Blizzard unveiled the newest Shaman card in Hearthstone’s upcoming Saviors of Uldum expansion today, and murloc fans are in for a treat.
Plague of Murlocs is a three-cost Shaman spell that transforms all minions in play into random murlocs. The strongest murloc card in the game right now is the 4/4 Scargil, meaning Plague of Murlocs can serve as a powerful tool against an opponent who’s filled their side of the board with giants.
Although the game’s next expansion won’t go live until August, the Hearthstone developer has been teasing fans with card reveals over the past few weeks. As part of the Fire Fest-EVIL, Blizzard rewarded fans for defeating bosses in the Blackrock Tavern Brawls by revealing both Plague of Madness and Psychopomp over the weekend. With Plague of Murlocs revealed today, only one card remains as part of the Hearthstone developer’s promotion of the solo mode.
Fans will be able to add Plague of Murlocs and other cards from the expansion to their collection when Saviors of Uldum goes live on Aug. 6.
