Yesterday saw the reveal of two Mage cards, Servant of Yogg-Saron and Faceless Summoner. There have now been sixty three cards revealed. Blizzard have announced a live stream on April 21, and it seems likely we will get a mass reveal on that date.

Faceless Summoner is an efficient way to put a lot of stats on the board. Although the summoned card will not trigger Battlecry, the Summoner still represents value in its most raw form. It seems likely that this will be a very highly picked Arena card, especially with it being common, and will see testing in Aggro and Value Mage Standard decks.

Servant of Yogg-Saron is another Mage card with a random effect. For it to be of value, the Battlecry will need to be worth about 1 mana. Although the randomness will be a net positive due to cards that don't target, such as Animal Companion and Force of Nature, it will likely not be consistent enough to see constructed play even if it covers the 1 mana of value.

Deathwing - Dragonlord and Embrace the Shadow Here.
Thistle Tea and Twilight Summoner Here.
Wisps of the Old Gods and Soggoth the Slitherer Here.
Cho'Gall and Possessed Villager Here.
Yogg-Saron and Spreading Madness, plus lore Here.
Blood Warriors and Call of the Wild Here.
Hammer of Twilight, Mire Keeper, Blood of The Ancient One Here.

inb4 Servant of Yogg-Saron on turn ten, Astral Communion. By the way, using FoN as an example is maybe not good because FoN costs 6, which is more than the cost limit.

Faceless summoner looks like a bit stronger Sky Golem. I believe it will see play in budget decks in constructed as well as in arena. Maybe if Blizz nerfs Doomsayer to 3 mana, things will get interesting.

Why would they nerf doomsayer?

Because Freeze mage loses basically no cards with standard mode. There are multiple cards that can be nerfed to make freeze mage weaker and one of them is Doomsayer. Nerfing Doomsayer by one mana wouldn't ruin the deck, but would weaken it enough to make space for other decks, in my opinion.

      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).

      This week's Tavern Brawl is a repeat of Double Deathrattler Battler. It is a Brawl where you use your own cards to build a deck. Every Deathrattle will trigger twice.
      Although this is a repeat Brawl, it has been a long time since it was last used, September 2015 in fact, and many things in the game have changed since then. In that regard it can be treated as a fresh Brawl. I would like to see this idea of waiting a long time between reusing a Brawl be implemented more often, to help keep them fresh.
      On top of trying to win games, I expect lots of people to have fun experimenting with Weasel Tunneler, as many of its interactions do not work correctly, as per our previous article.

      It does seem as if cards from the Curse of Naxxramas adventure will be very good in this Brawl. Baron Rivendare doesn't stack however, meaning you don't get four times the Deathrattles if he is in play!

      YouTuber, Disguised Toast, is never far from the front of Hearthstone science, and his latest video is spectacular. This video investigates the strange interactions caused by Weasel Tunneler's Deathrattle.
      Weasel Tunneler's Deathrattle seems simple enough, it reads: Shuffle this minion into your opponent's deck. However, when tested by Disguised Toast, it turns out that even this simple looking text can result in rather odd results. The ordering of other Deathrattles on the board, and effects by other cards on Deathrattles is what makes it so unpredictable. Take a look for yourself!
      The fact your deck displays as full, no matter how many cards left, is probably the strangest interaction of all. Even Toast doesn't  attempt to describe how that one happens.

      Blizzard have updated the breakdown of the amount each gang's classes are being played.
      On their Gadgetzan page, there is an infographic showing who controls the town of Gadgetzan today. The percentages are worked out by how often each class is being used. Even with the huge amount of Pirate Warrior on ladder at the moment, the Grimy Goons are unable to control the city! That honour goes, currently, to the Kabal. With people having success with Reno Warlock AND Reno Priest, it will be fun to see if they hold that position in the coming days.
