Countess Ashmore Card Review

I thought we were done with the Neutral Legendaries, but hey, we got one more. The Curator is rotating out and we’re getting a new version, and it’s arguably better. Curator was already a solid card – while it wasn’t always popular, there were at least a few decks that have played it during its time in Standard. This one is better, because the condition seems easier to meet. Beast, Dragons and Murlocs were rarely “generic” cards you’d want in every deck. Outside of a few exceptions, they were usually played only in specific decks built around their synergies.

However, this one draws a Rush minion, Lifesteal minion and Deathrattle minion. If we go with the Curator way to think about it, drawing 2 cards should be good enough and 3 cards should be insane. Deathrattle is probably the easiest one to get – lots of decks play some kind of Deathrattles.

Also, it doesn’t specify “minions” – it should mean that it can draw non-minion cards with those effects. Which means that, for example, Warrior might be able to draw Blood Razor and Priest could draw Spirit Lash. That’s a big deal. For example, you might want to play this in the Deathrattle Priest. Deathrattles are obvious, then you draw Spirit Lash as a Lifesteal (or well, just an Obsidian Statue, but you could play both just to be sure) and you can throw in a Rush minion or two, because they probably won’t be bad. Similarly, if you play a Warrior deck with Rush, you will also play the Woodcutter's Axe (and possibly Blood Razor too), so the Deathrattle part will be filled.

6/6 stats are also better than 4/6, but the lack of Taunt might hurt. Curator was often played for the Taunt in faster matchups and it often saved my life when I was staring at lethal. This can’t do the same. However, drawing Rush and Lifesteal cards is also good in Aggro matchups if you’re still alive at this point – Rush can fight for the board immediately, while Lifesteal, well, heals you.

While I don’t think that there will be lots of decks that will want to play it, since it’s inherently slow and fits only into the decks running at least two of those keywords, it looks really good on paper. Even if it doesn’t see play right now, it should get better as more Rush and Lifesteal minions are released over the rest of this Standard year (as Deathrattle isn’t really a problem, you can always put something like Loot Hoarder or Bloodmage Thalnos or even Plated Beetle into your deck).

Curator was a good card. Not broken or anything, but just good. I feel like this one is slightly better, so I would be absolutely surprised if it has seen no play.

Card rating: 8/10

    I’m the most pessimistic or realistic case I look that as another guarantee to you draw win conditions like rin or kingsbane,but isn’t that nessesary catch the opportunity to draw another Lifesteal or rush minions,if you already have these cards in your deck,it’s alrigth,but it would muddle so much if you spend slots just to draw some cards,you will draw from that 1 each 2 games and use half of these times,would so much better a card really enters and be usefull in your deck

    Blizzard you’re drunk go home. Blizzard you’re off your rocker. 7 mana 6/6 that draws at least 1 card with a max of 3? 5/5 must craft. Many classes will run this card. Very good.

    Should be decent in Rush Warrior (if it’s a thing), since the Woodcutter’s Axe has a Deathrattle. Don’t think there are any good Lifesteal minions for the deck, but drawing 2 cards is pretty good!

      I concur. Put this with Town Crier and Forge of Souls and Rush Warrior is going to have major draw power.

    Another big fuzz for a mediocre card.
    2 Star card if we dont see valid rush/lifesteal minions.
    Sure it stats are ok for 7 mana and the battlecry is amazing.
    But so far the only valid options to draw is deathrattle minions.(obsidian statue , voidlord , mistress , thalnos ? )
    So far Rush and lifesteal minions are trash.Why bother putting them in a deck only so they can synergize with this card.
    Plus you can draw them bedore this card and you dont want to put 2 copies od trash rush / lifesteal minions.

      This card doesn’t only hit minions, it can draw any type of card. So warlock can get Voidlords, Lackys, Thalnos, and the Amethyst Spellstone, meaning they can already expect to get at least two draws off this card and that’s assuming no good Rush Minions are released that make the cut for the deck.
      Priest also can use this card very effectively, since it can draw the multitude of Deathrattle minions you run (Thalnos, Obsidian Statue, Bone Drake, etc) and draw Lifesteal, meaning you can get spirit lash in your hand immediately. Being able to draw the Spirit Lash+Thalnos combo together is really strong and can often swing the board in your favor while giving you a mass heal.
      The only real problem with this card is that the Rush minions that have been revealed so far are somewhat lackluster but if Blizzard drops a strong neutral Rush card, this card could become quite good.

