Video's for academy spoilers!
« on: July 22, 2015, 11:23:35 AM »
There are many spoilers in the video! It's hard to read but here is what I could make out of it.

1) Leather Chausses (equipment): armor +1 for 2 mana, pants are a new thing!

2)  Joined Strength (enchantment): target: animal creature, 2+1 mana, This creature gains melee +1. Whenever this creature is attacked and receives damage, you must transfer 1 of that damage to your mage instead. If this creature is destroyed, you may pay 1 mana to move Joined Strength to a new target in your zone.

3) Wynchwood hound  (creature). Level 1 canine, 5 mana. 0 armor, 7 life. quick attack of 2 dice. While wynchwood hound is in the same zone as 1 or more friendly wynchwood hounds it gains melee +1 and armor +1

4) Slavorg Fang of the first moon (creature). level 4 (sabertooth!!!) cat: 15 mana, 2 armor, 13 life. 4 attack dice, +2 piercing. Legendary, epic, BM only. it costs 2 mana less for each animal creature in your discard pile. at the end of his activation you may pay 2 mana to place a guard token on him. (What an incredible tank!  ;D)

5) this blue guy, cannot read at 1 minute

6) ... gremlin. costs 4 mana, 3 attack dice, cannot read the ability

7) ..cated cockattice(?) 2dice + d12   effect: something with melee +1 and piercing +1

They are good but not amazing. How I understand it, the bonus is only once.

with the bonus compared to the bitterwood fox:
both canine, both 3 attack dice,both 5 mana, both level 1
Hound: 7 life + 1 armor
fox: 5 life + fast

With the bonus he is slightly better, without slightly definitaly worse. For the amazing artwork alone and the better fit with wolves I would use them.

The pet hound is a very strong cheap creature. 7 mana for 3-5 attack dice. 1-2 armor, 10 life.
add the combined strength and for an additional 3 mana you have an extra die and 1 less damage to the hound.
another die for the knife. (4 mana).

In total for 4 spells and 19 mana (starting value) (2x creatures, knife, enchantment) you have:
-the very durable pet hound with 7 attack dice
-The beastmaster attacking with 4 attack dice
- The weaker hound

I can see a very strong rush strategy here. ^^

maybe something like:
19 run 1 + beast ring(2) + Pet hound (6) 11
20 run 2 +  hound(4)   16
25 Redclaw (15) + hound (5) 5

From here on, totems + knife + attacking maybe an occasional enchantment.

This is the best image I could get of his ability off that video. It's really hard to read but perhaps somebody can make it out.

Of course I do know what it does but whats the fun in me telling you  8)

"When you reveal an enchantment with the Dissipate X trait, you may pay mana equal to that spell's Level to place 1 additional Dissipate token on it." 

Or something like that.  Basically lets you pay mana to make Dissipate effects last longer.  The "shrink" card had Dissipate, so this makes sense with the image.

7) ..cated cockattice(?) 2dice + d12   effect: something with melee +1 and piercing +1

I think that's "Redcrested Cockatrice."

See here and here for more spoilers.

Interesting.  Looks like it got updated to "mana equal to the spell's Level" instead of "2 mana" for balance (e.g. to scale with the power of the spell).  Also, not sure about the stats (e.g. are spellbooks 60 or 40 points? did the Wizard stay at 7 mana?).  I wonder if that Satyr Gruff made it through unchanged (aside from artwork).
