Plague Cards in Saviors of Uldum

April's Rise of Shadows expansion introduced Scheme cards to Hearthstone. These unique spells grow in power for each turn they remain idle in your hand, building up to an explosive play in the process.

This time around we'll get to mess around with Plague cards. These are big, impactful cards designed to be utilized in the late-game - and they'll make their impact on both sides of the board as well.

One example given is the Priest's Plague of Death. This is a 9 Mana spell which silences and then destroys all minions on the board. That means any buffs or Deathrattle cards will be removed from minions before they all evaporate!

Quests in Saviors of Uldum

Quests were a popular - although not always competitive - concept introduced with April 2017's Journey to Un'Goro set.

Costing one Mana (and invariably played on Turn 1), these quests challenged you to complete certain card play objectives in exchange for a juicy reward.

Saviors of Uldum brings the concept back to life with a fresh set of Quest cards, which will hopefully benefit from a bit of design hindsight.

The Druid gets Untapped Potential this time around. If you play this card and then end four turns with even one point of Mana left in the bank, you'll receive a new hero power: Ossirian Tear.

This is a passive effect that causes both effects from the Druid's arsenal of Choose One cards to be triggered.

Saviors of Uldum Reborn Keyword

Every expansion introduces a new keyword mechanic to the game, and Saviors of Uldum is no exception.

The way this works is pretty simple. Any minion that possesses Reborn will be re-summoned onto the board upon death. The catch, however, is that they only resurrect with one point of health.

An example given is Restless Mummy. This Warrior-exclusive card costs 4 Mana, has 3 / 2 stats, and also includes the Rush keyword.

That means it can attack an enemy minion on the same turn it's played, then respawn with one point of health when it dies and chip in for another three points of damage.

Saviors of Uldum Cinematic Trailer

A new cinematic trailer was also released to herald the announcement of Saviors of Uldum. Here it is for you:
