Deal 2 damage to the enemy hero. Combo: Return this card to your hand next turn.
Card Information
When all else fails nothing beats a swift whack upside the head.

Headcrack is a Rogue Spell card that deals 2 damage to the enemy Hero and if it's not the first card played during that round it will be returned to the player's hand the next turn.


This card should only be used in decks that aim for direct damage. These rogue decks often combo with cards like Shiv and Spell Power creatures. One such deck was the infamous Miracle Rogue deck which relied on large amount of combos and cheap cards to power up Questing Adverturer, Edwin Vancleef, and Mana Addict. However, since the first beta patch, huge nerfs have been made to this deck, one of them being the cost of Headcrack increased to three. This causes these types of combo direct damage decks to be much less effective.
