Novice Engineer — Neutral Card

Last updated on Jun 15, 2015 at 15:09 by Sottle 4 comments

Table of Contents

Novice Engineer is a neutral minion. 2 copies of this card are given to you with the Basic set of the game. You receive a golden version of this card for reaching Level 59 and 60 with Druid. Below the card images, you will find explanations to help you use the card optimally in every game mode of Hearthstone.

1. General Comments

Novice Engineer is one of the few immediate card draw effects in the game that is available to all Classes. Despite this, it is often quite a low impact minion, having one of the lowest possible stat distributions.

2. Constructed Play

Novice Engineer is usually only used in very specific Combo decks, since it is able to cheaply draw a card that you can use immediately, as opposed to the delayed effect of a card like Loot Hoarder.

3. Arena

Novice Engineer is a fairly poor choice in Arena. Although it replaces itself in your hand, and will therefore potentially create card advantage, it is much more likely to represent a significant loss of Tempo, as your opponent will be able to gain an advantage on the board with a superior minion.
