Notes & Strategies

Surge of Light is a staple of Nature decks far and wide. The ability to instantly heal damage is invaluable, and provides an extra edge in long battles. However, because the spell has no cooldown it can be easily spammed and thus chew through power and charges rapidly.

Knowing when to use this spell is key to effective use of it.

Campaign PvE

Surge of Light is an effective buffer for early combat, where units may run into trouble especially on higher difficulties. There are many circumstances where this spell is useful but casting it too early can easily waste power, and casting it too much will do the same.

Random PvE

Surge of Light can help with the early pushes into the initial camps and aid in obtaining T2 and T3, but the spell is less effective later on, and is better replaced by Regrowth Card Icon.png Regrowth there.

Because of the Shaman Card Icon.png Shaman, this card is often not even necessary in most Random PvE games.


Surge of Light is one of the best spells in the game, but depends upon when it is used. Using it to support a winning position is key to success, and utilizing hotkeys to quickly cast it can be the difference between victory and defeat. Many players make the mistake of healing a lost cause attack and wasting power when it would have been better to just summon another creature. Casting it before or after a high desperation spell like Lava Field Card Icon.png Lava Field and Nasty Surprise Card Icon.png Nasty Surprise is an excellent way to offset the damage and remedy a potential disadvantage.

Surge of Light strongly pairs with the Dryad Card Icon.png Dryad and Shaman Card Icon.png Shaman in early rushes, especially when the opponent takes a well and the nature player does not, putting them at an advantage, and is effective in 2vs2 matchups as well.
