Fulla is back yet again with another custom Hearthstone card design: Taran Zhu, Lord of the Shado-Pan. We delve a bit deeper into the designer's background and current project.


 

A good friend of mine for nearly a decade, Fulla cut his game design teeth the same way (and at the same time) I did mine: through Warcraft III's powerful Map Editor tool. Fulla's projects have encompassed several genres, including, but not limited to lane-pushing games and real-time strategy games. I've come to really appreciate his work for his strong emphasis on thematics and polish. One of his most successful projects, Card Shuffle, was officially showcased in an official Blizzard blog post to try and promote StarCraft II's newest Arcade feature.

 

His current project is nothing short of pure insanity: Fulla is literally recreating Hearthstone on a custom engine that will allow him to not only play the game we all love, but also to create and play with his own cards, rules, and mechanics. If you haven't seen his work, I recommend you check out his YouTube channel.

 

Today's presentation features 3 versions of Taran Zhu, one of World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria's most prominent character. His thematics revolve around martial arts and stealth.

 

First up, we have a control-oriented card that would certainly be a welcome addition to any deck looking to protect their win condition (and themselves) for an extra turn. Stealthed Antonidas or Paletress? This one gets my vote.

Next up, we have what appears to be a buffed up Kidnapper. Playing this card would represent a huge tempo gain, and potentially open up for lethal if a big taunter is taken out. Does it have enough Health to be viable?

Last, but not least, we have an answer to those pesky Antique Healbot and, of course, Reno. Could this fit an aggro deck with such a steep cost?

You may have noticed that the card features a custom-made golden art. So, which card design gets your vote?

id like to add that ... i went with the first design because that means more use of useless yet favorable legendary cards  to some players could see some play i.e ''ILLIDAN'' to begin with, which i run in a similar deck  ''miracle rogue'' .. so i reallly would like to see this or something similar in terms of mechanics because it might revive alot of dead cards that were useless before ..and great job on the animation btw (Y)

I went with option three. Then again, I tend to play aggressive, and seeing a good setup get dumped by Brann-Healbot or a lucky Reno makes my soul shrivel and die a bit

      In episode two of "What's the Move?" Aleco discusses an open-ended situation which doesn't have a clear answer.
      In episode two of "What's the Move?" Aleco discusses an open-ended situation which doesn't have a clear answer.
      We kicked off this new series by analyzing a tricky situation which had only one optimal line of play. In episode two we'll take a look at a very different kind of situation, one where there might not be a perfect move at all.
      Please let us know in the comments what you would have done in this situation! One of the primary goals of this series is to foster improvement at Hearthstone by generating discussions. We would also love to hear your feedback on the video itself, as the series is still very new and has plenty room to improve on its format.

      In the latest Hearthstone update, Blizzard made adjustments to several cards. The patch is now live now on desktop and it should become available on mobile devices in the coming hours.
      Philosophy and reasons behind these changes can be found here.

      Card Changes
      Innervate now reads: Gain 1 Mana Crystal this turn only. (Down from 2)
      Fiery War Axe now costs 3 mana.  (Up from 2)
      Hex now costs 4 mana. (Up from 3)
      Murloc Warleader now reads: Your other Murlocs have +2 Attack. (Down from +2 Attack, +1 Health)

      A new Brawl has landed in the Tavern.
      Just like with the previous expansions, it's time to try out the deck recipes of Knights of the Frozen Throne in this week's Tavern Brawl. The archetypes for each deck recipe are the following:
      Druid: I guess the best name for this deck is Midrange Druid. It has Ultimate Infestation and Spreading Plague, so... PROFIT?! Deathrattle Hunter Elemental Mage Divine Shield Paladin Control Priest (you've probably seen variations of it in ladder) Jade Deathrattle Rogue Freeze Shaman Zoolock Control Warrior with Enrage minions This is a good opportunity to try out cards that you don't own. Good luck and have fun!

      The balance patch is arriving in the beginning of the next week.
      The wait is over! The anticipated card balance changes will arrive on September 18th and hopefully freshen up the meta a little bit. As the case always is with balance patches, for the next two weeks if you disenchant Spreading Plague and/or Murloc Warleader, you will get their full value in Arcane Dust.

      In the recent Upcoming Balance Changes – Update 9.1 blog, we discussed the details and philosophy behind balance updates that are coming to several Hearthstone cards:
       
      Innervate - Now reads: Gain 1 Mana Crystal this turn only. (Down from 2) Fiery War Axe - Now costs 3 mana. (Up from 2) Hex - Now costs 4 mana. (Up from 3) Murloc Warleader - Now reads: Your other Murlocs have +2 Attack. (Down from +2 Attack, +1 Health) Spreading Plague - Now costs 6 mana. (Up from 5)
      This patch is currently targeted for September 18th PDT. Please note that updates for mobile devices may take a few additional hours to propagate.

      Once these card changes are live, players will be able to disenchant cards that are not Basic (Murloc Warleader and Spreading Plague) for their full Arcane Dust value for two weeks. Basic cards cannot be disenchanted and will not be available for an Arcane Dust refund. (source)
