    It seems alright for a slower Warlock deck, especially because it can tutor a bunch of the strong Fel spells like [Hearthstone Card (Dark Portal[Hearthstone Card (, Felosophy (if you're playing big demons), Demonic Assault or Unstable Felbolt, while also dealing 3 to all enemies. 

    It's extremely niche, and I feel like that's been a theme for this expansion. All the cards look cool, but they're just so all over the place that there's no real cohesion between anything.

    Very interesting you mention Fel DH because this is a Warlock card

    If [Hearthstone Card (Ziliax) Not Found] has taught us anything, a card doesn't have to be flashy to be pretty good.

    And this seems pretty good. Not outstanding, but the weapon is great and the hero power is above average.

    You're not playing this in Quest Mage. That deck plays too many cards with targets, and if you play this then you're relying on those randomly cast spells hitting good targets. 

    You play this in a deck with very specific spells that don't have targets like Grand Finale or Counterspell.

    Elemental Mage was fantastic in KotFT, but I assume when you say Elemental Mage you mean something like Elemental Shaman.

    The cards that have been revealed are really all over the place. They are each interesting in their own way and they all look really solid, but they provide support for decks that don't exist yet.

    This is further support towards the theory that Blizzard uses BGs to test mechanics before they're put into proper cards.

    Quest Warrior, Deathrattle DH, Face Hunter, Quest Rogue, Aggro Druid, Libram Paladin, Secret Paladin, Libram and Secret Paladin, Shadow Priest, Zoolock and Elemental Shaman just don't exist then, I suppose?

    Keep in mind there's going to be a core set rotation next year; there's a decent chance Freeze Shaman synergy rotates back into standard from KotFT.

    I feel quite let down that what appears to be Hearthstone's first pirate-themed expansion doesn't have that many pirates.

    They could just be there because that's the environment of the set, like how K&C had a bunch of Kobolds but no Kobold synergy, but I would have liked some Pirate Rogue action.

    The meta does feel relatively well balanced, just that people are really frustrated with the number of Mages and Druids (60% of my matches are against Mage).

    Why are you so enraged at something that's completely optional? You and nobody else has any obligation to complete these puzzles, you are free to play constructed or battlegrounds or whatever you enjoy. And besides, these types of puzzles are not designed for an individual to complete, although it's entirely possible (Trump completed the Barrens puzzles on his own).

    I feel like saying making cards after developers to acknowledge their work a narcissistic practice is like saying putting your name in a movie's credits is also narcissistic.

    From watching his stream, it looks like Thijs will be revealing his card in about two hours from now. Like you said, hopefully this doesn't attract an angry mob of people to Thijs' channel.

    Interesting how they're taking this deathrattle archetype recently. Before it was all about getting a whole bunch of generally big minions, but now it feels like it's all about getting smallish midrange minions and using their stickiness to gain tempo. Not sure which style will be more successful.

    I understand that legendaries don't need to have flashy effects all the time (e.g. Aya Blackpaw, Infiltrator Lilian, and our lord and saviour Zilliax), but for a character as influential as Anetheron who led the Scourge in the Battle of Mount Hyjal, it's pretty underwhelming. The effect can potentially be very strong based on how quickly a Warlock can fill their hand, but it really feels like a Mountain Giant substitute for Standard. 

    My guess as to what happened during development was this was an epic or something, but they weren't able to balance it properly while allowing two copies of it to be run in a Warlock deck, so they made it legendary and slapped some canonically significant Nathrezim as a name.

    And yes, Hearthstone doesn't have to be an accurate representation of WoW's universe (which is actually what makes the game's storytelling element more interesting in my opinion), but this card could literally have been any important bad guy. It completely fails to reflect his influence and his abilities in WoW.

    I like to imagine the token generated by Jace, Mirror Mage is actually Jace Darkweaver but he's so good at illusions that you can't tell.
