With the likely April 26 release date looming, the spoilers are still coming thick and fast. Today we have three more card reveals, which brings the total so far to forty nine.

Hammer of Twilight follows up Charged Hammer as a Shaman weapon that impacts the board significantly after it runs out of charges. The weapon seems reasonable, and will give a tempo gain when it leaves the board, but a 4/2 minion at that stage of the game is often not difficult to deal with. It feels that this card might be playable in the right deck.

Druid cards are very hard to evaluate at the moment as we know there are going to be multiple nerfs to Druid class cards. This card however seems to have two very good options, and versatility always adds some extra value. My instinct is that this will be included in whatever Druid looks like after Whispers of the Old Gods is released. It will definitely see a lot of testing.

Blood of The Ancient One is a fun build-around card for casual players. It might be that there are better ways than Faceless Manipulator to copy it at some point in the future, but the feeling remains that if you can get two 9-drop minions to stick in play, you don't really need a 30/30 anyway. If it was easy to get that kind of board, someone would already be doing it. That being said, it is fun to know that there is now a way to do 30 damage with one minion without buffs.

Mire Keeper will be a great replacement for Piloted Shreder!

The main reasons why Shredder was used were its stickiness and its incredible minion value (usually 6/5 for 4 mana). Mire Keeper has neither of those two advantages and therefore I believe that Mire Keeper isn't really a replacement of Shredder.

I think the Hammer of Twilight will be a great addition to the shaman's deck list because it's a 5 mana 12/2 which is above average on the mana list. Another reason is because it's a weapon that when destroyed will summon a 4/2 card which causes trouble and somewhat counters a Acidic Ooze or a Harrison Jones.

 

What do you think about the Hammer of Twilight?

To actually release the 4/2, which is bad minion value, you have to spend health (well, you don't have to, but that's not how weapons work) and 2 turns. That means the minion will be released on turn 7, where there are too many options to deal with that minion, just like L0r said. I don't think the weapon will be that good.

So, you equip the weapon, you swing it, then it gets destroyed by Ooze, and you either trade it or you go ace, and then it gets killed by Ooze. What you got is 8 dmg over 2 turns at the cost of 5 mana and some health as well. It doesn't really seem to counter Ooze.
