Shaman is the only class getting a new Hero card in The Witchwood, and she was unveiled in today’s card reveal stream.
In the stream hosted by senior designer Peter Whalen and legendary caster Dan “Frodan” Chou, the pair unveiled cards and discussed the potential implications.
Hagatha the Witch has a nice board clear Battlecry, which sets up the potential to lead the board control game. While you’re doing that, you get the additional tempo of a Shaman spell generated too. It’s a passive hero power, which are pretty rare—only the Rogue Hero card from Knights of the Frozen Throne had one until now.
The stream is the start of card reveal season. Now community sites and content creators will unveil cards over the next few weeks, until the expansion launches in April.
The set is now available to pre-order, with a massive 70 packs available for $49.99—the most packs ever on offer for that price as part of a pre-order and 20 more than usual.
No release date has been confirmed for the expansion, only that it will arrive by mid-April.
