Hearthstone card reveal season is almost over. But before Forged in the Barrens launches on Tuesday, March 30, Blizzard Entertainment has a few more cards for fans to chew over.
The latest card to join the expansion is Apothecary Helbrim, a four-cost Rogue Legendary with three attack, two health, a Battlecry, and a Deathrattle. It reads, “Battlecry and Deathrattle: Add a random Poison card to your hand.”
Unless immediately silenced, Apothecary Helbrim has the potential for a considerable amount of value. It might be a slow card but in the game’s current form, all Poison cards are worth playing.
There’s Nitroboost Poison, which gives a minion and your weapon +2 attack, and then there’s Deadly Poison, which simply gives your weapon +2 attack.
Despite being a generally fast-paced deck, Apothecary Helbrim would be a strong addition to Weapon Rogue, alongside cards like Scabbs Cutterbutter and Swinetusk Shank, a weapon that gains +1 Durability after you play a Poison.
Fans can pre-order the Forged in the Barrens expansion today in one of two bundles from Blizzard’s online store.
