Warrior is one of the nine hero classes in Hearthstone. This is a class that has some fast and deadly minions at its disposal. Warrior players can also choose from a good selection of armor-generating cards that, when combined with the Armor Up Hero Power, make this class one of the best for control decks. These are some of the best Warrior-class cards.
Omega Devastator is an epic card from the Rise of Shadows set. This is a 4/5 minion players can play for four mana. This card offers pretty good stat value, but the best thing is that it inflicts 10 damage when players have 10 or more mana. That’s a devastating late game Battlecry effect which can annihilate most minions. Thus, Omega Devastator can be considered a hard removal card; and it’s undoubtedly a great addition to control Warrior decks.
Dr. Boom is a legendary card and the star of the Boomsday Project collection. This card might have been nerfed from seven to nine mana, but it’s still among the best hero cards and is a big part of control Warrior decks. The nerf means players have to wait a few turns longer to play Dr. Boom, but it’s still a great hero card.
Dr. Boom gives players five random, but very strong, Hero Powers that swap each turn. Blast Shield gives seven armor, Kaboom inflicts one damage on all enemy minions, Micro-Squad summons a triumvirate of 1/1 Mech minions, Deliver Drone discovers a Mech, and Zap Cannon zaps three damage on a target. On top of that, the card gives players’ Mech minions Rush for the rest of a match. Thus, Dr. Boom is a considerable asset in mechanized decks and still well worth including in Warrior control decks.
Brawl is the best Warrior-class board clearance card. This epic five-mana spell card clears all but one minion from the board. The one minion that remains is completely random. Thus, this is an ideal card to have up your sleeve when your opponent has a grip on the board as it can potentially destroy seven enemy minions in a single turn. It will also wipe out most of your own minions, but that won’t matter much if you only have one or two cheap minions in play. Brawl is widely included in control warrior decks to counter zoo and aggro decks.
Warpath is basically a two-mana Whirlwind card that inflicts one damage on all minions in play. As Whirlwind is a one-mana card, some might wonder why that’s not a better alternative. Warpath’s Echo effect enables players to play it up to five times with 10 mana. Thus, this card can inflict up to five damage on all your opponent’s minions if needed, which makes it a better area of effect card than Whirlwind. Warpath can also come in handy for triggering Enrage effects that boost attack stats for damaged minions.
Eternium Rover is a mechanized one-mana minion that you can craft for just 40 mana. That’s a really good craft for a mech which boasts both a good effect and stats. The minion’s 1/3 attack and health stats are great for a one-mana card. It also gives you two armor when it takes damage. Thus, without any buffing, this minion can potentially give you up to six more armor. As it’s a Mech, Eternium Rover can give you even more armor when magnetized with Magnetic minions. So, this is another must have card for Warrior decks.
Restless Mummy is a new addition to Warrior-class decks from the Saviors of Uldum card set. This is a four-mana 3/2 minion with both Rush and Reborn effects. That enables you to initiate two attacks on your opponent’s minions with Restless Mummy on the turn its played. When the minion is lost on the first attack, the Reborn effect will revive it with one health. Consequently, Restless Mummy can inflict up to six damage on a minion in one turn, which will be enough to wipe out most minions below the six-mana mark. Thus, this is strong Rush minion to have in your deck.
So, take your pick from some of those great Warrior-class cards! In addition, Armorsmith, Shield Slam, Frothing Berserker, Shield Block, and Grommash Hellscream are other Warrior cards that are worth noting.
