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

      Year of the Mammoth Arena Guide now available!
      Our Arena Guide has been updated by Pesty, to fully reflect the format for The Year of the Mammoth.
      As well as the new tier list for classes, the guide addresses each class in detail, so that you can get the most out of your Arena draft. It also discusses which Mana curves work well with which class, and how to pick on your opponents' likely weaknesses.
      The new Tier List is shown below:
      Tier 1 (Excellent): Mage, Rogue Tier 2 (Great): Paladin, Hunter Tier 3 (Good): Druid, Priest, Shaman, Warlock, Tier 4 (Average): Warrior For any feedback or questions about this guide, check out our Hearthstone General Discussion Forum, or comment in this thread.

      The 97th Tavern Brawl is called 'An Ancient Recipe' and it offers players the chance to try out Journey to Un'Goro decks.
      The rules of this Brawl are simple: you choose a hero and you get a premade deck with the Un'Goro deck recipe for that class. The deck archetypes are the following and we even have guides for most of them:
      Quest Druid Dinomancer Hunter Elemental Mage (guide for almost identical deck here) Quest Paladin Quest Priest Quest Rogue Elemental Shaman Quest Warlock Quest Warrior All deck recipes have pretty good winning chances. This is a nice chance to play with cards you don't own and get to know the new Hearthstone expansion better.
