Rastakhan’s Rumble is almost upon us, and the set is shaping up to be a huge amount of fun. The broad theme takes us to the Gurubashi Arena (which World of Warcraft players on the Horde side would be familiar with), and to a contest presided over by Rastakhan, king of the Zandalari, and ruler of the great troll empire. Long story short, it’s an excuse for trolls and other warriors to battle it out for glory.
Each class has its own “team”, and these are centred around their “Loa” or beastly deities. Rogue, for instance, are known as Gral’s Sharks, named after their Loa – Gral, the Shark. Each Loa is a legendary minion and accompanied by a Spirit that strengthens what that Loa is attempting to do. The Rogue companion card, Spirit of the Shark, obviously works well the turn before Gral, allowing you to trigger its battlecry twice, not to mention playing into the many great battlecry and combo cards in the game.
