Worldwalker LoR Spoilers Day 10: Variety Pack
Some days are good, some days are bad, and some days you just have to burn it all down.
I’m Jordan “WhatAmI” Abronson and we’re not quite to that last bit yet, but before Annie shows up we’ve got a few of her loyal followers ready to support her. Let’s check them out.
To see the rest of the Worldwalker reveals, head to our Spoiler page where they’ll be revealed each day until its official release.
If you’d like to see our expert breakdowns for the cards, check out the rest of our reveal articles.
Well the theme may be pointing towards Annie, but the abilities look to be pretty solidly Jhin. This is an extra Proc towards Jhin’s level up once a turn and will make that flip come insanely fast.
On top of that, we’ve just got a solid burnout tool. Ballistic Bot has shown us how powerful just pinging in for one point of damage a turn can be, and in the right archetype we won’t even have to pay a mana to do it.
Manasoul student has a deceptively powerful effect and I will expect to see this card played in multiple different archetypes. Get your Mystic Shots ready to deal with them because you’re going to need them.
Well Arachnoid Sentry has seen play throughout the entirety of its existence and it just got a new best buddy. I think it’s hilarious that this little guy has fearsome and the spider doesn’t, but that’s just how the web falls sometimes.
This seems like a solid addition to many Ezreal or Swain decks, and may even see some play in Fearsome aggro archetypes. We’ll need to do some serious testing to figure out if this is better than Arachnoid Sentry by default, but my money is still on the spider.
The 3/2 stat line is something that people consistently underestimate, and while this will ping in more often, it doesn’t create as huge tempo swings, or block as well. Still, this is a solid card and I would be surprised if the slinger fails to find some kind of home.
So the first obvious connection that gets made here is to Assembly Bot. Whenever you do the thing it gets bigger. You pump it up and up and eventually you get a monstrous threat to beat face with. That one has only ever been a meme.
However, there’s one key difference here. Overwhelm. That one simple line of text makes this card a massive threat that will be impossible to ignore. And because it trigger off of skills in the right deck it will get pumped simply by existing while you do what you wanted to do anyway.
This little three mana monstrosity is going to be a thorn in the side of any deck without Challenger or Vulnerable effects to deal with it efficiently. Think of all the games Crowd Favorite has crushed out of Discard Aggro and you’ll be in the right ball park for The Prefect’s potential.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask WhatAmI during his streams (Tuesday-Thursday around 3PM PST and weekends for tournaments).
