League of Explorers is looking to be the biggest meta shake up since Naxxramas, thankfully, we have you covered with all the latest decks.

After the somewhat disappointing Grand Tournament expansion, which only introduced a few strong cards to the meta, League of Explorers is shaping up to be a much more powerful affair. Even now, only two weeks in, almost every class has been given some love, with existing archetypes improving and brand new archetypes entering the meta.


Below you will find a breakdown of the new content we have on the site already, but keep your eyes peeled on your favourite class, as new content is being released all the time.
 
On top of all this, card descriptions and Arena rankings are also available for all of the released cards so far. Hopefully all these tools inspire you to go out and have as much fun with this expansion as i'm having!

Highlander Decks
 
With the introduction of Reno Jackson to the game, a brand new type of deck has appeared. Named Highlander, because there famously "could be only one", these decks are made up of 30 individual cards to make sure that Reno Jackson is always live. They vary in power from class to class, so for now are all filed under Unique decks, but some are proving to be very powerful. A Highlander Warlock even recently achieved Rank 1 Legend on Asia.
 
Highlander Warlock
Highlander Paladin
Highlander Warrior

Druid

Mounted Raptor is a great new card for Druid, functioning pretty much as a mini Shredder and fits directly into the Aggro Druid deck.
 
LoE Aggro
 
Mage

Forgotten Torch is the big winner for Mage, giving birth to two new forms of Freeze Mage, both with and without Reno Jackson.

LoE Freeze Mage
Reno Jackson Freeze Mage

Paladin
 
Keeper of Uldaman comes into Paladin and makes a big impact in the Midrange Paladin deck as a flexible option for removal or aggression.

LoE Midrange
 
Rogue

Brann Bronzebeard makes a huge impact in Mill Rogue, allowing the deck to be much more explosive and perhaps even competitively viable. For those of you waiting for Unearthed Raptor decks, worry not, i'm experimenting with that card as we speak.
 
LoE Mill Rogue

Shaman
 
Two new Shaman Midrange decks have popped up thanks to the fantastic Tunnel Trogg as well as Rumbling Elemental. One standard Midrange deck topping out at Bloodlust, and one Battlecry focused deck using Brann and Rumbling Elemental

LoE Midrange Shaman

LoE Battlecry Shaman

Warlock

Highlander decks aside, the addition of Dark Peddler to Warlock also opens many doors for the class, including making way for a resurgence of Zoo!

LoE Midrange Zoo

      The newest Legendary Shaman minion has me shaking in my boots. Is this the card that will put Elemental Shaman over the top?
      Chinese Hearthstone streamer Snowkiss has revealed the Legendary Shaman minion from K&C. This bad boy appears to pack quite the punch - my mind is already racing with potential combos and synergies for Grumble, World Shaker:

      Elementals have plenty of powerful Battlecry triggers which Grumble could play for a second time. Kalimos, Primal Lord, Servant of Kalimos, Blazecaller, and Jade Spirit immediately come to mind as potent synergies for the shaker of worlds. Grumble could also be used to double down of Jade cards such as Jade Chieftain and Aya Blackpaw, or could even be used to recycle the Battlecry triggers of the old gods. All of this on a 7/7 for 6 mana? Sign me up!
      Is this the card that Elemental Shaman has been waiting for? Let us know what you think about Grumble in the comment section, and check out our Kobolds and Catacombs hub for more information on the upcoming set.

