Saviors of Uldum: Three New Cards Revealed

Recommended Posts


Diseased Vulture, Neferset Ritualist and Anubisath Warbringer are the latest cards to be revealed from Saviors of Uldum.


Two new cards have been revealed on the Japanese website UDN, in addition to one which was shared by Blizzard ANZ overnight.

From UDN, we got Diseased Vulture and Neferset Ritualist:


Diseased Vulture has a similar condition to Duskbat and Nethersoul Buster, but arguably a greater payoff than either. It's also repeatable, rather than being a one-time effect - if you stick this card to the board or combine it with multiple self-damage effects like Spirit Bomb, it can get some major value.

Neferset Ritualist has solid stats for a 2-Mana Minion and an interesting effect reminiscent of Hozen Healer. Restoring Health to Minions isn't always the most useful effect in Hearthstone, but this card does a lot for its cost.

Priest already has good incentives to run Minions like Injured Blademaster and Damaged Stegotron which damage themselves thanks to their synergy with resurrect effects (including Psychopomp, a powerful new addition in Saviors of Uldum). It's possible that Neferset Ritualist could be played alongside these minions to restore them to their original stats, although as a 2/3 itself it's a poor addition to the pool of resurrect minions.

We also saw Anubisath Warbringer revealed by Blizzard ANZ on Twitter late last night.


It doesn't look like much on its own, but as an expensive Deathrattle minion it could have some utility alongside synergy cards like Coffin Crasher and the new Rogue Legendary, Anka, the Buried

Anubisath Warbringer was revealed with a short video that you really should go and see for yourself. It's a time lapse of the card being sculpted out of sand, and the craftsmanship on display is seriously impressive.

Check out our Saviors of Uldum hub for more info on the new expansion, plus every card revealed so far.

Diseased Vulture is pretty strong, a fine addition in any Zoo-ish deck and even a consideration in more control-oriented decks to force out answers.

Neferset Ritualist... Murder on wheels in arena, but constructed... Most decks want to either cheat big minions out or flood with sacrificial weenies. That leaves Priest, but a 2/3 is terrible in a ressurect deck... Myeah...

Anubisat Warbringer is just meh. Played for his full mana cost it's just too slow. In a Plot Twist Warlock deck to combo off Bertug and Dorian... maybe? As for the Anka - Necrium Vial combo people suggested, I don't buy it. You need to play that one exactly on curve to be efficient, and even then it's still two full mid-range turns where all you get on the board is a lousy 5/5 and 1/1 in the class that desperately needs tempo... Nah, bro', nah!
