The Fortune Teller Teaser for Year of the Dragon Expansions

Recommended Posts

6wUivmm.png

We have a teaser for the first 2019 Hearthstone expansion with the Fortune Teller from Whispers of the Old Gods returning with a cryptic message.

This is the first time we get a teaser video, before the announcement of an expansion and its release video. Here it is:

We've had our theories on the nature of the first Year of the Dragon expansion, but this teaser is quite perplexing. The fact that the Fortune Teller was present in the video for Whispers of the Old Gods may indicate that the first expansion may be Void related. However, she lifts up a card that depicts an eye, a clear hint towards the Kirin Tor, one of the most popular theories so far.

The Fortune Teller talks about assembling a team of bad guys and this has made people assume that perhaps all the new Legendary cards will feature well-known villains from the Warcraft universe. In the end of the teaser, we see a card depicting a scale; its one side (the one the scale is leaning to) contains candles, while the other is filled with gold. Whether it's a message about Kobolds & Catacombs or something completely unrelated, it is something really hard to decipher.

Lastly, some people have theorised that Scry may be a new upcoming Keyword, since it is mentioned in the trailer. The Scry keyword in Magic: The Gathering allows the player to look at the top card(s) of his/her deck, then place it/them on either the top or bottom of the deck.

What are your thoughts on this teaser?

I doubt it's old gods stuff again, we already have several cthuns, nzoth etc in game.    Void maybe but we don't have any "Wow" lore on them yet aside from the basic vague descriptions.    Once we get to fighting the Void Lords (and learn their names and individual motives and whatnot) in WoW then a hearthstone expansion might be much more likely.

Hey, here's a theory, what if this expension was faction themed ? (not exactly as in MSoG, but with very specific keywords).

For exemple rogues, druids and hunters could be "spies" (the fortuneteller speaks about "scry" and "spy"). Mecanics would be about seeing a card in the enemy hand or the top card of one's deck, with some secrets shenanigans.

Another faction would be "spellcasters"( because of the Dalaran and candles), gathering Mage, Demonist and Shaman (that would synergise with their spell related cards from RR). A rune mecanic would be awesome (could be a spell token, or would sit next to secrets and quests, giving next spell some extra effect).

That would leave Paladin, War and Priest in a "dragon" faction (since the whole year should be more or less dragon oriented). A mecanic could be about draconic flights.

Uncommon Patron

Eye (obviously Kirin-Tor) + Fortune Teller from WotG (possible connection to void) + 'assemble a team of bad guys'..

Guys, it seems we're getting Assault on Violet Hold, Ocean's 11 style.

That still sounds pretty much the same as MSoG, you just changed the classes per faction and different mechanics per faction. So I doubt they'll repeat exactly that again. Could be more towards 2 factions available to all classes where each faction has their own keyword(s) and synergise well with all other cards of the same faction, but the cards have a negative/negated effect when played with cards from the opposite faction (to avoid having cards of both factions in a single deck). That way all classes can choose between one of the two factions and build a deck around that faction's speciality.

Super cool idea, that would be awesome. I just hope it doesn't become the new Baku/Greymane omnipresent mechanic.

      EVIL Recruiter, Riftcleaver and Desert Obelisk are the latest cards to be revealed from Saviors of Uldum.
       
      German Youtuber Thanh has just posted his card reveal for Saviors of Uldum: EVIL Recruiter! Two other cards were also revealed last night, one on the Japanese website Gamewatch and one on Reddit.

      EVIL Recruiter is Thanh's reveal - it's the Lackey synergy card for Warlock that was hinted at back when Weaponized Wasp was released. It's a lot of stats for not a lot of Mana, so it seems like a shoe-in for Zoolock. Check out the full German reveal video below:
      Riftcleaver is another addition to Warlock, revealed by Gamewatch. It's a hard removal option which calls to mind Vilespine Slayer, Omega Devastator and the Death Knight token spell Obliterate. All of those cards were and are extremely strong, so it's in good company. Its power comes at a hefty price though, especially if you're using it to destroy massive Minions like Mountain Giant.
      Desert Obelisk is the last card we have to share with you this morning. It asks you to complete the small puzzle of getting three copies onto the board if you want to make use of it. Achieve this, and it will start eating away at your opponent's board and Health total fairly rapidly. It seems a little steeply costed at 5 Mana, but it's a fun deck-building challenge.
      The honour of revealing Desert Obelisk went to /u/Scarlas, who was the first to solve a treasure trail left by /u/SecretsOfUldum. Here's how he did it:

      Simple, right?

      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:
