Not sure how to pull the video but here is a link to a video announcing the new expansion with a few new archetypes including legendary spells, magnetic cards that stick to mechs, spells that help both players at the same time and quantum something that has a different ability when you get to 10 mana.

I don't know Warcraft lore at all, but there is mention of the Netherstorm in that teaser vid.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

If there is a mech on board and I play one of the new magnetic cards, do we know if it auto attaches to the mech, or if I have the opportunity to choose?

E.g 3/3 mech on board and I play the new Spider Bomb card, can I choose to have a 3/3 and 2/2 deathrattle board, or just the 5/5 DR option?

New Warlock Hero card Mecha-Jaraxxus also announced in addition to the cards previewed in the above btw.

As I understood it, you have the opportunity to choose. Could easily be wrong though.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

Post Mecha Jaraxxus? PogChamp

I'd be surprised if you couldn't play magnetic cards without being forced to attach it to an existing mech

Can't wait for a mech meta, annoy-o-tron HYPE

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

Is there anyway to determine what calendar date that a card rotates out? I'd like to craft some cards but not sure how long they'll be in standard.

At this point, Standard format will be updated to include only card sets added to the game in the current or previous calendar year, as well as the Basic and Classic sets. Cards from older card sets will no longer be available in Standard format.[1] The selection is not updated at the start of the calendar year, or upon release of expansions past the first in any given year. This is in order to minimise the disruption of removing sets from Standard format play, which can be especially disorienting to returning players.[5][6]
https://hearthstone.gamepedia.com/Standard_format

Here is a list of sets:

https://hearthstone.gamepedia.com/Card_set#List

Un'goro, KOTFT and Kobolds will become Wild when the first expansion comes out next year. This year Witchwood was released on April 12th (previous years it was April 6th and April 26th). So those 3 sets will be wrapping up around April 2019. Witchwood won't be rolling into Wild until April, 2020.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

Blizz genius letting you purchase both bundles

I bought the 80 cuz I want the hero and their history of allowing you to purchase heros again in the future is not good

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

after playing around with Mecha Jaraxxus I don't like him that much, prefer Nemsy

side note August card back is incredible:

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

the amount of boo-hooing about Jaraxxus being behind a paywall and people complaining they got 70 packs in WW is actually ****ing glorious.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

damn i just opened trackobot for probably the first time in 2 years and I have 8k games logged at 54% winrate

really curious what my stats are in the last year but i can't get this app to work on the browser, it's super buggy.

Only opened it because i just had the most absurd game vs a shudderwock and i wanted to link the replay (i guess trackobot cant do that), he was probably the worst player I've ever seen. Absolutely no clue how to play the deck, he had his win condition for probably 47 turns but just wouldnt play it for some reason. he was emoting too, lol.

And I mostly play on my phone nowadays. ****. I wish i didn't lose my old HS deck tracker DB. I no longer use that app because it's a bug ridden disaster.

Re: Hearthstone?! (Blizzard online card game)

It will work in pretty much any Mage archetype imo. Not sure how people don't think it's good. 3 mana 3/4 draw at least one card is strong iyam
