Why is Spiteful Smith "Above Average" when streetwise investigator is "below average" 

they are the same card stats while Streetwise might be useful, Spiteful will almost assuredly never be for Warlocks (or any other non-weapon class).

Thank you for pointing it out. This issue will be resolved soon.
Also, while it is indeed an issue, warlock can still get weapons from Blingtron 3000Medivh, the Guardian and Lord Jaraxxus (as well as from very random cards, like Upgrade! from Nexus-Champion Saraad), and druid, a non-weapon class as well, can discover a weapon from multi-class discovers (Lotus Agents).

I don't understand why you are justifying this... I said "almost assuredly never" which I stand by as you don't necessarily get a legendary every draft, especially not one of those four legionaries. Yes in cases of extreme RNG you can get a weapon, but encountering a minion with stealth while playing is still much more likely.

I am not justifying it, I was just pointing out that the chance of getting a weapon for a non-weapon class is not that low to be called "almost assuredly never". I also forgot Grand Crusader and Sir Finley Mrrgglton.

Anyway, the issue has been resolved now. Both minions are in tier 5.

Hi, I hate to be one of "those guys", but I really can't find Sacrificial Pact. I know it's probably one of the worst arena cards, but shouldn't it be on here, none-the-less?

Sacrificial Pact is no longer available during draft. You can obtain the card through random effects (such as Spellslinger) only.

Cataclysm is listed as a Tier 2 card, but when I read the Arena portion of the card's page, it states "Cataclysm is a poor card in Arena due to the fact that the recovery from discarding your hand will tend to be too slow." I think you are sending mixed signals concerning this card in arena.

In comparison, Twisting Nether, which is listed as a Tier 6 card, is described as "mediocre" in the Arena portion of the card's explanation. Personally, I agree with the synopses and feel that Cataclysm should be dropped below Twisting Nether in the rankings.

Thanks for pointing this out! I thought it had already been fixed, so I'll remind our authors to fix this issue.

Guest Missing cards

It seems to me, that there are plenty of cards missing?? (the same goes for mage tier, and at least some of the missing cards are overlapping) I use Ctrl+F

Common: Refreshment Vendor

Rare: Azure Drake, Imp-losion, Jeeves

Just to name a few...

Hey, arena tier lists will not be updated for Wildfest. This means that none of the wild cards can be found in the tier lists. Wildfest ends in two days, after which the tier lists should be fully usable again.

Floating Watcher is "Above Average", Kvaldir Raider is "Bad".  Interesting, given that they typically function the same way (Watcher is clearly better of course, but only situationally).

      Hunter's latest additions are two massive creepy-crawlies with powerful effects.
       
       
      Two new Saviors of Uldum cards have been revealed via the PlayHearthstone Instagram story. This time, it's a pair of massive creepy-crawlies for Hunter: Wild Bloodstinger and Scarlet Webweaver.

      Wild Bloodstinger is slightly over-statted as a 6 Mana 6/9, but it will have to do battle with a Minion from your opponent's hand before you get to use those stats. This kind of effect has been seen occasionally before in Hearthstone: Dirty Rat was a much-loved (and much-hated) combo disruption card that denied many a Raza the Chained before they rotated to Wild together. Unseen Saboteur is a similar option in the current Standard card pool, but can be wildly inconsistent.
      Scarlet Webweaver is pretty much a Dreampetal Florist for Beasts. You could play King Krush for 4 Mana and do some big damage. You could also play Tundra Rhino for 0 Mana and do some big damage. The possibilities are endless.
      Taken together, these cards suggest Hunter might be playing with some bigger beasts than usual in Saviors of Uldum. This could be a nice change of pace after six months of messing around with Springpaw and various other 1/1s.

      A new Druid Spell has been revealed on Firebat's Youtube channel - and it looks to have a lot of untapped potential.
       
      Firebat has shared his exclusive Saviors of Uldum card reveal on Youtube: Hidden Oasis!

      The card has huge synergy with the new Druid quest, Untapped Potential, and makes it look potentially very strong - the card can be played on turn 6 with both of its Choose One effects combined every time if you're willing to be patient.

      That's all of today's scheduled card reveals - the next one is slated for Sunday at 6.00 AM BST, although it's always possible that we get some surprise reveals in the interim. See you then!

      The Legendary Quest card for Paladin in Saviors of Uldum has been revealed by Spanish Youtuber Atlas (alongside an adorable 1-drop that will help you complete it).
       
      The Legendary Quest card for Paladin in Saviors of Uldum has been revealed by Spanish Youtuber Atlas (alongside an adorable 1-drop that will help you complete it).
      It's all about playing minions with Reborn, the new expansion keyword. Reborn Minions come back with 1 Health the first time they die, making them especially tough to get rid of (and great to copy with Emperor Wraps, the Quest reward.)
      Alongside Making Mummies we also got Murmy, a new 1 Mana 1/1 Murloc with Reborn.

       
      Seems like Paladin's identity in Saviors of Uldum is beginning to take shape: it's playing a lot of dudes with 1 Health, whether drawing them with Salhet's Pride, generating them with Sandwasp Queen, or resurrecting them with the Reborn keyword.
      Murmy has actually been teased already during a Reddit developer AMA. Asked if there were any cute cards forthcoming in Saviors of Uldum, designer Alec Dawson said:
      Alec Dawson (/u/HS_Alec)
      There are definitely a few in this expansion, especially if you like mummies! So there you have it. Murmy. Cute. In an undead, fish monster sort of way.
      (Also quite probably a terror in Murloc Shaman.)
      Watch the full reveal video below:

      A new Warlock card has been revealed by the Chinese streamer 瓦莉拉 (Valeera). It's the first of 51 Saviors of Uldum cards to be revealed at scheduled times by community figures and content creators.
       
      A new Warlock card has been revealed by the Chinese streamer 瓦莉拉 (Valeera). It's the first of 51 Saviors of Uldum cards to be revealed at scheduled times by community figures and content creators.
      It's a new 2 Mana 2/1 Rare for Warlock. Here's Expired Merchant:

      This kind of targeted discard effect has been seen before on Shriek and Reckless Diretroll - it's a nice way of mitigating the randomness of the discard mechanic. In this case it can be used to duplicate one of your power cards. That could mean an extra copy of Mountain Giant, endless chains of Soulwardens and more.
      Pour one out for the Wild players though - one Bloodreaver Gul'dan was bad enough.

      Introducing Elise the Enlightened, Dinotamer Brann, Reno the Relicologist, and Sir Finley of the Sands.
       
      The Saviors of Uldum have arrived. We knew that we could expect to see new Legendary cards for Reno Jackson, Brann Bronzebeard, Elise Starseeker and Sir Finley Mrrgglton in the new expansion, but not what kind of effects they might have. Thankfully, the wait is over. All four were revealed today following a San Diego Comic-Con panel with Hearthstone game designer Dave Kosak and three League of Explorers voice actors: Terrence Stone (Sir Finley), Amy Walker (Elise Starseeker), and Carlos Larkin (Brann Bronzebeard).
      Introducing:
      Elise the Enlightened

       
      Dinotamer Brann

       
      Reno the Relicologist

       
      Sir Finley of the Sands

       
      These are the first "No Duplicates" synergy cards to be printed since Kazakus and his Kabal colleagues back in the Mean Streats of Gadgetzan in 2016, and are obviously inspired by the very first: Reno Jackson himself. They certainly pack some powerful effects, but will they be worth the deck-building condition? Only time will tell!
