The announcement is here! Three Classic cards will depart the Standard format when the next Hearthstone expansion arrives in spring: Ice Block, Coldlight Oracle, and Molten Giant.
The expansion also triggers the annual set rotation, where Whispers of the Old Gods, One Night in Karazhan, and Mean Streets of Gadgetzan will rotate out into Wild.
In this post, I take a look at the Hall of Fame cards and what their departure means for the meta. Of course, the new expansion will bring along new cards, so any predictions are not final.
