In case you haven’t heard, Hearthstone’s headed to a dino-filled crater for its next expansion, Journey to Un’Goro. Mechanically that means a whole heap of new cards to experiment and fight for board control with. We’ve got our very own to reveal, Tol’vir Warden, and you can discover it below.
We also have a full Journey to Un’Goro card list for you.
Without further a-do, here’s the boy himself:
You can watch the video above for some discussion of where Tol’vir Warden might fit in Hearthstone decks, but here’s a quick run-down of some particularly effective combos:
- Certainly the most obvious, being Hunter’s current best one-drop.
- Likely puts Tol’vir Warden at the top of an aggro-beast curve.
- Tol’vir Warden can also grab classic aggro cards like Timber Wolf, Abusive Sergeant, Argent Squire and Firey Bat.
- Fire Fly
- Un’Goro’s only neutral one-drop so far.
- Could help power a more late-game Hunter elemental deck.
- Clearly depends on there being more good neutral or Hunter elementals.
- Shifter Zerus
- A little of a wackier choice, but representative of a slower playstyle.
- Drawing cards is powerful, and Shifter Zerus is the one-cost card with the highest possible impact on the late game.
- Runic Egg could help you turn one-drops into other cards, but would need support. Mistress of Mixtures is a larger body and helps you stay alive.
It’s certainly got diverse options, though lacking in the raw power department. The challenge is to find a use for two extra cards the next turn, either by having a decent four-cost to pair them with, or playing Tol’vir Warden off-curve itself. If seen as a seven cost 3/5 that creates four 1/1s (in the case of Alleycat) - that’s a very different card, but also not always how it will play out.
Let us know in the comments how you’ll be using Tol’vir Warden when Journey to Un’Goro releases in early April.
