New Hearthstone Expansion Announced: The Boomsday Project [Updated]

Recommended Posts

The second expansion of the Year of the Raven was indeed related to Netherstorm, home of the unforgettable Dr. Boom, and it's called the Boomsday Project. Apart from the new features, five cards were also revealed.

The announcement video has an appropriate 80s science fiction movie vibe, featuring notable faces from the Hearthstone team.

It's Goblins vs Gnomes 2.0 as the Mech tribe is definitely going to return with a vengeance! There's a new keyword called Magnetic: Magnetic minions can either be played on their own or they can be fused with a Mech minion that's on the board to add to their health, attack and ability.

Omega cards can also be played regularly. However, if you play them at 10 Mana Crystals, you will get a powerful boost. The Battlecry assures that the OP version cannot be cheated out. Druid, the only class that can ramp its Mana up, will surely find a use for this type of minion. Curiously enough, the Omega Defender isn't a Mech, even though it definitely looks like one.

Projects are powerful spells, that will benefit both players. Assumedly, all classes will have a Project spell. "Research" and "Weapons" Projects were teased, with the latter probably belonging to Warrior.

We've seen all kinds of Legendary cards: minions, Quests, Weapons, Hero cards. Now it's time for Legendary Spells to make their appearance. I wonder if there are any special rules when it comes to Discovering or playing discounted versions of Legendary Spells, because they can potentially be powerful. Here's the Rogue one:

That's all with the new features, but don't forget: The Boomsday Project isn't all about mechs and projects. It's also about science, crazy discoveries and the manipulation of elements. Under this thematic, we can find the Shaman Legendary minion:

It's almost certain that Dr. Boom will be making a grand return for this Hearthstone Expansion; after all, he's the big boss on The Boomsday Project. He was shortly teased in the announcement video: unfortunately, this time around not all classes will be able to enjoy the Dr. Boom goodness as he looks like a Warrior card. Lord Jaraxxus will also reinvent himself as a new Warlock Hero skin: Mecha-Jaraxxus!

According to the official announcement post, the new expansion will go live on August 7, 2018 - a week earlier than August expansions from previous years. The official site of The Boomsday Project is also up!

The Boomsday Project will also bring along new PvE Adventure content: The Puzzle Lab! It will go live on August 21 and from the description on the official site, it looks slightly different from the Dungeon Run and the Missions. Players will have to participate in successful experiments against nine bosses. These include goals like "Lethal", which is kill the enemy in one turn; Mirror, which requires you to create a perfect copy of your opponent's board; Board Clear; and Survival, which requires you stay alive from the opponent's attacks! You will earn the following card back for completing The Puzzle Lab:

Here is the new Boomsday board:

The login launch reward for The Boomsday Project will be three packs and a random Class Legendary card. A card reveal livestream will be held on July 23 at 10:00 am PST on the official Hearthstone Twitch channel.

Pre-ordering The Boomsday Project has some additional perks compared to other expansions and two different options. You can preorder the normal Bundle which will contain 50 The Boomsday Project packs, a random Golden Legendary card from the expansion and the Mecha-Jaraxxus card back. Or you can get the Mega Bundle, which contains 80 packs, a random Golden Legendary, the Mecha-Jaraxxus card back and the Mecha-Jaraxxus Warlock Hero skin.

Was not expecting it to be that Explosive though 😄 !

Okay, this looks interesting, but I find myself questioning a few things.

1. The Magnetic cards. Will they not bring back old school silence decks, like Priest hd going for a while perhaps? It would invalidate the effect, and perhaps make people less enthusiastic about the mechanic. Though it could be good to make some kamikaze cards with the spiderbot, if played correctly.

2. Omega cards. They say it will gain an additional effect once you have 10 mana, though will they still only cost their normal price, or is it something where you need to spend ten mana too? I think the first, but you can never be sure. Regardless , Druids will still love them.

3. What the heck is with that Rogue legendary spell? Is it meant for Kingsbane decks by any chance? A guarantee to get the weapon, as much pump for it as possible, and then just keep redrawing that weapon over and over? Could be a mean combo if you also include the Fal'Dorei Spider I suppose? Gonna be interesting to see what people can do with it.

4. How much are the mega pack actually going to cost? Because having a basically *deluxe pack* makes me think it'll be REALLY expensive.

As for Projects, I have no questions. I find them interesting, though unlikely to be played. How often do you want to give 2 mana crystals to your opponent for example? We'll have to see what the other ones are, but it's rare cards that give your opponents benefits are used much.

dose the fussing of a magnetic minion to another one triggers their deathrattle (since the minion is destroyed) ?

 

From what I can tell, no. It will add the death rattle effect to the minion you magnetize it with. It will likely be cast like a buff spell.

