Remove from deck

From Hearthstone Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

A remove from deck effect causes cards to be removed directly from the player's deck, without entering their hand. Removed cards are taken from the top of the deck, and are revealed to both players. Attempting to draw a card when the hand is already full ("overdrawing") results in the card being removed from the deck.

Remove from deck effects are very similar to discard effects, but are not treated as such for game purposes. For example, they will not trigger discard-related effects such as Tiny Knight of Evil, or Fist of Jaraxxus. The key distinction is that discard effects remove cards from the hand, while remove from deck effects remove cards from the deck.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Remove from deck effects never cause fatigue.[1] This is because they do not actually draw cards, but simply remove them.[2]
