Rogue Quest Nerf is Live

It now takes 5 minions with the same name to complete. Haven’t really had a chance to talk about this change, what do we think?


New Elementals

With Patch 8.4 also came new elementals. Five cards have joined the ranks of elementals:

Greetings, cross cockerels! I have a simple question for you, although it may take some time to discuss if you're interested.

Hindsight being 20/20, expansion by expansion, what would each of you say was "THE CARD" that defined the meta at each stage of the game?

(For example, I would go on record as saying that Dr Boom defines the G&G era. I'd like to hear what you chickens think.)

Looking forward to The Frozen Throne!

Hello Raging Roosters and Hell Raising Hen,

On episode #217 you were discussing the new class cards and how they could possibly support quests from Un'Goro. If we look at Deathstalker Rexxar, the card does not support quest hunter, and I don't think any of the other hero cards will. If they do decided to allow mages to play spells that weren't from their deck, that just means Mage is on top. If the new Warrior is allowed to summon taunts, then warrior is on top as well. Etc, etc.

Now to the question I have;

Flavor wise, do you think the hero cards would be more flavorful and fun if they read "If you die while this in your hand, activate battlecry set health to 10" or something along those lines.

Thank you for reading.

Good afternoon Clucked Up Crew,

I know last week you talked about the possibility of adding tech promos to the game. I agree that this is a slippery slope in trying to create one off cards that may or may not see play.

However, I agree with the idea of adding promotional cards to the game. They were clearly testing something with the fight promoter giveaway, but that card wasn't 'valuable' in the current meta. Instead, what if they released fight promoter with alternative artwork. Most other card games do alternative artwork with their promos.

As far as earning these. Perhaps some are just given away, while others require the player play the card a certain number of times in a season in order to unlock the promo art. Of course some people will just use decks built around playing that card win or lose, but others may get creative to win games while adding a little questing to the game.

Keep up the great work!
