Saviors of Uldum Legendary Card Reveal: Armagedillo

Recommended Posts

44448-two-new-cards-revealed-earthquake-

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.

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.

Check out our Saviors of Uldum hub for more info on the new expansion, plus all the latest card reveals.

2+2 to every TAUNT minion in your hand.  Guessing that's a typo since there's talk about few taunt warrior cards atm.    Too bad it's not a mech...the art makes it at least a cyborg?

Yep, thanks for spotting that - fixed. Don't think it's a cyborg, just a beast with some heavy artillery!

Well, it looks like this will be another half baked, incomplete warrior archetype that will sit next to dragon warrior, rush warrior and big warrior.

For a company that plans out their expansions many months in advance, it seems like Blizzard has a really short attention span when it comes to building new archetypes. Every class now has a handful of cards for several unfinished archetypes that never got enough support to build a viable deck. I think Blizzard should either focus on printing individually strong cards that don't require you to build your whole deck around them, or just print more support for past archetypes from past sets.

Discard Warlock is crying now, please stop hurting his feelings.

It's not just short attention span, Blizzard seems to have several archetypes that it keeps wanting to push, but either the concept itself is terrible (discard warlock doesn't work because losing random cards is always a -big- gamble) or they don't support it enough.    Taunt Warrior has been "around" for a long while now but it just doesn't work because of the lack of good taunts.    You have all the "reverse healing to damage" archetype stuff for priest that's never really taken off and at best supplemented other decks, the "demon tribe" warlock synergy that's never been strong enough, etc.
