Just a small annoyance, in Timber Wolf's Arena section, Unleash the Hounds doesn't have a link while it does have one everywhere else on the same page.

You gotta love that irony of Freezing Trap being the "go-to" secret for aggressive Hunters when almost every single Face Hunter runs only Explosive Trap because it does 2 damage to face(also sometimes clears the board).

I think you can get Captured Jormungar, Desert Camel, Fierce Monkey, Huge Toad, Jeweled Scarab, King's Elekk, Lost Tallstrider, Mounted Raptor, Mukla's Champion, Pit Snake, Tomb Spider, Armored Warhorse, Core Rager, Jungle Moonkin, King of Beasts, Savage Combatant, Acidmaw, Dreadscale, Gahz'rilla and Malorne along with the beasts already listed in Webspinner's description. Also I'm wondering why a list of every possible card on Webspinner but not on other random spawning cards with a restriction like Piloted Shredder or Tomb Spider.

In the Feign Death's Constructed Play section, you say that Undertaker is a "strong card" to synergize with other Deathrattle cards in the deck. I'm sure this is no longer the case. Also there's a typo as you wrote "synergise".

Maybe it's just me but I think that Ball of Spiders could find its way in the new meta that is a lot more varied than before. Yes we still have Aggro, but also Fatigue Warrior, Mill Druid, that weird Priest that isn't Dragon but has too much removal to be real. I mean, those are REALLY slow decks so Ball of Spiders is less punished for being slow.

It wasn't bad just because the meta was too fast - Hunter was (and still is). Hunters can't really afford to slow down. Midrange Hunters don't run out of cards quickly enough for BoS to be a good addition, especially not with those stats. Face Hunters do run out of cards pretty quickly, but BoS is just too slow to be included.

I don't understand why you'd need to "run out of cards" to wanna play Ball of Spiders... It gives more flexibility, you don't have to make a super aggressive Hunter. You totally can! And the cards to do so are really good, but it's not necessary! I love experimenting, it throws off people and I find it funny!

Hunters have a proactive playstyle and therefore they will almost always have options as long as they have cards in hand. The beasts you can get aren't only good cards, such as Highmane, but laos awful cards such as Stonetusk Boar, Timber Wolf, Core Hound and so on. The value you will probably get will usually be low.

I guess we have to disagree about the possibilities... Just because everyone is doing it doesn't mean it is mandatory. There's a lot of really cool theorycraft decks that are so close to being really good, I believe in Hunter to be able to stalk his prey a little longer than 10 turns!

I'll side with you on this one as I personally like BoS. Depending on the meta I might throw a single copy in from time to time and when I have ran it it has helped more than it hurt. It's not OP in anyway but I do feel its value is a little underrated.

Ram wrangle any King Crushes lately? Great for battle. Terrible for farming. He eats all your livestock.

Gotta love that rng though. Many a concede when you roll that beast out.

Why is Cloaked Huntress missing from the list but the wolf grandma is in the list?

Guides for Karazhan cards are still being worked on. I believe that Kindly Grandmother was added between its reveal and Cloaked Huntress's reveal. It should be added within a few days.

Should I disenchant King crush?

He isn't really viable in this meta and there is no telling if he will be when the "New Year" rolls around. If you need the dust and don't plan on using him then I would say yes.

In the Arena section of Timber Wolf, Snipe, Dart Trap, Lock and Load, Call Pet, Cobra Shot and Starving Buzzard, you might want to take into account that they can't be drafted.

I've been wanting to try and make use of my two Seeping Oozelings for a while now, and have been trying them out a handful of times in a midrange-ish deck with a single Splitting Festeroot. When I play the Oozelings on curve they work really well, but I'm suspecting they'll be inconsistent in the long run.

What do you guys think? The deathrattle is stickier than Savannah Highmane, but lacks Beast synergy. I also run Tracking and a Stitched Tracker in the deck to get to the Oozelings faster, which has worked pretty well so far.

