As of this writing the Eternal Masters full spoiler has officially been revealed, and while I initially had the idea to look at it from a horde perspective, I discovered that there wasn’t a lot in the set for Horde, so instead I’m going to give you my thoughts on the set, whether they are Horde related or not.
