Does this reveal just further prove how disconnected from their game they are? Most of this is slow shit that won't see play because of aggro cancer...
Eh, the +10/+10 is win more but the field full of 3/3s is actually quite powerful coming from a single card
10 split damage is fucking retarded considering Avenging Wrath does nearly the same for half the mana.
The 4 mana 7/7 seems like a card made to punish playing a minion on curve every turn. What's that, the curve decks can and will also play it now to further speed up their decks? WHAT A FUCKING TWIST! Fuck blizz

Misread the fucking card nvm I'm retarded
Try it out first. We said the same things about Totem Golem/Tuskarr Totemic/Thunder Bluff Valiant and look how Shaman turned out after TGT
sad thing this is more or less balanced since its 2 mana body +1 mana body for 3
meanwhile shredder is 3+2 for 4
Knife juggler still not touched
Mad scientist unadressed
Dr boom is still the only viable 7 drop
How many expansions those garbage cards are goign to pollute the meta
Look at it this way
turn 4 you get to bait out the owl and turn 5 you play belcher and if you are about to be hit with the 15 damage mage combo or a possible pyroblast you drop it and flip the other mage the middle finger.
It's never over
>inb4 his son starts streaming on twitch
Honestly, they are making the game skilled now. I mean it is going to take a lot of thought about Discover... what are you going to choose and everything having an RNG element is going to make lots of different situations.
Yeah inb4 everyone laughs at me but I think it might be a form of skill.
>LITERALLY the reverse stats of flame juggler
What the fucking fuck?
Also why does blizzard apparently have no idea how to stat minions in general? I mean, they come up with some interesting effects but the stats are always fucking retarded, what gives?
Respond to this post with stats that would make new cards good but not completely fucking broken. Like, not mysterio but would still be actually played on ladder by just changing the mana cost/attack/health.

Rogue and warrior don't give a shit about the front end of shredder, odds on having a weapon prepper to murder it is super high. But you are gonna post that meme for every 4 health minion ever so fuck it.
Its a little like Twilight Whelp, you need to make an Overload Shaman for it to be good but then it could be surprisingly okay (Dragon Priest eventually pooped out, OL Shaman probably will turn out to be too inconsistent to win)
Reynad is such an asshole. I mean server first is legitimately possible but world first is usually some jerks from Europe or Asia, no way did Kripp do a world first raid boss.
Yeah nice cards guys but I do hope that someone will ask them tomorrow if they will do something about the millions of shitty unplayed cards, some of them being from the latest expansion a fucking month ago, that Hearthstone has right now.
fucking kek everyone wearing the horribly sized blazers.
you just know nobody wants to wear that shit, but the event coodinator forced everyone to wear them so that this casual RNG shitfest appears "professional"
>TGT cards are such unplayable shit they have to make a special challenge stone to even have them seen at Blizzcon at all
>thinking it's a meme
He ran a tournament with open qualifiers and when his friends and teammates failed to qualify he let them advance anyway.
Looks even worse that they're wearing hearthstone shirts underneath them. Either go full out with suits like they do for other tournaments or just let them wear what they want.
>That 3/4 taunt beast an unambiguously better spider tank?
Different creature type, plus it's a class card. In Patrick Chapin's words, it's not strictly better, it's strictly different.
The reason the 3/4 monkey exists is to make Warrior better at arena. It's a really good card there, but won't change much by itself because Warrior has a million terrible cards that outweigh it.
This expansion looks like BRM all over again.
Aside from 3 class cards and maybe 1 legend most of this shit will disappear from ladder within 2 weeks after final wing releases
What kind of curse do you want faam?
Truth is the best part about Hearthstone is the deckbuilding. Deckbuilding with goofy rules is interesting. Actual Hearthstone is just people playing the same decks people have been playing for two years, oh boy Handlock, oh boy Force Roar Druid, oh boy how fun
This entire Blizzcon should have been Challengestone with two different rounds top 8 and top 4 with really difficult challenges.
Watching so-called pros RNG their way to 100k is really lame but actually challenging their minds would be truly interesting.
I'd only like finals to be typical Hearthstone crap just so people don't call them rigged or something.
>12 year olds who play hearthstone regularly

>Amaz and Kibler laughing, clapping, enjoying the game
>every other match in this godforsaken tournament is full of people looking bored
Hearthstone has so much potential. Why does it have to suck so much?
I think the actual best thing Blizz could do to the meta with a simple nerf/buff would be nerfing Shredder. But the way they do things, they'd make it a 2/1 that summons an angry chicken.
This card's insane right? you could either upgrade a 1/1 or fuck up one of your opponents big guys
Yes. In the vanilla test it beats yeti, OR anything higher, deathrattles aside. It's almost always extreme value, especially if it hits something like a giant or dragon.
It could buff your dudes as a pseudo-houndmaster.
It's ridiculous, but it's still not playable in secret pally/aggro druid/ face hunter meta.
is this a adventure with wings or new card packs?
I think I did good, guys. 4-3 arena run OP.
← the only decent/semidecent cards from the new adventure
Every time they announce an adventure I start saving gold and by the time its actually released, I have enough gold for the entire thing.
Are they announcing this adventure just a week before its release specifically to fuck over the people that do this sort of thing?
I only thought about this when I seriously started to consider just buying the thing
Are blizzard really this fucking manipulative and greedy?

