[Hearthstone] Kripp’s Top 10 Frozen Throne Cards

hey guys how’s it going cranium so I thought a lot about what I want to do for you guys in terms of summarizing what the good cards are in the upcoming Knights of the Frozen Throne expansion and I think that rather than re reviewing all of them now that we have more information from seeing all the cards and knowing how kind of the class archetype will work out like what classes have more options for powerful combos or powerful decks and all that what kind of cars is really high power level that we have to acknowledge will likely be in a lot of decks and you know we can get a slightly better picture but I thought instead I just give you a list top ten most powerful cards the most relevant meta cards I believe we will see from the upcoming expansion now I have a little bit of an asterisk so I think some of these cards might take a little bit to see play it might even be in the you know expansion after this I think some of the cards that were implemented in this expansion are very powerful aggro cards but there are a lot of control cards so one would think that was or just kind of figure out a way for control to take over with just enough healing taunt measures and all that so you know maybe Agra will be a thing but it doesn’t mean the Agra cards we got in this expansion aren’t ridiculous so let’s kick it off here number 10 on my list is actually the Lich King so some people think this is just the best card in the set and you know it could be but you have to keep in mind that this card is really only going to see play in a slow deck so if you’re playing a mid-range deck often enough you’re going to have at least one or two big cards you’re going to pick over it now with the launch of hero cards there are just heavier cards in this one and most mid-range decks rely on the very few but extremely powerful late-game cards so basically King might be an auto including every single control deck but we have seen some of the easiest control cards we’ve ever seen hearthstone history in the upcoming expansion so while I think the Lich King is way above the power level of previous late-game cards in general it is actually competing with a lot of spots at least for non control decks and yeah you are going to see it quite a bit in control decks that’s why it’s 10th on the list a very powerful card we have corpse taker so this card just looks really good and if you really think about it it just is really good like if you’re playing paladin and you got a the burned bristle whatever his name is wicker flame this is going to be a 4 mana divine shield taunt lifesteal just if you have one of those in your deck that’s just ridiculous I don’t know if you guys have tried it but if you just play divine shield taunt minions in your deck it actually does a really good job stopping most aggro it’s just there’s usually slightly better ways to do it but this is a much better way to do it and it’s in that same Department so I think we are going to see a lot of corpse takers especially in the mid range and control decks maybe even in the aggregate decks honestly then I have skalamander I think I have praised this card more than anyone else people seem to doubt its power I don’t doubt its power I think this is the single biggest board cleared deny card we have ever seen and I think it’s stata dwell enough that we’ll see play so I think if you’re running unaggressive – on aggro like an aggressive maybe a zoo deck and you’re up against the control deck usually turn 5 6 7 is when board clears start dropping on your board and you know you start losing and you need chargers and burst and all that kind of crap well if you have a pretty good board and on turn 5 you play this your opponent I would say it’s a mage he cannot Blizzard you because he’s probably just going to die it does really well against doomsayer I think we’re going to see a decent number of doom there’s even though yeah priest has a number of counters for this potion of madness doesn’t really punish it that hard I mean yeah it punishes pretty hard but not as bad as you think because the priest doesn’t get your 8/8 may just be able to five drops again pretty strong but still the main weakness is the priest and it’s not like you’re going to lose the game if it gets potion amends much like other cards with similar effects from the past if you can have any kind of taunt activator if you’re using like the bone mayor if you’re using a spiked Ridge steed like imagine you speed this play this your parents just going to leave it play speed on it for eight taunt and when it dies you get an eight eight and two six thought to protect the eight eight like it’s just absolutely crazy crazy amount of stats for the mana and that’s why I think it will see some play the main answer for this is silence removal but from what I have seen it seems like silence removal is the main counter to priests so there’s a lot of sounds removal going on you know maybe it’s actually still okay to play this because you’re not going to run up against that many priests which are going to have slightly more efficient counters against you then I have the shaman hero card for all deaths here it may not look like you know the craziest card ever but it’s a five cost hero card with a really powerful