Man i really like the way how Blizzard announces stuff. They are very creative at this point and it feels like they really enjoy the videos with real actors.

Well, silence priest wanted to silence its own stuff really. For other decks, playing lots of silence comes at a cost. And you have the option not to fuse the minion and just play it on its own. And like you say, in the case of spiderbot you probably will generally want to fuse it, and kill the resulting minion too. Very powerful effect potentially, if any hunter decks want it.

It’ll be interesting to see how it impacts wild too. Should be some pretty powerful wild mech decks available if the cards are even remotely viable for Standard.

though the cringe level was over 9000, considering it is the first expansion announcement without ben brode, they did a very (surprisingly) good job

I am not sure how much I like these cards.  Magnetic is super cool, but it is really just conditional charge, but better.  Sure it can get wrecked by silence, but that is really strong.  Plus spider bomb is pretty okay.  As it stands, it might see play in hunter decks, without the magnetize, especially slow ones, possibly a replacement for deadly shot, and will most definitely see play in mech hunter, if such a deck exists. 

 

I really like the Omega cards, cards that are, theoretically, good if you play them on curve, yet not dead draws late in the game.  The omega defender seems okay, its kind of like a tar creeper that isn't a dead draw against control, but it is going to be really meta game dependent.  a 2/6 for 4 is pretty meh.  It really depends on the aggressive deck and how impactful 2 attack minions are, if you see a lot of aggro decks that run a ton of 1 or 2 health minions, then this has a shot of seeing play, if the threats they play are more resilient, then this seems a lot less good. 

 

I don't like project cards.  The entire design of them basically means they are either going to be busted or worthless, and probably zero in between (think cold light oracle).  Completely symmetrical effects like this are always worse for the person who plays them because they cost that person mana and a card.  Which means in order to "break the synergy" you have to really abuse the effect the card has, which generally means you do something completely degenerate with it.  They are, in essence, a type of card that will never see play fairly, and I don't really care for that.  As for biology project, meh, druid has better ramp options.  An aggro deck may be able to abuse the cheap ramp since they tend to use mana far more efficiently then other deck types, but I doubt it, ramping your opponent into flame strikes is bad. 

 

The rogue spell is also completely unexciting.  Legendary spells will be cool, but a spell like this really only has a home in a super aggressive deck.  Since you can't hold more then 10 cards in your hand, you can't use it to find combo pieces.  You could use it in some sort of deck that wants to have zero cards in their deck (togwaggle decks perhaps, or kingsbane), but kingsbane the biggest home for something like that has so many random combo pieces that it just wants to draw throughout the match, that this doesn't really work, by the time the voltron sword is assembled and you have valera the hallowed out you have probably already drawn through most  of you deck, making this way less attractive.  HOWEVER, in a deck that wants to dump its hand as quickly as possible, this can basically read, draw 10 for 5 mana.  Which is insane, and lets be honest, if a control deck can fight through that, you wouldn't have won anyways, so the downside of having nothing left in your deck for gas is irrelevant in 95% of the match ups you want the card for, and the fatigue damage isn't going to add up fast enough to be a deciding factor either.  In short, really strong in aggro decks, probably no where else (it is also odd as well, so meh?)

 

The shaman legendary also seems really strong in aggro decks.  As a value card it looks really cool in control or midrange decks, but my intuition tells me that this just won't work out well.  It is conditional, and pretty meh if you have to play it without a spell, plus shamans don't have the best spells for that sort of thing.  Still might see play in some sort of janky combo deck or along side the spell stone in overload shaman (has some interesting synergies there, especially upping your overlord cost), but as far as a general good card in control oriented lists, probably not.  HOWEVER, this card is great in aggro decks.  Being able to double up on something as simple as zap is amazing, and it also means lava burst does 10 damage, rock biter + doomhammer is 16 with it.  Even lightning bolt is a fire ball.  At least it isn't even.  I am not excited for this.

 

TL:DR, Not incredibly excited, both legendary cards are silly strong in aggro decks, project cards are either going to be useless or used for degenerate shenanigans, and magnetize will probably just be abused as a conditional charge for aggro decks.  What a time to be alive.

Well...looks like I was nearly correct with my prediction:

"I still expect something Netherstorm-based...maybe with a lot of Bloodelves, Ethereals and a comeback of Dr. Boom (but hopefully not). I can also imagine some sort of legendary spells for each class."

Anyways...Electra Stormsurge seems extremely strong. For only three mana it can easily combo with a lot of spells (Bloodlust *cough cough*) and even if it turns out to be not powerful enough with current spells, there is a huge potential with upcoming ones...not to mention the legendary spells.

