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

      Various bosses from The Witchwood's Monster Hunt are ready to battle it out in this week's brand new Tavern Brawl.
      This is the first special Tavern Brawl that we will see during this year's Hallow's End.
      You just queue up and you get assigned a random boss from the Monster Hunt. Some of these bosses include:
      Azalina Soulthief (Hero Power: 2 mana - Summon three 1/1 Wisps) Blood Witch Greta (Passive Hero Power: Spells cost Health instead of Mana) Brushwood Centurion (Hero Power: 3 mana - All minions attack random enemy minions) Chupacabran (Hero Power: 1 mana - Give a friendly minion +1/+1 and Lifesteal) Plaguemaster Rancel (Hero Power: 2 mana - Deal 2 damage to a minion. If it survives, give it Poisonous) Shudderwock (Passive Hero Power - All Battlecries trigger twice) Winslow Tobtock (Hero Power: 2 mana - Each player shuffles their hand into their decks and draws that many cards) Wharrgarbl (Hero Power: 2 mana - Draw 3 Murlocs from your deck) Experiment 3C (Hero Power: 2 mana - Destroy a friendly minion and draw 3 cards) It's not sure how many bosses there are available, but they certainly have similar decks as during the PvE adventure. It might be worth checking our Monster Hunt guide to refresh your memory on some of their abilities or just experience them in action!

      Hallow's End is going to last from October 17 until October 31.
      As we've already discussed, you can log in to enjoy the spooky festivities and receive a free Golden Witch's Cauldron.
      You will also get a free Arena entry ticket in order to test your mettle in the Dual Class Arena. Pick a Hero, choose the Hero Power of a second Hero and try to make the perfect mix with the combined might of both Heroes' class cards.
      We'll have two Tavern Brawls during Hallow's end: Monster Smash (October 17-22) and The Headless Horseman Rides Again (October 24 - 29)!
      Lastly, for a limited time you can purchase the new Paladin hero, Sir Annoy-o, as a Bundle along with 20 Witchwood packs at the price of $19.99 or 19.99 EUR. This mighty new hero even has his own backstory which you can read here.
      Later today, we should also see the balance changes go live.

      The update will take effect on October 18.
      Well, the balance changes were smaller than expected as only three cards were affected this time.
      As expected, Giggling Inventor was affected as it now costs 7 mana, up from 5. The team actually considered it too powerful for 6 mana, which raises the question why it was 5 mana in the first place. Anyway, it still remains an odd card if this is still relevant.

      Now, a big and unexpected change was Mana Wyrm being raised to 2 mana. The iconic Classic minion has undergone the Tunnel Trogg treatment and after 4+ years of power, it is ready to retire.

      And a Wild change to alleviate the devastating Druid combo: Aviana will now cost 10 mana. This means she can't be played at the same turn as Kun the Forgotten King and Juicy Psychmelon won't be able to draw both Kun the Forgotten King and Aviana with it.

      The update will go live on October 18th with the weekly reset. What do you guys think about the changes?

      Bosses from various Hearthstone adventure battle it out in this week's Tavern Brawl.
      This is the second time we see Boss Battle Royale 2, which itself is a variation of the original Tavern Brawl. This time, we have a new Druid hero and the Warlock hero Sindragosa has been slightly nerfed.
      You pick a class and then you get a specific boss hero, which has its special hero power and a predetermined deck:
      Druid: King Togwaggle (Magic Candle: 3 mana - Find a Treasure) Hunter: Skelesaurus Hex (Ancient Power: 0 mana - Give each player a random cards. It costs 0) Mage: The Curator (Gallery Protection: Passive - Your Hero has Taunt) Paladin: White King (Castle: 2 mana - Discover a chess piece) Priest: Professor Putricide (Mad Science: Passive - All Secrets cost 0) Shaman: Lady Naz'jar (Pearl of the Tides: At the end of your turn, replace all minions with new ones that cost 1 more) Rogue: Grobbulus (Poison Cloud: 2 mana - Deal 1 damage to all minions. If any die, summon a slime) Warlock: Sindragosa (Ice Claw: 2 mana - Do 2 damage. There will be 2 Blocks of Ice on your opponent's side of the board at the beginning of the game) Warrior: Coren Direbrew (Pile On!: 0 mana - Put a minion from each deck into the battlefield) Sindragosa is pretty powerful. Lady Naz'jar, Coren Direbrew and Skelesaurus Hex have random effects that can benefit your opponent - Lady Naz'jar seem to have more success than the other two. Grobbulus can work too, if you play smartly.
      Good luck!