      The second of three Unidentified Magic Items to be revealed from Kobolds and Catacombs, will Unidentified Maul be a smashing success on the ladder?
      Kripparrian revealed the second of three Unidentified Magic Items in Kobolds and Catacombs today on his Twitter accounter, Unidentifed Maul:

      A Paladin Weapon, Unidentified Maul begins each game with an unknown effect and will become "identified" upon drawing the card from your deck. The weapon will always be a 3 mana 2/2, but will be randomly bestowed with one of the four following effects when drawn:

      A couple of the potential modes on this card are very enticing. Two Silver Hand Recruits and a 2/2 weapon for 3 mana is a screaming deal, and the other three modes offer some serious value if you're already ahead on board. Given that three of the four potential modes on Unidentified Maul aren't very good when you're behind, I doubt this card will slot in as an instant replacement for Rallying Blade. Unidentified Maul could end up seeing play in token-based strategies, as granting +1 Attack or Divine Shield to a wide board of minions drawn from Small-Time Recruits is nothing to shake a hammer at.
      Will the random nature of Unidentified Maul be its downfall, or will its synergies with token strategies enable it to see some play on the ladder? Let us know what you think in the comments, and be sure to check out our Kobolds and Catacombs hub for more information on the upcoming set.

      Mage gets its first revealed Kobolds & Catacombs minion. And guess what? Joust is back!
      This card release was unexpected, since it wasn't on the schedule, but it is welcome nonetheless! The Hearthstone Brazil Instagram account revealed this minion:

      Image by Hearthpwn.
      It is interesting to see the Joust mechanic return after such a long time. I'd place this card in average tier. It is worse than Arcanologist, since it has one less health and it's also not guaranteed that it will draw you a spell. Even compared to Novice Engineer and Loot Hoarder, Raven Familiar might be a better body but the other two cards are run in decks that really need the guaranteed card draw. The poor Raven can be a liability in a control oriented Mage deck.
      This card is slightly better for Arena mode. Then again, spells aren't that common in that mode and there's also a reduced offer rate for spells like Fireball and Flamestrike.
      Lastly, the Beast synergy is noteworthy. I don't think we'll be seeing Beast Mage any time soon. So Raven Familiar is a weak 2-mana drop that can be generated and offered to Hunters - although this is mostly going to affect Wild mode.
      Feel free to visit our Kobolds & Catacombs hub for all details and revealed cards of the upcoming expansion.

      Spoiled yesterday as a 6 mana 5/4, Seeping Oozeling now appears on the PlayHearthstone website with a lowered mana cost.
      Edit: Confirmed in a tweet by the official Hearthstone account, the 5 mana 4/3 version of Seeping Oozeling is an error. Yesterday's 6 mana 5/4 version is the card we'll be seeing in K&C this December.
      Reddit user Fabman650 recently noticed that Seeping Oozeling has different stats on the official PlayHearthstone website than it did in yesterday's spoiler. The card was spoiled yesterday as a 6 mana 5/4, but appears on the PlayHearthstone website as a 5 mana 4/3:

      If this is truly an intended update by Blizzard (and not some kind of mistake), this would be a significant buff to Seeping Oozeling. The true power in this card lies in its Battlecry trigger, not its stats, meaning that a reduction to its mana cost would make it significantly stronger. At 5 mana, Seeping Oozeling also compares much more favorably to Savannah Highmane than it did before.
      Is Seeping Oozeling now strong enough to see play? Let us know what you think about the updated card, and remember to check our news forum and the Kobolds & Catacombs hub for more new cards from K&C!

      Silver Vanguard is a new neutral Common minion that will be introduced in Kobolds & Catacombs.
      PC Gamer has unveiled this brand new card: 

      The stats of Silver Vanguard are terrible for a 7-mana card. One could argue that the Deathrattle could trigger more easily with the card having such low health, but the 7 mana slot mostly contains minions with usually beefy stats. Blizzard seems to want to continue the trend they started in Year of the Mammoth, just like with the newly revealed Spiteful Summoner, of minions with interesting effects, but weak stats and slightly elevated Mana costs.
      As the PC Gamer article points out, Silver Vanguard could pull out some nice minions for Paladin and Warrior. Examples are Tirion Fordring, Ragnaros, Lightlord and Grommash Hellscream.
      What do you, guys and gals, think? As always, all the revealed cards can be found in our Kobolds & Catacombs expansion hub.
