Echo of Medivh meets Shadowcaster in the latest Hearthstone card reveal for the Scholomance Academy expansion.

Potion of Illusion is a four-cost Mage and Rogue spell that adds 1/1 copies of your minions to your hand. They cost one mana.

This is an exceptionally strong card, especially for the Mage class. It’s reminiscent of Exodia Mage and combo decks, bringing back memories of Hearthstone‘s heydey.

Potion of Illusion also fits nicely in Rogue decks, but admittedly not to the same degree as Mage. Copying Lackeys, EVIL Miscreant, and Edwin VanCleef could easily lead to a devastating combo-kill.

Under the right circumstances, Potion of Illusion’s value is immense. Finding those circumstances, though, won’t always be easy. It’s situational and will often lead nowhere.

Hearthstone’s Scholomance Academy expansion launches on Aug. 6.
