Savjz Reveals Two New Echo Cards For Rogue

Recommended Posts


The new Rogue cards revealed by Savjz support an echo-themed deck, and imply that more Echo cards might be coming to Rogue in the near future.


Fan-favorite Savjz just revealed two new Rogue cards on his Youtube channel. Both of the new cards support an Echo theme, which may be a focus for Rogue in the new expansion:

Mistwraith has respectable stats on its own as a 4 Mana 3/5, but threatens to grow quickly out of control with a cheap Echo card (such as Pick Pocket or Cheap Shot). If you can Mistrwaith on turn 5, then follow it up with 3 copies of either of the aforementioned 2 Mana Echo spells, you'll have yourself a juicy 6/8 to lay down beats with on turn 6. The fact that Mistwraith doesn't ask a lot to be powerful makes it quite enticing, and it will surely be a 2-of in every Echo themed Rogue deck. If Echo Rogue is a strong deck in The Witchwood metagame, I expect Mistwraith to be a big part of the reason why.

Whereas Mistwraith is obviously unplayable in a non-Echo deck, Pick Pocket might have some value in off-class Rogue decks along with the new Spectral Cutlass. Though I doubt a theme which is so heavily random in its nature will be strong without a few more significant cards from The Witchwood to support it, there may be a case for Pick Pocket as a late-game finisher in decks which care about casting lots of spells. Much like Cheap Shot, Pick Pocket is excellent with the likes of Violet Teacher and Gadgetzan Auctioneer. I doubt it'll do enough on its own to earn a spot in a midrangey deck, but the sheer number of potential synergies which exist for Pick Pocket lead me to believe that it might eventually find a deck to call home.

What do you think about these 2 new Rogue cards? Will they be players in the new metagame or total busts? Let us know in the comments, and as always, be sure to check out our Witchwood Hub for more spoilers from the upcoming expansion.

Pick Pocket is not worth it imo. Swashburglar saw play because it's a 1 drop as well as a pirate and we saw an occasional appearance of Undercity Huckster being a minion as well. This new card offers nothing than wasting your mana and turn to get a card you don't want. Maybe a desperate miracle rogue wants it, no idea.

Mistwrath, looks pretty much like Unbound Elemental, same mechanic just with overload and it saw no play even in overload decks you have better alternatives.

I keep loling (is that a word? it should be) about WW card.

Pickpocket is so bad it is offensive tbh.  Cast it once and hallucination is obviously better.  At two casts we have to ask ourselves what is better discovering 1 card or two random ones?  Probably two random ones but only by a little bit, and definitely no where close to 3 Mana worth of better.  Drawing from your deck is better then a random card in your opponents, so drawing from your deck is way better then a random card from your opponents class, which makes this compare unfavorably to thistle tea at 3 casts, which was a card significantly below the power curve.  I would go so far to argue that 4 random cards from your opponents class would be worse, on average, then 3 copies of a card from your deck.  Then finally at a full 5 casts, it compares very unfavorably to Sprint, a card that does not see play.  This is also bad in miracle, you don't want a bunch of random crap gumming up your hand when you are finding them deals.


Mistwraith would be good if a value echo rogue deck ever existed.  But rogue has bad aoe, bad taunts, and bad healing, so that seems highly unlikely.  Good card, class just won't be able to utilize it.

      Blizzard encountered a bug where the client would disconnect after using Heart of Vir'naal and minions with the Invoke keyword, so they disabled Galakrond animations in Hearthstone until further notice.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Hey Folks,
      We are currently in the process of rolling out a hotfix that will disable the animations for Galakrond. The reason for this:
      We’ve found multiple occurrences in which Galakrond’s animations can cause the Hearthstone client to disconnect. The primary occurrence: when playing Quest Galakrond Shaman, we encountered (as well as received word) a bug where the client would disconnect after using Heart of Vir’naal + minions with the Invoke keyword.
      This is just a temporary solution that will fix the client disconnects. We are aiming to ship a client patch within the next week that will be the long-term fix for this issue.
      The team is continuing to keep an eye out for issues, so please do let us know if you encounter more pesky bugs

