New Paladin spell will take the steam out of any board
A new Paladin spell from The Boomsday Project has been unveiled.
The card is the latest to be revealed from Hearthstone's next expansion, as community personalities and sites show off new additions to the game coming very soon.
Shrink Ray is a five mana Paladin spell. When it's played it sets the attack and health of all minions in play to one. That's enemy and friendly minions.
Obviously Paladin already has Equality, which has been a popular spell in the deck for most the game's history when paired with Consecrate. Similarly Sunkeeper Tarim is very powerful—but that's mostly because of its dual purpose of turning Silver Hand Recruits into 3/3s. This seems like it might be too expensive, and doesn't actually clear the board like Equality combos. Maybe it has a home in Odd Paladin as a recovery tool, but that seems a stretch.
The Boomsday Project is the second expansion of the current Standard year, the Year of the Raven. It will add 135 new cards to the game, including new keywords like Magnetic. It is currently available to pre-order, with all the cards becoming available on Aug. 7.
