Molten Giant — Neutral Card

Table of Contents

Molten Giant 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

Molten Giant has the most expensive Mana cost in the game, but that cost comes down rapidly as you take damage. Unfortunately, it is difficult to set up a situation where you can reliably take enough, but not too much, damage to take advantage of the Molten Giant's ability. When combined with Naga Sea Witch, the card will have its base Mana cost reduced to 5, which means that if you have taken five damage you can play it for free.

2. Constructed Play

Molten Giant is rarely seen in Standard play due to the difficulty in consistently taking a lot of damage without dying. It is, however, a commonly seen card in Wild decks, where the interaction with Naga Sea Witch allows it to be regularly cast for 0 Mana. On the occasions it is seen in other decks, it is usually with the benefit of an Ice Block for protection and Open the Waygate to allow the Giant to attack without the owner dying after the Block is removed.

3. Arena

Molten Giant is a poor card in Arena. It usually works out that if you are low enough on Health to be able to cast it, you are facing down an army of enemy minions that can just ignore it and continue to inflict damage. The time which the Giant spends in your hand doing nothing is usually better spent playing another card to try to not get into trouble in the first place. It is slightly better in Rogue and Warlock decks, as they have a greater chance of losing health without being in trouble on the board.
