View Full Version : New ability #2 - Fire Burst

So, what’s your reaction when your opponent plays a Juggernaut on the battlefield and you have nothing you can play against this threat?

And when his twin brother appears beside him, what do you do?


This evolved version of the of the Juggernaut has the “Fire Burst” ability that deals 2 damage to all creatures in the same row when he dies.

This new family member isn't as easy going as his little brothers, but his raw power can’t be ignored by the enemy! The Inferno faction already had some of the most powerful creatures, but this is taking the game to a whole new level…

On the other hand, he hasn't got very many health points. This is where the new Fire Burst ability becomes really interesting.
At least, if he’s killed...


...He’ll inflict damage to all the creatures in front of him.


He can kill a Ghost Dragon in one blow or attack a Fate Weaver and die with her from her retaliation (that’s a whole 9 points of damage). Whatever the case may be, getting rid of this creature will not be an easy choice to make even if it’s an absolute necessity!

Inferno “rush” decks is one of the most played decks right now. The Hellfire Juggernaut brings a new philosophy to the Inferno gameplay.
With a few low level control spell and fortune cards, this new creature can become one of the most emblematic creatures in the slower Inferno decks.

In the right hands he will be killing more heroes than you can count!

OMG, new goodies. Wasnt expecting this at all.

I wonder who is that little guy with 3/0/2 stats. With that card, Inferno is confirmed to have at least 3 new cards as faction in Void Rising.

Woah, this is gonna be sick.

In the one of the screenshots, Fate Weaver seems to have full health and 8 hit points!

I want to read some change-logs now!! :)

3 Health will make him a glass cannon that might not fire even once... Pao Deathseeker (which would kill Pao and allow opponent to place another creature in his place), Striking Fury, Pit Fiend (those two wouldn't even be affected by his ability), Chainlightning, Sunburst, Blizzard, Geyser, Fire Trap, Curse of Netherworld and probably other cards (not mentioning combos) can just one shot him, most of them costing less than 5 resource. And I guess Fire Burst will affect friendly units as well, so you can't really put a shooter behind him.

Sorry for all the negativity, but I am completely not excited about this creature, even as an Inferno player. I liked Wanizame much more.

However, the ability itself might be interesting on lower cost creature to force your opponent to kill your unit and lose his to Burst.

It won't hurt ally units. Look at first screen, this little guy above did not get dmg (or just he has some resists...)
Does not matter, sorry, how can I remove post? :P

You are mixing row(horizontal) with line(vertical). The ability works for row, so little guy above wouldn't be affected anyway and that's why the two units in front of HJ disappears in 2nd screenshot.

I for one think Shikao is just being negative.

I like it
certainly not LOVE it , but it's a fine ally , with a fine ability .
I hole the 3/0/2 creature is at 2 cost . seems like the new rush ally of choice .

I dislike the fact they may nerf weaver ... it already felt weaker then vampire in some ways .
mhmm ..
