Rise of the Floodborn Card Reveals: Hercules – Divine Hero and Weight Set

Here are two new card reveals from Rise of the Floodborn and they go together just perfectly. The first is Hercules revealed by Disney Lorcana's Instagram and the other is his weight set, revealed by Mushu Report.

Hercules - Divine Hero
Floodborn · Hero · Prince · Deity
Cost: 6 (inkable)
Strength: 6
Willpower: 3
Lore: 2
Text: Shift 4 (You may pay 4 ⬡ to play this on top of one of your characters named Hercules.)
Resist +2 (Damage dealt to this character is reduced by 2.)
Rarity: Rare

Weight Set
Cost: 3 (inkable)
Text: Training Whenever you play a character with 4 ✸ or more, you may pay 1 ⬡ to draw a card.
Rarity: Rare

These two cards work together, which is, of course very thematic. I think Hercules - Divine Hero is a solid card. The Resist keyword is very good on a character with high Strength. And with him having Shift 4 means you can get him out on turn 4 and he will be able to banish pretty much anything on board at that point and survive.

The Weight Set seems a bit slow as a card draw engine. I would like it a lot better if you didn't have to pay the 1 extra ink each time to get the draw. We've seen a similar card in the first set in Ursula's Shell Necklace and it isn't seeing any serious play. And in an ink that already has access to A Whole New World, I'm not sure this card is good enough.


An avid player of card games since he got hooked on the Star Wars CCG back in his teens, Phil "gutshot" Bicking is excited to share his years of expertise to players of Lorcana.
