Witch's Cauldron Reveal: The Witchwood

Recommended Posts

Hagatha's cauldron is making an appearance as a meme-worthy card in The Witchwood.

 

Hagatha's cauldron is making an appearance in The Witchwood. Despite Hagatha's status as a Shaman and her propensity for creating Shaman spells, her Cauldron is a Neutral card and will give all classes "access" to Shaman spells:

Is a random Shaman spell better than a random card from your deck? I think the answer to that question is almost certainly no, which makes me think that Witches Cauldron won't be replacing Cult Master any time soon. As fun and interesting as the effect is, I'm struggling to imagine a deck that will  want to play this card. The stats are bad, the chances of drawing a dud like Totemic Might are high, and the decks that can take advantage of this card most (swarm based aggro decks) can probably find way better things to do with 3 Mana.

Can you think of any ways to break Witches Cauldron? Let us know in the comments, and be sure to check out our Witchwood Hub for more information on the upcoming expansion.

(In fact this just fits with shaman decks)well,seems this expansion's shaman is all about getting random spells during the game,so I hope at least they add some good spells since I just saw some useless minions that give spells,so if they don't add useful ones...once more,there won't be shamans around ..

Quest Hunter value, it even works with Baku, this card is crazy.

Keep your Rhino alive, then play this Cauldron, run all your Broods into your opponents minions, get f***load of shaman spell.

Oh Blizz, why not stop buffing Quest Hunter already.

Another joke epic? Great!

They've said they plan on adding above average shaman class cards and since some are rotating I wouldn't dismiss these shaman cards so quickly. Seems like no minion hunter all over again. Sure it probably won't be tier 1 but I'm betting it won't be garbage.

I don't think that this card will see any truly viable play in the meta. However, I have a feeling that people like Dane or HysteriA or even Toast are going to come up with a deck with this that people might start playing for the hell of it.

Heck, it could be used as a possible finisher, when you've run out of steam in your terrible fight against a taunty deck, and this might give you some Lightning Bolts or Lava Bursts or even Earth Shocks for a daily moment-able occasion.

      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.
