Hearthstone’s The Boomsday Project Expansion Unleashes New Mechs and Tech This Summer

Myra's Unstable Element

Called "The Boomsday Project", the new set will be themed around unsafe science projects and will have a particular focus on Mech minions and explosives.

If the concept sounds familiar, that's because it sort of is. Similar to Goblins vs. Gnomes, this expansion focuses on the lighter side of things, with mechs, insane explosions and ridiculous cards. It stars the infamous character Dr. Boom and a cadre of mad scientist buddies making all kinds of risky experiments, promising powerful spells and a reemergence of Mechs.

Though they've been few and far between compared to other minion types in recent expansions, Mech minions will be back in a big way for The Boomsday Project, bolstered by the introduction of the Magnetic keyword. Blizzard's next Hearthstone expansions looks to have been inadvertently leaked and intrepid sites like r/Hearthstone, Hearthpwn, and Hearthstone Top Decks have picked up on it. If two Magnetic minions, such as the Hunter card Spider Bomb, are on the board, they'll meld into one, combining their stats and keywords (not unlike Deathstalker Rexxar's Build-A-Beast ability).

The expansion will also add a series of Omega cards which have special effects if you have 10 mana crystals. In the case of Omega Defender, that bonus is a whopping 10 extra attack. Hearthstone is available on PC, Mac, and mobile platforms.

Speaking of which, it looks like they'll have a new tool to do so. These are powerful spells that affect both players, like the Biology Project. When a card like this is played, it'll be a race to see which player can exploit the advantage fastest.

Headlined by none other than Dr. Boom-aka Dr. 7, and isn't that fitting given the release date-The Boomsday Project will add 135 new cards, including nine Legendary spells, a host of new Mech minions, and the new keywords Omega and Magnetic.

The final, most crazy addition has to be the inclusion of Legendary spells with some insane powers. The first one shown off is a Rogue legendary, Myra's Unstable Element, that draws the rest of your deck. Playing it will let you draw up to 10 cards and still have five mana left to play with, but will put you into fatigue and burn any cards that don't fit in your hand. It does have some good synergy with Fal'Dorei Strider, which summons creatures as you work through your deck. We'll have to wait for more reveals to find out what effect "Dr. Boom, Mad Genius" has when he takes over for Garrosh. A bundle of 50 packs, a free golden Legendary, and a Mecha Jaraxxus card back will be sold for $49.99 - or if you want to go all-in, you can get 80 packs, the free golden Legendary, the Mecha Jaraxxus card back, and the Mecha Jaraxxus Warlock hero himself in a $79.99 bundle.
