This year’s Hearthstone announcement brought great joy to the community. Blizzard made revealed the new expansion, Whispers of the Old Gods, before the start of the America’s Winter Championship. The announcement included a cinematic trailer and a few card reveals, with more to come in the close future.

Unfortunately for most of us, only a small batch of cards have been showcased. However, they represent some new ideas that will no doubt change the current metagame and make the game more flexible.

The new Whispers of the Old Gods card designs feel completely different to what players are used to, adding more flavour to the current gameplay. Although we were expecting some new mechanics to be implemented and even a new class, most of the cards that were published by Blizzard were corrupted versions of current cards.

The most impactful card in the Whispers of the Old Gods a great margin is C’Thun, which has a Battlecry mechanic similar to Avenging Wrath and boasts synergy with some of the new cards that buff C’Thun throughout the match. Here are all the new cards which Blizzard revealed for now:

The developers hope to balance the meta as they are finally introducing a direct counter to Secret Paladin decks in the form of one card: Eater of Secrets. This card will be devastating to Secret Paladin decks and will probably render them obsolete. Not only destroys all the enemy secrets, but it also gains +1/+1 for each secret destroyed.

The best part is that this is a neutral card, and it will probably be used in all decks. There are also plenty of cards that favour a more control oriented metagame, so hopefully we will see some new cards that will also fit Zoo/Face decks in the near future, as Blizzard promised.

Overall, these are very welcome changes and everybody is looking forward to them, especially because players will all receive 3 Whispers of the Old Gods packs when the expansion goes live, with one of the packs guaranteed to contain C’Thun. In total, there will be 134 new cards but for now, all we can do is patiently wait for new releases in future Blizzard announcements on Twitter, Facebook and other social media sources.
