The League of EVIL sent the master of the Arena one of their patented puzzle boxes. After making short work of the box, Octavian “Kripparrian” Morosan revealed Conjurer’s Calling.

The card is a three mana cost Spell for the Mage class. Conjurer’s Calling allows you to destroy a minion and then summon two minions of the same cost to replace it. This card definitely appears to have synergy with the newly-revealed Mage Legendary Khadgar. Since Khadgar forces your cards that summon minions to summon twice as many, you can bet Conjurer’s Calling will accompany him in a variety of different Mage decks.

Kripp revealed the card on stream after a short struggle against the League of EVIL’s puzzle box. Unfortunately for the League of EVIL, Kripp’s superior game mechanics within the realm of puzzle solving were too much for their box to handle.

Conjurer’s Calling

“Meant” to stop any imporant Value or OTK decks that your oppoment might have, however they have a chance to gain more Value of what previously had in terms of what they had. Or unless it’s taunt and your on a Finisher.

Now, you can use this upon yourself as well, and you can turn it into some sort of Tempo-style deck as you can widen your board. Overall an unusually cool way to stop a minion. You could even go for 6 Mana, where you take down your own voodoo doll, and that voodoo doll stops the enemy minion while you get a much better body for 3 mana.

I have no idea if this card will see any High-levels of Play, but it will be experimented. I mean, if people hated Big Bad Archmage, then you would probaply play this card. They could also play Cojurer’s Calling instead and spend 9 Mana on Carine Bloodhoof for “3 6-Costed” Minions and seeing what they get.

Lots of Experimentation added into this card, and it’s pretty fun to use. But when things get serious, I wonder if they will either actually keep it, Niche it, or Dust it.

How to get

Conjurer's Calling can be obtained through Rise of Shadows card packs, through crafting, or as an Arena reward. It can also be obtained from Ranked Season chest.

My Opinions

Conjurer's Calling is a great 4-cost twinspell which helps you to apply more pressure on the board by using it on a high cost minion to get two minions of the same cost. This is very good with giants as you can cheat them early and get more from it. It is also decent with anything above 3 mana. You can also use it as a worse polymorph in emergency situations. For ex: Killing a Questing Adventurer. It is also used to activate Deathrattle effects.

Having the twinspell helps to apply more pressure again later. It has great synergy with Khadgar, summoning 4 minions for 4 mana.

For similar reasons, it is also great in arena.

How Good Is Conjurer’s Calling? (My Card Reveal!) - Rise of Shadows Hearthstone

Dr. Boom and Conjurer’s Calling: Is the hatred justified?

Whether you’re suiting up on turn seven or creating a giant for three mana and threatening to do the same again, it’s quite obvious that your opponent’s somewhat pissed off by the event, perhaps even joining the chorus of players who deem these cards worthy of a nerf.

Luna’s Pocket Galaxy was also firmly added to the community’s hit list following the Masters Tour event in Seoul. While these cards all promote the kind of gameplay that makes Hearthstone stand out, it feels like Team 5 could never really nail the power level and the gameplay experience of these effects from a competitive standpoint at the same time.


"Created by something-something"—the boon and the bane of the modern Hearthstone experience. This is something I’ve often discussed as part of these columns, and it’s interesting to think back how my own understanding and approach to this design philosophy has evolved over the years. I was never a fan—my favorite deck was Healadin, after all, an archetype which lined up its 30 cards against yours and wagered that once they’ve all neutralized one another over time, the Paladin hero power will prevail in the end—but I grew to accept it over time as a core principle of Hearthstone. Since the decks are fairly small (30 cards instead of 60 in Magic) and there’s no variance in the mana increase over the individual turns (again, like lands in MTG), it’s important to ensure that the games don’t play out the same way over time.

I, for one, wouldn’t mind that so much, but as it turns out, there’s only a fairly small cross-section between avid chess fans and committed card game players, and therefore we shouldn’t be the ones the game is designed around. In fact, this kind of consistency was what made Baku and Genn so heavily disliked—the hero powers were so strong that it was a viable strategy to simply just use them instead of your cards for multiple turns, greatly streamlining the strategy of both aggro (Odd Rogue and Odd Paladin) and control (Odd Warrior and Evenlock) decks.

With the aforementioned constraints in mind—not to mention the fact that we’re looking at a digital card game—Hearthstone’s developers opted for random resource generation to create unique game states across the different matchups. In fact, even Classic had a card like this in the form of Ysera, and there’s a reason why the later additions to the evergreen sets also heavily featured this kind of a card generation (see Pilfer, Tome of Intellect, Call of the Void, and now Brightwing).

