IGN’s United in Stormwind Hearthstone Card Reveal

Hearthstone’s next expansion, United in Stormwind, will be released on August 3 (August 4 in ANZ) and is set to bring some powerful new cards and mechanics into the game.  Questlines, for instance, are three-part quests with small rewards at each step, topped off by a legendary one once complete (see the example below).

The curve of the deck is low – generally topping out at 5 or so to ensure whatever they draw can usually be played, and as the game progresses Zoo players take advantage of the Warlock’s hero power (take two damage and draw a card) to ensure they can play at least two cards a turn. Historically, buffs have been a huge part of the deck too, as they allow cheap minions to trade up (i.e. to kill a bigger, more expensive one), or to pile on additional damage to finish the game.Shady Bartender fits neatly into the part of Zoo that’s all about buffing minions, and could perhaps be compared to a card like Fungalmancer, which became a really powerful option in…
