Recommended Posts

The ninety-ninth card to be revealed from Knights of the Frozen Throne is Forge of Souls, a Warrior Spell.

The card was revealed by Hearthstonetopdecks.

Forge of Souls is a tough card to assess. Drawing two cards for two Mana is a great starting point though. Beyond that, it is all about how you make use of the weapons in hand. Weapons' great strength is the tempo that they gain, but casting a card to fetch them is the opposite of that. This seems to indicate that the card will be better used in a value deck than in an aggressive one.

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 could see this as a 1 of in pirate decks to keep the burn train going at the end of the game.  In control, it is hard to assess though.  Weapons are nice, but really, you only run a couple of them and you mulligan hard for your win axes.  It might see play in a patron style of deck where you really want to fetch your deaths bite or the new warrior weapon.  Interesting, and I think it is good to see tutor costed so efficiently and not immediately come off as overpowered.

I don't think that this card can work in Pirate warrior. Aggressive decks don't  want two weapons in their hand because you can't play both in the same\next turn. It is even worse in Pirate warrior that can have the same weapon upgraded again and again for several turns.

Trump said during his stream that Death Knight Garrosh will be able to dual-wield. Do you think it's real, or was he just making fun? If it's real, Forge of Souls has strong synergy with it.

Even if its possible to dual wield,I dont think its going to be that strong, especially if pirate warrior and any paladin decks will be in the meta everyone will be running weapon removal, so its really hard to get value out of dual wield or weapon based decks in general. Also too many weapons in your deck sounds like something that would really easily cause your hand to get super clunky. Still, considering what the other effects of the Warrior DK will be, it can be strong of course.

Haven't there been a few streamers that have been joking around and "pretending" to leak cards? Not sure if Trump fits in there, but his acting after he said it seems a bit on the playful side.

My sentiments exactly. Prison Trump's back, maybe? But it's not like we will have to wait long to see whether he was just joking

While that is true. a lot of the time pirate warriors have 2 extra mana they hero power with around turn 5 or 6, sometimes earlier, and this basically gets them a weapon + a second weapon instead of 2 armor.  On top of that, top decking this gives them something to hit their opponents face with for the next 4 turns and thins their deck while they are trying to finish their opponent off.  It is very hard to stabilize while an arcanite reaper is smashing you in the face.  I think there are definitely merits of this in aggressive warrior decks.

Hobart Grapplehammer perked up when he saw this reveal. The poor guy's been a benchwarmer for too long!

I'd love to see someone hit Legend with "weapon warrior".
