After the Dragon War: Danar and Tentineh

Danar lived on after the end of the Dragon War, doing many good deeds. He was 63 but as a draconic descendant he had not aged. He assisted with the construction of the defenses for the Orbs of Dragonkind before returning to Sheerzen to rule his reclaimed kingdom. Danar married more than once, becoming a polygamous king. He ruled well for twenty years, establishing a just society for his people as he had before in the swamp that bears his name. The same system of succession for his progeny. There could be only one heir. All others must be sterilized or executed.

After twenty years of rule, Tentineh came to Danar. The old wizard was entering his slumber and asked Danar to join him. Danar got his affairs in order then entered suspended animation with the other Heroes of the Dragon War. He would only be reawakened by the destruction of the Red Dragon Orb. Continue reading

Blackrock Mountain Announcement

Been a while since I’ve made a post because I’ve been quite sick. The flu is a terrible thing!

I’ve been wanting to make a post about Hearthstone’s new adventure expansion, Blackrock Mountain. Now that I’m no longer as concerned about dying I can write the post! Woohoo!

The adventure is based off a famous WoW raid once again that I know almost nothing about.

Looking at whats been released so far on the official website and trailer I can tell that the expansion has dragons, fire, and dwarves in it.

I LOVE dragons, so this is gonna be a killer set for me.

Moving on to a selection of the previewed cards though!

First up is the previewed Legendary, Rend Blackhand.

Only useful in a very very specific situation. You have to have him and a dragon in your hand and your opponent has to have a Legendary on their board that is worth killing. Otherwise it’s basically a weak Core Hound and no one plays that because it’s bad.

Next is the Hungry Dragon.

I’m pleased by this new addition to the dragon forces in the game. It’s strong, but not overwhelmingly strong. Did I mention that it’s a DRAGON?!?

Then we have the Dark Iron Skulker.

Dark_Iron_Skulker

Pretty obviously intended as an anti-aggro card for Rogues. Rogues already have a few tools for this with Fan of Knives and their hero power. This card is even better because its basically a Consecration stapled to a 3 mana cost minion body for only 5 mana. You’re getting 2 mana of oomph for free if the Skulker damages all of your opponent’s minions. I think this one will see a lot of play.

And the best for last! Axe Flinger!

Axe_Flinger

Super useful alongside Bouncing Blade, the GVG Warrior spell that deals 1 damage to a random minion and then another random minion until a minion dies. And the best thing about the Axe Flinger is that it immediately inspired me to make this video!

Blackrock Mountain is scheduled to come out sometime in April. Hopefully we’ll get to see a few more cards before then!
