Next Expansion is Called Kobolds & Catacombs. First Card Revealed.

Recommended Posts

Hearthstone-Decks (source of image above) have revealed that the next Hearthstone set is called Kobolds & Catacombs. They have also revealed the first card, Marin the Fox.

The card was revealed to Hearthstone-Decks as part of a promotional email.

Marin the Fox is a 6/6 for 8 Mana that generates a Treasure Chest for your opponent.  The Treasure Chest summoned by Marin is a 0/8 minion, which gives you "Awesome Loot" once killed.

We will, of course, have to wait and see what Treasure Chests will contain. It seems that they will be good though, as Marin is very overcosted if they are not! 

Marin will be awarded for free to anyone logging in from Monday onwards. If you have a BlizzCon virtual ticket, or are at BlizzCon, you will get a gold version.

We will have more Hearthstone news for you as the evening unfolds.

Oh, everybody gets the card - I like it.

If he is a good play remains to be seen, but another thing is: You "steal" on board place from your opponent.

That can be a positive effect too!

(And my guess is that something like Evolve wont work on the chest)

But honestly seems a terrible card if you summon a 0/8 for opponent and he has bonemare it become a 4/12 taunt that will lose you the game

I'm sure its going to more like a 0/8 minion with a mana cost with the death rattle "when killed add random loot to your opponents hand". Sherazin can be only not be evolved when it is in its "dead" state. it is a unique card. This card will be like the presents in the special Christmas tavern brawl.

Don't see why it wouldn't.

My line of thinking: If you can buff the chest and you need to play a 8-mana minion with 6/6 - how many situations are there that this specific play would be usefull?

Only if you are very close to winning anyway.

For every close match (or - god forbid - a match you lag behind a little) it would seem quite a bad decision to play this card.

There is so much that can buff a minion - Bonemare, defender of argus, evolve...

Marin + Crazed Alchemist at 10 mana looks like a good play. I'd say that Marin's popularity will be about the same as Crazed Alchemist's. If the meta runs a lot of Crazed Alchemist targets like Doomsayer, Marin will be a decent value card.

Keleseth Rogues are laughing everywhere, ready to cold blood and Bonemare.

Watch for 2 more hours and you’ll receive another one! Twitch has updated how drops work on their end, and this is Hearthstone’s first time utilizing Twitch Drops since these changes were put into place. Here is what you need to know:
      You’ll now be able to see your watch time progress towards any given drop. You will no longer receive drop rewards automatically. You must instead claim the drop on the channel you’re watching or in the Drops Inventory menu on Twitch within the first 24 hours of earning it.  You will need to claim your first Twitch Drop reward BEFORE you can earn progress towards a second. Twitch users can now earn rewards before linking their Battle.net account to Twitch. Rewards will expire 7 days after they’ve been claimed if a Battle.net account has not been linked. After you’ve claimed a reward on Twitch, please make sure you’re logging into the region you’d like to receive the drop(s) on, as the first region you log into will be where we deliver your packs. It can take up to ~30 minutes to receive your reward(s) in game after claiming. You must link your Twitch and Battle.net accounts before you can receive a drop.
      Link Your Battle.net & Twitch Accounts
      You'll need to link your Twitch.tv and Battle.net accounts to receive Twitch Drops. Here's how:
      Log in or create an account on Twitch.tv. Navigate to the Settings menu by clicking your account name in the top-right corner of the home screen. Navigate to the Connections tab of the Settings menu. Find the Battle.net section, then follow the instructions after selecting a region and clicking Connect. When connecting accounts, be sure that you're currently logged into the Battle.net account on which you'd like to receive your rewards. More Just Around the Corner
      We’ve got expansions, seasonal events, Battlegrounds updates, a new game mode, and so much more planned. On the roadmap below, you can see the massive amount of content we have coming this year! Click to open in a new window.
