hearthstone Hearthstone Card Reveals: Wisps of the Old Gods and Soggoth the Slitherer

The rate of reveals has slowed down slightly over the last few days, and these two cards bring us right up to date with every card so far. Wisps of the Old Gods and Soggoth the Slitherer bring the total number of cards revealed to fifty seven.


Often in spoiler seasons, there is a mass reveal of leftover cards a week or so from release. As it seems likely that the release will be on April 26, the slowdown in card reveals might indicate that the entire set will be spoiled soon.

Soggoth the Slitherer is a real nuisance to deal with, but at 9 mana it seems likely that there will be options that have more influence on the game. If he were to find a home, it would probably be in a control deck alongside something that helped put him into play cheaply, or in a deck that gets a lot of mana really quickly. As always, I'm loathe to write off a card too early due to potential synergies that might make it better, but on raw value he doesn't seem quite good enough for Standard play.

Wisps of the Old Gods is unimpressive in the context of the current meta. We do however know that Druid is going to be changed significantly from Druid as we know it, so giving all minions +2/+2 permanently might be something worthwhile when we know exactly what the state of play is.

Soggoth is nice way to what what Blizzard is trying to show. They will slow the game cause we will have TGT with Inspire mechanic and Explorrers League to use. It will fit perfectly into Naga deck (all cards cost 5), allowing it to be played on turn 6 if player is lucky, Same synergy with Varian Wrynn and having Taunt with spell immune can turn the tide of a game. Secondly it will bring to life old legendaries like Dark Knight, since his battlecry is the only thing that can efficiently remove Soggoth.

Whisps are  really strange, and the only way I see it right now is a potential counter to Flamestrike, so thet creatures will endure it. As a potential trading tool it is possible to ube but the cost is too high.

I must admit, I had Varian in mind when I said not to write him off too soon. Will depend just how much the game has slowed down before we know I think.

One thing I've liked about the set so far is that nearly every card seems like we'll need to at least try it out.

Arcane explosion vs wisps!

Who's gonna play arcane explosion anyway? Swipe, Flamestrike/Blizzard, Consecration or even Unleash the Hounds are more probable.

I mean, it's wisp/dummy meta right now and nobody's playing Arcane Explosion. I guess it's too expensive at rank 24

I know; it would just be amusing.

      Diablo’s 20th Anniversary will take place in the beginning of 2017 and it will be celebrated in all other Blizzard games. Let’s take a look at the special Diablo-themed Tavern Brawl planned for Hearthstone.
      During the release of the latest Hearthstone patch, a new Diabloesque card back was discovered. According to an article by Hearthpwn, where we found all this information, this card back is  tied to an upcoming Tavern Brawl called “[The] Dark Wanderer”.

      The chalk board, heroes, hero powers and some cards of minions, spells and secrets of this upcoming Brawl have been datamined and you can find them in the same Hearthpwn article. The two players will take on the roles of the Dark Wanderer and the Cow King, two figures we all recognise from Diablo II. Presumably, the card back will be rewarded after your first victory in the Brawl.
      We are expecting this new Tavern Brawl during the first weeks of January 2017 – just like the other Diablo celebrations in Blizzard games (most notably in World of Warcraft).

      This week's Tavern Brawl is a repeat of Double Deathrattler Battler. It is a Brawl where you use your own cards to build a deck. Every Deathrattle will trigger twice.
      Although this is a repeat Brawl, it has been a long time since it was last used, September 2015 in fact, and many things in the game have changed since then. In that regard it can be treated as a fresh Brawl. I would like to see this idea of waiting a long time between reusing a Brawl be implemented more often, to help keep them fresh.
      On top of trying to win games, I expect lots of people to have fun experimenting with Weasel Tunneler, as many of its interactions do not work correctly, as per our previous article.

      It does seem as if cards from the Curse of Naxxramas adventure will be very good in this Brawl. Baron Rivendare doesn't stack however, meaning you don't get four times the Deathrattles if he is in play!

      YouTuber, Disguised Toast, is never far from the front of Hearthstone science, and his latest video is spectacular. This video investigates the strange interactions caused by Weasel Tunneler's Deathrattle.
      Weasel Tunneler's Deathrattle seems simple enough, it reads: Shuffle this minion into your opponent's deck. However, when tested by Disguised Toast, it turns out that even this simple looking text can result in rather odd results. The ordering of other Deathrattles on the board, and effects by other cards on Deathrattles is what makes it so unpredictable. Take a look for yourself!
      The fact your deck displays as full, no matter how many cards left, is probably the strangest interaction of all. Even Toast doesn't  attempt to describe how that one happens.

      Blizzard have updated the breakdown of the amount each gang's classes are being played.
      On their Gadgetzan page, there is an infographic showing who controls the town of Gadgetzan today. The percentages are worked out by how often each class is being used. Even with the huge amount of Pirate Warrior on ladder at the moment, the Grimy Goons are unable to control the city! That honour goes, currently, to the Kabal. With people having success with Reno Warlock AND Reno Priest, it will be fun to see if they hold that position in the coming days.
