Before you start playing the deck, check it's performance in our simulator.

Check the performance of your Hearthstone deck before spending your time playing it

Step 1: Choose your deck
Go to Simulations -> Start new simulation, type the deck name or select one from dropdown list.
Step 2: Choose opposing deck(s)
Run Hearthstone simulations against your deck(s), community or trending deck(s).
Step 3: Enter the number of games
Running more games with one deck gives more reliable results.
Step 4: Set deck rules for your deck (optional)
Maximum number of your minions on table depends on the deck type used for the simulation.
Step 5: Set card rules for your deck (optional)
Setting card rules is not mandatory. It gives the simulator more time to spend on trying out the "good" moves instead of figuring out the "stupid" moves itself.
Step 6: Tweak your deck before you start playing it
Inspect Bottom-Up and Gameplay diagrams. What’s ineffcient? What isn’t working? What is useless?

Record and share your strategy ideas in form of small card snippets

Step 1: Create a strategy snippet
Aggro, Midrange, Control, Zoo, Combo, etc.

Step 2: Set snippet's properties
Name the snippet, choose a hero class, archetype and game phase when the snippets is intended to be played.
Step 3: Set and order cards

Order the cards in up to 3 turns.
Step 4: Describe each turn
Explain how do you intend to play the snippet turn-by-turn.
Step 5: Save and share
Save your snippet and share it with the community.
Step 6: Use the snippet in the deck builder
Use the strategy snippet as a backbone for a new deck, as a win condition combo, supporting cards, etc.
