    Do we know if we will be getting “Watchpost” cards in the following expacs? Seems possible, since the next one will be alliance themed and then a Alliance/Horde combat expac for the third. 2 more watchposts with a synergy card next expac, and then 2 watchposts and a synergy card in the third expac? suddenly this archetype is incredibly reliable and consistent- and what a fantastic flavor that is

    I feel like the ‘lookouts’ should have some form of interaction, rush or taunt otherwise it feels a bit slow. 7 mana fill the board but not answer anything might be a bit slow

    So the Idea for a Watchpost Deck is that if you feel like your more of a Mini-Game then anything, and I’m actually excited for what the Barren Solo Adventures are going to be. Regardless, I think this card overall is ooooo-kay. It gets the job done, however I’m not entirely to fond with the Crossroads Watch post, But…! Who knows. Now in Terms of Who can use a Watchpost Deck, I think It’s Any Class that can help stall out to give them breathing from or to give them buffs to help them survive better. That or just LOTS of Card draw just because.

    So.. Demon Hunter COULD use Kargal Battlescar, just becuase He is known for having the most powerful card draws in Hearthstone. But then again… You would also just use Soul.

    I’m not too sure what would both Soul and Watchpost Demon Hunter is going to look like, Although it sound like a Scary Token-y Midrange-y Deck.

    Druid, Sure, Although I think Hearthstone wants Druid to go more for Treaents and Taunts for now.

    Hunter is going for Beasts, so I think Kargal would be too slow for Hunters.

    Mage COULD Try it out and Experiment. Could be a Good Deck, Could be a Bad Deck, we’ll just have to see.

    Paladin with Librams can sorta work. The only Problem I have with Paladin is that He lacks Card Draw in my opinion, Although! Maybe this is where the Secret package might come in handy. Maybe adding in Secrets and Watposts for Paladin is going to sound like a mad Scientist idea that sounds like it might not exactly work, but maybe in reality it’s actually good. Now, I said it once and I said again with Smythe, and I still believe that the Secret package CAN be good, but it’s just going to feel clunky.

    Prist can do it, becuase he is easily known for it’s control value, plus Apoethsis is a strong card.

    Rouges can do it, but I think they just want to spam Pirates and Wepaons right now.

    Shamans will absolutely try this out, escpailly since Evolve Shaman is in the Meta. Even if the Watchposts aren’t as great as we expect them to be, (which I think they would) Shaman will as least try out the newest version yet of Evolve Shaman but with maybe both Murlocs and Watchpost.

    Warriors, Escpially Garrosh, is just going to be the most Themable but Memeable looking of the Class, although he has his own value of generating and card draw thanks to War Cache and Cutting Class, so, I think Warrior will be fine.

    And Lastly, Warlocks. I think Warlocks could also try it out, Escpailly with Primelock, where they spam Envoy and Ebonlocke. Although i do think that Warlock might be a slower and more steadier version of the whole class.

    So yeah, I think Kargal is going to be just fine. We’ll have to see how powerful the Watch Posts are going to be, But, now if you want to play a Midrange TOken style deck, now you can do so.

    5 Stars for Variety, and Kargal himself, even if the Watchposts aren’t as great as we assume of it, is getting 4 Stars. There’ just no way you can simply ignore the 5/5s casually, escpially if he summoned 2 of them.

    Hm, this watch tower archetype is really interesting. But I think we’d need more support than the 1 decent watch tower, 1 bad watch tower and this legendary minion to fuel that archetype.

    I like the watch posts, and this is quite the payoff
    could make some kind of neutral midrange package with this as a finisher
