Blizzard just posted another preview of a batch of cards coming to Hearthstone in the next adventure mode release, Blackrock Mountain. The Blackwing Technician had been revealed previously, but two new cards - the Blackwing Corruptor and Dragon's Breath - have been showcased for the first time today!

 

If you think you’ve gotten out of trouble just because you’re a “safe” distance from the otherworldly elementals of Molten Core or the flame-tempered (and ill-tempered) dwarves of Blackrock Depths, think again! A host of black dragons lurk within the uppermost reaches of Blackrock, and their leader is perhaps the most ill-tempered of them all. . . .

The black dragon Nefarian, son of Deathwing, claims the upper reaches of Blackrock Mountain as his own. Ruthless and cunning, Nefarian built Blackwing Lair as a home for the black dragonflight and his various experiments. It was also here that he concocted the ultimate army of home-cooked chromatic dragons, perfect for thwarting Ragnaros and his fiery minions that lurked under the mountain (Nefarian’s favorite pastime).

 

Up To No Good

 

If you think shredders are the only things goblins like to tinker with, you are sadly mistaken. The green-skinned technicians within Blackwing Lair love to tinker with “organic chemistry,” creating volatile concoctions from dragon experiments that enhance their own nefarious powers. If you see a Blackwing Technician looking shady, be sure to take note: A dragon is near.

While the Technicians are busy dabbling with their dangerous dragon experiments, the Blackwing Corruptors are engrossed in harnessing and controlling the powers of dragons for their own dark deeds. These minions have seen “How to Train Your Dragonkin” at least 100 times. Their powers are also bolstered by their proximity to dragons, so stay on your toes!

There are a few rules when it comes to handling dragons, but the most important rule of all is this: Don’t stand in front of one—ever. Aside from a maw of sharp teeth to watch out for, dragon breath is incredibly good at reducing heroes to piles of ash. While it’s not minty fresh, Dragon’s Breath can be very powerful in the hands of a Mage on a minion-roasting rampage.

Are you ready to tackle the dangerous experimental dragonflight of Blackwing Lair? Don’t be “dragon” your feet for this one—prepare yourself for Hearthstone’s second exciting Adventure, Blackrock Mountain, coming soon!

 

What do you think of the new cards? Blackwing Corruptor looks like a poor man's Goblin Blastmage or a cheaper Fire Elemental, while Dragon's Breath has the potential to be immensely powerful in the Mage arsenal (since any minion dying would count!).

      The single-player adventure, introduced along with the Rastakhan's Rumble expansion, is now available in all regions.
      The Rumble Run is very similar to the Dungeon Run and the Monster Hunt, in the sense that you will face eight opponents and you will build your deck as you progress using card bundles, passives and powerful minions exclusive to this game mode.
      Your hero will always be Rikkar, a young Troll champion eager to prove himself. In the beginning of your run, you will be offered three different Shrines (more on them in the next paragraph) from three different classes. This initial decision basically equals to you picking a Class for this run. The other eight classes will be your opponents.

      Shrines exist as minions on the board and they have powerful effects. Each class has three different Shrines and each starting Shrine comes with a complementary deck of 10 minions that synergise with it. When a Shrine dies, it goes dormant for 3 turns and its effect isn't active until it comes back to life.
      Subsequently, you will build your deck using card bundles, neutral passive abilities and class-specific minions exclusive to the Rumble Run.
      If you finish the Rumble Run once with any class, you will earn this card back:

      Good luck on this new adventure and we'll soon have a detailed guide on it!

      With Rastakhan's Rumble being released last week, we were bound to get a Tavern Brawl like this. So pick a hero and you get the premade Rastakhan's Rumble deck recipe for the class you chose.
      Here are the decks:
      Druid: Feral Frenzy Hunter: Animal Instincts Mage: Power of the Dragonhawk Paladin: Shirvallah's Chosen Priest: Surrender to Madness Rogue: Cursed Crew Shaman: Big Bad Voodoo Warlock: Reckless Ritual (Discard) Warrior: Wings of War (Dragons) Good luck!