      • Chocobo
        April 6, 2018 at 5:28 pm

        Dont you find all of these synergies to be extremely situational ? what priest deck runs thalnos and spirit lash anyway ?
        as i said most times you will play this as a 7mana draw 1 card.
        Btw in the current meta you DONT really want to draw that much with warlock.

        • Max

          Kingsbane. Runs lifesteal (leggings poison) and deathrattle (kingsbane) and can prob put a rush Carl Because it is not many good New card fort the out rotating Cards.

    I wonder if this draws DK Jaina. It does have “lifestyle” on the card and it does cause an lifesteal impact on your hero, so hopefully yes?

    • Stonekeep - Site Admin
      April 6, 2018 at 8:47 am

      No, it won’t draw DK Jaina.

      Frost Lich Jaina does not have Lifesteal. It gives a Lifesteal aura. Those are two different concepts.

          dont think so, valanaa use a battlecry to get the lifesteal, he doesnt have it always

  9. PanttiAntti

    Fits pretty much in every deck, even if you don’t have one of each. Just drawing a one specific card is good, but an opportunity drawing 3 specific cards makes it a huge advantage. Also, it’s neutral, so no class limitations either!

  10. Turtlevoid
    April 6, 2018 at 6:37 am

    If you had 2 obsidian statues in your deck, could Ashmore draw one statue as the lifesteal card and the other statue as the deathrattle card?

    • Brendan
      April 6, 2018 at 7:12 am

      My guess would be yes. When the battlecry triggers, the game most likely groups your cards that have rush, do the same for the other two key words, then randomly picks one card from each group. I’m just thinking here, but I’d be really surprised if it didn’t work that way.

    • Stonekeep - Site Admin
      April 6, 2018 at 8:50 am

      That’s a really good question. I will say that it should. It checks for Lifesteal minions, see that you have Statue in your deck and target it for drawing, then it will again check for the Deathrattle minions, see that you have another Statue in your deck (Deathrattle) and also target it from drawing.

      That would be the logical outcome.

      That said, it won’t work unless both Statues are still in your deck, so it’s not very consistent, but might matter sometimes.

      • Hazeblazer
        April 6, 2018 at 3:20 pm

        That said, then what about a Kingsbane that got buffed with Leeching Potion? Would it coumt as a lifesteal card?

        • karpe
          April 8, 2018 at 2:56 am

          i am not sure, but its the most obvious thing since it gets the lifesteal in its stats, or you could just draw it from the deathrattle

  11. Bladeofsteel
    April 6, 2018 at 5:59 am

    This card is really good. It can guarantee a muck hunter, spirit lash or blood razor to get an easy 5/7 Rush off one card. I literally had a meme deck with muck hunter, spirit lash, and coffin crusher combos just as a meme deck to steal stuff with mind control tech. This card alone makes that deck reasonable. 10/10, for making the memes real.

  12. Jorgelenny47
    April 6, 2018 at 5:44 am

    For rush warrior. Your deathrattle card is axe/blood razor
    You rush card is… Y’know, whatever
    And your lifesteal card could be bloodworm, in the worst case

  13. A55a5in
    April 6, 2018 at 4:44 am

    Does Frost Lich Jaina grant lifesteal to the elementals in your deck and if so, will this minion be able to draw them? Could be interesting if so.

    • Tyramir
      April 6, 2018 at 5:44 am

      The Lifesteal effect from Frost Lich Jaina is a static effect that targets the field of play, not minions in your deck or hand. It’s why you can Silence one of their Frost Elementals and it can still Lifesteal, or if you Mind Control one of their Elementals, it will lose Lifesteal when it switches sides on the field.

      • A55a5in
        April 6, 2018 at 5:49 am

        Thank you! The silence effect is an interaction that I’d overlooked.

      • Brendan
        April 6, 2018 at 7:15 am

        Likewise, if you take an elemental from your opponent with mind control tech, it would gain lifesteal as it came to your side of the field

    I can kinda see this in a more midrange sort of Paladin deck; you’ve got some solid picks then with Chillblade Champion (Lifesteal keyword means it gets pulled but it’s also got charge) and obviously Tirion – Gilnean Royal Guard might not be good enough for the mana cost but if there’s a class that might make use of a Rush/Divine Shield minion it’s Paladin.

    Aggro Paladin decks are so strong currently though – would it be worth playing a slower deck?

