Hearthstone’s reveal stream for the Ashes of Outland expansion is in full swing today and the Mage class looks great.
Mage has had a variety of valuable spells revealed for Ashes of Outland, including two of the latest, Deep Freeze and Font of Power.
Font of Power is a one-cost spell that allows you to discover a Mage minion. If your deck has no minions, you get to keep all three. One of the archetypes being showcased on the livestream is a Spell Mage deck that includes no minions. Font of Power will be one of the cards that makes this archetype tick. If you were hoping for a new way to play Mage with Ashes of Outland, now you’ve got it.
Deep Freeze is an eight-cost Mage spell. The above image has Deep Freeze at seven mana because its cost was reduced during a game on stream. Deep Freeze allows you to freeze an enemy and then summon two 3/6 Water Elementals. This will give the no-spell archetype the ability to populate the board and slow down the opponent’s onslaught.
If you’re someone who enjoys playing Mage, Ashes of Outland looks like it may give you a reason to stop playing Highlander.
You can check out all of the new Mage cards when the expansion goes live on April 7.
