You need 9 mana and your opponent needs to have 12 health in minions on the board to pull that off, so it's not that unfair. You know, unlike certain other cards printed this year that do not require your opponent to have any specific board and can be done on like turn 5 or 6.
We haven't seen Tavish yet either, have we?
Now, Rune of the Archmage can cast Puzzle Box twice. But Puzzle Box can cast Rune of the Archmage ten times. Puzzle Box superior.
Presenting: the worst thing you can randomly roll in Rise of the Zombeasts.
The name comes straight from World of Warcraft. It's not meant to be a legendary.
The beast pool was updated from every expansion. You could see it back in the Rise of the Zombeasts tavern brawl. It's just that the influx of new beasts is fairly limited lately. Deathstalker Rexxar only uses Beasts that have an effect or have a keyword, not both. So things like Teacher's Pet, Venomous Scorpid, and even technically Circus Amalgam are out because they have an ability and an effect.
I think it's reasonable to assume they're hidden behind her hair. It's hard to tell, but I'm fairly certain you can see them on the hero powers.
Besides, not every girl has big, noticeable head tentacles.
Siamat works exactly like that with Brann. Also, the Bolner doesn't actually trigger Battlercies like Brann does, he recasts them. So, his effect is closer to Shudderwock. Also, Brilliant Macaw doesn't let you pick targets if you recast something like The Lurker Below, so this OTK flat-out doesn't work.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't Bolner choose randomly when he repeats Battlecries? So you may not get the fireball each time.
I mean, it's literally a landmark in Alterac Valley.
All of the "Lasts 3 turns" cards are named after AV subzones.
The Gul'dan one's pretty cool. Maybe I'm just a sucker for Fel Reavers, though.
Most liches are the resurrected skeletons of orc warlocks from the First and Second War, which is where their size and dental work comes from. Although, Kel'Thuzad was resurrected from his ashes and still looks like that, so I have no idea how it's supposed to work.
But I believe that is Tamsin. They foreshadowed that she was practicing necromancy in the last Book, and the hair matches hers in the trailer's end card art.
"Never fall back!" turning into "Hurry fall back!" got me. Well played, Blizz.
Regis had a pretty interesting idea recently. He said they should add ten new heroes, but keep the old ones as well. That way all the old thematic hero powers and treasures aren't removed from the game, but the meta is refreshed with a whole new set of them.
Frost spells don't necessarily have to Freeze. According to Dean Ayala, the reason Freeze Shaman was so laughable back in KotFT was the entire package was nerfed after the balance team realized that consistently freezing stuff was obnoxious to play against. I have a conspiracy theory that Thrall, Deathseer was a Freeze-based card at that point, given that card's theming and voicelines.
With Frost spells, they can just be regular spells with the Frost tag.
Drek'thar might be neutral (or tied into some other mechanic) considering he's the general for the Horde in Alterac Valley. We don't know anything about the set's mechanics yet. Maybe he'll be a Druid/Mage/Shaman/Warlock/Warrior card and Vanndar Stormpike will be a DH/Hunter/Paladin/Priest/Rogue card, or something like that.
First week of December, most likely. That's going off of every third expansion aside from LoE and Darkmoon, which were released in November.
The expansion announcement is typically at Blizzcon, which would be a week from now normally. Since there's no Blizzcon this year, it's not clear when the announcement will be exactly, but it should be soon.
The Stockades would make way more sense story-wise, considering Varden and Scabbs are escaping from there. I still hope it's that, otherwise the story's about to take a weird hard right.
Also I want a new Hogger card.
One of my all-time favourites brawls for sure. Little sad that we're going lax on the Halloween brawls. Hopefully next week we'll have Rise of the Zombeasts as per October tradition.
