hearthstone Hearthstone: Entire Set Now Revealed on Facebook

4 posts in this topic

20282-hearthstone-entire-set-now-reveale

Lead Designer Ben Brode, and well known caster, Frodan, played four games of Standard Hearthstone using Whispers of the Old Gods cards on stream today. The games were played live against Dean Ayala on Blizzard's official Twitch Channel.


During the games, many new cards were revealed, and after the stream the entire set was spoiled on Facebook. As well as seeing new cards revealed, we also got a look at Yogg-Saron in action for the first time. One thing that became immediately apparent is that many of the spells cast by Yogg-Saron cancel each other out. An Unleash the Hounds early in the chain of spells can be removed by board wipes, and it seems that players should allow for significant diminishing returns after the first few spells. 

The opinion of name players watching the stream seemed to be that Shaman is the big winner in Whispers of the Old Gods. As well as Hallazeal, Master of Evolution, and Thing from Below, which had already been spoiled. There were several new cards spoiled today that also appear to be powerful in the class. Players also felt that although it loses Mad Scientist, Freeze Mage will be one of the strongest decks at the start of the new meta. We will be able to test for ourselves in just a few days from now. The release is scheduled for April 26 on the Americas server, and April 27 on Europe and Asia.

Also of note in the set is a nod to 2014 World Champion, Firebat

Eternal sentinel seems striping when played on turn three after totem golem - a one mana spell such as earth shock or rockbiter weapon can be played as well.

Striping = strong oops

I believe there is an option to edit your comment. It should be in dark blue (bad design imo biggrin.png ) in the lower right corner of you comment, right next to MultiQuote.

      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.

      So I got a lot of jade cards for druid and neutral in the 15-20 packs I've opened, and I wanted to make a jade druid deck, right? But I'm poor, so I look up "Jade Druid Budget Deck". I find one on this site with the following deck list:
       
      2x Innervate 2x Jade Idol MSG 2x Living Roots TGT 2x Raven Idol LoE 2x Wild Growth 2x Wrath 2x Feral Rage TOG 2x Jade Blossom MSG 2x Swipe 2x Nourish 2x Jade Behemoth MSG 2x Jade Spirit MSG 2x Azure Drake 2x Gadgetzan Auctioneer 2x Arcane Giant Kara But I don't have Raven Idol. Or nourish, though I can just craft that since it's in classic. So can anyone suggest an option for replacing the raven idols? I don't want to get all of League of Explorers just to play with it for a month then watch it turn to dust so I can craft other cards for decks in standard. I have one branch, but that's it. I was thinking maybe 1 jeweled scarab, though I know that card is frowned upon for reasons I've never been made aware of, for flexibility, and a loot hoarder for pure draw.
