Shadow Word: Horror — Priest Card

Table of Contents

Shadow Word: Horror is a Priest-only spell. This card can be obtained from Whispers of the Old Gods 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 Word: Horror is usually too situational to be included on its own in a deck. Although it is a good way to deal with small minions, the 4-Mana cost means that some of the opposing minions will be out of range of the Horror by the time you are able to cast it. However, when combined with Pint-Size Potion, Shadow Word: Horror becomes a board clear in many situations, and becomes a far more powerful card.

2. Constructed Play

Shadow Word: Horror is a good card in conjunction with Pint-Size Potion. In most situations, this combo would be too clunky to justify its inclusion, as there are far better options in Priest, such as Dragonfire Potion. However, in Highlander Priest, where you are only able to play one of each removal spell, this combo becomes a lot more valuable.

3. Arena

Shadow Word: Horror is a bad card in Arena. It will rarely kill enough minions to justify the Mana cost. Not only is it expensive to cast, but it will also usually have to be played as early as possible to justify its inclusion, which will mean missing putting a key 4-drop minion into play.
