Hearthstone includes numerous Charge cards. These are minion cards that can attack both your opponent’s hero or minions on the board on the turn they’re played. Therefore, Charge cards are widely included in aggro decks that are designed to defeat opponents sooner rather than later. Charge minions can be especially useful for finishing off opponents, and they’re often played as finishing cards. Below are some of the best Charge cards in Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft.
1. Kayn Sunfury
Kayn Sunfury is one of the best Demon Hunter cards in Hearthstone right now. This is a legendary four-mana minion with three and five attack and health values. Kayn’s stat value is good for a Charge card, but what sets it apart from the rest is its effect that enables all your minions in play to bypass Taunt. Therefore, Kayn Sunfury, and all other minions you have on the board with it, can attack your opponent’s hero even when your opponent has a Taunt minion in play. This makes Kayn an ideal Charge card as Taunt minions will usually block them attacking the hero.
2. Grommash Hellscream
This is a monster of a minion from Hearthstone’s Classic set. Grommash is a legendary Charge minion with 4/9 stats you can play for eight mana. This minion’s four attack value will increase to 10 when it doesn’t have maximum health. Thus, Grommash becomes a formidable minion when it has lost some health. This card combines especially well with Whirlwind and Cruel Taskmaster, which you can play on the same turn to increase its attack to 10 or even 12. Then you can inflict 10 or 12 damage on your opponent’s hero on the turn you play Grommash.
3. Leeroy Jenkins
Jenkins is one of the most cherished finishing cards in Hearthstone that’s now in the game’s Hall of Fame collection. It is a legendary five-mana minion with 6/2 stats that adds a couple of 1/1 minions to your opponent’s side of the board. Leeroy’s six attack, which can be increased with combos, making it one of the best minions for finishing off games. Blessed Champions, Rockbiter, Cold Blood, Cruel Taskmaster, and Blessing of Might are just some of the cards you can combine Jenkins with on the turn you play it to increase its attack. With such combo potential, Leeroy remains one of the most widely played Charge cards in the Wild game.
4. King Krush
The mighty King Krush is a legendary 8/8 Charge card for Hunter-class decks you can play for nine mana. This card doesn’t have anywhere near as much combo potential as Jenkins. However, KK is a much more balanced minion that you can inflict at least eight damage on your opponent with. As Krush has eight health, it also has a decent chance of sticking to the board for another attack. So, this Charge minion isn’t just played as a finisher.
You can play King Krush for seven mana with the Dinotamer Brann card. That card summons King Krush so long as your deck doesn’t include any duplicates when you play it. Brann is a must-have card for all Highlander Hunter decks that don’t include any duplicates.
5. Old Murk-Eye
This four-mana card adds a 2/4 Charge minion to the battlefield. That might not sound so great, but Old Murk’s attack value increases by one for each Murloc on the board. For example, four Murlocs on the battlefield will increase this minion’s attack from two to six. There are numerous one and two-mana Murlocs you can play this card in combination with to boost its attack. Thus, Old Murk-Eye is a great card for Murloc zoo decks.
Those are a few of the best Charge cards in Hearthstone to attack your opponents with. They’re great cards to apply the coup de grâce during your matches.
