General Comments

Dreadsteed is a card that may look like poor value on the surface, but it represents consistent long term value over a game that lasts many turns. Gaining an extra 1/1 of value every turn after your additional investment can be quite beneficial in a slower deck. However, Dreadsteed is also able to be abused by opposing cards such as Grim Patron or Acolyte of Pain that can use it to repeatedly activate beneficial effects. It should also be noted that any Demon buff effects that are used on this card, such as Demonfire, are not retained once the Deathrattle activates. With the release of the Knights of the Frozen Throne expansion, the Deathrattle effect of Dreadsteed was changed from resummoning the card immediately to the end of the current turn.


Constructed Play

In Constructed, Dreadsteed can be a useful tool in a very slow, controlling Warlock deck, or in a heavy Control meta. For the post part, it should only be used in a deck that is built specifically to take advantage of having a constant board presence.



Dreadsteed is no longer available in Arena.
