Blizzard Entertainment introduced Dark Skies, the latest card for Hearthstone’s upcoming Descent of Dragons expansion, today.

Dark Skies is a three-cost Warlock spell that deals one damage to a random minion. The effect repeats for each card in the player’s hand.

The card is the perfect addition to Handlock, allowing players to sit on their high-cost cards and stall the game as long as possible. It has the potential to deal a good amount of damage, clear the board, and prevent early-game aggression.

Even though it costs three mana, this spell should still be viable. It could also fit in a number of Warlock decks, both mid and late-game focused. There’s a chance it’ll feature in an early-game deck, but realistically, it’s destined for late-game dominance.

Combined with the new Legendary Warlock card Valdris Felgorge, Dark Skies can hit up to 11 targets for just three mana. It’s not the most overpowered card in the expansion, but it’s an interesting addition to the metagame.

Hearthstone’s Descent of Dragons expansion is due to release on Dec. 10.