    * Warrior has some solid Rush and Deathrattle picks

    * Hunter has some good Deathrattles (including Kathrena Winterwisp) and Hunting Mastiff so there could be something there

    * Deathrattle Priest has already been mentioned

    * Rogue gets another option to pull Kingsbane and I’ve seen Bone Baron used occasionally, Cursed Castaway, perhaps… but I don’t think Rogue is really the ideal class for this.

    * Warlock gets another way to pull Voidlord or Rin … or Possessed Lackey. So it might be worth ditching one Lackey for Ashmore in control/cube decks – especially since she can also pull an Amethyst Spellstone.

    So that’s 2/3 of all classes that might be able to fit Ashmore in… I’d be amazed if she doesn’t see play somewhere.

    • Alex M.
      April 6, 2018 at 6:34 am

      The real thing that people seem to be missing is that this card specifically draws lifesteal “cards” not minions. Which means this can guarantee drawing Frost Lich Jaina and Uther of the Ebon Blade. It’s even better in paladin because it can grab Tirion Fordring as well. This card might as well say “put their heroes in your hand” and reducing the chance to not draw hero cards is so insanely powerful, this is probably the voidlord of the set. We’re just crazy lucky gul’dan’s hero card doesn’t have the word lifesteal anywhere in it.

      • CD001
        April 6, 2018 at 6:56 am

        I’m pretty sure it *won’t* draw either Jaina or Uther … Jaina doesn’t have lifesteal she gives your Elementals lifesteal and Uther equips a lifesteal weapon (if there was a way to shuffle the weapon back into your deck it would draw it I guess).

        I could, of course, be completely wrong on this count; it could be any card that just has the word “lifesteal” on it… but I think that’s unlikely.

        • CD001
          April 6, 2018 at 6:58 am

          Though, theoretically, after you’ve played Frost Lich Jaina, Ashmore *should* be able to pull Elementals from your deck…

          • Stonekeep - Site Admin
            April 6, 2018 at 8:52 am

            You’re right about Ashmore not drawing DK’s. You’re wrong about pulling Elementals after you play Jaina.

            Jaina’s aura works on the minions on the board, not in your deck, so that Blazecaller or Baron Geddon in your deck still don’t have Lifesteal.

      • Jonathan
        April 6, 2018 at 7:22 am

        Alex M. You are wrong. It won’t draw the DKs.

        CD001 You are correct about most of what you said, but not the drawing elementals part. The elementals only get lifesteal once they are played on to FL Jaina’s board.

        • CD001
          April 7, 2018 at 12:33 am

    Do you know if Leeching Poison counts a a lifesteal card?

    • Jimilinho
      April 6, 2018 at 3:50 am

      It won’t no, as the card itself doesn’t have lifesteal

    • Tim
      April 6, 2018 at 3:50 am

      It does not. The card “gives” lifesteal but does not “have” lifesteal as a stat for it self.

    • Ugin
      April 6, 2018 at 3:52 am

      Nope it doesn’t. It doesn’t HAVE lifesteal, even if it’s card text refers to the keyword.For exemple, spikeridged steed wouldn’t count as a deathrattle card.

    • CD001
      April 6, 2018 at 7:01 am

      Theoretically though, since Kingsbane keeps any enchantments played on it, if you’ve already played Leeching Poison on Kingsbane, and had it shuffled back into your deck, then Ashmore *should* be able to pull the weapon to your hand.

      • Spyda
        April 6, 2018 at 7:56 am

        it could pull it into your hand anyway, without the Leeching Poison, because it already has Deathrattle. Leaching Poison would just increase the odds of you getting it over some other Deathrattle card that you might be running in the deck

      • PinnySkenis
        April 6, 2018 at 7:56 am

        Kingsbane already has deathrattle so it doesn’t really matter

  17. GlosuuLang
    April 6, 2018 at 3:34 am

    I think people are overrating this. I mean, it’s good, but I don’t know if it’s THAT good. The Deathrattle part is easy, every class has a good Deathrattle they can include. Rush… for Warrior and Hunter, sure, but I don’t think other classes will run too many Rush minions. There’s a bunch of neutral ones, and this curves well into the 8-mana Rush with Divine Shield (which will be an 8/3 on the next turn, exactly what you want), so it can definitely find its place. But Lifesteal… what decent Lifesteal cards are used in Standard? Only Spirit Lash and Amethyst Spellstone that I can think of… If at least this drew Uther DK or Jaina DK, but no, it doesn’t. And just like with Windfury, pure Lifesteal minions and weapons suck. So I’m thinking this would draw 1 to 2 useful cards consistently. Curator usually drew two.

