Mass Hysteria... that sounds like some amazing fodder for highlights videos. The new Priest AoE, gentlemen. Sort of like Brawl but we get to see who kills whom, and there can be multiple survivors. Also, this is going to trigger effects like Lifesteal and Poisonous, plus at 5 mana it's something that can be used earlier against big board decks.

I know it never works, but I swear I am going to try a Chaos Priest this expansion just for the memes.

Quest Hunter got a super-boost. Paladin stole healing cards from Priest again. The reveal stream Warlock deck needed the Quest in it.

@Fergard Stratoavis I gotta say, I do appreciate you posting the cards here. I barely keep up with HS news as is and I'd never go out of my way to look for the information, so it's nice that someone compiles the stuff somewhere familiar.

Thanks

Auchenai Phantasm: In some ways this is better than Auchenai Soulpriest as it's cheaper and the effect survives its death. I'm kind of excited by it, actually. Generally if you're playing reversed healing, you're doing it for a board clear or an OTK and you don't actually benefit by having it stick around for multiple turns.

Jeez, this Mechazod Brawl is terrible. I don't know if it's because of the mechanics or because nearly everyone I've played with has been balls-out terrible.

So, Rastakhan's Rumble is live as of now. At least the card part is, the Arena Run (or whatever the new game mode is called) was not available yet.

I got myself the Frog totem and the matching Loa, so if you chose a team earlier on the Hearthstone campaign it apparently affects nothing (I voted Dragonhawk). I also have 21 card packs to open but it's late and I'm tired so I will open them tomorrow.

I got the warlock spirits and loa. They seem pretty shit.

I also opened Hakkar in my very first pack. Probably also shit.

[up][up] I've heard some streamers think Hakkar has potential. At the very least he's potential deck disruption in neutral.

Can counter Mecha'thun, not that that is seeing a lot of play.

Got the Druid Loa myself, and put it in and Odd deck. Probably not actually good, but it's fun at least.

Also got Thekal from the packs, but I haven't tried anything with them yet.

Okay, my Steal Priest is actually working kind of okay. Mass Hysteria is amazing as a board clearing tool. I ended up dropping the Lyra/Radiant combo because it just doesn't deliver enough value. Similarly, the Cabal Shadow Priests are too slow and unreliable without dragon support.

[up] How does Mass Hysteria work? Do the minions attack in a random order until each has had a chance, minions dying as it goes, or can the minions go to negative hp from multiple hits due to all the attacks happening at the "same time"?

Mechanically, it seems to work as follows:

  1. Pick a random minion that has not attacked yet. Have it attack a random minion other than itself that is not dead. Each deals damage to the other.
  2. Repeat until there are no more minions that haven't attacked.

Note that minions that die during this process still get their chance to attack. I think. I'll have to play it a few more times to be certain I have it right.

Notably, any minion that survives can still use its attack for the turn, but since that's a relatively low probability, you'll want to use your attacks first if possible. You can also game the system by killing off low-attack minions first, ensuring that big minions attack each other. Or you can pop divine shields or whatever else you need to do.

Dire Frenzy + all the Beast Loa that are being played make some interesting reactions from opponents that didn't know you can use that on any beast. I wish I had more time to experiment. 3 essay submissions inbound, I do just the quests.

The Rumble Run is up. Beat it on third try with Warlock discard shrine. I went full Disco: 4 cataclysms and the quest. It was clown fiesta from first game... Talanji was the last boss. She defeated herself by overdrawing and playing stolen Cataclysms.[lol]
