The Witch Teaser

Recommended Posts


One more teaser for the upcoming expansion (?) is out, with the announcement of the expansion itself probably coming within this week.

So, it turns out we were wrong about our Magatha Grimtotem prediction, as the next villain that the Fortune Teller calls is the more obvious choice of Hagatha from The Witchwood.

The Fortune Teller hints at one last villain to be called and it is definitely going to be Dr. Boom! We therefore have bad guys from all recent expansions, apart from Rastakhan's Rumble who didn't really feature a villain (apart from Rexxar on ladder). It is interesting how two of these villains - Hagatha the Witch and Dr. Boom, Mad Genius - are hero cards that will still be around in Standard. It's hard to see two Hagathas and especially a third iteration of Dr. Boom being playable cards, so perhaps these teasers are indeed aimed at the single player content or just the general lore of the Year of the Dragon.

Another thing we should notice is that even though the Fortune Teller clearly says that Dr. Boom is the last she is going to call, she still holds a fifth unrevealed card. Most people think that the last card will be the player, who will incarnate a villain in the upcoming expansion. After all, today marks Hearthstone's 5th anniversary and five bad guys seem much more appropriate.

The pattern looks clear to me. King Togwaggle was one of the possible final bosses of Kobolds and Catacombs 's Dungeon Run solo content. Hagatha the Witch was the final boss of The Witchwood's Monster Hunt solo content. And Dr. Boom was the final boss of The Boomsday Project's solo puzzles.

Therefore I very much doubt that the last card will be the player. Most likely, the last card will be another villain boss, which appeared after The Boomsday Project. So, either one from Rumble Run (but there is no "final" boss there, so it's not clear which one that would be; Zul'jin would be the most likely, as he also is a hero card, same as Hagatha and Dr. Boom) or from the upcoming expansion. King Togwaggle was a card too, albeit not a playable hero card.

The fortune teller is revealing 5 cards, and there will be 5 chapters in the upcoming solo adventure. So my take is that each character revealed in the teaser will be the player's opponent in one chapter of the solo adventure.

I'm just not too sure what to do with the fortune teller herself. I'm not playing Hearthstone for too long, but I can't remember any fortune teller character card. So she would be new in the game. She could be the (presumably easy) opponent of the 1st chapter. Or maybe she will be the really bad villain from the new expansion, and the (presumably hard) opponent of the last chapter of the solo adventure. After all, there is no guarantee that the order in which she reveals the cards is meaningful. She claims that she has been called by someone else, but after all, she is the one telling the story, so she might as well be the brain behind the evil plan. A la The Usual Suspects.

      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.)
