Rastakhan's Rumble Card Spoilers & Expansion Guide

Prepare to be trolled by Hearthstone's 10th Expansion, Rastakhan's Rumble. It released on December 4th 2018 - Patch Notes


Expansion Overview

This expansion takes us to King Rastakhan's Arena in Stranglethorn for a good old-fashioned bout of gladiatorial combat. Amongst the typical 135 cards, you can expect to see:

  • New Legendaries - Champions will represent their team and battle for their Loa. They will also appear in the Rumble Run as opponents.
  • Legendary Loa - Each class has a patron Loa to which it has pledged itself, and they appear to us in the form of Legendary minions.
  • Stealthy Spirits - Each class has a new 'Spirit' minion that works with the Loa. These are 0-Attack minions with temporary Stealth.
  • New Keyword - Overkill will trigger an effect if more damage was done than the target had health.
  • New Single Player Mode - In Rumble Run you choose a Shrine and build your deck around it's unique effects. Completing a run will unlock a special card back.
