Saronite Taskmaster Reveal: Rastakhan's Rumble

Recommended Posts

Saronite Taskmaster is a 1-mana 2/3 Neutral minion with a twist!

The card was revealed by Japanese site Famitsu:

Here is an image of the token this card spawns. A 1-mana 2/3 minion is always a force to be reckoned with, since it's difficult to forget how good Zombie Chow was. Saronite Taskmaster is an excellent turn 1 card for Control decks. It's not certain if aggro decks would want to include this card. It can also potentially work as a combo breaker for Big Priest and Mecha'thun decks.

What is your take on this card? Remember that you can check out the rest of the cards revealed from Rastakhan's Rumble in our expansion hub.

Seems like a reasonable play.  Anti-aggro tech has gotten a lot better over the years, so I am not entirely sure if it is as good as chow was, but if the meta has a lot of 2/2s or 1/2's in it, it will be amazing.

The Saronite Taskmaster will most likely see no play in Aggro decks, since it's stalling for the early game, preventing the ship damage.

I see much more value in this card towards a one turn kill combo for priest with either topsy turvy or innerfire, since in such a controlling combo deck you don't care that much in the early game if you need to play this to contest the early stages of the game.

So just be aware to not play this into their turn 4 (if they are on the coin) / 5, since fungalmancer would be quite devastating.

Also quite annoying for taunt druids to run into.

Seems good to me. You effectively heal your opponent for 3 rather than the 5 of zombie chow, but with the downside that it still does even if the enemy is at full health, and also giving them something they can potentially buff.

Odd Rogue will hate it so much they may even run it themselves. Zoo lock probably is less concerned given they have a one mana 3/2.
