Splintergraft Reveal: The Witchwood

Recommended Posts


This Druid legendary seems underwhelming and doesn't seem to be on the same level as the other Witchwood cards revealed for Malfurion.

This card was revealed by BlackFireIce on Facebook. The video is in Polish.


Screencap from the video

Looking at the trend that has started from Kobold & Catacombs, it is a nice surprise that Splintergraft has vanilla stats for a late game Legendary minion. Perhaps this is the case because it's effect is not that amazing. There could be a use for it in Big Druid or you can just copy something meme-y like Stonetusk Boar or Saronite Chain Gang. Just for the stats, it's not a bad card to include in one's deck (what type of deck would that be is another question), but I think it's more of a win more card and it doesn't seem broken enough.

Judging from the artwork, the next card that is going to be revealed is the first Mage legendary minion (you can find the schedule here)! Make sure to check out our Witchwood hub for the latest card reveals and all the information you need about Hearthstone's new expansion.

Besides the obvious combos with basic keywords, here's a couple fun ones:

Feral Gibberer

If you make a 10/10 Gibberer, play it and attack > The Feral Gibberer that you'll get back to your hand will still be a 1/1 (and not a 10/10), given how the buffed-in-the-board-copy-to-hand interaction works. If you buff a Feral Gibberer, you don't get a buffed copy to your hand.

I'm not sure I get the Meat Wagon one. The others look nice, especially Arcane Tyrant - might actually see play!

Some pretty interesting otk options.  Twig + 2 faceless manipuators is an otk with a boar.  Probably too slow.  Interesting, but probably bad.  Kind of the theme so far with this set.

Meat wagon combo means you can pull a card with 9 atk or less from your deck for free.

This is actually a good finisher you play it at turn 9 with Stonetusk Boar

At turn 10 a 10/10 charge hits enemy face.

Since druid lose all Jade things now have to play something else if you wanna go in late game or just play aggro.

If you ever tried Dinosize this is the same thing but with Dinosize opponent doesn't know 10 damage are going to his face next turn with this you tell enemy I've a 10/10 charge in hand that wants meet your face prepare yourself

Turn 9 cast unstable evolution (that you got from witch’s cauldron earlier) on a 7 drop on your board, then play splintergraft on the resulting Al’Akir Windlord. Turn 10 win. EZ.

      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.
