It’s time to go back to school, Hearthstone fans. Blizzard revealed a new dual-class card for Hearthstone’s upcoming Scholomance Academy expansion today—the first of its kind.
Steel Dancer is a four-cost Rogue and Warrior epic with four Attack, four Health, and a Battlecry. When it’s placed on the battlefield, it summons a random minion with a cost equal to your weapon’s Attack.
For Rogue, Steel Dancer has the potential to be a strong addition to the class. With the right set of weapon-buffing cards, it can spawn a board-shattering, game-winning minion. It’s also great for early-game tempo. But its random nature could be its downfall.
Warrior has plenty of options when it comes to weapons, and in terms of raw damage, it beats Rogue by a sizable margin. Steel Dancer could easily find itself in a control deck, stacked with weapons and large minions.
It’s unclear if Steel Dancer will be a meta card in Scholomance Academy. But with a few extra weapons here and there, it could be a viable option.
Scholomance Academy arrives on the live servers on Aug. 6.
