New mechanic: magic ranks
All classes get new spells with ranks. A spell automatically increases in rank from 5 and 10 mana crystals and thus becomes stronger. It doesn’t matter whether the spells are in your hand or in your deck. Spells now also have their own school of magic. For example, a Frostbolt belongs to the Frost Magic School and Shadowbolt to the Demonic Magic School.
