Recommended Posts

A new Warlock spell, Treachery, has been revealed.

The reveal was made by Spaziogames.it on YouTube.

The ability to give minions to your opponent is an exciting one, and has been shown to be incredibly powerful in other card games. The versatility of such an ability should not be underestimated. You can force opponents to draw cards with Acolyte of Pain, lose their board with Doomsayer, or take a heap of damage with Bittertide Hydra. While it remains to be seen how this card ends up being used, it will be one to keep an eye on through its entire existence in Standard, and will be an ongoing threat for combo orientated decks in Wild.

This expansion seems to have added several unusual cards to Warlock, and it will be interesting to see if any new archetypes are created because of them.

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.

Could be used with Doomsayer similar to how mages use frost nova.    Still lets the opponent drop more creatures after this goes off, but on the upside any deathrattle creations will still be sleeping.

Doomsayer + Treachery is a 5 mana board wipe only 1 mana over Equality Pyromancer.

Ofc Warlock have Twisting Nether and Doom that are much more card efficient but this replaces the old Sylvanas + Shadowflame that stardard have lost so it might be useful since it gives warlock a wipe available at turn 5 

Other than doomsayer there isn't much good stuff to give to your opponent, Bomb Squad can be used as lethal 5 damage to face but cost is too high to just deal 5 damage, Ticking abomination is just a much worse Doomsayer, Bittertide Hydra + a board of 1/1s require to have such baord before dropping the hydra and usually nobody leaves such boards in play.

It will be played with Doomsayer in control decks for sure in others there is no value, such in discard warlock you can't play combos because you discard the pieces.

Still waiting for a card that resurrect warlock in standard ... Antique Healbot > Reno Jackson > Give us the long waited hero heal in this set??? Hoping in the Hero card for some kind of heal effect

Now I am just waiting for a Majordomo Executus OTK deck to pop up in wild. An interesting card, but there aren't enough cards to make it good enough to see play in strong decks.

Maybe. But this is just an extremly interesting mechanic! I'am getting really excited to try this out...

...

oh...and...btw: Yogg-Saron, Hope's End will get a lot more treacherous with this :P

I was thinking the same thing. The card is slowly making more sense.
