Stay up to date with all the Return to Naxxramas card reveals in our dedicated guide!
Although no exact details have been announced yet regarding the mini-set, with only a brief teaser about it being Naxxramas and Silvermoon themed earlier today, it looks like we've got one important detail about a new minion!
In an image posted to Twitter, the official Hearthstone account has given us a look at a new Murloc Dragon dual-type, and the alt text shows Putricide might be a big part of this whole new Naxx thing.
Quote From @PlayHearthstone
Two minions, one test tube. So many dangerous possibilities!
A ferocious Dual-Type Murloc Dragon minion bursts from a vial of green liquid within Professor Putricide's lab.
If you could create your own Dual-Type Minion, what would it be?
If Professor Putricide approves, we'll bring your idea to life!
Nothing says that this is going to be a collectible card in the mini-set, but with the teasers today and this art being on hand, something tells us this is another teaser and we should expect some interesting cards coming out of the set. With the description stating that there are so many possibilities, could this be a Professor Putricide Legendary card that can spawn a bunch of different dual-type minions? Maybe it's a Discover card so there is plenty of opportunities for synergies in different decks.
What do you think this theoretical Murloc Dragon will do? Guess the stats and its effect in the comments below!
This question was asked on Instagram, link below:
Remember Deathstalker Rexxar, a Hunter Hero? And his hero power "Craft a custom Zombeast", where you discover 2 beasts and combine them into 1 minion?
How about a card (Hero ?) - "Craft a custom Dragon-Murloc" - where you discover a Dragon, then discover a Murloc - and combine their stats and effects into 1 minion? :)
IT Will be more like discover two different minion types so like undead & beast / dragon & elemental/ pirate & quilboar and combine them like a zombeast
Sort of like Scourge Tamer?
Yeah, good point! I forgot such card as Scourge Tamer exists now. Yep, something like that :)
I didn't mean my comment in a snarky way, sorry if it came off that like that
Won't be the first one:
(had to do a screenshot because for some reason websites including playhearthstone do not reflect the double tribe that was added to this one)
This card was when I started yelling that giving Paladin these half-assed synergies was terrible and they needed dual-tribes to make the (terribly unthematic) archetypes work. Now you can run them but Paladin has better things to do. And y'know what? I'm kinda fine with that.
I was thinking about cool stuff the tribal overlaps could do with Divine Shield which pop up on the best Pally tribals, but then I thought about how awfully fast Wild is and concluded that the deck would be jank. :-/
