New mechanics and keywords
The expansion also brought other novelties, they are lackeys (Servants), spells (Stratagems), keywords (Double Spell). In addition, a set of forbidden, omega, treasures, and repeatable cards are back.
Year of the Dragon
The update marks the farewell of the Mammoth Year and the arrival of the Year of the Dragon. Expansions such as Un’Goro’s Journey, Ice Throne Knights, and Kobolds & Catacombs are no longer available in packs of cards and their cards have come out of Standard game mode.
The Arena has also undergone some changes. Now, when building their decks in this mode, players can use cards from the following sets: Basic, Classic, Naxxramas, Whispers of the Ancient Gods, Gangs of Geringontzan, Witchwood, and Rise of the Shadows.
There is a new solo adventure scheduled for May. In all, there will be five chapters and the first one will be free. However, the other four could be unlocked for 700 gold each or purchased in a $ 19.99 package (about $ 77). At the end of a chapter, the player gains three packs of Shadow Ascension cards, plus the final reward for completing all five chapters.
