Table of Contents

Shadow Ascendant is a Priest-only minion. This card can be obtained from Knights of the Frozen Throne 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

Shadow Ascendant is a solid 2-Mana card that can help create a stronger early-game for Priests. The card itself does come with some risk, as it is incredibly weak if is the only minion on the board. However, if you do have a minion on board it represents at least 3/3 stats for 2 Mana. It is particularly strong if you use it as a follow-up to Northshire Cleric to create a 2/4 and 2/2 minion on turn 2.

2. Constructed Play

In Constructed, Shadow Ascendant is a fairly weak card. As Priest decks are typically very passive in the early-game, it is not consistently possible to get value from the card on turn 2 unless you opt to play a more aggressive Priest variant.

3. Arena

In Arena, Shadow Ascendant is a reasonable card. If you are able to keep it alive for multiple turns, it can provide huge value. However, in order to do this you need to be ahead beforehand, so this card is fairly poor if played from behind which makes it one of the many "win more" cards in the game.

4. Icy Veins Decks that Contain this Card
