We are now being rationed on a steady two cards per day. This article covers Deathwing-Dragonlord and Embrace the Shadow. The total number of revealed cards has now reached sixty one. Blizzard have announced a live stream on April 21, and it seems likely we will get a mass reveal on that date.

Deathwing, Dragonlord is another interesting large minion. A 12/12 for 10 with an upside is definitely a minion to be taken seriously. With the playable large minions we have already seen, and an apparent slowdown in the meta, it is a card that will need serious testing. There seems to be a fair amount of synergy developing for 10-cost minions, with cards such as Ancient Harbinger, and it seems increasingly likely that a large minion deck will be an archetype worthy of investigation.

Embrace the Shadow is a build-around card. While it is possible that there are ways to turn it into a win condition, it seems likely that a card that has almost zero stand alone value will lead to decks not being consistent enough to support it.

New Deathwing, well I dont know, Stats are good but the thing is that big question about Battlecry. in general card that are dropped on the table that way do not proc their own Battlecry effect. So in general with specific dragons it will work and I believe we will see dragon Paladins for the early Deathwing but there is always a Doom and Twisting Nenther to wreck that play.

Embrace the Shadow, in my opinion this will be indeed build-around card, so I believe there will be Prophet Velen Combo Priests. On the other hand it can be used as cheaper removal combo that Auchenai Soulpriest, since in can be used efficiently in many situations.

Combo and you have 2 Deathwings for half the price. With some magic, I think it could work. Definitely going to try it, even though I don't really like combo decks.

      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)
