Look even closer (with perhaps increased contrast). Those ain't hills. They're mountains of gold with jewels.

So Undermine sounds like a definite possibility. Kul Tiras would be a hilarious option that'd also kinda fit. Perhaps even a general 'trade' expansion with ships and such, that'd be awesome.

Huh, good catch, I think you're right.

Two other groups who typically hoard wealth are dragons and pirates. From a gameplay perspective I can see either as being possible. Most of the dragon support cards left with BRM so introducing some new ones now makes sense. I think Blizz tends to add powerful cards in the 3rd expansion of the Standard year so they have a shorted shelflife (i.e. Un'Goro will last for two years but Gadgetzan will only last for about a year and 4 months). This is doubly true if it is meant to be about pirates since people already hate pirates and making them stronger better not last too long.

This weeks brawl is really cool, it's neat seeing the mashups and I like the little history bits about the brawl during turns.

Bit of a random question but which are the vanilla cards you just can't seem to pull from a pack.

I have long since acquired all the commons but there are some stubborn rares I lack. For the longest time I missed Pint Sized Summoners (but now have 2) and I still lack Mana Wraith. Yep I've opened literally hundreds of vanilla packs and never got a single one. I also lack a few cards that were nerfed and which I DE for dust. All in all 6 rares left.

Epics, I lack several. Many of those hunter epics but that is because I was DEing hunter cards for a while back in vanilla. Some epics I always wanted but never drew were Mind Games (for Randuin Wrynn decks) and Blood Knight. Again some epics I DE when they were nerfed, all in all I lack 21 cards.

Legends I lack 5, Millhouse (I think I got him once and DE), Pagle (crafted and then DE when nerfed), Tinkmaster, Nozdormu and Onyxia. Of those I'd like to have all really because the cheap legs are good for my All Legend decks and I also like super heavy lategame decks so the big dragons are nice too.

Goes to show the scammy nature of packs. You will get most of the commons quickly and rares not too long after but to pull all cards you would have to buy hundreds of packs if not more. Luckily we have DE but that has issues as well...

I think I had to craft knife juggler for my zoolock. Also never got pyroblast so that was a bummer.

So the newest cardback is called The Magic of Dalaran which pretty much settles things, that will be the next expansion.

Also the new features are in, all quests can be completed with friends, decks are easier to share and golden and non-golden cards stack. All of which are nice but hardly something to write home about. Except maybe quests being completed with friends which does allow for super easy questing if the quest is just win games.

Dang I forgot to get last months but when I checked it was probably one of the few I'd have actually wanted, curses.

Knights of the Frozen Throne:



-New hero class: Death Knight. Use the all new "class cards" to transform your hero into a death knight with extra armor, a unique effect, and a new hero power.

-New Adventure: Icecrown Citadel. Releasing for free alongside the expansion. Defeating the first boss awards you with a free death knight class card. However, the difficulty will be much higher than any previous Hearthstone Adventure.

-New keyword: Lifesteal. Any damage dealt by a minion or spell with lifesteal will also heal your hero for the same amount of damage done.

I was pulling for a magic centric Dalaran expansion but it has been clear for some time it will be about the undead instead.

Anyway looks good so far, not too much info or cards released so far however. And imo their presentation was over the top, but hey maybe the target audience likes it more but probs not

PS. I misspelled good as goof which made my sentence into "looks goof so far." What a funny/crappy mistype to make.

It's funny, when I saw the thumbnail on youtube, I originally mistook Jaina for an Orc, and got excited that maybe they were introducing a new Orc Deathknight character as the face of the expansion.

I was, too. Dalaran could've been a really fun adventure and I'm hoping they're open to the idea of it.

Yep. Dalaran has some cool options for PvE content, perhaps a magic academy idea with tests/duels against powerful mages, some investigating through the city of Dalaran on a crime investigation or maybe simply have us raid the prison. Also Dalaran is very interesting and colorful so plenty of card design options. Spells would be the focus of the expansion and mage spells in particular (like how paladins were for TGT) and I just so happen to be a mage main... oh well.
