Level 60, Human Fire Mage

Get In My Belly!


30 Health and a power that makes it 2 resources cheaper to swing your weapon (one time). 

That sounds decent, so let’s look at his support cards…


Warrior Abilities… Gorebelly loses access to Last Stand, but is able to use Mortal Strike.

Battle Shout, Rend, and SUNDER ARMOR  -  all very nice and cost effective.  The other warrior abilities are only so-so, but pretty cheap.  He only has one ability (Charge) which lets him draw additional cards.


Personally, I like Horde allies better than Alliance (in general).  And, warriors get access to a lot of nice weapons and armor. 


My ratings…


Sealed: 4.00 (Assumption here is that any 6 boosters will NOT have enough abilities to make your hero a shoe in, but the warrior will be more attractive due to his array of weapons and armor.)
Constructed: 3.50
Casual: 3.50
Raid: 2.50
(ok – I haven’t even read the raid rules yet, but Warriors keep aggro off of their allies and soak up damage.  In the card game, this means Protector.  So you’re going to need rely on your ability cards since the Warrior doesn’t have this innately.)


Pleasant days and pleasant nights.

Uratoh Gorebelly, Orc Warrior Hero
30 Health
1, Flip Gorebelly: You pay 3 less the next time you strike with a melee weapon this turn.

Gorebelly's the Arms hero, meaning he can use Mortal Strike, a rather nice card. I like it better than the Protection warrior card at least, due to its

ease of use...In any case, I think Gorebelly makes out a lot better than Warrax, simply due to the environment of cards Horde has. Alliance is pretty

big on Protector, while Horde has notably fewer, allowing Gorebelly to make use of a lot of the 'glass jaw' hordeites out there. Plus, he has Rak Skyfury.

His ability combos well with the aformentioned Rak, use it, strike for 3 less (for a net reduction of 2), and then play Rak to repeat (though paying full Strike this time). Of the two warriors, I like him better due both to his Talent ability and the ally pool the Horde has access to.

Constructed: 5/5
Gorebelly can go for the throat, combined with cheap allies like Kagra and Bragg, with a 'no mercy' approach. Be sure to put in enough weapons and armor, the one drawback to Warriors is they need more of it than anyone else.

Sealed: 1/5
A stark contrast...the flip side to being able to use all those weapons and equipment is you really need them to make him work...

Draft: 2.5/5
At least in Draft you can probably get him a good axe or somesuch.

Ahh the better of the two warriors in my opinion. Gorebelly allows you to reduce your weapon strike by 3 the next time you strike with a melee weapon this turn. This has some great potential with things like Annihilator, Wraith Scythe, Truesilver champion, The Cruel Hand Of Timmy and Brain Hacker. All are decent weapons, depends on the way you want to go but could make one of your turns huge. I like all those options with this guy. I'm still not overly happy with the draw warriors seem to have, but I do have hope it gets better in upcoming releases. I really think warriors could be strong decks if you can find the right combo with them.


Level 60



Hello people , welcome to the second week of heroes starting with the Orc warrior Gorebelly.

With the flip that i consider to be the most useless of , you can save two resources if you attack with your hero. This could be useful early , if it wasn't for the fact that you probably don't want to attack with your hero early since you have better things to do early.

Beign arms allows him to play Mortal strike , a decent card in my opinion.

Standing on his 30 HPs , gorebelly is a decent hero overall 2/5
