Lord Jaraxxus returns to Hearthstone in Hero Card form for the 2021 Core Set

“You face Jaraxxus, Eredar Lord of the Burning Legion!”

One of the most beloved and unique cards from the early days of Hearthstone, Lord Jaraxxus, will be making its return to the game in Hero Card form as part of the 2021 Core Set.

Once a staple of the competitive Hearthstone meta in the Handlock set, the original Lord Jaraxxus was a Warlock Legendary minion with a 9-mana cost, 3 Attack and 15 HP; Jaraxxus’ Battlecry would destroy the player’s current Warlock hero and replace it with Lord Jaraxxus, who equipped the player with a 3 Attack/8 Durability Blood Fury and touted the 2-mana cost Hero Power, “INFERNO!,” which summoned a 6/6 Infernal to the board.

Lord Jaraxxus returns to Hearthstone

The new version of Lord Jaraxxus will be a Hero Card which operates much in the same way the Death Knight Hero Cards did from the Knights of the Frozen Throne expansion; Jaraxxus will still replace the player’s current Hero and equip it with the 3/8 Blood Fury weapon, but will no longer change the player’s health to 15, making it a more viable option to play Jaraxxus at any point in the game and not just as a “last ditch effort” play when the player is drastically low on health. The Hero Card version of Lord Jaraxxus will also give the player 5 Armor.

Will Lord Jaraxxus be an auto-include in Warlock Control decks once again when Hearthstone‘s 2021 Core Set goes live? Let us know in the comments.

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.
