Three new cards have been revealed today, bringing the total to ten so far. There is a new Hogger, a big Hunter minion, and a way to deal with multiple secrets.


Blizzard have been using the card reveals as rewards for watching tournaments. There was a card revealed in the middle of the Americas Winter Championship Day 3, as well as cards at the end of the Japan Preliminaries, and China's Gold Series.

First up is a corrupted Legendary. Hogger, The Scourge of Elwynn is a twist on the original Hogger in that he's now bigger, and creates taunts when he takes damage. He also proved this author to be incorrect, as I posted that I didn't think the Hogger card back was a clue for the next expansion. This card is full of flavour and is hopefully going to have an interesting backstory.

The Giant Sandworm uses a slightly new mechanic. It works in a similar way to a Windfury minion, but only gets to attack again if it kills a minion. At first glance the card doesn't seem too amazing, but it does have synergy with cards that make minions Immune such as Stablemaster. That seems overly clunky at this time, but we said that about Grim Patron combos too.

Eater of Secrets has been greeted with much excitement by the community. Although Avenge will not be in Standard, many people fear a strong new Paladin Secret card will be printed. If that were to happen, Secret Paladin decks would still be around for another year. This card gives an option to make sure that such a deck will not get too out of hand.

In case you missed them, the other reveals from Whispers of the Old Gods so far are:
Paladin card, Stand Against Darkness
Initial announcement: Six Cards including C'Thun

      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.

      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)
