The fourth wing of Blackrock Mountain - Blackwing Lair - is now open for players to experience. Some crazy new mechanics debut in this week's challenges, and the Heroic modes are no joke! A ton of awesome new Dragon cards are also coming out as rewards. Read on...

 

The Nefarian fight, in particular, is hugely interesting. If you get the chance, play Deathwing against him!

 

This week rewards a couple of key new Dragons and awesome Mage and Shaman minions:

This week's new card rewards, available now.

 

You can read Blizzard's original post below:

 


You’ve bested Lord Victor’s Nefarius’ lieutenants in the Blackrock Spire, and now it’s time to take the fight into his fortress stronghold! A decisive showdown between you and Lord of Blackrock seems inevitable. It will take all your wits to come out on top when you infiltrate the fourth wing of Blackrock Mountain: Blackwing Lair!

 

Every week, a new wing of Blackrock Mountain will become available for players to experience. Blackrock Mountain wings will unlock in the following order:


 

Blackwing Lair is Lord Victor Nefarius’ seat of power within Blackrock Mountain. There, he tinkers with blood of the various dragon flights in an effort to create a perfect, unstoppable draconic army. It’s not an exact science, but hey, it’s still SCIENCE! Victor is joined by a ravenous rogue’s gallery who are all eager to eat meet you!

Razorgore

 

Watching eggs is a full-time responsibility. It doesn’t leave poor Razorgore much time to do important things like get a degree, socialize, or do fun, destructive dragon stuff. This unfortunate situation has only worsened his historically poor temperament. Razorgore’s glad you’re stopping by to help him work off some stress! If you can successfully make an omlelette out of  Razorgore’s eggs, two copies of the Warrior card Revenge will be yours!

Vaelastraz

 

We’ve touched upon the fact that Victor Nefarius is a bad dude, and here’s the proof. Vaelastrasz was once one of the good guys - a happy-go-lucky red dragon. Victor Nefarius used dark magic to corrupt him, forcing the ferocious red dragon to serve the Lord of Blackwing Lair against his will. End Vaelastrasz’ torment and two copies of the Mage minion Flamewaker will be added to your collection.

Chromaggus

 

What’s worse than a horrible mutant dragon monstrosity that uses magic? A horrible mutant dragon monstrosity that usesfive types of magic, obviously! Chromaggus unleashes abilities ripped from the flesh of all five dragon flights. Don’t ask how he got those powers. Viscera are involved. Hey, we told you not to ask! You’ll have to battle the chromatic horror before you can take on Lord Victor Nefarius. Put Chromaggus down and you’ll gain access to a pair of Hungry Dragon cards.

Lord Victor Nefarius

 

Victor Nefarius is super impressed that you made it this far, even if it really wasn’t part of his plan. All the same, he’s going to end you now. It’s nothing personal; he just thinks you’re an insolent, uppity, mortal interloper. Don’t let appearances deceive you -- there’s more to the Lord of the Blackwing Lair than meets the eye. De-throning the Lord of Blackrock will award you with two copies of the Shaman minion Fireguard Destroyer for your collection.

 

Claim victory against all of the foes within Blackwing Lair and the Legendary Chromaggus card will be added to your collection!

 

Two Class Challenges will also become available to players that have defeated all of Blackwing Lair’s bosses on normal mode. Class challenges feature pre-built decks, and will put your skills with those specific classes to the test! Blackwing Lair has challenges in store for Warlocks and Rogues. Warlocks will get a second chance to unleash their shadowy powers against Razorgore. Success will earn them two copies of the Warlock spell Demonwrath. Rogues will have to utilize their skills at subterfuge to soothe the corrupted Vaelastrasz once more. Two copies of the Dark Iron Skulker minion are at stake!

Do you crave an even more challenging experience? If so, try out Heroic Mode! Blackwing Lair’s Heroic Mode is available upon completing the wing on normal difficulty. The foes in Heroic Mode are far more difficult to best than their normal mode counterparts, and often require tailor-made decks.

 

You’ve come far in your journey through Blackrock Mountain. One final wing is all that remains. What new horrors await you?

 

The final wing releases next week, and the full range of new cards - including a bevvy of additional Dragon minions - will be unleashed on the ladder. What card do you think is going to make the biggest impact?

Razorgore heroic deck:

If you can't get something on the board before the first egg hatches, best to concede and start over.

I mostly used my guys to keep the eggs down. Concecrate on turn 4 is ok. Razorgore mostly uses Bloodlust on turn 5. I just took the damage. Equality is great for the "oh crap" moments when you can't use anything else to stop eggs from reaching 5 life.

As soon as you have board control: Muster + Quartermaster is key here, the game is almost won. Just keep killing the eggs, use Weapons, Humility and Tirion to save yourself when the big guys are dropped. Of course Equality + Concecrate is also a great way to get out of trouble.

