Warlock enthusiasts, rejoice. Expired Merchant has just been revealed for Hearthstone’s upcoming expansion, Saviors of Uldum.
Expired Merchant is a two-cost 2/1 Rare minion with a Battlecry and a Deathrattle. Its Battlecry discards your highest cost card, while its Deathrattle adds two copies of it to your hand.
This card isn’t the best card of the bunch, but it has plenty of potential in Discard Warlock decks. It synergizes nicely with Soulwarden and under the right circumstances, it could lead to some high-value plays. It fits nicely with Mortal Coil and would work exceptionally in slower-paced Control-focused decks
It would be particularly potent in Wild decks, taking advantage of Bloodreaver Gul’dan, Voidlord, or even N’Zoth, the Corruptor. Warlock doesn’t have access to these cards, but there’s still enough heavy hitters to make it worthwhile.
Expect to see more unique cards before the release of Hearthstone’s Saviors of Uldum expansion on Aug. 6.
