Unwilling Sacrifice is a Warlock-only spell. This card was introduced with Knights of the Frozen Throne and can now only be obtained through crafting. Below the card images, you will find explanations to help you use the card optimally in every game mode of Hearthstone.


General Comments

Unwilling Sacrifice is a cheap removal spell that is very situational. As it requires a friendly minion to sacrifice to play, it can be hard to use. As a result, it is only useful if it can be combined with a card that can generate cheap minions or a friendly minion that is almost dead anyway.


Constructed Play

In Constructed, Unwilling Sacrifice does not directly fit into any deck. Slow Warlock decks, which desire hard removal, do not have easy access to cheap minions to sacrifice whereas Aggro decks like Zoo that do have access to such minions generally do not require hard removal and would rather use Mana developing the board.



In Arena, Unwilling Sacrifice is a good card. Although it may not always be possible to find a good friendly minion to sacrifice with the effect, it is worth considering sacrificing a stronger minion if needed, as losing card advantage is insignificant as Warlock due to the Life Tap Hero Power.