    Also, Curator had Taunt. This is very important because 6/6 in turn seven is an important lack of tempo. So I don’t think this is better than Curator, and also won’t fit too many decks. Still, it’s a good card.

    3.5/5 stars.

    • Tim
      April 6, 2018 at 3:45 am

      just drawing 2 cards out of this is pretty strong at turn 6. If you are about to get overrun its a shitty play but if the board is even this might push it in your favor.

      for a neutral card this is maybe a 3.5 because not every class might be able to fit it in. but if you look at the possible classes that might take big advantages out of this i think its more towards 4.5.

      drawing a card is rated at 1.5mana?

      • GlosuuLang
        April 6, 2018 at 4:58 am

        Turn 7 you mean.

        For me Curator is a 3.5 stars card, and I think this is more or less the same. A 7-cost 4.5 stars card for me would be something like Antonidas, Firelands Portal or Psychic Scream. I don’t think this card reaches that level by any means…

        Yeah draw a card is 1.5 mana. So you’re paying 7 mana for a 5.5 mana body and 3 mana card draw. You’re saving 1.5 mana. It’s good, but not super good.

    • flagkeeper
      April 6, 2018 at 7:43 am

      obsidian statue is a lifesteal card and it doesnt suck.its one of the best taunt in game .mb u forgot that but sometimes that card has more value than lichking and ysera in big priest decks

      • GlosuuLang
        April 6, 2018 at 8:57 am

        Yes, I had forgotten Obsidian Statue. I like the card, but just like Voidlord, playing it for 9-mana from hand is not THAT good, the opponent usually has strong minions on board by then and other important removal. That’s why, like Voidlord, it’s only super strong if it gets cheated out. We must see if Big Priest still has a decent iteration this meta, now that Barnes and YShaarj are gone. Would you put Countess Ashmore in a Big Priest deck? I know I wouldn’t, I want the minions to stay in deck until I can Shadow Essence them, and I don’t want to dilute my Resurrect pool with a vanilla 6/6!

    Is like she call only for minions really serves you,to save u,Lifesteal minions for example are warriors that protect and take care of you,Rush minions are the warriors fight to save you quickly,in emergency,and Deathrattle minions are who die to protect you…I like very much the entire idea behind it,the effect is obviously op and I have nothing to talk about cause you can just put in any deck have atleast two cards from each she draws,and take a biiiiiig advantage!

    Be interested to see how much play this see’s. Clearly a strong card, but as Stonekeep mentions, the lack of taunt could hinder it. If you’re behind on board it doesn’t really help and if you’re ahead it feels like a ‘win more’ tool.

    That being said, as a neutral minion in an expansion with voodoo doll. It’s already got one perfect tutor target. Won’t be disappointed to open it.

    Do you know if Leeching Poison count as a Lifesteal card?

    • Stonekeep - Site Admin
      April 6, 2018 at 4:26 am

      It does not. The card GIVES Lifesteal, but doesn’t have Lifesteal itself.

      I’m not sure about Kingsbane after you give it Lifesteal and shuffle back into your deck. It depends on whether it looks at the base copy of the card or counts the buffs too.

  23. Luca
    April 6, 2018 at 2:15 am

    Wait, can this draw kingsbane? and Uther? it says ‘card’ so it should be able to, right?

    • MrStrategy
      April 6, 2018 at 2:55 am

      I think it might be able to draw kingsbane, but not Uther, because the card itself doesn’t have lifesteal, he just equips a lifesteal weapon.

    Does Houndmaster Shaw count?

    • Sterling90
      April 6, 2018 at 1:41 am

      Yes, it would be considered a “Rush” card. You just have to draw it over another one in your deck.

      • Sterling90
        April 6, 2018 at 1:52 am

        EDIT: Sorry, I just looked at Houndmaster – I don’t believe he can be pulled as the card gives rush to the other cards. My apologies for that info.

    • Stonekeep - Site Admin
      April 6, 2018 at 4:27 am

      No, Houndmaster Shaw gives other cards Rush, but it doesn’t have Rush. So it wouldn’t be drawn with it.

