Three New Saviors of Uldum Cards Revealed

Recommended Posts

Brazen Zealot, Sandwasp Queen and Salhet's Pride make up a new early-game package for Paladin in Saviors of Uldum.

 

Where's Steward of Darkshire when you need her?

That was our first thought on seeing these three new Paladin cards, above, revealed during Hearthstone Grandmasters on Twitch: Brazen Zealot, Sandwasp Queen and Salhet's Pride.

Paladin has been struggling with early-game in Standard recently, unable to make good use of options like Cathedral Gargoyle and Mysterious Blade, but this trio of 1-Health Minions might help shore up that weakness. If they aren't immediately removed by opposing Hero Powers, that is.

These reveals mark the last day of Hearthstone Grandmasters Season 1, as the highest-scoring players from Europe and the Americas do battle one last time to secure their place at the Hearthstone Global Finals at Blizzcon. Korean player Surrender won the spot for the Asia-Pacific region earlier this morning.

Check out our Saviors of Uldum hub to catch up on all the latest card reveals and new mechanics.

Here's the Sandwasp token generated by Sandwasp Queen:

Well, even if these guys are immediately removed by enemy hero powers, you're forcing your opponent to spend 2 Mana instead of playing on curve. I hope Paladin makes a comeback; it's my favorite class for playing midrange.

Slahet's Pride + Untamed Beastmaster you draw 2 5/3 instead of 3/1s

Only if your 1-health minions are all beasts. This will put some restrictions to how you build your deck, excluding Brazen Zealot but also the popular Argent Squire as well as Mecharoo. Additionally it will be difficult to keep Salhet's Pride alive until you put the Beastmaster in play. If you put Beastmaster in play first, he will be your opponent's primary target and may be gone before you can kick in your combo. So all in all it seems pretty difficult to setup unless you build your whole deck specifically for it.

If Zealot's text says 'health' instead of 'attack', it would be a nice addition to any token-like strategy paladin has. Other cards support that too.

      Blizzard released the 17.2.2 client patch for Hearthstone to fix a bug related to the closed shop that occurred due to a missing runtime dependency.
      (Source)
      We’re currently in the process of deploying a 17.2.2 client patch that will address the following items:
      Fixed a bug that would cause a crash on mobile when clicking the eye to see who is spectating. Fixed a few various issues that would lock the game state when playing certain cards from hand. Fixed a bug where some players in Europe were only given the option of Warrior as their free deck after graduating the new player ranks. Fixed a bug where the shop would be closed when launching Hearthstone due to a missing runtime dependency. If the shop is still closed after updating to 17.2.2, try swapping to another region on the launcher and swapping back before opening Hearthstone again.
      The incorrect Mana display bug for mobile users will be fixed in the next update.

      Any updates on when the incorrect mana bug for mobile players will be fixed?
      Hey! This will be fixed in our next major update.

      A new blog post has been released, detailing a dozen card changes coming to the game on Monday 18th of May.
      Shaman is getting some much needed help, since three of its cards will be buffed - although it is debatable if these buffs will be enough to move the class out of the bottom.
      As far as the nerfs are concerned, two more Demon Hunter cards (who would have thought?) are getting toned down. Scavenger's Ingenuity, Shadowjeweler Hanar, Blackjack Stunner, Imprisoned Scrap Imp, Bloodboil Brute, Bloodsworn Mercenary are also getting tweaked.
      Nerfed cards will be eligible for a refund until June 1st.
      The patch also brings a bug fix for Ethereal Conjurer, which was causing the game to lock by not offering any Discover options. 
      Don't forget you can grab a free Nemsy until May 19, as part of Patch 17.2.0.
