Yeah that reveal was crazy!
I feel like Escape is more powerful than Tradeable tho :thinking:
Cosmic14 (4)3 weeks ago
Just want to point out: the Allience epansion somehow managed to make the reverse of the Escape keyword with Tradable.

This is really high quality! I honestly could believe this to be an actual expansion!
Btw, how did you make the custom set icon ?

Escape from Elwynn CINEMATIC TRAILER:
petebar (4.1)9 months ago
Agghh!! I'll be waiting your next expansion as if i'm waiting for an ingame one. So excited, hope it comes out soon and can't wait to see it. Good work!
Gothe (4.2)9 months ago
Man, @King Kuba, I'd love to help out with this next project but i don't want to cramp your style (and im sure you like doing it by yourself too). Best of luck on it!

Both Adventure Mode (Garfang's Return) and Gnolls in Battlegrounds are done! You can find them in the Gallery!

@k1ll3rm0mJr - They are! Each class has a Fugitive; a strong Escape minion which could be useful not only in Escape decks, but other ones as well, often working as finishers or game saviors :reno:
k1ll3rm0mJr 10 months ago
Aren't the Key-mechanics in this expansion Gnolls, Escape and Fugitives?
DustenStein (4.1)10 months ago
You don't know how much I'd give to see the angry and demonic Demon Hunters run around with small tiny cute Murlocs.

most awesome thing out of this is Murky. awesome idea

After testing, @DustenStein has come across the ONE SENTENCE that somehow ruins Hearthcards.
DustenStein (4.1)10 months ago
eys only affect 4-5 classes and they count
Nichodemons (4)10 months ago
I wouldn't say priest secrets is a key mechanic since it only affects one class and rogue secrets were never a key mechanic
DustenStein (4.1)10 months ago
And I think this does have three mechanics:
Escape and
Priest Secrets
DustenStein (4.1)10 months ago
Scholomance has Studies, Dual-Class and Spellburst.
Outlands has Prime minions, Dormant minions and Demon Hunter
Descent of Dragons has Galakrond, Sidequests and Invoke (which the website for some reason lists separate from Galakrond)
Kapiork 10 months ago
@Lucious I think it's stuff like Studies from Scholomance, or Plagues from Uldum.
Lucious (4)10 months ago
Now I'm interested, what do you mean "key mechanics"? In a regular expansion the new keyword is definitely one, but as for the other 2 what classifies them to be key? Do you mind giving an example?
Nichodemons (4)10 months ago
This is one of the better Expansions out there, but still needs some more. For example it is missing some more key-mechanics. Like every expansion has atleast 3 key mechanics, and I can only count 2 key mechanics in this, that being Gnolls and Escape keyword. And I don't think Gnolls makes that much sense. Don't know how the effect triggers nor think it fits with Gnolls characteristicks. But overall its one of the better custom expansions out there

@GoodKraken - Thank you :finleySmile:
@k1ll3rm0mJr - Don't know if 3 cards isn't too much, but that's an interesting idea! :reno:
k1ll3rm0mJr 11 months ago
Made one of my own fitting the Warlock theme in this expansion. Hope you like it :)
GoodKraken 11 months ago
This is brilliant and I love it. The keyword is cool too.
King Kuba (4) (creator)11 months ago
All weapons are now updated to the new weapon template! You can see all 10 of them in the Set Gallery!
King Kuba (4) (creator)11 months ago
@GoodKraken Glad to see some fan creations of this fan creation, although this one seems too weak to be played, maybe 3 mana?
GoodKraken 11 months ago
Made a gnoll myself. Couldn't find the expansion logo you used though, so made it classic.

Cool! Was wondering if it'd be Escape or Gnolls.

Dang Kuba, just realized you had teasers for additional content at the bottom.

Doom Lord Kazzak could be 10 mana, just so you can't hero power the same turn.

photoshop probably.

How did you make the expansion logo?
DragonicDoom (3.7)1 year ago
Now that I've finally looked at all the cards I can say I'm thoroughly impressed! I was originally a little scared that the Escape mechanic wouldn't workout while looking at the class cards, but the Neutral cards definitely save it, feels like a solid yet balanced mechanic.

The Gnolls have a very well defined theme, and feel like they could really fit into Hearthstone as a more permanent addition than Elementals were. While we still get Elementals they often lack they're signature "last turn" effects, while Gnolls feel like they could keep this unique identity while fitting into other archetypes. I for one would love to put these Gnolls into Taunt Warrior for example.

