I just want my Abyssal Curses to not proc the Hunter's Quest
Don't really care much for Mantid Queen. Even with 6 other minion types, there will always be a chance you don't roll a divine shield, and you're taking that risk every turn.
The real threat out of this article is that Nightmare Amalgam is returning as a Tier 3 minion. Going to be a menace to BG all over again!
Also, really excited for Eventide Brute. I want to play a dream comp of Captain Flat Tusk, Cap'n Hoggarr, and Eventide Brutes. Just buy pirates, play Blood Gems, and watch the stats soar!
I don't think we're anywhere close to being there yet, but once some of the metaverses (Sandbox, Decentraland, Cronos Metaverse, etc.) get further underway, I'd like to see NFT's being able to be used across multiple IP's, a la Ready Player One.
I'd rather see healthy competition between the different metaverses, like Playstation vs. Xbox vs. Nintendo, as opposed to one dominant entity. Competition drives innovation! The next 10 years are exciting though and I hope something fun and unique can be made from this technology.
So Blademaster Okani is Neutral Counterspell, with a 1- cost 2/6 attached?
I expect Mechs as well, as we are in a submarine of sorts for the "voyage".
Maybe even an entire subset of various crew members.
Something will need to be nerfed here. Lady Prestor will often give multiple Kazakusan. Allowing you to chain this effect multiple times until you win the game.
Just load up Lady Prestor, cheap minions, removal, and draw. Maybe even Lorekeeper Polkelt for consistency.
All cards listed are neutral, and so can be done in any class, with the best being Druid and Warlock for the draw potential.
This deck would rely on getting to Lady Prestor as fast as possible
Probably just a coincidence, but the gem in the center looks like a Red Mana Crystal, a scrapped mechanic from the Gadgetzan expansion for the Kabal. The Kabal are tied to Kazakus who will most likely play a significant role in the miniset.
Interesting interview from 2017 stating they'd like to introduce Red Mana somewhere down the road. This would be the perfect opportunity if they ever do that.
I would like to see the new Heavy Armor Passive Treasure with Quest Priest to set yourself back up to 40.
The Allied mechanic seems alright, interested to see how this will shake up the Duels meta.
Some OP buddies that stand out:
There are others that are also good, but this is going to be a huge shakeup of BGs and I'm really excited!

Spoiled the new Buddy system, and we didn't even know it!
I was looking through these recently and had a couple thoughts.
Congrats on all the site success!
Couple surprises here for me.
Barov being S tier is a surprise. He's good if you know what everyone has and their relative power level, but a whiff can be devastating, compared to some of the "always beneficial" hero powers. Maybe at high MMR the playstyles are more cookie cutter and therefore easier to read.
Ysera only being A tier and not S tier is another shocker. The build it strives for is great and consistent, but maybe that makes playing around it easier, or easier enough to drop it a tier?
To each their own. I understood when I posted that it would be an unpopular opinion. Glad to have more cards to review in any case!
These streamers are painful to watch for card reveals. I understand they're building their streams, but reveal the cards. Talking about the cards is fine, but purposefully dragging this out to get more time with a larger audience is just 'dread'ful.
Ah, you're right! I guess I saw it and just assumed it was a "lasts 3 turns" spell. Will edit!
You're absolutely right! I scrolled through the revealed cards and guess I missed this one. "Giantstalker Tavish" or "Tavish, the Giantstalker"?
So that leaves "Kurtrus, the Demonbane" for the last Hero Card that needs to be revealed.
Marks card reveal had better be a Snow Ogre with good stats or I will personally riot.
Amazing Big Demon card. This is Skull of the Man'ari that only lasts 1 turn, but can't be destroyed. Demon Hunters also have significantly better Big Demons than Warlock.