Just because they aren't shredder tier doesn't mean they aren't great. Plus rogue might actually be relevant again almost entirely thanks to unearthed raptor actually making Blizzard's attempts at nerubian rogue working.

>Sir Finley Mrrgglton
>Keeper of Uldamam
>Naga Sea Witch
Back in early GvG times I made a priest deck with a ton of negative death rattles and Wailing Soul.
The deck was fun, but not quite powerful or consistent enough to really climb ladder with it
I think that it may be time to revisit that idea.
PALADINS GET OUT
>Worst case its just a 1 mana (semi) cycle
>Unstable portal for druid with the option to choose a spell
Why is no one talking about this? It might have trouble fitting into some decks, but it seems really good in an aggro druid or something
>priest 2 drop that doesn't contest most played 2 drops
>another 6(six) mana priest spell
>2 4 drops killed by weapons of the two most played classes and shredder
I really only like raptor there for meme beast druids but it doesn't have the utility of a shade
Basically. There is no other reason.
And it's another expansion that will be full of shit cards but have a few mandatory must-haves so spending gold will feel even worse.
And you can bet your ass this time they won't make the same mistake they did with BRM and the good cards will be hidden in the third and fourth wing.
Because Unstable Portal grants a discount, it lets you "bank mana"; that's why it's so great. The Raven Idol only gives you stuff you could have put into the deck in the first place since Discovery only gives you stuff that is neutral or from your class. And it gives no discount.
So you are literally just paying 1 extra mana for whatever you get. And you're getting something you could have just put in the deck. And it's random.
Nerubian rogue is just using every spider themed card that isn't weblord or maexxna
so Egg, creeper, beneath the grounds, anub, ambusher. It doesn't quite have enough to work right now but with a few more synergy card it'll be a thing where you just spam cheap sticky minions and 4/4's
If they were going the super greedy route they'd have announced a preorder cardback like they did with BRM and no free wing
I read somewhere that they're releasing two free cards instead of a free wing this time around but they're both shit
yeah the jokes on us.
Personally, i'm going to wait even though i have the gold.
Honestly the people that were blindsided by this might be better off.
Almost all of these cards still lose to current meta. Sure you miss out on some experimenting, but hey, go watch your favorite streamer, they'll go through the process better than the average player would.

