Icy Veins is looking for a Hearthstone writer! This is a paid position.

With the release of WoD coming up, we have had a lot of work to do on Patch 6.0.2 and we will soon have to start writing guides for raids and garrisons. In the meantime, Poyo is busy with the Diablo 3 content. And after that, we want to start working on Heroes of the Storm. So, the Hearthstone section is not getting the attention it deserves and we feel that it is time to bring an extra person on board to help us with that. This is a paid job.


We are looking for someone to publish new decks on the website every week. We need someone skilled at the game, who can reach Legend rank without too many issues. This is important, because the best way to test decks and write about them is after playing them against the better players in the ladder. We also want that person to write a weekly piece analysing the state of the meta-game.

Having an easily verifiable record for reaching Legend or playing at a high level is definitely a plus, so if you have a stream or a Youtube channel, or if you have played in tournaments, please let it be known to us. Having contributed written articles to other fansites and showing them to us is also important, because we need someone with a good command of English (no need to be a native speaker, Vlad and I are not). The bottom line is that we need to be able to verify claims.

As mentioned in the first paragraph, this is a paid job. We need someone who considers a career playing Hearthstone full-time and writing about it. Remuneration takes the form of shared revenues. With the current earnings of the Hearthstone section, publishing 1 deck a day on the website, in average, can easily end up generating $1,500 a month (and more if the decks are popular).

In order to apply, simply send us an e-mail at contact@icy-veins.com. The content of the e-mail is part of what we will be judging applicants on.

Great opportunity for someone. A job writing about what you love which could provide some invaluable experience if you are wanting to go down that route.

This is wonderful!

Paid positions are difficult to come by.

Now I feel silly for giving up on pursuing Hearthstone professionally.

 

Looking forward to the content!

Nooooooooooo

 

I play too much league and WoW to be able to try for legendary. I get rank 5 or so each month though...... dangit!

 

Good luck and best wishes to the one that gets this. I'm spread too thin.

      Two new cards were revealed by Asian streamers: an Epic neutral minion and the Paladin Spirit.
      The first card was unveiled by Chinese streamer LaLaLa on Douyu.

      The first thought that comes when looking at this card is that it's great support for Quest Hunter. The problem is support cards for this archetype were printed in previous expansions and the result was always the same. Untamed Beastmaster could definitely fit into a Beast deck along with Oondasta - and since they are both Neutral cards, this doesn't necessarily have to be Hunter. Hi'reek, the Warlock Loa, and his copies could benefit from the +2/+2 buff. Untamed Beastmaster could also find its place in a Beast Druid deck with minions like Charged Devilsaur and Tyrantus. These Warlock and Druid combos, though, sound a bit like win-more situations.
      The Paladin Spirit was revealed by Korean streamer (and dancer) Rhdgurwn.

      The text box may not be the final version as "stats equal to its Cost" is a bit vague, since it could mean a 4/4 or a 3/1 or a 1/3 or a 2/2. However, it would make sense that if you cast a 4-mana spell, the Spirit would summon a 4/4 Tiger and that's how we are going to treat it. At 4 mana, this different version of Summoning Stone seems a bit slow and definitely promotes a more Spell Control-oriented playstyle, which is what Paladin seems to be heading to in Rastakhan's Rumble. It definitely makes for a strong combo with Spikeridged Steed.

      It turns out that Dragon Warrior is definitely going to return in Rastakhan's Rumble and the Warrior Legendary Champion is proof of that!
      The card was revealed in the third episode of the Wronchi Animations series of videos for Rastakhan's Rumble (here is Part 1 and Part 2). Krag'wa the Frog is literally swallowing the opponent Annoy-o-trons, when War Master Voone shows up, astounding Garrosh in the audience.
      The video has an older version of the card, since it looks like the team decided that the final version of Voone is actually a 4-mana 4/3:

      The wording is slightly vague, but the copies are added to your hand. As shown in the video, this could work great with The Boomship. However, if you are playing expensive Dragons, I don't see how useful it would be to have more copies of them unless you are absolutely sure that the game is going to last long enough so you can play them all. There's also the problem that currently in Standard there aren't that many powerful Dragons and we've yet to see any new ones in Rastakhan's Rumble. Other than that, War Master Voone and the newly revealed Firetree Witchdoctor can work great in a Dragon Warrior deck and let it be noted that they are both Even cards.

      The Rogue Legendary Loa has just been unveiled!
      The reveal was made by MKRR3 on YouTube. The video is in Polish.

      Gral, the Shark can potentially draw you a minion but it is quite weak to Silence. Still, Rogue has quite a few ways to trigger the Deathrattle and now with Spirit of the Shark, it can trigger the Battlecry twice as well. At first sight, though, it feels like a weak card: Silence destroys it, high mana cost and Rogue traditionally runs quite a few small minions as well. It also doesn't seem to fit with the Pirate theme Rogue will have in Rastakhan's Rumble, altough perhaps we can see Beast Rogue with Oondasta and the recently revealed Untamed Beastmaster.
      What do you people think about this card?

      It seems that Dragons will have a big part in Rastakhan's Rumble as this versatile and cheap Neutral minion can Discover a spell if you are holding a Dragon!
      Hafu revealed this card on YouTube:

      We haven't seen any Dragons revealed so far, but it's safe to assume that they will have some kind of presence in Rastakhan's Rumble. People are already thinking that Dragon Warrior might be a thing, due to the reveal of Smolderthorn Lancer. The Discover component of this card makes it very versatile and probably a staple in Dragon decks to come, since it's undeniable that Dragons will keep being printed in future expansions. The potential is definitely there, but without having seen any other Dragons from the upcoming expansion it's difficult to talk about which classes Firetree Witchdoctor can find a home in.

      As the trend is in latest expansions, we have yet another minion that supports the Healing/Control Paladin archetype.
      The card was revealed by PhenomenGames on YouTube. The video is in Russian.

      (Source: Official Site)
      Paladin gets its own version of Hooked Reaver. It's not clear whether you need to restore Health on your hero or you can just heal any minion for this to work. A lot of cards have been printed in the latest expansions that promote this archetype of Paladin deck (even though Aggro Paladin always ends up winning) and maybe it is its time to shine. Other than that, Zandalari Troll Paladins are soon coming to World of Warcraft and it's good to see them in Hearthstone as well!
