    Woodcutter's Axe is genuine. Was revealed by a Chinese streamer Tao Mei earlier today and is up on the disguisedtoast.com listing.
    Yeah my post was a joke.

    The axe is probably better to value when we know how many rush minions warrior gets. Seems like their revel schedule is a bit backwards. Like I think there's probably a legendary that makes "Big Hand Druid" make sense with all the other cards they're revealing and if so they probably should have showed it first.

    DEADLY ARSONAL IS LIKE DRAGONS FURY IN WARRIOR! PogChamp

    Oh its attack not cost. Nevermind.

    New Card - Warrior Common Weapon

    Woodcutter's Axe
    2 Mana
    2/2
    Deathrattle: Give a random friendly Rush minion +2/+1.

    636581812860965013.png

    Sigh. Obviously I'm biased, but I like my version of the card better. At least it's more thematically appropriate. If I updated the card, I'd probably say it's Poisonous to Taunt minions instead of dealing double damage. It would see so much play against most decks in this current meta.

    Oh well... :(

    Edit: This is so true...

    I think there's arguments both ways.

    From Blizzard's perpsective they probably want the Legendary to get a lot of hype when it's revealed. That's probably only going to happen if they show all the support cards it's receiving when they're trying to push a new archetype.

    I was watching Firebat's video on potential meta shifts in the new season and he seems to be all aboard the Hand Druid express.

    We'll see. I still think it has potential to be another complete disaster like Freeze Shaman (it's kinda funny that Blizzard just totally gave up on that instead of trying to force it though like they've done previously)

    Neat tho. Gonna wait on that Gargoyle context, cause I feel like there's something missing there.

    Arsenal is very clearly meant for some sort of Gorehowl-toting control/fatigue deck. Perhaps the idea is you get through the early game with Rush minions as removal instead of the cheap weapons.

    well now in the situations where you don't have armor, which is most likely going to be the case when you really want to clear the board ASAP, Flurry is actually going to be very strong in Baku warrior because that's a turn 5 4 damage wipe. But after that point it'll be pretty dead.

    Deadly Arsenal is a prank right? That art is from Pathfinder iirc, or a D&D source book so I don't see how it could have ended up in a Blizzard game.

    "hey, we've tried to push three different archetypes onto Warrior and none of them have any synergy with each other. How can we fix this?"

    "Let's give them cares-about-Rush cards."

    "Perfect!"

    I could see Woodcutters Axe being good in the future if Rush becomes an evergreen keyword and goes predominantly Warrior

    But for now it just pisses me off.

    It even makes Deadly Arsenal worse!

    The real April Fool's is that both those Warrior cards are real.

    yeah this new monthly reset system is a godsend

    the single best change they've ever made to the game

    my goal was to get to rank 5 with this reset so i'd have plenty of time to fuck around with new decks without feeling pressure about losing rank

    i did not expect to hit rank 5 in literally one afternoon's session on day 1


    um, here, stats??? rofl

    Cg1KvGT.png

    that's... that's it

    i went 7-2 and crushed with spiteful priest, lmao

    9cOf5VO.png
    AAECAa0GAuG/AtDnAg4IkAKNCPIMgrUCursC8LsCysMCmcgCyssCzswCy+YC/OoC1+sCAA==

    i believe this version of spiteful priest to be the absolute strongest version of the deck right now, hands down bar none

    twilight acolytes are actually insanely good, there's a lot of like... 5 attack minions you can steal from (crystal runner, gentle megasaur, crystal lion, cobalt scalebane, drakonid op, doomguard). not even just 5, but 5 attack seems to be a commonality amongst aggro decks right now, oddly. anything though. you can steal anything and reduce damage on board a ton

    cabal shadow priest is equally insane. aggro paladin (yes, oldschool aggrodin with patches and corridor creepers) played an argent squire+rallying blade after i wiped his board with duskbreaker. i mean i coulda slammed spiteful but i was like no fuck that let's crush his fucking soul and i stole his 2/2 argent squire. his literal only minion.

    and of course there's always the twiaco+cabal shadow priest combo. fucking strong. against aggro you can totally set up a t5 aco -> t6 cabal, you don't hafta wait for t9.

    i think the deck is weakest vs secrets mage, probably. but you crush warlocks (MC says hi) and you'll win vs aggro paladins of any flavor if you get duskbreaker

    Weird. That art is definitely not new, I even found some custom hearthstone cards with it from awhile back, but I can't remember where it's originally from. I'm almost certain it's Wayne Reynolds who does a bunch of PF art.

    So I did some digging and you're correct that it's Wayne Reynolds. In fact the Strength of Arms card that Ek0p "reveals" at the beginning of the stream is a card from the WoW TCG that uses the same artwork.

    Not really that surprising since a lot of Hearthstone cards share artwork with the WoW TCG, even if it has been a while since the last one (I think, though I don't know for sure).

    No? It's significantly better on card value, since you're not destroying (on average) half the weapon you paid for, nor did you dump a thousand buff cards onto the weapon that's required to make Flurry do anything. The only reason Flurry is seeing any play right now is because Kingsbane is infinite card value.

    It's more of a significantly worse Dragon's Fury. The good thing about Dragon's Fury is that you can have a lot of different spells in your deck with relatively high mana costs, but Deadly Arsenal has a very limited number of weapons that it's particularly effective with - and right now they're not even weapons you want to be running a bunch of copies of in a control deck. Weapons also are harder to run in redundant numbers than spells because each weapon you draw while you already have a weapon is a draw that is not really good!
