Hearthstone: Every new card revealed in Scholomance Academy

We’ve been revealing the new Scholomance Academy Legendary cards like Headmaster Kel’Thuzad, Hunter/Demon Hunter dual-class Ace Hunter Kreen, the Mage class’ Mozaki, Master Duelist and Rogue’s Infiltrator Lilian as they’ve been announced in their own respective articles — but there are plenty of other intriguing cards on the way in the latest Hearthstone expansion.

Check out the list below for all the other cards being released in Hearthstone: Scholomance Academy. Be sure to check out the first round of card reveals from the day of the new expansion’s announcement as well for cards like Shan’do Wildclaw, Rattlegore and Goody Two-Shields.

Steeldancer

Pretty powerful if you blade your cards right.

Battlecry: Summon a random minion with Cost equal to your weapon’s Attack.

Type: Minion
Rarity: Epic
Set: Scholomance Academy
Class: Rogue, Warrior
Cost to Craft: 400 / 1600 (Golden)
Disenchanting Yield: 100 / 400 (Golden)
Artist: Gonzalo Ordonez

Cycle of Hatred

If you run 2 of these, would that make it the bi-cycle of hatred?

Deal 3 damage to all minions. Summon a 3/3 Spirit for every minion killed.

Type: Spell
Rarity: Rare
Set: Scholomance Academy
Class: Demon Hunter
Cost to Craft: 100 / 800 (Golden)
Disenchanting Yield: 20 / 100 (Golden)
Artist: Anton Zemskov

Brittlebone Destroyer

Broke many a leg in drama class.

Battlecry: If your hero’s Health changed this turn, destroy a minion.

Type: Minion
Rarity: Rare
Set: Scholomance Academy
Class: Priest, Warlock
Cost to Craft: 100 / 800 (Golden)
Disenchanting Yield: 20 / 100 (Golden)
Artist: Dave Allsop

Totem Goliath

It was an art project, and nobody knew when to stop.

Deathrattle: Summon all four basic Totems. Overload: (2)

Type: Minion
Rarity: Epic
Set: Scholomance Academy
Class: Shaman
Minion Type: Totem
Cost to Craft: 400 / 1600 (Golden)
Disenchanting Yield: 100 / 400 (Golden)
Artist: MAR Studio

Thoughts: Totem Golem gains a bigger brother in Totem Goliath. Could Totem Shaman become a force to be reckoned with in Hearthstone‘s Scholomance Academy expansion?

Ceremonial Maul

For the most discerning of hall monitors.

Spellburst: Summon a Student with Taunt and stats equal to the spell’s Cost.

Type: Weapon
Rarity: Epic
Set: Scholomance Academy
Class: Paladin, Warrior
Cost to Craft: 400 / 1600 (Golden)
Disenchanting Yield: 100 / 400 (Golden)
Artist: MAR Studio

Cabal Acolyte

How did he get to the top of his class? He pulled a few strings!

Taunt, Spellburst: Gain control of a random enemy minion with 2 or less Attack.

Type: Minion
Rarity: Epic
Set: Scholomance Academy
Class: Priest
Cost to Craft: 400 / 1600 (Golden
Disenchanting Yield: 100 / 400 (Golden)
Artist: Slawomir Maniak

Thoughts: It wouldn’t be a new Hearthstone expansion without Priest gaining an obligatory card which bolsters its status as the annoying “Oh, you played a minion? Be a shame if someone stole it,” class.

A very strong anti-aggro card which should combo well with Lazul’s Scheme.

Flesh Giant

“A BIG mistake.”

Costs (1) less for each time your hero’s Health changed during your turns.

Type: Minion
Rarity: Epic
Set: Scholomance Academy
Class: Priest, Warlock
Cost to Craft: 400 / 1600 (Golden)
Disenchanting Yield: 100 / 400 (Golden)
Artist: Ian Ameling

Thoughts: This big ugly boi could see play as early as Turn 3 when used in tandem with Spreading Madness, which is insane value. Otherwise, you can play it on Turn 5 if you Lifetap every turn as a Warlock. Looks to be a very useful, strong minion for both classes.

Boneweb Egg

Noblegarden is going to be really exciting this year!

Deathrattle: Summon two 2/1 Spiders. If you discard this, trigger its Deathrattle.

