Hearthstone: 6 new cards from the new 'Witchwood' expansion

The new Hearthstone Witchwood expansion arrives in April

Blizzard announced newest Hearthstone expansion 'The Witchwood, ' only moments ago.

The expansion will also add a new Monster Hunt mode to the action, similar to Kobolds & Catacombs' Dungeon Run, that challenges players with a series of eight increasingly hard encounters leading into a big boss fight.

There was a seventh card teased, but the camera was dropped before it could fully be revealed.

One new card "Azalina Southief" copies your opponent's hand.

Genn Greymane checks your deck and if you have "even cost cards", all costs will be reduced to 1. The "Start of Game" cards aren't necessary "new" mechanics, but do show that the Hearthstone team is continuing the trend of rewarding specific deck-building decisions.

(3) Phantom Militia (2/4): Echo.

Pumpkin Peasant provides Life Steal.

(4) Militia Commander (2/5): Rush.

Ben Brode revealed another card at the end of his adventure, Hagatha The Witch, but all we can see is that she's a Shaman Legendary that costs 8 mana. Unstable Evolution from Journey To Un'Goro already uses this ability, and according to lead developer Mike Donais on reddit, the card's text will be changed. Lastly, there's "Rush", which means a minion can immediately attack other minions.

On top of all of that, there's a new single-player mode called Monster Hunt. Like Dungeon Run, you'll pick from one of three groups of cards, with powerful spells and artifacts thrown in every few encounters.

Hearthstone: The Witchwood is available for pre-purchase now, with a bonus 20 packs and "In a Dark Wood" card back on the table for people who pony up early. Tell us in the comments.
