    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?

        It looks like Wintergrasp could be the third expansion. 
        Dean did mention something about testing ‘vehicle cards’ that would replace your hands with buttons. Much like the siege engines in WoW...
        It would be a cool melting pot for a Horde vs Alliance showdown.

        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.

        All tokens are on the official page. It's a 3/10 that immediately attacks the enemy hero.

        https://playhearthstone.com/en-us/cards/63591-mankrik?set=forged-in-the-barrens you can hover on the token's name to see it.

          Tokens are also found on our card pages. Click through to a card page and look under "Related Cards".

            Nice to know! I missed it there! Is there a chance to make it appear as a side card when you write Mankrik?

    Will there be a page like this for the Core Set to track reveals? I know many of the cards will be old cards, but I'd love to see something like this for when they're confirmed/revealed.

      We have an auto-generated page for the new Core Set cards already, but it doesn't contain the existing-yet-confirmed cards for now as we need to figure out how to handle those.

      Yeah, brings back memories. The Mankrik flavor text makes me feel so sorry for him for all of the Horde toons I made over the years.
