With the release of One Night in Kharazan not too far off, Blizzard are not taking their time with the spoiiler season. This article covers Moroes and Book Wyrm, which will bring the total number of revealed cards to eleven.

My first impression is that Moroes is likely to be a poor value card. There are however an increasing number of effects that allow you to have 1/1 copies of a card. If Moroes were to find a home, it would be in a deck where he is used multiple times, as most decks would eventually struggle to deal with the recurring stealth. That said, I don't really believe that such a deck would be viable at the moment.

Book Wyrm is harder to place. It has a very similar effect to Blackwing Corruptor, and as such seems to cost a little too much. However, it has a more durable shape, and the ability to kill Health heavy minions such as Stampeding KodoViolet Teacher, or even Flamewaker should not be undervalued. I suspect this card will require a lot of testing in the new meta before we can decide whether it is playable or not.

      The iconic final boss of Zul'Gurub is one of the neutral Legendaries of Rastakhan's Rumble and it seems slightly underwhelming.
      The reveal was made by Forbes. There's also an interview with Dave Kosak and Liv Breeden on the card, as well as a video with its gameplay.

      It's amazing how faithful this card is to the actual Corrupted Blood mechanic from World of Warcraft that led to an actual epidemic in the game - which even became a topic of study by the Centre for Disease Control. Hakkar definitely puts a timer on the match once his Deathrattle triggers and could be used to break Combo decks. However, the fact that it's a Deathrattle and not a Battlecry cuts down on its power and you still have to build a whole deck around it. Then again, a lot of people thought Mecha'thun wouldn't work when it was released and it has proven to be quite successful.

      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".

      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.
