So You Think You Can Cast: Hearthstone Edition 2017

While cards fly and the stakes rise, Hearthstone casters look on from the desk and tell the tales of those doing battle within the tavern. With a keen analytical mind, masterful speaking skills, and a healthy helping of wit, casters bring the action to life for viewers, both on-stream and in-person!

Think you have what it takes to cast a heated Hearthstone match? We’re looking for a dynamic duo to bolster our casting ranks for the Hearthstone Collegiate National Championship—part of the Tespa Competitive Series, and there’s no place better place to turn to than the Hearthstone community! From now until January 13, we invite you to download the video below and try your hand at casting the match.

We’ve gone ahead and created some fanfiction background for this sample match that you can choose to make use of while casting!

The sample match is game five of a best-of-five series between North American competitors Iksar and Puffin at the 2017 Winter Championship. The winner advances to the Grand Finals!

Puffin just recently won the Innkeeper’s Showdown tournament, and looks to continue his winning ways. Iksar, once thought to be a dominant force in the Hearthstone competitive scene, hasn’t had a high finish in over a year, and is looking to turn things around with a decisive win. The players brought the following decks:

Iksar: Dragon Priest, Pirate Shaman, Aggro Warrior.

Puffin: Jade Druid, Miracle Rogue, Reno Warlock.

Grab a partner, download the video, and record yourselves casting the game! When you’re ready to submit, upload your video to YouTube and tweet @PlayHearthstone with a link to it using the hashtag #HScast2017. In the YouTube description, please have a public email listed for both participants that Blizzard can use to contact you. Starting January 13, we’ll review your work and reach out to promising casters with further instructions.

Please Note: Members of the HCT casting team may not participate as part of the submitting caster duo.

Whether you’re an amateur, an expert, or somewhere in between, we look forward to seeing your submission!
