Hello fellow Tavern Dwellers! It’s time for another Hearthstone post! As many of you know, the newest expansion has been announced. Rise of Shadows releases in its entirety on April 9th. It mainly focuses on the baddies of Warcraft, and I can’t wait to try it out. Although we still have 7 days left for its release, I will be going over some of my favorite new cards from the list that we have so far. Now, let’s have ourselves a tavern brawl!
- Dragon Speaker Type: Paladin Epic Minion Appearance: A epic looking paladin in golden armor. Mana Cost: 5 Attack: 3 Health: 5 Effect: Give all Dragons in your hand +3/+3
This card alone could make Dragon Paladin a viable deck. The huge stat boost to Dragons is absolutely insane, and I could definitely see some new strategies appearing out of this card. Plus, the stats aren’t terrible on a 5-cost minion.
- Walking Fountain Type: Shaman Neutral Minion Tribe: Elemental Appearance: A legless elemental with spiky hair and sharp teeth. Mana Cost: 8 Attack: 4 Health: 8 Effect: Lifesteal, Rush, Windfury
This is a very unique minion with some pretty awesome effects. It can attack twice the turn it’s summoned, and recovers 4 health to your hero each time it does so. Also, it has pretty high health, and can’t be taken down easily.
- Arch-Villain Rafaam Type: Warlock Legendary Minion Appearance: The supreme archeologist looking sinister and badass. Mana Cost: 7 Attack: 7 Health: 8 Effect: Taunt: Battlecry: Replace your hand and deck with Legendary minions
Jesus Christ, this minion is fucking awesome! It essentially is the Golden Monkey with better stats and a better effect. Replacing your entire deck with Legendary minions is a ton of fun in its own right, but now that Elise is out of Standard Format, people will be using this card religiously. I absolutely can’t wait to try this amazing card out in the new expansion. Also, the taunt effect is a very nice touch.
- Nozari Type: Paladin Legendary Minion Tribe: Dragon Appearance: The golden female dragon and co-leader of the Keepers of Time. Mana Cost: 10 Attack: 4 Health: 12 Effect: Battlecry: Restore both heroes full health.
Wow, this card is pretty incredible. A beefy dragon that almost restarts the game is a really nice idea, and I could see this being a very trolly mechanic. It has many synergies with many Paladin cards, and the heavy body, makes it hard to take down.
