Deck Importing

"No more screen shooting decklists, or staring at a web page as you carefully build a deck, card by card. Trying—and sharing—a new decklist will be as simple as copy and paste!"

Deck Importing or Deck Sharing is a feature in Hearthstone, which allows decks to be easily shared with everyone using deck strings.[1]

How it works[edit | edit source]

If your deck is already full, when you select the Hero portrait at the top of a deck list in the collection manager, you’ll see a Copy button. Press that button and your deck list will be copied to your clipboard. If you paste your deck list into a text document, it will look like this:[1]


The highlighted code near the bottom contains all the deck information, making it easier to share a deck list with friends in chat or social media. When you go to create a new deck, Hearthstone will “know” when you’ve got a valid deck list on your clipboard, so you’ll be asked if you’d like to create a new deck with the one you’ve got copied, and it will build the deck based on the code. This can also be used for Tavern Brawl decks.[1]

If you don’t have all the cards a deck requires, it works just like a deck recipe. Any cards you don’t already own will appear insubstantial and you can select them for suggested replacements.[1]

The encoding used is in Base 64.[2]

Deck Replacement[edit | edit source]

Rather than 'pasting' via the 'new deck' button, you can replace an open deck with one in your clipboard by ALT-TABing out of and back into the Hearthstone client with the deck page open.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Because of the high demand for deck sharing in the community, third-party applications arose from companies which offer Deck importing and Deck tracking.
    • These applications work by hooking into the Unity engine's working space, and most of them are doing it when the user enters the Play menu.
