Several more cards have been released since our last update. In this article, we cover Blood Warriors and Call of the Wild. This brings the total number of revealed cards to fifty one. We will have a further update later in the day.

Blood Warriors is a fascinating card, and a very difficult one to theorycraft without testing. On the face of it, it should synergise well with the Warrior mechanic of doing damage to everything on the board. Against that however, is the fact that it does nothing at all on its own. You also have to find time to play the minions that you get from the card, and so it is pretty slow. The closest card we have that can give us any clues as to the strenght of Blood Warriors is Echo of Medivh. Echo sees play in decks with Molten Giant, and also in some more fringe, grindy decks. Those definitely create a precident for such a card being playable in Standard and there is every chance Blood Warriors sees Standard play. Whether it turns out to be better in a Grim Patron variant, or in a control deck, time will tell.

Assuming that Animal Companion doesn't get nerfed, Call of the Wild will provide great value for eight mana. The problem on the face of it, is that by turn eight most Hunter decks look to be trying to already finishing off the game. That means that Call of the Wild will have to be either be a very top of the curve closing card, or a value card in a more controlling archetype. There is the chance that although being great value, it does not find a home in a deck.

Blizzard have confirmed that the companions will be summoned in alphabetical order.

      Mountainfire Armor and Nerubian Unraveler have been revealed by Tesdey, Reynad, and Eloise.
      If you've missed any of the previously revealed cards, feel free to check them out here.
      Mountainfire Armor

      Deathrattle: If it's your opponent's turn, gain 6 Armor.
      Vanilla test? ✓
      Strong effect? ✓

      If we're to learn anything from Shieldmaiden, it's that cards that don't even pass the vanilla test but provide a significant amount of armor will see play and feel amazing in control-oriented warrior decks. Whether control warriors will come back to life given the still-existence of Jade druids and the  like is questionable however, but if it does, this card will certainly be MVP. Value-wise, its Deathrattle, if triggered properly, is worth a bit over 2 mana. Giving this Taunt through Sunfury Protector or Defender of Argus might be one way to ensure it triggers, though its pseudo-area of effect is to be underlined. Would Pirate and Taunt warriors run this guy? Doubtful. It is pretty good for arena however, though it sports an unfortunate rare rarity, meaning you won't see it a lot.
       
      Nerubian Unraveler

      I'm not too sure what to think of this. On one hand, this looks to be some kind of anti combo deck tech card. Unfortunately, its cost seems really prohibitive, making it difficult to drop it in a pinch along something else for a strong turn, and its stats are so underwhelming despite the effect being mirrored that it may end up being a dead draw against anything that doesn't rely on spells. Might decks that don't run many spells such as Ramp druids or more experimental Handbuff paladins be seen running this? Maybe. Innervating this out, or better yet, finding one with Barnes may certainly be annoying to deal with, especially considering the effect stacks; get enough of these out on the field, and nobody has to ever worry about spells again. Though I feel this is unlikely to ever see serious play, I'm sure we'll have plenty of Evolve and Moonglade Portal related occasions to make sure this guy shows up to throw a monkey wrench in your occasional match.

      Professor Putricide has been revealed by DDaHyoNi
      If you've missed any of the previously revealed cards, feel free to check them out here.
      Professor Putricide

      Good news everyone! Cloaked Huntress just made a new best friend on turn 7 or earlier, if the former is kept alive. Whether hunters will want to play the value game, however, as a class that historically relied on aggro and midrange playstyles, is another story. We'll have to see if hunters receive more Secret support to really understand Putricide's power, but it doesn't currently fit into any competitive hunter deck (if they do exist at all). Still, the statline is appropriate. Let us note that it is the only non-Beast hunter legendary so far, which is interesting.

      Warlock's Blood-Queen Lana'thel
      The new Legendary Warlock card synergizes with Cruel Dinomancer and cards like Doomguard, Soulfire up to Malchezaar's Imp & Silverware Golem. It doesn't even have Charge and due to ist high mana cost it cannot be deployed early.
