Hey guys, we are glad to introduce you to a Hearthstone Basic Game Mechanics quiz! The game is a treat from Blizzard Entertainment for all the original Warcraft fans. This quiz will test your knowledge about the simple mechanics of the game, thus challenging your true fandom towards the title. So, let's see if you are a Hero of Warcraft or just a noob.

• 1.

Player casts “Assassinate” on “Acolyte of pain”. Acolyte’s owner will:

• A.

Draw no cards

• B.

Draw 1 card

• C.

Draw 2 cards

• D.

Draw 3 cards

A. Draw no cards
Explanation
When the player casts "Assassinate" on "Acolyte of Pain," the Acolyte's owner will draw no cards. This is because "Assassinate" destroys the Acolyte of Pain, and its card draw effect triggers when it takes damage. Since it is being destroyed, it does not take damage and therefore does not allow the owner to draw any cards.

Rate this question:

• 2.

Priest gains control of Paladin’s minion with “Blessing of wisdom” on it. Who will draw card if this minion attacks?

• A.

Priest

• B.

• C.

No one

• D.

Both

Explanation
If the Priest gains control of the Paladin's minion with "Blessing of Wisdom" on it, the Paladin will draw the card when the minion attacks. This is because "Blessing of Wisdom" states that whenever the minion attacks, the player who cast the spell (in this case, the Paladin) will draw a card. Therefore, even though the Priest has control of the minion, the effect of "Blessing of Wisdom" still applies to the Paladin.

Rate this question:

• 3.

Hunter’s “Snipe” triggers, when opponent casts “Animal companion.”

• A.

True

• B.

False

B. False
Explanation
The correct answer is False. The statement suggests that Hunter's "Snipe" triggers when the opponent casts "Animal Companion," but this is not true. "Snipe" is a Hunter secret that triggers when the opponent plays a minion, not a spell like "Animal Companion." Therefore, the statement is incorrect.

Rate this question:

• 4.

Both players have empty decks and 1 hp. Player A casts "Hammer of Wrath" on opponent's hero.

• A.

Only Player A will die

• B.

Only Player A will die

• C.

Both will die

C. Both will die
Explanation
When Player A casts "Hammer of Wrath" on the opponent's hero, it deals 3 damage. Since both players have 1 hp remaining, this means that both players will die simultaneously. The damage from the spell will kill the opponent's hero, but Player A will also die because the spell causes them to draw a card. Since both players have empty decks, drawing a card when there are no cards left results in Player A's death as well. Therefore, both players will die.

Rate this question:

• 5.

“Earth shock” can kill “Twilight drake” or “Scarlet Crusader.”

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
The explanation for the given correct answer is that "Earth shock" is a spell or ability that has the power to kill both "Twilight drake" and "Scarlet Crusader." This means that if "Earth shock" is used against either of these two characters, they will be killed. Therefore, the statement "Earth shock can kill Twilight drake or Scarlet Crusader" is true.

Rate this question:

• 6.

Warrior casts “Execute” on Mage’s injured minion. Mage has “Spellbender” secret readied. Execute will:

• A.

Kill injured minion

• B.

Be redirected to spellbender and kill him

• C.

Be redirected to spellbender and won’t kill him

B. Be redirected to spellbender and kill him
Explanation
When the Warrior casts "Execute" on the Mage's injured minion, the Mage's secret "Spellbender" will activate. "Spellbender" redirects the spell to a random target, which in this case is the Mage's own "Spellbender" minion. Since "Execute" is a spell that destroys a minion with 2 or less attack, it will successfully kill the Mage's "Spellbender" minion. Therefore, the correct answer is that "Execute" will be redirected to "Spellbender" and kill him.

Rate this question:

• 7.

Warrior has “Armorsmith” and four other minions on board and 1 health. Rogue has 1/2 dagger in hand and plays Blade Flurry.

• A.

Warrior will gain 5 armor, take 1 damage and stay alive

• B.

Warrior will take 1 damage and die

• C.

Warrior will take 1 damage, gain 5 armor and die

• D.

