    Edit: Also I love how Optimistic Ogre is no different from any of the other Ogre cards they've printed in the past, mechanically, just that instead of "wrong enemy" it's "correct enemy".

    Because he's optimistic!!
    Yes, it's a great Hearthstone meta joke/callback.

    Buried away on a card that will never be played.

    Okay am I wrong in thinking that Tickatus is really fucking good though

    Like, Rin saw play before, right. And that was a slow card with the payoff of forcing your opponent into Fatigue.

    This is a much easier card to pull off, and it burns 5 cards and puts your opponent closer to Fatigue, which can and often will win you Control matchups.

    Or like imagine slamming this after someone plays Polkelt down.

    It's hard to use it against Polkelt because the earliest you can mill cards is turn 8. I do agree that the milling is a solid, tutorable approach to control games, especially if you can get multiple off Felosophy.

    He's also just fine in Zoo as a 6 mana 8/8 that comes back with Kanrethad Prime.

    If it's easy to activate the corrupt it's good. I'm withholding my judgement on a lot of Corrupt cards because since I haven't been playing it's a bit harder for me to conceptualize the play pattern. Needing to hold it and then play it "off-tempo" with something else after playing something higher cost than it is a hoop, no matter how easy of one it winds up being.

  • fortyforty Registered User regular
    I don't see pulling off Corrupted Tickatus (and not just losing the game right after) being a common occurrence, but god damn will it be frustrating when it does happen to you.

    Hmm so specifically looking at Deck of Chaos, there's some interesting possibilities. The most obvious ones are Malygoose and Jaraxxo, buuuut there's some other interesting applications, perhaps:
    - 5 mana 10/5 Phaoris? Hmmm!!
    - 4 mana 9/12 Ysera! Value town.
    - 5 mana 8/5 Archwitch Willow
    - 5 mana 8/7 Enhanced Dreadlord
    - 5 mana 8/7 Fel Lord Betrug
    - 4 mana 8/10 Twin Tyrant
    - 4 mana 8/12 Zzeraku the Warped
    - 4 mana 7/7 Kael'thas? I don't think ya boi has anything he can do in Warlock, but, the potential is there, at least.
    - 5 mana 7/5 Sociologist Malicia
    - 4 mana 7/4 Valdris Felgorge
    - 2 mana 6/2 Abyssal Summoner (HOO BOY THIS ONE'S SPICY)
    - 4 mana 6/6 Aranasi Broodmother (nothing spectacular, but a 4 mana 6/6 is a LOT better than a 6 mana 4/6)
    - 3 mana 6/3 Kel'idan the Breaker
    - 3 mana 6/4 Khartut Defender
    - 4 mana 6/9 Onyx Magescribe
    - 3 mana 5/5 Cobalt Spellkin (wow)
    - 2 mana 4/6 Archmage Vargoth (this has gotta have some kind of potential...)
    - 2 mana 4/5 Bone Wraith (yowza!)
    - 0 mana 4/4 Summoning Portal??? Does this have any applications at all or is this just memes
    - 0 mana 2/7 Doomsayer? lol

    So most of the value is definitely the higher cost cards, 7/8/9/10 drops. But there's a LOT that can be affected. I think it'll definitely see play, not even as just an OTK enabler. ...But primarily as an OTK enabler, sure.
    Plus this beauty from reddit:

    what the fuck some of these are fucking bonkers

    i'm not sure what kind of weird rogue deck would want to use Cloak of Shadows except like, what, Wild Fatigue Rogue or something I GUESS? i mean evasion never saw like real play and rogue is a tempo-oriented class, not really a control one, so... fortune teller seems a bit meh too.

    the rest though? my goodness

    Fiery Win Axe became Fiery Lose Axe the moment it got nerfed to 3 mana. Literally the only time it's good now is when you have a turn 1 Imprisoned Gan'arg.


    If I ever have to play arena just let me draft like 10 Claw Machines. It seems decent enough that it will see constructed play, but man, you are just going to want to gobble those up in arena drafts.

    Hmm so specifically looking at Deck of Chaos, there's some interesting possibilities. The most obvious ones are Malygoose and Jaraxxo, buuuut there's some other interesting applications, perhaps:

    - 5 mana 10/5 Phaoris? Hmmm!!
    - 4 mana 9/12 Ysera! Value town.
    - 5 mana 8/5 Archwitch Willow
    - 5 mana 8/7 Enhanced Dreadlord
    - 5 mana 8/7 Fel Lord Betrug
    - 4 mana 8/10 Twin Tyrant
    - 4 mana 8/12 Zzeraku the Warped
    - 4 mana 7/7 Kael'thas? I don't think ya boi has anything he can do in Warlock, but, the potential is there, at least.
    - 5 mana 7/5 Sociologist Malicia
    - 4 mana 7/4 Valdris Felgorge
    - 2 mana 6/2 Abyssal Summoner (HOO BOY THIS ONE'S SPICY)
    - 4 mana 6/6 Aranasi Broodmother (nothing spectacular, but a 4 mana 6/6 is a LOT better than a 6 mana 4/6)
    - 3 mana 6/3 Kel'idan the Breaker
    - 3 mana 6/4 Khartut Defender
    - 4 mana 6/9 Onyx Magescribe
    - 3 mana 5/5 Cobalt Spellkin (wow)
    - 2 mana 4/6 Archmage Vargoth (this has gotta have some kind of potential...)
    - 2 mana 4/5 Bone Wraith (yowza!)
    - 0 mana 4/4 Summoning Portal??? Does this have any applications at all or is this just memes
    - 0 mana 2/7 Doomsayer? lol

    So most of the value is definitely the higher cost cards, 7/8/9/10 drops. But there's a LOT that can be affected. I think it'll definitely see play, not even as just an OTK enabler. ...But primarily as an OTK enabler, sure.

    I think the play is that plus abyssal summoner on 8.

    It only changes cards in your deck, not your hand.

    Some of those cards have some good flavor, for what that's worth.

    Revolve: First came Evolve to buff your board; then came Devolve to nerf your opponent's board; now comes Revolve to just fuck everyone's board.
    Derailed Coaster: Imagining (tokens of) the minions on the coaster (your hand) flying off onto the board.

    Other thoughts:

    They are really trying to push some sort of Demonlock.

    It's funny we were just talking about the shittiness of Fiery Lose Axe. Now for 1 more mana you can get the axe and a 2/5 with taunt! That's actually pretty good value. Seems quite playable and amazing in arena.

    Nightmare Amalgam is back, baby! In Taunt Yeti form!

    I think one of the devs mentioned a couple weeks ago that there was a 9 mana Corrupt card with a very powerful effect. I guess it was Carnival Clown?

    Edit: Throw Glaive: Did they just make some new text to have a completely unexplained mechanic on a card? Yes, I'm sure a "temporary copy" is just the "expires at end of turn" mechanic, but nothing on the card explicitly tells you that.

    forty on

    that amalgam is definitely going to make menagerie warrior a thing
