Wait, how can you have a light in the dark? If you turn on a light while it’s dark, doesn’t that mean it’s no longer dark?

  • This spells allows the player to Discover a minion. Once a minion has been selected, that minion is granted a +1/+1 enchantment while in the player's hand. The enchantment will be retained when played, but like all enchantments will be lost if returned to the hand.


Due to its flexibility, A Light in the Darkness is a good "filler" for a Paladin deck that requires one or a few more cards as it can fit multiple different decks.

In Arena it is a highly valuable card, since you can choose the right minion for the current situation plus it gains +1/+1, for the cost of only 2 mana.

Dwarven Archaeologist works really welll, since your discovered minions are buffed, the cost will be reduced as well.


This card's art depicts a group of human paladins riding toward the forces of the Old Gods, protected by the Divine Shield of their faith in the Light.
