Gadgetzan Jouster is actually better than Zombie Chow for control decks, such as ramp druid and control warrior. Since the chance that you take the other Jouster from your deck is really, really small, it will be always a 2/3 against aggro (the reason you would add Zombie Chow in your deck). But, contrary to Chow, he is not a dead card in your hand if you draw it late. For this reason, adding two of it is not counter-productive as is adding two Zombie Chows.

Nope.

 

If you do the maths, you'll see that a high curve control deck only wins a joust with between 60 and 70% consistency against even a deck like Hybrid Hunter which is essentially just aggression with a couple of Highmanes thrown in.

 

Even taking the extreme example of outright Control Warrior vs outright Face Hunter you're still only 80% favoured. Why take the risk? Their health is not a relevant part of the win condition, only yours is, and playing a 1/2 on turn 1 is just going to get you killed.

 

Even worse when you start to scale things down further, if you're playing a Control deck vs a Midrange deck like Mid Pally, you're now only 50-55% favoured. That's awful! What happens when you play your turn 1 1/2, and they respond with a 2/3 Chow. I'll tell you what, you lose the board straight away and probably lose the game.

 

Not worth the risk, just play Chow.

Clockwork Gnome's description refers to Spare parts has "another 1-mana card that can be played with Undertaker"... Undertaker only triggers when you play minions, not spells. You could mention that legendary card that gives a Mech every time you play a 1-mana spell.

Thanks. I have no idea what I was even thinking when I wrote that, but obviously Undertaker is not what I meant. Surprised someone hasn't caught that already. Thank you!

You wrote, "Young Dragonhawk is very really seen in Constructed". I think you meant that it is very rarely seen in Constructed. Anyway, thanks for the great work!

In the Arena section of Arcane Anomaly:
"Having some 1 Mana minions in your deck can be important to be allow you to take the initiative"
Some work needs to be done on that part of the sentence, I'm not sure what, but it's difficult to read.

Murloc Tidecaller's and Grimscale Oracle's images still have the old text. I'm not sure if their description should be changed considering the new effects and the potential upcoming Murloc support, but the images should definitely be changed to have the new text.

The link for Patches the Pirate is incorrect. The correct link is http://www.icy-veins.com/hearthstone/cards/neutral/patches-the-pirate

(EDIT: The same issue seems to go for all neutral MSG legendaries. It looks to me that most have pages now, but I can only get to them by editing the URL in my browser's address bar.)

Thank you for pointing that out. We will get that fixed as soon as possible.

update??

If you mean Small-Time Buccaneer, the description is up-to-date. The tooltip is sadly provided by a third party, so we have to wait until it gets updated. We apologize for the inconvenience.

      Competitive Hearthstone fans can look forward to more tournaments and bigger cash payouts in 2018.

      Blizzard announced a set of sweeping changes to the way the HCT Tour will be organized in 2018. The new "Masters System" promises to make it easier than ever for professional Hearthstone players to win prizes and make it out to international events.
      Announced today on the official Hearthstone blog, the Hearthstone Masters System promises to make sweeping changes and improvements to Hearthstone's competitive tournament infrastructure:
      The marquee change to the HCT circuit will be the addition of "Masters Tiers". The rolling total of a player's HCT points for the previous three seasons will determine a player's Masters Tier, and each tier will reward players with increasing benefits. A 3-Star Master, the highest tier, is able to receive a $2500 appearance bonus for attending up to three HCT events per season, which can add up to a $22,500 per year in appearance fees alone! All three tiers will also offer free invitations to monthly online tournaments with cash prizes, as well as "end-of-year commemorative swag", which I can only assume is sweet, exclusive card backs.
       
      Blizzard will also be changing the way that qualification works for HCT Playoff events. Players will automatically qualify for the HCT Playoffs by achieving a single-season HCT Point total. The point total for season one of 2018 is 45 points, but Blizzard noted that this may change based upon the season and region of competition. As part of these changes, HCT Points will now be rewarded for the top three ladder finishes a player posts in each season instead of being handed out each month.
      Players will also be able to qualify for a season's playoffs through the brand new Hearthstone Challengers program, which appears to be a re-branding of the previous Tavern Hero system. Eight players will be able to qualify for the playoffs through the Hearthstone Challengers program each season, but the specific nature of these new qualifying tournaments has yet to be announced.
      In addition to a promising an increased number of HCT tour stops, Blizzard will be giving out additional cash rewards to the top ten Hearthstone teams each season. Each team can lock-in three players per season, and the top ten HCT-point-earning teams on the season will take home a hefty prize. With the prizes for first and second place separated by $3000 per player, this should add a fresh and exciting element of team-focused drama to Hearthstone tournaments in 2018. 

      Though the long-term effects of today's announcement remain to be seen, Blizzard's message of increased commitment to competitive Hearthstone promises to be a massive step forward for the community. A notable increase to the number of competitive events and the size of cash payouts sends a tremendous vote of confidence to members of the competitive Hearthstone scene, and sets 2018 up to be the biggest year in Hearthstone history.

      It was noticed that the Hunter Death Knight's Hero Power doesn't include any Beasts from Kobolds & Catacombs. The Hearthstone team is going to amend that in the near future.
      The Build-A-Beast Hero Power doesn't include any Beasts from the new K&C expansion and subsequently wouldn't include any new Beasts from future expansions. Mike Donais explained that this was done because of issues with translating the Custom Zombeast cards in all of the languages that Hearthstone is available. Obviously, this caused an outrage during the past weekend.
      Thankfully, Team 6 listened to the community's concerns and they agreed to expand the pool of Beasts, from which you can craft your custom Zombeast. This is going to happen for Kobolds & Catacombs at some point in the future - perhaps after the Christmas vacations. There will also be support for Beasts from future expansions, but some of them may be excluded for balance reasons (like King of Beasts).

      Greetings,

      Many players have noticed that Deathstalker Rexxar’s Hero Power does not include any of the new Beasts that were added with the Kobolds & Catacombs expansion.

      Since then, some players have provided constructive feedback regarding the state of Deathstalker Rexxar, and we agreed that a change to the Hero Power was warranted.

      As such, we will be updating Deathstalker Rexxar’s Hero Power to include new Beasts going forward. Please be patient, as this is a fairly complicated endeavor and we may need to start with a smaller change before a more permanent solution is implemented. We don’t have a date for this change to share with you today, but we will provide more information once we have it.

      Please also note that as new Beasts are released, we may need to mark some of them as exempt for various reasons, much like how King of Beasts is currently excluded from the pool of Beasts that Deathstalker Rexxar’s Hero Power can pull from. 

      Thank you for providing constructive feedback. We see your love and passion for Hearthstone and believe that the best way to make Hearthstone better is to do so together.

      See you all in the Tavern! (source)
