Breaking Wind - Patch #25

Team Horizon

Nov 20, 2019

Featuring Gale Chop (previously Wing Boots) redesigned into a new bounce and silence effect! We've been holding this in for a while and are super excited to finally release this into the Air... Element! 🤭

This week introduces changes to the draw mechanic; all Beyond-Deck draws now cause Fatigue Damage. Mouse overs & action previews are much more accurate and rich (we have them for spells too)!

Take careful note that when you draw from your Prism, whether by an effect or because your deck is empty, your Hero will lose 1 Life for each card drawn. The strain of generating cards from outside one’s deck is taxing on a SkyWeaver, so watch out!

Cards

As usual, not all changes listed, such as prism shifts or name changes.

Tomb Stone - Dust your top dead unit to summon Zomboid. Give this spell to your hero with +1c.

School of Fish - Summon two 1c units.

Charkram - Do 1 Damage to target unit and the enemy hero. Give this spell to your hero with +1c.

Stole the theme from old Charkram.

Doom Shroom (91)

Doom Shroom - Death: Do 1 Damage to enemies.

    Health: 6 => 5

Doom Shroom is hard to trade into profitably, nerfing HP to make that trade easier, and to nerf the Doom Shroom generators.


Leonowldo (582)

Leonowldo -

    Attack: 2 => 1

    Health: 3 => 4

Stat tweak to do a better job at defense, offense focused more on spell.


Krystal (621)

Krystal - Death: Give your hero Big Mana Potion.

    Text: Death: Give your hero Mana Potion. => Death: Give your hero Big Mana Potion.

Haven't seen Krystal used much, curious how this buffed version does.


Spite & Malice (442)

Spite & Malice - Play: Summon a stealth copy of this unit.

    Cost: 5 => 6

Cost nerf, since the draw off this can be pretty big. Curious if the incentives to buff / discount still leave this with a deck.

Stole the Guard buff from Earthweaver, straight buff here.

Rebuffed with wither, better removal for 4c.

Nerf to pressure but buff to stickyness.


Squiddy (980)

Swapped stats to make it more fragile, though still rough to get hit by.


Hive (541)

Hive - End Turn: Gets Zap. Summon B Unit.

    Text: End Turn: Summon B Unit. => End Turn: Gets Zap. Summon B Unit.

    Attack: 1 => 0

Tweaked to have recurring Zap rather than 1atk.


Lightning Vial (448)

Lightning Vial - Do 3 Damage to a random enemy. If lethal, dust it.

    Keywords: None => lifesteal

Small buff to face damage payoff.

Nerf with likely buff to Charkram.


Snakeweaver (978)

Glorious Mane - Target unit becomes light. Give it guard and +2/+2.

    Text: Target unit becomes light. Give it +2/+2. => Target unit becomes light. Give it guard and +2/+2.

Straight buff, though still under review. (I want to design a better reason to change a unit's element.)

    Element: air => light

Swapped elements of Blind (light) and Silence (air).


Think Alike => Mind Stone (1021)

Earth Warden - Summon: Conjures an earth spell.

    Text: Summon: Conjures an earth spell. Give units in your hand guard. => Summon: Conjures an earth spell.

    Attack: 1 => 0
