Hearthstone’s next expansion, Journey to Sunken City, launches April 12. The new set will introduce a brand new class, the Naga, the undersea race of mystical creatures, that reward using spells as they sit in your hand. When you get a legendary Naga based on the class, of course the magic based synergy is huge.
enter Hedra the heresy, a legendary minion of the Druid and part of the new class of Naga. Minion 7-Mana with 4/5 stats has relatively low stats, but its Battlecry is huge. It summons a minion equal to the cost of each spell you cast while Hedra was in your hand. Sorry.
That ability makes Hedra a good late-game finisher for large spell-oriented Druid decks. Some of those will be leaving the Standard rotation this year, but last year Blizzard introduced the Core Set, allowing it to rotate in cards from any past expansions to lay the foundation for the other expansions. upcoming expansion. It’s safe to say we’ll see some high cost spells return or new ones added to the pool in the Sunken City expansion.
But Hedra is even viable as a mid-game pick for decks that run some lower cost spells. If you can knock out Hedra on either random side of two minions costing 4 or 6, she makes for a good value game and it’s hard to answer that early in the game.
According to the official description, Hedra rejected the rule of Queen Azshara, which is probably a bad idea.
“While most will tell you otherwise, not all Nagas chose to follow Queen Azshara. Those that did not drift into the deep sea, only a few were able to survive on their own. Hedra is one of those few. She travels across the ocean to turn Queen Azshara’s followers against her or defeat those who do not.“
In addition to the new Naga class, Journey to the Sunken City introduces two new keywords. Dredging allows you to take cards from the end of the deck, while Colossal minions have multiple parts and are all summoned simultaneously regardless of the position of each part in your deck. Blizzard will update with more details about the five new content and Core Set changes shortly before launch. Two Voyage to the Sunken City packs are now available for pre-order.
