hearthstone Patch Notes Updated to Include Mulligan Change and Heroic Card Back

The patch for Karazhan went live yesterday, and as usual there were some hidden changes in the update notes under "Fixed various audio, graphical, gameplay, AI and UI issues". These notes have been updated a little since the original post.

We have already reported the majority of the changes, including the new costs of individual tokens. One thing that has also been changed according to the updated official notes is an important one concerning the opening mulligan. As of this patch, you only see your opponent's mulligan after making your own choice. That means that there is no longer any point waiting until the timer runs out to get additional information before making your decision. This should speed up play, especially in bigger tournaments where both players usually wait until the last second before clicking confirm.

Three new card backs were also added to the game. We already posted Medivh's Invitation, the card back for reaching Rank 20 in August. The other two are Karazhan Nights (pictured left), for purchasing all wings the Adventure within one week of launch, and The Blue Portal, which is obtained for beating the adventure in heroic mode.

Mulligan Change is the true MVP. Glad to see it finally implemented.

Also that Heroic cardback is sweeet ;)

Have you had the opportunity to play the first wing L0rinda? And what are your thoughts?

I don't know if this has been there for a while as part of some previous patch, but I noticed this only now:

In adventure mode, there is now an option to "restart" which is pretty handy especially for heroic bosses where mulligan phase determines the outcome for some decks.

I did notice that if you're playing on Iphone (like I do most of my games), you can still see your opponent's mulligan.

      We have a new Tavern Brawl this week! Its name is Spellbook Duel.
      For this Brawl, you choose your class and then you pick 10 different cards to fill your deck. Instead of drawing cards each turn, you Discover a copy of a card from your deck. If you use card drawing mechanics, like Arcane Intellect, you don't actually draw from your deck. You will, in fact, get a 1-mana spell called Peruse, which again allows you to Discover a copy of a card from your deck.
      Obviously, there are a lot of possible deck combinations you can use to tackle this new Tavern Brawl. The first things that pop into mind are anything that contains Reno Jackson and Kazakus, as well as Jade Druid to extend the possibility of getting these precious Jade Idols. Once again, Mage is the clear winner of this Brawl with cards like Sorcerer's Apprentice, Arcane Intellect and Flamewaker.
      Bear in mind that some cards are not recommended, since they remove cards from your Discover pool. Examples are Fel Reaver and Tracking. Moreover, cards that put another card directly into play, like Mysterious Challenger and Mad Scientist, will also make your Discover pool smaller. Lastly, according to a Reddit user, Renounce Darkness won't deduct 1 mana from the cards you discover throughout the game.
      There are already a lot of disgusting decks for Spellbook Duel out there. We are waiting for your suggestions and any other useful info in the comments!
