished by decks who can effectively ignore it. In Arena, since the format is much slower, you will often have more time to get full value out of this card, making it a very strong pick.
