Hearthstone: Voyage to the Sunken City – IGN’s exclusive map reveal

Coming April 12th in NA and April 13th in ANZ, Hearthstone’s next expansion, Voyage to the Sunken City, has a colorful nautical theme based on the ancient city of Zin-Azshari, which (according to lore from World of Warcraft) was sent to the bottom of the ocean in the disaster. (See yesterday’s announcement article for more details.) Across the set’s 135 cards, you’ll find vengeful naga, sunken treasure, pirates, sea monsters, and more. Today we’re introducing two of those elements, with Nellie the Great Thresher, a brand new Legend for Warrior.

Blowing barnacles!

As you can see, Nellie is one of the new Colossal creatures, which means she’s too big to fit on one card. It’s a Colossal +1, so it summons an extra appendage when it hits the board – in this case, Nellie’s Pirate Ship. A 5/5 and a 2/6 taunt for seven mana isn’t anything special, but what makes Nellie so powerful is her battlecry, which gives you three separate discoveries (choose one of three cards) of pirate minions, which are then was added to Nellie’s Pirate Ship as a Deathrattle reward. When Nellie’s Pirate Ship is destroyed, they are added to your hand and cost one mana each. So if you’re able to find a Mr Smite or two, Nellie’s Pirate Ship can represent a lot of very cheap damage out of hand.

We don’t really know what the default Hearthstone landscape will look like after the rotation (which happens when Voyage to the Sunken City releases and Ashes of Outland, Scholomance Academy, and Madness at the Darkmoon Faire leave the format), especially since we do know Don’t know yet what the new core set will contain (this is the base card pool and is free for all players to use), but it’s clear that this card has a lot of potential to be played, and so do the other Colossal cards revealed so far also look extremely promising.

Elsewhere in the set is another new mechanic – Dredge – which allows players to look at the bottom three cards of their deck and choose one to bring them to the top, and a brand new minion type – Naga. Sure, there are already a number of Naga cards in Hearthstone, but they’re now a tribe like mechs or beasts, with their own spell-related synergies. You can see all of the cards revealed with the set’s initial announcement in the slideshow below, and if more are revealed be sure to visit Hearthstone’s official card collection page for the latest information.
