[Twilight Flamecaller] – 3 mana, 2/2 minion, Battlecry: Deal 1 damage to all enemy minions
Great card in Arena. It’s like Arcane Explosion with a body. FYI his damage doesn’t get boosted by Spell Damage.
[Shatter] – 2 mana spell, Destroy a Frozen minion.
Not many really good options for using this card with the current Freeze cards. However one good combo is Ice Lance and then Shatter. A 3 mana 2 card destroy a minion of your choice option.
[Servant of Yogg-Saron] – 5 mana, 5/4 minion, Battlecry: Cast a random spell that costs (5) or less (targets chosen randomly).
Best played when you don’t have ANY minions on the board and your opponent does. The typical result of this card is “Played this. It fireballed itself.” or “Played on a board with 2 enemy minions, none of mine. It polymorphs itself.” Needless to say this is a random mess. And I love it.
[Forbidden Flame] – 0 mana spell, Spend all your Mana. Deal that much damage to a minion.
Best thing about the card is that it is a spell you can cast for 0 mana, triggering a lot of different things like Yogg-Saron. Occasionally you can use it for actual damage.
[Faceless Summoner] – 6 mana, 5/5 minion, Battlecry: Summon a random 3-cost minion.
All I am going to say. [Brann Bronzebeard] (3 mana minion)
[Demented Frostcaller] – 4 mana, 2/4 minion, After you cast a spell, Freeze a random enemy.
Good to combo with Ice Lance and Shatter.
[Cult Sorcerer] – 2 mana, 3/2 minion, Spell Damage +1. After you cast a spell, give your C’Thun +1/+1 (wherever it is).
Good in a C’Thun deck.
[Cabalist’s Tome] – 5 mana spell, Add 3 random Mage spells to your hand.
Awesome with your Yogg deck.
[Anomlus] – 8 mana minion, Deathrattle: Deal 8 damage to all minions.
Vastidious – [Forbidden Flame]
SquishieDragon – [Shatter]
Espo – [Forbidden Flame]

Hey guys and gals!!
Stepped away from Hearthstone for various reasons over the last couple of months, but I’m getting an itch to come back, so I need your help.
Can you all suggest a couple of decks that I can use to get back into the game. Meta decks? Fun decks? Ridiculous-combo-that-will-only-ever-work-once-in-a-blue-moon-but-when-it-does-its-amazing decks? I really don’t mind! Just need a little help reacquainting myself with the game.
Thanks in advance!
