    I sure hope there is some type of Chuck Norris Easter Egg to be found in the expansion. It just wouldn't be the same.

    I"m getting the feels about the nostalgia of this set coming out.

    I feel very targeted by this nostalgia marketing. The sheer amount of time I've spent in the barrens both in 2004 and again in classic, as well as being die hard horde...oof dammit Blizzard ya got me (and I'm sure many others).

    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?
