No Surrender Reveal: Rise of Shadows

Recommended Posts

Rastakhan's Rumble didn't feature a Paladin Secret, but now we have a new one in Rise of Shadows!

No Surrender was unveiled by CarryPotter on YouTube. The video is in Spanish and contains gameplay of the new card.

A lot of people seem to think this card is really powerful, since it can compliment well an Aggro/Secret Paladin deck, it synergises with Bellringer Sentry and it keeps stuff like Secretkeeper alive. Personally, I am not too sold on it, since Aggro Paladin's cheap and small minions or your dudes will still die from most board clears even after the +2 health buff applies.

What do you, guys and gals, think?

Does the effect happen before the spell goes off?    Like will this protect a 1/1 from dying to consecrate/blizzard/whirlwind?    If so it's an amazing counter if there's any good secret synergy for weenie decks.

It should trigger before the opponent's spell is resolved. At the moment, I think that the only other cards using this wording are 3 Mage secrets (Counterspell, Spellbender and Mana Bind). At least for the first 2, the secret is clearly triggered before resolution (or lack thereof, as far as Counterspell is concerned), otherwise they couldn't work as designed. When the secret triggers after the condition is met, the wording is "after your opponent...", for example Mirror Entity.

To answer Zadina's question, this card looks reasonably good to me. Sure, it's not going to make Silver Hand Recruits survive Flamestrike, however it will help against many other popular AoE damage spells such as Arcane Explosion, Shooting Star, Blizzard, Fan of Knives, Explosive Trap, Consecration, Holy Nova, Beakered Lightning, Dread Infernal, Whirlwind and Dragonmaw Scorcher. That's a long list!

These are minions, so your opponent has to play a spell first, then drop these. If not, 1/1s still die.

About the card, I'm with Zadina on this one. This card might have been maybe good in Odd Paladin, but its not an option anymore, so, its probably not good.

This is true. On the other hand, players tend to play spells once in a while. So far, no Paladin secret would trigger on spells, unlike Mage secrets. With this new secret, this is a new trigger condition the opponent will have to plan with. I find it interesting.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying it is a marvelous card. But I think it is better than other Paladin secrets in Standard.

      We've seen a rotating set pool in Arena this year and now it's time to play with the idea on a Tavern Brawl setting. This week, you are required to build a deck using only certain expansions.
      Specifically, in this constructed Tavern Brawl you need to build a deck using cards only from the following sets: Whispers of the Old Gods, Mean Streets of Gadgetzan and Rastakhan's Rumble.
      With Gadgetzan in the mix, it's no surprise that Jade decks are already omnipresent in this Tavern Brawl; the ability to summon even larger men is just too good. C'Thun decks are also quite popular.
      If you miss cards from these expansions, you can use the auto-fill feature or just queue a deck of any size, with the game automatically filling the rest of your deck.
      As always, you will get a Classic pack after your first win.

      If you want to try Wild, there's a one-time bundle available that allows you to get 56 packs from Wild expansions.
      Toki's Wild Bundle contains 56 packs - 8 from each of the following Wild expansions: Goblins vs Gnomes, The Grand Tournament, Whispers of the Old Gods, Mean Streets of Gadgetzan, Journey to Un'Goro, Knights of the Frozen Throne and Kobolds & Catacombs.
      The Bundle costs 35 dollars/euros, with Blizzard claiming it's a "75%+ bonus value". You may purchase the bundle once per account only from the Blizzard Shop (not ingame). It can also be gifted.
      It will be available until July 1st.

      Mike Donais appeared at his daughter's stream yesterday and he answered a few questions about new cards, balance and the upcoming expansion.
      In case anyone is wondering, Mike's daugher is Melody Serafina, she is 22 years old and she is a Twitch streamer. Yesterday (which was Father's Day), she played the Dalaran Heist adventure with her father.
      u/imicekczech watched the stream and he was kind enough to provide bullet points with everything that Mike said. Below, I've categorised said bulletpoints under topics discussed:
      Balance & Cards
      New classic cards are going to be announced in few weeks. Big Priest is "still" being watched closely but nothing new. In the future we will see more cards that work like Reno Jackson and even maybe for other classes (not just Mage, Warlock, Priest). Mike was responsible for the Rockbiter Weapon nerf. We will see more buffs in the future, but they want to try something different than buffs and nerfs in the future too.  (We don't know what or when.) In the upcoming sets we will see a card that could make your Pogo-Hopper a 45/45 easily. We might see one hero card this year, just maybe. Sometimes they release a 4 mana 7/7 just for the memes. They already did a few cards like Shadowform and we might see some more of them in the next expansion. (Dinomancy, Lord Jaraxxus, Hero Cards, etc.) It´s quite possible that we will see Classic Cards buffs in the future. (It isn't that high on their list.) Next expansion
      RoS was about the bad guys, new expansions should be about other things? Mike thinks that the trailer and the theme for the next expansion is awesome and probably everyone will love it. Mike's favourite expansions are League of Explorers and Journey to Un'Goro. So, judging from what he said in the previous point and the other point about Reno cards making a return, a new LoE expansion looks quite possible (check out this clip as well) The story of Rafaam will continue with new expansions this year but it's not only about him. Dalaran Heist & Adventures
      Haro Setting-Sun is going to be nerfed next week.  It would be cool to allow golden cards in the adventure and Mike agreed. With the next expansion, we will see also a new adventure but its playstyle might be different. We will probably see the most popular Dalaran Heist playable characters as class skins. (At least one would be great, Mike said.) They have 2 lines fixed between bosses from Dalaran Heist (power level-wise) and if any is above or below the lines, they are establishing them accordingly. They tried to do an "infinity" mode for adventures, but it ended up being boring. (12+ bosses will probably never happen.) Future plans and ideas
      We will see more in-game shop skins for real money in the future. They are working on cosmetics. We will see a better deck copying feature and maybe even better deck sharing with your in-game friends. Mike said that special legendary card back with its expansion logo for every expansion would be a nice idea. Splitting expansions into 2 smaller expansions has been discussed, it would be good as things would change quickly. Random hero option is a good idea as random card back option already exists and it wouldn't be hard to implement that into the game. A lot of HS devs are playing MtG and they are maybe getting some ideas from it. Artwork & Animations
      Angry Chicken and Chicken arts aren't going to be updated ever because it would be distracting for the players. There are plans about changing animations for some classic cards in the future. From past statements, likely candidates could be Tirion Fordring and Edwin VanCleef. Giant Wasp doesn't look like really stealth minion with her pink "tentacles", that's because they had her art first and then they decided to give her a poisonous and stealth because she was the only meaningful card in the set that could have poisonous.

      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.
