Dog revealed two new Druid cards and JasonZhou unveiled a new Paladin card from the Witchwood expansion!

The card's very similar to Twilight Drake except it has a taunt; it synergizes with adding cards to your hand.

It's similar to Branching Paths, but you trade Mana for versatility. It has a lot of synergy with Spellstone.

Paragon of Light seems quite promising. 2/5 are definitly nice stats for 3 Mana. Since Handbuff is leaving standard, her ability has to be triggert with direct buffs I guess. Sooo...Quest-Paladin?

Bewitched Guardian seems also okay. I would pay one extra mana for Taunt on a Twilight Drake.

In regards of "Ferocious Howl"...I really don't know. 3 Mana for something like 6 or 7 armor in average and getting your card back...meh. I think the comparison with Earthen Scales is not very fitting (because it is probably played in a completely different deck) but I also can't see why a hand-Druid would want to get armor for so much mana.

Paragon of Light is a huge threat against aggro you play it on 3 and aggro have to decide if kill it or making you heal by 6 hp next turn with Blessing of Kings and heal you even more to take it down.

Shield Block is unplayable in warrior and druid has better ways to improve spellstone than wasting 3 mana to do nothing.

the taunt I don't know honeslty druid has no good ways to draw aside Ultimate Infestation and new neutrals, if somehow hand druid become playable will be played as a better Twilight Drake since the taunt on something with 9 health is a huge benefit

Howl seems fine.  It is around a shield block most of the time, which is seen in control warrior decks.  It might not see play simply because of the overlap with branching paths though.  

 

Guardian, I think this card is quite bad.  1 Mana more then Drake for just taunt, meh.  There is the new 5 Mana 3/12 or what ever it is with taunt if you want a huge anti aggro road bump.

 

Paragon is really good, works with dire wolf, prince K, any buff.  It might not have a deck that can reliably activate it, but if it does this will be an extremely powerful card.

I can see combo decks running howl. Particularly if they’re running oaken summons, in the event they don’t get to wild growth on 2, cycling and gaining armour on 3 is better than hero power generally. Not convinced bewitched guardian is good enough for anything, particularly as cubelock will still be around and hence so will silence. Not sold on hand-druid in general either.

Paragon of Light is nice.

For the Druid cards: We will have to wait and see how/if hand size Druid develops.

Paragon looks like a good card, what I don't like about it is that it has no synergy with discover taunt or cards like Corpsetaker because it does not have the abilities by default. Also it's weird, it really looks like something I would like to play but I am not sure where to put it :D

I would think more about keleseth instead of buff spells. Some more cards like this with kele would def make a decent deck

      Right before the news for the upcoming PvE Adventure hits, Blizzard announced some much needed balance changes.
      Two card buffs from the May update will be reverted, while three more cards will be nerfed in an update coming next week.
      In May, we had the first card buffs in Hearthstone's history. In an occasion like that, it was certain that some of these buffs would be hit or miss. While there were definitely some misses, some of these biffs hit harder than expected and thus they will now will be reverted. These cards are Extra Arms, which will go back to costing 3 mana, and Luna's Pocket Galaxy going back to 7 mana.


      Two more cards from Standard are also getting nerfed in the August 26 update. Mage will suffer another big loss, as Conjurer's Calling will now cost 4 mana (up from 3).

      Another much needed nerf is that of Dr. Boom, Mad Genius. The 7-mana 7/7 (infinite 7s) meme started from the original card will be no more, as the cost of this heavily used Hero card will be upped to 9.

      Finally, a lot of Wild players can breathe out in relief as Barnes' cost will be increased to 5 mana, up from 4. I am not sure if this will be enough to alleviate the frustrations of the Wild community with the Legendary minion, but at least it's a step to the right direction.

      You can read about Blizzard's thinking behind these nerfs in the official blog post.

      In this new Brawl, all minions work like Nightmare Amalgam.
      This means that all minions count as Elementals, Mechs, Demons, Murlocs, Dragons, Beasts, Pirates and Totems!
      Since this a Constructed Tavern Brawl, you want to build your deck carefully. It's  clever to focus on synergies of a specific Tribe (Murloc, Pirate and Mech/Magnetic decks being the most successful ones so far) but you can also create some busted combos if you mix and match.
      Key cards for each type of Tribe include:
      Elementals: Lesser Ruby Spellstone, Frost Lich Jaina Mechs: Galvanizer, Mechwarper, Magnetic cards Demons: Ectomancy, Sacrificial Pact, Sense Demons Murlocs: Murloc Warleader, Underbelly Angler, Old Murk-Eye - basically anything that has Murloc written on it Dragons: Duskbreaker, Wyrmrest Agent, Drakonid Operative, Twilight Guardian Beasts: Crackling Razormaw, Master's Call, Scavenging Hyena, Revenge of the Wild Pirates: Ship's Cannon, Patches the Pirate Totems: Thing from Below, Totemic Surge, Splitting Axe Some Tribe combinations favour specific classes (like Elemental for Mages and Beasts for Hunters and Druids) or are strictly restricted to them (Totems and Demons), while classes like Shaman enjoy the freedom of being decent for various deck styles.
      Don't forget to grab your Hungry Crab, Golakka Crawler and a board clear - you are going to need them! Menagerie cards will also buff nicely your entire board.
