If there's one video game that people might call strange or even nonsensical to spectate, it's Blizzard Entertainment's collectible card game Hearthstone. It's an understandable reaction, as the majority of Hearthstone streams have you watching a single person sitting at a computer screen waiting for their opponent to take their turn.
But start playing the game yourself, get a look at how deep the strategic rabbit hole can go, and you start to see how valuable Hearthstone streams can be. Unlike more mechanics-based games like League of Legends and Overwatch, Hearthstone is a game of delicate consideration, and that's what makes it such a good game to watch. Since its strategies mostly revolve around careful observation, game knowledge, and rote memorization, the act of watching pros play the game is often just as good as taking lessons from the best in the scene.
The best Hearthstone streamers need more than skill to hold a viewer's attention. They need teaching skills, valuable metagame insights, and enough charisma to make a card game sound interesting for hours on end. To help you find your ideal Hearthstone streamer, we've rounded up 10 of our favorites.
