    I agreee and get where you're coming from

    I really wanted one of the Warlock legendaries to be either Kil’Jaeden or Archimonde. The prime Legendary for Warlock has not been revealed yet, but I seriously doubt it’s going to be one of them :( I’m crossing my fingers that it’s not something gimmicky or a ton of randomness or I’ll feel like Blizzard missed a huge opportunity 

     

     Honestly they're important enough to be neutral legendaries. Also, isn't the lore of the expansion about Mecha-Jaraxxus trying to revive the Burning Legion? if that's the case that means the original Legion died, and I guess that then Kil'Jaeden and Archimonde went down with it.

    Also now that @phryu mentioned George and Karl I imagine them lost in Outland. That could've been fun tbh.

    I agree with you, A'dal would've been cool because right now there aren't naruus in Hearthstone :/

    That and the fact that A'dal Prime had potential :P

    Also, one of the cards is called hand of A'dal, maybe he'll be a Neutral Legendary? I hope so.

    EDIT: Not a WoW lor expert, but aren't all legendary primes dead in canon? That would make sense in flavor theme due to them being revived, and a reason why A'dal is not a primer legendary.

     

    EDIT 2: Nevermind, Msshi'fn is also alive. You've got no excuses here, Blizzard.

    Is there a named/relevant paladin in BC?

     Not sure, but there are naarus. They are way more interesting/refreshing that a random murloc that's kinda slow to play with murlocs (I know, it can be played in other archetypes but still).

    Thanks @Megameth for the kind words! I've seen you are also doing an ocean expansion, and it also looks great! About the resourceful, the only cards that copy old cards are resourceful shot and faceless. I honestly don't think Shot is a problem (deadly shot isn't used anyway), but I'll try to balance faceless a bit.

    Also, I've updated the post a bit with the wing 3 and 5 showcase cards.

    posted a message on [Expansion Competition] The Treasures of VanCleef

    For those who don't know, we've been having a bigger comp during those last 2 months. After a lot of work, I proudly present:

     

    The Treasures of VanCleef

    "Tales of wonder, whispers the sea. Tales of plunder, robbery and thieves! Tales about pirates, burly and mean! And among them a Rogue engineer. Leading the Defias, the fearsome VanCleef! But as every reign of terror, condemned to fall. As with every failure, gold left behind. So who's the brave, who'll claim the treasure? Pirates from all nations, will raid Ironclad! But most of them are fated to fail. Mate, the path is such a treacherous trail! Through the Vile Reef you must battle, the Stranglethorn Vale you must survive! And only then the dreaded Deadmines you'll finally find! But be careful, because dead man tell no tales... about the treasures of VanCleef."

    Adventure's Main Themes:

    The adventure presents the Burst Mechanic, an ability that some minions have that let them make an special action whenever they want during your turn... but the catch is, that only once! So find the perfect moment to use a minion's Burst ability!

    Don't you hate it when you topdeck a Preparation or a Deadly Shot when your opponent has no minions? With Resourceful cards you won't need to worry again that never! Resourceful cards, a new Treasures of VanCleef's cycle, are cards that will try to do one thing and, if they can't, will do another instead! As a pirate, you need to think fast an improvise! All classes have a Resourceful card, found in the Class Challenges in the adventure!

     Wing 1: The Vile Reef

    You've been told about the big Defias treasure by former member of VanCleef's band Captain Greenskin. He plans to hire you in his crew to get to the Defias' Hideout in Stranglethorn. But first, your ship needs to survive the Vile Reef, where other pesky pirates seeking for the treasure will fight you!

    Showcase cards

    Bosses:

    Boss 1: Ironpatch

    As one of the main captains of the bloodsail bucaneers, Ironpatch would like to have a word with you about who gets the treasure! But worry not: if you manage to get away from his unending barrage of pirates and his swifty attacks, he'll reward you with two goblins from his tripulation (even though most likely you'll end this battle with less coins than when you started it!). Treat them well! Also, if you manage to defeat him playing his own game as a fellow Warrior of the sea, he'll honor you with two of his beloved hooks. He truly is a sweetheart on the inside!

He got a Mecha'thun to avoid a tie if both heroes get out of cards, he'll only play it when the requirements are meet.

     

    Heroic Hero Power

     Wing 2: Stranglethorn Jungle

    Greenskin finally managed to dock his ship into the Stranglethorn shores! But, don't think that your adventure is coming to an end! To arrive to the Deadmines, you'll need to cross the Stranglethorn Jungle, plagued with ferocious beasts and murlocs!

    Showcase cards:

(Nibbler will be in the battlefield like a tavern brawl boss, but you'll still be able to hit Gluggl. If you defeat Gluggl before the Deep Sea murloc, he'll substitute him like the King of Rats boss from Dalaran Heist). Also, Nibbler can't be killed by Poisonous minions nor hard removal spells.

    Nibbler starts on the battlefield, and at the end of each turn plays one of the boss spells above. Spells stop being played if he becomes the enemy hero:

    Card Reward:

     Boss 3: Memory of VanCleef

    I was thinking about the best bosses of Galakrond Awakening, and Khadgar vs. Avalanchan came to my mind. I love to replay that battle from time to time just to see in how many turns I can defeat the boss and which overpowered combo I can make. So, I wanted to make Vanessa similar. That's why she'll have a deck focused in customizing your hero power. The following cards are the ones her deck will be formed with:

     Hero Power explanation

    You'll start with a useless hero power. When you play one of the above cards (except starting again, of course) you'll add an Enchantment to your hero power. Targetting your hero power will let you use the enchanted effects. However, there's a limit of 3 enchantments. If 4rth enchantment is added, you'll lose the oldest one (the first). Enchantments can stack, including Hakkar's cost, and if one Hakkar's blood leaves your Hp cost will reduce.

    Vanessa is tasked with retrieving the treasure while the others get their loot from the last boss fight, but she gets surprised by an apparition of nothing less than her father! Of course she won't like to fight him, but while being under Greenskin's service she doesn't has any other chance... VanCleef will have a combo deck with cheap cards to support his images while Vanessa will have a deck stuffed with cards to concoct her poison. After Edwin vanishes, you'll obtain a ghastly reard and, at last, the treasure! Or so it seems...

    Boss Behaviour

    At turn 5 (or when you defeat her), she'll play the following card (she has it from the start of the game, but is unremovable):

    More Dialogue:

     Azshara will appear and transform Ashvane into a hideous beast, changing her Hero Power, restoring all her life and replacing her deck:

    Of course, if you manage to steal Azshara, you can also transform yourself!

    Spells (16): 

    Azshara plays a Control deck, and she's more than eager to steal all your minions! Her Tidebringers will come in handy for the last phase of this battle, be prepared for then!

    Boss Behaviour

    Azshara starts the game with the following Secret, preventing the battle to end during the first phase:

    As her hero power says, at 10 mana she'll take control of your hero (and heal it!), and replace herself with it. It'll mantain the same hero power, and Azshara will steal your hand and deck with yours, removing her deck, hand and board too. She'll recover everything when you defeat the new hero. Also, Plot Armor will be destroyed and will not return in the last phase.

    Yup, that's right, you'll replace your hero with one from Greenskin's crew! They have the basic hero power, and you can choose from:

    Alright, I ended all my decks, including Greenskin's crew ones!

    @Klipce

    You have a few typos in your boss cards, like Acorbearer instead of Acornbearer. Also, maybe I'm missing something but Lord Xavius having only 8 minions seems to go against his Hero Power. On the other hand, despite how simple the Hero Power is, Broken Lands sinergy with Jan'alai is genius.

    EDIT: Not sure if understood correctly, but is there any submission topic this time? How are the showcase cards displayed if the answer is negative?

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but won't Mind Twister in Warlock just target always your hero? He's theoretically the only possible target. Still love the card though.

    Ok, it's review time! Btw, thanks @Klipce for yours!

    @Klipce

    About the bosses, Il'gynoth is good, not sure which decklist you pretend to go with but Zoolock could be cool because his HP nullifies near all demon negative battlecries.

    About Elerethe Renferal, not much to say honestly. Kinga basic HP tbh, but it works well.

    Cenarius vs his dark side is a great idea! Also, Betrayer! is a Hero Power wth a lot of applications. I'm thinking on Sacrificelock or things like that. Well, it's good for any kind of deck, just that it sinergises with it.

    Lord Xavius with Endless Nightmare can be fun, infinite Nightmares can provide for a lot of swing turns! Not sure if the battle will end too quick, though.

    Also, I would suggest to try to change the art of Elerethe and Cenarius' dark side. It isn't a really big deal, but 3D models aren't as good as normal art. Just think about it if you got time after creating the decklists.

    Now for the minions, Nightmare Golem is a fun twist of Elementals sinergy, with being better played if the last turn you played a Demon instead. 6/6 on turn 4 is a big deal, but not as much as Flamewreathed Faceless so it shouldn't get out of balance. However, Shaman Demons? I know you've made a lot of neutral demons, but not sure if they're enough to justify many sinergies with Shaman.

    Recurring Nightmare, it could create a fun Miracle Warlock. Not sure if it is enough to create a whole archetype, but it's a really good card. If you manage to play like 20 spells, then this is really powerful, and you can play it 3 times thanks to Phantasm. Warlock doesn't lack draw engine so it could be cool to try.

    Lingering Soul is maybe too OP for it's deathrattle. Not sure if it's possible to balance but infinite minions are a big deal. Also, not sure if needs Phantasm, maybe it's even counterproductive due to filling your hand.

    Mind Twister is pretty original, Buffadin would love it! Maybe raise the cost a little bit because of Dinosize. Give at least time for the opponent to have mana to remove it.

    Not much to say about Zealous Sectator, it's a good tutor and that's enough.

    Lord Xavius is really good but pretty risky, however that's how demons should be! Cool for the last legendary of the adventure!

    @Wailor

    Let's start with the bosses, coming first Grommash! As @Klipce said, you should specify what you mean with permanent attack. I hope it doesn't mean it's mantained during your turn, because sacrificing each minion when attacking must be frustrating.

    Gara could be a race to be the one who empties the opponent's health first, but maybe you can also take it defensively, specially due to it not having a damaging Hero Power unlike hunter. Heck, I even thing that mage would benefit more from the Hero Power! Mantain it a Face Hunter though, even if it's just for the flavor.

    Mannoroth is good, also including a Battlegrounds minion is a great idea! The fact that it's also a pit lord (I even think that the pit lord in Annihilan Battlemaster is Mannoroth himself!) matches the flavor perfectly!

    Haha, Lord Garithos was quite an expected boss. Making him fel corrupted is a good way to put the logical outcome of the adventure in a really unexpected way (I honestly thought the bastard was going to ditch you)! Good Hero Power, but not sure if enough to mantain the fight long enough. I would raise his Health to avoid the battle ending too quick.

    About cards, Fel Blademaster is an original take on original Blademaster, but maybe it should deal damage to friendly minions only.

    Fel Horde seemed good until I readed all characters. In my opinion, it should only check for friendly minions. then it would be balanced and it would still fit Enrage Warrior nicely.

    I think Lost Netherwolf is good as it is. It won't likely survive a turn, and a 5 mana 4/3 Beast deal 2 damage to your hero and 4 to your opponent is not bad. If you manage to keep it it could go nuts, but though t's easier than the witchwood mech it won't happen constantly I think.

    Dire Fel Orc is nearly a powercreep on Gurubashi Berserker. Which isn't really a good card, but still. Maybe at 6 Mana it would be better, or reduce it's health to 4.

    Stoicism is good, nothing too flashy but a Paladin Secret is always welcome.

    Was expecting Lord Garrithos as the last wing card :D. Not to say I'm dissapointed, Mannoroh makes more sense in a lot of ways. He was the one to create the fel orcs and thus a really important factor in the First Invasion after all. About the card itself, if you don't have a board already and your opponent does, it's Deathrattle can leave you very open. The same can be said the other way around, but the opponent will have at least a whole turn to decide. However swingy cards are cool, and it could really win you the game if used correctly and your opponent doesn't have a good way to answer it, and with cards like Necrium Vial you could active the Deathrattle safely. Deathrattle Rogue could make fun uses of this card now that I think about it. Imagine Necrium Apothecary drawing that for example!

    Ok, so here are my reviews! I find it funny that for now, I'm the only one who haves 2 Class Challenges in the last wing, but most minions are still neutral!
