hearthstone Un'Goro Card Reveals 19-20 March

13 posts in this topic

Four more cards have been revealed since our previous update. This brings the total revealed so far to twenty.

With under a month to reveal 135 cards, spoiler season is well underway, so let's take a look at the most recently spoiled cards.

The first thing that springs to mind when seeing this card is that it is designed to be played with Awaken the Makers, the new Priest Quest card that requires you to summon seven Deathrattle minions. Cards from your opponent's deck will not have good synergy with your deck, but they will tend to be good cards (other than situational cards like weapon buffs, or Quests that have been mulliganed away). Babbling Book was not expected to be a very playable card, but found a home in many decks by being just good enough. I think Crystalline Oracle is also destined to be played, but I am not sure how much.

Sunkeeper Tarim seems to have many potential uses, and as such will likely find a home somewhere. As its ability can turn your army of 1/1s into a huge army at a moment's notice, just the threat of it being in your deck will put pressure on the opponent to keep that army under control. At first, Tarim also seems to be an okay solution to opposing Jade cards, as it would take three enemy 3/3s to get through the 3/7 taunt. The main problem with that, is that if your deck is far enough behind that it needs to turn Jades into 3/3, the Jade player will probably make even bigger minions on the following turn. The best use seems to be the combination of the two,which is to force through final damage in an aggressive deck.

This is a very interesting card. If the meta is fast, then Shadow Visions will be unplayable, but if it is slow, then the card can be used as a way to generate slots in your deck. Having only one of some cards will help to reduce the clutter that sometimes occurs in control decks, and so this card will have to be tested quite heavily. There is also the more amusing combo with the new Elise card, which would enable you to find your pack faster.

As with Crystalline Oracle, Clutchmother Zavas seems like it was created to fit in with the Warlock Quest. One of the big problems with Lakkari Sacrifice is that even in a control shell, discarding six cards over the course of a game is a very expensive ask. Your hand empties, and then you have to not only refill it, but be prepared to discard some of it. Zavas appears to solve those problems, and has a big upside as well. I would expect this card to not only fit into a Control Warlock Quest deck with ease, but to enable the archetype to exist.

Shadow Vision will be a combo card. Priests tend to have weak combos, but I am afraid it will be used in an OTK deck, like Divine Spirit + Inner Fire one, or maybe a new type of OTK deck will emerge, and there is nothing I hate more in hearthstone than OTK decks.

Hmmm... Stand Against Darkness may become a playable card. Opponent is forced to AOE recruits away or risk facing bunch of 3\3s next turn. 

The 1\1s is not looking a good card for priests who lack ping effect like mages and rogues. While it looks nice with the quest... problem is that you don't really need 1 drops when your first turn is activating a quest. 

What I find interesting that Crystalline oracle  is an elemental. Shifting Shade and Lightspawn are almost certainly elementals, too. Mana Geode may be one to. I am really curious to see what elementals synergy we will see.

1) I think crystalline will be under rated. Stealing certain cards can be game changing. We've seen this with Rouge a lot more, and that's usually taking them from the full pool, not just the "viable" cards. At 1 mana, it's always value.

2) Sunkeeper could be REALLY strong. The analysis of anti-jade isn't totally true. He does nullify it really well except for Druid, which can snowball unending. Shaman and Rouge are limited in their summons. Also can be scary in aggro. Quite quick for the value of 3/7 too.

3) Shadow visions will be interesting... It can be nice in highlander (reno is gone...) decks that really want a second of a couple spells but can't because of not drawing them. Other than that though, it's 2 mana for 1 card, which is some bad value.

4) Clutchmother is SUPER interesting. Clearly a control mechanic while still having discard in the deck. Have to see if there are other cards to complete the synergy of this and the quest.

Maelstrom Portal, Wild Pyromancer, Ravaging Ghoul, Fan of Knives, Swipe, so many obvious counters to Stand Against Darkness exist that are playable cards by themselves exist and thus i consider it to not suddenly become viable. The legendary will surely find a place in a standard aggro or aggressive midrange deck as you dont need that polarizable board position (THAT many small plebs on your board and THAT many big plebs on opponets board) to make it swing really hard. It will come down to the quality of paladin cards that will be introduced in the game, as the remaining good ones are leaving with year of the Mammoth (Keeper of Uldaman and Anyfin most noticeable ones)

The combo deck you are meaning is already very slow and Shadow Vision would make it even slower, and considering how dominating aggro and midrange decks have been so far i have literally zero concerns about the things it will enable, especially with Emperor Thaurissan leaving. Id consider the card as an opportunity rather than as a potential concern. Deathrattle priest, the most obviously forced archtype of priest to this new set will have enough value to barely even need to run it and if meta will be fast i doubt we will ever see that card as the meta will settle.

Well, the issue with Inner Fire OTK decks is that there are no charge minions that can do the OTK without having to have way too many combo cards in your hand, with the exception of Djinni of Zephyrs OTK. After Shadow Visions are released, there will be many more ways to OTK with Inner Fire combo, which I believe is not healthy for the game.

It doesn't matter if you have more Divine Spirits when you don't have the mana to cast them in 1 turn. Closest thing is Stormwind Knight  +3x Divine Spirit + Inner Fire at 11 mana so you'd need to go 2nd and keep the coin... pretty sure that's a bad win condition.

Shadow visions is fantastic if you can mulligan your hand well and read your opponent properly. If you can identify a control deck early, copy mid control. If it's still an aggro meta, copy greater healing potion. A very versatile and strong card that I am excited to play in a value N'zoth priest deck.

Stonetusk Boar + 2x Power Word: Shield  +3x divine spirit + inner fire fits in 10 mana but I am happy playing against decks that will try doing this.

Pint-Size Potion + Potion of Madness is another option. That is the closest thing. So, instead of Djinni of Zephyrs, priests will be using Shadow Visions.

There is another new card revealed, that shows how the Elemental-Synergy will work (a shaman 7 Mana 4/4 that spawns two 2/3 taunts, if you played an elemental LAST turn). So it seems, that cheap elementals will be quite usefull to trigger the effect of their brethren (and the Mage-Legendary got WAY more interesting). Oh and Crystalline Oracle is just great...I love me some RNG :D.

Yeah...I think I dislike Shadow Visions too. First of, the card has zero direct inpact on the battlefield, which I normally try to avoid. And also I can foresee, what will happen all the time, when I play this card in a deck: it will be the last card or the last spell in my deck, when I draw it...

(also I already hate to get Shadow Visions offered in arena all the time...)

 

Oh and Sunkeeper Tarim looks to me like a new Paladin-Staple. Flexibility is king!

This is clearly it's biggest problem. Unless there is a huge meta shift you can't afford to not play a field impacting card until about turn 6 or 7. By then, you're almost better off with a standard draw mechanic than keeping this in your hand that long. Maybe we'll both be wrong and the meta will let it work, but I have my doubts.

A deck relying on that as its primary win condition would barely make it past rank 20 in all honesty - first it would have to rely on shadow visions returning a divine spirit. A priest playing shadow visions, an experienced player would see that as letting the cat out of the bag given the number of minion buff spells the priest has access to. More often that not, he'd be beaten by the time he ever got to 10 mana and built sufficient cards (other than Northshire Cleric, priest decks generally suck when it comes to the additional card draw he'd need to build his win condition)

      The Europe Spring Playoffs and Championship took place over the weekend of May 20-21, which decided not only the new Europe Champion, but also the four players who would represent Europe at the Global Spring Championship in Shanghai next month.
      After seven rounds of Swiss, the top eight players cut to a knockout phase. The results of which were as follows:
        Hoej beat   FibEli3
        Neirea beat   INER
        Rdu beat   Casie
        Kolento beat   StanCifka
      This means that Hoej, Neirea, Rdu, and Kolento will represent Europe in the Global Championship. The top eight being so strong is a sign that the metagame is in a healthy place. All of the players were already known to be among the best in Europe, and despite their lineups differing substantially, they were still able to make it through.
      Hoej went on to take the title, beating Kolento 3-0 in the final. Hoej has been touted as one of the best players in Europe for some time, but traditionally has brought Control decks to major events. This time around, he brought a very aggressive lineup, and was rewarded for his willingness to adapt his style to the meta.
      The deck archetypes that each player brought to the event are listed below:
      Hoej: Aggro Druid, Secret Mage, Murloc Paladin, Pirate Warrior
      Kolento: Jade Druid, Midrange Paladin, Quest Rogue, Quest Warrior
      Neirea: Jade Druid, Discover Mage, Quest Rogue, Quest Warrior
      Rdu: Aggro Druid, Face Hunter, Aggro Shaman, Pirate Warrior
      The next four players to qualify for the Global Championship will be decided next week, with the Americas Spring Championships.

      The Hearthstone Championship Tour (HCT) European Spring Playoffs will take place this weekend, 20-21 May 2017.
      This will be the first playoff event since Journey to Un'Goro was released, and so if anyone has saved any surprise deck tech, this is the event where it will be revealed.
      The top 64 point earners, and ties, from the EU server will be joined by 8 Tavern Hero tournament qualifiers for the event, which will be played in esports bars across Europe. If you want to attend one of the events to cheer on your local favourite, the list of locations can be found here. There will be side events for anyone wishing to attend, with Blizzard prizes available for winners, and the Power Core cardback for all attendees.
      The point standings, showing the top 64, can be found here. As usual the event is stacked with many of the big names from the region. The top four will advance to the HCT Spring Global finals next month.

      There's a new update arriving in the coming weeks and it's going to bring a much requested feature to HS: completing quests while playing with your friends! The other big feature coming with this update is importing decklists, allowing you to easily copy and share your favorite decks without resorting to screenshots or outside sites! No specific ETA has been given and if you want to know all the details check out the announcement post below.
      Blizzard (source)
      Hearthstone’s upcoming update has a lot of cool stuff in it, but we wanted to call special attention to a couple of features that we’re particularly excited about. We think you’ll like them too!

      Friends Forever
      When the new Hearthstone update arrives, you’ll be able to complete quests in Friendly Challenges! Just issue a Friendly Challenge to someone on your Friends list and rack up credit for nearly any quest you can receive.
      Last year, the Friendly Feud allowed players to complete quests when they played with a friend. You gave us a ton of positive feedback about that event, and a lot of you asked us to have Friendly Feuds more often. We thought that was a good idea, so we took it a step further!
      There are some minor caveats. For example, any quests that can’t be completed as part of a Friendly Challenge aren’t eligible, such as those that require you to play vs The Innkeeper or watch a match. Most everything else is fair game though, so now you’ll have a reason to make friends with a recent opponent that isn’t just to send them a compliment.
      Sharing is Caring
      You’ll soon be able to easily copy and share decklists with Deck Importing! No more screen shotting decklists, or staring at a web page as you carefully build a deck, card by card. Trying—and sharing—a new decklist will be as simple as copy and paste!

      Here’s how it works:
      If your deck is already full, when you select the Hero portrait at the top of a deck in your collection, you’ll see a Copy button*. Press that button and your decklist will be copied to your clipboard. If you paste your decklist into a text document, it will look like this:
      Click to view sample decklist. See that conveniently highlighted ‘code’ near the bottom? That code also works on its own, making it easier to share a decklist with friends in chat or social media.
      Importing a decklist is easy. When you go to create the new deck, Hearthstone will “know” when you’ve got a valid decklist on your clipboard, so you’ll be asked if you’d like to create a new deck with the one you’ve got copied. Then you can watch your new deck be built before your eyes. You can also import decklists to Tavern Brawls!
      Don’t have all the cards a deck requires? No worries! In that case, it works just like a deck recipe. Any cards you don’t already own will appear insubstantial and you can select them for suggested replacements. You might also notice that your golden and non-golden cards now stack in decklists too!

      Deck Importing is great for finding and sharing new decks, but it’s also helpful for managing your library of decks. Save the code for decklists you rarely use, and when you’re ready to play one again, just copy and import it.
      The new update including these features will arrive in the coming weeks. We’re super excited about them, and we can’t wait to hear what you think! 
      * Desktop users can use ctrl+c to copy a decklist (you’ll get a confirmation when your copy is successful), then ctrl+v when viewing My Decks to import a decklist.
