Hearthstone March Of The Lich King Card Revealed – Shaman Gets Huge Guys

3 min read

Hearthstone’s new expansion, March of the Lich King, introduces a whole new class with the long-awaited appearance of the Death Knight. But as always, it adds some new tools to the existing classes, including a range of cards that synergize around Shamans, who have big, burly minions to dominate the battlefield well into the late game. GameSpot can reveal not one or two, but four of these cards, all of which seem to work well together.

In the current meta, Shaman is typically focused on smaller minions like Murlocs or a midrange deck. The class is no stranger to large minions, but has typically used Evolve tools to randomly borrow large minions from other classes. This new pack gives Shaman some more high-priced tools to call his own, starting with Prescience. This four-cost spell is designed to get your big minions while giving you the advantage of smaller taunt minions to buy you time before you can roll out the power hitters.

Foresight (4) – Draw 2 minions. For each cost (5) or more, summon a 2/3 Ghost with Taunt.

And what could such a spell do? Two new major minions make their debut in this set. Blightblood Berserker is a big Taunt minion that also comes with Reborn and Lifesteal, and both times when he dies he will damage an enemy minion and heal you in the process. That’s a big effect in itself, and it also comes with the new Undead synergy. Then there’s the new Legendary Shaman Overlord Drakuru, a great minion with Rush and Windfury that has the effect of summoning all minions it attacks and kills. You.

That’s a lot of power packed into two cards. But if you want a serious double whammy at a big combo discount, you can use the new From De Other Side spell. This 10-cost Shadow spell summons copies of each minion in your hand, makes them attack one minion at a time, and then die. In the case of Blightblood Berserker, that means you immediately gain the lifesteal benefit of both its attack and deathrattle, and it’s still left as a reincarnated minion with taunt. For Overlord Drakuru, this effect negates his Windfury but still leaves a copy of what he killed. And since the spell summons copies of minions into your hand instead of pulling them out of your hand entirely, you still have the original minions to play from your hand whenever you want.
