Cards Revealed During the Opening Ceremony
The first card revealed a new mechanic called Overkill. Basically, if you deal more damage than needed to kill an enemy you get a bonus effect. With the card Sul’Thraze it would be possible to attack up to 4 times in one turn with the same weapon!
They said the fans would be getting involved in this set which was a transitional saying for the new card reveal Sharkfin Fan.
Next, they transitioned into cards they call spirits which are manifestations of the Loa which are powerful gods. They are all class-specific 0/3’s that have stealth for 1 turn and are rare so you can pack two of them.
Finally, they revealed a Paladin legendary that was a representation of the previously discussed Loa. Each class will have its own Loa as a representative. For Paladins, it’s Shirvallah, The Tiger.
