Use these standard deck builds with some of the 135 new cards to master the Hearthstone Scholomance Academy expansion.

Hearth stone is a World of Warcraft spin-off from Blizzard Entertainment. Much like GWENT and The Witcher, Hearthstone is Warcraft’s turn-based companion card game that features many of the same characters and relics from the main game. Players can collect cards from gold won in battles to expand their decks and pose a greater threat. With casual and ranked games, arena battles, and single player quests, Hearthstone adds expansions to its history and content, the most recent of which is the Scholomance Academy.

The Scholomance Academy is the fifteenth expansion pack in Hearthstone. The Scholomance Academy is an academic themed expansion and introduces 135 new cards. The expansion includes dual tier cards and a new minion mechanic named Spellburst. These cards can be bought in the shop, made with arcane dust, and received at every arena run. Each class also has learning spells so players can discover a card and lower the mana cost of the next card of the same type that was discovered.
