Disguised Toast's Card Reveal: Dollmaster Dorian

Recommended Posts

One of the most popular members of the Hearthstone community has revealed one of the most exciting cards from the entire set.

 

Popular streamer Disguised Toast has revealed a new Neutral Legendary minion on his Youtube channel:

I know I've been saying this about several Legendaries in this expansion, but I'm incredibly eager to get my hands. I highly encourage you to check out Disguised Toast's video where he showcases it in action so you can see why this card is so exciting. The design on it is absolutely phenomenal for a wide variety of reasons:

  • It has a clearly a powerful effect, but that effect is balanced out a bit by the fact that it provides valuable information to your opponent.
  • Summoning 1/1 copies of a card is typically associated with combos or powerful Deathrattles and Battlecries, but since the copies are summoned on draw it forces some very unique deck building restrictions decisions. This positions Dollmaster Dorian as more of a value card than a "pure" combo card.
  • He is especially potent with minion-based card draw effects (such as Sense Demons into Voidlord, as noted by Toast in the video), and drawing cards is just about the most fun thing you can do in Hearthstone.

I view this card as much more of a late game, psuedo-miracle card than something you plop down on turn 5 and hope for the best. The obvious thing to do would be to hold on to this bad boy until turn 9 where you combo it into an Elven Minstrel, but I have little doubt that there will be much more creative ways to take advantage of this card's powerful effect than that. What kinds of synergies will you try to build with this card? A "Big EZ" deck with The Lich King and Ysera? A Deathrattle focused deck? Let us know in the comment section, and be sure to check out our Witchwood Hub for more information on the upcoming expansion.

This makes the new Shaman-Epic "Bogshaper" even more exciting.

Oh and I totally agree with Aleco, great design! Also: great artwork and cool flavour ;)

Just when you thought Barnes was awful!

At least this can "fizzle" by drawing spells, comes out a turn later, and only summons stuff at the start of your next turn, assuming no draw... but it's got this weird, late-game thing where you can play it and draw cards on the same turn. Oof. I don't know about this; whether it's good or bad, it's super tied to RNG, and I can't like this.

Must be a good use of this.

Should be a fun one to play around with. Though after spending some time pondering Turn 8 Dorian-howling commander shenanigans I’m now just going to be stuck with nightmares of aggro paladins just going Turn 8 Dorian-Divine Favor.

If this can't put Y'shaarj into play for 4 mana it's not Barnes - it's not even close to Barnes. 

You can't save up specific minions to combo with this, you have to draw them. 

If you build your deck around getting crazy hits off this minion, you have to first draw him and then have ways to draw cards and then get the specific minions you want. 

This card is capable of doing crazy things for sure, but it's not as inherently problematic as Barnes.

I don't get the comparison to Barnes, asside from both summoning 1/1s.  With very few exceptions you just plop Barnes on turn 4 and something magical happens.  This requires a lot of set up.  I also don't buy the sense demon synergy.  That seems like fantasy land to me.  8 Mana and you have to draw both sense demon and dollmaster before your void Lords.  You also probably don't want 2 sense demons either.  I could see it with some sort of dead man's hand combo, or miracle rogue using it and gang up after you go through your entire deck.  But those just seem memey and not a real strategy.

      A small server-side update is coming to Hearthstone tomorrow. Floating Watcher will be moved to Tavern Tier 4 and a bug that caused Galakrond the Nightmare's cost-reduction priority to negate the cost-increase effects on some cards will be fixed.

      Greetings Friends!
      We have a small 16.2.4 server-side patch going live tomorrow with the following changes:
      Floating Watcher is moving from Tavern Tier 3 →  Tavern Tier 4 Fixed an issue that caused Galakrond the Nightmare 's cost-reduction priority to negate the cost-increase effects of cards such as Boompistol Bully and Loatheb*. Once these changes have gone live, I’ll be sure to update this thread!
      Cheers,

      Blizzard has released a small client update (v. 16.2.3) with various bug fixes today. Soul Juggler will no longer cause de-syncing, Risky Skipper is now a Pirate minion type, and more.
      Don't forget to check out our Galakrond's Awakening Solo Adventure guide now that Chapter III has become available.

      Hey Friends,
      Just a short time ago, we started rolling out a small client update that addresses the following issues:
      Fixed an issue where de-syncing (a discrepancy between what the client shows vs. what is actually occurring on the server) would sometimes occur when Soul Juggler was dealing damage or when Deathrattles spawned minions in Battlegrounds. Art for Heroes + Hero Powers will now properly populate on mobile devices when the optional data download is paused. When the Air Raid Twinspell is played, the copy generated will now be the correct rarity. Risky Skipper is now a Pirate minion type, as originally intended. Spin 'em Up and Small Repairs will no longer have their mana cost displayed in red when generated from Keeper Stalladris. Please keep us updated if you encounter any new issues! Much love friendos ❤️
      Cheers,
      Chris_Attalus
