148 - Velen's Chosen: Mo Mechs, Mo Problems
This week the chosen have to break down for you a new set of adjustments within the game coming up with tribe adjustments as well as take a look at our second week of new cards! Buckle up for this week’s episode brought to you by Jamie S, the best sponsor in the biz.
- Fire Festival is on! Get your double gold quests in
- New card changes and clarifications to how they work:
- Ghostly Charger is losing the Beast tribe.
- Ixlid, Fungal Lord is losing the Elemental tribe.
- Shadowboxer will now only deal damage when a minion is healed, not any character.
- Shifter Zerus, Molten Blade, and Shifting Scroll now all lose enchantments when they transform.
- Voodoo Doll's curse is removed on a minion if it transforms.
- Voodoo Doll's curse is also removed if Voodoo Doll itself is silenced or the minion with the curse is silenced.
- Copied cards will get all enchantments the original card has unless the card is in the graveyard.
- August 4th and 5th, Blizzard is running some Fireside Gathering events designated as a pre-release event. Attending an event allows you to open your Hearthstone packs early and play with your cards in a special Fireside Brawl against other players at the event.
The special brawl is only available at Fireside Gatherings.
You can only use cards in the brawl that you open from your own card packs.
No cards can be disenchanted or crafted until the expansion launches.

Ethereals & the Consortium
Nexus-Champion Saraad, Arch-Thief Rafaam, and Ethereal Peddler, are examples of Ethereal cards in Hearthstone.
Their homeworld was called K’aresh but it was destroyed by Dimensius the All-Devouring a powerful Void Lord
Due to the powerful arcane energies emanating from the gateways that Dimensius opened around their planet to destroy it, the Ethereals’ bodies were changed into pure energy
They use enchanted bandages to hold their forms
The change enhanced their minds and magical abilities
They are much like the Goblins with their Trade Princes
They are liars and scoundrels and thieves who will stop at nothing to pursue their aims
They transmogrify and sell void storage and reforge items all for a nominal fee
