Three new cards have been revealed today, bringing the total to ten so far. There is a new Hogger, a big Hunter minion, and a way to deal with multiple secrets.


Blizzard have been using the card reveals as rewards for watching tournaments. There was a card revealed in the middle of the Americas Winter Championship Day 3, as well as cards at the end of the Japan Preliminaries, and China's Gold Series.

First up is a corrupted Legendary. Hogger, The Scourge of Elwynn is a twist on the original Hogger in that he's now bigger, and creates taunts when he takes damage. He also proved this author to be incorrect, as I posted that I didn't think the Hogger card back was a clue for the next expansion. This card is full of flavour and is hopefully going to have an interesting backstory.

The Giant Sandworm uses a slightly new mechanic. It works in a similar way to a Windfury minion, but only gets to attack again if it kills a minion. At first glance the card doesn't seem too amazing, but it does have synergy with cards that make minions Immune such as Stablemaster. That seems overly clunky at this time, but we said that about Grim Patron combos too.

Eater of Secrets has been greeted with much excitement by the community. Although Avenge will not be in Standard, many people fear a strong new Paladin Secret card will be printed. If that were to happen, Secret Paladin decks would still be around for another year. This card gives an option to make sure that such a deck will not get too out of hand.

In case you missed them, the other reveals from Whispers of the Old Gods so far are:
Paladin card, Stand Against Darkness
Initial announcement: Six Cards including C'Thun

      The new meta is still forming, but even at this early stage it seems that Kazakus will be a large part of it. This article shows all of the available potions, and explains how the ordering of the spells when cast is likely to change.
      The first trick to remembering all of the options is to realise that  in the potion creation stage, nearly all of the choices are fundamentally the same no matter whether the spell costs 1, 5, or 10 mana. The cost of the spell simply powers up the effect. There are ten different effects to choose from, which are outlined below. The spells are remembered more easily when you group the effects by numbers.
      1, 2, 3 effects:
      Icecap: Freezes 1, 2, or 3 enemy minions.
      Ichor of Undeath: Summons 1, 2, or 3 friendly minions that died this game.
      Kingsblood: Draws 1, 2, or 3 cards.
      Shadow Oil: Adds 1, 2, or 3 random Demons to your hand.

      Other effects in number order:
      Felbloom: Deals 2, 4, or 6 damage to all minions. 
      Goldthorn: Gives your minions 2, 4, or 6 extra health. 
      Netherbloom: Summons a 2/2, 5/5, or 8/8 demon.
      Heart of Fire: Deals 3, 5, or 8 damage.
      Stonescale Oil: Gives 4, 7, or 10 Armor.
      Mystic Wool: This card is unique in that it has no effect for 1 mana. It either turns a random enemy minion into a 1/1 Sheep, or all enemy minions into 1/1 Sheep.

      At the moment, many of the pairings work according to the game engine, rather than in the best order, which means that Kazakus is not working as intended. An example of this would be minions that are getting killed by damage are then getting frozen before leaving play. This is correct in terms of how the game works, as deaths are always processed last, but the spells are going to be made to work outside of the regular game engine. This will make them more powerful and intuitive.

      We are already working on this. Feel free to post stuff like this on our bug forums. (source) This reply on Reddit confirms that the idea of the custom Spell is that it will resolve in an order beneficial to the caster, and that it will likely be changed very soon.
