Massive Copies of Minions Incoming - 2 Warrior Cards Revealed for Rise of Shadows

Recommended Posts

We have two more cards today and they're very similar, as both are Warrior cards that give you copies of minions from your deck and they both cost a whopping 10 to play! First off it's The Boom Reaver who gets a meaty body to go along with the copy it creates. It was revealed in a promotional email.

Then there's Dimensional Ripper, who was revealed by Alliestrasza earlier today and might actually be depicting the Boom Reaver in it's art as well? In any case it'll net you  two of anything from your deck, as long as it's a creature.

I think that this kind of cards doesn't work at 10 mana cost, because while they are clearly powerfull, they aren't enough impactfull. And while Rush can make you interact with the board, at 10 mana it can be only a removal and nothing more.

Big Priest do work well because his summons spell are way cheaper then this (2 mana resurrect, 5 mana Barnes, 4 mana discoverrect, 6 mana recruit a 5/5, 7 mana spellstone that summons 4 minions), while Big Druid works depending on ramp options. Warrior can't ramp, so they'll drop this cards at least at turn 10, so there is little reason to run this kind of spell instead of running big threat to summon without the needing to build your deck around a "big" theme.

 

If charge was still in the game, things would be different because this kind of cards would have combo value... But blizzard only loves burn, so nothing here.

So, simply speaking, both cards are insane as hell.

 

But, Sadly, dead man's hand's rotating out, but at least, since war got Dr.boom hero, the reaver can get rush along the other summoned minion as well!

A card has to do a LOT to redeem a 10-mana-price-tag. It sits dead in your hand for most of the game and requires your whole turn to play it.

With "Dimensional Ripper" I doubt that it is worth it...even if you get two really big guys like Ysera or Grommash Hellscream it only seems "okay".

"The Boom Reaver" on the other hand I have higher hopes for. The Mech-Interaction on Warrior is still present after the rotation. Also with Baku the Mooneater gone, Dr. Boom, Mad Genius will definitly become even more relevant.
