Follow in the footsteps of the legion with the new expansion for the World of Warcraft card game. Here’s our review.

The World of Warcraft card game keeps on rolling with new cards and powers. This time the game of battling fantasy heroes brings you a pile of new stuff based around a bunch of demons on a rampage. It has heroes teaming up with villains to put some smack on these heck-spawned baddies. What's in this set? Is it any good? Find out with Gary's card game review!

Marching Along: What's New?

This set follows the march of the Burning Legion, a rampaging pack 'o demons, through the city of Shattarath in the Outlands. There are 319 cards to collect in 19-card Booster Packs so it's a big set with a bundle of new powers and abilities. Here's the 411.
  • Aldor/Scryer - Cards from the different factions can't be in the same deck, but either can go in Alliance or Horde decks.
  • Loot Cards - Three new loot cards are waiting to be found!
  • Sabotage - Special attacks against that let you mess up abilities, equipment and even resources.
  • Inspire - Allies with this ability let you untap certain cards on your opponent's turn.
  • Demons - It's the march of the Burning Legion, which is a pack of demons, and this set is full of demons and anti-demon stuff. Including...
  • Doom Lord Kazzak - The 13/13 demon lord of the march is huge! If only he didn't eat all your non-demon allies each turn...
  • Phat Lewt

    19 cards per pack = four more than normal, and they're the same price! Not only that, but this set is packed full of demons and they're just plain cool. The new Sabotage and Inspire powers are good, giving you new options in battle and working really well in multiplayer games.

    Foot Sores!

    Having more factions to work with when you're building decks is a great way to get a headache! It also becomes even more important to have Protector allies to block the saboteurs so you'll need to tweak your decks to be more defensive.

    Worth the Walk?

    The extra cards in each pack is a big boost for players on a budget and being able to use the two new factions with Horde or Alliance decks makes this a fantastic set for players on a budget. It's harder to collect the loot cards and you really need Protectors, but this set still kicks butt all the way from Kil'Jaeden to the Outlands!

    Thumbs Up:

  • More cards in every pack!
  • Lots of demons, whoo!
  • Two factions that can work with Horde or Alliance decks.
  • Sweet Loot Cards, including a rocket you can ride!
  • Doom Lord Kazzak. ZOMG!
  • Thumbs Down:

  • Making decks just got more confusing.
  • You need protector allies or you're in trouble!
