Our Hearthstone decks and guides section has been overhauled so you can be ready for Whispers of the Old Gods and The Year of the Kraken.


It's launch day for Whispers of the Old Gods, and we're ready to go here at Icy Veins. We have many updated decks, and guides, to help you settle straight into your format of choice.

The first thing you will notice is that the Guide Page has been divided into Wild and Standard for each class. This should help you find the deck you are looking for more quickly.


Sottle has been working around the clock to have everything ready for release, and has provided a Legendary deck in Standard for every class apart from Druid. As always, he is not happy posting a list he is uncomfortable with. Therefore, Druid decks will follow as soon as he has had chance to test post-nerf with the class the took the biggest hit. The decks for other classes will be updated, and many more added, as the week goes on and Standard begins to unfold.

That's not all he has done, he has gone through every deck from the old meta and updated it for Wild play. This means the removal of nerfed cards if they have become unwieldy in a deck, as well as inserting new cards where required. More Wild decks will follow as soon as the Wild meta is defined. 

Of course, Arena will still be a big part of Hearthstone, and Sottle, with a little help from myself, has updated all of the Card Rankings for Arena play with the new cards. If it is your first time using the tier lists, be sure to check out the Guide to ensure you get the most out of them.

We wish you a happy and prosperous Year of the Kraken!

Played a lot of Druid tonight, so a C'Thun deck for them is coming as soon as it passes editing. Also sent over C'Thun Warrior. You guys can expect at least 2 or 3 decks a day coming in for Standard for at least the first week. Playing Hearthstone and writing guides is all i'm doing right now :P

      Dave Kosak introduces us to the Monster Hunt, which will be available in a week.
      The Lead Mission Designer was joined by two of his associates to discuss the newest PvE mode, which will come along with The Witchwood. Paul Nguyen talked about the four heroes. Tess Greymane has a Hero Power that lets her Discover any class card that has been played in a game (by both players) and add it to your hand.
      Darius Crowley has an indestructible cannon minion that can be activated via Darius' Hero Power and fire at the minions across it. Positioning will matter, as you can kill two enemy minions at once and the Hero Power will refresh each time you kill a minion with your cannon. There weren't any details on Houndmaster Shaw or Toki, Time-Tinker, but it was hinted that the former hero will have something to do with Rush (just like its card counterpart).
      Giovanni Scarpati discussed bosses and treasures. The Monster Hunt will feature over 45 unique boss encounters. As Ben Brode had revealed in an earlier interview, each hero will have its own final boss, called "nemesis fight". For Crowley it's Lord Godfrey, for Shaw it's Glinda Crowskin and for Toki it's her own future self! When you clear the Monster Hunt with all four heroes (and win four packs), you get to face Hagatha as the last boss. Ultimately, as far as the treasures are concerned, there are a few returning ones from the Dungeon Run, but most are new. There are also hero exclusive treasures, as well as unique treasures "dropping" from rare boss encounters.
      You should definitely watch the video to get a glimpse of all the new stuff coming with the Monster Hunt. And don't forget: it's release date is April 26 at 10:00 am PDT!
      Start stocking up on vials of holy water and cannonballs, because The Witchwood’s free, single-player missions, the Monster Hunt, goes live on April 26 at 10:00 a.m. PDT!
      Join Lead Mission Designer Dave Kosak, along with Mission Designers Paul Nguyen and Giovanni Scarpati, for a Hearthside Chat that will equip you with everything you need to know for a successful Monster Hunt!
      Ready for Action
      If you played the Dungeon Run in Kobolds & Catacombs, the Monster Hunt will be eerily familiar—but much is different! Rather than choosing one of Hearthstone’s nine classes, you’ll take on the role of one of four veteran monster hunters, each with a special ability that you’ll need to make the most of if you hope to survive the hunt.
      Your hunter will venture deep into the Witchwood on Hagatha’s trail, defeating a series of monstrous bosses who dare to cross your path. With each victory, you’ll build a stronger and stronger deck with the items you find. You may encounter some trusty old equipment out in the forest, but much of what you’ll find will be entirely new, including treasures unique to certain foes. Each monster hunter has their own favorite tricks—a special hero power or ability that you’ll need to master if you hope to survive the hunt. Each hunter also carries a grudge against a heinous nemesis in the woods: a unique boss that only they can track down to fight.

      You’ll want to go on a Monster Hunt with every hunter, because each offers a quest that will earn you a Witchwood card pack. And if you’ve got the mettle to complete the Monster Hunt with all four hunters, you’ll finally have a chance to face off with the real witch in the woods: Hagatha! If you can free the wood from Hagatha’s curse, you’ll earn the gratitude of Gilneas and the Monster Hunter card back!

      We hope you enjoyed learning more of what lurks ahead in Monster Hunt! We’re eager to hear your tales of The Witchwood on social media using the #Witchwood hashtag. Learn more about The Witchwood at TheWitchwood.com!
      We’ll see you on the hunt!
