Discover

New with League of Explorers is a keyword that presents you with three choices.

  • The three cards are randomly selected from a specified pool.
  • You can only discover cards that are available in the format.
  • Class cards are weighted more heavily than neutral.
  • You can not discover cards from other classes.
  • These cards are generated and not from either deck.
  • Duplicate options will not be presented.
  • Tri-Class cards can be discovered by all three corresponding classes.
  • If your hand is full, you will not receive the card.
  • Discover appears on both minions and spells.

In total, 9 discover cards were released with this adventure to initialize the mechanic. It was very well received and remains one of the more popular mechanics.


Reno Jackson

Of all the cards in the set this legendary minion was the most defining. This is the first we saw of highlander decks with no duplicate cards.

  • If your deck contains no duplicates, your hero is fully healed.
  • This card is responsible for plenty of salt.
  • Only your deck is checked for duplicated, not your hand.
  • If the effect is active the card will have a yellow border in your hand. This was not implemented at launch, but much later.
  • If you add multiple copies of a card to your deck in some way during the match, this will prevent the effect from triggering.
  • Playing this card with Auchenai Soulpriest or Embrace the Shadow will destroy your own hero.
  • As this is a Battlecry, the effect will not trigger if it is summoned to the board rather than played.

 


Artifacts

Throughout the adventure we come across several treasures of immense value and power. Two collectible legendary minions allow you to Discover such objects to use to your advantage.
