Whirlwind is a Warrior-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

Whirlwind can work great with cards such as Acolyte of Pain or Grim Patron, or simply making your opponent's minions a suitable target for your Execute. On top of this it can be excellent against aggressive decks, especially Paladins running Muster for Battle.


Constructed Play

Whirlwind is essential in most Warrior decks, as it can form great synergies with cards such as Acolyte of Pain, Armorsmith, Frothing Berserker, and Grim Patron. It is also an excellent choice when the meta is filled with board flooding decks playing cards like Haunted Creeper or Muster for Battle.



Whirlwind is a fairly poor card in Arena. It does not have enough of an impact to justify it taking up a card slot in your deck. It can be used as an activator for Execute, but this interaction ends up as a 2-for-1 in your opponent's favour.
