Yes – you read that correct – the DMArmada/WDA Worlds stream has just dropped a sweet vid with a batch of card spoilers for the upcoming Dungeons & Dragons: Trouble in Waterdeep set.
The original spoiler vid for these is HERE.
On to the spoilers – I’ve got the screen grabs and some first thoughts for y’all…
Xanathar – Eye on Skullport
This card is pretty tribal relevant with that game-text, as the likelihood of enough Adventurers in a Modern Constructed format is too low to make this useful. Seems pretty sweet for a draft though.
Gazer – Evil Familiar
A two cost Intimidate card is 100% going to see play. In Open Constructed anything NOT a D&D character is guaranteed not to have any Experience Tokens so you can fill your boots with these to be clearing pests out of the field on your turn. With 1 defense on the first two levels you can get this guy KO’d very easily for some rinse/repeat or you could check out the global on…
Nihiloor – Plotting
Wow. Just straight up take control of your opponent’s character AND a really useful global – that’s a lovely card. Your opponent isn’t going to shift him anytime soon with those defense stats either. Bit painful on purchase and fielding costs though.
Grill – Xanathar Guild Bodyguard
A little weenie that you can KO with impunity for some ramp AND Churn. Loving this. I like that it’s a Bolt character too – I’m gonna give this one a try with the ‘Nihiloor’ global and ‘Jubilee – Olympic Gymnast’ for some early game ping-y fun.
Intellectual Devourer – Mind Flayer’s Pet
I like this one and can see it being a nice little addition to a team that uses a recurring Basic Action/Action die, but can’t shake the feeling it will end up one of those you put on the team but never actual buy. Kinda like that ‘Noxious Blightbringer’ that does a ping for Wild energy expenditure. Looks good on the surface, but probably won’t go anywhere.
There you go folks – I’ll keep posting as & when there’s more to report out of Worlds from rainy Manchester, UK.
Any thoughts on the spoilers?
