Hearthstone Witchwood cards REVEAL: Heroes of Warcraft expansion first look

Hearthstone: The Witchwood expansion will have a Dungeon Run-style 'Monster Hunt' mode

The Year of the Raven is due to arrive in mid-April, and Blizzard revealed today the first of the card game's three planned expansions for the next year. The citizens of this proud kingdom, who can shapeshift into ferocious wolf-beasts known as worgen, are bringing the fight to The Witchwood with tooth and claw-and soon, Hearthstone players will join the pack and help them face down the horrors within. More are set to be revealed around March 26.

"Rush" minions function much like Charge minions in that they can attack immediately after being summoned, but can only attack other minions.

Some cards have already been printed that utilize similar mechanics. However, Rush cards can only attack minions on the turn they're dropped, not the enemy hero. Azalina Soulthief will replace your hand with an exact copy of your opponent's, which should lead to some interesting strategic back-and forth; there's also Genn Greymane, a neutral minion who will reduce your starting Hero Power cost to just 1 if your deck has only even-cost cards at the beginning of the match, and Baku the Mooneater, who will upgrade your Hero Power if your deck contains only odd-cost cards. Echo, allows you to play as many copies of that card as you want during a turn, meaning if you had 9 mana, you could play three copies of Phantom Militia. We still don't know if this card will be included in the Adapt effects rotation though.

Time to collect your dust, this expansion looks like it will be home to some seriously powerful cards!

The lovably goofy reveal trailer ended with a glimpse, but only a glimpse, at a new Warlock Hero card.

Neil Walker, Yankees agree to deal, source says
Anthony Rieber covers baseball, as well as the NFL, NBA and National Hockey League , for the sports department. Walker will land at second base, ending the positional battle that had been brewing during spring training.

Monster Hunts will send players deep into The Witchwood to stamp out the evils that lurk within. It will launch two weeks after The Witchwood expansion.

"Allies of Gilneas can pre-purchase The Witchwood card packs in a special 50-pack bundle that also includes 20 bonus packs, as well as the "In a Dark Wood" card back for free".

Much like the single-player mode Dungeon Run from the 2017 Hearthstone expansion Kobolds & Catacombs, Monster Hunt will pit players against a series of bosses and reward players with select groupings of cards to further build your Monster Hunt deck.

For those that have been waiting for a new mode, you'll be getting it with Witchwood as well.