Warrior will take take 1 damage, gain 5 armor and stay alive

A. Warrior will gain 5 armor, take 1 damage and stay alive
Explanation
The Warrior has "Armorsmith" and four other minions on board, with 1 health remaining. The Rogue has a 1/2 dagger in hand and plays Blade Flurry. Blade Flurry deals damage to all minions and the enemy hero equal to the attack of the equipped weapon. In this case, the Rogue's dagger has an attack of 1. Therefore, when Blade Flurry is played, it will deal 1 damage to the Warrior, reducing their health to 0. However, the Armorsmith's effect triggers whenever a friendly minion takes damage, granting the Warrior 1 armor for each damaged minion. Since there are four other minions on the board, the Warrior will gain 4 armor, bringing their total armor to 5. Despite taking 1 damage, the Warrior will stay alive due to the gained armor.

Rate this question:

• 8.

Shaman attacks with “Stormforged Axe”and equips “Doomhammer”. This turn he:

• A.

Can attack one more time

• B.

Can attack two more times

• C.

Can not attack anymore

A. Can attack one more time
Explanation
When the Shaman equips the "Doomhammer", it grants him the ability to attack one additional time during his turn. Since he has already attacked once with the "Stormforged Axe", he can attack one more time with the "Doomhammer". Therefore, the correct answer is "Can attack one more time".

Rate this question:

• 9.

“Assassinate” can destroy minion with Divine Shield.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
The ability "Assassinate" is a powerful removal spell in the game Hearthstone. It can destroy any minion, regardless of its health or attack, including those with Divine Shield. Divine Shield is a protective effect that absorbs the first instance of damage, but Assassinate bypasses this effect and destroys the minion directly. Therefore, "Assassinate" can indeed destroy a minion with Divine Shield.

Rate this question:

• 10.

“Deadly shot” can destroy Fairy dragon.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
The explanation for the given correct answer is that the term "Deadly shot" suggests a powerful attack or ability that has the potential to cause significant damage. Fairy dragons, being mythical creatures, are often depicted as having a vulnerability to certain types of attacks or magic. Therefore, it is plausible that a deadly shot could destroy a Fairy dragon.

Rate this question:

• 11.

You can increase  “Eye for an eye” damage with Spellpower.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
Increasing "Eye for an eye" damage with Spellpower means that the amount of damage dealt by the ability "Eye for an eye" can be enhanced by having a higher Spellpower stat. This suggests that the ability's damage is affected by the caster's magical prowess, making it more powerful with increased Spellpower. Therefore, the statement "You can increase 'Eye for an eye' damage with Spellpower" is true.

Rate this question:

• 12.

Priest takes control of an enemy minion, then Rogue casts “Sap” on it. Minion will return to:

• A.

Priest’s hand

• B.

Rogue’s hand

A. Priest’s hand
Explanation
When the Priest takes control of an enemy minion, it becomes temporarily under their control. However, when the Rogue casts "Sap" on it, the minion returns to its owner's hand, which in this case is the Priest. Therefore, the minion will return to the Priest's hand.

Rate this question:

• 13.

Opponent has single minion with Taunt and Stealth on it. You will be able to attack opponent’s hero.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
If the opponent's minion has both Taunt and Stealth, it means that the opponent's minion can only be attacked by the player if it has Taunt, and it cannot be targeted by spells or hero powers if it has Stealth. However, the question states that you will be able to attack the opponent's hero. This means that the opponent's minion does not have Stealth, allowing you to bypass it and attack the opponent's hero directly. Therefore, the statement "True" is correct.

Rate this question:

• 14.

“Angry chicken” with “Commanding shout” on it takes damage.

• A.

It will become enraged

• B.

It will not become enraged

B. It will not become enraged
Explanation
When the "Angry chicken" has "Commanding shout" on it, it prevents the chicken from becoming enraged when it takes damage. Therefore, the correct answer is that it will not become enraged.

Rate this question:

• 15.

Priest has “Kobold Geomancer”, “Malygos” and “Prophet Velen” on board. Priest plays “Mind blast”. Mind blast deals:

• A.

10 damage

• B.

22 damage

• C.

16 damage

• D.