As for projects. Yeah, they seem not that exciting at first glance. But if the expansion is somehow designed around them they could become quite important. I would view it like that: if your deck is built around the bonus from the respective project-spells you might get way more value out of it then your opponent. As for "Biology Project" remember that the manacrystals are not empty. So you get immediate value before your opponent does. Yes, your opponent will not have to spend a card, nor the costs of one mana but it still...

I assume its deathrattle will trigger and kill something if the opponent has minions. The minion is already in play when explosive runes hits, so it should all work.

      Doom in the Tomb is now live and the update comes with all-new 1,000 Win Portrait Rewards and 23 cards that are temporarily stepping out of Wild back into Standard. Note that the cards will remain in Standard until the next major update and exact end dates and times will be announced in the weeks ahead.

      A new Hearthstone update has just arrived, featuring the “Doom in the Tomb” Hallow’s End event, Wild cards temporarily returning to Standard, portrait rewards for dedicated Hearthstone players, and much more!
      New Event - Doom in the Tomb!

      Pack your torches and latch your helmets, Heroes. The Headless Horseman has infiltrated Uldum’s deserted desert tombs, outfitted himself with powerful relics, and has set his sights on besting the battling Leagues! The new Doom in the Tomb event starts today, October 8, and will last until October 30. Here’s what’s in store:

      Week 1: Doom in the Tomb, Part 1
      Gear up with your favorite member from the League of E.V.I.L and delve into the Haunted Temple, full of the baddest bosses in Uldum! The clock is running, too – race to set the record for the fastest Temple run! Rewards Complete a run in under 1 hour and earn a Rastakhan’s Rumble Card Pack. Complete a run in under 40 minutes to earn a Golden Common Ancient Mysteries!
      Week 2: Doom in the Tomb, Part 2
      E.V.I.L has their turn, and now it’s up to Reno and the League of Explorers to join the run and flex their Temple diving speed. New enemies and challenges await!

      Rewards Complete a run in under 1 hour and receive a Golden Common Temple Berserker Complete a run in under 40 minutes to earn a Golden Rare Generous Mummy
      Week 3: The Haunted Carousel
      Get ready for the big mix-up! In this Tavern Brawl, you’ll need to strategize around minions constantly rotating board positions – all while controlling the Horseman’s time-shifted Dreadsteeds!

      Rewards Summon 100 Dreadsteeds to earn a Rise of Shadows Card Pack Dual-Class Heroes

      The Dual-Class Arena Hallow’s Eve dress-up party is back! When you start an Arena run during the Doom in the Tomb event, you’ll choose a Hero, then a Hero Power, and card offerings will feature cards from BOTH of those classes, in addition to neutral cards.
      Players who have an active Arena run when this begins will have their current run ended and will receive an Arena Ticket as compensation. To ensure that players have a chance to try out this devilish dual-class deck-building dress-up party, anyone who logs in during each of the first two weeks will receive one Arena Ticket per week! This event coincides with our normal Arena rotation. The new Arena sets in rotation are as follows: Curse of Naxxramas Goblins vs. Gnomes Blackrock Mountain The Grand Tournament League of Explorers Whispers of the Old Gods One Night in Karazhan Mean Streets of Gadgetzan Journey to Un'Goro Knights of the Frozen Throne Kobolds & Catacombs Hex & Flex Bundles

      Hex Bundle
      If you thought the League of E.V.I.L. was securely under wraps, think again! Arch-Villain Rafaam has leveraged his lackeys and put together the Hex Bundle, 20 Rise of Shadows card packs and a random Rise of Shadows Legendary card at the discounted price of $19.99 USD. Flex Bundle
      Reno’s vest just doesn’t have room for bulging biceps AND stacks of card packs. That’s why he’s whipped together the Flex Bundle! Get 20 Saviors of Uldum packs and a random Saviors of Uldum Legendary card at the discounted price of $19.99 USD. Standard Shake-Up

      Starting with today’s patch and lasting until our next major update, 23 cards from across Hearthstone history are temporarily stepping out of Wild and back into Standard. To ensure that everyone can participate in this meta-mixing event, we’ll be granting everyone free copies of each card (these copies cannot be disenchanted or crafted) so they can add these heavy-hitters to their decks and get straight into the action. These cards will be considered "event" cards, which essentially means that they're temporary copies and not permanent additions to your collection. Even if you already own the cards you'll still receive these event copies, and when the event ends they'll disappear.
      IMPORTANT NOTE: While these cards were re-introduced during the Doom in the Tomb event, they will remain in Standard past the event's conclusion, until the launch of our next major update. More details will be shared, including exact end dates and times, in the coming weeks.

      The time has come for dedicated Hearthstone players to flex their Hero mastery! We’re introducing new portraits earned by achieving 1,000 Ranked or Arena wins with each class. Wins earned before this update goes live will retroactively count towards these totals.

