"Everything dies. And in our line of work, some things die more than once…

I am not the religious sort, and rather than following the Spider Queen, I prefer simply following in the footsteps of brilliant minds… Archon Belketh was right. The protection of the Seven Cities can be attained through Necromancy if we are diligent. My troops are Undead but shall one day be able to withstand and wield fire.

There are directions to avoid… and Chaos is one of them. Dhamiria’s penchant for destruction made this clear to me. We shouldn’t be mad at her for those setbacks, we should be mad at our own incompetence! How can we hope to prove our worth if a single Demon can undo weeks of work.

I found a wounded Orc, lost in the woods the other day. Kept him for myself. I killed him of course… But then I raised him from the dead and used him as target practice. Never had the chance to really throw a fireball at someone before. I must have raised him from the dead a hundred times since then… The accursed mongrel is suffering, but he should be glad his wretched life has served a higher purpose.

This is what we should spend our time doing; being exceptionally efficient with our craft. It requires us to understand as much about what destroys us as what makes us Undead.

Everything must die more than once."

Adar-Malik likes to kill things, and his knowledge of Dark and Fire Magic makes him quite effective in that regard. However, being a Necromancer, you can expect his ability to be also about raising things back from the dead.

Adar malik (Fire -sovreighn) Caller of doom.. cheasy name indeed...

on the other hand - intersting perspective and a solid evil look about him...

hope we won't need 120 premium cards from the new exp to get him...

firebolts in necro? cool
but dark + fire is still no counter to otks...
unless otks become unviable in the next expansion (and i doubt it), this hero will be viable only on fortune builds

Adramelech, also called Adrammelech, Adramelek or Adar-malik, was a form of sun god related to Moloch. The centre of his worship was the town of Sepharvaim. According to the cult was brought by the Sepharvite colonists into Samaria: "the Sepharvites burnt their children in the fire to Adrammelech and Anammelech, the gods of Sepharvaim". - like Moloch. The melech element means "King" in Hebrew.
Baal Adramelch (his name "Baal" means "Lord") is described as a son and murderer of Sennacherib, king of Assyria in II Kings 19:37 and Isaiah 37:38. In later times, he is associated with the Moloch of Carthage. This often leads to the concept that children were sacrificed to him. The concept of child sacrifice via burning them or placing them within a heated bronze statue of the god comes from Greek accounts and is not historically verifiable as no archaeological proof of such a large, bronze statue exists.
Maybe he can raise puppet from opponent's graveyard
and maybe he's another 1Might 1Magic hero.

But it's a good start to know there is doubtless NO DUNGEON

To say the LEAST,
For old factions, there will be 5*1 Hero cards, 5*3+5 Creature cards, 7*3 Spell cards, 5*2+4 Fortune cards and 4 Event cards
103-5-18-21-14-4=41

And a new faction will have 4+22+10+1+3+2=42 cards

Though they can hide a card for some achievement,
I think this LEAST will be dull if comes true.

So after champions, lords, seekers and invokers we are going to get a set of callers too ? Also his name and pose refers more to inferno than necro. Looks awesome though

Maybe Academy instead of Dungeon? They would use air magic which no faction uses as their primary right now.
