Coffin Crasher Reveal: The Witchwood

Recommended Posts


The newest Priest card is here to crash the party.


Brazilian Youtuber Sonecarox just spoiled a new Deathrattle card for Priest on his channel. Will this finally be the card that makes Awaken the Makers a reality?




I anticipate two major play patterns for this card. The first is to jam it in a combo-esque deck with only highly value Deathrattle targets (such as Obsidian Statue) and use this card as an insane tempo generator. The second is to put Coffin Crasher in a more fair but still Deathrattle-focused deck as a tool for powering out minions for Awaken the Makers. Either way, the amount of tempo you can buy off this card with some smart deckbuilding is potentially bonkers. A 6/5 is also big enough to be a threat on this own, which puts your opponent in the awkward spot of having to choose between getting beaten down by a big minion or giving you the opportunity to cheat on Mana.

Are you guys as excited to get brewing with Coffin Crasher as I am? Let us know in the comment section, and be sure to check out our Witchwood Hub for more information about the latest set.

I think this is definitely one seeing the whole set is needed. But it’s a very interesting card. 

The big deathrattle only route will be vulnerable to silence effects, but getting a statue out early can be brutal against aggro. Especially as you’ll likely be running eternal servitude too.

Quest would be fun if it works. And N’Zoth was always rather double-edged with that since you generally ran lots of small deathrattles like oracle, hoarder, thalnos that either generate cards or draw them. So you risked milling yourself.

Very powerful in wild too, although doesn’t fit in big Priest nor inner fire priest. But Quest or Reno Priest could use it if they’re viable.

Seems. . . really mediocre.  It compares pretty poorly to cairne and we all know how much play he sees (sure it can give you more tempo on the board in terms of stats, but it can also give you a lot less, plus it doesn't generate value like cairne does).  Unless you find some way to break this, like the lackey, I just don't see it.  Sure you can tempo something out.  But really, most decks that would want to play this favor value over tempo (because if you did favor tempo you don't want a whole lot of expensive stuff in your deck, and then cairne would STILL be better).  Plus this is really bad if you don't have a death rattle to pull.  Even with cheeky shenanigans, it seems like it would be hard to build a deck around it, since it has to be in your hand.  Like, hard pass on this.  Also when would you ever get a chance to play this vs aggro, the only time you really want to power through awaken?

If it would read "Summon from your deck" or "summon one that died" or even "discover one from your deck/that died" (last one being an Eternal Servitude as a minion) then I think it would see play, But like this, which priest wants a 6 cost card that has just ok stats doing nothing when played and being vulnerable to silence, sap etc?

People play Skull of the Man'ari that is much worse in terms of doing nothing when played, this pratically have text summon an Obsidian Statue from your hand at cost 0, at turn 6 is most likely you have no other DR left in hand other than the statue or another copy of this thing, if you played DR priest in standard with quest you'll never hold low mana DR minions in hand since your goal is to complete quest before the aggro destroy your face with Sunkeeper Tarim.

This thing is a 6/5 that summon a 4/8 with taunt/lifesteal... Cairne Bloodhoof is unplayable aggro ignore him and go face you don't even put him in deck with quest.

      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.
