Im liking the new Priest card already.  Great anti-aggro, especially if you can combine it with a little + to damage like Bloodmage Thalnos

I've been reading a lot of negative feedback on it but at the current moment I like the card.

I am so excited for this expansion. I am even trying to find someone to help me preorder it and I might be able to. Yay.

I am too but I think the thing that has me the most excited though is the fact that my wife is excited. She has been talking to me all night about the game and is even considering doing the preorder for herself. The couple that plays together, stays together.  ;)

LOL, that's awesome. My girlfriend doesn't play - She played temporarily to help me get Morgl, but she stopped after I got the new hero.

Mine is off and on but between Un'Goro and what little we know of Knights she has been real active lately.

Do you think Dreadscale + Stubborn Gastropod/Emperor Cobra will work just like Knife Juggler with poisonous, ie. killing everything it deals damage to with its effect?

I would think it would work out like that. Poisonous destroys any minion that it deals damage to and Dreadscale is dealing damage so that makes sense. We shall see.

This lifesteal thing work in a way that, it will heal me even when my opponent attack the corresponding minion, right?

For example, I have a lifesteal minion on board. My opponent atacked it on his turn, and my minion dealt 2 damage. Will it heal me? Or should I be the one attacking with it to get the heal?

Yes, if your opponent attacks a minion with lifesteal, you will be healed any damade the minion deals. You do not need to be the one attacking in order to receive the health.

It'll work, yes. "Any time the minion deals damage". Try ramming a body into Wickerflame Burnbristle or play it yourself and watch when your opponent attacks him.

Shallow gravedigger will likely find a place in few of my fun decks, looks way too inconsistent and weak stated for any serious deck but should create enough clown fiesta moments for my amusement.

I don't think it's all that bad, sure it's not the greatest but I've seen worse. I'm already eyeing Quest Priest with this new set and depending on what else is introduced I might throw one Gravedigger in there.

Yep she is. I just can't avoid comparing her to Stonehill Defender... :)

Quest priests may like the card because even something completely awful like Primalfin Champion or Backstreet Leper have some value for them.

If rogues will get more ways to benefit from cards from the other class, Shallow gravedigger may find its place in burgle decks. 

Some gready N'zoth decks may try it for the highroll potential.

Completely agree though Stonehill Defender has proven to be a fantastic card in most cases so I don't know about using him as a comparison if you are suggesting the compared card is bad. :P

well, if we compare her to other 3 mana minions that draw cards like Kabal Courier or Acolyte of Pain or even Primalfin Lookout... she still looks meh. 

 

I am very interested if new hero cards can be discovered.  Hallucinationing all that death knights can be fun

      Players can earn up to three free packs for logging in to Hearthstone during the Hearthstone World Championships.
      The folks over at Hearthpwn.com have learned from data mining of patch 10.0 that the Hearthstone World Championships will offer players three free packs as daily login rewards. The first day of the championships will give players a Journey to Un'Goro pack, the second day a Knights of the Frozen Throne pack, and the third a Kobolds & Catacombs pack. The Hearthstone home screen will also change to sparkling white theme honor the World Championships.

      Along with this week's awesome Tavern Brawl featuring World Championship winning decks, this marks the first time that Blizzard has brought Hearthstone eSports all the way to the Hearthstone client. Given the recent start of the Overwatch League and the choose your champion feature for the World Championships, it seems that Blizzard is supporting competitive gaming now more than ever.

      This week's Brawl honours the 3 previous Hearthstone World Champions!
      The 2018 World Championship is about to begin and Team 5 is celebrating by giving us a very special Tavern Brawl. In this Brawl, you get to play with decks that the previous world champions from 2014, 2015 and 2016 used on their way to the top. Your player name will even change to the respective Champion: Firebat, Ostkaka or Pavel!
      Here are the deck archetypes you can get:
      Firebat's Undertaker Hunter Firebat's Ramp Druid Firebat's Miracle Rogue Firebat's Zoolock Ostkaka's Patron Warrior Ostkaka's Oil Rogue Ostkaka's Freeze Mage Pavel's Tempo Mage Pavel's Malygos Miracle Rogue Pavel's Midrange Shaman Pavel's C'Thun Warrior Pavel's Malygos OTK Druid You might think: "why would I want to play a deck from 2014 with cards that have been nerfed"? Well, all cards are on their pre-nerfed versions, therefore they are basically in the same state as when originally used by each World Champion. So, say hello to pre-nerf Undertaker, Leper Gnome, Hex and many others.
      Amnesiac can never catch a break.
      A slight inconsistency is that cards that generate other cards or tokens, like Piloted Shredder or Babbling Book, can generate cards/tokens from later expansions. For example, my opponent's dead Shredder created Friendly Bartender, a card that neither Champion had encountered at their time.
      Enjoy the Brawl and tune in to the World Championship this weekend!

      Aleco walks through a series of simple early-game decisions while playing an Unstable Evolution deck.
      "Simple early game decisions" and "multi-turn decisions" are the two most common requests I've been receiving since the start of this series, so I decided to do an episode that tackles both! In today's episode I navigate a series of relatively simple early-game decisions against an aggressive Hunter start with my Unstable Evolution Shaman deck.
      If you have any requests for future episodes of "What's the Move?", please feel free to reach out to me here on Icy Veins or via Twitter @Aleco_P. I prefer to always fulfill requests for new episodes if possible, and always love hearing feedback from the community which can help me improve on this series in the future. Don't be shy!
