New Cards with WotOG ( Slide 135)

  • Xaril, Poisoned Mind (4 mana – 3/2 minion, Battlecry and Deathrattle: Add a random Toxin card to your hand.)
  • Bloodthistle Toxin – 1 mana – Return a friendly minion to your hand. It costs (2) less.
  • Briarthorn Toxin – 1 mana – Give a minion +3 Attack.
  • Fadeleaf Toxin – 1 mana – Give a friendly minion Stealth until your next turn.
  • Firebloom Toxin – 1 mana – Deal 2 damage.
  • Kingsblood Toxin – 1 mana – Draw a card.
  • Hasn’t worked out too well so far. Lots of hope for it to work with the N’Zoth deck but it’s a bit slow for Miracle decks.
  • Blade of C’Thun (9 mana, 4/4 minion – Battlecry: Destroy a minion. Add its Attack and Health to C’Thun’s (whereever it is).
  • Combo with Brann Bronzebeard for x 2 buffs on C’Thun. Coin out early, then use Shadowstep or Shadowcaster for more value.
  • Shadowcaster (5 mana, 4/4 minion – Battlecry: Choose a friendly minion. Add a 1/1 copy to your hand that costs (1).
  • If you silence the 1/1 copy when it’s on the board, it returns to it’s original attack and health values but loses any copied effects.
  • Combo with Brann Bronzebeard and Shadowstep to get 2 Branns.
  • Thistle Tea (6 mana – Draw a card. Add 2 extra copies of it to your hand.)
  • Many say that it’s one of the best cards in the game. However, it’s very RNG based. You can’t easily plan for what the next card will be.
  • Undercity Huckster (2 mana, 2/2 minion – Deathrattle: Add a random class card to your hand (from your opponent’s class).
  • Can be a game changer card IF it pulls something useful. But again, RNG based.
  • Journey Below (1 mana, Discover a Deathrattle card).
  • Great combo enabler card and many remark on how frequently they get cards like Sylvannas and Xaril, Poisoned Mind.
  • Southsea Squidface (4 mana, 4/4 Pirate minion – Deathrattle: Give your weapon +2 Attack)
  • You can copy the effect with Unearthed Raptor btw.  It’s like free Deadly Poisons
  • Someone commented the following is possible:
    • Play Brann
    • Raptor 1 copies 2 damage twice: 4
    • Raptor 2 copies 4 twice: 8
    • Raptor 3 (shadowstep 1st raptor) copies 8 twice: 16
    • Raptor 4 (shadowstep 2nd raptor) copies 16 twice: 32
    • Prep eviscerate the last raptor. Trade in the original pirate for added BM if possible. Adding in base attack of 1 and that, this would be a 35 attack weapon.
  • Shadow Strike – (3 mana, Deal 5 damage to an undamaged character.)
  • Combo with Malygos?  
  • Great card in general.
  • Bladed Cultist (1 mana, 1/2 minion – Combo: Gain +1/+1)
  • Coin -> Bladed Cultist -> Bladed Cultist = 2 x 2/3 Bladed Cultists on the board turn 1.

Just saw the Warcraft movie. If you haven’t seen it you, you should. I don’t know what is wrong with the critics, but the movie was well directed and the storyline flowed to perfection. The CGI was amazing. If you haven’t seen it, please do not hesitate. See it!
