Blizzard answered the wishes of many Hearthstone players and announced the launch of N’Zoth, who is another one of the Old Gods.
Of the Old Gods in Hearthstone, N’Zoth was probably the most anticipated of cards. The forums have been full of discussion regarding what the Old Gods will be capable of in the field. N’Zoth has been the center of these discussions, particularly his looks. The new reveal has never before been seen in any Warcraft game. You would expect something as major as a different Old God to be present in another game, but N’Zoth will apparently be the first big reveal in Hearthstone alone.
N’Zoth, The Corruptor, is the name that is going around in the spectrum of discussions in Hearthstone. The Old God is more tilted towards being a finisher card, and a devastating one at that. Especially if your deck is themed towards Deathrattle.
With the arrival of the Standard format, quite a few of decent Deathrattle minions will be taken out. Dark Cultist, Voidcaller, Haunted Creeper, Mad Scientist, Nerubian Egg, Deathlord, Sludge Belcher, Feugen, Stalagg, Mechanical Yeti, Piloted Shredder, Piloted Sky Golem, Sneed’s Old Shredder and Toshley – all these will be taken out of the set. The remaining ones are not exactly noteworthy.
This turns into a problem for N’Zoth. The Old God would require a certain amount of at least decent Deathrattle minions so that it could stand out as a good finisher. We can hope for Whispers of the Old Gods to hold some of these. Otherwise, N’Zoth might become just a Wild-buster.
