Hello fellow Tavern Dwellers! It’s time for another Hearthstone post! The newest expansion is coming out August 6th, and the new cards look absolutely incredible. As of now, 47 out of the 135 cards have been released, and I definitely have some favorites. Expect a much more thorough review when the expansion comes out. Now, let’s have ourselves a friendly brawl!
- BEEEES!!! Type: Druid Common Spell Mana Cost: 3 Appearance: A goblin about to be devoured by a massive swarm of bees. Effect: Choose a minion. Summon four 1/1 bees that attack it.
First of all, I love the Wicker Man reference of this card. Second, the effect is super unique, and can lead to many wonderful combos. If you combine this card with Knife Juggler or Addled Grizzly, chaos ensues, and your opponent will never see it coming.
- Wild Bloodstinger Type: Hunter Epic Minion Tribe: Beast Mana Cost: 6 Attack: 6 Health: 9 Effect: Battlecry: Summon a minion from your opponent’s hand. Attack it. Appearance: A giant crab-like beast with huge claws.
Jesus Christ! This card is absolutely amazing! Its stats are extremely good, and its effect has been done before. The ability to disrupt a combo piece by attacking it before it can even be played is insane, and I can see whole decks being built around this mechanic.
- EVIL Recruiter Type: Warlock Common Minion Mana Cost: 3 Appearance: A blonde-haired elf with evil arcane power. Attack: 3 Health: 3 Effect: Battlecry: Destroy a friendly Lackey to summon a 5/5 demon.
This card has some much value for 3 mana, and the effect is really close to being broken. You essentially get a 3 cost 8/8, and the combos with it are immense.
