Themed around the haunted city of Gilneas, players will be able to acquire 135 brand new cards in order to fight off the spirits of the Witchwood. This will allow us to use a card that's already been played, no matter how many times it's been used before.
Second, the devs reveal neutral Legendary minion, Genn Greymane, whose Battlecry reduces the cost of the player's Hero Power to one mana, provided all the cards in their deck and hand are even-numbered-cost cards. In other words, these will enable new gimmicky decks that may or may not pan out, but people similarly underestimated cards like Razakus that ended up dominating the meta for awhile.
The lovably goofy reveal trailer ended with a glimpse, but only a glimpse, at a new Warlock Hero card. Apparently a minion with "Echo" can be played multiple times in the same turn. Rush, much like Charge, lets a minion attack immediately, but only against other minions.More news: Tim Berners-Lee talks weaponization and big tech
What do you think, are you excited for the new DLC?
As per usual, the announcement trailer is fun and silly.
The Witchwood will also see the addition of the Monster Hunt mode, which is similar to the Dungeon Run from Kobolds & Catacombs. Blizzard will release more details on Monster Hunts in the weeks to come.

The expansion's new Monster Hunt mode is similar to the Dungeon Run from Kobolds & Catacombs in that it pits players against a series of eight increasingly hard encounters leading into a big boss fight. "After you beat an encounter, you choose loot to improve your Monster Hunt deck".
Curious players can keep up with the now announced cards here.
There will be four new heroes, each with their own hero power.
