How to get[edit | edit source]

Mountain Giant can be obtained through Classic card packs, through crafting, or as an arena reward.

Card Crafting cost Disenchanting
Mountain Giant 400 100
Golden Mountain Giant 1600 400

Strategy[edit | edit source]

This card works well in card draw decks, due to its cost being reduced by the size of the player's hand.

If you need just one more Mana Crystal in order to summon the Mountain Giant, do not try using The Coin (unless you have a Gadgetzan Auctioneer on the board) since by removing the card from your hand, playing The Coin will also increase the cost of the Giant.

Lore[edit | edit source]

From Wowpedia:

Mountain giants are colossal creatures, crafted by the titans when the world was young, composed of living stone and stout flora. Benevolent and solitary by nature, the mountain giants have awakened to find that the tranquil world they once helped to shape has become a hectic battlefield of fire and sorrow. Now the mountain giants have pledged their courage and strength to the night elves' cause — and stand ready to banish the last remnants of the Burning Legion from the world. These massive melee units can take incredible amounts of punishment from attackers.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

Mountain Giant is one of 5 giants currently in Hearthstone, the others being Clockwork Giant, Frost Giant, Molten Giant and Sea Giant. All 5 are epic neutral minion cards, featuring a theme of their mana cost being reduced by a specific game factor.
