So apparently there has been a split between the 3 people creating this site. The programmer on one side, Merps/ADWCTA on the other. Still not sure how this will end up.

Espo Mode

Ragnaros Vs Nefarian v2

Pre-made decks with cards from all expansions, including some fun cards that are only in these encounters. One change, Nefarian starts with only 4 mana instead of 5, which many believed was causing Nefarian to win more often than reasonable.

The League of Explorers

45 new cards released over 4 wings

New Characters, New Locations

You are searching for the Staff of Origination. Elise Starseeker is leading the charge for finding this artifact.

You get the following two cards no matter how many wings you purchase.

[Explorer’s Hat] – Hunter. 2 mana, Give a minion +1/+1 and “Deathrattle: Add an Explorer’s Hat to your hand.”

[Forgotten Torch] – Mage. 3 mana, Deal 3 damage. Shuffle a ‘Roaring Torch’ into your deck that deals 6 damage.

[Roaring Torch] – Mage. 3 mana, Deal 6 damage.

Wing 1 – Temple of Orsis

The first piece is in the Temple of Orsis. Reno Jackson is the explorer going after this piece. New board, the Excavation board.

First thing, Reno grabs a lamp and that brings out a genie, Zinaar (30 health). Genie’s grant wishes, which he gives you throughout the battle.

[Jeweled Scarab] – Neutral. 2 mana, 1 / 1 Beast, Battlecry: Discover a (3) – Cost card.

When you defeat Zinaar, you earn the following card:

[Djinni of Zephyrs] – Neutral. 5 mana, 4/6 minion, Whenever you cast a spell on another friendly minion, cast a copy of it on this one.   (Ben Brode said when using Power Word: Shield on this minion, you get to draw twice. So this text casts the spell twice getting the casting benefits twice)

This card comes from one of the Warrior class challenge:

[Obsidian Destroyer] – 7 mana, 7/7 minion, At the end of your turn, summon a 1/1 Scarab with Taunt.  (Warrior Card) – Upgraded Hogger

If you make it to the treasure room, you will find the Rod of the Sun. Guarded by the Sun Raider Phaerix. (30 health)

Whoever holds it is immune to damage. And you can steal it from him.

You will earn these cards:  

[Anubisath Sentinel] – Neutral. 5 mana, 4/4 minion, Deathrattle: Give a random friendly minion +3/+3.

[Summoning Stone] – Neutral. 5 mana, 0/6 minion, Whenever you cast a spell, summon a random minion of the same Cost.

[Dark Peddler] – 2 mana, 2/2 minion, Battlecry: Discover a (1)-Cost card.  (Warlock) (BB said Warlock or Neutral card is drawn)

After you have the first piece, the temple falls apart and you enter a mission. No enemy hero but you have to survive long enough before the temple collapses. You have a number of turns to ‘escape’. If you survive, you get the following cards:

[Rumbling Elemental] – 4 mana, 2/6 minion, After you play a Battlecry minion, deal 2 damage to a random enemy.  (Shaman)

[Sacred Trial] – 1 mana, Secret: When your opponent has at least 3 minions and plays another, destroy it. (Paladin Secret)

[Ancient Shade] – Neutral. 4 mana, 7/4 minion, Battlecry: Shuffle an ‘Ancient Curse’ into your deck that deals 7 damage to you when drawn.

[Reno Jackson] – Legendary – 6 mana, 4/6 minion, Battlecry: If your deck contains no more than 1 of any card, fully heal your hero.
