    Just reached Gold earlier today. Guess what deck I was playing.

    Some highlights from the final match before Gold against a Plaguexcavate DK:

    When SMITE had a crossover with Transformers, I lost my mind. Now, my reaction is mostly just "Oh, neat". It's not really that special anymore.

    I feel like these would be a lot more interesting if they were inspired by the property they're crossing over with, rather than being just the characters themselves.

    Didn't expect to see Babyface from Toy Story in this set. Also, I just realized Demon Hunter got a "Spirit of the..." card, but Death Knight, the class that most uses Undead, didn't. Maybe the mini-set.

    Yeah, hopefully the mini-set. Like, Togwaggle trying to steal a bunch of toys from the workshop is a neat storyline.

    Stitchensew: "Mr. Boom, why is there a fuse attached to that Rumbunctious Stuffy?"

    Boom: "Oh, don't worry about it, it's just aesthetic. And I told you it's DOCTOR Boom!"

    Stitchensew: "And I told you that having a PhD in engineering and robotics doesn't make you a doctor."

    Boom: "I don't expect a guy who can't properly explain his own effect to understand etymology."

    Stitchensew: "You're one to talk, Mr. 'WARNING: Bots may explode'!"

    Boom: "Don't tick me off, Stitchens**t! I'm still mad Rafaam couldn't get Lazul and Togwaggle here for a proper E.V.I.L. reunion. Idiot even convinced me to give up my place in the Core se-HEY! Mr. author of this comment! I feel like you're loosing the plot here!"

    If anyone wonders what math has to do with a toy expansion, that's a metaphor for your parents telling you to stop playing and do your homework :P

    Not as weird as SMITE x Transformers, but it's up there.

    It's only lethal if the board is clear and you survive until then, which won't happen if you just cast random machine-gun spells all game. The spell is probably better suited for a control deck that helps you get the board back. It's less "Best use of the spell", and more "Best deck it could be used in".

    Or maybe I'm completely off.

    Yeah, meant enemy hero.

    I only included spells that deal direct damage. Obviously, Rune is great and Puzzlebox of Yogg Saron is the objectively funnier choice over Volley. I just got lazy typing :P

    Alright, let's do some stupid amounts of damage with that orb! Do note that there's no 8 and 9 mana spells in mage that deal direct damage, and no 6 mana that deal damage to the enemy.

    Sunset Volley (10 mana, 10 damage) + Mask of C'Thun (7 mana, 10 damage) + Apexis Blast (5 mana, 5 damage) + Fireball (4 mana, 6 damage) + Cinderstorm (3 mana, 5 damage) + Frostbolt (2 mana, 3 damage) + Arcane Missiles (1 mana, 3 damage) = 42 damage randomly (kinda) split among your enemies.

    Is this the best use of this spell? Absolutely not. But that won't stop people from trying!

    Welp, Wild is gonna be a pain and a half with the new Raza. [Hearthstone Card (Xyrela, the Devout) Not Found] is probably gonna be the biggest pain with the new card, since it doesn't lock you into Shadow spells like Darkbishop Benedictus while also dealing one more damage for the same amount of hero power uses.

    Well, the first batch has Thistle Tea Set, and the second batch from Alliestraza looks to have Pirates. So, congratulations, you're a prophet. Not Togg, though.

    Oh, this is interesting. The flavour text says "three", but the card only gives you 2. They must've nerfed it late in development.

    Actually, they added Mountain Giant back to core, so that's where it lands. First evolve is a random 9-drop, second is Mountain Giant, and third does nothing/transforms into another 12-drop, since there's no 15-cost card.

    It's fake. The ball-goblin-thingie's artwork matches exactly with the main promotional art (the background on our reveals, but it's cropped there) except it's mirror, which Blizzard doesn't do, and the OP of that post either doesn't respond to people asking for a source or is being a prick about it.

    Oh, they responded, allright:


    The ball is indeed on the full promo image for the expansion, looking exactly the same as it does on the "leaked" card except it's mirrored. So the card is clearly fake, but it's a fake with effort.

    I think that once the card leaves your hand, the cost goes back to the original one. It's obvious with the minions, since they're on the board, but that probably goes for the spells too, you just can't easily see it. Meanwhile, the cards in hand take into account the current cost.

    Really wish Hearthstone had a proper graveyard.
