Knights of the Frozen Throne Card Reveal: Meat Wagon

12 posts in this topic

The latest card to be revealed, Neutral Epic: Meat Wagon, was revealed by streamer J4ckiechan. Unusually, he chose to rap his thoughts on the card.

J4ckiechan is known for doing things a little differently to most streamers, and this reveal is no exception. He describes the pros and cons of Meat Wagon in rap form better than text will do justice.

After watching that, you will see that most of the ideas are a bit of a reach. As a standalone card, Meat Wagon does not seem to be very good, but in conjunction with cards that bring it back, or copy it, maybe it could see play in a highly synergetic deck at some point in the future.

For a full list of previously revealed cards, as well as all of the information about the new expansion, check out our Knights of the Frozen Throne expansion hub.

I really hope they are reavling the worst cards, and letting the players discover the best cards at the very end. Otherwise, hearthstone is gonna die.

I'm glad they're adding a lot of fun cards to play with like this one, but some of these just seem really bad. Only place I can imagine this gets played is a malygos deck, and even then, you might as well just play barnes.

Many cards revealed have potential, but won't do good on their own.

I get the feeling that later cards that are revealed might make us sit there and go "OH! That card we saw earlier will work really well with this!"

He can always be Buffed so you could possibly get some strong turns with this. 

I do wonder how he works with Power Overwhelming.

He would die and summon something 4 attack or less.

So it would die with PO still active - that was what I wasn't sure on.

      This week's episode features a fresh take on a popular deck, courtesy of Casie.
      Can you guess the next move?
      Situation #22: Let's Even the Odds
      Picking up where we left off last week, we find ourselves in the middle of an odd/even matchup between Warlock and Shaman. I picked this situation partially because it was an interesting spot with many options available to us, and also because its a ladder situation I highly doubt any of my readers have encountered before:

      Commenters quickly identified several key factors about this matchup, namely that Defile and Hellfire are off the table for our opponent and that the only "board clear" available for our opponent is Despicable Dreadlord. Our opponent is more likely to have single target removal (such as Voodoo Doll) or is looking to play a demon-related 5 drop next turn in Skull of the Man'ari, Possessed Lackey, or Doomguard.
      Bozonik summed up this situation excellently in his comment from last week's thread:
      There seemed to be a consensus among commenters that "Option 1", Hero Power + Sea Giant was the line here. It puts a big nasty minion on the board, applying pressure and forcing our opponent to have Voodoo Doll. In the heat of the moment I went with "Option 2", the full clear, but after looking back on things and reading over the comments I believe Hero Power + Giant was the correct line. Despicable Dreadlord is really the only card which gives us serious trouble next turn (since our opponent won't be able to play Possessed Lackey and kill it) and this line plays around Dreadlord while applying just as much pressure as the other options.
      I was secretly hoping that the tap + Giant wasn't the correct line here (because its the most obvious one), but the obvious solution is often the correct one. If you're ever in a situation such as this where you have no idea what your opponent is up to, it's probably best to go for the "obvious" line and not get cute.
      Situation #23: Broken Mirrors
      Today's deck comes courtesy of Kevin "Casie" Eberlein, who cut the dragon package from Mind Blast Priest to turn the deck into something with much more of a combo/aggro feel to it. Many pros are pegging Mind Blast Priest to be the next "best deck in the meta" after the nerfs drop, and Casie's list has a serious advantage in the mirror match:
      Though I didn't find nearly as much success with the deck as Casie did, it did provide me with plenty of interesting situations for What's the Move! Here's the one I ended up choosing for this week's episode:

      It's turn 2, we're on The Coin, and our ladder opponent just played a Wild Pyromancer. For the purposes of this exercise, we can say that we're 100% confident our opponent is on Mind Blast Priest. However, this isn't a mirror match at all. We have Prophet Velen, Holy Smite, two copies of Holy Fire (most Mind Blast Priests run just one), and Lifedrinker in our deck, which gives us a huge advantage in late-game Anduin vs Anduin races. Knowing that we have an advantage in the late game should color our decision heavily on turn two, where have a surprising number of options available to us.
      So, what's the move?