Vaelastraz heroic Deck:

The Idea is pretty strait forward. He tries to mill you...so you just mill him right back. In the End, because of your small minions, you were able to "out mill" your scaley opponent, because you had small minions to play wink.png

Chromaggus heroic Deck:

Here you try to keep yourself alive. Always try to discard the bronze and black cards given to you as soon as possible. Best to try to mulligan for lightwell, because that helps keep you alive and Chromaggus ignores it. Your main goal, next to winning, is to build up a huge minion, with which Chromaggus can't do anything against.

Stay alive, collect your buffcards and make a nice big guy and roast you some lizard wink.png

Lord Victor Nefarius heroic Deck:

To be honest, all you just need is a standard control paly Deck and just run him down like you would any other. I was a little disapointed sad.png

Personal experience to his hero power: He seems to get Avenge alot. I must have seen that secret 6,7 times...

      The Hearthstone heroes are trying to enjoy Rastakhan's Rumble but a fellow spectator named Belligerent Gnome is annoying Rexxar!
      Wronchi have released the second part of their Rastakan's Rumble series of animations. You remember that in the first part the nine heroes were trying to get into the Gurubashi Arena. Now, we see that Rexxar, Jaina and Anduin are enjoying the games but there's a little fellow that's too loud for Rexxar's taste.
      And here he is:

      No wonder Rexxar is angry since this is definitely a Silverback Patriarch power creep! Although one would expect that Gul'dan would be equally angry, since this is a Vulgar Homunculus with a condition for every class!
      To start the serious discussion on this card, this looks like an anti-aggro tool that can also probably find its place in aggro decks as well. It's hard to see the Battlecry trigger on turn 2 exactly, making this a bit of a slower card. Dragon Priest used to have a similar card in Wyrmrest Agent, which was easier to trigger. Even decks could be a good place for Belligerent Gnome - Even Shaman, in particular, since I don't see Warlocks dropping their beloved Homunculus.
      It's definitely a versatile card with a lot of potential and it seems balanced - for now.

      Two new cards from Rastakhan's Rumble were revealed in an official blog post detailing the story of the upcoming expansion.
      The first card revealed is a neutral Pirate:

      It's important to clarify that the Overkill effect triggers only on your turn (ie. when you attack and not when you are attacked) and this minion will draw you cards even if it dies as long as you Overkill something. Other than that, it feels slow for an aggro Pirate deck and its low Health means it can be killed easily. Perhaps it could make for a decent Arena card.
      The awesomely named second card of the day is Heavy Metal!

      Here is a spell with the Geosculptor Yip effect, at a reduced cost and minus the body. Interestingly enough, this card would have been better if it costed 5 or 7 mana since it would fit in Odd Warrior, a deck that heavily utilises armoring up. Even Warrior might become a thing in the future, but still with Yip never really having caught on, it's really hard to see this card fit into any Warrior deck.
      The blog post itself is interesting, since it gives an introduction to the lore of Rastakhan's Rumble. We see Rikkar - the aspiring Troll champion, who is also the protagonist of the Rumble Run - entering the Gurubashi Arena and trying to pick which team he is going to side with. The Tigers - the Paladin team - are described as the returning champions of Rastakhan's Rumble. We are eager to see what's next for this expansion!

      The Hearthstone subreddit interviewed Peter Whalen and Liv Breeden on the upcoming Rastakhan's Rumble expansion.
      You can read the entire interview here.
      Interview Highlights
      Rastakhan's Rumble has been in development for almost a year, from January 2018. Spirits will be appearing in the Arena. We won't see much of old Keywords in Rastakhan's Rumble, but they are open to revisiting them (Hero and highlander cards, Inspire and C'Thun were mentioned). One of the design lessons Team 5 has learned is that they want more build-around cards that have cheap rarity (like the Spirits). With Rastakhan's Rumble, they wanted classes to feel like a team. Captain Hooktusk, the Rogue champion, is an original Hearthstone character. Pirates are mostly in Rogue in this expansion. They are still pretty aggressive, but there are some more expensive pirates in this set.

      The reveal season for Rastakhan's Rumble starts with a Paladin card.
      Every recent Hearthstone expansion has had its own series of funny blog posts and videos. Blizzard collaborated with Wronchi in The Boomsday Project and now they are back for Rastakhan's Rumble.
      Hearthstone's heroes are waiting in line to get tickets to get into the Gurubashi Arena. Everyone has the gold for it, except from poor (literally) Uther. He does get a card reveal though and the story will be continued from what was teased in the end.

      People have been comparing this card to Evasion and Ice Block. It certainly has it pros and cons. You can play it proactively, even at high health and you can combine it perfectly with a weapon swing or powerful healing spells. On the other hand, Time Out! requires more setting-up and better game knowledge of what cards your opponent might have on his/her hand. This card could potentially go into a Control Paladin deck, along with Shirvallah, the Tiger legendary Loa minion.
      What do you think?
