Hearthstone Blackrock Mountain: Dragon Egg and Dragonkin Sorcerer examined

Blizzard today unveiled two more members of the 31-card set which Hearthstone‘s upcoming Blackrock Mountain expansion will introduce. Firstly, Dragon Egg, an aptly titled and rather unassuming 1-drop. Essentially a smaller Grim Patron (discussed in an earlier examination), Dragon Egg is crying out for buffs and pings.
