Now I got a problem with all these awesome cards... I recently made a Warlord spellbook with current avaible cards. But these new cards are so nice that I WILL HAVE TO include them... But I don't know what to ditch to make them fit in my spellbook! ;)

I note that on Standard Bearer, Gurmash is described as a Warlord, even though here he is a Sergeant.

On Hail of Stones and Hurl Boulder, Gurmash is a Warmaster.

The preview talks about "Fire Weaving" for the new warlock. Since curse weaving allows you to regain curses, my guess is that fire weaving allows you to regain fire spells.

Also, this amulet is pretty awesome. Burn everything!

Edit: There is also a lot of synergy with Adramelech's Touch here - curse them with the touch, then burn them with the amulet, then use the touch to keep those burns on them.

ACG I'm right there with you on the synergy. They said when they posted Adramelech's Touch that it'd have synergy with other cards to be previewed and this is obviously one of them ;D Oh I can't wait to set people on fire.

The Fire Weaving is also a very interesting sounding effect I agree.

My guess for fireweaving is the alt warlock can take back all her curses if the target dies of burns.  Anyone else have a guess?

When a creature with a burn token die she can transfer one (or all?) burn token on another creaturr in the same zone.

With each preview, the Pyromancer in me is getting more and more excited... Particularly in the hopes for a "Burnthirsty"  trait

Really good idea.  Might be too good though...  I feel like the warlock was designed to be good because of his duel training and high life, not his abilities.  I only use bloodreaper once a game at most, and curseweaving is not useful most of the time.  A warlock with good abilities would be strong.

The current Warlock suffers from an unfavouable meta. Most books use either only Elites, non-living creatures, or both. Each one of those hurts one of his abilities (non-living probably hurts the most, since the best curses say "Living Creature" as a target). If the meta moves away from those, the current Warlock will be a beast (assuming we see some new demons, of course).
