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.

      Various bosses from The Witchwood's Monster Hunt are ready to battle it out in this week's brand new Tavern Brawl.
      This is the first special Tavern Brawl that we will see during this year's Hallow's End.
      You just queue up and you get assigned a random boss from the Monster Hunt. Some of these bosses include:
      Azalina Soulthief (Hero Power: 2 mana - Summon three 1/1 Wisps) Blood Witch Greta (Passive Hero Power: Spells cost Health instead of Mana) Brushwood Centurion (Hero Power: 3 mana - All minions attack random enemy minions) Chupacabran (Hero Power: 1 mana - Give a friendly minion +1/+1 and Lifesteal) Plaguemaster Rancel (Hero Power: 2 mana - Deal 2 damage to a minion. If it survives, give it Poisonous) Shudderwock (Passive Hero Power - All Battlecries trigger twice) Winslow Tobtock (Hero Power: 2 mana - Each player shuffles their hand into their decks and draws that many cards) Wharrgarbl (Hero Power: 2 mana - Draw 3 Murlocs from your deck) Experiment 3C (Hero Power: 1 mana - Destroy a friendly minion and draw 3 cards) It's not sure how many bosses there are available, but they certainly have similar decks as during the PvE adventure. It might be worth checking our Monster Hunt guide to refresh your memory on some of their abilities or just experience them in action!

      Hallow's End is going to last from October 17 until October 31.
      As we've already discussed, you can log in to enjoy the spooky festivities and receive a free Golden Witch's Cauldron.
      You will also get a free Arena entry ticket in order to test your mettle in the Dual Class Arena. Pick a Hero, choose the Hero Power of a second Hero and try to make the perfect mix with the combined might of both Heroes' class cards.
      We'll have two Tavern Brawls during Hallow's end: Monster Smash (October 17-22) and The Headless Horseman Rides Again (October 24 - 29)!
      Lastly, for a limited time you can purchase the new Paladin hero, Sir Annoy-o, as a Bundle along with 20 Witchwood packs at the price of $19.99 or 19.99 EUR. This mighty new hero even has his own backstory which you can read here.
      Later today, we should also see the balance changes go live.
    • By Zadina
      The update will take effect on October 18.
      Well, the balance changes were smaller than expected as only three cards were affected this time.
      As expected, Giggling Inventor was affected as it now costs 7 mana, up from 5. The team actually considered it too powerful for 6 mana, which raises the question why it was 5 mana in the first place. Anyway, it still remains an odd card if this is still relevant.

      Now, a big and unexpected change was Mana Wyrm being raised to 2 mana. The iconic Classic minion has undergone the Tunnel Trogg treatment and after 4+ years of power, it is ready to retire.

      And a Wild change to alleviate the devastating Druid combo: Aviana will now cost 10 mana. This means she can't be played at the same turn as Kun the Forgotten King and Juicy Psychmelon won't be able to draw both Kun the Forgotten King and Aviana with it.

      The update will go live on October 18th with the weekly reset. What do you guys think about the changes?

      Bosses from various Hearthstone adventure battle it out in this week's Tavern Brawl.
      This is the second time we see Boss Battle Royale 2, which itself is a variation of the original Tavern Brawl. This time, we have a new Druid hero and the Warlock hero Sindragosa has been slightly nerfed.
      You pick a class and then you get a specific boss hero, which has its special hero power and a predetermined deck:
      Druid: King Togwaggle (Magic Candle: 3 mana - Find a Treasure) Hunter: Skelesaurus Hex (Ancient Power: 0 mana - Give each player a random cards. It costs 0) Mage: The Curator (Gallery Protection: Passive - Your Hero has Taunt) Paladin: White King (Castle: 2 mana - Discover a chess piece) Priest: Professor Putricide (Mad Science: Passive - All Secrets cost 0) Shaman: Lady Naz'jar (Pearl of the Tides: At the end of your turn, replace all minions with new ones that cost 1 more) Rogue: Grobbulus (Poison Cloud: 2 mana - Deal 1 damage to all minions. If any die, summon a slime) Warlock: Sindragosa (Ice Claw: 2 mana - Do 2 damage. There will be 2 Blocks of Ice on your opponent's side of the board at the beginning of the game) Warrior: Coren Direbrew (Pile On!: 0 mana - Put a minion from each deck into the battlefield) Sindragosa is pretty powerful. Lady Naz'jar, Coren Direbrew and Skelesaurus Hex have random effects that can benefit your opponent - Lady Naz'jar seem to have more success than the other two. Grobbulus can work too, if you play smartly.
      Good luck!
