The Hearthstone team has revealed another new card in the upcoming Rise of Shadows expansion, and it’s looking like a good one. In a Twitter post earlier today, the game’s developers announced the name and powers of the new card: Swampqueen Hagatha.
Another villain from the rogue’s gallery of the evil-themed expansion, Swampqueen Hagatha features a spooky-looking crone with green skin and hooked hands. The card is a seven-mana Legendary Shaman minion with five Attack and five Health. Its Battlecry effect allows a player to add a 5/5 Horror to their hand and “teach it two Shaman spells.” The card is the fourth Legendary to be revealed for the upcoming expansion after the revelation of Arch-Villain Rafaam, Chef Nomi, and Kalecgos in last week’s detailed trailer.
This newest addition to Rise of Shadows already appears popular among Hearthstone’s fanbase, with the release trailer eliciting a number of excited responses from notable community members. As the release of the expansion grows near, only the metagame will tell whether Swampqueen Hagatha’s unique “Build-a-Spell” ability is broken or balanced.
The Rise of Shadows expansion pack will be released on April 9, and will be available for purchase in the form of a 50-pack standard bundle and an 80-pack mega bundle.
