Blood of the Ancient One Information

  1. Every TWO Blood of the Ancient Ones will spawn a single copy of The Ancient One. For example, if you had 6 Blood of The Ancient Ones on the board you would receive 3 of The Ancient Ones at the end of your turn. [Source]
  2. The Ancient One is a token (uncollectible), which means it CANNOT be summoned by anything that randomly generates a card, e.g., Unstable Portal, Recombobulator, Summoning Stone, etc.
  3. If you have one silenced Blood of The Ancient One and one un-silenced version, it will still merge into The Ancient One. [Source]
  4. One golden Blood of The Ancient One and one non-golden copy will produce a normal version of The Ancient One. [Source]

      Can’t charge it. It gets summoned “at the end of your turn”

    Well, i know it’s redudant, but maybe these cards would get better, if “The Ancient One” could reform the “Blood of the Ancient One” if destroyed, as a deathrattle.

    You know? Like a Savanna Highmane. But in a infinite loop. Ok, it can be silenced, but its better than… this.

      Thats game breaking, it’s already practically instant win if you manage to summon the ancient one (assuming they dont have any counter cards.) You can’t put a summon 2 9/9 bloods on a 30/30 card, especially not if those 2 9/9 cards just summon another 30/30 minion…

        i think it would be funny to give it little slimes (2x 1/2 or something like that)

    Could the ancient one be summoned from forbidden shaping?

    Let’s see, answers to this…

    Entomb, Polymorph, Hex, Naturalize, Poison Seeds, BGH, Uldaman, Aldor, Humility, Pit Viper, King Cobra, Maexxna, Equality, Mind Control, Shadow Word: Death, Twisting Nether, DOOM, Execute, Crush, Tinkmaster (RNGesus willing), Assassinate, and probably plenty of other cards of varying degrees of viability I’m forgetting.

    Yes, I know some of these are not currently viable (or just outright bad, hello King Cobra, I’m looking at you), but they do stop the Ancient One. Personally, I’m going to be running Priest for a while instead of my usual Mage and Druid just to mess with people running the new bomb cards like this and Y’Shaarj. Entomb, MC and SW:Death and I’ll probably toss in a BGH as well. Because why not.

    • Whispers of the old gods is amazing
      April 6, 2016 at 6:02 am

      BGH is likely to be nerfed as well as (possibly) Keeper so those are probably not counters to the ancient one.

      • Loco
        April 6, 2016 at 2:34 pm

        Because the BGH nerf is definitely going to change its battlecry entirely, right? It’s not going to change so drastically a 30/30 is out of its range, and its cost is not going to raise to the 9-10 range either.

        It is very unlikely the BGH nerf will be so drastic that it doesn’t stop The Ancient One. The required attack value may increase to 8 from 7, or it might get the Buzzard treatment and become a 6 mana 5/3 or something, but there is no way it’s not going to be able to destroy The Ancient One. No card has ever had its mechanics changed even half that significantly.

        Ditto Keeper. So maybe it costs 5 or 6. Maybe it makes the minion a 4/4 or a 5/5. How is that not still an answer to a 30/30?

          “No card has ever had its mechanics changed even half that significantly.”
          Patron charge card… forget its name, Warsong commander maybe? got its mechanic completely eliminated.

          • Loco
            April 6, 2016 at 9:26 pm

            You’re thinking of Warsong Commander, yeah. It was a significant change, but I’d definitely argue that taking a card whose entire point is killing a big minion and changing it so that it does not kill a big minion anymore is vastly more significant.

            Warsong Commander was not intended to allow that kind of raw burst. Big Game Hunter was intended to kill a big minion. Kinda literally in the name of the card. It will not be changed so that it no longer removes a big minion. It will likely be made less efficient at doing that, but it’s still going to do that.

            Though you are correct that it did get its mechanic changed pretty damn significantly, and I did forget about it.

          • Loco
            April 21, 2016 at 11:18 am

            Hey, look at that, the nerfs have been announced and BGH still kills a big minion. Its battlecry is completely unchanged, it just costs 5 now.

    April 5, 2016 at 7:56 pm

    The 30/30 reminds me of death wing. Amazing if the opponent has no taunt or removal otherwise you boned your self jus not to the extent dea thing can bone you. But I think it is undiniable that this card will be fun. I can see it being strong in a deck that can bait alot of removal. I would love to try this card in wild playing a control mage filled with counter spell , spell bender, echo, and prehaps weespell stopper(which is why in wild).

