Table of Contents

Medivh, the Guardian is a neutral 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, the Guardian is usually used in heavy Control decks which include high Mana cost spells. One of the issues with most expensive spells is that you do not develop your board on the turn at which you cast them. Medivh's Weapon, Atiesh solves that by developing a large minion at the same time. Although Atiesh is weak to Weapon removal, the 7/7 body of Medivh often presents the opponent with a difficult choice to either deal with the Weapon, or deal with the board.

2. Constructed Play

Medivh, the Guardian's strength is in Constructed play, where it can be paired with synergetic high Mana cost cards. Originally Medivh was mostly seen in Mage, and used with Firelands Portal, but it is seeing use in other classes now, notably in Priest with Free From Amber and Mind Control, as well as Druid with Ultimate Infestation and other expensive spells that Druid ramps into.

3. Arena

Medivh, the Guardian is a playable card in Arena. If you manage to get an activation or two from Atiesh, it will make a big difference to the game. The main problem in using Medivh in Arena is that your spells will generally be cheaper, and it might not be convenient to hold them until you have played Medivh. With this in mind you should consider your curve and spells carefully before choosing Medivh. As it is reasonably easy to replace by another expensive minion, you should not force the issue if it looks like it does not fit in your deck.
