I think this is a cool mechanic, at the very least. And on 10 mana you can play this with an empty deck and then play your last C'thun card, so you're guaranteed to draw C'thun next turn and have 6 minions to use for trading. (unless you end up with no space to play C'thun...)
Hmm, this is why I tend to leave deck building to those who understand it!
Yep, this doesn't work, as I haven't got achievements for some older adventures - such as One Night and Blackrock - because I disenchanted some of the cards
Sometimes they bundle the reveals around a particular theme - and then after that they release the rest of the cards with that new tag. Perhaps there will be a longer reveal with a few of the frenzy cards demonstrated together? But this is a crazy short reveal period (which I personally quite like!) so all bets are off
I know Blizzard staff have been working from home for nearly a year now, but I'm impressed at how much they've been able to keep up the pace of releases and updates. I'm a bit concerned that a change of this size is going to introduce a lot of bugs - and given that they've delayed now it seems that's on their minds, too. I hope the people running this aren't under too great a pressure/crunch at this point.But even if there are problems, the Hearthstone team have become so much more responsive to fixing things quickly, putting out patches and communicating with the community, that you know things will be fixed - even if not immediately - and that's a big plus compared with the old days.
There is no cow hero.
I doubt we will see the Explorers return just yet. Their cards are only just about to rotate out of Standard, and even with new versions it would feel a bit stale to have them straight back in again. I can imagine - if Hearthstone is still around in 2 or 3 years - that they will make a return in then.
Guardian Animals - The guidelines specifically state: "Students may also bring an ironbeak owl OR an alleycat OR a toad." They never said how big.
Nice Harry Potter reference - I wonder if there are more?
I think a 'Treant Totem' is a new thing in itself - and therefore counts either towards Treant rewards or Totem rewards. Summoning 4 totems is pretty good for Shaman - lots of ways to buff them now.
Only issue with Trump's deck is that you need a whole day to play one game, judging by his recent streams!
I'm not sure how useful this will be, but the idea of generating a permanently stealthed minion is very cool!
My favorite moment of 2019 was the announcement that there was going to be a linking theme through the whole year. Previous expansions, like Mean Streets, always felt like they lacked the whole story they could have told. 2019 has been full of story and made the most of all the opportunities presented by the cards, adventures and in-between elements.
In 2020 I'm most looking forward to some dramatic change coming to hearthstone - it's felt like 2019 was a real celebration of the game, but I can't see exactly where it goes from here; so maybe a 'cataclysm' style change to come?
Just to point out that he will expire come the next rotation of cards in the spring. As he's very popular Blizzard might move him to standard permananlty, or they may just print a replacement.
Had this one this morning, it was a lot of fun!
Well done, all. It's been fun reading the comments and voting on cards.
I guess it's important they try and be consistent with this, as there is the evolve lackey in the pool for another year at least; plus, all the wild stuff.
Agreeing with those who think this might be nerfed - perhaps to be (gain +4 attack this turn?)
A noble spirit embiggens the smallest minion.
Looks pretty good for a kind of mid-range Hunter deck. Is there anything that can boost weapon attack damage in standard? Even if not, for value (and damage) over time, this seems pretty solid in any deck carrying dragons.
Interesting card - like some others in the set it fills in some spaces between and around existing cards (like Doomsayer). A decent tech option/control option.
