  • Choose Your Champion – voting closes June 27th – can earn up to 4 card packs https://playhearthstone.com/en-us/esports/tournament/hct-summer-championship-2018/choose-your-champion
  • Hearthstone Tavern Talk – New series of posts for communicating with the community on the forums.
    • Are there any additional rewards for players who have achieved a Golden Hero in every class?  No plans for more.  They want new features or rewards to be obtained by 10% or more of players.  Only a few players have all 9 Golden Heroes.
    • Do you have any changes planned for the new player experience? We have some small ladder changes that we would like to do at some point, specifically targeted at new players when they first enter the game. The change will add some additional ranks above rank 25 that new players can play through before having to play more invested players. There will only be forward advancement through those ranks, so even if they lose, no one will be able to drop back down.
    • What are your thoughts on alternate card art or reprints of cards from earlier sets?  Alternate card art is something we have avoided because players almost always use art to recognize a card and instantly know what it does. Good gameplay is very important to us so we have avoided adding multiple pieces of art for a single card. Reprints are something that we have discussed in the past, but we would want to do so only after careful consideration. We don’t have any specific plans for this in the near future.
  • Peter Whalen & Dean Ayala Interview – Old Witchwood card designs (IGN)
    • They like 2 Legendaries per class because it allows them to take classes in two different directions.
    • Creating powerful cards like Drakonid Operative right before a set rotates is ok if the power level of the card in Standard will decrease.
    • The first set of a new year is where they want to experiment the most with a lot of archetypes.
    • There aren’t currently any plans to create more cards that require Odd or Even deckbuilding.
    • There is a mailing list at Blizzard for other people within the company to pitch card design ideas. Toki, Time-Tinker’s effect came from this list.

Espo Mode

Shadow Reflection

Build a deck of any size, and we’ll fill the rest of the 30 cards with Shadow Reflections that copy the last card you play!  Shadow Reflection – Each time you play a card, transform this into a copy of it.

How it Works

  • Choose your own class!
  • Build a deck with any number of cards you want. It can be anything between 1 card (not at all recommended) and 30 (also not recommended).
  • Any remaining slots in your deck get filled with Shadow Reflection.
  • Find some awesome combos and get slaying your opponents!