      The Season of Rastakhan has begun and today we have the first round of the Brawl of the Champions.
      As already explained, the Rumble Run is being brought into the Tavern Brawl and you can play one of the special Rumble Run decks against real opponents. Each class has three different Shrines, that promote different playstyles and are accompanied by premade decks that synergise with their respective Shrine.
      Here are the Shrines for this week:
      Druid: Bonds of Balance - At the end of your turn, gain Attack equal to your hero's Attack Hunter: Halazzi's Guise - Whenever you summon a Beast, it gains Rush, Taunt, or Poisonous. Mage: Jan'alai's Flame - Your Hero Power costs (O). Whenever it kills a minion, refresh it. Paladin: Shirvallah's Grace - After you cast a spell on a friendly minion, cast a copy of it on this one. Priest: Bwonsamdi's Tome - After you cast a spell, add a random Priest spell to your hand. Rogue: Bottled Terror - Your other minions have Stealth. Deathrattle: Give your minions +2 Attack. Shaman: Krag'wa's Grace - Your spells cost (2) less. Warlock: Blood Pact - Your spells cost Health instead of Mana. Warrior: Akali's Horn - Your minions have "Overkill: This can attack again". Unsurprisingly, the Shrines that are good in the Rumble Run are also effective versus actual opponents. This bunch of Shrines is quite decent, with the Priest and Mage ones being standouts. The weakest classes for this week are Warlock, Warrior and Hunter.
      The Brawl of the Champions itself, like all Tavern Brawls, rewards a Classic card pack upon victory. However, you can complete the seasonal repeatable quest by playing the Brawl 3 times to earn a Rastakhan's Rumble card pack.

      Joseph Magdalena is here to talk about the Season of Rastakhan event, which will begin on February 13.
      As we already know, this event will start in a couple of days and it will last until March 3. It's all about the Tavern Brawl mode during the three-week Season of Rastakhan as each week you will get a special quest to play 3 Tavern Brawls; the quest will award a Rastakhan's Rumble card pack.
      The Tavern Brawl will be the same each week and it's called the Brawl of Champions. Remember the Rumble Run? Well, now you will get to play against real opponents as one of the heroes of the Rumble Run, along with their special Shrine and complimentary deck. Since each class has 3 different Shrines in the Rumble Run, the Shrines for each class will be different each week and you will be able to swap classes if you choose so.

      Due to Update 13.2 going live a few hours later than intended, the Lunar New Year event will last one more day.
      The event will now finish on February 13 in the US and February 14 in Europe. Therefore, everyone will get an extra quest that awards both Gold and Arcane Dust! Don't forget that the day the Lunar Festival concludes, a new Tavern Brawl-centered event will begin: the Season of Rastakhan.

      Hey everyone!
      Due to the delays we hit yesterday with recent update pushing into the time for the Lunar New Year event, we are going to be extending the end date by a full day. The event will now last until February 13.
      Cheers and thanks again for your patience!

      After a small delay, the latest Hearthstone update is here bringing changes to five cards and the Lunar Festival seasonal event. After the Lunar Festival, there will be a new event, the Season of Rastakhan, with thematic Tavern Brawls and special rewards.
      Some juicy card changes have been implemented with this update. Cold Blood, Flametongue Totem, Hunter's Mark and Emerald Spellstone have had their mana cost increased by 1, while Equality will now cost 4 mana (up from 2).
      With this patch, the Lunar New Year event is now available for a week. Starting from today and until February 12, you can login to get a free Golden Fireworks Tech and enjoy quests that award both Gold and Arcane Dust. The Lunar New Year Bundle is also available in the Shop for $20 or 20 euros; it contains 30 packs in total, 10 from each of the Year of the Raven expansions.
      Right after the Lunar Festival, a new event will start: the Season of Rastakhan will last from February 13 up to March 3. This event is focused on the Tavern Brawl mode, with three different Brawls centered around picking a Rumble Champion and a Loa shrine. Moreover, during that period each Wednesday you will get a special repeatable quest to play 3 Tavern Brawls. The reward for this quest is a Rastakhan's Rumble card pack, so in total you will get three packs.
      Two new card backs have been added: Mark of Hakkar and Kul Tiras (the March 2019 Ranked Play Season card back). There's a dedicated blog post about the Mark of Hakkar card back, which can be acquired if you play against another player who has it. Αnd how do you originally get it? Well, it seems some players have been randomly selected and already have it in their collection and it's their job to spread the madness...
      You can check out the card backs in the patch notes below:

      Card Backs
      Mark of Hakkar Kul Tiras Game Improvements
      Fixed an issue that could cause cards that copy and set minion Health to a specific value to incorrectly activate “while damaged” effects.

Spellbender can no longer attack itself when activated by The Beast Within.
