General Comments

Air Elemental is a resilient minion that also functions as a cheap activator for Elemental Synergy cards. As it cannot be targeted by Spells or Hero Powers, it serves as a great turn 1 play and forces opponents to trade into it or kill it with an AoE Spell on a later turn.


Constructed Play

In Constructed, Air Elemental is a solid card for Elemental decks. Having access to a 1-Mana Elemental in hand can often be invaluable, ensuring Elemental synergy effects can be activated and no value is lost.



In Arena, Air Elemental is a weak card. 1-Mana minions tend to be undesirable in Arena is they will often by removed by an opposing 2-drop and Air Elemental is no exception.
