Hand of Gul'dan is a common warlock spell in the Ashes of Outland expansion for Hearthstone. When the card is played or discarded, the player draws 3 cards. The flavor text reads: "His skull also draws three cards. Imagine how many cards he could draw with HIS ENTIRE BODY!", referencing the similar effect of Skull of Gul'dan, a demon hunter spell card from the same expansion.
