Carlsbad, CA, Tuesday September 15, 2009
Make a Statement with Your Own Scourgewar™ Loot™ Cards!
The Upper Deck Company is pleased to announce that its 10th World of Warcraft™ Trading Card Game’s expansion set – entitled Scourgewar™ – will be released on November 24. TCG players in the online realms have been hard at work in Northrend for almost a year now, with the Wrath of the Lich King letting adventurers land on the frozen continent and take on everything it has to offer. And now the action will be coming to your local game store.
Amid the powerful new Death Knight cards and other secrets Upper Deck has waiting for players in this next expansion, you’re probably dying to get a look at the newest additions to the Loot™ card assortment. Without further adieu, let’s dive right in.
Tiny – Say hello to our newest little friend. Tauren and Draenei, now we have the ultimate irony you’ve been waiting for. The newest super-common Loot™ card will give you a mini mount that will carry you around as fast as his little legs will take him—which isn’t any faster than your character can run, but hey, it’s the thought that counts. Each code will be redeemed for 50 uses, so you’ll be able to get lots of work out of Tiny for each card you get your hands on.
Tuskarr Kite – One of the coolest factions to make their appearance in Wrath of the Lich King, the Tuskarr are a Walrus-like species of humanoids that like to fish. One of the things you’ve probably noticed while running around and doing their errands is the cool decorations they have around their towns. With Tuskarr Kite, you’ll be able to own your own decorative kite that functions just like the Onyxia Kite from March of the Legion’s Kiting Loot™ card. This uncommon Loot™ card also counts towards your companion pet achievements, so if you’re still working towards your new pets, the Kite will help too!
Spectral Kitten – The Spectral Tiger is the quintessential Loot™ card for collectors out there, and now they’ll have a little kitten to add to their spectral menagerie. This companion pet comes with tiny little armor to match his size, and lets out a haunting meow when you click on him. Stop to check your mail and it will wait patiently for you, and then run to catch up to you when you head on your way after business has been attended to. As the rare Loot™ card of the expansion, this is one kitty that plenty of fans will want to get their hands on!

And remember all three loot cards are available in Scourgewar booster packs at insert rates equal to recently released booster sets. The “Tiny” mount loot card is available inside of EVERY Scourgewar Epic Collection (1:1 insert rate).
