Hearthstone’s The Witchwood expansion reveal stream took place yesterday and revealed ten new cards. The most anticipated one was Hagatha the Witch, a legendary Shaman Hero card, and the only Hero card in the entire expansion.
In this post, I take an in-depth look at Hagatha and her effect.
Hearthstone’s The Witchwood expansion brings two new mechanics into the game. The first one is Rush, a Charge that cannot hit face. The second one, Echo, is more interesting: cards with Echo return to your hand as ghostly copies when played and can be played again during the same turn. At the end of the turn, the ghostly copies disappear from hand.
There is actually already a card in the game that functions exactly like Echo: Unstable Evolution. If you’ve played some Shaman recently – and not many people have – you may already have experience with how the mechanic works.
With more similar cards coming out, there will be more interesting situations with the mechanic, so let’s go through what we know about the mechanic and what synergies there may be.
