The subsequent Hearthstone mini-set has been revealed as Maw and Dysfunction (opens in new tab), a group of 35 playing cards that includes the return of Sylvanas, who hasn’t been a playable card in Normal since her authentic incarnation was despatched to the Corridor of Fame (opens in new tab) in 2017. This time round probably the most notorious of the Windrunner sisters “has been introduced earlier than the Jailer to reply for her crimes.”
The mini-set will embrace 35 new playing cards—16 widespread, 14 uncommon, one epic, and 4 legendary—which may be present in Homicide at Fort Nathria card packs when Maw and Dysfunction goes dwell on September 27. For individuals who’d reasonably not go at it piecemeal, the total mini-set (with 66 playing cards in whole: one copy of every legendary card and two copies of all the remainder) may also be accessible for buy in two editions: A standard version accessible in-game for two,000 Gold or 1,500 Runestones, and an All-Golden model which may be had for $70 or 7,000 Runestones.
Blizzard did not share too many particulars on the mini-set, however so far as I could make out, Sylvanas stands accused of perpetrating the crimes stemming from the principle Homicide at Fort Nathria set. That is apparently a TWIST. Zovaal, (that is the Jailer), will preside over the case.
“Revendreth was shocked when it was revealed that the decide to supervise the Sylvanas Anima Drought Trial was Zovaal himself,” an overwrought (and, to be clear, completely faux) newspaper article claimed. “To those that questioned how one man may be each Decide and Jailer, Zovaal’s lengthy historical past of putting individuals of their afterlives was introduced up.
“Nevertheless, when Zovaal’s lengthy historical past of combating warriors and inflicting chaos within the Shadowlands was introduced up, Zovaal glowered and what, we shut up. The Judger—er, the Jailer—will reply such questions as, ‘What the heck occurred right here,’ and ‘Why not placed on a shirt dagnab it?'”
Clearly this is not going to be probably the most severe trial of the century, however there may be historical past between Zovaal and Sylvanas that goes approach past Hearthstone: The 2 have been allied for a time (opens in new tab) and introduced chaos to the Shadowlands, till Sylvanas realized that Zovaal’s motives weren’t what he claimed and turned in opposition to him.
Talking of Sylvanas, here is her card. It has the very best Infuse requirement thus far at 7, however her impact is robust whether or not it has been juiced up or not. When it comes to taste, it additionally performs into what the OG model did. We’ll should see whether or not it turns into a equally ubiquitous inclusion.

And here is the Jailer, who hasn’t appeared in Hearthstone beforehand. His impact, which destroys your personal deck however renders your remaining minions Immune, is clearly insane and has the potential to finish loads of video games. There’s counterplay although. A considered Whirlpool or Twisting Nether will nonetheless have the ability to take away the whole board, regardless of the Immune tag.

Forward of the launch of Maw and Dysfunction (on September 27, bear in mind), playing cards from the set will proceed to be revealed on the Hearthstone Twitter account.
