That would delay it a turn without Prep/Coin but not much else. The deck's already built on playing hella cards per turn on combo turns.

Delaying it even 1 turn would be great, but now they need even more combo pieces to pull it off. I'd rather have it be a minion like the warlock nether portal on board, that way it couldnt be prepped out, but I'll take it. I don't really hate quest rogue, but I do find it to be basically a single player deck like pirate warrior

It loses if your deck/hand is "aggro enough" and wins otherwise, in my experience. The concept is cool also, just a little extreme when there are 4 1-drop charges in standard right now.

Expansion leaks were pretty tight this year, but the chinese official website leaked some stuff about 12 hours early. Should be something like "Knights of the Frozen Throne"



https://fat.gfycat.com/MenacingMelodicGlassfrog.webm


All the hearthstone classes are basically undead versions of themselves. Per Lore, when The Lich King kills a person, he can raise them to fight for him. Here everyone has the blue eyes, indicating they actually are under the lich king control. So I expect deathrattles/undead/ice to play a big theme here.

Whats unknown is if the Lich King is Arthas, or Bolvar Fordragon(yeah, the pally legendary). In the story, Arthas has always been the iconic lich king, but in World of Warcraft the players raid against Arthas and die, only to be saved by Tirion, who kills Arthas/Breaks the curse, and then was about to become the new Lich King (there must always be a lich king). Instead, Bolvar stepped up and asked for him to take the burden, but swore everyone to secrecy. So, theres the chance that maybe its Bolvar the new Lich King. Or, knowing hearthstone, its an alternate universe where Each of the Hero classes is the new lich king. Who knows.

It should be fun. One thing I expect, is a rarity shake up. They're introducing no duplicate legendary openings, They just doubled gold we earn for 2 weeks, and they alluded to something this expansion... I forsee a lot of class legendaries coming in this set. As well, we're going to get back some Single Player Content; not full on adventures, but still adventure like content along side each full expansion to set the story and hopefully award some cards/packs.

Really excited to see what comes tonight, at the announcement (7 PM Pacific)

Knights of the Frozen Throne. Instead of adding a new death knight class, each of the 9 heroes are corrupted and become death knights, with a new Hero Card for each one. They act like Jaraxxus, but don't modify your existing health: they have a powerful battlecry, add armor, and then alter your hero power. The one announced was Hunter (Deathstalker Rexxar). Its a 6 mana, gain 5 armor, deal 2 damage to all enemy minions, and your hero power becomes "Build a Beast." You discover a beast, then discover a second beast; then you add their stats and mana cost, and add it to your hand as a card. So, for instance, you could combine stonetusk boar (1 mana 1/1 charge) with Bloodfen Raptor (2 mana 3/2) to get a 3 mana 4/3 charge beast card in your hand. You can discover any beast up to 5 mana (thats neutral or hunter) and then make some really awesome beasts.

Also, Lifesteal is going to be prominent (everytime they deal damage, heal you that much) including a priest spell for 2 mana, deal 1 damage to all minions (with lifesteal).  Deathrattle is coming back big, so stuff like Umbra and Priest Quest will be solid.

Overall, I dunno how its going to shake out. They seem like maybe non impactful enough, or maybe too good, but I like the space they're in.

For single player content, theres 9 missions for free. Completing them earns you 1 of the 9 deathknight hero cards (random), and 3 packs. So... yeah should be sweet to experiment.

Too bad the expansion doesnt drop until August, and no new cards expected to announce for 2 weeks :(

I went 7-3 (with the bonus win it gives you), lost because of my arena inexperience (what are the chances Priest has the potion of madness for my gastropod? .... oh. Pretty good it turns out). Not bad. Got 155 gold, a pack and some handful of dust.

Excited for expansion news!

How do you have the time to play lol. I'm at 4-2 on my run right now. This is only the second time I've played arena so I don't expect to get much further.

I do love this one card I'm running - the one with battlecry destroy a minion, deathrattle resummon it. I used it against that minion that does deathrattle do 5 damage to your hero, it was great.

Every deck I've played in this run seems to have cards like that... Strong base stats but a drawback, cards like bittertide Hydra, etc. It's fun to exploit those drawbacks.

I did it over like 2 hours the other night when my family fell asleep early, maybe even longer lol. I drafted Bittertide hydra, it was like an MVP for me actually, hard removal is pretty rare until you get to the higher levels, and just getting in that damage seemed to go a long way.

Blizzard: A 7 mana 5/5 draw 2 cards was too oppressive in Druids, lets bump it down to draw 1

To be fair this is literally years apart.

I'll never forgive them for demolishing Blade Flurry though. It miiiiiight be decent now with all the weapon shenanigans Rogue got but it's been horrible forever.

I mean it was 1 year from the Ancient of Lore nerf to this I believe. Theres something to be said for a classic card vs one that will eventually rotate as well
