Have they said when they're giving Vargoth to everyone? The expansion is less than a week away now.

The reveal stream is over, and it looks like the card dump is up as well on the official site: https://playhearthstone.com/en-us/expansions-adventures/rise-of-shadows/cards/

Wizards of the Coast needs to be up their asses about the name “Urzatron”. There is no way that’s legal.

It's Ursatron, not Urzatron. Ursa is the Latin word for Bear. Urza is a planeswalker from Magic the Gathering.

(Which is to say, 100% legal, although obviously the pun is intentional or they'd just name it mechan-o-bear or something).

What I'm seeing from this set is that all the cards are value-inspired. There's no real control decks. There's not a lot in the way of aggro. I think Blizzard is hoping everyone plays midrange-y value decks in this meta.

Boy will they be surprised when they didn't add much to combat rush and face decks roll over everyone.

Decks I’m interested in: mech hunter, token/treant Druid, any number of rogue decks, bomb warrior, small spell mage.

Sweeping Strikes (2 mana Warrior spell, give a minion “also damages adjacent minions when attacking”) looks strong.

There is a lot of spell damage on the neutrals this time, maybe it actually catches on for a class like hunter this time?

If there’s anything I’m really surprised by, it’s that paladin got one dragon synergy card, but really only got one other card that goes with it.

I think I mostly want League of EVIL legendaries. Hunter is really the only good class that has legends I’d want, there aren’t too many that I find inspiring, I guess. I don’t think there’s a whole lot that I dislike though.

I just did my Tavern Brawl and like

I won the game because I drew an Iron Juggernaut and then got a fireball from an ensuing Blastwave which the juggernaut set up.

I mean, there are some good taunts in this set, but they aren't cheap.

Safeguard is comparable to sludge belcher in some ways. 6 mana 4/5 taunt deathrattle summon a 0/5 taunt (both ends are mechs).

Tunnel Blaster is a 3/7 taunt for 7, deathrattle deal 3 damage to all minions. This is kind-of comparable to Chillmaw (6/6 taunt deathrattle deal 3 damage to all minions if you're holding a dragon).

I guess there's Proud Defender. 4 mana 2/6 taunt, is a 4/6 taunt if you control no other minions. And Hecklebot as a 4 mana 3/8 taunt that also recruits a minion for your opponent.

But I don't see any obvious replacement for Stonehill Defender/Tar Creeper in the 3 mana slot, and the 4 mana ones might not get there, so yeah, there might be an opening for aggro now.

This was my brawl experience.

Turn 1: Nothing. I kept Bog Creeper, Swift Messenger and Grimestreet Protector in my opening hand hoping they would be playable early, but I wasn't even able to coin one of them out.
Turn 2: I play all three of those previous cards because they were all reduced to one mana on the same turn, giving me a board of 6/6 taunt, 6/8 taunt divine shield and 6/2 rush divine shield, which rushed down a Violet Teacher.

There was no turn 3. I don't remember how many times we've had this brawl now but I can't imagine any of the previous ones ever gave me a turn like that.

It is blatantly intentional.
