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.

      Blizzard released the 17.2.2 client patch for Hearthstone to fix a bug related to the closed shop that occurred due to a missing runtime dependency.
      (Source)
      We’re currently in the process of deploying a 17.2.2 client patch that will address the following items:
      Fixed a bug that would cause a crash on mobile when clicking the eye to see who is spectating. Fixed a few various issues that would lock the game state when playing certain cards from hand. Fixed a bug where some players in Europe were only given the option of Warrior as their free deck after graduating the new player ranks. Fixed a bug where the shop would be closed when launching Hearthstone due to a missing runtime dependency. If the shop is still closed after updating to 17.2.2, try swapping to another region on the launcher and swapping back before opening Hearthstone again.
      The incorrect Mana display bug for mobile users will be fixed in the next update.

      Any updates on when the incorrect mana bug for mobile players will be fixed?
      Hey! This will be fixed in our next major update.

      A new blog post has been released, detailing a dozen card changes coming to the game on Monday 18th of May.
      Shaman is getting some much needed help, since three of its cards will be buffed - although it is debatable if these buffs will be enough to move the class out of the bottom.
      As far as the nerfs are concerned, two more Demon Hunter cards (who would have thought?) are getting toned down. Scavenger's Ingenuity, Shadowjeweler Hanar, Blackjack Stunner, Imprisoned Scrap Imp, Bloodboil Brute, Bloodsworn Mercenary are also getting tweaked.
      Nerfed cards will be eligible for a refund until June 1st.
      The patch also brings a bug fix for Ethereal Conjurer, which was causing the game to lock by not offering any Discover options. 
      Don't forget you can grab a free Nemsy until May 19, as part of Patch 17.2.0.
      Blizzard Entertainment
