Star Aligner Card Reveal

Recommended Posts

After a string of exciting card reveals, Star Aligner brings us one of the first whiffs from The Boomsday Project.

 

Chinese gaming site NGA has revealed a new Neutral Epic minion, Star Aligner:

Forgive the obvious pun, but it seems as though the stars will need to be aligned for this card's Battlecry to trigger. It will count itself towards the 3 minions it needs, but you will also need to have 2 more minions in play with exactly 7 Health to get the powerful Battlecry effect (it does not say 7 or more). If a deck can ever consistently trigger Star Aligner, then it will surely be interested in a Neutral board wipe which adds a 7/7 to the board and deals 7 damage to the opponent's face. However, I have a hard time believing there will ever be a deck that can pull this off. Though Taunt Druid is excellent at pumping out minions with high amounts of Health, a reliable method for setting the health of these minions to 7 does not currently exist.

Do you think Star Aligner is hot garbage, or am I missing something? Let me know in the comments, and be sure to check out our Boomsday Hub for more spoilers from the upcoming set.

I totally agree with Aleco here.

But I would keep this card in mind. If it becomes possible to pull this...to align the stars reliably in the future this might become quite powerful.

Anyways, cool and thoughtful design. Making it explicit 7 keeps players from easily cheating it out with 0-cost-Snowfury Giants or the Frost Lich Jaina-Hero Power (if it was 6).

Buffing an existing board with cheap spells might be the easiest way to trigger it. Druid could feasibly do it if enough 1/5s remain from plague.

Some form of Resurrect Priest that has only lost 7 HP minions could do it with double resurrect in wild.

Double doomsayer (or public defender) coin aligner is the only consistent way to pull it off in standard that I can think of.

Can’t see it being viable except for memes.

Well, playing two 8-health minions for 0, dealing one damage to everything, then aligner is probably achievable too.

Well, actually, Aviana-Kun-Mark of the Wild On Aviana-Brann-Aligner-Aligner-Floop is an achievable 42 damage lethal.

Meh... Not ridiculous enough to top Aviana - Kun the Forgotten King - Majordomo Executus -Clockwork Automaton - Carnivorous Cube - double Faceless Manipulator - Deathwing 512 damage OTK
