Friday Update – Frozen Treats

Jun 9, 2017

Welcome to a round up of the week! We have spoilers galore, HEX turns four, and more!


Cool, refreshing Frostheart news has been coming at us like a blizzard this week! First, Ryan Sutherland introduced the all new keywords our teams will bring to the Arena. If you’d like to Illuminate some new strategies or be a Gladiator in the Frost Ring, make sure to head on over. It’ll be a real Boon to your brewing!

Next, Corey Burkhart dropped some ice and covered the ten new gems arriving with Frostheart! Remember, with our latest set, a few gems introduced with Herofall will be retiring as well. Gem rotation is an important part of both refreshing the meta and establishing our upcoming set’s identity, so don’t be thrown for a loupe—check them out now.

And if that weren’t enough, Ryan is back again today to share the 20 champions who will be stepping into the Frost Ring to battle for their greatest desires. Each team has a musician and standard-bearer to help them achieve victory in this epic tournament. Will you back the pious Luminaries, the ferocious Pack, or the creepy Cult? Perhaps the driven Blightbark and fun-loving fae are more your style. Either way, they are revealed today!

Happy Birthday, HEX!

We also celebrated HEX’s 4th birthday this week. Wow, time really does fly when you’re having fun! Make sure to check out our birthday post for a heartfelt letter from the one and only Cory Jones, as well as the continuation of our comic. Plus, to celebrate, we also awarded everyone with some funfetti-filled sleeves. Enjoy!

Cosmic Crown Showdown

We are pleased to announce that the 3rd Cosmic Crown Showdown of 2017 will be on July 15th and 16th. As a reminder, the top 64 players from each ladder will be able to compete for glory, prizes, and a pool of $5,000 cash from the comfort of their own homes! Season 3 ends June 30th, so get your climb on and reach for those stars.

HEX Clash

Speaking of tournaments, the HEX Clash is back once more! Sunday, starting at 8am PT (Worldclock), you have another chance to prove your mettle and walk away with cash and exclusive prizes! Will you end up a proud owner of these fine cosmetics like last week’s winners?

IMPORTANT – If you want these exclusive prizes, time is running out! The HEX Clash will rotate with the release of Frostheart, so your weekends are numbered. These will be some of your last chances at the AAA Herofall cards/sleeves or the Wizard Battleboard, so make every tournament count!

There will be Blood

Finally, it wouldn’t be spoiler season without a little something extra to spice things up. As some of you may already know, we will be releasing the Dragon’s Blood starter deck we promised backers in the Kickstarter with the Frostheart update. Here is your first sneak peak at part of that deck:

Uruunaz the Merciless AATome of Uruunaz
Scion of Uruunaz

See you on the Battlefield!
