They look nice

It doesn't take much imagination to picture how amazing Hearthstone would be on Switch. That large screen would be perfect for the game's touch-based interface, and when playing in docked mode you could use the motion-sensing Joy-Con to control a mouse-like interface. What's not to like?

While it would appear that no one at Blizzard is currently working towards this awesome dream, Hearthstone senior game designer Peter Whalen feels it's something that shouldn't be discounted. Speaking at Blizzcon, he said:

I dunno, I don’t think anyone is working on it, but I wouldn’t rule it out either. Moving to tablets and phones was awesome. It made Hearthstone way more accessible for way, way more people, which is fantastic. If there are other consoles or platforms that are good for us then that’s absolutely something we’d explore in time.

Of course, our hopes have been built up before, and Whalen's voice isn't the only one within Blizzard talking about this.
