    Ok, new series of 7 cards. Cheap common cards again.

    Comments on the cards:

    Raptor Mount: I hesitate to nerf this before since it's a face deck card. Isn't +2/+2 and Charge too much ? I like the Charge effect but maybe +2 Attack or +1/+1 is better. Especially since Raptor Mount is a decent 1-cost minion even when the joust is lost.

    Hemet's Trainee: Face counter... Which paradoxically would also benefit face decks themselves. It only works on beasts so it's not directly anti face but we all know which class is most likely to play face, right ?

    Blood Snake: A 1-cost 3/3, but which prevents other weak minions to be played during the few next turns. Great to trigger Stress/Enrage effects though.

    Frogomancer: A Frog-themed card that destroys frogs like Saltscale Hunter. I got the inspiration from a quest in Howling Fjord in WoW, during which a troll locates a ship by using a Frog (although the frog isn't actually killed).

    Troll Monk: Counter-attack again, counts as a 2/2 for the opponent so they would avoid trading with it.

    Orc Peon: I know, this is not a troll or troll-related card, but no expansion has been 100% in line with its main theme until now right ? Basically a free 2/1... if you don't count the cost of the card/hero power you use to damage this (and you can't use Blood Serpent since it deals 2 damage). Again, I hesitate to buff this. Wouldn't 3 base Health and/or an 'Enrage: +3 Attack' be better ? Or maybe Charge so that it's still useful after turn 1 ?

    Human Peasant: 'More work ?' The Orc Peon counterpart. A 0/4 with no abilities. The most obvious combo I see for this is for a priest to Inner Fire it on turn 2. That would make it, on turn 2, a 4/4 ready to attack, in addition to a potential 1-cost minion also played during turn 1, and also ready to attack. The priest would also have 1 mana crystal left for the turn. An other combo would be to give him taunt so it would basically be a free Shieldbearer.

    I noticed it only after having finished the card, but I have created a pattern of ex-WC3 worker units being 0-cost minions in HS (the Wisp used to be the night elf worker unit).

     

     EDIT : How do I modify the title of my thread by the way ?

    I couldn't find a better name for the stress mechanic, and I think keywords are simple to learn. Keywords like Windfury are not very explicit either. Also yes it is already in the game but I made it more important. Deathrattle too already existed before Naxx after all.

    I made some text changes on two cards (gameplay is not affected). I will post a new set of cards this afternoon.

    I hesitated to make it a Beast, but I fear this will benefit hunters too much.

    I also hesitated to make it a murloc instead. 

    And yes Zul'jin is in lol.

    Troll Expansion - 122 Collectible cards, 28 Uncollectible

     

    I've decided to make a troll expansion, because who doesn't like trolls ? (What do you mean 'I don't' ?)

    At the beginning I wanted to make only 100 cards, but I was too inspired and I ended up making a set the size of GvG. (That's what happen when you find awesome artworks and want to make a card out of them).

    All cards are ready to show, but I will only show them progressively because I don't want to overwhelm readers with cards (and uploading 123 cards in one time is boring).

    My expansion introduces 2 new keywords:

    'Stress: X' : Whenever this minion takes damage, do X. This is basically an Enrage that doesn't trigger only once. For example, if this was a real keyword, the card text would be ' Stress: +3 Attack.' for Gurubashi Berserker and ' Stress: Draw a card.' for Acolyte of Pain.

    'Counter-attack +X': When this minion is attacked, deal X damage to the attacking minion/hero in addition to the card's attack. Very effective against face decks when combined with Taunt.

    The general themes of my expansion :
    - Stress/Enrage effects (because this is a troll expansion)
    - Transform effects (in particular transformations to Frogs, although not the 0/1 Taunt Frog from Hex)
    - Some anti-face cards
    - A limitation of the number and importance of RNG effects. I think that the last two expansions have too many RNG. That does not mean there are no RNG cards in my set, they are just less important.


    Some remarks :

    - I am not a native english speaker so if you see any grammatical/spelling mistake in my cards or posts, tell me !
    - For some cards I struggled to find an adequate art (for some I took some WoW screenshots, non-WoW arts or even real-life photos), so don't be surprised if some card arts are ugly or a bit odd for the card.
    - I am aware that, as it is, an expansion with lots of Enrage/Stress effects would clearly give an advantage to mages and warriors, so I tried to include some cards capable of dealing damage to our own minions.

    Without further ado, here are my first cards :


    Neutral Cards (69 cards)


    Neutral Common (32 cards)

    <= 0-2 mana (17 cards)

    >= 3 mana or more (14 cards)

     

    Neutral Rare (16 cards)

    Neutral Epic (12 cards)

    Neutral Legendary (9 cards)

    I initially wanted to put "[...] are returned to your hand instead" but I guess this would be too advantageous for face hunts.
