Ashes of Outland: Cards List, Release Date, & Expansion Details
Hearthstone's 1st expansion in the Year of the Phoenix is Ashes of Outland! The expansion launched on April 7, 2020.
A return through the Dark Portal to the shadowed world of Outland, the beloved scene of the World of Warcraft expansion The Burning Crusade. We will get to meet familiar places and familiar faces, but not all is as it was. There is a new threat. The Rusted Legion has conquered Outland and the denizens now scavenge to survive in the ashes of their broken world.
The Year of the Phoenix came with a lot of excitement from the Hearthstone community. Many changes were made, including a first for Hearthstone -- a new class! We've recapped everything there was to know about the expansion and our new Hero: the Demon Hunter.

HearthPwn: What made this expansion theme so compelling? What made it cool over other things you discussed?
Dean: The first thing we did obviously was we chose to have a new class and chose Illidan for that. So then we kind of had to do something that’s loosely related to Illidan.
In Hearthstone it’s a little bit easier to take a more broad location and take all of Outland and put a little bit of Hearthstone spin on it. It’s still Warcraft universe, still very much Outland, still going to see a lot of the places you remember if you played in the Burning Crusade expansion in World of Warcraft.
Ashes of Outland introduced 135 new cards, including 15 cards for the brand new Demon Hunter class, as well as Primes, and Imprisoned Demons! See the full list of revealed cards below.

Ashes of Outland saw the introduction of the 10th Class to Hearthstone: Demon Hunter. We have made a thorough breakdown of the class and it’s known cards in this separate article. Here are some cards coming with the expansion for this new class:
Primes are new, special legendaries introduced in Ashes of Outland for all the original 9 Classes, but not for Demon Hunter. They all work in the same way: they have a base version, which when killed returns as a stronger version to your deck, to be drawn again and played again. The upgraded Prime minions have some spectacular effects, as you can see below:
HearthPwn: What was the Inspiration behind the Primes, the new Legendaries that you introduce with Ashes of Outland?
Dean: Primes are characters where you wonder “What would it be like if they came back?” and they come back in bigger, better, more awesome versions after they were defeated the first time.
What would Outland be without some Demons? These particular Demons are called “Imprisoned Demons” because when you play them they stay dormant on the battlefield for 2 turns. During this time no one can interact with them, neither you nor your opponent.
When they finally awaken, they unleash an awesome effect. Imprisoned Demons can be tricky to play with as you will spend mana on a turn that only pays off later, but it promotes strategy and turn planning and has some amazing payoffs as you can see below:
