Cobalt Scalebane has been revealed. It is a Neutral Dragon minion. It is the forty-seventh card to be unveiled.

Cobalt Scalebane is a somewhat unremarkable card, except for the fact that it is a Dragon.

The stats of the card, and the effect, are likely too slow to be of long term use unless for some reason it is played in the same deck as a card with Stealth, such as Finja, the Flying Star. However, they are not that far behind the curve, and the fact that Cobalt Scalebane is also a Dragon could well be relevant in the future, especially when Drakonid Operative rotates out of Standard.

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.

Prime arena material. Having it trigger once is ''essentially'' the same as a 8/5 for 5 spread over two bodies. Over-time value generators have historically not been all that great in constructed however, but it does have that dragon tag, which is neato. Doesn't really fit into any of the current decks, so it's hard to tell where it will, if at all.

I can see it doing beautifully when drafted for Paladin in Arena. Unless you're a mage, those tokens are gonna be super hard to remove.

Yeah ok goodbye arena. If constructed remains the same SMOrcfest, I will switch to solo adventures I guess. 

As Oxy said, the card is not good enough for constructed, but way too good for arena.
Making it "at the start of the turn" rather than end would be better for arena health imo, but again, it's not a reality yet, so maybe I'm just unnecessarily pessimistic.

There's always hard AI to play against!

      The latest Hearthstone community contribution allows you to train the skills needed to master Combo Priest: quick thinking, fast mouse movements, strategic decisions and on-the-spot calculations. What's more to ask?!
      Combo or OTK or APM Priest is a reiteration of Combo and Vivid Nightmare Priest that was born with The Boomsday Project thanks to two cards: Topsy Turvy and Test Subject. Dog is credited as the creator and true master of the deck:
      Many have subsequently tried and failed to pilot the deck, which can require almost 100 moves during the 75 seconds of a single turn. Pro players like Trump and Thijs have hilariously failed, while others like Disguised Toast and Kolento kept trying until they got the hang of it.
      Right now, you might be dreading that you don't have the IQ to play this deck. Fear no more: everything can be practiced and Patashu has made the tool for it! Combo Priest Simulator allows you to practice the OTK combo on your browser, while also timing you. You can change the parameters of the starting gamestate, too.
      In all seriousness, the deck's winrate is below average and it's honestly too much trouble for too little gain. Then again, slamming your opponent's face for 100+ damage is quite satisfactory. It would be awesome if someone was brave enough to bring this deck at a tournament: it would be the casters' nightmare!
      Apart from Combo Priest Simulator, we have a guide for Topsy Turvy OTK Priest here on Icy Veins; the guide breaks down the necessary steps of the combo in a useful priority list. Alternatively, you can listen to Aleco trying to explain how the deck works to Patrick (and actually succeeding) in the latest Icy Veins Podcast!
