Madame Lazul Reveal: Rise of Shadows

Recommended Posts

Ws6n4pd.jpg

The Fortune Teller and member of the League of E.V.I.L is a Legendary minion for Priest.

Madame Lazul was revealed by @PlayHearthstone on Twitter:

Even though her effect is slightly unoriginal and perhaps not worthy of an orange gem, it's quite flavourful for Madame Lazul to be able to see through your opponent's hand. She can fill Curious Glimmerroot's place quite well. On the other hand, Chameleos offered a bit more insight on the opponent's hand and it wasn't really played in any serious decks. Lazul is more versatile thanks to the Discover effect.

What's your take on this card?

Chameleos is only a card copy, it doesn't come with a minion on the board. Also, the fact that the card changes every turn adds a timing constraint. It may be the card you want but at a time you can't play it. Priest doesn't have enough synergy around playing cards from other classes or not coming directly from your deck, as Rogue and Mage do, respectively. That must be why it wasn't played.

In comparison, both Curious Glimmerroot and Madame Lazul are 2-in-1, you get an extra card and a minion on the board, with reasonable stats for the cost, similar to Blink Fox and Black Cat, which have both been heavily played. At a quick glance, Madam Lazul looks stronger to me, because it can't fail, and you get to choose one card among (up to) 3. This more than compensates for the missing 1 health in my opinion. If the upcoming expansion has more Priest cards on the same theme, they could combine nicely with Princess Talanji.

People do not seem to realize how big this is - With Madame Lazul as a Card AND A hero: It means we MAY get card versions of the Heroes we currently have in play. I was worried for so many years what heroes they will "miss out" on having as cards because they went with them as heroes instead. But this REALLY brightened up my day for that we one day may see the current heroes as cards too.

I like this card.  A lot.  Much better then glimmer root (which was a playable card, although often the worst card in the deck).  The best part is you get a lot of information about what is in their hand so you can make a very informed decision as to what you want to grab.  I actually think this is *better* then a 3 mana 3/2 battle cry: draw a card, by quite a large margin.

Solid card. On-curve against aggro it's a body to contest the board with that nabs another card to contest the board with, against slower decks you can go greedier and/or adapt you plan. This is what a Legendary should be, a card that is useful over the entire course of a game without being overpowered. I do agree it's absolutely unoriginal, though.

Glimmeroot -1 hp but you get a slightly better card since you chose from 3 instead of being 100% random you won't take some awful card like Deadly Poison. Will be in every priest deck until it rotates out not much to say about this.

Well they did exactly that with all 9 basic heroes in Knights of the Frozen Throne, so this isn't exactly new.

Ahh, I was sure he was added AFTER Kharazan as a hero - Just got me a bit up in joy there as I have always feared "What heroes that never will be cards because they are heroes instead" - I've always wanted to see a good thematic Gul'dan and Jaina card especially.

I know the DK's are a think as Smorod said up above this comment but as they still were heroes and not cards; It just didnt hold that same level of hype to me - Especially with how some of the hero cards like Gul'Dan and Rexxar are just a broken mess.

It's a very good card actually, if you get her in your opening hand you get great turn 3 (2 with coin) intel on what deck your opponent is running, and a decent card.     Later in the game you get a good feel for what cards they have in hand and how risky you can play (like if they have Shudderwok or Mechathun already if you want an extreme example, or if they simply have a way to kill your big card).

Aye I saw that during the stream yesterday - Got me even more hyped! Perhaps there is hope for the core Heroes to one day be cards as well.

      The recently buffed cards are featured in preconstruced decks in this week's Tavern Brawl.
      In "Rise of the Mech" you literally only have to click the Brawl button, since you get a random class with a premade deck. Decks are built around cards buffed in the last balance update.
      Unlike most Brawls, this one seems to be in Standard format.
      As always, you will get a Classic pack as a reward.

