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.

      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!

      The details for this year's Hallow's End festivities have been revealed.
      As already known from update 12.2, Hallow's End will return from October 17 until October 31. During that time, upon logging in you will receive a free Golden Witch's Cauldron and a free Arena ticket.
      You can use that ticket to enter the Dual Class Arena event. You will choose a Hero, then the Hero Power of another Hero and you will make a deck consisting of both Heroes' class cards and neutral cards. If you have an Arena run in progress when Hallow’s End begins on October 17, then it will be retired and you’ll receive the normal rewards for the number of wins you achieved and a free Arena ticket.
      We'll have two Tavern Brawls during Hallow's end. During the first week (October 17-22), there will be a new Tavern Brawl called Monster Smash. You will get randomly assigned one of six Monster Hunt villains with a premade deck. The other Tavern Brawl (October 24-29) is the one we saw last year as well, The Headless Horseman Rides Again!
      Lastly, the new Paladin Hero, Sir Annoy-o, will be available as a bundle along with 20 Witchwood card packs. The pricing of the bundle is still unknown.

      It’s the Headless Horseman’s favorite time of year, and he’s returning to the Hearthstone tavern from October 17 through October 31 to host another a blowout Hallow’s End celebration for everyone! If you dare to brave a tavern decked in delightfully dreary decorations, you’ll find that your horrific host has also planned some spine-tingling treats and chilling challenges!
       
      Tempting Treats
      The Headless Horseman is handing out ghoulish goodies just for logging in! Log in between October 17 and 10 p.m. PDT on October 31 to receive a free golden Witch’s Cauldron card and an Arena ticket.

       
      The Great Hallow’s End Arena Costume Party
      During Hallow’s End you can experience dual class Arena* with an added twist: Each of the nine classic Hearthstone Heroes will be attending in costume!

       
      When you start an Arena run during Hallow’s End, you’ll choose a Hero, then a Hero Power, and the cards offered in your picks will feature cards from BOTH of those classes, in addition to neutral cards. And don’t forget, you’ll get a free Arena ticket just for logging in, so there’s no excuse not to attend the party!
       
      TWO Tricky Tavern Brawls!
      Monster Smash is a special Hallow’s End Tavern Brawl that will run from October 17 to Oct. 22.
       
      Wise monster hunters avoid the haunted wood during Hallow’s End, so the creepy creatures of the Witchwood are taking the opportunity to find out which among them is the strongest! Take control of a monster from The Witchwood’s Monster Hunt single-player mission and SMASH the competition!

       
      The Headless Horseman Rides Again is a special Hallow’s End Tavern Brawl that will run from Oct. 24 to 29.
       
      The Headless Horseman has been marauding through the countryside, and it’s up to you to stop him! You’ll go in disguise to catch the fiend by surprise—after the Brawl begins, you’ll get to Discover which costume you’ll wear. Each costume has its own deck featuring cards from several classes and a passive Hero Power that you’ll need to make the most of if you want to succeed at sinking the sinister specter!

       
      Hallow! Hallow! Bundle
      While the creatures of the Witchwood stir, and townsfolk cower during the fearful fun of Hallow’s End, Sir Annoy-o remains ever undaunted! He doesn’t even know what a daunt is! Say HELLO! HELLO! HELLO! to the new Paladin Hero and add 20 The Witchwood card packs to your collection when you buy the Hallow! Hallow! Bundle.
       


       
      There’s a feast of fearsome fun to be had at the Headless Horseman’s Hallow’s End hootenanny. Don’t forget to check out a Hallow’s End Fireside Gatherings Tavern near you and get Nemsy Necrofizzle as the celebration continues!
       
      We hope you’ll join us, and we wish you a HAPPY HALLOW’S END!

       
      * NOTE: If you have an Arena run in progress when Hallow’s End begins on October 17, then it will be retired and you’ll receive the normal rewards for the number of wins you achieved and a free Arena ticket. In the hours just before the beginning and conclusion of Hallow’s End on October 17 and October 31, the ability to purchase a new Arena ticket will be temporarily disabled.

      It's difficult to guess which cards will be targeted, but there has been a lot of talk about Giggling Inventor lately.
      Here's the announcement of the announcement:
