Reach legend. Conquer the arena.

VanHearth has partnered up with local professional Hearthstone players to offer you coaching sessions. Many coaches will tell you what to do. Our coaches will tell you why you’re doing it. Coaching sessions are completely interactive and coaches are there to help you get better. Skype is required.

Our coaches will help you develop a plan specifically tailored to the areas you want to improve on. Sessions can range from any of the following topics:

  • Improving your game

    Learn how to play decks like Patron Warrior and Midrange Hunter. Understand your key matchups and how to play against specific opposing decks. Review key concepts like tempo, mana usage, and optimal plays.

  • Tournament Play

    Develop deck lineups for local or online tournaments. Control your anxiety and steel yourself against the competitive atmosphere.

  • Reach legend

    Get the ultimate card back and reach legend for the first time.

As someone who has taught college science courses for years, allow me to say that Jordan (Thejordude) is an incredible teacher. Like any great teacher he was able to assess my current skill level and improve on that without making any wild promises. He approached the entire process with a positive, friendly, and helpful attitude without staring at the clock. Furthermore, is quite common for higher skill level players to treat others inferiorly or condescending, yet Jordan treated me like a longtime friend and with respect. If you’re struggling with certain aspects of the game or simply want to elevate your game to the next level, don’t look any further.
After a year-long break from Hearthstone, I felt that I needed some help getting back into the right mindset to play at a competitive level, so I contacted Jordan with a request for a two-hour coaching session.
During the session, we primarily worked on improving my midrange hunter play. I noticed that whenever I made a mistake, Jordan would politely notify me in a way that was not at all distracting or condescending. He was always receptive to any questions I had, which made it incredibly easy to discuss the pros and cons of different lines of play. It also helped that Jordan backed every statement with thorough reasoning, so I could precisely understand his thought process.
What impressed me the most about Jordan’s guidance was his attention to detail. I remember a specific instance where I wanted to play around a turn 8 force-roar combo (after the druid had played Emperor Thaurissan on turn 6) by trading so I would not be dead to the combo. Jordan told me that the druid had played all of his discounted cards, which made a turn 8 combo impossible. I don’t think I will ever forget to watch my opponent’s hand after that play.
I hear so many rank 1-5’s talk about how they think they are playing flawlessly but can’t seem to climb, and how they can’t identify their own mistakes. In a way, they feel that they’ve hit a barrier that’s preventing them from playing at a higher level. For anyone who feels this way, I definitely recommend Jordan as a coach, because before my own coaching session, I definitely had this mentality. Even for someone who took midrange hunter to mid-200s legend, I was surprised by all the things I could improve.
I haven’t had a ton of coaching sessions with TheJordude, but I always had a really fun and informative time with him. He’s super laid back and seems genuinely interested in helping you brush up on your Hearthstone skills. He has helped me with the fundamentals of making good trades, making smart mulligans, laddering mentality and, most importantly, how to anticipate your opponent’s next several moves. The things I’ve learned for TheJordude have made clear improvements in my overall win rate. This has made my Heartstone experience much more enjoyable. I mean, everyone would like to win more games, right?
I can honestly say, without any reservations, that TheJordude is the best wizard poker coach I’ve ever had.
