Hearthstone's Senior Game Designer, Ben Brode, has been very active on Twitter in the last week. He has answered a wide range of questions and we have highlighted some of the important ones for you in this article.


Firstly Brode addressed concerns about lore changes. He points out that lore associated with characters being corrupted by the Old Gods is only applicable to Hearthstone. He replied to around fifteen tweets on the matter, but they all said pretty much the same thing.


The theme throughout is very much "What if" the four Old Gods came back at the same time.



Regarding gameplay, both players waiting to see how many cards the other one chooses to mulligan, before making their own choice is often a problem on ladder, and especially so in tournaments. Brode suggests that this will be changed at some point, although seems to imply it won't be just yet.



He confirms that there will be a new game board when Whispers of the Old Gods is released. He also confirms that it is a bug that Stampeding Kodo can target the same minion twice when played with Brann Bronzebeard on the board.

There are many other tweets answering individual questions, but most of those are already covered on battle.net. It is great to see him putting in the time to communicate with Twitter users.

      This thread is for comments about our Spell Damage Mage deck.

      The latest Hearthstone community contribution allows you to train the skills needed to master Combo Priest: quick thinking, fast mouse movements, strategic decisions and on-the-spot calculations. What's more to ask?!
      Combo or OTK or APM Priest is a reiteration of Combo and Vivid Nightmare Priest that was born with The Boomsday Project thanks to two cards: Topsy Turvy and Test Subject. Dog is credited as the creator and true master of the deck:
      Many have subsequently tried and failed to pilot the deck, which can require almost 100 moves during the 75 seconds of a single turn. Pro players like Trump and Thijs have hilariously failed, while others like Disguised Toast and Kolento kept trying until they got the hang of it.
      Right now, you might be dreading that you don't have the IQ to play this deck. Fear no more: everything can be practiced and Patashu has made the tool for it! Combo Priest Simulator allows you to practice the OTK combo on your browser, while also timing you. You can change the parameters of the starting gamestate, too.
      In all seriousness, the deck's winrate is below average and it's honestly too much trouble for too little gain. Then again, slamming your opponent's face for 100+ damage is quite satisfactory. It would be awesome if someone was brave enough to bring this deck at a tournament: it would be the casters' nightmare!
      Apart from Combo Priest Simulator, we have a guide for Topsy Turvy OTK Priest here on Icy Veins; the guide breaks down the necessary steps of the combo in a useful priority list. Alternatively, you can listen to Aleco trying to explain how the deck works to Patrick (and actually succeeding) in the latest Icy Veins Podcast!
