Corpse Raiser and Runeforge Haunter Reveals: Knights of the Frozen Throne

Recommended Posts

Corpse Raiser and Runeforge Haunter have been revealed, which brings the total number of cards revealed so far to sixty-one.

Alongside Shadowblade and Leeching Poison, Runeforge Haunter adds more ways to interact with weapons in Knights of the Frozen Throne.

As with Divine Shield Paladin discussed earlier, it is difficult to know how many of these cards will be useful, and whether there are more still to come. It does seem though, that a new build of Tempo Rogue should be forthcoming after release.

Corpse Raiser continues to explore ways to bring back minions. This particular card is more interesting than some of the others as the Resummoned minion comes straight back into play when it dies. Ancestral Spirit has seen play in decks from time to time, and it remains to be seen whether Corpse Raiser is cheap enough to make the same effect better, or if having it attached to a minion, for 3 extra Mana, turns out to be a downside.

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.

Corpse Raiser is going to be one to look out for in many decks. Though it's body may be a 3/3 the fact that it can give Ancestral Spirit's effect to any minion will be worth the stats, I think anyways.

I like these two cards. Rogue always struggled with survival, so coupling this with the new weapon should yield great value. Corpse Raiser is obviously going to be great with big deathrattle minions, and acts as pseudo-removal protection.

Would Runeforge Haunter work with Medivh's weapon?

Seems like it should work with all weapons. Even gorehowl if you burgle it and go face for 7 every turn. I don't think rouge is really scary with medivh's weapon though. Most spells are cheap.

Vanish would not only clear the board, bring back this and Medivh (if he lived for a turn), but get you a 6 cost minion as the only thing left on the board.    You also have Assassinate, Sprint, Shadow Strike, etc.

I'm pretty sure the vanish would first create a 6 cost minion, to then bring it right back to your hand as the spell hits the board.

Both cards seem pretty solid. Someone at blizzard seems to like that 5/3 statline though.

I've noticed the same thing.

Corpse Raiser seems to me to be a little on the weak side, the effect is super neat, but what makes ancestral spirit great is not only shamans overstatted minions with overload to combo it with more fluidly, but also the low cost of spirit.  At 5 mana, this will be hard to combo with much that is left on the board.  If you can get something to stick, all you need is a 3/3 or so to make it really worth it value wise, but that might not matter when you have a 5 drop that is traded up into by a 2 drop.  If it is seen anywhere, it will just be a strong midrange value card, maybe in a more midrangy style of zoo, that thing would be nasty with doomguard if it can't be cleared.

 

Runeforge haunter might end up being good, but a 5/3 statline is going to hold it back.  Tempo rogue with weapon buffs might see this card being used, but getting traded up into by things half your mana generally are not played in tempo decks.

Would something that is CR-ed be brought back by N'zoth, I wonder? Could make for some incredibly powerful N'zoth turns if so.

Unfortunately no. N'Zoth only revives minions that have Deathrattle naturally.

Watch for 2 more hours and you’ll receive another one! Twitch has updated how drops work on their end, and this is Hearthstone’s first time utilizing Twitch Drops since these changes were put into place. Here is what you need to know:
      You’ll now be able to see your watch time progress towards any given drop. You will no longer receive drop rewards automatically. You must instead claim the drop on the channel you’re watching or in the Drops Inventory menu on Twitch within the first 24 hours of earning it.  You will need to claim your first Twitch Drop reward BEFORE you can earn progress towards a second. Twitch users can now earn rewards before linking their Battle.net account to Twitch. Rewards will expire 7 days after they’ve been claimed if a Battle.net account has not been linked. After you’ve claimed a reward on Twitch, please make sure you’re logging into the region you’d like to receive the drop(s) on, as the first region you log into will be where we deliver your packs. It can take up to ~30 minutes to receive your reward(s) in game after claiming. You must link your Twitch and Battle.net accounts before you can receive a drop.
      Link Your Battle.net & Twitch Accounts
      You'll need to link your Twitch.tv and Battle.net accounts to receive Twitch Drops. Here's how:
      Log in or create an account on Twitch.tv. Navigate to the Settings menu by clicking your account name in the top-right corner of the home screen. Navigate to the Connections tab of the Settings menu. Find the Battle.net section, then follow the instructions after selecting a region and clicking Connect. When connecting accounts, be sure that you're currently logged into the Battle.net account on which you'd like to receive your rewards. More Just Around the Corner
