Rise of the Mech Buffs 18 Boomsday Project Cards

Recommended Posts

There's some unprecedented changes coming to Hearthstone with the Rise of the Mech update on June 3rd, and we're getting the first card buffs ever to happen in the game! There's also a free legendary for logging in during the event, but the big news are the buffs to 18 cards from the Boomsday Project, 2 from each class.

Most of these weren't really played, and with the buffs it seems Pogo-Hopper and Security Rover look worrisome, maybe too good. Dr. Boom Mad Genius was already a card people were complaining about being OP, and it's going to be even better now with all these buffs.

But let's take a look at the exact details:

Blastmaster Boom is headed back to the drawing board to upgrade his arsenal and perfect some of his pet projects. Check out what’s coming to the Tavern during the Rise of the Mech event, including a brand new Legendary Mech, SN1P-SN4P!

Behold Your New Mechanical Overlord!

Log in to the Rise of the Mech event by anytime between June 3 and July 1 and earn a golden copy of the new neutral Legendary Mech, SN1P-SN4P! Crash this clawed clunker into another Mech to build a behemoth of a bot, then do it again!

Missed the event? You can craft a normal SN1P-SN4P for the usual cost of 1600 Dust.

  • Important Note: SN1P-SN4P will be considered part of the The Boomsday Project and will rotate with that set. Note, however that SN1P-SN4P will not drop from The Boomsday Project card packs. Golden SN1P-SN4P will only be obtainable as part of the Rise of the Mech event, and the normal SN1P-SN4P can only be crafted with dust.

Card Changes:

The twisted tinkerer Blastmaster Boom has been busy in the lab cooking up buffs to cards from every class! These changes are permanent, and the cards will keep their updated stats after The Boomsday Project rotates out of Standard next year. For some context and insight into why we’re updating these cards, here’s a comment from the design team:

For this update, we decided to take two cards from The Boomsday Project from each class and give them a slight power boost. We think all the cards we chose can lead to fun and interesting experiences, and our aim for these changes is to encourage you to think differently about how you’re currently building decks. We’re hoping that some of these cards will see consistent play in the current rotation, and even inspire completely new decks without having a lasting negative impact on their respective classes. If the goal of a balance update is to address metagame outliers, then the goal of something like the Rise of the Mech update is to inspire some fun, new ideas. We look forward to hearing your feedback!

Our Next Arena Season will be Electrifying!

Blastmaster Boom needs more test subjects, and what better place to find them than the Arena? Starting with the Rise of the Mech update on June 3, the available cards in Arena drafts will be rotating to the following explosively exciting sets:

  • Classic
  • Basic
  • Goblins vs. Gnomes
  • The Grand Tournament
  • Karazhan
  • The Boomsday Project
  • Rise of Shadows

The Warrior buffs have me a bit worried... both are buffs to Dr. Boom and Omega Assembly, which seem like the last cards that need a buff right now.

I love gloop sprayer buff, I think that now that druid's ramp has been nerfed into oblivion, lots of high drop druid minion can get a discount.
And notice that now the melon will tutor both this card and the healing 8 mana legendary 🙂
I still miss Aviana 😞

For the opening post, pogo-hopper isn't that better at 1 mana less. The card was a pseudo jade idol game winner against control decks, and in his role, costing 1 or 2 doesn't change the fact that this deck, to be good, needs a better shell, as rogue still miss healing and drawing to build a good anti-control jadelike deck.

I like the idea in general, and I admit I did not see it coming 😄 It is nice to see Blizzard acknowledge that some of their cards were weak and try to bring more variety to the game. On the other hand it is questionable to do it 10 months after these cards were originally released and 6 months after players presumably stopped buying The Boomsday Project card packs. Players in need for dust may have disenchanted these cards long ago if they didn't play them. I'm glad I keep all my cards.

When a card is nerfed, we are allowed to disenchant it for full dust value. Now that they are upgrading cards for the first time, maybe they should let us craft these cards at a discounted price? Just kidding.

About the card selection, in general it makes sense, but I have my doubts on Crystology, which I think was already considered pretty strong and saw reasonable play. To a lesser degree, Mulchmuncher and Thunderhead were played in a number of decks, even if these decks are no longer in the meta. The other 15 cards were indeed not being played much if at all, so good call.

However I share Monlyth's concerns about the 2 Warrior cards. Even if these cards were not included in many decks directly, improving the global pool of Warrior mechs is really not what we want to see at the moment. Unless they plan to send Dr. Boom, Mad Genius to the Hall of Fame at the end of the event. I know... Please don't wake me up! 😉

Oh my lord, I am so happy that Pogo-Hopper is getting this buff! I've been grinding the deck for some time now with the introduction of Tak Nozwhisker and Togwaggle's Scheme that did make the deck a bit more viable (very hard to play still) but I think with this nerf it could get even better to be honest.
Dreaded about the warrior buffs though, i thought Security Rover and Beryllium Nullifier were already pretty strong.
The Dr. Morrigan buff is pretty neat too, with warlock Plot Twist oriented decks it became a bit more viable but I was never really convinced of it. 

Glad to see they went buffing instead of nerffing though, excited to see how it turns out 🙂

      Watch the Masters Tour stop at Las Vegas this weekend and earn free Rise of Shadows and Classic packs via Twitch Drops.
      The tournament will take place between June 14 - 16.
      Here's how Twitch Drops work and what you need to do to earn free packs:
      Blizzard Entertainment
      What It Is
      If you watch 3 hours of Masters Tour Las Vegas (consecutive or non-consecutive) on any of our official channels during the designated timeframes listed below, you will be granted a Rise of Shadows card pack. Keep watching for a total of 6 hours and you’ll be granted another Rise of Shadows pack! On top of that, 1,500 lucky eligible viewers will be randomly rewarded with Classic card packs every hour.
      These rewards can be earned during the following times:
      June 14: 9am–8pm PT June 15: 9am–8pm PT June 16: 9am–8pm PT Eligible channels:
      PlayHearthstone PlayHearthstoneFR PlayHearthstoneRU HearthstoneZHTW PlayHearthstoneKR PlayHearthstoneJP How it Works
      Before you can receive rewards, you’ll need to link your Twitch.tv and Blizzard Battle.net accounts. Here’s how:
      Log in or create an account on Twitch.tv. Navigate to the Settings menu by clicking your account name in the top-right corner of the home screen. Navigate to the Connections tab of the Settings menu. Find the Battle.net section, then follow the instructions after selecting a region and clicking Connect. When connecting accounts, be sure that you’re currently logged into the Blizzard account on which you’d like to receive your rewards. (source)
      Blizzard has also posted a viewer's guide for the Masters Tour Las Vegas, which you can find here.

      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.