Only 2 things I'd change are Hunter and Mage, and their both very minor. 1) Give a Hunter its own Spell Damage minion alongside the weapon, just to give it some more consistency. 2) Change Reconstruction. I love the card, I'm just not a big fan of the randomness. I get its meant to be the downside of 3 mana draw 3 minions, but I feel like it could be tweaked to make it a little more interesting. Maybe it could turn them into minions of the same cost as the spells, so you can build your deck in a way to improve your chances of getting specific minions? Either way if there was any fan expansion I'd want to be made official, its this one! Outstanding work mate!
King Kuba (4) (creator)1 year ago
Update 1.2: Now EVERY card of the expansion is there, which makes this post officialy the biggest card on Hearthcards in terms of tokens added.

Also, two major updates are coming soon!
King Kuba (4) (creator)1 year ago
Oh, and a quick update!
ALL THE CARDS ARE HERE (except 12 of them cause I have a bug and I can't generate more cards, only the "" link. Does anyone know to repair this?)

Greetings, Creators! :reno:
Thank you for the appreciation and the 2nd place on the intire Hearthcards! I have a huge dream to change history and become the new #1 after 18 months of Jungle Duel's reigns. Its up to you tho! Huge thanks for all the 5/5's then :tinyfin:

Also, I'd like to answer your questions :bob:

1/4 was meant to be Goldshire Guard, which I renamed today - It was just en error. Regarding the link, try to wait a while, or eventually search the expansion in a list of other sets and classes. Now most of the cards are here too, just in case.

Thank you! All visuals except the pack are just my photoshopping. Escape from Elwynn's logo was 100% my concept and my execution!

Thank you too, There was a lot of passion put into this! Trees take the first plan and there are two Stormwind castle's towers behind, just like in World of Warcraft. Each expansion's logo has some sort of glowing contour. It made sense to me that to locate refugees, guards use lighthouses from their towers. That's why the lights are white and spreading everywhere. Then, I connected the Alliance crest to recolored Hearthstone's spiked circle logo-thing, added text from cooltext, some lights and shadows and that's it. It's a collage of images I find by searching them with specific tags like ART, DRAWING, PAINTING, FANART, ARTWORK etc. and adjusting them to my need.

Mah bro Garfang is indeed a Hunter!
Gothe (4.2)1 year ago
@Ymer oh how the greats have fallen
Marleon (4)1 year ago
And I presume Garfang is a Hunter Hero, right? The color and 'to HUNT' would probably mean that
Ymer 1 year ago
@Gothe Candle Elemental is so obscure now it's actually called Candle Sprite, not Candle Elemental.
Gothe (4.2)1 year ago
Man, people are talking about how this beat Brode (which is super impressive and it will likely stay up or around there. Don't get me wrong, this deserves it) but, and I may be dating myself, I remember when it was impressive to beat Candle Elemental. Now that card's just another 4.2 pushed to the second page. Ah how the times have changed.
TheFriendlyEnemy (3.8)1 year ago
@King Kuba Nice expansion! Probably one of the most thematic sets I've seen, evidently made by someone with a solid knowledge of set design. There are clear overarching mechanical themes and the Gnoll tribe is focused and has a distinct identity.

A few things stuck out to me in terms of wording, such as Shadowed Mind (lowercase "w") and Shovelfin (in passive voice), and "Sheep" is its own plural. Ghnoull using "this turn before" unlike the other gnolls is somewhat confusing, too.

Your Paladin set doesn't feel very mechanically cohesive. You'd never want to play Light Display since it could pull your Goldtooth, and Giant of Greed is stronger when you have lots of one rarity, unlike the others. This archetype also discourages running Basic cards, but you have a Goldshire Footman archetype running parallel.

The Escape keyword is built up well. The cards suit the kind of playstyle that looks very fun, and the keyword itself is interesting, has a wide design space and promotes player agency. Escape Rogue in particular would be a fun Miracle variant with Bazil Thredd as a finisher.

The graphic design work is impeccable, too. Creating your own cinematic as well shows the effort you've put into this. Overall an incredible set, sorry for the long critique. If you want to discuss more about this I'm TheFriendlyEnemy#9524 on the /r/CustomHearthstone Discord channel.

Poondaedalin (4)1 year ago
Ymer 1 year ago
I guess. But 99.2% of cards don't even get a chance to get on the front 10 pages. This is still really impressive
Shoemanband (4)1 year ago
@Ymer Rating is an average of votes, not cumulative. Getting the top spot in 1 day isn't special because there's a low amount of votes. If it stays at the top for a month, that would be impressive.

No, this is literally the best card on the entire site IN 1 DAY! GOLDEN LEGENDARY!

Did you create the pack and expansion design images yourself? Because they look really good.
Cosmic14 (4)1 year ago
Woah. This is cool.
Stevethebarbarian (3.8)1 year ago
Replace Silverback? That feels pretty tone-deaf. Silverback is an important part of the culture of Hearthstone.

Also neither link seems to work for me, just takes me to the class creator menu.

Quick question: Is War of Elwynn meant to summon the 1/2 Goldshire Footman or the new 1/4 one you've made with the same name?
