All The New Hearthstone Cards From "Rise Of Shadows" Expansion

Hearthstone "Rise of Shadows" Cards
The next expansion for Hearthstone, Rise of Shadows, is fast approaching. The neew expansion will add 135 cards when it drops on April 9, along with new mechanics and more. This time the Arch-Thief Rafaam has gathered a cabal of villains for a daring heist, in the first entry of a planned ongoing story for the Year of the Dragon.
The villains are bringing their Lackeys, 1/1 token minions with specialized Battlecries, and Schemes, spells that grow more powerful the longer you hold them. The crime-fighters the Defenders of Dalaran fight back with Twinspells, a new keyword that gives you back another copy of a spell once you've played it.
Starting on April 5, players can login to receive a free Legendary card from the set that will be playable immediately, before the April 9 launch date. This will be Hearthstone's first simultaneous global launch, kicking off at 10 AM PT / 5 PM GMT / 1 AM CST.
Roughly a month after the expansion launches, the Rise of Shadows single-player campaign will arrive. The first chapter will be free, and subsequent chapters will cost 700 gold apiece. You can buy the full bundle for $20.
Two pre-release bundles are still available for just a little while longer. The $50 bundle includes 50 packs, a card back, and a Legendary card. A separate $80 "Mega Bundle" includes 80 packs, the card back, a Golden Legendary, and the Madam Lazul Priest Hero. The store will also offer a "Shadow Bundle" for the first week of the expansion launch with nine packs and an Arena ticket for $10.