effect so if you play a four drop and your four drop attacks something let’s see if I can injured four drop you play this it upgrades it to a six drop on turn five and then your hero power just pushes the board constantly it gives you armor which lets you use weapons more in the mid-range deck without having to run healing it’s just a really really high power card and I think it fits into possibly even fairly aggressive shaman decks certainly in mid-range certainly in control it’s just I mean this card the only way this card density play is if shaman says no play and I have to think that won’t happen then we have a despicable dread lord cost four five demon the one damage to all enemy minions at the end of turn I think this card I think people people saw this or like yeah that’s a good card and then just moved along I think it’s worth taking a second look I think this card is a lot stronger than the first look would suggest it denies so many plays from your opponent you know the the end of turn effect happening again and again and again is just it’s just ridiculous against fast decks and it’s a pretty strong mid-range card it carries its own so demon which works with the the new warlock hero and a few other options as well it’s just it’s just ridiculous then we have dead man’s hand in number five so I’ve been a backer this card for a while I know a lot of people haven’t shown it much support but it I think it is the single card that enables control warrior once again and I’m I’m Toland firm on that I think even even like the the warrior hero card I only has a good control warrior card but we’re going to have at least a few control decks working out and control order being able to go incident and keep in mind J druid has a counter now so you know seems like this might be the absolute top dog of control it’s possible and I think that demands some recognition now we have the new one drop on cop21 and it gives a friendly minion +1 attack permanently it’s kind of like what abusive sergeant kind of was in the past and yeah Jesus art is a ridiculous card so this is a ridiculous card and you know there’s some chance a growing zoo might be completely dead in the upcoming expansion I highly doubt that but whenever an aggressive or zoo deck pops up in the meta once again I have a strong feeling this is going to be part of those lists number three is the Warlock hero card I think this covers what control warlock decks were missing all of this time it the hero power that you get deals three and heals you for three so much single target removal so much constant healing exactly what control warlocks were missing they had the big board clears they had the efficient giant plays and all that this is the only thing they were missing and they got it so I have a really strong feeling that warlock is going to do very well and I think this card is going to take them pretty far number two is defile one damage to all minions and if any die cast is again so I thought this card was pretty good I mean it’s obviously pretty good but when we saw in a few of the demos considering some of the cards that people are playing even control decks are playing a lot of cards that just you know that they have to die like two or three times to follow just ridiculous at removing them and it’s it’s better I feel than most other removal options and even warlocks previously had so that’s saying a lot warlocks had amazing early to mid-game board clears and this is better than the past so think control warlock is going to be a thing but we’ll see number one you’re ready for it it’s a one drop yep righteous protector this car is just obviously bonkers I talked about it I think it’s the car that annoyed me the most because it’s clearly a card that’s way above its power level in the one drop slot so I think this card is going to supply in every single aggro pally as long as it’s in standard it’s going to see play and every single mid-range power lead every single buff pally in every single control palette even it’s possible right like it’s so insane even if you’re playing like a combo oriented paladin deck dropping this and then using whatever to turn set up combo that you might need might actually get it to work for a one cost card that’s also insane against every other deck because you can play it on turn one it’s card it is crazy there’s there’s really not much to say about it overall this expansion while my list has 10 it really took me a long time to get down to that I think there are easily 25 extremely powerful cards certainly so I’m not on this list and I think more than any other expansion I’ve mentioned before there are an unbelievably high number of high potential cards cards that could be amazing could not be amazing and those cards I feel are what really make the game fun for me I get to test them out there’s so many things to test try experiment and try to push out some crazy decks out there more so than any other expansion we’ve seen before and that’s pretty exciting any other game might stay fresh for more than typical two to three week period maybe we might get more than a month out of this expansion and I can’t wait to try it out let me know what you think share your excitement the expansion and let me know what card do you think I may have missed on the top [Music]
