The Rogue Legendary Loa has just been unveiled!
The reveal was made by MKRR3 on YouTube. The video is in Polish.
Gral, the Shark has a Tutor effect but it quite weak to Silence. Still, Rogue has quite a few ways to trigger the Deathrattle and now with Spirit of the Shark, it can trigger the Battlecry twice as well. At first sight, though, it feels like a weak card: Silence destroys it, high mana cost and Rogue traditionally runs quite a few small minions as well. It also doesn't seem to fit with the Pirate theme Rogue will have in Rastakhan's Rumble, altough perhaps we can see Beast Rogue with Oondasta and the recently revealed "Beast King".
What do you people think about this card?
Two new cards were revealed by Asian streamers: an Epic neutral minion and the Paladin Spirit.
The first card was unveiled by Chinese streamer LaLaLa on Douyu. The name of the card isn't final.
The first thought that comes when looking at this card is that it's great support for Quest Hunter. The problem is support cards for this archetype were printed in previous expansions and the result was always the same. Beast King could definitely fit into a Beast deck along with Oondasta - and since they are both Neutral cards, this doesn't necessarily have to be Hunter. Hi'reek, the Warlock Loa, and his copies could benefit from the +2/+2 buff. Beast King could also find its place in a Beast Druid deck with minions like Charged Devilsaur and Tyrantus. These Warlock and Druid combos, though, sound a bit like win-more situations.
The Paladin Spirit was revealed by Korean streamer (and dancer) Rhdgurwn.
The text box may not be the final version as "stats equal to its Cost" is a bit vague, since it could mean a 4/4 or a 3/1 or a 1/3 or a 2/2. However, it would make sense that if you cast a 4-mana spell, the Spirit would summon a 4/4 Tiger and that's how we are going to treat it. At 4 mana, this different version of Summoning Stone seems a bit slow and definitely promotes a more Spell Control-oriented playstyle, which is what Paladin seems to be heading to in Rastakhan's Rumble. It definitely makes for a strong combo with Spikeridged Steed.

The reveal season for Rastakhan's Rumble has kicked off with the customary live stream. This time, the hosts are Senior Game Designer Peter Whalen and Regiskillbin.
The stream has conculded. All the cards revealed will also be added into our Rastakhan's Rumble hub. The full schedule for the following card reveals can be found here.
Nine cards were revealed:
The counter doesn't start over if you bounce Jan'alai!
The Hero Power hitting adjacent minions counts for Jan'alai's counter! Works with Frost Lich Jaina's Hero Power. However, Ice Walker only freezes the targeted minion and not the adjacent ones with the Spirit present.
It wouldn't be a proper reveal season without some leaks! This time it was the official Twitter account of Hearthstone Brazil that accidentally revealed four new Warlock cards.
These four cards were supposed to be revealed during the kickoff live stream, as the audience had to choose between seeing gameplay of a Mage or a Warlock deck. Since the audience picked Mage, the Warlock cards were supposed to remain a mystery for now but Hearthstone Brazil jumped the gun and revealed them off-schedule on Twitter.
Here is the English version of the cards. All images are courtesy of Hearthpwn and the names of the cards may not be final.
Surprise, surprise: Team 5 is trying to make Discardlock a thing again! Unfortunately, no matter how many times they have tried to make the archetype viable, it never really caught on. Who knows, though? This might be their lucky time!
This package looks alright on paper. A major concern in Discard decks has been that there's no way to get back valuable cards that you have discarded; Soulwarden does that in a better way than Cruel Dinomancer. Targeted discard is also a major improvement: Shriek can probably see play, especially after Defile rotates out. Reckless Diretroll looks like a toned down version of Lakkari Felhound. The legendary High Priestess Jeklik can potentially be quite powerful, but at 4 mana she's not quite cheap to be reliably discarded by the two aforementioned cards that target the lowest cost cards.
The new cards are here, the support for them already exists (see Lakkari Sacrifice and The Soularium). Is it finally the time for Discardlock to shine in Rastakhan's Rumble?
