Lightning Storm is a Shaman-only spell. Below the card images, you will find explanations to help you use the card optimally in every game mode of Hearthstone.


General Comments

Lightning Storm is Shaman's primary AoE spell. It is less than perfect in a lot of scenarios, and its randomness can sometimes hurt you, but generally it is a necessary evil in a lot of decks.


Constructed Play

Lightning Storm is used as the AoE of choice in most Shaman decks that require one. Some heavy Control decks choose to use Elemental Destruction instead, but the overall cost of this card is too severe for most decks to consider.



Lightning Storm is an excellent card in Arena. Due to its rarity, some experienced players will choose deliberately not to play around it, which lets you pick up incredible value with it if you do have one.