New Cards are all shit, guess its time to PLAY /DOKI DOKI/
in an aggro world, it's terrible
in a control world, it's still not that great. i mean even against control warrior or something, they don't run many (if any) deathrattle high cost cards. so shadow word death is pretty much better in every single scenario. i could only see it being useful against tirion, and a card being viable against a single minion isn't very good
It's interesting if the game ever went into a fatigue level of control decks like old control pally/priest/warrior
outside of that the scope really isn't there because of its mana cost
Its a 3/2 instead of a 2/3, meaning it has a better chance of trading with other 3 drops and it can trade with shredder and 1 drops on average are better than a vanilla 2/1. Its a stronger harvest golem that is for sure.
it'd literally be worth it just for silence + assassinate. the steal is a fucking bonus.
it's real fucking easy. dragon priest counters aggro. this card counters control. you put both together and gee it works pretty well huh
This game is like Russian dolls now, half the shit that dies has something else inside it
It's funny that cockatrice exists, has hundreds of active users on a completely free server automatically provided by woogerworks (the creators) and gives you everything including card images for free (although you still have to know the rules of course, like playing MTG in real life).
well, in ysera's case, shrinkmeister + cabal is was better. yes it's two cards but cabal is really solid alone and shrinkmeister enhances her, and are really solid picks in most control priest decks. i don't think any deck that runs those two would run entomb, and don't really think running entomb instead of shrinkmeister is any viable
it's an okay card (in a control-specific world) but it doesn't really beat out current options
>yfw "Stranglethorn Jungle" in the new expansion means we'll never get a full Zuul'Grub adventure
>accuses person of namedropping
>when they specifically went to lengths to avoid name dropping in any way
>no actual response to the question itself
<insert 3 appropriate japanese words here>
Druids lack good three drops though and the ramp plan in aggro druid isn't consistent enough to only be running two minions that cost 3 mana. Its more debatable whether midrange wants this or not; although it could help make their early game more consistent.
Not to say it's a worse golem since it's a druid and thanks to beast synergy (wildwalker and fang) but on average 1 drops aren't better than a 2/1
counting a 1/1 or 1/2 as worse and a 2/1 on par (non-vanilla better obviously) you get 17 of 42 better than a vanilla 2/1
God I hate this, you don't want new removal to be better than existing removal unless existing removal is sub par (druid removal), Entomb is on par with existing priest removal so it's worth using as a work around for death rattles.
Honestly it feels like the cards were balanced, then they added +1 mana cost to every card.
They were afraid of ramping up the game speed once again, so instead we get 3/2's for 3 mana 4/4's for 5
Seriously, go back and look at all the revealed cards, they all look fine when you subtract 1 mana cost, but become iffy and situational the current way they are.
Yeah, more garbage 2-drops and overcosted steal gimmick spells are exactly what Priest needed. Entomb is great though.
Shrinkmeister+Cabal is shit, one of priest's biggest problems is that people think it's okay for a class that sucks at drawing to rely on combos for everything.
Entomb does nearly the same thing as both cards, can remove Sylvanas, AND makes your deck bigger. All for two less mana and one less card. It's much much better than either, especially when you take into account that running 2 Entomb lets you take replace the two extra combo pieces with cards that are actually good.
So far the cards don't seem to be that impressive. There are some crazy plays you can make in an ideal world, but these cards so far will just be dead draws against a really aggressive deck.
cards are alright, lots of basic good minions like 3/4 for 3 and nothing super broken
adventure itself seems great, finally bosses that are not just 'play this exact deck and get perfect draws/abuse the ai or lose'
>turn 10, this guy and Dr Boom
If its like Naxx I'll be happy. Naxx was great.
These cards all just seem very strange honestly. I don't think its gonna shake up much. Blizzard has nerfed control/combo decks too much so every game is more or less zoo v zoo now and I hate it and this doesn't look like its going to change that.
>This game is like Russian dolls now, half the shit that dies has something else inside it
This, by the way, is what made Yu-Gi-Oh unplayable in the end: almost everything puts more shit on the table when it dies.
Sasuga Blizzard for concentrating fifteen years of cancer into less than one year.
>savjz acting respectful and sincere when winning, mindful of the bout being friendly and fun
>upset in a previous tournament which he literally won by being 1 rank ahead of forsen, but lost due to a technicality that ultimately forced him to fight out the literal worst possible matchup for demonlock: face hunter, literally no single worse matchup than face hunter, the #1 worst matchup of savjz's deck, even though after the ranks updated he was ahead of forsen
>still ultimately played out that matchup despite being fucked on a technicality, and even managed to win one game of a Bo3 of the worst possible matchup of all matchups
>all of this includes the very last matchup of forsen who everyone watched LITERALLY have a fan who had lethal outright wintrade with him in the most unsportsmanlike manner physically possible
Yeah, very funny indeed. Remember to finish your homework before Monday Mr. 12-year-old, your education is important!
first wing cards seem to be shit, at least i have time to get gold for second wing, which has the shaman trogg and the spider that discovers beasts.
third wing is literally murlocs, will get that as well probably
Several months after a card has shown to make tournaments have less views
Never. They have no incentive to buff cards when they can just release them as just new cards instead.
>the very last matchup of forsen who everyone watched LITERALLY have a fan who had lethal outright wintrade with him in the most unsportsmanlike manner physically possible
>implying it matters if it's the last matchup or not
he didn't actually cry, it's just "F O R S E N B O Y S" 12 year olds who are meme'ing it up. Savjz was a rank ahead on the legend ladder after they were equal ranks (after it updated), but they still forced savjz to play against his worst possible matchup which forsen was playing.
it's like if you won a tournament as freeze mage but then they said no you didn't, you have to win a Bo3 against control warrior first, with justicar. you'd probably be pissed, right?
How is it fucking stupid? It's a somewhat expensive early game removal that also gives you a cheap later removal. It's a decent card with decent design IMO.
Not all decks will run it (it might be too slow for competitive, even), and you have to consider it's going to impact your draws, but a 3 mana fireball will be useful quite a lot of the time. The issue if 3 for 3 damage is going to be valuable enough to include in the first place.
even despite the bullshit, savjz was LITERALLY, L I T E R A L L Y the winner with being a rank ahead after the update.
savjz was robbed, plain and simple. you cannot dispute this. i have photographic proof, anyone who talks shit is a 12 year old, so go ahead and prove you're in middle school faggot.
