Blizzard has just released three more card teasers for the upcoming Blackrock Mountain adventure mode, including some new Battlecry mechanics and spell interactions.

 

The original post is as follows:

 

The Molten Core is the seething, magma-filled heart of Blackrock Mountain, where long ago—in what is now widely considered to be a bad move—the Dark Iron dwarf Thaurissan summoned Ragnaros the Firelord into Azeroth. Ragnaros promptly incinerated Thaurissan’s kingdom and enslaved his people, which also had the convenient (if you’re a Firelord) side effect of creating the cozy (if you’re a fire elemental) volcano known as Blackrock Mountain. Now the searing volcanic caverns of Molten Core are patrolled by elemental minions eager to turn up the heat on any heroes foolish enough to invade the Firelord’s domain.

In Blackrock Mountain: A Hearthstone Adventure, heroes can challenge some of Molten Core’s most notorious elemental malcontents and recruit elemental minions into service for their own collections. Elementals are powerful beings closely linked to the power of the elemental plane they hail from, and when one of these beings is on your Hearthstone board, they’re sure to have a potent effect.

 

Friendly Fire

 

A Flamewaker is an ambitious sort of fire elemental. In addition to being helpful when you need to rouse a sleepy fire, Flamewakers tend to be tougher and smarter than their fellow elementals, and often possess some skill in the arcane arts. Fire is their weapon of choice, and you can count on turning their scouring flames to your service should you win a Flamewaker’s loyalty.

It turns out that elemental lords are fond of keeping pets. Unfortunately, when a magma giant thinks “cuddly,” he checks off a list that includes things like “giant,” “two-headed,” “fang-mawed,” and “made of living magma.” The only beings dwelling in the elemental plane of fire who match that description are the terrifying core hounds. While keeping one of these critters probably makes apartment hunting a chore, there’s no better four-legged friend to have when your back is up against the wall.

Imps are like roaches. If you see one, there are definitely more nearby, and they’re probably doing things like letting the air out of your tires, changing your computer’s background to something embarrassing, or ’plosioning. It’s even worse when they’re in a gang . . . or SUPER GREAT if they’re on your side.

If you think you can take the heat, rich rewards await you in the Molten Core when Blackrock Mountain: A Hearthstone Adventure arrives!

 

There are some interesting new mechanics and applications for these cards! What kind of decks will you be running them in?

      The latest Hearthstone community contribution allows you to train the skills needed to master Combo Priest: quick thinking, fast mouse movements, strategic decisions and on-the-spot calculations. What's more to ask?!
      Combo or OTK or APM Priest is a reiteration of Combo and Vivid Nightmare Priest that was born with The Boomsday Project thanks to two cards: Topsy Turvy and Test Subject. Dog is credited as the creator and true master of the deck:
      Many have subsequently tried and failed to pilot the deck, which can require almost 100 moves during the 75 seconds of a single turn. Pro players like Trump and Thijs have hilariously failed, while others like Disguised Toast and Kolento kept trying until they got the hang of it.
      Right now, you might be dreading that you don't have the IQ to play this deck. Fear no more: everything can be practiced and Patashu has made the tool for it! Combo Priest Simulator allows you to practice the OTK combo on your browser, while also timing you. You can change the parameters of the starting gamestate, too.
      In all seriousness, the deck's winrate is below average and it's honestly too much trouble for too little gain. Then again, slamming your opponent's face for 100+ damage is quite satisfactory. It would be awesome if someone was brave enough to bring this deck at a tournament: it would be the casters' nightmare!
      Apart from Combo Priest Simulator, we have a guide for Topsy Turvy OTK Priest here on Icy Veins; the guide breaks down the necessary steps of the combo in a useful priority list. Alternatively, you can listen to Aleco trying to explain how the deck works to Patrick (and actually succeeding) in the latest Icy Veins Podcast!
