I believe I heard hearthstone will be coming to a phone... Is this true? If so, which phone(s)? And will hearthstone be available on any other systems or devices other than PC?

I'm pretty sure its only going to be available on PC/Mac and iPad.  The future may say otherwise.

It will be hardly playable on any device with less than 8" or 7" of screen size, that's probably why it only comes to the iPad, not the iPhone. And of course Mac and PC, as every other current Blizzard game, afaik.

I think it would be very hard to adapt the game to a phone. Even if I have a 1080x1920 display on my galaxy s4, I don't think it would be very easy to play hearthstone on it, mostly because the cards would be too small and it would be hard to "click" stuff.

Is this where I can go to bitch about priests?  They have the answer to everything.  The future of Hearthstone better read: We're nerfing priests so that you don't have to stack your deck with minions that have 4 attack.

 

Oh you have a useful minion with 3 or less attack?  It's dead.

 

Oh you have a useful minion with 5 or more attack? It's dead.

 

Oh you have a useful minion and I ran out of douche cards?  It's mine.

 

BLIZZ PLZ!

Apart from the fact that this is completely off-topic...

 

I play a priest and I can't do shit once I have lost too many minions; priests very much rely on them, so I think it is necessary to have a few cards that can balance a possible advantage in minions the opponent might have. I should also remind you that the other classes have strong nuking abilities as well,  I believe the Warrior has a few of them, no?

I was really just trying to be funny because these Hearthstone forums are basically dead, but the capacity for a priest to destroy powerful minions at any point in the game is huge.  Whoops, I just played an Earth Elemental, causing me to lose 3 crystals next turn, and I coupled it with a windfury.  I now give all of that to the priest and am set back the following round.

 

Maybe it's just my shaman that is finding them annoying?  Of any class though, priests have an easier time holding board advantage by throwing out heals.  They also have really efficient nuking power with shadowform and even more so with shadowform x2.  3 targetted damage every round for 2 mana is pretty amazing.  Throw Velen into the picture and owy, assuming the enemy doesn't have an answer to him.

I am not sure if this is even possible with a 30 card limit. :D

Back on topic, it was said,"iOS and android" does android have a tablet? I realize the complications with hearthstone on a phone exist, but does iOS mean iPad as well? If so, I suppose it will likely be coming to computer/ tablet and not phones so that's something to keep in mind , and don't get your hopes up about a phone version like I did.

Its both.  Its coming for iPad first, then for iOS and Android devices.  This wont happen until the later half of next year, but yes.  You'll be able to play it on your phone becasue that is what they showed pictures of at blizzcon.

I've both trashed and been trashed by Priests, and both trashed others and been trashed when playing a Priest. The real strength they have, which a lot of players miss, is that a lot of their card draw borrows from the other's deck. Being able to think on your feet and use that versatility to your advantage is the key. The buffing thing is just gimmick play and can be countered with either good removal or high burst. I wound up with an 18/18 minion with Windfury in one match, but I still lost because the shaman was able to finish me off before I smashed him with it.

      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.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Card Changes
      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)

      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.
      Daxxarri
      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)
