Hakkar, the Soulflayer Reveal: Rastakhan's Rumble

Recommended Posts

The iconic final boss of Zul'Gurub is one of the neutral Legendaries of Rastakhan's Rumble and it seems slightly underwhelming.

The reveal was made by Forbes. There's also an interview with Dave Kosak and Liv Breeden on the card, as well as a video with its gameplay.

It's amazing how faithful this card is to the Corrupted Blood mechanic from World of Warcraft that led to an actual epidemic in the game - which even became a topic of study by the Centre for Disease Control. Hakkar definitely puts a timer on the match once his Deathrattle triggers and could be used to break Combo decks. However, the fact that it's a Deathrattle and not a Battlecry decreases its power and you still have to build a whole deck around it. Then again, a lot of people thought Mecha'thun wouldn't work when it was released and it has proven to be quite successful.

What do you think about this card? As a reminder, you can find anything related to Rastakhan's Rumble in our dedicated hub.

I’m struggling to think how you’d use it. Could be strong in a slower control deck against faster control/combo decks that rely on drawing their deck fast maybe? Still gotta get the deathrattle to trigger though.

Paladin could do some mean things with it in wild with bran and coldlight oracle after casting the spell that gives your hero immunity. Well, guess any class could do the same with violet illusionist too.

For sure, or destroy it with Skulking Geist.

shuffle rogue would love this , especially vs druid, they draw, and you dilute your deck with the 4 mana spell, so their chances of dying first is like 400 % higher !   thijs math btw ! although im thinking geist to  😃
