Kazakus Custom Spell Mechanic

 

Kazakus is a tri-class legendary minion that’s part of the expansion Mean Streets of Gadgetzan due for release in December 2016.

The card is part of the tri-class Kabal faction, so it’s playable by Mage, Priest, and Warlock classes. The battlecry introduces a new mechanic to the game. opens up a series of custom spell options to allow you to make a custom spell.

By playing Kazakus you open up a series of custom spell options to allow you to make a custom spell. There are three parts to building the spell, choosing the mana cost, then adding two effects.

How does Kazakus Work?

Here is a video released by Blizzard at Blizzcon 2016 showing the card in play.

Mana Cost Choice for the Custom Spell

As you can see, when you play Kazakus you have the option to choose between three cards. The higher the mana cost the more powerful the effect is.

Kazakus Custom Spell First Choice

First Effect Choice for the Custom Spell

You’re then given three more options based on your first decision. If you choose a 10 mana card you have three 10 mana choices to add to the spell.

You can choose fro options that include doing x damage to minions, drawing cards, copy cards from your opponent’s deck, summoning minions that have died, and more.

Kazakus Custom Spell Second Choice

Second Effect Choice for the Custom Spell

You are also given a second choice of three effects to add to the spell. This opens up a wide range of possibilities to help you deal with the current board state.

You can combine two different effects and do some crazy things, and it makes a lot of spells possible that we have previously not been able to do with these classes.

Thijs Card Review Mean Streets of Gadgetzan Part 1

This the Thijs Card Review Mean Streets of Gadgetzan Part 1. It’s always interested to get an pro players insight into the new cards and how they think they will change the META.

Thijs always has really insightful views on cards. I like the way he looks at them to see how they can be played, in what type of decks, how new decks might be formed, etc.

Enjoy.

What Are Tri-Class or Multi-Class Cards in Hearthstone?

With information being released about the latest Hearthstone expansion, Mean Streets of Gadgetzan, the introduction of tri-class cards into the game is pretty exciting.

But what are tri-class or multi-class cards in Hearthstone going to do? Simply put, these are cards that can be played by three of the classes.

Along with the theme of the release, there are three ‘factions’. Within each faction there are three of the normal classes:

Grimy Goons

The cards with this faction are playable by Hunter, Paladin, and Warrior.

Kabal

The cards with this faction are playable by Mage, Priest, and Warlock.

Jade Lotus

The cards with this faction are playable by Druid, Rogue, and Shaman.

Kabal Courier – A Kabal Faction Card (Mage, Priest, Warlock)

Kabal Courier HS Card

This is one of the examples we’ve been given a look at before the full release.

As you can see from the icon at the top left of the card, along with the card text, it’s playable by three classes.

This opens up some crazy new possibilities that we have not seen before.

Sure, Priest have Thoughtsteel to use cards from another class, and Warlocks can play Renounce Darkness, but being able to discover and choose a card is quite different.
