Twelve Cards Revealed at Hearthstone: What's Next Panel

Recommended Posts

Peter Whalen and Liv Breeden talked about the design process of Rastakhan's Rumble and they revealed some new cards.

The two devs began with some basic info from the reveal announcement.

Each class has their own team, with their own Loa, Spirits and Champion. They share the same colours, ideals, thematic abilities.

The Warlock team is Hir'eek's Bats. These are obviously the bad guys and they are all about blood and damage.

The Priest team are Bwonsamdi's Zombies. They are represented by the Loa of Death, Bwonsamdi, and Pricess Talanji, daughter of King Rastakhan. They like bargains and raising the dead.

Paladins will always be the good guys and so are Shirvallah's Tigers. They fight honourably and they have this usual golden theme going.

Druid are represented by Gonk's Raptors. They like BIG dinosaurs.

Dinosaurs are also the theme of the Hunter team, Halazzi's Lynxes. But it's the small dinos and raptors that swarm the opponent. They are also represented by lynxes! Look at that cute Springpaw:

Krag'wa's Frogs are the Shaman team. They are all about spellcasting, but they are also slightly weird. After all, Krag'wa is a giant Frog Loa that likes to eat a lot of insects.

After playing around with all of its specialisations, the team decided that it was time for Fire to once again be the main Mage theme for Rastakhan's Rumble. Meet the Jan'alai's Dragonhwaks!

Lastly, it looks like Rogue is going for a Pirate thematic this expansion. Gral's Sharks are the embodiment of mischief!

There were no cards revealed for Warrior, whose team is called Akali's Rhinos - a bunch of headstrong and loud fighters.

So, the teams are as in Gadgetzan; Warrior-Hunter-Paladin/Warlock-Mage-Priest/Shaman-Rogue-Druid?

Pretty sure that each class is their own team. As said, priest is team loa of death (and only priest on that team)

Each class is their own team! Now that the panel is done, I have finished up and polished the article. Refresh the page!

So, the mage one is equivalent to "8 mana, 5/5, draw 3 cards"?     Obviously minor differences (your deck size isn't reduced and it lets you play a card 3x, etc etc) but that's basically the value.    Assuming of course it doesn't count your initial draw/coin?

Though, could be interesting with quest mage, you could potentially get 3 turns in a row, seems like that'd probably be overkill though.

Any opinions on "Surrender to Madness"?

This one seems quite terrible to me, since you want to get the +2/+2-effect as early as possible, but then you can't pay for your minions. Later on you buff fewer minions in your deck, but you are more likely to be able to pay for them. Also it doesn't even buff the stuff in your hand and is incredible bad when drawn in the lategame. Strange that this card got so many positive votes on some spoiler-pages.

Cool. Will the new expansion cards be included in Whizbang's decks?

Most likely. Whizbang's decks include all Deck Recipes and there where always new ones with new expansions. If Iam right, most of the current Whizbang-Decks will be replaced.

It's worst then Keleseth right now, IMHO. Having to lose 3 mana crystal won't be a big problem, but on the first turns it's overkilling yourself. This kind of cards are good in control deck, while deck buff are good in aggro/tempo deck. I don't see it played at all, unless there is a card that compensate for the mana lost.

      Chinese streamer YiLingShu has revealed a new Rogue card from Saviors of Uldum on the streaming platform Douyu.
       
      Chinese streamer YiLingShu has revealed a new Rogue card from Saviors of Uldum on the streaming platform Douyu: Bazaar Mugger.

      It's a fine addition to Rogue's kit of Burgle-themed cards. The "from another class" text is in keeping with the new design philosophy for the mechanic which enables cards like Vendetta to be active in Rogue mirror matches. Older cards such as Blink Fox and Burgle itself tend to say "from your opponent's class". Pilfer, a Classic set card, was changed in Patch 9.14 to reflect the commitment to the new direction.

      Hunter's latest additions are two massive creepy-crawlies with powerful effects.
       
       
      Two new Saviors of Uldum cards have been revealed via the PlayHearthstone Instagram story. This time, it's a pair of massive creepy-crawlies for Hunter: Wild Bloodstinger and Scarlet Webweaver.

      Wild Bloodstinger is slightly over-statted as a 6 Mana 6/9, but it will have to do battle with a Minion from your opponent's hand before you get to use those stats. This kind of effect has been seen occasionally before in Hearthstone: Dirty Rat was a much-loved (and much-hated) combo disruption card that denied many a Raza the Chained before they rotated to Wild together. Unseen Saboteur is a similar option in the current Standard card pool, but can be wildly inconsistent.
      Scarlet Webweaver is pretty much a Dreampetal Florist for Beasts. You could play King Krush for 4 Mana and do some big damage. You could also play Tundra Rhino for 0 Mana and do some big damage. The possibilities are endless.
      Taken together, these cards suggest Hunter might be playing with some bigger beasts than usual in Saviors of Uldum. This could be a nice change of pace after six months of messing around with Springpaw and various other 1/1s.

      A new Druid Spell has been revealed on Firebat's Youtube channel - and it looks to have a lot of untapped potential.
       
      Firebat has shared his exclusive Saviors of Uldum card reveal on Youtube: Hidden Oasis!

      The card has huge synergy with the new Druid quest, Untapped Potential, and makes it look potentially very strong - the card can be played on turn 6 with both of its Choose One effects combined every time if you're willing to be patient.

      That's all of today's scheduled card reveals - the next one is slated for Sunday at 6.00 AM BST, although it's always possible that we get some surprise reveals in the interim. See you then!

      The Legendary Quest card for Paladin in Saviors of Uldum has been revealed by Spanish Youtuber Atlas (alongside an adorable 1-drop that will help you complete it).
       
      The Legendary Quest card for Paladin in Saviors of Uldum has been revealed by Spanish Youtuber Atlas (alongside an adorable 1-drop that will help you complete it).
      It's all about playing minions with Reborn, the new expansion keyword. Reborn Minions come back with 1 Health the first time they die, making them especially tough to get rid of (and great to copy with Emperor Wraps, the Quest reward.)
      Alongside Making Mummies we also got Murmy, a new 1 Mana 1/1 Murloc with Reborn.

       
      Seems like Paladin's identity in Saviors of Uldum is beginning to take shape: it's playing a lot of dudes with 1 Health, whether drawing them with Salhet's Pride, generating them with Sandwasp Queen, or resurrecting them with the Reborn keyword.
      Murmy has actually been teased already during a Reddit developer AMA. Asked if there were any cute cards forthcoming in Saviors of Uldum, designer Alec Dawson said:
      Alec Dawson (/u/HS_Alec)
      There are definitely a few in this expansion, especially if you like mummies! So there you have it. Murmy. Cute. In an undead, fish monster sort of way.
      (Also quite probably a terror in Murloc Shaman.)
      Watch the full reveal video below:

      A new Warlock card has been revealed by the Chinese streamer 瓦莉拉 (Valeera). It's the first of 51 Saviors of Uldum cards to be revealed at scheduled times by community figures and content creators.

      It's a new 2 Mana 2/1 Rare for Warlock. Here's Expired Merchant:

      This kind of targeted discard effect has been seen before on Shriek and Reckless Diretroll - it's a nice way of mitigating the randomness of the discard mechanic. In this case it can be used to duplicate one of your power cards. That could mean an extra copy of Mountain Giant, endless chains of Soulwardens and more.
      Pour one out for the Wild players though - one Bloodreaver Gul'dan was bad enough.