      UPDATE
      Placeholder for tweet 1180177096972222464 Blizzard (Source)
      Legends have told of dangers lurking within the Haunted Temple of Uldum and the grand ancient treasures they conceal. Of course, “treasure” was all anyone had to mention to get Reno and Rafaam on board, and now their sights are set on acquiring the temple’s powerful artifacts for their own campaigns!
      It won’t be an easy task, though. While our Heroes and Villains battle to push deeper through the Haunted Temple, the Headless Horseman has resorted to a nefarious contingency and opened a sealed sarcophagus full of WILD terrors. Now it will be up to you to aid the conquests of good, or E.V.I.L, in a race to uncover the tomb’s precious secrets and escape the doom in the tomb!

      Step into the Haunted Tomb
      The spooky spelunking adventures begin at 10:00 AM PT on October 8 and end at 9:00 AM PT on October 30 – three weeks packed full of new activities to participate in:

      Today we get a look at some of the smaller stuff coming up in Hearthstone's future, including new events like dual-class arenas, 23 old cards returning to standard (Ragnaros and N'zoth were mentioned), new class portraits for 1000 wins, and plenty of quality of life improvements!
      Behind the Doors (source)
      While we’re constantly recruiting lackeys, tinkering with experimental tech, and delving into dusty tombs to bring you new Hearthstone expansions and Adventures, we’re also hard at work on some awesome, albeit less flashy, new stuff. In this blog we’ll shine a light on some of the smaller, but still exciting new features, events, and changes coming to Hearthstone in the near future.

       
      Adding More Events

      After the overwhelmingly positive response to the recent Fire Fest-E.V.I.L. event, we’re looking for more opportunities to introduce even more large-scale in-game events with rewards, themed Tavern Brawls, and changes that could temporarily (or permanently!) create fun new Hearthstone experiences for players.
      We’re starting off with a new event in just a couple weeks featuring Dungeon Run-inspired Tavern Brawls, dual-class Arenas, Legendary quest rewards, and some meta-shifting changes outlined in the “Shaking up Standard Play” section below.
      We’ll have more to share on this sensationally spooky event on October 4, but in the meantime . . . try not to lose your head!
       

      Shaking up Standard Play

      Now that the Saviors of Uldum Standard ladder experience has solidified, we think it’s a great time to throw a wrench or two (or twenty-three) in the gears. We’re going to be pulling some of the most popular and game-changing cards from across Hearthstone history, including
      Ragnaros the Firelord and N'Zoth, the Corruptor, out of Wild and dropping them back into Standard for a limited time. To ensure that everyone can participate in this meta-mixing event, we’ll be granting everyone free copies of each card (these copies cannot be disenchanted or crafted) so they can add these heavy-hitters to their decks and get them into the action.
      We’ll be sharing more details (including the full list of 23 cards) in a blog update on October 4. Stay tuned!

      1,000 Win Class Portraits
      Looking ahead, we want to continue celebrating personal successes and milestones for all you dedicated Hearthstone players. Our next major update will introduce some really cool new portraits that you can earn by earning 1,000 wins with each class. Wins earned before this update goes live will retroactively count towards these totals. Take a look at a couple of examples below and start stacking up those wins!



      Quality of Life Improvements
       
      Alternate Search Terms
      We want it to be easier to quickly find the cards you’re looking for while deckbuilding, so we’re adding alternate search terms for some hard-to-type cards. We’ll be adding common misspellings and simplified versions of leetspeak card names (found on some Mech minions). For example, searching “snip” or “snap” will now show you SN1P-SN4P. While this feature will only be enabled for a few commonly misspelled cards at first, we’ll be able to add even more alternate search terms as needed.
      This feature will also support languages other than English. For example, SN1P-SN4P in Latin American Spanish is “CL1C-CL4C”, so searching “clic” would return the expected results. Quest Changes
      While not included in our next major update, here’s a preview of some of the changes we’re making to quests a little further down the line.
      We’re cutting some of the less popular daily quests and tuning down some of their requirements to make them quicker and easier to complete. We’ll also be adding some new quests to the pool to mix things up! We split most daily quests into two buckets: Easy (50g) and Slightly More Difficult (60g). Rerolling a Slightly More Difficult (60g) quest (like Play 10 Beasts) always gives you an Easy (50g) quest, so players can be guaranteed to get an Easy quest every day if they want. We love  Murlocs and Pirates as much as anyone, but it should be your choice if you decide to complete their quests.
      We’re excited to be bringing these new features, events, and other changes to Hearthstone soon. Please let us know what you think on social media or the official Hearthstone forums. Until then, we’ll see you in the Tavern!
