Jubilee Arcspark

Ally

Alliance

Cost: 3

Attack: 3

Health: 3

 

Untargetable
When Jubilee Arcspark is revealed from your deck by a quest, draw a card.

 

This card is good, but will have a hard time finding a place in the current tier 1 decks.

They could replace Jeleana Nightbreeze, but then you need to play more cards to seek them out, cards like Kibler’s Exotic Pets.

 

Sealed: 3/5
Constructed: 4/5
Casual: 4/5

woot!  new cards!  Let us start, shall we??

Jubilee Arcsparck (Alliance)

3 Cost, 3 ATK (Arcane), 3 Health

Ally- Gnome Mage

Untargetable

When Jubilee Arcsparck is revealed from your deck by a quest, draw a card.

OK... Um... lets start off by saying I like the pic and name... deffinetly a gnome name.  I love it.  On to the cards abilites.  Untargetable means that this like gnome won't be getting popped anytime soon with a random Fireball.  She's a 3/3 for 3, which isn't bad at all.  As for her other ability, I don't know how many quests there are that allow you to reveal cards from your deck, but if she gets revealed you get to draw a card.  That could be pretty cool, I think.

Sealed: 4/5  She's a 3/3 for 3, so she's a decent Ally even without her other ability.  Oh, and she is untargetable.

Constructed: 3/5  Her stats and untargetable make her a solid ally, but I'm not so sure about her second ability.

Casual: 3/5

Raid: 2/5  Not totally uselss, but unless her second ability has some serious uses, she won't see much raid play.

Now here is an interesting little card. Let's first look at it's stats: 3 Cost, 3 Attack and 3 Health. Not super, but not bad either. But we aren't running this card for it's stats.

Given that Zapped Giants, Kibler's Exotic Pets, Big Game Hunter, and the new One Draenei's Junk Quest cards are pretty much seen in every deck, depending on it's build, it's pretty easy to pull off Arcsparks effect.

What's more, by triggering her effect, you turn a +1 situation into a +2. Oh, and did I mention she was Untargetable?

While I feel that cards like Warden Ravella have more utility for the same cost, the simple fact is that outside of a Draenei Shaman deck, Alliance decks lack the raw draw power afforded to Horde decks. Will Arcspark be able to fill the void? It's really hard to say, but I can tell you that Arcspark is a step in the right direction.

------------------------------------

Sealed:
4/5 - Draw Combos are more difficult to pull-off without the right cards, but the chances of getting some Zapped Giants, Kiblers, etc.. are pretty good.

Constructed:
4/5 - +1's are always good, and Alliance needs all the draw power it can get.

Casual:
4/5 - see constructed

Raid:
4/5 - see constructed

JUBILEE ARCSPARK

 

Ahh Jubilee.  Alliance gets its first 3 drop Untargetable.  But the BIG question is whether this card will take the place of, or at least support the other Alliance 3 drop staple Parvink?

 

For stats Jubilee probably wins- 3-3 untargetable vs a 2-2 protector.  Ya, the protector is great and you don’t need more than 2 attack to down most 3 drop allies with 2 health, but Jubilee has that extra attack point for those bigger monsters, and won’t die to a 2-1 1-drop.  The best thing is the untargetable.  If you run all untargetable allies, which is a possibility after FOO if you just go with untargetable beat-down, you’ll only have to worry about protecting your hero from being targeted to stop most all ability damage.  But I digress.

 

Now the effect.  Parvink just gets you a card where Jubilee needs help.  Draw a card if she is revealed from your deck by a quest.  First of all, you need quests that reveal cards instead of ones that just draw you cards.  You can miss a lot with Kibler’s or Zapped, etc..  Second, that results in you showing the cards in your deck to your opponent.  That means all the ones going to the bottom of the deck as well as the ones you’ll be playing.  So if you run a lot of reveal quests, your opponent will learn a lot about your deck, the cards you won’t be drawing because they’re at the bottom, and what’s in your hand.  That’s a lot of information to give up for the possibility of drawing cards through Jubilee.  Third, at best, Jubilee is best left in the deck to be revealed again by another quest.  If you do a Kibler’s and reveal a couple allies with Jubilee, you could draw from Jubilee after you get your other ally with the quest.  Leave Jubilee on the bottom for later revealing again.  But to use her you need to shuffle your deck somehow to get her off the bottom. 

So I don’t know if I’d give up my Parvink for her yet, but maybe in a deck with a bunch of allies, Kibler’s, and the new Quest for later review, One Draenei’s Junk.

 

Sealed:             4.0 Good here b/c card draw is tough.

Constructed:     2.5 Eh- Doesn’t beat Parvink for me.

Casual:             3.0 Stick her in an all gnome deck.

Raid:                            2.5 I don’t know.

Jubilee Arcspark
A card with plenty of hype, and the mettle to live up to it. Standard 3-drop stats at 3/3, but with 2 powerful effects. Untargetable is probably one of the best powers in the game, and at 3 health and Untargetable, Jubilee is able to withstand most Area of Effect spells including favourites Chain Lightning and Consecration and the new Shadowfury.
Her unique added effect is just icing on the cake. Kibler's and Draenei Junk can pick her up AND set off her effect to gain an extra card. We all know Kibler's is good, and IMO Junk is even better in the kind of deck Jubilee will be appearing in.
And none of this is hypothetical either. In my testing Jubilee is an absolute pest for opponents, as that pivotal 3 health sets her above her Untargetable predecessors. And it's so satisfying to see her with a quest, and even more satisfying to see your opponent's expression as they think to themself 'lucksackin n00b'.
