Hearthstone 4-Mana Minions

19 posts in this topic

You place evil heckler in a tier below lost tall strider...this makes no sense to me. one is a 4 mana 5/4 and the other is 4 mana 5/4 with taunt clearly an awesome deal. the rule of thumb about taunt minions having more health than attack is all well and dandy but not when the cost is this efficient. I run evil hecklers over senjin shield masters on most occasions, i prefer the high attack also the 5 attack forces players to deal with it.

About Old Murk-Eye. Contrary to other cards, it is not specified how to obtain the card.

Also, perhaps the most relevant part of this post, you talk about how, despite Shaman having cards to support Murlocs, Warlock continues to be the class to play this card consistently. This isn't true anymore with Everyfin is Awesome. The article doesn't take Paladin into account at all even though we now have a Legendary OTK Paladin Deck. I know LoE just came out, just trying to help.

You can get him by owning all the murlocs from classic packs.

Yes, Paladin and Warlock are currently the most used murloc decks. Murloc Shaman is still not a thing.

I saw some incredible board swing to Everyfin is Awesome, but okay. My comment was more about improving the card's description than obtaining information from the forum, but thanks anyway.

About Dread Corsair. The description still mention it synergizing with Warsong Commander. Warsong Commander buffs charge minions, Dread Corsair doesn't have charge.

Is it in a specific spreadsheet? The one I have opened have both of them on the same tier (ie. Tier 4).

IS this card still available? I don't see a way to craft it anymore.

Hi, what card are you talking about? This topic is for every 4-cost neutral card in game, and you will need to specify which card you mean.

is this not the comments section for keening banshee?

i dont know why the description is saying that this 
card is good in arena.
ive used it twice and it was not good.

i ran out of cards. and yes the stats are good
but its not good if i cant play any cards. and
all my opponent has to do is ignore the minion.
or use a low attack taunt.

useless card for my play style.
maybe it might work in other decks
but they have to be pretty specific decks.

It is a difficult card to use properly. Sometimes, when you are behind, it is wiser not to play it. However, if it is played on curve, it can contest the board, and you can almost always afford to lose 3 or 6 cards from your deck when it is offset by dominating the board. If your opponent ignores it, you can either deliver a massive amount of damage to his face, or trade it off on your own terms, ultimately yielding huge value.

thank you for the feedback.

im officially going to avoid this card.

i tried it for the third time today.

i really wanted to give it a chance to work.
but i feel with my play style its just not a card
i can use properly.
my opponent pretty much ignored it and
went face.
i would have to be ridiculously ahead to play this.
i definitely think it would be a for sure win if i was
ahead.
but i feel it gets in the way of my deck synergy.
im a huge fan of huge statted minions.
im a huge fan of getting decent stats for
my mana cost.
i just have a hard time putting a deck together.
i focus on trying to get individual value for the card
but overall my decks are substandard.
its almost like i need to be able to predict what my 
deck will look like without having built it.

i learned about decks with the icy veins basic decks.
so im a huge fan getting stat value.
idk it feels like theres more to arena than that though.

Yes, it is a card that can be hard to use efficiently, but when you are able to do exactly that, you will find that the card offers huge boost in tempo (as it can trade into 4/5s and 4/4s without dying) and provides you with nice value basically for free, though is not really a good draw in the late game.

That's a skill that comes with experience, being able to see the best card choices through synergy rather than through the value of the card in vacuum. The more you play arena, the better you will get at drafting.

      A Legendary Hunter minion and an Epic Priest spell were revealed earlier on an Instagram story by PlayHearthstone.
      Oblivitron is a Legendary minion for Hunter:

      Lazul's Scheme is an interesting spell for Priest:

      As expected, Hagatha is a Shaman Legendary minion and she has a very versatile effect.
      The card was revealed by @PlayHearthstone on Twitter:
      Swampqueen Hagatha is one of these cases where the cardbox is barely enough to fit the explanation for the whole card. "Teach it 2 Shaman spells" means that you will get the Discover option twice and the Horror (a tribeless 5/5 token minion) will cast them as a Battlecry. Note that if you Discover a targeted spell, you can choose who to target with it - it's not random. According to Peter Whalen, the first choice is random but the second will offer only non-targetable spells (like Bloodlust or Chain Lightning) if your first choice was a targeted spell.
      Now that we are done with the explanation of the card, we can try and guesstimate how good it's going to be. Even though it offers a versatile Build-a-spell-like effect and it has a very interesting design, Swampqueen Hagatha is a huge tempo loss on turn 7 and requires a lot of setting-up and foresight. On the other hand, you can make up the tempo loss when you play the Horror and it also works greatly with Shudderwock.
      With Hagatha's Scheme and now the new Hagatha herself, it looks like we may be heading towards a Control Shaman era. What do you think?

