Shudderwock Card Review

It looks like the early leaks have turned out to be true. I was honestly hoping that it will be the case because of this card. Shaman’s power level is very low right now, but this is absolutely insane. There are LOTS of strong Battlecries, and while targets are random just like in case of Tess Greymane, there are lots of Battlecries that are always good.

In Wild, this could obviously be broken with the whole Jade mechanic. Jade Claws, Jade Spirit and such are Battlecries, so you will get a HUGE board after playing this, a board that your opponent just has to answer or he dies.

But looking at cards that are still in Standard, there are still quite a few good options. Any kind of Battlecry card draw, weapon destruction, Saronite Chain Gang (as shown on the stream), Bonemare, Fungalmancer, Guild Recruiter, Defender of Argus, Mind Control Tech, Stonehill Defender, Zola the Gorgon, Kalimos, Primal Lord and so on and so on. If you want to go all-in, you can even play Yogg-Saron, Hope's End and then double his Battlecry!

Even though it’s only a 6/6 for 9 mana, you can’t really look at that, as it will do so much immediately, heavily depending on what deck you’re playing and what you’ve already done this game.

While it’s hard to say what deck exactly will this go into, it looks very promising!

Card rating: 9/10

    How will the battlecries from Omega cards work for Shudderwock?
    Will Shudderwock execute the battlecries from these cards even if they weren’t executed when the omega card itself was played?
    How does for example the battlecry from Mind Control Tech work?
