Seeping Oozeling Reveal: Kobolds & Catacombs

It's rare, it's slimy, and it's latest card to be spoiled from Kobolds and Catacombs.

It wouldn't be a proper dungeon crawl without an encounter against a giant ooze, and it wouldn't be a proper Hearthstone set without a Hunter card with Deathrattle synergy. Say hello to Seeping Oozeling:

Despite the random nature of this card's Battlecry, it actually doesn't seem too difficult to construct a deck with nothing but hard-hitting Deathrattles. As a mere 5/4 for 6 mana I doubt that Seeping Oozeling will see play on the back of its stats alone, but there are plenty of powerful Deathrattle cards for this ooze to gobble up from your deck. Deathwing, DragonlordCairne Bloodhoof, and Rat Pack come to mind as potential friends for the Oozeling.

Do you think that Seeping Oozeling will find its way into standard decks this December? Let us know what you think about the card in the comment section, and remember to check our news forum and the Kobolds & Catacombs hub for more new cards from K&C!

No matter if this card will be playable or not, what is it with all the random stuff? Are they trying hard to make HS a real joke?

This card isn't unfair enough compared to the Highmane for example. However, synergy might still be possible. Perhaps a hunter class version of Brann Bronzebeard, that would certainly make it a bit more competitive, but again, even more RNG based and arguably still worse than Highmane because Highmane just isn't dependant on either a secondary card or a good RNG deathrattle.

 

That said, if there will be enough non-deathrattle cards in a competitive deck, then having a specific deathrattle enabler can make this really powerful. Similar to, say, Barnes into double Yshaarj.

 

I mean, if you could always use Seeping oozeling and get an Anub'arak deathrattle then obviously the Seeping oozeling would be miles ahead of Highmane; but you still have to deal with the fact that 1. you weaken your deck simply by putting Anub'arak in it and 2. if you draw Anub'arak before you get to play your Seeping oozeling, you're a sad boi.

 

 

I'm thinking though:

1. Play Seeping oozeling, get Carnivorous Cube deathrattle.

2. Play Carnivorous Cube and target it on Seeping oozeling

3. Divide by 0.

Question is, do you copy the deathrattle in the "summon 2 copies of it" effect?

I don't think so, because the card won't know what it's supposed to summon. It can't know unless it destroyed something in the first place.

And Anub'arak is a rogue card, not seeing it that often might have confused you lol.

Honestly I don't think this card would be good enough unless it hits sylvanas, sneeds old shredder, pack rat, cairne... I might be missing a couple, but the list doesn't really look viable for hunter. Again and again they keep printing cards that would be very interesting and potentially actually playable in any class capable of going into the late game, but instead make it be in hunter.

You'd summon 2 copies of nothing since the battlecry never triggered, so, nothing would happen.

If this card copies cairne, arguably one of the strongest death rattle effects in standard, it is a worse cairne.  And cairne sees very little play.

I wish they wouldnt flood the front page with a post for every single card every time a new set comes out.......

Personally I like it, can quickly see if there’s any new cards since I last looked.

      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!