    Great card! I really like Curator! But I think it is important to realise that this probably draws two cards most of the time. I don’t think most classes and decks can run a Rush, Lifesteal and Deathrattle card. Like priest don’t have a great rush card and Warrior dose not have any great Lifesteal option. Curator draw 2 cards most of the time too and that’s still really good. But it is not straight up draw 3 cards.

    I’m not a native speaker but isn’t the rules text’ wording awkward? It feels like there’s something missing. 🙂

      It wasn’t an official translation, we always update it when one gets released. We just updated this one.

      Early translations are not always 100% correct grammatically, but they should at least be understandable 🙂 We feel like getting the card out quickly so you can see it right away is more important than making the text box look clear.

    6 .lady in white
    7. this card.
    8. 8 8 divinie shield with rush
    9. 1 2 12 syera
    10. umbra coffin crasher into obsidian gg ez game ez life
    i feel this expnasion is suporting priest like hell.
    too many synergy for lady in white.
    and this card… i dont think any class like priest gets benefit of this card cuz some classes like drui that has no good deathrattle or lifesteal or paladin also or mage .i dont know but i feel this should be priest card.

      Good luck finding and playing those 2 legendary cards in a row and putting bad minions in your deck 😉 I think it’s just a good standalone card like curator is, no need to find weird combos

        spitfull summoner pirets barely has bad minions.worst of them is ozee but rest are good even a 2 mana historian has so much value for me.its a value deck totaly not secret hunter that u have only 4 or 5 value cards

      This card draw both Warrior weapons (4 of them) and its rush minion(maybe 4 too). Insane in the new CW deck, and CW lack a good 7 drop forever too lol

        how about life steal spells for warlock? Could it draw spells too?

          There should be no reason not to, since it doesn’t specify what kind of card it draws. If it was “draw X, Y and Z minion”, then it would be a different story.

    awesome card all round 😀

    This could allow some card draw for hunter too, yay!

    Nice card. Priest could use it, to draw statues, the 8 mana 3/8 divine shield rush, and coffin crasher…

    I don’t know if this draws 3 cards actually, I think it is more “draw a card with Lifesteal or Rush or Deathrattle”, otherwise this is absolutely stupid and overpowered. If this is actually what people think, this is the new Dr Boum.

    • Crxne
      April 5, 2018 at 11:28 pm

      I’m sure this draws only one card because in french it’s translated “Draw one card with Deathrattle, Lifesteal, Rush in your deck”. There is no way this draws 3 cards, way too strong, but it’s still very good because targeted draw is always nice!

        Except that the wording (in English anyway) is the exact same as “The Curator” and he can draw three cards. So yes it can draw three cards and please don’t quote translations. Different languages interpret things differently.

      It draws 3 like curator.

      • Crxne
        April 5, 2018 at 11:53 pm

        I really hope it’s not the case otherwise this will be played in EVERY deck…

        • flagkeeper
          April 6, 2018 at 12:04 am

          not all decks get benefit from this card but its a hell of card i guess best card revealed.

        • Stonekeep - Site Admin
          April 6, 2018 at 1:12 am

          Why, though? It’s not much better than Curator, and while Curator is a good card, it has seen play only in a few decks over the ~1.5 years it was in Standard.

          It looks like a strong card, but it definitely won’t be played in every deck.

          And I’m 100% sure that it draws up to 3 cards.

        • Matt
          April 6, 2018 at 1:13 am

          You kind of have to look at what it draws though. Most classes don’t have access to good lifesteal or rush minions.

    • flagkeeper
      April 6, 2018 at 12:01 am

      if u have no spirit lash and just a few deathrattle u exatly going to get statue and coffin crasher and the rush minion .its going to be like that in spitfull summoner deck with lady in white:DD

    What would happen if I only had Obsidian Statue and the murloc lifesteal (Deadscale Knight) as the viable cards in my deck and I summoned this? Is there a chance for it to only draw one card cause it chose Obsidian Statue as the life steal card? or would it draw two cards all the time?

    • SwoleLord
      April 6, 2018 at 12:16 am

      It would draw both if that was its only options

  37. Matt
    April 5, 2018 at 11:16 pm

    Obsidian + coffin crasher?

    Blizzard you made me proud with this card not going to be shocked if nerfed to 8 mana.

    Curator on crack anyone? This seems insanely powerful, and might be the best card of the set. 7 mana 6/6 that can draw 3 cards? That’s absolutely nuts.

    I thought there would only be 4 neutral legendaries, but WOW what a surprise

  42. Matt