5 damage

B. 22 damage
Explanation
When the Priest plays "Mind Blast", the spell deals damage equal to the base damage of 5 plus the spell damage bonus from the minions on board. In this case, the Priest has "Kobold Geomancer" (+1 spell damage), "Malygos" (+5 spell damage), and "Prophet Velen" (double the spell damage). Therefore, the spell damage bonus is 1 + 5 + (5 x 2) = 16. Adding this to the base damage of 5, the total damage dealt by "Mind Blast" is 5 + 16 = 21.

Rate this question:

• 16.

Mage has “Counterspell” secret readied. Hunter plays “Flare.”

• A.

Flare will destroy secret, Hunter will draw a card

• B.

Secret will cancel Flare, Hunter won’t draw a card

B. Secret will cancel Flare, Hunter won’t draw a card
Explanation
When the Hunter plays "Flare," the Mage's "Counterspell" secret will be triggered. "Counterspell" cancels the next spell that the opponent plays, in this case, "Flare." Therefore, the "Flare" will be canceled, and the Hunter will not draw a card.

Rate this question:

• 17.

Player has “Stormwind Champion” 6/1 and “Wisp” 2/2 on board. Opponent Mage plays “Arcane explosion.”

• A.

All minions die

• B.

Champion dies, Wisp stays 1/1

• C.

Wisp dies, Champion stays 6/1

• D.

Both minions stay alive with 1 hp

B. Champion dies, Wisp stays 1/1
Explanation
When the opponent Mage plays "Arcane Explosion," it deals 1 damage to all minions. Since the "Stormwind Champion" has only 1 health, it dies. However, the "Wisp" has 2 health, so it survives with 1 health remaining. Therefore, the correct answer is that the Champion dies, and the Wisp stays as a 1/1 minion.

Rate this question:

• 18.

Player attacks with Jaraxxus hero, then plays “Lord Jaraxxus.” He will be able to attack this turn again.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
When a player attacks with the Jaraxxus hero and then plays "Lord Jaraxxus," they will be able to attack again during the same turn. This is because "Lord Jaraxxus" replaces the player's hero with a new hero, also named Jaraxxus, who has a different set of abilities. Since the player has not used their attack with the new Jaraxxus hero, they can still attack with it during the same turn. Therefore, the statement is true.

Rate this question:

• 19.

“Crazed Alchemist’s” battlecry can destroy minion with 0 attack.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
The battlecry of "Crazed Alchemist" allows you to swap the attack and health values of a minion. If the minion has 0 attack, swapping its attack value with its health value will result in the minion having 0 health, effectively destroying it. Therefore, "Crazed Alchemist's" battlecry can indeed destroy a minion with 0 attack.

Rate this question:

• 20.

Paladin has “Sword of Justice” equipped and “Noble sacrifice” readied. When secret triggers, Defender will be:

• A.

2/1

• B.

3/2

• C.

1/2

• D.

4/3

B. 3/2
Explanation
When the secret triggers, the "Noble Sacrifice" secret will summon a 2/1 Defender with Taunt. The "Sword of Justice" equipped by the Paladin will buff the Defender, giving it +1/+1. Therefore, the Defender will become a 3/2 minion.

Rate this question:

• 21.

Shaman plays “Far Sight” and gets a card with reduced manacost. Priest steals this card with “Mind vision.” Stolen card will have:

• A.

Basic manacost

• B.

Reduced manacost

A. Basic manacost
Explanation
When Shaman plays "Far Sight," it reduces the cost of the card drawn from the deck. However, when the Priest steals the card using "Mind Vision," the card will not retain the reduced mana cost. The stolen card will have its basic mana cost, without any reduction applied.

Rate this question:

• 22.

• A.

• B.

Injured blademaster will stay with 1 hp

• C.

Injured blademaster will stay with 3 hp

B. Injured blademaster will stay with 1 hp
Explanation
When the Priest plays the "Injured Blademaster," its effect triggers and deals 4 damage to itself, leaving it with 1 health. However, the Paladin's secret "Repentance" reduces the health of the first minion played by the Priest to 1. Therefore, the "Injured Blademaster" will stay with 1 health.
