The "Enrage" keyword will be replaced by "while damaged" in an upcoming patch.
Announced in today's Designer Insights with Peter Whalen, Hearthstone's "Enrage" keyword will be replaced by "While Damaged" in a future patch. Whalen noted that the reason for this change is clarity. Though Hearthstone keywords are typically meant to to be used as shorthand for more complicated effects, Enrage is only one word shorter is than "while damaged" and no less clear.
You can see an example of the new card templating below:
Though a date has not yet been provided for when these changes will take place, I'd be surprised if they were not made before The Witchwood is released in mid-April.
Spoiler season for The Witchwood will begin on March 26th, implying a likely release date of April 12th or 13th.
The PlayHearthstone Twitter account recently announced the time and date for The Witchwood's card reveal stream on Twitch.tv:
The stream will take place on March 26th at 11:AM PDT, where we can expect Blizzard to reveal a handful of cards from the upcoming set and announce the set's two-week spoiler schedule. This would imply that the full spoiler for the set is likely to come on Monday, April 9th. Given that two of the past three sets (including the spring set from 2017) released on a Thursday, this means we are likely to see an April 12th release date for The Witchwood. An April 13th release isn't outside the realm of possibility, but at this point an April 6th release (the date for Journey to Un'Goro) seems unlikely.
This release date has not been officially confirmed (nor is it likely to be confirmed until shortly before the set is released), but the release date for the previous set was predicted using similar methods.
