Pretty sure this card is op, broken beyond belief, and also acts just like keleseth, you draw it fast you win, you do not well than you got a deck packed with 1/5 minions and you most likely lose.

It's interesting because it might bring forth so many understated or forgotten minions into the game... many 'understated' minions are taunts so this suddenly makes them OP even.

This card has it's downsides, if you won't draw and play her your plan is busted, but I'm certain you can build a deck around her so it won't suffer that much (I mean you don't necessarily need to add only understated minions). Just think about how many minions will benefit from this: Mogu'shan Warrior, Lightwell, Sleepy Dragon, Ysera, Obsidian Statue to name a few in Standard, and in Wild? Oh boy...

And she has a solid body, she's not such a tempo loss as Mistwalker for instance...

besides saying that pirate rogue girl looks nice, although not powerful, regarding the white lady I think off the bat she goes very well in a slightly modified spitefull priest, which is a 26 minion deck.

My turn!

Blackhowl Gunturret: Are they bulding their way (pun intended) to making a bulding tag?
That said the card is not a legendary. It is a fun idea (mainly because it is a building) and the flavour is so cool. But make it an epic and give me a big baddy instead.

lady in white: HOLY **** .. What a fun card.. I like the flavour and the idea. The fantasy if we have to use World of Warcraft terms.
But is it took expensive? You have to top deck it and coin it out at 5 mana. Not sure about this one. But if it works then it is OP ..

Cursed Castaway: Starfire with a body

Chameleos: The second priest legendary. I like this card. I think it is fun and probably the best itiration of the "this changes in your hand card". I just have to discuss the fantasy about this card. To me this is a trickster card. This card does not belong in priest class. It is more a rogue og warlock card.. This is one of those cards where I do not understand how Team 5 work. Why is this is a part of the priest fantasy?

Duskhaven hunter: When they reveal these Worgen cards could they please reveal the worgen part as well?

Toxmonger: A fun card. A fun idea at least. Probably not playable, but I like the idea for hunter.

Witching hour seems like a good card with Hadronox, Tyrantus and Charged Devilsaur, BUT then u realize that u cannot play spreading plague or malfurion the pestilent, and then u think: what does this card even do?

The witchwood bear in lady in white spiteful deck is 12/X beast with taunt. All there is to say here.

Witchwood Grizzly might be a strong anti-aggro tool, and there are ways to "cheat it out" not to mention using Lady in White on it.

Cathedral Gargoyle - this card yet again makes me wonder how Team 5 card design works. It's basically a conditional Shielded Minibot with added Taunt. The card does not work with Call to Arms, and the benefit itself is not worth building a Dragon deck around it. If it was 2/3 or a 2/4 it might've work, but "if your holding a Dragon" cards were always something that gave a huge benefit, and running them was worthwile. This seems like a joke and it's an Epic!

The gargoyle to me looks like a worse Burnbristle. One could hope that they got a dragon or two for paladin that could push the dragon archetype. Sadly all the paladin dragons are out of rotation and then they only have neutrals.

Weird card to print.

Well maybe we should look in a broader perspective. Maybe they are preparing ground for the coming expansions? And there's the Amalgam, but let's remember it's an Epic so it's not that easy to get. Or maybe we will get a Dragon Legendary for Paladin?

I see Warrior got a nice Weapon to boost the Rush mechanic. They are pushing it all right

Just because they release a pally dragon synergy card, u shouldn't expect much.
When ONiK came out and I saw Menagerie Warden I was like wow, finally beast druid will get it's time to shine, but since then till now when she will rotate out the biggest addon to beast druid was most likely unwillingly the pre nerf corridor creeper.

Well, if there will be no synergy, C-Gargoyle is useless. I would rather run Call to Arms and a few other 1-2 drops. Because Dragon decks are usually slow it's the early game that is always problematic. But yeah nowadays Dragon Pala is not competetive enough either way. I play it from time to time just for fun.

Interesting that Warrior got another board clear, but I wonder why those usually hit your own minions also...

PS: Speaking of Corridor Creeper it's funny how Lady in White can be used as buff for it. Wonder if we'll see it back

Duskfallen Aviana - new druid legendary, I believe it's the worse card of the set; text should be give your opponent 10 extra mana, then u get 10 extra mana if they do not kill her, so dissapointed, druid is my fav class and it only gets meme cards.

I think I'm starting to understand how this works.

At one time they make good, well-thought expansion where they really have solid ideas through and through. They started to plan an expansion way back and there are a lot of good ideas. See Un'Goro or Death Knight in KotFT.

