However, should be said that exactly the same counts for violet teacher, which is considered fine if you can create a minion with her.

Both have decent minion value, Illidan's drops are stronger, and if the enemy uses AOE he might not be able to finish Stormrage on the same turn.

Violet Teacher costs 4, most cards that can deal 5 damage are around that same cost, or more, so if it dies to 5 damage, you haven't really lost anything in terms of tempo. Illidan being more expensive, means that it can too easily be dealt with by cheaper cards, giving your opponent initiative to come back.

I just opened a pack that had a gold Black Knight. I noticed that he isn't being played in as many decks as Sylvanas or Dr. Boom. Would you recommend disenchanting for either of these two cards? Or do you think he is powerful enough to see play in future decks? Thanks.

If you don't have a strong collection already, I think it's pretty greedy to keep any Golden cards. You might want to consider crafting several Epics and Rares with the dust instead of one Legendary though, it will generally have a stronger impact overall.

Hi, I just opened up a normal troggzor out of a pack. My only other legendary that I have is Ysera. (The others I have disenchanted because King Krushx2, Flame Leviathan and Nozdurmu) Should I keep him? My collection of rares and epics is pretty small aswell.

Yes, you should probably disenchant. If Boom gets nerfed then Troggzor might see some play later, but there is no Boom nerf in sight.

Did anyone ever experience a bug where Kel'Thuzad only resurrects minions that die in your own turn? It is supposed to happen on every turn, right? Also the enemy's turn? And a killed sludgebelcher while the little slime stays alive should come back as a sludgebelcher, no?

Your Slude Belcher was probably killed by an end-of-turn-effect that triggered after kel-thuzad's effect (ragnaros / geddon)?

Is Illidan at least an OK card in demonlock? He`s my first legendary so I don`t want to disenchant him.

He is OK or rather slightly below average. He is good only if you can get him out of Voidcaller. On his own, he is not that great, but if you don't want to disenchant him, I guess you could include him in a demonlock deck.

Hello, I have just pulled out Hogger. Should I disenchant? 

 

Honestly I would like to build a deck to make it play, I feel very very bad to disenchant a legendary for only 400 dusts.

Hogger is sometimes used in specific enviroments, but not particularly often. The dust might be more valuable to you, but it's up to you.

Hello.

I got Deathwing in Gold.. should i disenchant?

I mostly play mage/Priest

If you have all the cards you need for your decks, keep it. If you still need some cards, disenchant it, because Deathwing isn't used in many decks.

There's no reason to ever play Grand Crusader, right?  Page says its useless but it's still listed on a few decks that don't already play Thaurissan or Sylvannas so I'm getting mixed messages here.

The card is used in Tempo Mage as an alternative to drawing cards. Quite a lot of Paladin class cards are spells and most of them are cheap spells that work well with the deck. However, it is basically useless in any other deck.

Wouldn't Ethereal Conjurer play that role better?  Different cardpool and a few more underwhelming cards but the choice of 3 can make up for that, and its cheaper, even if it has lower value on the board.

His minion value is just awful. Most decks will be able to get rid of him for 2 mana, that means you spent 3 mana to discover a spell.

Grand Crusader is not only used for spells, but also minions to keep you going.

      Quest rewards from today until July 30th will be doubled during the triumphant return of the Midsummer Fire Festival!
       
      Just in time for the upcoming Hearthstone expansion on August 7th, the Midsummer Fire Festival will reward double the gold for all quests completed from now until July 30th.
      Much like last year's festival, Ragnaros has come to "CURE US OF BOREDOM" by bringing us some fresh Hearthstone content. Announced in today's post were new emotes and a new Tavern Brawl, but we can probably also expect a number of daily login surprises if this year's festival is anything like last year's. Expect to hear plenty of amusing dialogue when you log in to Hearthstone over the next few weeks, including plenty of jabs at Ahune the frost elemental.

      A new Shaman card was revealed in today's blog post, which shed light on the backstory behind The Boomsday Project.
      A new Shaman card was revealed today on the official Blizzard blog in a post titled The Boomsday Project: Lab Logs Part 1:

       
      A 2/2 Elemental isn't quite worth 2 Mana, while the Battlecry effect on Menacing Nimbus isn't quite worth 1 Mana. Together, the 2 effects add up to a card which likely provides you with more than 2 Mana of value, which makes Menacing Nimbus a playable card in my opinion. If there's an Elemental Shaman deck in the new meta, I expect Menacing Nimbus to be a valuable curve-filler in it.
       

       
      It's hard to say whether the most exciting part of today's post was the new card, or the amount of backstory, hidden clues, and new art which was provided for The Boomsday Project. I'm sure that someone smarter than myself can decode today's post to discover a number of things about the upcoming expansion.

      This Mage Legendary card was revealed in collaboration with Wronchi!
      If you remember from the expansion announcement video, Hearthstone's developers were sucked into Netherstorm and it's up to Levi the intern to rescue them! As he ventures into Boom Labs, he encounters Stargazer Luna.
      The video was made by Wronchi Animations, who have created many beloved and hilarious Hearthstone cartoons. There's probably going to be a second part, so expect more card reveals!
      Now, let's talk about the card itself.

      With a Netherstorm expansion, one would expect that the magnificent Kael'thas would have been the Mage Legendary. Instead, we get Stargazer Luna which is a very interesting card with a decent statline. She can complement perfectly Aggro/Burn Mage, but you could perhaps find her in Minion-based Mage decks: mostly Murloc Mage, but maybe Elemental Mage as well. She has potentially better tempo than Aluneth, but is more risky. You obviously don't want to play her on turn 3. Let the topdeck wars begin!
      The reveal schedule is unclear at the moment, but it should go as with previous expansions: an initial reveal livestream on July 23, followed by roughly two weeks of card reveals by community sites and personalities, then a final stream before The Boomsday Project releases on August 7.

      New features include Legendary spells, the Magnetic keyword, Omega cards and Project spells.
      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.
