Hearthstone Patch Notes

Here are the full Hearthstone patch notes as found on the official Hearthstone blog.

Game Mechanics Updates

  • Continued updates to game event timing to make card interactions more intuitive. Read our previous Game Mechanics Updates blog for more insight!
  • Counterspell beats whenever and after triggers.
  • Summon and Play triggers are now evaluated using their in-hand stats before they are affected by board modifiers and their Battlecry.
    • Ex. Playing Faceless Manipulator targeting a 5-attack minion will no longer advance Jungle Giants. It will be considered a 3/3.
  • Minions that enter the battlefield without being played from hand will have any (Whenever or After) summon triggers evaluated before board modifiers are applied.
    • Ex. If Azure Drake is pulled onto the battlefield adjacent to Dire Wolf Alpha, it will no longer advance Jungle Giants.
  • Choose One minions that Transform now consider their transformation effects before entering play.

Arena Updates

  • Added several new pick “buckets” for non-Legendary cards and two for Legendary cards.
  • The new buckets are halfway in power between the existing buckets, and they’re intended to create more varied choices when drafting an Arena deck.
  • The very strongest and very weakest cards do not appear in these new buckets, so those cards will appear as picks about half as frequently as they did previously.

Evil Twin Greetings

  • When players with the same hero (except Death Knights) greet each other, new emotes will play!

Added the following card backs:

  • Back in Blue – Acquired from winning five games in Ranked Play, June 2018.
