Hearthlings, don't forget to follow us on: Twitter | Facebook | YouTube

 Card Relations

Now that you've got keywords down, let's take a look at the real cards that bring other cards into play. If you've been browsing our card database, you've probably come across some cool cards which you were sad you were unable to place into your deck. The way that Hearthstone has been designed, everything is a card. When you put one of your Druid minions into play which has the Choose One keyword, you will be asked to pick between two "fake" cards to activate the effect. These "fakes" are called Token Cards. The table below shows us which cards are related to token cards.
