Puzzles and Hearthstone™ 4: The Puzzling

Welcome back to another exciting brain-teaser with our fourth installment of Puzzles and Hearthstone! Today, we’re going to challenge your Hearthstone knowledge and show your three different puzzles, all of which can be solved in the current turn. Can you figure out how to win in these tricky situations?


Difficulty: 2/5 Mana Crystals

Your opponent, Thrall the Shaman, summoned a few helpful totems and minions to come to his aid – and just when you think things couldn’t get any worse, he equipped the legendary Doomhammer and began swinging! Things are looking bleak for you, Rexxar the Hunter, but you may have some beastly tricks up your sleeve! Say “Sic’ em!” and destroy Thrall this turn!

Thrall has 17 Health remaining and 10 Mana. His minions include a Fire Elemental, Healing Totem, Ogre Magi, Flametongue Totem and a Thrallmar Farseer. He also has a Doomhammer equipped with 4 charges left.

You have three Health left, and you only have a damaged (2/1) Tundra Rhino in play. You have 10 Mana at your disposal and these cards in your hand: Kill Command, Timber Wolf, Savannah Highmane, Ironfur Grizzly, and a Wolfrider.

Defeat Thrall this turn!


Difficulty: 3/5 Mana Crystals

Anduin Wrynn has some pretty daunting minions at his disposal: A pair of Booty Bay Bodyguards flank Alexstrasza, the Dragon Queen herself! Lucky for you, you are Uther Lightbringer, and a Dragon and some Goblins are no match for a champion of the Light! Defy Anduin and his trio of powerful minions by ending the game with a Pala-win!

Your opponent, Anduin the Priest, has 13 Health remaining and has a Booty Bay Bodyguard, Alexstrasza and another Booty Bay Bodyguard in play. He has six cards in his hand.

You are the Paladin, Uther Lightbringer. You currently have a Bloodfen Raptor and a Silver Hand Recruit in play. Your hand contains: Hammer of Wrath, Blessed Champion, Argent Protector, Arcane Golem, Blessing of Might, Truesilver Champion, and Redemption. You have 10 Mana. Defeat Anduin Wrynn!


Difficulty: 4/5 Mana Crystals

In our last puzzle, your opponent Garrosh Hellscream is charging into the fray alongside his father, Grommash Hellscream! Garrosh wields an Arcanite Reaper, and Grommash is Enraged! Things are looking bad for the Druid, Malfurion Stormrage. Show Garrosh that the power of nature isn’t all bark and no bite; it’s both!

Garrosh the Warrior has 21 Health remaining and wields an Arcanite Reaper with 5 Attack and 1 Durability left. He has Grommash Hellscream in play, who is currently 12/8! He has seven cards in his hand.

You are the Druid, Malfurion Stormrage, who currently has a Flesheating Ghoul in play. The cards in your hand consist of: Leeroy Jenkins, Innervate, Wild Pyromancer, Moonfire, Mark of Nature, and Force of Nature. With 10 Mana to use, can you triumph over Garrosh this turn? We’re rooting for you, so tree-t this seriously!
