What happens when all the cards of your deck have been drawn in Hearthstone?

1 Answer 1


Any time that you're forced to draw an additional card, when there are none left to draw, your hero will experience Fatigue damage instead of getting a card.

Fatigue damage starts out at one and increases by one every time it triggers again, i.e. one damage the first time, two damage the second time, and so forth.

When cards get moved back to your stack after you have exhausted it once, you will not get damage for successfully drawing a card, but the Fatigue counter will not be reset.

    It might be a little unclear that "attempting to draw" actually fails and none of you cards, even discarded (pun intended), will never return to the deck in a given game. Commented Jan 18, 2015 at 14:55
  • I thought it was clear from the question and having "exhaustet your deck", but I'll I hope it is clearer now.

    I've removed the first half-sentence and think it's even better now. :)

    Getting cards back to your deck is not purely hypothetical: When Malorne dies he's returned to your deck, and Iron Juggernaut puts a card into the opponent's deck.

    Concise and informative! +1 for the stuff about cards moving back into the stack, which I did not know. Commented Jan 19, 2015 at 21:52
