While we all wait, patiently, for Alpha (and because it looks like the stream may not have been archived) I’ll post screenshots of any cards Cory spoiled during the stream – put your requests below…

Thanks Colin! I was looking forward to watching the stream when I got the chance, only to find out that it wasn't archives. This definitely takes the sting away somewhat. >_>

3/1 flyer for 5 seems bad

That's what I commented when I saw it/played it. I imagine it's because it's a 3 ATK Blood flyer, out of "character" for that shard and thus more expensive...

It's also one of those cards that could be ok/good in draft, but terrible in constructed. So it will likely see play - just not in competitive constructed decks.

In blood you have 3/3 Vampire King for 4, Uruunaz is a 5/5 for 7, Sadistic Castigator is a 3/4 for 6 and that's ignoring their awesome secondary abilities. Granted they are rares/lengendaries but still.

It even seems bad in limited since you'll have access to other colors flyers.

Would Frost Wizard be able to protect himself? It says when he attacks, implying before any damage calculation is done.

Added the indestructible Wild bomb and the evasive Blood troop (Wailing Banshee)...

Yeah, but you might not be in those colors or get those fliers. It's not a high pick by any means. It'll probably be a mid to late pick most of the time. 3 evasive damage isn't anything to scoff at though.

Certainly seems like it - making him a great card.

Fist of Briggadon looks fun to build a deck around, looks like every color is getting an avatar and they all seem to be designed to be extremely offensive.

I loooooove the Fist of Briggadon. Big giant stompy things are awesome.

The value of Chaos Key keeps going up.

The Timmy in me would love to turn 4 Droo's Walker (Technician or Gearsmith to reduce) into turn 5 Diamond Aura swing for 10 crush, keeping that giant readied.
