In a tweet this afternoon, Blizzard has posted a short video alongside a hashtag that was used as a Scholomance Expansion teaser.
What does this mean? Are next week's patch notes going to have anything really interesting? This could just be some new marketing campaign Blizzard is using for Hearthstone, but the timing feels weird. We know that we are supposed to be getting a new gamemode before the third set of the year comes out, so are we finally there?

Bringer of life, hope, and epic comebacks. Which dragon are you packing to #MasterTheUnexpected?
So Randamonium in Manastorm will be new mode? :D
"I hope for luck" and "Master the Unexpected"? Boys, it sounds like the created-by meta isn't going anywhere.
Means most likely nothing. There was one such teaser in August 14th but with Necromancy
I do not know how to embed a video/
Video embed does not work for twitter as far as i know, unfortunately, the url isnt actually url to the video source, but rather to the tweet.
Could be some type of booster draft format with potentially guaranteed tribal stuff?
Maybe they already said it's constructed?
It probably won't be constructed, because they said few times and mentioned Arena.
"a lot of that Arena-style gameplay we know and love is going to be present in our new game mode for Phase Two.";
And earlier (in April ?) Ben Lee said, new gamemode will be "similar in scale and scope to Arena" (I don't have link, you can search for it).
New Constructed game mode.
Every card in your deck must be a Dragon.
"i hope for luck!", not the best way to catch my attention tbh
Singleton mode or commander?
I just like that it's the same Alexstrasza model from the Dragons of the Nexus cinematic.
If you pause the video to see the card text, you can see it has the updated text of Dragonqueen Alexstrasza
I always pack a nerfed card.
Well if I get to always pack a dragon it will be either Faerie Dragon or Dragonqueen Alexstrasza or Malygos depending on type of my deck (and I suppose a few class dragons are fine too),
personally I'm a big fan of Cobalt Spellkin. I threw that gal in every deck I could when DOD launched
This gotta be good. Give the streamers some content to put out there man. Bring the people back in or this game is doomed soon.
I look forward towards the new game mode. On the basis of "Which dragon are you packing to #MasterTheUnexpected?", I presume we will have a choice, so it can be something like Magic's Commanders?
I'm really hoping for HS commander, but if it's singleton like the MTG version, then the No Duplicate cards will break it. So I doubt we're having a singleton format, but I still want commanders.
EDH is the only fun I have in MTG outside of screwing around with friends. I'd be so hyped if we got a similar format in Hearthstone.
How does EDH work?
