Two new 2-mana 2/2s (that's a lot of 2s) were revealed for Warlock and Priest respectively.
The two EVIL cards were revealed on an Instagram story by @PlayHearthstone. Apart from the obvious similarities they share, they are completely different: their wording is inconsistent and one of them looks better than the other!
Destroy your own minion(s) to gain a bonus effect hasn't been that good for Zoolock, apart from Grim Rally which does buff the rest of your board. It also remains to be seen how good Lackeys are going to be and if Lackey support cards will be printed. The Genius is probably meant to target Lackeys on the board (they are expendable, after all) to produce other Lackeys.
I like this EVIL guy slightly better, since Priest has historically suffered when it comes to the 2-mana slot. However, I am not sure how good Lackeys are going to be in a class that has always thrived on Control. It still a bit unclear to what direction Priest is heading to in Rise of Shadows, since all 3 of its cards that have been revealed so far hearken to pretty standard mechanics/archetypes for Priest (Deathrattle, stealing, Forbidden).
Rastakhan's Rumble didn't feature a Paladin Secret, but now we have a new one in Rise of Shadows!
No Surrender was unveiled by CarryPotter on YouTube. The video is in Spanish and contains gameplay of the new card.

A lot of people seem to think this card is really powerful, since it can compliment well an Aggro/Secret Paladin deck, it synergises with Bellringer Sentry and keep stuff like Secretkeeper alive. Personally, I am not too sold on it, since Aggro Paladin's cheap and small minions or your dudes will still die from most board clears even after the +2 health buff applies.
What do you, guys and gals, think?
Two new cards from Rise of Shadows were revealed earlier today!
Unleash the Beast was revealed by Chinese streamer Mr. Wuco on Twitch.
The Wyvern is a Beast. This makes for an excellent Arena card, while it also works well with Zul'jin.
Keeper Stalladris was revealed by Eurogamer. The article also contains gameplay of the card.
According to the Eurogamer article, to support Stalladris' release, Blizzard has also gone back and added new art to older Choose One cards, as both choices sometimes used the same design. The card is comparable to Fandral Staghelm and it can go well into Token and Hand Druid. In Wild, things may get a bit out of hand with Jade Idol.
The community card reveals begin with a Paladin card with Twinspell.
Lightforged Blessing was revealed in a video with a catchy song by Japanese site Dekki.
Every recent expansion has a card printed for Heal Paladin and Rise of Shadows is no exception. While it may not seem exciting at first glance, Lightforged Blessing can work really well with Wild Pyromancer and Immortal Prelate. Obviously this card isn't made to be used early, since Heal and Control Paladin don't really have early board presence, and one copy of it should be enough, since it has Twinspell. The other issue is that no matter how much support Heal Paladin keeps getting and even though its concept is well made, it never really took off as an archetype.
The reveal period for Rise of Shadows kicks off with the customary reveal stream.
Peter Whalen was joined by Chris Sierra and Cora "Songbird" Georgiou and they revealed a total of 12 cards. We also got an interesting tidbit of information as callbacks and Lackeys will be limited to the E.V.I.L classes, while the Twinspell Keyword will be available only to the Defenders of Dalaran.
With Dr. Boom as his Legendary minion, Warrior is all about mechs and more importantly bombs!
Rogue's leader is King Togwaggle who brings back Treasures.
Rogue has another callback mechanic: Unidentified!
Two potential Contracts were revealed; there are four in total.
Mage is all about minions again. Maybe it will work this time!
And here are two neutrals that were also revealed:
The final reveal stream will take place on April 3rd and it will be presented by Dean "Iksar" Ayala, Brian Kibler and Chris Sierra. You can check out the schedule for the upcoming community reveals here.
