Just wanted to point out that you say it's value appears low. but what you are saying is that it is an efficient choice. The words are hard to understand.

Which minion?

he means on stoneskin gargoyle obv. I am thinking that this card has some spot in some spots where you're stranded in needing cards like these.

About King Mukla,

 

He can be combo-d effectively with lorewalker cho the turn before so that the bananas become moot while cho is in play, and cho can be played turn 2 so its an instant set up.

You say Gnomish Experimenter is a terrible pick in Arena, but Heartharena and Arenavalue rate it as average pick, and there's a video in which Kripp speaks in its defence. Maybe it would make you rethink your evaluation of the card?

While the Hobgoblin is weak, I think it's worth pointing out that at least for a Paladin it's not the worst, and probably above Tier 7 (Bad); it turns your hero power into a 3/3 generator, which means that just playing it out and having 2 mana left gives you a 2/3 and a 3/3 for 5 mana.  Add in cards like Muster for Battle, or a rare like Imp Master and It's not shabby.

Alarmarrow-10x10.pngo bot is really strong with druid in constructed, since all those times you innervate it out this is very hard to deal with on turn 1. Your opponent has to coin a 3 damage removal which messes up their game play if they're rushing, and without that removal it could be auto win smile.png Those times it dies you don't lose a lot of tempo since it only costed 3 to play as a soft taunt, early taunts like shield bearer combo with it too.

I would like to add something to this. You say that "Gnomish Experimenter could be used in a deck that plays an extremely high ratio of spells, such as Miracle Rogue or Freeze Mage." You then proceed by formulating the risks in such a serious way that it essentially shoots down any hopes someone could've had of using it. I really think that, if you are running Miracle Rogue or Freeze Mage, you should consider either using this card as soon as you can(thus limiting the chance that you draw those key minions) or simply AFTER drawing those minions. Rogue, in particular, can surely find use to a 1-mana card as a cheap activator of Combo cards.

Of course it's not 100% reliable, but such is the nature of constructed play. It is expected to lose some games as long as you win more games than you lose. I see this card making you lose ridiculously bad a really small number of games in Miracle Rogue(potentially in Freeze Mage, depends which one exactly). In exchange you get a much needed draw/cycle effect that gets you a turn closer to that card you need so bad in the deck with a 3/2 for 3 mana! Crazy!

This is simply regarding a typo in Goblin Sapper. In the Arena section it's written "greats" when it should be "great".

I don't want to change the topic, but is this a correct way to report typos and is there a better way? I couldn't find anything in the rules about it.

About Hobgoblin. You say in the constructed section that there aren't enough interesting 1-attack minions to justify including it in a deck, but, right here on Icy Veins, you have a Legend deck that has been used in tournaments that uses Hobgoblin. I'm guessing you wrote this prior to seeing viable decks with it, I'm just pointing it out.

Yes, it is a correct way to report typos (mainly because it is one of only two, other being PM).

Hobgoblin still isn't a very competitive card. A lot of decks can reach legend, but would you really play mill rogue, fatigue mage or a beast druid to get to legend? Also, Murloc Warlock was used in tournament, but that doesn't mean it is good.

Well, it is viable, so there's justification to include it in a deck. The card description says otherwise, that's mainly why I said that.

I don't find using the same deck game after game to be enjoyable, doesn't matter which one. I usually climb ranks by cycling between at least 4 different decks and, if I find one lacking particularly in the meta, I change some things to try stuff out.

There's a typo in Lil' Exorcist's Constructed Play section. It talks about "a great deal of Deathrattle effects present in the metal". Surely you meant "meta" instead of "metal", otherwise I don't understand what exactly you meant.

To the Arcane Golem : Sottle, you changed the decription of card (after the nerf), but not the card and decklist itself.

And you mess up your innervate.

The Arena guide is like "the first-pick" so the tier of cards is considered as it was 1-5. picked card, so no combos.

This card is useless now as it no longer has charge. Cheers blizzard

I guess you're talking about Arcane Golem? I don't think it's useless, it's very dangerous for sure, but a 4/4 for 1 mana less can still do some work, it's just not very likely that you will play that on turn 3 which makes it very situational

Speaking of Arcane Golem, you guys still have the old cards with charge for the pictures

Moroes fits perfectly into my divine-shield aggro paladin deck.  When I make legendary with it, someday... you'll see.

I imagine I used a very similar deck to you to hit legend. Moroes was OK, but only shone in situations when the enemy had no clear at all. There's so much that can kill him and he is only really good when combined with Steward of Darkshire, which is targeted immediately when played.

The images of Murloc Warleader and Coldlight Seer still have the old text. I'm not sure if the description should be changed, considering the upcoming Murloc support and the fact that you no longer buff the opponent's Murlocs, but those images should definitely be changed to have the new text.

Noted, thanks! :)

      A new Legendary Warrior Minion has been revealed, marking the defeat of 25 million bosses in the Blackrock Crash Tavern Brawl.
       
      The dust has barely settled after the Blackrock Crash Part 1, but the Hearthstone player base has already smashed through 25 million Tavern Brawl bosses and earned the fourth and final FIRE FEST-E.V.I.L. card reveal. Meet the new Warrior Legendary, Armagedillo.

      It's a 6 mana 4/7 Beast with Taunt that gives +2/2 to every Taunt Minion in your hand at the end of your turn. It's reminiscent of Grimy Gadgeteer and Bolster - neither of which were played very often. Still, even under-appreciated mechanics like hand-buffing can be powerful on the right card.
      There aren't many great Taunt Minions in Warrior's arsenal right now, so this might be a sign that we can expect to see some in Saviors of Uldum.
      World of Warcraft players may recognize Armagedillo as a rare beast that spawns in the Uldum desert. It drops its tail as an item, which can be used as a mace. This one appears to have been kitted out with some serious ordnance by Blastmaster Boom.
      Check out our Saviors of Uldum hub for more info on the new expansion, plus all the latest card reveals.

      Arch-Villain Rafaam joins the fray this week as the Blackrock Crash continues.
       
      The second week of the Blackrock Crash has kicked off today, continuing the FIRE FEST-E.V.I.L. celebrations. It's a Dungeon Run-style Tavern Brawl: pick a member of the League of E.V.I.L. to play as and fight through a gauntlet of eight bosses, building your deck as you go.
      It's broadly the same as Part 1, but this time Arch-Villain Rafaam joins the fray as a playable hero. Nice of him to lend a hand and all, but I think we've got this - Hearthstone players have already defeated 25 million Blackrock Crash bosses.
      The Big Bad himself is pretty powerful, as you might expect. His starting deck is decent and includes two amazing treasures in Master Scheme and Gloves of Mugging. His Hero Power, Arch-Villainy, steals a card from your opponents deck then, if it's a Minion, puts it onto the board immediately.
      As before, beat the first four bosses of the Brawl to earn a Saviors of Uldum pack to open when the next expansion releases. Beat all eight with Rafaam and you'll earn a Golden copy of Rafaam's Scheme. Perfect for discounting your Golden Jumbo Imp.

      (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.
