BlizzPro's Hearthstone

 

Hi Danny Donuts here again. Right now we are halfway through the release of the new cards from ONiK. This article will be a recap of what has happened in the past few weeks as the Wings of Karazan have released. It is really interesting to see some of the decks that have been made viable by the new cards introduced, and how the meta changes week by week. These comments that I am making should be taken with a grain of salt, as the meta is currently in flux, and these decks that are currently good may not be as the meta is shaken more by the next two weeks, or as it settles down in the upcoming months. Week 1 Great Priest of the Feast I believe that everyone complaining about Purify really led to this card being underestimated. At this point, it has been extremely powerful in ...

Introduction The Menagerie, the third wing of One Night in Karazhan (ONiK) will open its doors for NA Hearthstone players later today, the rest of the world will have to wait a litlle longer, most likely about 4-8 hours past the initial NA release. If you want to buy the wing, it will cost you 700 gold or 7 US$. Let’s take a look at this week’s cards… Cards of “The Menagerie” Card Predictions As in last week’s preview, I will not talk about every single card in this article again, as we already did individual initial reviews. I kindly invite you to take a look back at our Karazhan Card Evaluation #1 to #7 articles or to head to my Karazhan Power Rankings. Some predictions of these reviews already were proven wrong (hello Wicked Witchdoctor) but most were on point or really close. Today, I will provide a look at the actual state of ...

The 2nd wing for One Night in Karazhan has been released and I think this week you’ll find yourself taking a lot less time navigating through this wing as last week’s took. In fact, these deck lists should not only get you to one shot them on normal, but there’s a good chance you’ll one shot them on heroic as well. It might take a couple extra tries but for the most part, this week was fairly easy. Julianne Julianne is invincible for as long as Romulo is on the board. Her hero power brings back Romulo who is a 4/2 minion. She plays a lot of taunt minions and goes face a lot. The strategy here is to control the board as much as possible, keep yourself healed up and kill Romulo when you have additional minions to hit her face. For this fight I went with a Reno ...

One Night in Karazhan has dropped and the Prologue mission (free) and the The Parlor (first wing) is now open. Two of the boss battles on these use pre-constructed decks and I provided some videos below of the heroic versions. The other two heroic bosses require you to develop your own decks, and in this instance I found I could use the same deck list with ease for both encounters. If you’d like to see what cards you get for completing the wings this week make sure to check our spoiler list. Prologue – Prince Malchezaar This fight is all about recycling your spells and trying to get really big turns where you can pop off spells, get a ton of spell damage and just destroy your opponent. You can be more selective of getting certain spells back than I was, but it still seemed to work. Silverware Golem He ...

Introduction Last week we saw all the cards of the upcoming adventure “One Night in Karazhan” revealed. Danny and I already reviewed every card by itself in the Karazhan Card Evaluation #1 to #7. With this article, I want to evaluate which classes might be the winners and which could be the losers of this set. I will present you my totally subjective opinions of whether a class might profit from the Karazhan adventure, or not, as well as the reasoning behind it. Keep in mind that my view will be limited to Standard play mode and competitive play. Despite all theorycrafting and research of reactions by pro players, there are two classes with still unknown outcomes, Rogue and Warlock, both of which can either end up in the winner or loser category. I will start with those two and then follow up with the remaining classes from worst to best. Unknown ? – Rogue. Valeera ...

Back in July Deck Slingers gathered by the fireside at the University of California, Irvine, competing to determine which champion would reign victorious in the game of Hearthstone. Attendees also had the opportunity to win several other prizes being raffled off. But this wasn’t just any Fireside Gathering, this is where the great Azeroth Guardian Medivh had sent his companions along with a handful of golden tickets. The tickets themselves were an invitation to something most mysterious, but he made sure those who received them knew full and well that they would be in for a most majestic, marvelous, magical event, the likes of which have never been seen before! Five lucky individuals found themselves with what is likely the greatest Fireside Gathering prize of all time. They were each able to bring a friend with them and embark on what indeed was a magical adventure that at the time they ...
