    I am very glad they are giving tribes to spells. When you think about it, there really is no reason for only giving minions tribes.

    The thing about only giving minions tribes is that then any tribal deck is kind of forced to be aggro or midrange. But with tribal spells, now we can have more control/combo oriented tribal decks.

      Not to mention some minion tribes could thematically work with specific spell schools. For eg: Team 5 prints a new dragon that synergizes with fire spells, or a demon that buffs fel spells.

    Sunscale Raptor and Razormane Raider have different stats in the video. Which is correct?

      The ones here and also on playhearthstone website. Videos for expansion announcement are shot often before last minute balance changes so such discrepancies happen.

        Thanks for clarifying! Do we know if the Raptor keeps growing (3/4 then 5/5 then 7/6 etc.)?

          I imagine the raptors will continue to grow over time. Otherwise they wouldn't say "Permanent +2/+1".

    Spell schools is exciting. That'll add a layer of complexity and strategy for deck building.

      Really hoping we get Alterac Valley. The snow theme there might be primarily present to make people think we're getting Alterac Valley though, Blizzard could be aiming for a sneak attack there. Though, Darkmoon Faire was also pretty obvious the second we all saw last year's teaser.

      Echoes of Alterac anyone?

        I also thought Alterac for exp3 as I'm thinking it looks a little snowy, and if they are doing a Horde exp and an Alliance exp, and wanting to bring HS back to it's Warcraft roots, the loosely connected third exp makes sense to be in an epic WoW BG.  And none of the original BGs in WoW are more epic than AV.

        For the second exp I am thinking Westfall, and the mini set of 1 and 2 will revolve around classic dungeons in the zones.  Specifically Razorfen Kraul/Downs and then Deadmines.  Not sure what the mini set of AV theme might be other than maybe bringing in some reinforcements to the fight?

    What about the Frenzy keyword? What does that mean?

      OK, I found it: "Frenzy Effects triggered the first time a minion survives damage".

      Spells will get Tribes like Arcane, Holy, Nature, Fire, Demonic, Frost and Shadow if i remember correctly. And there will be cards that will benefit different types of Spell like the Shaman Legendary who give Nature Spells, Spelldamage +3 for example.

       

      For the finding it`s wife i think that the wife gets shuffled in the deck and when you play him you draw a card to try and find it. Not sure about that tough.
