New Saviors of Uldum Card Revealed: Plague of Madness

Recommended Posts

The Rogue Plague has been unveiled on Twitter by the official Hearthstone account.

This reveal was made as part of the FIRE FEST-E.V.I.L. community challenge. We are already 25% on the way of beating 25 million bosses in the special Tavern Brawls; this means that already 6.250.000 bosses have been defeated in this week's Tavern Brawl, which is insane!

Here is the revealed card:

You might be thinking how is this a Plague card, since this kind of cards is supposed to affect all minions on the board. Apparently, according to an answer given in the recent Reddit AMA, this specific card was changed during the final design stage "as a result of the [Rogue] Class Identity being solidified".

Trash card like Weapons Project a good old Acidic Swamp Ooze is vastly superior as weapon removal and if unused is still a good body if nothing else, and considering you give a huge weapon for free to the enemy with this one if you don't remove the one you gave them you lose anyway the game.

I really hoped they not print such trash card again but here we are with the Millhouse Manastorm of this expansion.

And if you don't draw Harrison Jones you have 1 dead card that you can't use considering Harrison Jones is 1 out of 30 cards in your deck you end with 2 dead cards in the deck that you can't use until you have both in hand... for what? For putting a removal that damage your own face and giving an extremely detrimental effect in addition.

Weapon project is plain horrible and this is even more since is even more detrimental... giving such weapon to a priest is like conceding.

Giving something to the opponent is always a bad idea otherwise Lorewalker Cho would be a great card and Temporus would be played by someone on the face of earth, but we all know that is not the case.

I don't like this card either but you have to admit that it is being played. It was even in Hunterace's WC deck back in April and he won the event.

The hidden value of Weapons Project is that you can make a smarter use of your weapon than your opponent will, because you know if and when you'll play the second copy while your opponent has no idea. So your opponent basically has to use his/her 3 attacks as soon as possible if they don't want to lose any. If you don't have any minion that's worth attacking with a weapon, the attacks may end up in your face, which is generally the least efficient use of a weapon. It will be different with Plague of Madness though, as you'd almost always rather kill even a small minion with your weapon than attack face, unless you play super-aggro.

Giving something to the opponent is pretty much the base of Bomb Warrior 😉 SCNR.

I've read this statement many times about various weapon removal cards. In practice however I see very few Acidic Swamp Ooze being played. One reason is that there aren't that many decks which use weapons. Another reason is that a 3/2 body  for 2 mana is only good at turn 2, and it is unlikely that you have it in your hand at turn 2 **and** the opponent has played a good weapon worth destroying right before **and** has not used it yet. So in practice you'll either destroy half of a *filtered* weapon early in the game, and have a wondeful Bloodfen Raptor on board, or you'll keep your Ooze in hand for half of the game, destroy half of a good weapon and get a meaningless minion (at that point of the game) on board. Nothing thrilling.

Plague of Madness makes sense if you have a lot of small minions and you expect your opponent to have few large minions with a lot of health. In the Specialist tournament format, I can see it being a tech card in one of the alternative decks. Whether it will see play beyond that will depend on which other weapon-related cards will be part of Saviors of Uldum.

And priest is supposed to what exactly? Weapons Project is an okay card, which sees play in Control Warrior and rarely Bomb Warror lists. So, This might see play too. It is not meta-breaking or anything of that sort of course, but it is still a good card.

      A new Legendary Warrior Minion has been revealed, marking the defeat of 25 million bosses in the Blackrock Crash Tavern Brawl.
       
      The dust has barely settled after the Blackrock Crash Part 1, but the Hearthstone player base has already smashed through 25 million Tavern Brawl bosses and earned the fourth and final FIRE FEST-E.V.I.L. card reveal. Meet the new Warrior Legendary, Armagedillo.

      It's a 6 mana 4/7 Beast with Taunt that gives +2/2 to every Taunt Minion in your hand at the end of your turn. It's reminiscent of Grimy Gadgeteer and Bolster - neither of which were played very often. Still, even under-appreciated mechanics like hand-buffing can be powerful on the right card.
      There aren't many great Taunt Minions in Warrior's arsenal right now, so this might be a sign that we can expect to see some in Saviors of Uldum.
      World of Warcraft players may recognize Armagedillo as a rare beast that spawns in the Uldum desert. It drops its tail as an item, which can be used as a mace. This one appears to have been kitted out with some serious ordnance by Blastmaster Boom.

      Arch-Villain Rafaam joins the fray this week as the Blackrock Crash continues.
       
      The second week of the Blackrock Crash has kicked off today, continuing the FIRE FEST-E.V.I.L. celebrations. It's a Dungeon Run-style Tavern Brawl: pick a member of the League of E.V.I.L. to play as and fight through a gauntlet of eight bosses, building your deck as you go.
      It's broadly the same as Part 1, but this time Arch-Villain Rafaam joins the fray as a playable hero. Nice of him to lend a hand and all, but I think we've got this - Hearthstone players have already defeated 25 million Blackrock Crash bosses.
      The Big Bad himself is pretty powerful, as you might expect. His starting deck is decent and includes two amazing treasures in Master Scheme and Gloves of Mugging. His Hero Power, Arch-Villainy, steals a card from your opponents deck then, if it's a Minion, puts it onto the board immediately.
      As before, beat the first four bosses of the Brawl to earn a Saviors of Uldum pack to open when the next expansion releases. Beat all eight with Rafaam and you'll earn a Golden copy of Rafaam's Scheme. Perfect for discounting your Golden Jumbo Imp.

      (Times pictured are in BST)
      The full schedule of community card reveals for Saviors of Uldum has been added to the Hearthstone website.
      It's become standard during expansion buildups for Blizzard to give a few cards to popular content creators to share, and Saviors of Uldum will be continuing the tradition.
      The schedule includes a total of 51 cards to be revealed by various sources from across the Hearthstone community - you can click through a card to find out where it will be revealed. The first one will be shown on the Chinese streaming platform Huya on July 19th; the first English language card reveal looks to be on Firebat's Youtube channel on the same day.
      Alongside reveal times, we get to see snippets of artwork for the new cards, so let the speculation begin. (Is that Heistbaron Togwaggle in the artwork of the final card to be revealed?)
      In Rise of Shadows, streamers received their cards locked inside fiendish puzzle boxes. This resulted in some memorable solutions. Here's hoping we have more shenanigans to look forward to.
      Check out our Saviors of Uldum hub for more information on the expansion and every card revealed thus far.

      The Plague card for Shaman has been revealed on Twitter, the third of four cards to be revealed as rewards for the FIRE FEST-E.V.I.L. community challenge.
       
      The Plague card for Shaman has been revealed by the Hearthstone Twitter account: Plague of Murlocs!

      This is the third card revealed as part of the FIRE FEST-E.V.I.L. community challenge. That means that in just five days, the Hearthstone playerbase has defeated around 19 millionBlackrock Crash bosses. Give yourselves a collective pat on the back. Don't stop just yet though; a fourth and final card will be revealed at 25 million boss wins (and this last one will be a Legendary).
      Plague of Murlocs itself is a pretty powerful-looking card. Shaman can't answer Mountain Giant + Conjurer's Calling with any real consistency right now, so this seems like a welcome answer - although it won't do much against opponents who are playing, well, Murloc Shaman. It could even be a buff to your own board in a pinch, since random Murlocs are probably better than Totems and 1/1s.
      Check out our Saviors of Uldum Hub to catch up on this weekend's other new card reveals, including yesterday's trio of 1-Health Paladin Minions.
