Hearthstone card reveal season is coming to a close. In just two weeks, the game’s next expansion, Ashes of Outland, will hit the live servers, bringing with it a new class and a whole set of new cards.

The latest card to join the expansion is Mok’nathal Lion, a four-cost Hunter Rare with five Attack, two Health, Rush, and a Battlecry. The effect allows you to choose a friendly minion and copy its Deathrattle.

Mok’nathal Lion practically seems like Unearthed Raptor with Rush. It might not have the best stats and it’s vulnerable, but in most circumstances, it won’t matter. It’s a solid addition to the Hunter class and it’ll only be stronger when bigger and better Deathrattles are added to the game.

It’s great with Augmented Porcupine and it curves well with both Albatross and Zixxor. It’s also good for controlling the board in the early stages of the game, creating an instant threat that needs to be dealt with.

Ashes of Outland launches on April 7, but Hearthstone fans can pre-order the expansion today.
