With the arrival of Whispers of the Old Gods and game formats, the wiki has switched over to Standard format.
The preferred format for new and advanced players alike, most card lists will from now on only show cards valid in Standard format, making it easier for readers to find the information they're looking for.
For those interested in Wild format, Wild listings can now be found on subpages, such as Deathrattle/Wild format, linked just above main card listings, and Wild strategy and tips are still featured in our articles.
Spell cards are cards that can be played to trigger a one time effect or ability, described in the card's text. Spell cards do not have an Attack or Health value and can only be used during your turn. Spell cards are the second most common type of card.
Notes[edit | edit source]
- In Hearthstone the term spell is not limited to describing magical effects, but is roughly equivalent to the term ability from games like World of Warcraft, including magical abilities, traditional spell-casting, and physical abilities such as Cleave, Eviscerate and Slam. Spell cards generally represent all actions taken directly by a hero other than combat and Hero Powers.

The following cards have specific synergy with spells, such as providing additional effects when spells are cast.
|Name / Desc||Rarity||Type||Subtype||Class||Cost||Atk||HP||Description|
|Dragonkin Sorcerer||Common||Minion||Dragon||Any||4||3||5||Whenever you target this minion with a spell, gain +1/+1. Dragonkin Sorcerers be all "I'm a wizard" and everyone else be all "daaaaang".|
|Mana Wyrm||Common||Minion||General||Mage||1||1||3||Whenever you cast a spell, gain +1 Attack. These wyrms feed on arcane energies, and while they are generally considered a nuisance rather than a real threat, you really shouldn't leave them alone with a bucket of mana.|
|Sorcerer's Apprentice||Common||Minion||General||Mage||2||3||2||Your spells cost (1) less. Apprentices are great for bossing around. "Conjure me some mana buns! And a coffee! Make that a mana coffee!"|
|Spellslinger||Common||Minion||General||Mage||3||3||4||Battlecry: Add a random spell to each player's hand. Does he sling spells, or do his spells linger about. Who can say?|
|Counterspell||Rare||Spell||Mage||3||Secret: When your opponent casts a spell, Counter it. What's the difference between a mage playing with Counterspell and a mage who isn't? The mage who isn't is getting Pyroblasted in the face.|
|Cult Sorcerer||Rare||Minion||General||Mage||2||3||2||Spell Damage +1|
After you cast a spell, give your C'Thun +1/+1 (wherever it is). No matter how many times we tell her not to, she keeps feeding C'Thun scraps under the table.
|Demented Frostcaller||Rare||Minion||General||Mage||4||2||4||After you cast a spell, Freeze a random enemy character. He prefers that you refer to him by his nickname: 'Frostwaker.'|
|Flamewaker||Rare||Minion||General||Mage||3||2||4||After you cast a spell, deal 2 damage randomly split among all enemies. Flamewakers HATE being confused for Flamewalkers. They just wake up fire, they don’t walk on it. Walking on fire is CRAZY.|
|Gadgetzan Auctioneer||Rare||Minion||General||Any||6||4||4||Whenever you cast a spell, draw a card. He used to run the black market auction house, but there was just too much violence and he had to move.|
|Mana Addict||Rare||Minion||General||Any||2||1||3||Whenever you cast a spell, gain +2 Attack this turn. She’s trying to kick the habit, but still takes some mana whenever she has a stressful day.|
|Summoning Stone||Rare||Minion||General||Any||5||0||6||Whenever you cast a spell, summon a random minion of the same Cost. Sometimes it feels like it's always the same slackers that are waiting for a summon.|
|Violet Teacher||Rare||Minion||General||Any||4||3||5||Whenever you cast a spell, summon a 1/1 Violet Apprentice. If you don't pay attention, you may be turned into a pig. And then you get your name on the board.|
|Wild Pyromancer||Rare||Minion||General||Any||2||3||2||After you cast a spell, deal 1 damage to ALL minions. BOOM BABY BOOM! BAD IS GOOD! DOWN WITH GOVERNMENT!|
|Djinni of Zephyrs||Epic||Minion||General||Any||5||4||6||After you cast a spell on another friendly minion, cast a copy of it on this one. If you want your wish granted, don't rub him the wrong way.|
|Lock and Load||Epic||Spell||Hunter||2||Each time you cast a spell this turn, add a random Hunter card to your hand. Rexxar narrowed his eyes, grabbed his machine gun, and said: "It's go time. Lock and load."|
This card pays homage to that special moment.
|Preparation||Epic||Spell||Rogue||0||The next spell you cast this turn costs (3) less. "Be Prepared" - Rogue Motto|
|Spellbender||Epic||Spell||Mage||3||Secret: When an enemy casts a spell on a minion, summon a 1/3 as the new target. While it's fun to intercept enemy lightning bolts, a spellbender much prefers to intercept opposing Marks of the Wild. It just feels meaner. And blood elves... well, they're a little mean.|
|Archmage Antonidas||Legendary||Minion||General||Mage||7||5||7||Whenever you cast a spell, put a 'Fireball' spell into your hand. Antonidas was the Grand Magus of the Kirin Tor, and Jaina's mentor. This was a big step up from being Grand Magus of Jelly Donuts.|
|Eydis Darkbane||Legendary||Minion||General||Any||3||3||4||Whenever you target this minion with a spell, deal 3 damage to a random enemy. HATES being called "the wonder twins".|

|Lorewalker Cho||Legendary||Minion||General||Any||2||0||4||Whenever a player casts a spell, put a copy into the other player's hand. Lorewalker Cho archives and shares tales from the land of Pandaria, but his favorite story is the one where Joey and Phoebe go on a road trip.|
|Millhouse Manastorm||Legendary||Minion||General||Any||2||4||4||Battlecry: Enemy spells cost (0) next turn. "I'm gonna light you up, sweetcheeks!"|
|Nexus-Champion Saraad||Legendary||Minion||General||Any||5||4||5||Inspire: Add a random spell to your hand. The ethereals have their own jousting tournament, and Saraad is the reigning champion. Also he won the ethereal hot dog eating contest.|
