Probably next to 0.

IIRC the official reasoning for each of these cards wasn't just the odd/even deck, but that in general they were too cheap. Like Equality's cost went up 2 and it remained even.

[up][up] The only time blizzard has ever really ‘unnerfed’ a card is Molten Giant when it moved wild only.

And they don’t want to have ‘’any’’ basic cards be viable for play, that puts a wall between you and their money they want to wring out of you to buy new packs.

The Violet Hold has to be the worst prison in the world. Even in card games, it gets infiltrated.

At the Brawliseum I met a rogue that played Spirit of the Shark, then used two Bonemares to grow the Spirit into 25/25 in a single round.

I am clearly not thinking about the deckbuilding synergies hard enough for this.

Another teaser video.

So the character of the next card is pretty easy to guess. And given how the cards have so far corresponded to the latest expansions, the final and fifth card is most likely Rastakhan himself.

I'm all up for any sort of villainous team-ups, and crossovers in general, so you can colour me intrigued.

EDIT: Well, the latest video deviated from the pattern. Got me there.

Kalec seems pretty strong. Since it's the first spell every turn, that means you can cast a spell the same turn you play him, possibly the spell you just discovered.

That trailer gives me some hefty Sly Cooper vibes. Speaking of which, I would immediately throw money at a stealth platformer starring these guys.

Somebody in the comments also noted that the premise of this expansion is basically the plot of Shrek the Third.

  • Rafaam - Looks like this is the go-to Legendary to slap in all Warlock decks now. Zoo can definitely make use of this if it survives into late game, and it won't be a bad control finisher either.
  • Chef Nomi - The finisher. Less restrictive than Mecha'thun, but also not a 100% guaranteed win. Can't measure it in a vacuum as well as Rafaam, gotta see what other Control options are out there.
  • Kalecgos - If control value Mage is a thing, this is definitely the kind of card they'd play. Might be disastrous vs. Combo decks though. Also, this is the one minion you don't wanna coin out (as it will register The Coin as the first spell of your turn)
  • Treebois - I'm torn on Twinspell. It feels like the returning keywords and card series are there to mask the fact that Twinspell just feels kinda meh on a creative level? The card itself is pretty strong in Arena, at least, but 8 mana is a lot to pay for an easily removed board of 2/2's, even if you get two.
  • Scheme - This right here is the good stuff. A horrible topdeck, but if you keep it in your hand for two turns you already have a solid boardclear - and it only gets better from there, if you can manage to hold off the enemy until then. Also pouchable off Hex if you're into Spirits of Frogs.
  • Miscreant - I think it's telling that the first revealed Lackey card is Rogue's. If anyone can use 1-mana cards, it's them. 1/5 on its own is unimpressive, but the Lackeys are pretty strong.
    • Ethereal Lackey - Class-dependent, but Rogue has a couple of good spells to grab.
    • Kobold Lackey - Good for just about any situation.
    • Goblin Lackey - You can use it with your Miscreant for a 2/5 Rush, so it's not useless even if you're starving for minions.
    • Witchy Lackey - A random 4-cost minion is likely to be better-statted than a 1/5. Naturally good if you've got other minions on, like Sharkfin Fan tokens.
    • Faceless Lackey - "Random 2-cost minion" is always the text that puts your hairs up(coughcoughdoomsayercough). I'd say it's the weakest of the lackeys overall.
  • Jeweler - Kobold Monk didn't see any play, but this one comes cheaper and the effect is guaranteed even if a 3/4 is removed, so... maybe? It also makes Time Out! look worse outside of specific situations and against huge boards.
  • Word - Flexible removal is always good.

For Kalecgos, remember that mage also gets Twinspell effects. So there's potential to discover and cast both copies of a twinspell for free with him if he survives a turn.

If you only craft one card, probably Zul’jin.
