Since Crown of the Heavens is a set based on Hyjal, there are bound to be a ton of familiar friendly (and not-so-friendly) faces showing up. What does that mean, you ask? It means awesome artwork done by Cryptozoic's amazing art team of some of your favorite characters.
First, you should see some of the awesome new demon and satyr cards coming with Crown of the Heavens. Cryptozoic had a really cool writeup about the new monster heroes coming in the new set, including a Daughter of Cenarius named Arisella and Iso'rath, servant of the Old Gods. How cool is that? You can play with Iso'rath as your monster hero.
Hordies can get their fill of new Horde-centric ally cards, including the one and only Queen of the Forsaken, Sylvanas, and Nox the Lifedrainer, an adorable goblin warlock. Alliance players should be excited for their contributions to the new expansion set, with allies like Gerrunge the Sadist, a crazy human warlock, and Tyrnade Whisperwind, High Priestess of Elune. I think she's some night elf archer or something? No clue.
Finally, Crypto's Ben Stoll discussed many of the new monster cards coming with Crown of the Heavens, including Keeper of the Grove Remulos and monster hero Cenarius himself. His artwork is really cool, too. Satyrs and ogres round out the mix, but the true highlight of the pack is King Bagurgle, Terror of the Tides, accompanied by the cast of Spongebob Squarepants and an army of murlocs. He is truly the scariest thing beneath the waves.