    So hearthstone will realese minimum 1 card per day? So it seems like the e xpansion will come out at the very end of this month, wich I would feel like is sad. Im already done with this season and looking forward to the expansion + wild&standard.

      It’s not a deathrattle that summons the minions. It’s an effect. Read the card.

  15. Cameldd
    April 5, 2016 at 1:50 pm

    much wow, much fun, much crazy, much wild, much standard, much wtf???

    with all the removal cards there are, why would one choose to swap two 9/9 targets for one damn 30/30. Let’s see:

    Paladin shits on it with all the damage reduction shiet;
    warrior shits on it, ez
    if its freeze mage he ignores it easy, if it’s not mage is prbbly fuked, maybe poly is back who knows.
    rogue saps it and the pleasure is his.
    hunter matches doubtedly can reach that long and the same goes for shaman, if it’s control/midrange shaman, hex would be a must on the deck so there’s your answer.

    I’m glad the game can’t have a creature that can’t win the game alone. who the fuck want’s it right? But a 30/30? damn, that’s some nasty shiet, I will love to see how it turns out in the first 2 surprise weeks of the release before it is turned to dust ahah xD

        There is an anti mid range and aggro poison seeds druid so yeah would be no Problem. But I still like the Ancient One its realy cool and if you are something like a handlock or some sh*t its easy to get the enemy at its removel Limit when this card comes down.

      • Loco
        April 6, 2016 at 1:25 am

        BGH would like a word with you. You know, the generic hard-removal for bombs like this one?

        There are only two Druid decks doing anything relevant right now, Combo and Aggro. Combo Druid always carries BGH and Aggro Druid ends games before turn 10, when this card becomes dangerous.

  16. Anonymous
    April 5, 2016 at 12:30 pm

    Seriously, if The Ancient One had “Card can’t be targeted by spells or Hero Powers” it would be nigh unstoppable. Too bad it’s going to be the prime target for hard removal.

        turn 9: blood of the ancient one
        turn 10: faceless manipulator + loatheb or wee spellstopper
        if the card has the same summon mechanic as thaddius, it will always summon to the left, so wee to the left will guarantee to protect it. if youre mage maybe even play a mirror image before the wee, so you get a unspellable taunt and your enemy cant trade with one of the poisonous minions (pit snake etc.)

        • Taknarosh
          April 7, 2016 at 2:39 pm

    Fatigue warriors can use this card, but first you have to bait out bgh and other hard removals of opponent. So this gonna be very late game card.

    Aldor, uldaman, death, entomb, misdirection(?), deadly shot, freezing trap, polymorph, execute, hex….

    So many removals, this is WAY too slow.

    • TheArmorsmith
      April 5, 2016 at 12:05 pm

      Aldor doesn’t remove it? You literally have to keep it on the board for one turn, it’s not slow at all.

    April 5, 2016 at 11:27 am

    Ok so what I see here is a hell of a buff to Aviana. Aviana + x2 Innervate + x2 of this + x2 Faceless = a combo that requires a ton of cards but wins you the game immediately unless the other player has Twisting Nether or x2 Polymorph/Hex.

  23. Nightfall
    April 5, 2016 at 11:22 am

    now the question is, do you rather have 2 9/9’s or 1 30/30? 2 9/9’s are hard to remove because the enemy would need 2 hard removal spells or the never played dark bargain. the 30/30 can be removed with only 1, the 9/9’s do not win you the game if they both stay on the board, the 30/30 does if there isnt a taunt on the board or if he isn’t frozen. the 9/9’s are weaker and therefor less likely to be removed while the 30/30 is top priority. both the 9/9’s and the 30/30 have disadvantages but I’ll have to see

  24. Genieblood
    April 5, 2016 at 11:07 am

    Why is it paladin card, when it has no yellow border?

  37. TacoRocco
    April 5, 2016 at 10:39 am

    Notes: Works with Faceless Manipulator and Herald Volazj as additional “copies”. 9/9 body is tough to kill, and being an epic means that you can have your back up copy with Faceless Manipulator to fill in the hole left by the lost copy. The 30/30 it summons will one shot any hero that doesnt have armor, and 30 health makes it near impossible to kill. That being said, it is incredibly slow and there is no guarantee your opponent wont have a counter play to it. A small taunt can stop the Ancient One from hitting face. Only unconditional removal (such as polymorph, execute, deadly shot, shadow word: death, BGH for this guy) can take out the 30/30. Without knowing the nerfs on the classic set, it is hard to say how good a card like this will be in standard.
