Blizzard today clarified how Arcane Dust refunds and Basic card replacements are going to work in Hearthstone's upcoming patch.

Hey all,

We wanted to give some additional information on how Arcane Dust refunds and Basic card replacements will work in our upcoming update:

  • All players who have the old Basic cards (Vanish and Mind Blast) will automatically receive the new Basic cards (Plaguebringer and Radiance) once this update is live.
  • If you have Wild unlocked, you’ll keep Vanish and Mind Blast as Hall of Fame Commons. If not, you’ll receive an equivalent amount of dust for all Golden and non-Golden copies in your collection.
  • Standard decks will have Vanish and Mind Blast replaced with Plaguebringer and Radiance.

For more information on the new Hall of Fame additions, new Basic cards, and new Classic cards, check out our Developer Insights blog here.

I don't see why they are replacing Vanish/Mind Blast in decks, considering that they DON'T fulfill the same roll. Guess Blizz STILL doesn't know their own game.

Will they still have a basic mark, or will they get some rarity to be crafted by new players?

From the pictures we have seen, they will have Common rarity. I believe they will be craftable by new players. This is the only rationale for "refunding" dust to non-Wild players - so that they can use the dust to craft the cards if ever they become Wild players. Otherwise it makes no sense to refund cards which were never craftable so far.

      (Times pictured are in BST)
      The full schedule of community card reveals for Saviors of Uldum has been added to the Hearthstone website.
      It's become standard during expansion buildups for Blizzard to give a few cards to popular content creators to share, and Saviors of Uldum will be continuing the tradition.
      The schedule includes a total of 51 cards to be revealed by various sources from across the Hearthstone community - you can click through a card to find out where it will be revealed. The first one will be shown on the Chinese streaming platform Huya on July 19th; the first English language card reveal looks to be on Firebat's Youtube channel on the same day.
      Alongside reveal times, we get to see snippets of artwork for the new cards, so let the speculation begin. (Is that Heistbaron Togwaggle in the artwork of the final card to be revealed?)
      In Rise of Shadows, streamers received their cards locked inside fiendish puzzle boxes. This resulted in some memorable solutions. Here's hoping we have more shenanigans to look forward to.
      Check out our Saviors of Uldum hub for more information on the expansion and every card revealed thus far.

      The Plague card for Shaman has been revealed on Twitter, the third of four cards to be revealed as rewards for the FIRE FEST-E.V.I.L. community challenge.
       
      The Plague card for Shaman has been revealed by the Hearthstone Twitter account: Plague of Murlocs!

      This is the third card revealed as part of the FIRE FEST-E.V.I.L. community challenge. That means that in just five days, the Hearthstone playerbase has defeated around 19 millionBlackrock Crash bosses. Give yourselves a collective pat on the back. Don't stop just yet though; a fourth and final card will be revealed at 25 million boss wins (and this last one will be a Legendary).
      Plague of Murlocs itself is a pretty powerful-looking card. Shaman can't answer Mountain Giant + Conjurer's Calling with any real consistency right now, so this seems like a welcome answer - although it won't do much against opponents who are playing, well, Murloc Shaman. It could even be a buff to your own board in a pinch, since random Murlocs are probably better than Totems and 1/1s.
      Check out our Saviors of Uldum Hub to catch up on this weekend's other new card reveals, including yesterday's trio of 1-Health Paladin Minions.
