The latest card to enter the fray in Hearthstone’s upcoming Ashes of Outland expansion may as well be Legendary.

Coilfang Warlord is an eight-cost Demon Hunter minion with an astonishing nine Attack, five Health, Rush, and a Deathrattle. When it dies, it summons a 5/9 Warlord with Taunt.

Despite being Rare, Coilfang Warlord has the potential to be one of the most powerful cards in Ashes of Outland. Demon Hunter already looks like a strong class that’s well equipped for the metagame, but this card adds insult to injury.

Its nine Attack and Rush mean it can kill almost anything and leave a 5/9 behind. Its turn eight tempo is immense and it should almost always gain some sort of value.

Coilfang Warlord’s only weakness is that it isn’t a Demon. Demon Hunter heavily revolves around Demons, synergizing with them and summoning them with multiple cards. Because Coilfang Warlord isn’t a Demon, it might have a harder time fitting in the new class’ decks.

Ashes of Outland will be released on April 7. Fans can already pre-order the expansion from Blizzard’s online store.
