Blizzard announced via the Hearthstone Forums today that two cards that have been hotly debated since the dawn of the latest expansion, Mean Streets of Gadgetzen, will be receiving changes. The first of the cards will be Small-Time Buccaneer will be getting its health changed from 2 to 1 which should allow for an easier time for players to deal with this minion. Secondly, Spirit Claws will now cost 2 instead of only 1. Shaman is clearly a strong deck and this should help with slowing down it’s ramp up. The other announcement included in this post has to do with Ranked Play changes, and ranking floors. As of now, the currently floor (the point at which you can no longer lose rank) is at 20. When 7.1 hits, this will add additional floors to ranks 15, 10, and 5. The explanation for this was outlined in Zeriyah’s post below:
Spark from the Good Gaming Inc. wrote a very good guide on Tempo Mage. He gives thorough inside in tech decisions, mulligans and match-ups. Even though the new set, Mean Streets of Gadgetzan is coming out today, it is worth a read. Until the new meta stabilizes and everybody is testing out new and unpolished decks, you can snatch some wins to climb ranks with a well rounded and fun deck.

Note: This article will be updated as soon as new details arise. Bookmark it for your convenience. Overview: Who is Kazakus? Kazakus is the first Tri-Class Legendary that was spoiled from the new Hearthstone Expansion Mean Streets of Gadgetzan (MSoG) and he is a real interesting one. First, lets take a look at his card text and stats: Mana Cost: 4 Attack: 3 Health: 3 Type: Minion Rarity: Legendary Class: Mage/Priest/Warlock Text: Battlecry: If your deck has no duplicates, create a custom spell. Custom spell? That’s the way we want it! In fact, the community was asking for this exact thing quite a long time. Ok, but what is this custom spell thing? You obviously cannot just write a custom text down in your time limit and then fire it off. The process of putting together a spell is a sequence of three discover mechanics, discovering a potion/ingredient each which
Yogg-Saron is fun and he is a surprisingly good comeback card. That’s why the old god became more and more popular over the last weeks. I already covered his mechanic in the Yogg-Saron Infographic on June 24th. With the increasing appearance in the game, there are viable decks for a lot of classes already available. Today, I will bring you at least one deck for every class, that you too will be able to take the god of death into the new ranked season (S28). I can only encourage you to try at least some of the decks. They may not only be viable on ladder but also incredibly fun. The playstyles of these compositions are a bit more demanding compared to cookie cutter decks though, but in the end, if you become able to master them, they can feel very rewarding. Be sure to check out the infographic article I mentioned above. In it, give you a lot
Secrets have kind of fallen out of favor in Standard with Mad Scientist missing. HSSpaceWizard made a nice video (see below) for hearthhead.com in which he explains the details and “The State of Secrets” in Standard. This reminded me to update my old Secrets Infographic for Whispers of the Old Gods. Nothing more, nothing less. Have fun!
A very well met to all of you. Today’s short article is for all of the Johnnys and to some extend also for the Timmys as the decks I will show you involve a lot of huge creatures too. It is not really fit for the Spikes out there though, they just have to continue playing Midrange Shaman, Miracle Rogue and N’Zoth Paladin. You don’t know what I am talking about? Take a look at this MTG article here. In short there are three type of players: Timmy, Johnny and Spike. For Timmy it is all huge minions and huge spells, if he wins, which is less common for his style of play, he wants to win with all these big bombs. Johnny cares about winning, but he wants to win with style! Spike is the tryhard player. All that is important is winning, no matter how boring it gets.
When I first saw this card, my gut reaction was „meh“ and so were the reactions of many others. Despite this initial assessment, Cabalist’s Tome saw lots of experimentation in the early days of Whispers of the Old Gods. Especially in the combination with Yogg-Saron, Hope’s End has unleashed its power and made it popular. There are many variations of these decks, one of the first was Amaz’s Tempo Yogg-Saron Mage. This inspired many other to refine a Mage list with a lot of spells to slam down a Yogg during late game and watch the spell show. I took a variation of Amaz’s deck I saw today on TheEmero’s twitch channel and a freeze variation from Savjz’s channel which I included in this infographic. I do not know, if the deck list are their very own or if credits go to another deckbuilder. I you know who first build
Well met! Today’s infographic is none of your business, haha … Ok, bad jokes aside, but I could not resist on this one. In the newest infographic I will dive deep into everything about secrets. In my personal experience, secrets part players in two. Some really like them and others despise them. I personally like them a lot because they are the only way to interact with the opponents on their turn. It feels really rewarding if you play secrets in a way it totally changes how your opponents have to play their turn. It is also possible to play secrets in a way to totally mislead the opposing player. Upcoming changes in Standard Up until now, one card, with the exception of paladin, went came always along with secrets: Mad Scientist. With the announcement of “Standard” and “Wild” though, it will fade into the oblivion of Wild play mode. I
Sponsors – GamersGearEU | twitter – @Fade2Karma | Facebook – Fade2Karma | www.Fade2Karma.com Every week the pros from team Fade2Karma break down the “Deck of the Week” . These decks are seeing a lot of play either in constructed ladder or tournaments. Team F2K explain the deck lists and how to play them. View past Deck Lists of the Week. This week’s deck is written by pro player F2K-Chalk. This deck, by far, is my favorite deck not because it is the strongest deck in ladder, but because of its ability to adapt in various Meta changes. Last season, it was the only deck I used to get to legend and I managed to maintain a top 100 position. Tempo Mage is flexible, fun to play, and gives you a lot of room to edit and customize. Core Cards Minions (10) Mana Wyrm 2x Mad Scientist 2x Sorcerer’s Apprentice 2x Flamewaker 2x Azure Drake 1x Loatheb 1x Spells
Amaz revealed a new mage spell on his stream today. This card will probably see more play in arena than you will see in constructed. Polymorph is a far superior removal spell and costs 1 less. As Amaz said during his stream, the times you might see this card is with Spell Slinger and Nexus Champion Saraad when it’s the random spell you get. What do you think of this card? Let us know in the comments. Check out our full spoiler list for everything that’s been revealed so far.
