Hearthstone – Bringing singleplayer and 30 new cards! [5 of them below]

HS News - Curse of Naxramas - A heartstone Adventurer

Hello Nurglings!

Blizzard just announced some awesome news for Hearthstone. They will finally give us a singleplayer like experience with a dungeon like mode within Hearhstone.
Tho the news I feel is most important to me as a constructed player (with hardly any money) is to see what the 30 new cards will be. It’s fun to see the new commons and rares that we can add to our cheap decks. And the five that has been shown so far (I was really close on the spider egg effect btw!) seems interesting enough.

Back to the event part:

The whole thing is a single-player experience within HS, you play through “five wings” and at each level you face bosses, challenges and unlock cards for your collection. Sounds sweet! I thought… until I read that beyond the first wing you will actually have to pay to enter the next stage (with gold or real money), and this kinda makes my eye twitch a little bit. I don’t mind if the gold price Is fairly costed (the same cost of a arena run would be fine with me), but anything that seems way to high for casual players would just make me irritated.

I know you want to make money, but please give the poor players a fair chance to experience this as well!

Now let’s move on to comment the cards!

HS Spoiler - New Card - Undertaker
So we don’t know about all the new Deathrattle cards that will be coming out so it’s kinda hard to say if this card is “good” or not. I would say that it’s okay at the moment. Every other Deathrattle card basicly gets a Shattered Sun Cleric battlecry attached to them (well for this card). And there are a few that already see play and are actually played in the earlier turns. Once again, not sure if that makes it worht this card for a chance of pumping it up. You probably want to play a card that makes sure you get some value. Hard to say at the moment tho, will be interesting to see if people try this card out.

HS Spoiler - New Card - Naxxramas
Okay I love this card! So the place I already see it in, is the Miracle Rogue deck. Being able to play a card turn 3 that have stealth built in that will grow every turn after that? Yes please! Seems to be a very strong card for that deck and maybe even for other decks depending on how long they want to stay in the game. Remember tho that Miracle Rogue is not the strongest deck in the game exactly but it’s fun to see a new card that works for that deck.

HS Spoiler - New Card - Nerubian Egg
This card is interesting. I was very close on my guess on this cards effect, I was right on the deathrattle and what kind of effect it would have (tho I guessed a 5/5). But I was also hoping for the card to have built in Taunt, to make it hard for your opponent to decide if he wants to attack for a turn or not. You can still give it taunt with other cards of course, or give it attack so that you can trade it with another minion and get the spider out on the field. The card gives some great value when it creates a 5/5 in a trading situations, and even giving it taunt will create strong situations for you. Your opponent dont want to attack it unless they can handle the 5/5 with what they have available to them, but not attacking it would also mean one or two wasted turns (depending on the gameplan of the deck of course). I do believe it’s a strong card, but at the same time I think it’s hard to find a great place for it right now. Is it a better Taunt card than Ancient Watcher? Maybe.

HS Spoiler - New Card - Dancing Swords
You get a cheap big creature, and it may be worth it if they waste 2+ cards on it. Most of the time they wont. So. Yea. No. The problem is that you lose the card AND your opponent gains a card. Even if he trades 1for1, he still replaces the card he used and you get nothing from it. Don’t like him. Rather play Harvest Golem turn 3 that gives me a similar situation instead of him, or even a Yeti on turn 4.

HS Spoiler - New Card - Baron Rivendare
It’s lacking the attack, but triggering Deathrattle on your minions twice? It’s pretty good actually! He’s cheaply costed enough to make it worth while as well, you get 2 minions from Harvest Golem, you draw 2 cards from Loor Hoarder, Leper Gnome deals 4 damage, Sylvanas Windrunnes takes 2 minions, Carine Bloodhoof gives you 2 minions. Spider Egg gives you two minions. Yea. Seems to be fine when the value is there!

Can’t wait to see what more they will bring to the game, and I’m excited to see how it will change the meta game and decks being played. COME ON PRIEST!

So where will you use the new cards if anywhere, are you happy with them? Dissapointed?
Let me know in the comments below!

Until next time Nurglings, take care.
Cya soon!

Thoughts. Blog. Bored.

Hello everyone!

I’m just about to post a new Yu gi oh nerds gone wild video on here. I know that most of you don’t understand those videos and I’m sorry. Really, I kinda am. Anyway I just wanted to give you a tiny update on everything and nothing.

The last few days have been ups and downs all over, and I guess I haven’t really added that much new fun content on here, a few videos but nothing really fun. I will try my best to do something interesting for the blog soon I promise. Like the card game reviews I recently talked about.

I’m glad you guys are still here with me though, even when it’s moving slow. Tomorrow there’s a “Big Standard” tournament at my local gaming shop, which basically is a Magic standard tournament with big prices. I don’t really have that much money to spend right now so, I’m taking a step back from that one (yes there’s an entry fee). I would have loved to enter with some random kick ass deck like I always do though.
For all of you that’s been waiting for my shop to open, I’m working hard on that to actually happen, the planning is underway and I’m even having some discussions with a web designer. I’ve been looking for distributors as well to find some fun items for the shop, and I’ve been doing well, lots of nice card sleeves and deck boxes are hitting the store shelves on opening day.

When that happens… I will be back to tell you!

Until next time, stay safe.

Cya soon!
