Video GamesThe Ten Journey to Un'Goro Cards That Will Define The MetaVideo Games - RSS 2.0
While I'm not a huge fan of the Discardlock archetype, Blizzard is really, really forcing it by having both of the Warlock legendaries for Un'Goro revolve around the mechanic. The two cards really do go hand-in-hand, so they are my final two meta-defining cards.
Lakkari Sacrifice is another quest that's fairly easy to accomplish, and has a stupidly good reward. Discarding six cards is easier than ever with new cards like Lakkari Felhound, and the reward is a permanent portal that summons two 3/2's every single turn. Even Jade decks would struggle to keep up with that kind of control.
But what makes Lakkari Sacrifice and the discard mechanic so good is Clutchmother Zavas. Usually, discarding a card is a detriment, so cards that force you to discard a card usually have a much more pwerful effect than their mana cost (see Doomguard). Zavas actually turns that detriment into a positive. Not only does "discarding" the card count as a discard for the purpose of the Quest (and Malchezaar's Imp), but it also buffs up the creature. Getting a massive 8/8 Zavas shouldn't really be a hard thing to do, on top of completing the Quest.
So there you have it, these are the cards that we, and a lot of other professional streamers, think will be the ones you'll be seeing the most in Journey to Un'Goro, which launches today! Did we miss any? Are there any broken, overpowered cards you'd rather see on this list? Let us know in the comments.