But sometimes they let the people who like to have cheesy "fun and memes" stuff in the game to take control of an expansion (Whalen looks like this kind of guy to me) so they let loose. Ofc there are some good cards in-between but only by "accident" I think. Well, they can always defend themselves that Hearthstone has many players who like to goof around. Personally I would love to play against meme decks, the problem is that I don't meet ANY on ladder and Casual :/ Sure I can play with my friends, the problem is that we usually don't have enough time to play meme decks as we both have only a few moments per day to play the game.

Too bad the "meme" expansion is the one with such a fun theme, a would-be Innistrad.

70 packs is a tempting offer, but I'm not gonna waste real money on this cr@p of an expansion. We've seen almost half of the cards so far and I can already tell where this is going. It's TGT all over again... sure there will be many interesting ideas, some classes will get more OP stuff, and players will find surprising uses for cards that seem bad. But like I said I hate it when I open packs and the only thing I'm thinking is "boy I sure hope I don't get another one of those crappy cards"...

I feel much like you Blob. This seems like one of the lesser exciting expansions so far.

As I keep doing my quests and getting packs as rewards, I keep hoping for packs from previous expansions due them being better or more interesting.

This expansion looked like it tried to refine some of the old mechanics, but it is turning into a mess atm.

Witch Cauldron - I guess we needed this card, but what is with the text on it? Useless! (and it's epic?!)

Aviana - What a lackluster text again.. Not very legendary to me..

They can do better. A lot better. Where are the designers from last year who made two really good expansions and one above average?!

Priest again gets some good stuff, an interesting tool in the form of Holy Water. Maybe it's a bit too expensive, but you can kill and "catch" a useful minion if your not lucky with draws.

And there's a new Hunter Secret that seems far'fetched. Maybe it will be useful, but counting on the opponent to do the job for you to me seems like a bad deal. Always.

Speaking of Epics I see that Team 5 does indeed reserve this card rarity for "unique effects". But in order for players to try a "unique effect" I don't think it's a bright idea to make them into cards that cost 400 dust.

Rat Trap seems really interesting with mukla and hoarding dragon, which is also interesting from the point of view of creating a beast/dragon deck.

Well you mentioned two cards that see a lot of play I don't think this will be played, especially because it's an Epic, but maybe that is it's strength: people won't suspect it. If it gets popular though, it might be an interesting control tool.

Bogshaper - I'm still a sucker for Elementals, and this seems interesting. Stats are abysmal, but then again you can reduce it's cost with Fire Plume Harbringer. We'll see.

Spectral Cutlass - at first it seems bad, but it might work as a substitute for Kingsbane. Less cards required (cause it initially has Lifesteal and this is always problematic). Add Deadly Poison and you have a nice heal. I'm worried about "thief" cards that get rotated out though, Swashbulglar especially.

If i have a rat trap on, on turn 4 i play a 4 mana 5/6 that will dominate the board. If u wanna use the coins to answer my guy, then i also get a 6/6. It is only weak vs agrro pally, but then again every boardcentric deck is weak vs aggro pally. I see potential.

The bog shaper will be good if hagatha is good, if not it's just another cool elemental.
The spectral cutlass is only "outshined" by duskfallen aviana.

Well yeah, I understand your concept and it might work. I think it's rather an anti-hand-vomit tool myself. Problem is that from my expierience giving tempo gain for your opponent always backfires. I think that's why I didn't see Hoarding Dragon even once in play. The card would be great for "mind games" with your opponents but we know how usually 'autopilot' decks ram you to the ground rather then strategize. This would change completly if the "Rat" had Taunt, but I think they would mention this in the cards description so probably not.

watcher83 said:

You think so? Nah it's at least playable.

And regarding DUSTFallen Aviana: Intro clip. I don't know what game they are playing (they confirm this card is bad themselves), but it's not funny Whalen...

EDIT: Some really nice 3 cards revealed for Warlock. The Blood Witch seems the least useful, but it's a great curvestone play with the Spider. But she'll find her uses, she boosts the Amethyst for a small price for instance. I like the cards, so many uses and with both new cards and old. Self-Damage Warlock a thing (more then ever at least )? Good design, we will see those cards a lot in the coming months. I think. Now compare this to D-Aviana :/

This suicide warlock seems cool, do not think it will be a contender with the classics: control, cube & zoo, but a midrange deck is always like a breath of fresh air in hs where there is aggro, combo and control and almost never midrange.

Well I'm sure it will not contend with them, those are refined decks. "Suicide" Warlock seems too slow. But that's not the point. It's the "fun" factor I see in those cards, the fact those are giving me so many ideas already. That's good design imo

EDIT: Dire Frenzy for Hunter. Stonetusk Boars. Huffers. Everywhere!
