Saviours of Uldum, Hearthstone’s next expansion, is set to launch on 6th August – but we can show off one of its brand new legendary cards on Eurogamer today.
King Phaoris is a legendary minion who can be played by any class, but which looks like a real boon for those with spell-heavy decks. Play Phaoris onto the board and he will summon a minion of the same cost of every spell in your hand. Nifty!
A ripped feline humanoid with a six-pack (seriously, where do all these guys work out?), Phaoris is the leader of the Ramkahen tribe within the shifting sands of Uldum.
One downside, perhaps, is his 10-mana cost for what is otherwise a fairly standard five-five minion. It really is all about that Battlecry.
Phaoris is a card designed to be played in decks with plenty of spells and solid card draw to fill your hand – and therefore the board – as much as possible.
Here’s some exclusive footage of a few King Phaoris combos in action:
Blizzard has also been kind enough to provide us with a clean image of the artwork, below, for your desktop wallpaper pleasure.
