Galakrond’s Awakening is Hearthstone’s newest solo adventure. It was released on January 21, 2020 and it features 35 new collectible cards, which unlike in other solo adventures can’t be crafted for dust yet. The only way to acquire those cards is by completing the solo adventure. This is the best solo adventure to get because it is part of the standard format and many of its cards are commonly used in the standard metagame. The adventure is split into 2 different campaigns following the League of E.V.I.L. and the League of Explorers. Each of those campaigns has 4 wings, with 3 boss battles each. There is a Heroic Mode included as well and completing each of the 2 campaigns in it will win you a special card back. Galakrond’s Awakening follows the story of the villain Rafaam, who is trying to summon the evil dragon Galakrond and destroy everything. He recruits a team of villains called the League of E.V.I.L. and together they steal the magical city of Dalaran and unleash many plagues. However, the League of Explorers manages to stop them from taking over the whole Azeroth. Nearly all of the cards from this solo adventure are used in the standard metagame, which makes this set very valuable.

Pick Galakrond’s Awakening if:

  • You want to acquire many powerful cards, used in the standard format
  • You want to follow one of the greatest stories ever told in Hearthstone
  • You want to play any of the current meta decks, as each one of them features uncraftable cards from this solo adventure