The problem with this, of course, is that the other player will only be presented with a feeling of helplessness and a sense that whatever happened in the match “should not have” occurred based on Hearthstone’s fundamental framework. Whenever you add ten extra cards to your 30-card deck, deal double-digit damage with four or less mana, summon stats which at least double the vanilla test’s baseline requirements, or use a fourth Omega Devastator to clear your board, it’s all a frustrating experience.

This is especially true because of how limited the interaction opportunities are on your opponent’s turn (we’re looking at Secrets and nothing else, really), and in a game as tempo-heavy as Hearthstone, one unexpectedly powerful outcome from a large pool of potential effects can make or break your match. As popular as the Death Knights were, the one-card inevitability of this kind of a design clearly turned them from fan favorites to nerf candidates over time, and it’s interesting that Hagatha the Witch seems to be the most manageable one out of them all.

Old problems, new solutions

None of this is new, and these are arguably the very same concerns which plagued Hearthstone’s competitive scene since Goblins vs. Gnomes was dropped on the playerbase. Currently, it’s Dr. Boom, Mad Genius and Conjurer’s Calling which are carried towards the guillotine by the Reddit mob, and they are interesting in the sense that they highlight how the previously-perceived issues about these cards don’t necessarily apply.

One of the major criticisms in the past revolved around the unpredictably large pool of potential outcomes, and one of the supposed solutions was to reveal the generated cards to both sides. Well, we’ve got something similar with Dr. Boom’s four hero powers, and it’s safe to say it hasn’t alleviated the community’s concerns. Similarly, early-game RNG effects like Knife Juggler were sufficiently nerfed and cheap cards with such swing effects are no longer printed; and in fact, Conjurer’s Calling’s intended use on Mountain Giants both requires the Mage player to skip multiple turns and guarantees a small and predictable pool of outcomes with the 12-cost minions. If anything, the real concern with Mages is that they can essentially enjoy full turns during the setup period by re-filling their hand with Mana Cyclone.

In an ideal world, resource generation cards like these are fairly slow, and they have low tempo impact and a predictable pool of outcomes. Unfortunately, the first two of these requirements will likely also consign any such card into the dustbin of pack fillers, with way too low an impact to see Constructed play. Therein lies the real design conundrum of Hearthstone. The streamlined gameplay experience necessitates card generation as the source of variance in game states, but it’s almost impossible to nail the power level of these cards in a way that they create enough decision points for the player who plays them without making it feel solitaire-like for the opponents.

That said, having a control deck with the capability to play 40-50 cards while generating what is essentially and infinite source of removal over the long run thanks to Dr. Boom, Mad Genius is clearly over the top. However, much like how I’d peg Mage’s hand fill options as the real culprit of the issues with Conjurer’s Mage, I think there’s also a good argument to be made that Warrior’s card generation with Omega Assembly and Frighetend Flunky are what push it over the top, even if the hero card is the glue that holds it all together. In the end, these considerations will likely have a great impact on the eventual nerf decisions.

Whatever your feelings are on this specific gameplay mechanic, it’s been made abundantly clear that it’s here to stay. Card-creating cards have been on the rise in volume since GvG and they show no signs of stopping; the real question is whether Team 5 can eventually nail the formula where they create enough gameplay variety to be interesting while also hitting just the right power level where they are viable but not meta-deforming like some of the current (and past) problem cards are.

Conjurer's Calling(90984).png


  • This card's effect destroys a minion, resolving the minion's Deathrattle effect if any,[1] then summons two random minions of the same Cost for the owner's side.


Conjurer's Calling has similar applications to Evolve, and can be used to turn a low-stat minion into two minions with potentially better stats. Since it has Twinspell, it's a very value-efficient card and can be used to reroll a bad minion once more. Khadgar is extremely effective with this card, summoning 4 minions for the price of 4 mana. It can also be used as a Deathrattle activator for cards like Scarab Egg or Mechanical Whelp.

In an emergency, this can be used to destroy a minion that would be extremely dangerous to leave alive the next turn, like Doomsayer or Kalecgos. This can also be used to remove buffs from a minion such as multiple Magnetic attachments, leaving behind something much more manageable.

Note that if you use this card on a Mountain Giant, it can summon either another Mountain Giant, an Arcane Giant, or a Grave Horror. This has a good chance of summoning a large body with Taunt when needed.
