Let’s Look at the New Cards Coming via Hearthstone: The Witchwood

All new Hearthstone: The Witchwood Cards

Darkness lurks within The Witchwood™, the upcoming expansion for Blizzard Entertainment’s smash-hit digital
card game Hearthstone®. Soon, players will join Gilneas’ most cunning and courageous heroes as they
venture into the haunted forest to hunt down monsters and outwit witches to claim their bounty in the form
of 135 hair-raising cards, complete with some uncanny new gameplay mechanics.

FRIGHTENING DECK BUILDING CHALLENGES AWAIT

• HAUNTING NEW KEYWORD: ECHO – Exemplifying the spooky feel of the set, cards with the Echo
keyword create a copy of themselves in the player’s hand when played. These ghastly copies can
be played again and again (as long as the player has enough mana!) before disappearing at the
end of the turn.

• EVEN/ODD COST CARDS – Several minions in The Witchwood will reward you for building a deck using
only even- or odd-cost cards, including two neutral Legendary minions:
o Genn Greymane: If your deck has only even-cost cards at the start of the game, your
starting Hero Power costs one mana.
o Baku the Mooneater: If your deck has only odd-cost cards at the start of the game, your
Hero Power is upgraded.

• WORGEN CARDS – Gilneans can transform between their human and wolf-like worgen forms, and so
can some of the cards in The Witchwood. Each turn a worgen card is in a player’s hand, its Attack
and Health are swapped, creating opportunities to play the card at just the right time.

• RUSH YOUR FOES – When played, minions with the new Rush keyword can attack other minions
immediately, but can’t attack the enemy Hero until the following turn.

MONSTERS VERSUS MONSTERS
Normally, a city surrounded by monsters would be a cause for panic . . . but Gilneas is no ordinary city, and
the Gilneans are no ordinary people. Inflicted with the worgen curse, Gilneans have the means to
transform into ferocious beasts and take back the forest from its twisted denizens, who have been led
astray by an orc shaman known as Hagatha the Witch.
In The Witchwood’s exhilarating single-player mode, Monster Hunt, Gilneas’ greatest heroes are called to
cleanse the forest of this darkness. Similar to the Dungeon Run mode from Kobolds & Catacombs, players
will defeat bosses and collect their bounties to build a deck that will keep them alive as they venture
deeper and deeper into The Witchwood.
Monster Hunt will release two weeks after The Witchwood launches.

RING IN THE YEAR OF THE RAVEN

The Witchwood marks the beginning of a brand-new Hearthstone Year: The Year of the Raven! Each
Hearthstone Year ushers in a fresh set of cards for the Standard format, drastically changing the meta and
leading to more exploration and different deck types.

Once the Year of the Raven officially begins, the following card sets will become exclusive to Wild: Whispers
of the Old Gods, One Night in Karazhan, and Mean Streets of Gadgetzan (these card packs can still be
purchased via the Blizzard Shop).

In celebration of the new Hearthstone year, the feisty dryad Lunara will embark on her next journey as a
Druid Hero in Hearthstone! Players who win 10 games in the updated Standard format once the Year of the
Raven has begun will earn Lunara, first daughter of Cenarius!
