hearthstone Hearthstone Card Reveals: Forbidden Flame and Forbidden Torch

1 post in this topic


Spoiler season continues with two more cards today, bringing the total to fifteen. This time, the cards are not connected to C'Thun and bring in a new mechanic. The two cards revealed both allow you to spend all of your mana in a turn.

The two cards are both class cards. One is for Mage and one is for Priest. It will be interesting to see if there is a Forbidden card for each class.


What is important to notice is that you don't have to miss the rest of your turn. You can play your other cards and then play the Forbidden card with the remaining mana. Versatility is often underrated in Hearthstone, and I expect these cards to both be playable in Arena where versatility is very valuable. In constructed, we'll have to wait and see how the meta develops. Not being able to burn face is an important downside in Mage, and Flame Lance hasn't seen significant play for this reason. Forbidden Shaping won't trigger Battlecry effects, and so minions will lose some value. On the upside, the ability to not miss any mana might prove be very powerful, especially in more aggressive decks that don't want to waste the chance to apply more pressure.

      Diablo’s 20th Anniversary will take place in the beginning of 2017 and it will be celebrated in all other Blizzard games. Let’s take a look at the special Diablo-themed Tavern Brawl planned for Hearthstone.
      During the release of the latest Hearthstone patch, a new Diabloesque card back was discovered. According to an article by Hearthpwn, where we found all this information, this card back is  tied to an upcoming Tavern Brawl called “[The] Dark Wanderer”.

      The chalk board, heroes, hero powers and some cards of minions, spells and secrets of this upcoming Brawl have been datamined and you can find them in the same Hearthpwn article. The two players will take on the roles of the Dark Wanderer and the Cow King, two figures we all recognise from Diablo II. Presumably, the card back will be rewarded after your first victory in the Brawl.
      We are expecting this new Tavern Brawl during the first weeks of January 2017 – just like the other Diablo celebrations in Blizzard games (most notably in World of Warcraft).
