    Rest in piece, On the Hunt. You were never a good card anyway.

    Lore note: Well, seems that Blood Knights (Blood Elven Paladins) are not present on this expansion, because every paladin card revealed in this moment are alliance forces of North Point.

    Makes sense. If the next expansion is Lordaeron, they can't have draenei or Wildhammer dwarves (if they want to keep it lore-y like this set seems to be), so the Shaman representatives will have to be orcs or trolls. That balances out

    This make me question their showcased selection to promote the set ... 
    This isn't exactly glamorous - it just shows how far HS has come for base statline since vanilla tho

    They always have something kind of basic in the first reveal. Cult Neophyte was one of the first Scholomance cards they showed off. Also, Ticking Abomination was the only KFT card we knew for a few days.

    Great card from Witchwood

    It's from Rastakhan's Rumble.

    I know, hard believe there actually were good cards in that set.

    I honestly don't remember this card being played all that much.  How'd it make the cute?

     

    For real? It was a staple card in Face Hunter back in Blackrock Mountain.

    Also, it's not about how good the card is, it's about what role it fills. This is a midrange board control or face pressure card to fill the gap Corrosive Breath and Kill Command are leaving.

    Regenerate didn't see a lot of play. There was some Nomi shenanigans decks that used it, but it wasn't a staple and that deck didn't live past Rise of Shadows.

    This is better than Regenerate against an aggro deck though, so maybe there's some hope.

    With Landscaping, it's 3/5 + 2/2 + 2/2 on turn 3 or 4. That is a LOT of pressure.

    No Savage Roar, though. I don't know if Token Druid is going to be consistent enough when they're down a finisher.

    I hope they still give this card the same "wow" factor. I remember the first time I saw someone play Jaraxxus. Watching him hit the board, then rise up and literally crush my opponent while announcing he was my enemy now... that was a big moment.

    They need to give him a new animation on par with that. They really have to capture the idea of summoning a powerful demon that literally kills who you're supposed to be playing against and hijacks the fight.

    Seems like an aggro card. Could be good in decks that cycle through the deck quickly, otherwise the game might be over before you even find Mankrik's Wife.

    Too slow for aggro. I don't think even Zoolock would want to slow down and play a 3/4 just to maybe get a payoff. Maybe it sees play in Midrange, but without Highlander support that seems iffy.

    what is a nature spell?

    Spells will have tribes now, like minions do. Nature is one of those tribes.

    Call it a hunch, but I bet the usefulness of this card relies on the Fel tag. It's so far below the power level otherwise.

    It's too early to actually call this card, since we have no idea what the Spell Schools mean yet.

    Obviously, this is much more of a meme-y strategy, but even for a meme deck this will just be too slow and inconsistent to be played. There are simply too many hoops to jump through.

    On the other hand, Dire Mole with a strict upside. I can't imagine Midrange Hunter not using this card.

    There's also a couple of people wondering why there's a Horde symbol at the end, theorizing that we could get some HordevAlliance stuff.

    Quilboar expansion for the Horde, followed by a gnoll expansion for the Alliance.

    If you don't mind me asking, given that I started playing again today and managed to get to level 14 on the pass so far (mainly through quests and a few random achievements), do you think it is possible to still get to at least lvl 50 before the next expansion (without accounting for any potential events that would make it easier)?

    I think it's possible, but it'll be tight.

    All the levels from 36 - 50 take 5000 XP a piece. That's the bottleneck. The average daily quest is 1000 XP, while every batch of weeklies is exactly 6000 XP. So, you can make about 11,000 XP a week on quests alone. You have maybe nine weeks until the next expansion if it's on the usual schedule. You need about 144,200 XP to make it. If you have the Tavern Pass, you get more XP, so it might be just barely obtainable.

    If the expansion comes out a month early like Darkmoon did, there's literally no way.

    Having bought Darkmoon packs with gold until I was down to 2K, as well as paid another 2000 gold for Darkmoon Races, I'm currently just shy of 10K. Playing normally, I'd usually spend down to 2K and earn to ~8K by the next expansion. And there's still a month and a half left to go this season. I'd say this is a major improvement.

    And I haven't even played every week!

    I'm just here because I like to write short rhymes. Puzzles like this are why I stopped posting in this thread.

    Anyways, Molten Giant. I'm gonna get there eventually.

    Might be a good idea to raise all your hero to lv.60 to get all the golden basic cards, so you can get extra dusts when they rotated out.

    You don't get any dust. You do get 235 cards for free, though

    I wouldn't call it intimidation, but I do acknowledge 1.000 win portraits in some kind of "okay, you're dealing with an expert here, be careful" kind of way. 

    I dunno. I had a 1,000 win Demon Hunter nuke his entire board with a Shardshatter Mystic a few months ago, letting me win the game.

    1,000 wins is just time spent playing, not time spent playing well.
