Hello, Wowhead! Over on Hearthstone Top Decks
we’re about to be launching into the Rastakhan’s Rumble expansion which is
the third and final expansion of the year. If you haven’t been playing much
Hearthstone or following along, we thought it’d be a good idea to get you
up to speed!
If you want to get prepared for launch, we have a
Rastakhan’s Rumble Survival Guide
that lists the launch times as well as some important details regarding the
Rastakhan’s Rumble follows the once-a-generation event that bears the name
of King Rastakhan. Nine teams have assembled with their patron Primal Loa
to battle it out to be pronounced victor and champion of the Rumble! There
will be 135 new cards added with the new expansion which should make for
some new and interesting new decks. The expansion launches on December 4 th, 2018!
With just about every expansion we get a new keyword and this one is no
different! This time we’re getting OVERKILL, which means when you kill a
minion and deal more damage than it has health you will trigger a bonus
There are 12 cards in total that utilize this new mechanic including the
Along with the new keyword, we are getting some strong legendaries that act
as mascots for each class/team in the Rumble. These powerful Loa also come
with a synergistic spirit that will help your deck to victory! Here’s a
look at the Rogue classes Loa and Spirit:
With all these new and powerful cards being released, they have surely
unlocked some new and interesting decks. We’ve been compiling a list of
these potential new archetypes and have gone into detail about their
origins and how they are setup to succeed in the new expansion! We’re also
including some links to currently popular archetypes, so you can get a
sense of where the classes are at currently.
Once the expansion releases, we’ll be gathering up
Rastakhan’s Rumble Decks
and narrowing down the top lists in our
Best Rastakhan’s Rumble Decks post
Even if you aren’t a big fan of Hearthstone and don’t want to buy another
pack or sink another cent into it, there’s always the free single-player
content. This stuff has been quite good lately, and if you haven’t tried
it, it’s worth taking a look.
In this Roguelike content, you will fight through different bosses and add
cards to your deck after every victory. The cards you get to collect, and
the bosses you face are usually different each time you start a new game!
This leads to a lot of different scenarios and quite a bit of replay value.
So, even if you don’t want to invest in the game, you can still enjoy the
new expansion! Rumble Run will be released a bit later, you’ll be able to
play it on December 13th, 2018. If you want to learn more about
this mode, check out our
Rumble Run Guide
That’s it from us at Hearthstone Top Decks, thanks for reading and we hope
to see you in the tavern!
I need to rebuild my Millstone Rogue deck with some of these new cards. (yes, that's a callback to MTG).
Wild for sure. I'm still working on my standard deck. And to be clear, the win condition is to kill your opponent by running them out of cards, NOT by attacking them. I've seen another deck construct out there called a Mill Druid, that works in a VERY similar way.
