The Warlock class is known for having a variety of spooky minions. And it doesn’t get much spookier than Riftcleaver.
Riftcleaver is the newest card revealed from Hearthstone’s upcoming expansion, Saviors of Uldum.
This massive 7/5 Demon costs six mana and comes with a very powerful Battlecry. Riftcleaver’s Battlecry allows you to destroy a minion, but your Hero takes damage equal to that minion’s health. This fits perfectly with Warlock’s longstanding class trait of self-damage in exchange for value.
Riftcleaver will likely show up in a variety of Control decks. If you aren’t playing Warlock during week one of the expansion, be wary of tossing out your important minions during the mid-game. Riftcleaver’s Battlecry is so interesting that he’ll probably find himself in a number of archetypes as players try to figure out the new top-tier decks.
See if Riftcleaver can lead Rafaam to victory when Saviors of Uldum drops on Aug. 6.