RELATED:  Hearthstone: Keymaster Alabaster, new Legendary minion revealed

Type: Minion
Rarity: Rare
Set: Scholomance Academy
Class: Warlock
Cost to Craft: 100 / 800 (Golden)
Disenchanting Yield: 20 / 100 (Golden)
Artist: Mauricio Herrera

Thoughts: This card was made with Disciplinarian Gandling in mind.

Glide

“Come with me, and you’ll see, a whole new hand of possibly the same cards.”

Shuffle your hand into your deck. Draw 4 cards. Outcast: Your opponent does the same.

Type: Spell
Rarity: Rare
Set: Scholomance Academy
Class: Demon Hunter
Cost to Craft: 100 / 800 (Golden)
Disenchanting Yield: 20 / 100 (Golden)
Artist: Slawomir Maniak

Thoughts: Talk about curve disruption. This card is not going to feel good to play against as Control decks or Handlock.

Felosophy

“Like, isn’t evil subjective man?”

Copy the lowest Cost Demon in your hand. Outcast: Give both +1/+1.

Type: Spell
Rarity: Epic
Set: Scholomance Academy
Class: Demon Hunter, Warlock
Cost to Craft: 400 / 1600 (Golden)
Disenchanting Yield: 100 / 400 (Golden)
Artist: Adam Byrne

Thoughts: This could possibly see some use in Zoo Warlock decks? Other than that, it seems fairly underwhelming at first glance.

As far as what’s not overwhelming, if you have a few minutes feel free to check out the reveal video by Firebat for this card. It’s really, uh… something. Also, we read that flavor text in The Dude’s voice from The Big Lebowski. We abide.

Playmaker

“Here’s the plan: you go left, I go right, and the wounded guy takes the hit.”

After you play a Rush minion, summon a copy with 1 Health remaining.

Type: Minion
Rarity: Epic
Set: Scholomance Academy
Class: Warrior
Cost to Craft: 400 / 1600 (Golden)
Disenchanting Yield: 100 / 400 (Golden)
Artist: Ursula Dorada

Thoughts: This card plus Bloodboil Brute. Or Restless Mummy. Oh, or Kargath Bladefist, which would net you two Kargath Primes, right? Seems like a pretty strong card.

Pen Flinger

The pen is also a more aerodynamic short-range projectile than the sword.

Battlecry: Deal 1 damage. Spellburst: Return this to your hand.

Type: Minion
Rarity: Common
Set: Scholomance Academy
Class: Neutral
Cost to Craft: 50 / 400 (Golden)
Disenchanting Yield: 5 / 50 (Golden)
Artist: Zoe Feng

Thoughts: Knife Juggler just got a new, gnomic best friend. Projectiles everywhere.

Magehunter

Hates waiting. Abhors chit chat. Fond of the color purple.

Rush Whenever this attacks a minion, Silence it.

Type: Minion
Rarity: Rare
Set: Scholomance Academy
Class: Demon Hunter
Cost to Craft: 100 / 800 (Golden)
Disenchanting Yield: 20 / 100 (Golden)
Artist: Dave Allsop

Thoughts: Edwin Van Cleef does not like this card one bit. Come to think of it, neither does the Paladin class.

Groundskeeper

It’s tricky for dryads to tend the garden without trampling the flowers.

Taunt, Battlecry: If you’re holding a spell that costs (5) or more, restore 5 Health.

Type: Minion
Rarity: Rare
Set: Scholomance Academy
Class: Druid, Shaman
Cost to Craft: 100 / 800 (Golden)
Disenchanting Yield: 20 / 100 (Golden)
Artist: Eva Widermann

Thoughts: This card looks to be a very efficient 4-mana-cost minion if the conditions are met.

Adorable Infestation

Some cards are strong by sheer power; others draw strength from love.

Give a minion +1/+1. Summon a 1/1 Cub. Add a Cub to your hand.

Type: Spell
Rarity: Common
Set: Scholomance Academy
Class: Druid, Hunter
Cost to Craft: 50 / 400 (Golden)
Disenchanting Yield: 5 / 50 (Golden)
Artist: Ivan Fomin

Thoughts: Not a bad card at all. Dwarven Sharpshooter and Coin plus this would be a potent little opener. Face Hunter also likes this. As does Druid’s Exotic Mountseller.

Gift of Luminance

You get a small version of yourself in a snow globe to remember the moment.

Give a minion Divine Shield, then summon a 1/1 copy of it.

