Journey to Un’Goro: In-Depth Card Guides

I am happy to reveal that I recently teamed up with Hearthhead to take a more in-depth look at many of the cards from Hearthstone’s Journey to Un’Goro expansion.

I have always been interested in the nitty-gritty details behind Hearthstone cards, but this information is difficult to find, and sometimes even difficult to calculate yourself, as so many details are not available in the game itself. Therefore, I set out on a journey with Hearthhead to find out just how the cards work. I’m sure there is still more to uncover, but we were at least partially successful.

Answering Tokens with Jade Druid: Wild Pyromancer or Starfall?

While the traditional Jade Druid core is holding strong as evidenced by its solid performance at Dreamhack Summer Hearthstone Grand Prix, alternative builds have also gained some ground recently.

With Evolve Shaman and Aggro Druid being such prevalent threats to Jade Druid, several players have looked for an answer to token boards. The most common answer right now is the inclusion of Wild Pyromancer. But what about Starfall?

Journey to Un’Goro: the 12 best competitive common cards

Hearthstone’s Journey to Un’Goro expansion with its diverse metagame has been the most expensive expansion to the game if you want to experience the wide variety of competitive decks that currently exist.

This fact makes it easy to overlook another interesting fact: Journey to Un’Goro also brought a large number of very good common cards to the game, and building competitive budget decks has never been easier.

In this post, I take a look at 12 great competitive common cards from the latest expansion.

Malkorok in Journey to Un’Goro

With the Standard rotation that took place together with Hearthstone’s Journey to Un’Goro expansion launch, there are some old cards that warrant a re-examination as the pool of cards they draw from for their effect has changed. One such card is Malkorok.

The Warrior class legendary introduced in Whispers of the Old Gods expansion, Malkorok initially saw play in Tempo Warrior, but fell out of fashion as midrange Warrior builds were increasingly centered around dragons.

Furthermore, there was a boogieman in the closet: Cursed Blade, a weapon that could cause you to lose the game, and famously did even in top-level LAN tournaments, such as at Dreamhack Austin 2016 (Kitkatz’s Tempo Warrior vs Reynad’s Aggro Shaman).

There is some good news for Malkorok in Un’Goro though: Dragon Warrior is gone from Standard, and so is Cursed Blade – no more losing the game just because you equip a random weapon!

So, is Malkorok now good enough to see play again?
