Voidlord Reveal: Kobolds & Catacombs

Recommended Posts


We finally have a Warlock card reveal!

The card was uncovered by Chinese streamer Dog Thief on douyu.com.

Played on its own at 9-mana, Voidlord is not a very good option with these stats. However, it synergises extremely well with Krul the Unshackled and Bloodreaver Gul'dan, so we will probably see it in Highlander Warlock. As Aleco mentioned in his Knights of the Frozen Throne sunset article, one of the underestimated powers of Bloodreaver Gul'dan is bringing back these annoying little Voidwalkers. And yes, the tokens from Voidlord are also Voidwalkers, according to Mike Donais.

There are two more reveals for today and apparently we are getting a couple more Warlock card reveals on Monday (source). As week 1 of the card reveals comes to an end, don't forget to check out the schedule for the upcoming week. As always, you can find everything you need to know about Kobolds & Catacombs in our expansion hub.

A wall of 18 health is extremely hard to actually get through.  It might see play in non highlander warlocks simply because that is a lot of taunt and quite a few meta decks don't run silence, and the runs that do tend to not care as much about this thing.  I am hopeful for this card, it is really cool, although it might not have the impact that you would want for a 9 mana card, but curving this into blood reaver guldan is pretty neat.

Again an epic with high cost and bad stats welcome to the party my friend -.-

I am not happy, I was hoping to get a new useful demon then we get this. I don't want to say it's total trash but not that great either. Obviously made for control Warlock and only for that. And you might get a lot of bad results with it. Imagine you played 2 regular Void Walkers and 2 or 3 other demons plus that thing. It died and you got 3 more void walkers. Since the Gul'dan summoning is random you might not even get this guy back even if you might end up with a board of this and void walkers. Then you opponent kills the Voidlord first, the deathrattle gives you only one void walker due to a full board. And hiding behind a wall that has no attack power will not last long.

Even if I'm wrong then this guy will just bring up a very boring warlock to play against. I'm not happy about that either.

This card is really powerful and has strong synergy with Krul and Guldan.

It'a  a taunt with 18 health pratically impossible to get past in few turns if you use something like twisting nether to kill it he spawns another 9 hp of taunts so you need another board clear for them and they get ALL resurrected by Guldan making your board invincible to any deck that isn't face burn.

This is a card you really want play at turn 9+ since it's extremely hard to remove efficiently namely polymorph/hex other than that nothing can prevent it to soak 18 damage and it will be resurrected unless poly some turn later.

If you don't have silence to get past it so unless you are a priest means double spellbreaker in your deck you won't get past this easy.

I'll craft this to put in my Krul Warlock as soon as I can.

I could see this being decent, but I can't help but be concerned that priest will only dominate more with the addition of more good silence targets

      Right before the news for the upcoming PvE Adventure hits, Blizzard announced some much needed balance changes.
      Two card buffs from the May update will be reverted, while three more cards will be nerfed in an update coming next week.
      In May, we had the first card buffs in Hearthstone's history. In an occasion like that, it was certain that some of these buffs would be hit or miss. While there were definitely some misses, some of these biffs hit harder than expected and thus they will now will be reverted. These cards are Extra Arms, which will go back to costing 3 mana, and Luna's Pocket Galaxy going back to 7 mana.

      Two more cards from Standard are also getting nerfed in the August 26 update. Mage will suffer another big loss, as Conjurer's Calling will now cost 4 mana (up from 3).

      Another much needed nerf is that of Dr. Boom, Mad Genius. The 7-mana 7/7 (infinite 7s) meme started from the original card will be no more, as the cost of this heavily used Hero card will be upped to 9.

      Finally, a lot of Wild players can breathe out in relief as Barnes' cost will be increased to 5 mana, up from 4. I am not sure if this will be enough to alleviate the frustrations of the Wild community with the Legendary minion, but at least it's a step to the right direction.

      You can read about Blizzard's thinking behind these nerfs in the official blog post.

      In this new Brawl, all minions work like Nightmare Amalgam.
      This means that all minions count as Elementals, Mechs, Demons, Murlocs, Dragons, Beasts, Pirates and Totems!
      Since this a Constructed Tavern Brawl, you want to build your deck carefully. It's  clever to focus on synergies of a specific Tribe (Murloc, Pirate and Mech/Magnetic decks being the most successful ones so far) but you can also create some busted combos if you mix and match.
      Key cards for each type of Tribe include:
      Elementals: Lesser Ruby Spellstone, Frost Lich Jaina Mechs: Galvanizer, Mechwarper, Magnetic cards Demons: Ectomancy, Sacrificial Pact, Sense Demons Murlocs: Murloc Warleader, Underbelly Angler, Old Murk-Eye - basically anything that has Murloc written on it Dragons: Duskbreaker, Wyrmrest Agent, Drakonid Operative, Twilight Guardian Beasts: Crackling Razormaw, Master's Call, Scavenging Hyena, Revenge of the Wild Pirates: Ship's Cannon, Patches the Pirate Totems: Thing from Below, Totemic Surge, Splitting Axe Some Tribe combinations favour specific classes (like Elemental for Mages and Beasts for Hunters and Druids) or are strictly restricted to them (Totems and Demons), while classes like Shaman enjoy the freedom of being decent for various deck styles.
      Don't forget to grab your Hungry Crab, Golakka Crawler and a board clear - you are going to need them! Menagerie cards will also buff nicely your entire board.

      Mike Donais appeared yesterday on his daughter's stream, where he played some games and talked about various topics. He may also have inadvertently made a major reveal about two upcoming nerfs.
      A private message from Jared Noel, a former member of Hearthstone Analytics at Blizzard, appeared on stream. It was mentioned in it that changes would be made Conjurer's Calling and Extra Arms. The former will be increased to 4 mana, while the latter - even though it was one of buffed cards from The Boomsday Project - will be reverted to 3 mana.

      Now, Mike may have been replying "yes" to anything said above, but judging from his reaction this chat log wasn't meant to be shown on stream.
      The previous day from the stream, the Hearthstone developer had revealed that there will be an announcement on balance changes this week.
      Hopefully they are prioritizing a nerf patch before the Single Player Content patch
      Yep, we will give more info on balance changes this week hopefully. (source)
      During the stream, Donais also talked about a lot of other issues like card balance and Wild balance in particular, Arena changes, card design and more. Some interesting tidbits are that for Arena, they will revisit the old system, where you could see powerful cards and weak cards in the same pick - without this necessarily being a permanent change. There's also talk about upgrading Priest's board clears - one of the class's main weaknesses - since the team doesn't want to reprint the same cards.
