BlizzPro's Hearthstone

 

While a lot of people scream for nerfs when cards feel overpowered, I don’t see many people calling for buffs to long forgotten cards. In my mind, every non-joke card should at least be a decent fit in a viable deck. Also, the meta would grow a lot more interesting if a wider array of cards suddenly started seeing play. So without further ado… Welcome back to Mending Mondays, a weekly feature where I, Dannie “IAmDiR23″ Ray will take a look at some of the worst cards in the Hearthstone and evaluate why they are deemed to be horrible, and what could be done to fix them. Wailing Soul is actually one of my favorite cards from the Hearthstone expansion, yet it hasn’t amounted to much besides some appearances on gimmick decks. This week’s edition of Mending Mondays is actually a double experiment as we for the first time take ...

Hearthstone is a pretty fun game by itself, just the numbers and cool abilities, different heroes, and the ever changing metagame. Even if some might regard to it as “casual”, Hearthstone has enough meat to it to keep an avid theorycrafter busy for days. But ever since Blizzcon, I’ve become pretty interested with other side of Hearthstone, and that’s its E-Sport potential. I’ve spent plenty of hours not only watching and enjoying, but also analyzing every aspect of Hearthstone’s E-Sport aspect. Last week we started talking about Tournament Formats, specially the existing ones. This week we will turn around and introduce a few Tournament Format Concepts of our own, stick around to see how this two wild ideas could change the way we look at Hearthstone eSports. The Double Duel Format Deck match-ups can be a real issue on Hearthstone. Regardless of how you build your line-up, the first match ...

 

Deck of the Week: Savjz Eboladin

by JR Cook on

Is aggro more of your style of play than control? Getting sick of Face Hunter or Warlock Zoo and want a little bit of a different taste? Well, Savjz’s Eboladin might be the deck for you. This deck is centered around Hobgoblin and turning your lowly 1 attack creatures in 3 attack creatures. The deck is also built to get you a ton of card draw, especially if you’re playing against control decks by using Divine Favor and Jeeves. If you have the right card draw you can easily play your hand out with some strong creatures and quickly replenish for the next turn. Here is the full deck list: Eboladin Class: Paladin Paladin (8) Blessing of Might x2 Coghammer x2 Divine Favor x2 Truesilver Champion x2 Neutral (22) Wisp x2 Abusive Sergeant x2 Argent Squire x2 Leper Gnome x2 Annoy-o-Tron x2 Echoing Ooze x2 Haunted Creeper x2 Ironbeak Owl Knife ...

We still have 15 cards to be revealed for Blackrock Mountain before the new adventure mode releases on April 2nd. In the past Blizzard has dumped these on social media or to some sites, this time however they will be doing a live streamed event. Community manager Zeriyah will be joined by community manager Writhun (or as many of you reading this know him as, the former BlizzPro Hearthstone site manager Robert Wing). The live stream will take place on http://www.twitch.tv/playhearthstone at 10 AM PDT. What do you think we’ll see revealed? Any bold predictions on cards?...

The day after the internet becomes useless (April Fool’s Day) Blizzard will be releasing the next saga in Hearthstone. April 2nd, Blackrock Mountain will be available for players. If you want the exclusive card back, make sure you pre-order before April 2nd with real money for $24.99.

Blackrock Mountain introduces 31 new cards that are too hot to handle, all obtained by emerging victorious in epic battles against some of the mountain’s most ...

We have 3 new cards revealed today which brings us at the half way point of cards revealed. All 3 are neutral cards and it includes the 2nd legendary we have seen. Volcanic Drake takes on the Dragon’s Breath ability we saw revealed earlier in the week with the mage. We could see some fun AoE board clears with the mage that ends in dropping a free or cheap 6/4 afterwards. Drakonid Crusher might be able to find it’s way into Warrior Control decks. The battlecry puts him in Big Game Hunter range but he’s a 6/6 for 6 mana. With the battlecry he’s a 9/9. As many big targets as Warrior Control runs, BGH is going to run out quickly so it’s a perfect spot for this. Nefarian is going to be a really fun card. I personally can’t wait to see people get Force of Nature and Savage ...

Welcome to “Got Lethal?” a (hopefully) weekly feature that will try to put you on complicated, yet winnable situations. We will bring you puzzles of sorts where you are tasked with determining the best line of play, which mostly is play that will guarantee you the victory. Maybe this will help you train your pro-skills and perhaps with a bit of luck you won’t Miss Lethal ever again, or maybe the scenarios are way too fantastic to be of help on serious matches, anyway at least I hope you can have fun with them....

We have a couple new cards revealed today with the 2nd mage class card getting revealed and another neutral card getting revealed. That puts us to 18 cards left out of 31 to still see. The mage card Dragon’s Breath is an interesting card. It costs more than fireball (in some cases) an yet does less damage. However, the more minions you kill the cheaper it is to cast. I can actually see this being used with area of effect spells like Blizzard and Flamestrike as a way to finish off that one big creature for cheap. You can effectively take out an 8/8 and for 7 mana plus all their other minions with an effective flamestrike that might result in a free Dragon’s Breath. The neutral card Blackwing Corrupter is another card that has synergy with having a dragon in your hand. If you’re holding a dragon, it’s battlecry ...
