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?

Thank you for finally changing the way mulligan works!

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.

      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).