      It has come to this. Rafaam and his League of E.V.I.L. have set the final stage of their plan into motion: to resurrect Galakrond, the progenitor of all dragonkind. But the League of Explorers is hot on their heels...and they're bringing a few dragons of their own.
      Take to the skies — Descent of Dragons is now live!
      Those aligned with E.V.I.L. have the opportunity to resurrect Galakrond, who will manifest into one of five variations based on your class. Best of all, when you go to open your first Descent of Dragons card pack, you’ll recieve all five Galakrond cards for free! Learn more about Galakrond in our Draconic Details blog.

      New Keyword: Invoke
      A newly awakened proto-dragon is frightening enough on its own, but Galakrond's strength grows as his followers Invoke him.
      Playing any card with the Invoke keyword will enhance Galakrond's power and enable even greater devastation.
      You may be familiar with quests, which provide rewards for completing specific objectives during your matches. Sidequests follow that tradition, but have shorter, easier-to-complete objectives to allow you to earn victory more quickly — or even complete multiple sidequests in one game.
      New Spells: Dragon Breath
      The mightiest dragons come with the mightiest dragon breaths. Gain the upper hand over your enemies with these powerful spells that become more powerful if you're holding a dragon.
      Login Rewards and Legendary Quests
      All players who log in to Hearthstone during Descent of Dragons will receive the five Galakrond cards above as well as two Shield of Galakrond cards.
      In addition, a new legendary quest line will be available starting today, granting Descent of Dragon packs, packs from Rise of Shadows and Saviors of Uldum, and a 200 Gold reward.
      Arena Rotation
      A new arena rotation awaits! As of today, the arena now includes cards from the following sets:
      Basic Classic Blackrock Mountain The Grand Tournament One Night in Karazhan Knights of the Frozen Throne Rastakhan's Rumble Descent of Dragons COMING SOON
      Galakrond's Awakening
      The final battle in the Year of the Dragon's solo adventure story arc is Galakrond's Awakening, coming this January! We won't spoil too much, but we hope you're ready to battle E.V.I.L. (or good) and collect 35 new cards! More details on Galakrond's Awakening will be coming soon.

      The Descent of Dragons content update launched with a few bugs that will be fixed in the near future. Namely, Sathrovarr was not intended to become unplayable, some cards are not working at all or showing a system error screen after trying to disenchant them.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Quick updates on where a few of the outstanding issues are:
      Sathrovarr : As a confirmation, Sathrovarr was absolutely not intended to become unplayable with the patch on Thursday. We know what caused this, and it’s going to require us to put a fix in to the launch of Descent of Dragons next Tuesday. As of right now, we expect Sathrovarr to be back to normal on Tuesday.
      Disenchanting Cards: Right now, some cards are showing a system error screen after trying to disenchant them. This is something we can fix on our side, and we’re working to get that out today before the weekend.
      [Hearthstone Battlegrounds] Rafaam’s Hero Power: Last night, we resolved an issue where Rafaam’s Hero Power wasn’t properly allowing a golden upgrade until after buying something. This should be working normally as of right now.
      Missing Cards / Deck Codes: We’ve seen a lot of varying reports of things with cards not working, and there are a few different things at play. We noted previously that as the “Treasures from the Tomb” wild event ended, decks containing the temporary wild cards are going to be unusable, but they may not clearly denote why. If a deck code isn’t working, that’s the first thing to check. Sathrovarr is also likely to cause some issues until we correct that next week. Finally, the team is currently investigating some reports that Treasures from the Tomb cards that were owned in a player’s collection may have disappeared after the event ended. As a reminder, all cards from that event were granted as temporary event cards - they were never actually added to your collection, but simply lived there as separate, special versions of those cards, even if you already had them in your collection. Those event cards are now gone, but anything that was in your collection before the event should still be there. If it isn’t, we’d appreciate more info on what cards you’re missing to help us track this one down.