      The Adventure concludes and there are many rewards to reap for completing it, while you can also unlock Anomaly Mode.
      The Dalaran Heist concludes with its fifth and final chapter. Apart from getting the two remaining Heroes, you can also unlock Anomaly Mode once you are done with all chapters.
       You can purchase this new chapter as part of the $19.99 complete Dalaran Heist bundle. You can also grab The Underbelly, or other individual chapters, for $6.99 or 700 Gold by purchasing them in the in-game shop.
      This final week is special, since there are numerous rewards to get and you can also unlock Anomaly mode.
      Chapter 5 Details

      As if the Dalaran Heist hasn't proven long and repetitive enough, Chapter 5 will last even more. The twist for the Kirin Tor Citadel is that it has four extra bosses, therefore each run will have 12 encounters.
      The Heroes
      The last two remaining Heroes to be added are Warlock and Paladin.
      Tekahn is the Warlock Hero, having the following Hero Powers and starting decks available:

      Hero Powers
      Life Tap (2 mana) – Draw a card and take 2 damage. Pain Split (2 mana) – Take 2 damage. Deal 2 damage. The Pact (2 mana) – Take 2 damage. Summon a 2/2 Imp. Starting Decks
      Sacrificial – Self-damage + Deathrattles Seeker – Card generation Imp-ressive – Demons Karl/George is the Paladin Hero. He seems to be suffering from insomnia! Here are his Hero Powers and starting decks:

      Hero Powers
      Reinforce (2 mana) – Summon a 1/1 Silver Hand Recruit. Backup (2 mana) – Add three 1/1 Silver Hand Recruits to your hand. Boon of Light (2 mana) – Give a friendly minion Divine Shield. Starting Decks
      Old Hero – Divine Shield cards Adventure – Buffs! Holy Flames – Secrets + Dragons. Rewards
      There are many more rewards this time, since these are the final rewards you will get from the Dalaran Heist. By beating five bosses in Chapter 5 you will receive three Rise of Shadows card packs.
      If you've completed all Chapters at least once, you will also get a Golden Classic pack and Golden Zayle, Shadow Cloak (if you didn't prepurchase or haven't crafted him already). We've covered this new Legendary card, which works like Whizbang the Wonderful, in this article.
      Finishing all five chapters on Normal gives you the Prize of Shadows card back.

      Finishing all five chapters on Heroic gives you the Got Away with It! card back.

      Anomaly Mode
      We aren't done, though! After unlocking all five chapters, Anomaly mode becomes available. Anomaly mode adds another random effect that persists through the run to a chapter you've begun.
      There are 18 modifiers and we know 16 of them:
      Modifier Description Arcane All spells cost 2 less Crying All Battlecries Trigger Twice Dragon Soul When a player casts 3 spells in a turn, that player summons a 5/5 dragon Fishy Murlocs occasionally join the battle Glittering Gain a Treasure after playing high-cost cards Growing Minions gain +1/+1 at the end of their owner's turn Gorged Both players start with two extra cards and Mana Crystals Hallucinating Both players start with 10 Hallucinations in their deck Infused Summoning minions will give them Taunt, Divine Shield, Rush, or Windfury at random Nesting When a minion is played, it gains "Battlecry: Summon a 1/1 copy of this minion" Ogreish All minions have a 50% chance to attack the wrong enemy Rattling All Deathrattles trigger twice Reductive At the end of each player's turn, reduce the cost of cards in their hand by 1 Refreshing At the end of each player's turn, the player draw until they have 5 cards in hand. Summons After a spell is cast, summon a minion of the same cost. Wild Magic All spells cast an additional time (Targets chosen randomly) Don't forget to check out our Dalaran Heist guide, which should be properly finished really soon!

      A Q&A took place in the Russian official forums and some interesting tidbits of information were revealed, like Vanish being a candidate for the Hall of Fame.
      u/mawilek has kindly translated and summarised the most important points from this Q&A. In short, Trolden (who is also a Community Manager for Russia) requested some questions from the community and he posted the answers the day before yesterday.
      Here is what you need to know:
      Vanish is a HoF candidate. That's still not final, but they are even thinking to move Vanish to the Hall of Fame before the rotation in April.
      There are no plans to move Toki, Time-Tinker or Whizbang the Wonderful back to standard after rotation. But they will continue experimenting with this kind of things.
      Zayle, Shadow Cloak's decks are to be reviewed only once after rotation and maybe in case of significant nerfs (you can find our extensive article on Zayle here)
      26 epics in RoS was an error. They are planning to continue printing 27 epics per set in future
      Adventures: It takes about 2 weeks to create and balance Heroic mode after Normal mode is ready
      Still no information on future PVE formats, but they have huge plans for those and looking for any kind of feedback for The Dalaran Heist.
      They are probably going to keep the Dalaran Heist monetization model for future single player content. Of course, it will still be available to buy with Gold.
      For those of you who know Russian, you can find the entire Q&A (which probably contains more answers) here.
