Blizzard is treating fans with yet another Hearthstone expansion. Ashes of Outland features the game’s first new class since 2014 along with a new set of cards.
The latest card to join the expansion is Underlight Angling Rod, a three-cost Paladin weapon with three damage and two durability. It reads, “After your Hero attacks, add a random Murloc to your hand.”
The card is suspicious, especially since Paladin isn’t known for its high-end Murloc cards. For Underlight Angeling Rod to take off in Ashes of Outland, Blizzard will need to pull a few Murlocs out of the hat.
In terms of stats, the card is average. It has its uses in an early-game oriented deck, but there are already many other options for Paladin. Without a good set of Murlocs, the card simply isn’t worth running in a deck.
That being said, Underlight Angeling Rod could be a decent choice for arena decks. It offers a certain amount of value that should never be underestimated in a chaotic arena scenario.
Hearthstone’s upcoming Ashe of Outland expansion is set to release on April 7. Stay tuned for more card reveals.
