Yeah they seem pretty strong. But knowing how strong cards we already have, they have to be. We don't want another Witchwood expansion

You know pretty well that in this game it's not about if a card is strong, but rather "if it's strong in the current meta". Spellburst cards seem strong, but for their relative value you need to count in the added mana cost of the actual spell you will use (because I don't see Spellburst minions surviving until next turn).

Oh, and don't look at Demon Hunter. The class power level is still a joke

True, but in the current meta Mage still has an array of cheap spells to play. So that Mage legendary seems almost OTK levels insane to me.

Wait what? Mage Legendary is one of the weak ones. Spell Mage although can be seen on ladder, is never brought on tournaments, because it is about a tier 4 deck lol, I can't understand what makes you think it is so strong?

Higlander Mage is stronger, and the legendary doesn't fit there at all.

Remember that "current" meta actually means "after expansion hits" meta. Spellburst minions generally encourage inclusion of low cost spells to activate the spell burst right away. So things may just change.

Of course, but still, a card that does nothing the turn it is played and NEEDS tons of other cheap cards to be in your hand when you play it to buff the spell damage, and THEN you can reap the rewards with following Damage spells... seems so gimmicky. So unreliable. I can't see it

I want it to work though, I do love Mage. But I personally believe that this card won't be one of the strong ones of the set. And hard to see "insanely strong" even less.

Oh it gets better (or worse if you prefer). Deck and hand manipulations seems to be the theme of the day.

Interesting.

And now we are getting a straight on MtG mechanic. Scry.

There is only so much they can devise, until they start to look to other games for reference. But I kinda dig this expansions. What seemed like a gimmicky school antics theme is actualy more of an "experiment" and scholastics/academics one, and thus we seem to be getting a lot of deck manipulating cards...

EDIT: Damn, I realized Scholomance is an actual dungeon in WoW. It's the place where Khel'Thuzad trained his agents before spreading the Plague to Lordaeron...

I like that they went back to doing a more dark expansion (DH one) and then on to a more vibrant colourful one.

A lot of new stuff. At first glance it looked dull, but there keeps coming out weird and crazy cards.

I mostly like the dual class. Spellburst confuses me.

I smell kancer:



YES. I know you need a minion on board but... play either that 2/2 for 1 or 1/3 mole with Coin and you have and you have 4/4 worth of stats on board turn one. If this isn't powercreep then nothing is...

Btw it's pretty fun to look for all the refrences in WoW regarding teh cards cause most Legendaries are... living versions of their respective dungeon bosses I wonder what Turalyon is doing here though...

So, like playing two blazing battlemages on turn 1? Powerful - yes, but doesn't sound new.

Well, yeah, but your still gettin another 1/1 token to hand and Beast to boot. I didn't mention this effect cus it's plain to see but it's a lot of value for 1 mana I think...

PS: Did you guys see the "Soul Fragment" mechanic? A bunch of cards were revealed that work with this mechanic. You might wonder about filling your deck with these and randomly drawing them, but then you remember this guy - Lorekeeper Polkelt. It's important to note Fragments have the "use and draw another card" feature, so you don't waste a card draw with them

Video about Soul Fragments

I too was looking up NPC's from Scholomance dungeon. Pretty fun
But what about the new Hunter legendary Professor Slate. The artwork clearly shows him standing in Zangarmarch.

Soul fragments - I feel like it is just this sets Librams. A one off feature never to be seen ever again. oh well..

but the powerlvl of some of the cards. wauw! .. Atm I feel like this year is off to an amazing start. DH-expansion had some insane stuff, and this one is pretty cool as well.

https://wow.gamepedia.com/Professor_Slate - they probably wanted something to utilize the Poison ability.

I must say they still can bring some original ideas to the table, like this cute elephant here:



EDIT: Such a cool ability

Card dump complete.

So what do you guys think? I think this will be an interesting expansion with many new mechanics. Seems they still have some ideas left, maybe they added some new team members with fresh ideas?

My biggest surprise is that this expansion is not so much about school antics imo but more about "experiments and scholastics" in general. Many cards look not so whimsical but actually dreadful.

The expansion seems to be a "horror-like" dungeon raid under disguise. I like it, and with so many new things to try I'm actually at a loss what to try out first

Okay. Did not google Professor Slate, so did not know he was a character from the dungeon But nice!

I like it. It seems like a solid mid-year expansion with some insane powerlvl cards.
I like the flavour of the expansion. Yet again Team 5 shows that they have a lot of creativity and really does a good job at giving us a different look on some familiar faces.
I do agree with you about it seems like some fresh blood has suited the HS team.

This year of Hearthstone seems to one of the best in years. Demon Hunter + two solid expansions. I like.

There are many people who would disgree with you. DH is considered badly designed (some even say he was made so to lure more players) and power level of a few cards is off the charts (thus frequent nerfs).

But I like the year so far. I'm not so hyped with Hearthstone anymore but I like what I'm seeing.

PS: I wonder what the new game mode will be...
