Looks like it’s time to be even more conniving in Heartstone, as Blizzard announces RISE OF SHADOWS. As they say, it’s “good to be bad”, and RISE OF SHADOWS adds 135 diabolical new cards in this latest expansion.

Pre-purchase a 50-pack bundle and receive the Jewel of Lazul card back and a random Legendary; nab the 80-pack Mega Bundle and get the card back, a random golden Legendary, and the Madam Lazul Priest Hero—or purchase both and get it all

After suffering defeat at the hands of the League of Explorers, Arch-Thief Rafaam realized that his designs on Azeroth would require more roguery than he alone could muster. In the years since, he has dwelled in the shadows, recruiting the greatest antagonists Hearthstone has ever seen to join the League of E.V.I.L.—a veritable supergroup of villains from previous Hearthstone sets, including King Togwaggle, Madam Lazul, the irrepressible Dr. Boom, and Hagatha the Witch. In Rise of Shadows, these ne’er-do-wells will once again act on their nefarious intentions, aided by Hearthstone players looking to get their hands dirty.

In addition to their promising player cohort, the League of E.V.I.L. also has Lackeys to boss around—1/1 minions with a variety of diabolical Battlecries. These low-level operatives will be crucial in unleashing the League’s sinister Schemes: new Spells that grow in power each turn they’re in a player’s hand. As if brains and brawn weren’t enough, their bag of tricks also includes callback cards that feature effects that pay homage to the Hearthstone sets that the League of E.V.I.L.’s masterminds hail from, giving players access to crafty new strategies.
