Ever wanted to dabble in blood magic?

Many new heroes have been spotted using dangerous Blood Magic in this week's Tavern Brawl. Create your own deck, but spells will cost health instead of mana!


Back to TopTips and Tricks

  • Forbidden spells will cost health equal to the amount of mana is would take. If you have 3 mana crystals remaining and you play Forbidden Ritual, it will cost 3 health and you've receive 3 1/1 tokens.

  • You will not be able to play spells that cost more than your remaining life pool, even if you are immune.

  • We recommend some of the following cards:

    • Violet Illusionist - Who needs to spend health to cast spells when you've completely immune on your turn!

    • Animated Armor - This will reduce the cost of all spells to 1 health!

    • Prophet Velen - Want to try a OTK deck? Prophet Velen will surely help you out!

    • Loatheb - Will increase the health cost of any spells by 5.

    • Fireballx2 and Pyroblastx2 for the ultimate Turn 1 OTK.
