Recommended Posts

The game client is now ready for the release of Rastakhan's Rumble next month. The new Classic cards have also been patched into the game.

With the announcement of the Rastakhan's Rumble expansion during BlizzCon, the team was quick to patch it in the game in preparation for the December 4 release.

You can already pre-purchase the new expansion with two options: the full Bundle contains 50 packs, the Ready to Rumble! card back and the new Shaman skin, King Rastakhan.

The more affordable Challenger's Bundle includes 17 packs and the thematic card back.

Hearthstone is also celebrating reaching 100 million players. Log in between November 7-11 to receive 6 The Boomsday Project packs and repeatable Players Quests that you can complete with your friends.

This patch finally adds the new Classic cards for Mage, Rogue and Warlock.

The classic cards are very... fair... I guess is the best way to describe them. Not terrible, not great either, not even mediocre, just... fair and thematic. Nothing like they ones that went to the HoF (RIP Ice Block, you will never be forgotten). Still I guess they'll be useful for new players if nothing else.

They're pretty bad most of the time. Keep in mind this is classic cards NOT basic cards.

Let's say that you are a free player that have joined the game not that time ago. You win a pack, you open it... yay, an epic!
Then you discovered an ice block, and you had found a card that in the right meta can be really important, a good step in the direction of becoming a good player, one that can make a t1 deck.

Now you discover a Icicle, a card that you'll use for some time, maybe, or maybe not. 1/4 of an epic of choice.

 

I don't think that this card are fair, I think that the commons can be fair, but the epic is trash. Where fair means "never played by a real deck in the first 20 ranks", and trahs means "people will say very bad world when they'll find this card in a pack instead of I don't know, a prep or a brawl".

      Chinese streamer YiLingShu has revealed a new Rogue card from Saviors of Uldum on the streaming platform Douyu.
       
      Chinese streamer YiLingShu has revealed a new Rogue card from Saviors of Uldum on the streaming platform Douyu: Bazaar Mugger.

      It's a fine addition to Rogue's kit of Burgle-themed cards. The "from another class" text is in keeping with the new design philosophy for the mechanic which enables cards like Vendetta to be active in Rogue mirror matches. Older cards such as Blink Fox and Burgle itself tend to say "from your opponent's class". Pilfer, a Classic set card, was changed in Patch 9.14 to reflect the commitment to the new direction.

      Hunter's latest additions are two massive creepy-crawlies with powerful effects.
       
       
      Two new Saviors of Uldum cards have been revealed via the PlayHearthstone Instagram story. This time, it's a pair of massive creepy-crawlies for Hunter: Wild Bloodstinger and Scarlet Webweaver.

      Wild Bloodstinger is slightly over-statted as a 6 Mana 6/9, but it will have to do battle with a Minion from your opponent's hand before you get to use those stats. This kind of effect has been seen occasionally before in Hearthstone: Dirty Rat was a much-loved (and much-hated) combo disruption card that denied many a Raza the Chained before they rotated to Wild together. Unseen Saboteur is a similar option in the current Standard card pool, but can be wildly inconsistent.
      Scarlet Webweaver is pretty much a Dreampetal Florist for Beasts. You could play King Krush for 4 Mana and do some big damage. You could also play Tundra Rhino for 0 Mana and do some big damage. The possibilities are endless.
      Taken together, these cards suggest Hunter might be playing with some bigger beasts than usual in Saviors of Uldum. This could be a nice change of pace after six months of messing around with Springpaw and various other 1/1s.

      A new Druid Spell has been revealed on Firebat's Youtube channel - and it looks to have a lot of untapped potential.
       
      Firebat has shared his exclusive Saviors of Uldum card reveal on Youtube: Hidden Oasis!

      The card has huge synergy with the new Druid quest, Untapped Potential, and makes it look potentially very strong - the card can be played on turn 6 with both of its Choose One effects combined every time if you're willing to be patient.

      That's all of today's scheduled card reveals - the next one is slated for Sunday at 6.00 AM BST, although it's always possible that we get some surprise reveals in the interim. See you then!

      The Legendary Quest card for Paladin in Saviors of Uldum has been revealed by Spanish Youtuber Atlas (alongside an adorable 1-drop that will help you complete it).
       
      The Legendary Quest card for Paladin in Saviors of Uldum has been revealed by Spanish Youtuber Atlas (alongside an adorable 1-drop that will help you complete it).
      It's all about playing minions with Reborn, the new expansion keyword. Reborn Minions come back with 1 Health the first time they die, making them especially tough to get rid of (and great to copy with Emperor Wraps, the Quest reward.)
      Alongside Making Mummies we also got Murmy, a new 1 Mana 1/1 Murloc with Reborn.

       
      Seems like Paladin's identity in Saviors of Uldum is beginning to take shape: it's playing a lot of dudes with 1 Health, whether drawing them with Salhet's Pride, generating them with Sandwasp Queen, or resurrecting them with the Reborn keyword.
      Murmy has actually been teased already during a Reddit developer AMA. Asked if there were any cute cards forthcoming in Saviors of Uldum, designer Alec Dawson said:
      Alec Dawson (/u/HS_Alec)
      There are definitely a few in this expansion, especially if you like mummies! So there you have it. Murmy. Cute. In an undead, fish monster sort of way.
      (Also quite probably a terror in Murloc Shaman.)

      A new Warlock card has been revealed by the Chinese streamer 瓦莉拉 (Valeera). It's the first of 51 Saviors of Uldum cards to be revealed at scheduled times by community figures and content creators.
       
      A new Warlock card has been revealed by the Chinese streamer 瓦莉拉 (Valeera). It's the first of 51 Saviors of Uldum cards to be revealed at scheduled times by community figures and content creators.
      It's a new 2 Mana 2/1 Rare for Warlock. Here's Expired Merchant:

      This kind of targeted discard effect has been seen before on Shriek and Reckless Diretroll - it's a nice way of mitigating the randomness of the discard mechanic. In this case it can be used to duplicate one of your power cards. That could mean an extra copy of Mountain Giant, endless chains of Soulwardens and more.
      Pour one out for the Wild players though - one Bloodreaver Gul'dan was bad enough.