Type: Spell
Rarity: Rare
Set: Scholomance Academy
Class: Paladin, Priest
Cost to Craft: 100 / 800 (Golden)
Disenchanting Yield: 20 / 100 (Golden)
Artist: L. Lullabi & K. Turovec

Thoughts: This looks like a strong card for both classes. I shudder to think of Convincing Infiltrator getting this as a buff.

Lab Partner

“Professor, a gnome burned my homework!”

Spell Damage +1

Type: Minion
Rarity: Common
Set: Scholomance Academy
Class: Mage
Cost to Craft: 50 / 400 (Golden)
Disenchanting Yield: 5 / 50 (Golden)
Artist: Matt Dixon

Thoughts: Has there ever been a 1/3 1-mana-cost minion that wasn’t amazing? Plus, it’s a 1/3 with Spell Damage on top of it? Looks like it’s time to choose this guy as our lab partner.

Spirit Jailer

“Sure, they’re in your deck, but the mind is like, the REAL prison.”

Battlecry: Shuffle 2 Soul Fragments into your deck.

Type: Minion
Rarity: Common
Set: Scholomance Academy
Class: Demon Hunter, Warlock
Minion Type: Demon
Cost to Craft: 50 / 400 (Golden)
Disenchanting Yield: 5 / 50 (Golden)
Artist: Ben Olson

Thoughts: Another 1-mana-cost 1/3 minion for Demon Hunter and Warlock? This one has upside with the Soul Fragment effect as well, making it a natural fit with Soulciologist Malicia.

Marrowslicer

Perfect for killing the first boss in Icecrown Citadel.

Battlecry: Shuffle 2 Soul Fragments into your deck.

Type: Weapon
Rarity: Common
Set: Scholomance Academy
Class: Demon Hunter
Cost to Craft: 50 / 400 (Golden)
Disenchanting Yield: 5 / 50 (Golden)
Artist: Akkapoj T.

Thoughts: Truesilver Champion on a slight delay? This looks like another strong weapon for Demon Hunter — it’ll be interesting to see if the Soul Fragment mechanic is as potent as it appears.

Shadowlight Scholar

Imagine having the power of soul magic and using it as a reading light.

Battlecry: Destroy a Soul Fragment in your deck to deal 3 damage.

Type: Minion
Rarity: Rare
Set: Scholomance Academy
Class: Warlock
Cost to Craft: 100 / 800 (Golden)
Disenchanting Yield: 20 / 100 (Golden)
Artist: Matt Dixon

Thoughts: A strong Warlock minion in both Tempo and Control decks. Soul Fragment mechanic looking better and better with every card reveal.

Soulshard Lapidary

Also known as a soul sequincer.

Battlecry: Destroy a Soul Fragment in your deck to give your hero +5 Attack this turn.

Type: Minion
Rarity: Common
Set: Scholomance Academy
Class: Demon Hunter
Cost to Craft: 50 / 400 (Golden)
Disenchanting Yield: 5 / 50 (Golden)
Artist: Akkapoj T.

Thoughts: Well, this curves almost too nicely with Marrowslicer, doesn’t it?

Shardshatter Mystic

Enjoys a good soul-crushing defeat.

Battlecry: Destroy a Soul Fragment in your deck to deal 3 damage to all other minions.

Type: Minion
Rarity: Rare
Set: Scholomance Academy
Class: Demon Hunter
Cost to Craft: 100 / 800 (Golden)
Disenchanting Yield: 20 / 100 (Golden)
Artist: Vladimir Kafanov

Thoughts: Kinda like Duskbreaker, only with 1 less Health. And an even activator synergy condition than Dragons? We’ll see. Demon Hunter cards looking strong per usual.

School Spirits

“B-E A-G-G-R-E-S-S-I-V-E!”

Deal 2 damage to all minions. Shuffle 2 Soul Fragments into your deck.

Type: Spell
Rarity: Common
Set: Scholomance Academy
Class: Warlock
Cost to Craft: 50 / 400 (Golden)
Disenchanting Yield: 5 / 50 (Golden)
Artist: Steven Prescott

Thoughts: Will be very useful in Quest Warlock. Looks very efficient like all the other Soul Fragment cards thus far.

Ninja Gaiden was my rite of passage at an early age. After finally beating that game (and narrowly dodging carpal tunnel) I decided to write about my gaming exploits. These days I enjoy roguelikes and anything Pokemon but I'll always dust off Super Mario RPG, Donkey Kong Country and StarFox 64 from time to time to bask in their glory.
