Card of the week: Questing Adventurer

The first time I saw this card, I knew I had to have it. The thought of buffing it up to some crazy power filled my head with all kinds of delusions of grandeur. When I got my first real legendary (first one was Millhouse Manastorm) Edwin VanCleef, the Questing Adventurer fit right into that deck. I then became a big fan of the rogue.

That there is a whole lot of untapped potential.

At it’s base, the Questing Adventurer is a 2/2 minion for 3 mana. However, with every card you play it get’s +1/+1. You can see how that can lead to some amazing things. The downside is: One little silence and it’s reduced back to a 2/2. Go for the gold I say!

Questing Adventurer and a VanCleef!

The strategy: The strategy is pretty easy. Save if for a little later on when you can boost it up and also, when your opponent might have used up a couple removals/silences. With my Edwin VanCleef deck, I had lots of low cost minions and spells to boost him up, so adding the Questing Adventurer was a natural fit. Spells that buff it or protect it will work really well. It fits in nicely with rogue and paladin decks.

Okay, it was vs the Inkeeper, slightly more challenging than having a friend let you set up the longest turn though…

Cards that accent it: Pretty much every card–I know, that doesn’t help, so let me give you some ideas.

  • Youthful Brewmaster*– A 3/2 minion that places a friendly minion back in your hand. A little insurance in case it gets the silent treatment.
  • Annoy-o-Tron– As a 1/2 minion with Taunt and Divine Shield, this little sucker is the perfect running mate for a Questing Adventurer.
  • Knife Juggler– Since you might be using a lot of low cost minions, he could be great.
  • Shade of Naxxramas– It’s just plain mean, man.
  • Demolisher– If you put this out early, good chance it might get a silence thrown at it. It’s also one of my favorite minions, so there’s that.
  • Defender of Argus– If you are playing the Youthful Brewmaster, this guy can be reused.
  • Piloted Shredder– Always a good candidate for a silence. People don’t like it when you get extra minions/cards.
  • Faceless Manipulator– Especially good when you have a Questing Adventurer that is buffed up a little. 2 is better than 1!
  • Loatheb– Could prevent a bad thing from happening.
  • Any and all cards with Taunt. Especially if your opponent has no silence/removals.

Bonus Play: In a rogue deck, there are lots of cards, from Preparation to Shadowstep. Conceal is a good one, especially if you have VanCleef down. They also have Gang Up which is pure evil. The Paladin deck has a host of cards to protect your minions, such as Hand of Protection, Noble Sacrifice, Redemption, and Argent Protector.

How to acquire: It’s a rare card in the original Hearthstone expert packs. You can also craft it for 100 dusts.

That’s it for this week. Go make a Questing Adventurer deck, enjoy!

*remind me to do a write up on this card next week!