      A new Scheme card for Rogue was revealed by @PlayHearthstone on Twitter.
      The card also confirms King Togwaggle as an upcoming Rogue Legendary minion.
      Now that we know that Scheme cards can update infintely, Togwaggle's Scheme looks absolutely insane. Pogo-Hopper decks have recently gained popularity and this new Scheme card fits perfectly into them. It can also fit into a Pirate Rogue deck. A lot of people have been comparing it to Jade Idol. The card is also pretty bonkers in Wild as well in the hands of Mill Rogue. With the right support, this card looks really powerful.
      What do you guys think about this first card reveal from Rise of Shadows?
    • By Zadina
      After the announcement of Rise of Shadows, Peter Whalen answered several questions on Twitter.
      A new piece of information is that there will be no Hero cards in the upcoming expansion. Rise of Shadows will follow the trend set from previous expansions, with 2 Legendary cards per class and 5 neutral Legendaries.
      One of the new mechanics of Rise of Shadows are Scheme cards that upgrade each turn they are in your hand. Apparently, they can upgrade forever! They also work with end-of-turn effects like Drakkari Enchanter (source). If you play Krag'wa, the Frog after you play Hagatha's Scheme, you will get a copy of the base form of the card (source).
      As far as Lackeys are concerned, these new token minions are all 1-mana 1/1 and they can only be generated from other cards.
      After clarifying that the smart deck builder doesn't support Wild for now, Peter Whalen launched into an extensive series of tweets about Hearthstone's Wild mode. The team is trying to keep Wild mode a place where everything is allowed, but at the same time they want to regulate stuff like Aviana, Naga Sea Witch, Yogg-Saron, Hope's End and Raza the Chained to maintain some sanity. No surprise there: Barnes has also been under the radar for a while. You can find the Twitter thread here.
      Lastly, there are no plans for now to give Wild cards as rewards, but this may change.

      New features include the Twinspell Keyword, Lackey minions and Scheme cards.
      The leaks were correct and the name of the new expansion is Rise of Shadows. It's a good mix of old and new as we see familiar faces and mechanics joined with new stuff like Twinspell, Lackeys and Schemes!
      Launching worldwide on April 9, Rise of Shadows is Hearthstone’s newest expansion, featuring 135 new cards and a host of game improvements which were revealed when the Year of the Dragon was announced. Dave Kosak is here to introduce us the new expansion.
      He hints about the next expansions of the Year of the Dragon bringing us to the "ancient depths".
      Rise of Shadows is about Rafaam gathering an evil gang, his target being the city of Dalaran. What is his purpose, though? It remains to be revealed in the rest of the year, since the Year of the Dragon expansions will all be interlinked.
      Hearthstone's nine classes are pitted against each other. On the one side, we have the League of Evil, whose leader is Arch-Villain Rafaam, a new Warlock Legendary minion. Warlocks are obviously part of the bad guys crew with Rogues, Shamans, Priests and Warriors joining them.

      The Defenders of Dalaran are the good guys and they are made up of Druids, Mages, Paladins and Hunters.


       
      The League of Evil doesn't operate on its own. After all, its masterminds are busy scheming and plotting; they need some muscle for the everyday bad-guy stuff, they need Lackeys! Lackeys are small 1/1 minions with strong Battlecries. Lackeys will not be limited to Rise of Shadows, as we will see them in the next expansions. They are token minions, only generated from other cards - they are not collectible.



      We mentioned "scheming" in the previous paragraph. Schemes are cards that grow in power the longer they stay in your hand. It hasn't been determined if there is a limit to how much these cards can grow.

      The new Keyword for this expansion is Twinspell. Once you cast a spell with this Keyword, a second copy of the spell is added to your hand. The copy doesn't have Twinspell.

      Older mechanics will also return. You might remember Forbidden cards from Whispers of the Old Gods. With The Fortune Teller being present in both WotOG and Rise of Shadows, it's only natural that we see Forbidden again.

      Speaking of The Fortune Teller, her actual name is Madame Lazul and she is an alternative Priest hero you can get from one of the pre-purchase options. There are three pre-purchase bundles for Rise of Shadows. The Standard Bundle costs 49.99 $/€ and contains 50 Rise of Shadows card packs, the Jewel of Lazul card back and a random RoS Legendary card. The 79.99 $/€ priced Bundle includes 80 packs, the Jewel of Lazul card back, the Madame Lazul Priest hero and a random Rise of Shadows Golden Legendary card. Lastly, the Shadow Bundle will be available only during the first week of the expansion: for 9.99 $/€ you can get 9 Rise of Shadows card packs and an Arena ticket.
      The solo Adventure content will be released a month after Rise of Shadows, so somewhere in May.
