Pogo-Hopper Card Reveal

Recommended Posts

Who cares about meta implications? Pogo-Hopper is a robo-bunny on a pogo stick!

 

Our early contender for "most beloved card of the expansion" has just been revealed by Tars:

My favorite part about Pogo-Hopper is... everything. It's a robo-bunny on a pogo stick! It has a dangerously powerful Battlecry, and it even breaks the 4th wall by depicting a card that is "bouncing". What's not to love?

Obviously, the goal with Pogo-Hopper is to bounce it or otherwise replay it as many times as you can. The first two Pogo-Hoppers are a bit underwhelming, but each Pogo-Hopper beyond that will be a "must answer" sized minion. Rogue is the class best suited to take advantage of a card like this thanks to ShadowstepValeera the HollowSonya Shadowdancer, and Vanish, but there are plenty of Neutral cards which can replay a Pogo-Hopper as well (Youthful BrewmasterZola the Gorgon). Perhaps Pogo-Hopper could replace The Caverns Below in a similar deck to Quest Rogue, with two Witchwood Pipers to dig for them?

We know Pogo-Hopper is adorable, but will it be playable? Let us know in the comments, and be sure to check out our Boomsday Hub for more card spoilers.

Wild with Hobgoblin.

I wonder if they could fit a Crystal Core rogue. Bouncing them in and out would obviously buff them through the battlecry, and work with the Core's effect (their stats would be set, then buffed by the battlecry). Mmmhm...

Maybe... The comparable Infinite Murloc was pretty underwhelming in the Caverns of Time event, but Rogue (unsurprisingly) has the best tools to cheat, so it might just work.

That’s not to say a constructed Infinite Murloc deck couldn’t work though. Hoping to draft enough synergy in a randomised draft isn’t comparable to being able to optimise a deck around a synergy.

Interesting card. Works well with the new gang up minion. Hard to judge, could fall flat, could be ridiculous.

Does it definitely work with bounce effects? The text reads ‘for each other Pogo-Hopper’. If you bounce it back to hand and play it again, does it count as a new Pogo-Hopper and increase the +2/+2 counter, or count as another instance of the same Pogo-Hogger and not?

I mean.  It is adorable, but almost certainly not playable.  Rogue has so many other, better things to copy, bounce, or shuffle back into its library.  But man will it be fun to kill someone with an army of these.

Watch for 2 more hours and you’ll receive another one! Twitch has updated how drops work on their end, and this is Hearthstone’s first time utilizing Twitch Drops since these changes were put into place. Here is what you need to know:
      You’ll now be able to see your watch time progress towards any given drop. You will no longer receive drop rewards automatically. You must instead claim the drop on the channel you’re watching or in the Drops Inventory menu on Twitch within the first 24 hours of earning it.  You will need to claim your first Twitch Drop reward BEFORE you can earn progress towards a second. Twitch users can now earn rewards before linking their Battle.net account to Twitch. Rewards will expire 7 days after they’ve been claimed if a Battle.net account has not been linked. After you’ve claimed a reward on Twitch, please make sure you’re logging into the region you’d like to receive the drop(s) on, as the first region you log into will be where we deliver your packs. It can take up to ~30 minutes to receive your reward(s) in game after claiming. You must link your Twitch and Battle.net accounts before you can receive a drop.
      Link Your Battle.net & Twitch Accounts
      You'll need to link your Twitch.tv and Battle.net accounts to receive Twitch Drops. Here's how:
      Log in or create an account on Twitch.tv. Navigate to the Settings menu by clicking your account name in the top-right corner of the home screen. Navigate to the Connections tab of the Settings menu. Find the Battle.net section, then follow the instructions after selecting a region and clicking Connect. When connecting accounts, be sure that you're currently logged into the Battle.net account on which you'd like to receive your rewards. More Just Around the Corner
