Above Spider Bomb goes

Was the reveal of an all-new Hearthstone expansion not enough for today? The evil goblin Dr. Boom, previously tormenting players is caught in between dimensions and has created a laboratory with all kinds of insane experiments from within The Netherstorm. The Boomsday Project is a way for Dr. Boom to vent his anger at other races for disturbing him during his scientific experiments (which involves making bombs, mostly). It's a Mech-exclusive keyword "that allows players to merge Mech minions, combining their attack, health, and abilities", Blizzard says.

Joining Magnetic are Projects; an old mechanic with a new name.

How could this change the way you play?

Meanwhile, Omega cards will have extra powers if you play them when you have 10 mana crystals, ensuring that you may want to hold them until you're late in a game. It seems like Blizzard missed the good old Big Druid days.

For the first time ever, each class will be getting a legendary spell card - you can see the Rogue's in the gallery above. And yes, to some degree that's correct. Players will marvel at the discovery of nine new, immensely powerful Legendary Spells! As for spells, a new effect called "Project" will come into play, which gives players a mutually beneficial increase in mana crystals and a project that'll help you out when your opponent plays a spell card. Fair and square, right?
