Grand Archivist — Neutral Card

Last updated on Nov 29, 2017 at 13:37 by L0rinda 84 comments

Table of Contents

Grand Archivist is a neutral minion. Below the card images, you will find explanations to help you use the card optimally in every game mode of Hearthstone.

1. General Comments

Grand Archivist can represent a lot of value, if it manages to cast a big spell from your deck, and chooses the correct targets. For this reason, Spells which only target the opponent and their board, such as Flamestrike, are usually a better fit than cards such as Pyroblast which might end up being counter-productive.

2. Constructed Play

In Constructed play, Grand Archivist is a build-around card. This means that you need to consider how to build your deck to take advantage of the ability. In the case of the Archivist, you need to get a lot of value from its ability to make up for the lack of stats, and so any decks you build with Grand Archivist included will need to have expensive spells and a slow gameplan.

3. Arena

In Arena, Grand Archivist is a poor card. The minion's stats are nowhere near big enough to be worth 8-Mana, and the ability is far too difficult to control.

4. Icy Veins Decks that Contain this Card

There are currently no decks on Icy Veins that use this card.
