This Hearthstone play has knives flying for nearly 15 minutes

Oh Hearthstone, how you never fail to make me rage! I’ve recently dived back into Blizzard’s card game to find that… yeah I still get very annoyed when things don’t go my way. That’s my fault however (my lack of skill), and not the game’s. One thing I do honestly appreciate however, are the variety of cards available, and the number of crazy combinations that can be created using them. Some of them are insane!

This video demonstrates one such combination beautifully, in a turn that takes almost 15 minutes to end. (via Destructoid):

Granted, it’s extremely unlikely (read: IMPOSSIBLE) that this play would ever happen in a legit matchup, but it’s mesmerising nonetheless. All I can hear now are the sounds of horses and galloping hooves… if that’s not therapeutic, then I don’t know what is!

Anyways, if you’d like to set up the board with a friend to replicate the video above, these are three important cards you’ll need…

Knife Juggler: After you summon a minion, deal 1 damage to a random enemy.
Dreadstead: Deathrattle – summon a Dreadstead.
Baron Rivendare: Your minions trigger their Deathrattles twice (used to fill the board up with more Dreadsteads)

There are other cards you can use to buff up the Knife Jugglers health, but I don’t think it’s absolutely necessary. Doing  so will just make the whole turn last even longer.

In fact, the whole video could arguably be longer (or shorter) depending on the RNG nature of everything that is happening. If the Knife Jugglers happen to target Dreadsteads, and absolutely nothing else, the turn would last INFINITY. You can’t argue with maths – trust me, I asked Geoff to confirm my findings!
