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)

      A callback to Annoy-o-Tron, this new Mech card could be a serious player in the meta.
       
      Episode 2 of "Enter Boom Labs" has revealed another new Magnetic card from The Boomsday Project, called Annoy-o-Module:
       

       
      A callback to Annoy-o-Tron, this guy gains Magnetic and 1/2 worth of stats for just 2 Mana! The stats and keywords this card instantly adds to another Mech seem quite strong when you compare it to Blessing of Kings, which adds 2 more Attack to a minion but does not add Divine Shield and Taunt. This card isn't awful when played on it's own, and it plays well in a deck with Corpsetaker. Annoy-o-Module checks enough for boxes for me, and I full expect it to see play in the upcoming meta.
      Episode 2 of "Enter Boom Labs" is short but sweet, and you can watch the full video right here:
       
       
      Do you think Annoy-o-Module impact the game as much as Annoy-o-Tron did? Let us know in the comment section, and be sure to check out our Boomsday Hub for more spoilers from the upcoming expansion.

      Use Mini-Rag to destroy enemy minions and level up your"Wow!" emote in this week's Tavern Brawl.
       
      In celebration of The Midsummer Fire Festival, this week's Tavern Brawl is all about Ragnaros, Lightlord. Well, Mini-Rag to be more specific:
       

       
      A 2/3 Ragnaros with Immune will start the game on one side of the board. At the end of each turn, Mini-Rag will deal 1 damage to a random target on the other side of the board for each Attack he has, then swap to the other side of the board. Each time he kills an enemy minion he will gain 1 Attack, growing in power as the game progresses.
       

       
      Due to the sudden pressure that Mini-Rag applies to both players, I highly recommend playing an Aggro deck. I used Odd Rogue in my first game to take down an Odd Hunter. You could also play an anti-aggro deck to try and counter all the aggro decks running around, but be sure to play some self-healing such as Branching Paths or Healing Rain.
       

       
      The Tavern Brawl will track how many minion kills that Mini-Rag racks up. After 8, 30, and 60 Minion kills, you will level up the fireworks in your "Wow!" emote. This is a returning Tavern Brawl from last year's festival, and your running total of Mini-Rag kills from last year's festival carries over to this year. Happy hunting!

      Four new Mech minions were spoiled as details about the Magnetic keyword were explained and demonstrated in a short video.
       
      Many questions about Magnetic were answered in today's Hearthside Chat as four new Mech cards (three with Magnetic) were revealed in the video:
       
       
      Announced in the video were details on how the Magnetic mechanic will work in game. If a minion with Magnetic is played to right of another Mech minion, then the minion will be played as-is and the two minions will not fuse together. To "activate" Magnetic and fuse two Mechs together, you will need to play a minion with Magnetic to the left of a Mech minion on the board. It was also announced the Hunter, Paladin, and Warrior will be the three classes that focus on the Magnetic keyword, and there will be Neutral Magnetic minions as well.
      So, what kind of giant robots will we be assembling in The Boomsday Project? First, we get Wargear:
       

       
      As Stephen Chang pointed out in the video, 5 Mana for 5/5 worth of stats is the same rate as Blessing of Kings! Wargear will turn any Mech into an instant threat, and will surely be a key card in any aggressive Mech deck. Though the card is far from impressive when played without Magnetic, we've seen time and time again just how powerful it is to add stats to the board which you can immediately use to attack (Bonemare, Fungalmancer).
       

       
      If you're looking for a good target for Wargear's massive stat boost, look no further than Upgradeable Framebot. 2 Mana for 6 total stats is an incredible deal, which should make Upgradeable Framebot a plug-and-play 2 drop in any Mech deck. The fact that this minion has a low Attack should not scare aggro decks away from it, as the 5 Health makes it incredible target for minion buffs.
       

       
      Our first Warrior card with Magnetic is Beryllium Nullifier, which doesn't excite me as much as the previous two cards. Adding 3/8 and "Can't be targeted by spells or Hero Powers" to any minion makes it nearly impossible for anything but a Vilespine Slayer or Voodoo Doll to kill, but 7 Mana is a huge ask for tempo decks. Magnetic appears to be an aggressive ability by nature, which makes me skeptical about the need for a 7 Mana card which only adds 3 attack the turn it comes down. Beryllium Nullifier seems better suited for a "Big Mech" deck, so we'll have to wait and see which other cards get spoiled before writing this one off.
       

       
      Last but not least is Zilliax, the walking keyword! This guy has a keyword for every point of Mana he costs, and a few of these keywords are highly desirable ones. Even if Zilliax didn't have Magnetic, he still might be a reasonable card for the fact that he can trade into any 3 Health minion with his Divine Shield and Rush while gaining you 3 life with his Lifesteal, then stick around on the board with his Taunt after he is done. Is this the card that Town Crier has been waiting for? The Lifesteal and Rush also make him a great target for Countess Ashmore in slower decks. I have a hard time imagining a world where Zilliax doesn't see quite a bit of play in the new meta!
      What do you think about these four new Mech cards? Let us know in the comment section, and be sure to check out our Boomsday Project Hub for more information on the upcoming expansion.
