General Comments

Helpless Hatchling is a versatile early-game minion that reduces the cost of a random Beast in hand. While the random target of the Deathrattle can weaken the card, playing out undesirable targets before trigging the Deathrattle can greatly improve the card.


Constructed Play

In Constructed, Helpless Hatchling naturally fits Hunter decks due to their natural usage of Beasts. It can be used to speed up aggressive decks or to reduce the cost of key minions in slower combo-oriented decks.



In Arena, Helpless Hatchling is a terrible card. Even if the Deathrattle effect finds a strong target, a 1 Mana 1/1 minion is far too weak in Arena and simply concedes card advantage to opponents.
