     I'm back again, and I greet you! Oof, it's been a while since I posted something here, but that is for a veeeeeery good reason, I'm working on a custom Hearthstone year, the Year of the Wolf! Three expansions with mini-sets and lots of extra content, and they're taking a good chunk of my time (since I'm working alone on this), but enough about teases, let's get to the first expansion of the Year of the Wolf, and now I present to you my second full custom expansion: Rock in Azeroth!!!

    Set Introduction

    Rock in Azeroth is a 135 cards expansion + a 38 cards miniset with lots of references to the Heavy Metal universe in the Heartstone installment. Differently of what the name suggests, the expansion focus entirely on Heavy Metal and its Sub-Genres, which is tied to the classes of the game (but not completly), so if you got fooled and was expecting classic rock here, sorry to disapoint you, but as the philosofer Detonator once said, "Metal is the law, the law is the metal, metal the law is" (Also, a tip for people who likes making logos for their expansions: Finish the expansions BEFORE making the logo, you might change some ideas aloung the way, like I did.)

    Keywords and Mechanics

    There's two new keywords and a new mechanic this time




    • Solo -  Does something at the end of your turn if you control no other minions
    • Band Members - 2-Cost minions with a combination of standard keywords who are generated from other cards, similar to Lackeys, except they are not random and stupid game changers, see them below.
    • Stages - Spells that cast their effects at the start of your next (X) turns, also, we have a Legendary neutral spell in the form of a Stage in the mini-set. Note: They were made before Sigils.




    Full Set and Miniset + Class mechanics and Themes Guide

    Here's the full set with a small text to guide you through the expansion, and for the first time ever, no typos, no wrong formatting, no lack of watermark, no bullshit, just refined content ahead. The show is about to start, get ready to rock! (If you just want to see the cards though, click here)

    Demon Hunter

    Let's start the show with one of the most famous and loved Metal sub-genre, Thrash Metal, which is represented by Demon Hunters here, aggressive, fast and heavy, very fitting for the class. Mus'taine, the Demon Hunter legendary got reject buy his former band members, now he must gather new members to show that his better then them. On the other side of the stage, rumors says that James Heatfiend is influciencing his young audience to make sacrifices and summon demons, is the rumors true? Watch the show and find out!

    Show Spoiler




    Next "band " on the line is Druid, with the most modern and popular genre nowadays, New Metal, or Nu Metal for the intimates. Heavy and slighlly melodic, and this will be represented by cards like Drai'man, who will eventually pack a punch on your ears with his music, and also Malakian, who'll show the crazy side of the show.

    Show Spoiler




    The good old Heavy Metal, who came before all the labels, represented by Hunters, who are just as aggresive and straight forward as the class. Ozzywix, Rustwix brother's, is leading the show now, but a random person throwed a bat at the stage and he ate it! Help him to vomit the bat away before its too late. On the other stage, Eddie the Beast is turning fallen beasts into zombeasts, are they real or just animatronics? See below

    Show Spoiler



    Mage's is going for a more progressive vibewith their Progressive Metal, playing long songs which avoid repeting the melody by not playing the same cards over and over, and eventually play a powerful riff who'll wipe all enemies from the stage, and Paul Me'under is keeping the song on with his amazing guitar skills.

    Show Spoiler




    Power Metal! My favorite music style who will be portraited by paladins, with fast and melodic songs about heroes and dragons, and speaking of Dragons, Hermangonos arived at the stage to show the force of the Dragons, while Kai'han's band will show you the real power of metal.

    Show Spoiler



    And here we have Priest, hanging in the balance between Light and Darkness, with their dark and yet beautiful Symphonic Metal. The beautiful and epic side will be represented by the Nigth Priestess Tarja, while the dark and mysterious side will be portraited by Therionna, the shadow dragon who created the genre and are more than whiling to play it for you.

    Show Spoiler



    No time to writte, Rogues are playing their Speed Metal too fast here, Yngwie is playing some unbelivible fast solos, while Stump is leading the audince to Headbang in the music's rhythm and...Oh! I guess someone broke their neck...anyway, the show must continue!

    Show Spoiler



    The next one on the line is Shaman, playing their Folk Metal with two completly different flavours. First we have the god of the north Týr (not to be mistaken by the Titanic Keeper) bringing the cold winds of the north to the stage. And then we have Captain Morgan, who's making everyone on the audience drunk with his Storm of Ale.

    Show Spoiler




    Here we have Black Metal, dark, obscure and menacing, like the average Warlock, my favorite class mixed with my least favorite genre period, what will come out of the combination of them? Let's find out. The stage has turned dark, a mist is slowlly growing, them Virg arived and killed one of his band members! Well, no way this is real, it must be just part of the show...wait, now demons started to appear on the stage and...OMG! Look at the size of that demon! It's Abbath, the immortal, someone get ride of him before he destroys the stage, or THE WORLD!

    Show Spoiler



    And to end the show with style we have Warrior and Death Metal, super heavy and aggresive, and do you know what rhimes with Death Metal? Deathrattle! Either flavourly and how they sound. Chuck is trying to kill his enemies by playing the most aggresive riffs as possible, and the final presentation will be lead by Alissa, who'll show how heavy her music is in the most painful way.

    As a fellow metalhead I can only congratulate you for this awesome expansion. The amount of detail you have put into these cards is crazy, the art is super flavorful and streamlined, the additional stuff at the end super cool (pack opener!). I'd gladly preorder just for the flavor!

    There are some typos left and quite a few cards that look scary at first glance, but I will try to find the time to give you detailed feedback on these points. Great work!

    I notice I am confused. Something I believe isn't true. How do I know what I think I know?

    WOW :D Thank you for creating this and sharing with us, it was a real pleasure to read it all and analyze your ideas! I used to listen to rock / metal a lot, so many of your cards brought back some nostalgia. Flavour-wise this is probably the best custom expansion I have ever seen! 

    I am looking forward to your next expansion and am really curios to see how you have your whole year planned. 

    The overall power level is very high, but the set is so cool, that I do not want to go into details of that. (also if everything is broken - nothing is broken, right?)

    One suggestion only - I would remove Twinspell from Geezer's options because it was spell-only effect originally and having it on the minion hurts my sense of integrity. On the other hand I would add Adapt. Is there any particular reason why the latter is missing ?

    Glad you've liked it, and I appreciate the comment. Yeah, I see I've missed some typos, it just wouldn't be a expansion of mine without typos rights? I'll fix them later. About power level, yeah, it's pretty high, but that is totally on pourpose. I like high power level,  and on my last expansion (Dawn of the Apocalypse) I felt like I holded its power level too much  and ended unsatisfied, so on this one, I just said "You know what? Fuck it, I'll leave them as they are and nerf later if necessary" ( just like developers are doing on recent expansions,lol). Anyway, thanks again, and keep rockin!

    I mean this is fantastic, if you couldn't tell by my name I'm a fan of a certain rock band, so this expansion really spoke to me. I love all the references to song names or band names (Black Sa'bat being a particular favourite of mine. The power level is dangerously high, and so it should be, we're designers first, balancers second. I love all the extra bits you've included and the art you've made yourself, truly spectacular job you've done here. Well done!

    Thanks everyone for the comments, I'm back on my PC so I'll respond to some of them

    Here's a "funny" curiosity for you: The expansion tease in the spoiler was supposed to be the THIRD expansion of the year of the wolf, the actual second was something like "Fast and Furious" inside Hearthstone. The features would be: New tribe, Vehicles, minions with low attack who would gain bonuses when  played into a Pilot, a keyword of the expansion, also another keyword: Turbo, which was basicly "This deals damage first" and maybe a third keyword named "Tuning", which was similar to Adapt. But sadly, everything got scrapped due to lack of good and fitting art, I might come on it later but it's not garanteed. But don't be dissapointed, the next expansion will be just as exciting!

    Adapt WAS part of the pool! It got removed for two reasons: 1 - The keywords featured in the Band Members are simple, unique, and work on their own. Adapt though, is not a singular keyword like the rest, it's a keyword attached to a Battlecry, so I thought it was a bit desonant from the rest. 2 - Most of the options are already featured in the Band Members and would feel a bit reduntant. But I don't know, I might add Adapt again, it will depend on feedback.

    and I already answered the power level issue to Archorm4n, so I think that's it.

    I really enjoyed your expansion, even if most references flew over my head.

    Spectacular job!
