To make it easier to get started with Hearthstone, you will receive 235 new and revised basic and classic cards as a free gift from the core set in the year of the Griffin. All 235 cards are now available on the official Hearthstone homepage.

The Hearthstone core set replaces the basic and classic cards in the standard format and consists of a total of 235 cards. These will be available to all players free of charge. All you have to do is level your heroes to level 10 and complete a few achievements with them. Some of the cards in the core set are from older sets, some are new versions of familiar and popular cards, and 29 cards are brand new. In the gallery on playhearthstone.com you can take a look at the 235 new and revised classic and basic maps.

Veterans will find that some classics are missing. For example, we have to get away from Herald of doom and our favorite meme servant Silverback patriarch saying goodbye. Meanwhile, classics like Stone carver customized. The 1/1 of yours now has one more point of attack and has zeal instead of rush. Even the one that was previously highly controversial and later weakened Warsong Leader no longer buffs servants with a rush, but with zeal.

The legendary dragons Malygos, Ysera, Alexstrasza, Nozdormu, Onyxia and Deathwing have been redesigned for the core set. For example, Nozdormu reduces the time for a move to 15 seconds if he is in both decks.

This is how the core set is structured

  • 88 cards from the classic set (54 class cards, 34 neutral cards)
  • 54 cards from the basic set (41 class cards, 13 neutral cards)
  • 55 cards from the wild format (36 class cards, 19 neutral cards)
  • 4 cards out Outland Ruins (4 class cards for demon hunters)
  • 4 cards from the set Initiate the Demon Hunter
  • 1 card from the timeless classics (shadow figure)
  • 29 new cards (20 class cards, 9 neutral cards)
