The Darkness — Neutral Card

Last updated on Dec 06, 2017 at 16:11 by Pesty 14 comments

Table of Contents

The Darkness 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

The Darkness is an extremely powerful minion that shuffles 3 Darkness Candles into the opponent's deck. Until all 3 Candles have been drawn, The Darkness simply takes up space on the board by remaining dormant. Although it has extremely powerful stats, as the minion eventually activates from opponent's card draw, it is likely to activate on their turn and therefore gives time them the ability to remove the minion before it is able to attack.

2. Constructed Play

In Constructed, The Darkness is far too slow and vulnerable to removal to be used as a legitimate threat in decks. However, the ability to shuffle multiple copies of a card into opponents' decks allows the card to be used as a niche tech card to target Highlander decks.

3. Arena

In Arena, The Darkness is a terrible card. As Arena games usually finish while players still have plenty of cards in their deck, opponents will almost never draw enough cards to allow The Darkness to activate.

4. Icy Veins Decks that Contain this Card

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