Can Shieldbearer attack? He is 0/4 and lets say I want to attack a 1/1 minion.I wont do any damage to it but Shieldbearer will take 1 damage and that will trigger his enrage.Just curious how this works.
Minions with 0 attack cannot attack.

How will "spellpower" work on spells like Arcane Missiles or Blizzard? If there is a Malygos in game Arcane Missiles caused three shots 6 damage each, or three shots with 5 damage divided among three shots?
Spellpower will get improved wording. The intent of spellpower is to buff the total amount of damage done by spells. In the case of Arcane Missiles, Spellpower +1 would fire an additional missile for 1 damage, not buff each individual missile by 1. Spellpower does not affect healing.

Well...that's huge (and makes more sense, balance wise). What about AOE effects, though?
For AOE effects, it's currently a little different. If you have Spellpower +1 and cast Blizzard, it will increase the base damage done overall by one, so Blizzard will do three damage instead of two. Swipe also falls in this category, doing 5 damage to a target and 2 to all other enemies.

If i play Pint-Sized Summoner --->The first minion you play each turn costs (2) less. does the effect stack if i play another Pint-Sized Summoner or another card with the same effect?
Yes, two Pint Sized Summoners stack their effects.

Arcane Missiles: Are the targets decided before the missiles fire? Or can a 1HP minion take all the hits?
If a 1 health minion is killed by the first hit of Arcane Missiles, it will no longer be a valid target for the remaining missiles.

Can Vaporize/Snipe really be baited out by Shamans and Paladins just from a use of their hero power?
Currently, yes. However, Vaporize is changing.

Does Questing Adventurer get buffed twice if you play a Razorfen Hunter?
The "when you play" term is changing on certain cards to make them more clear as to what is played and what is summoned. "When you play" will affect cards played from your hand, while "when you summon" will include minions summoned from other minions. Depending on how Questing Adventurer changes, it would be once from the former or twice if it were the latter. This will also be the case for Edwin VanCleef and other cards of the like.

My opponent has a stealthed 11/11 VanCleef on the board, and that's his only minion. Can I drop a Mind Control Tech and take Edwin from him, despite stealth?
Mind Control Tech is changing pretty dramatically.

Would a deadly shot hit him? (Patient Assassin)
Yes, random spells can still hit Stealthed minions.

Also, according to the definition of stealth, minions can't be targeted by abilities. If I drop a patient assassin, will he still get sniped/vaporized despite stealth?

Will the keyword "destroy" (ie. Deathwing, Doomsayer) kill minions with Commanding Shout up? Probably? What about immune (Bestial Wrath)?
Yes, Deathwing will kill minions with Commanding Shout active. The "destroy" effect of Deathwing doesn't count as damage.

Will Alexstrasza work on an Ice Blocked Mage? (Immune effects)
Very good question! We'll look into what we'll define as "Immune". :)

What about if you Commanding Shout and bring Gurubashi Berserker down to 1 health, if you attack him again, does he get +3 attack even though he didn't really take damage?
Also a very good question! We'll look into this one. For now, run very fast and very far away from the Gurubashi Berserker under the effects of Commanding Shout. :)

Faceless Manipulator Overlooked?

It's a 5-cost 3/3 card with the text "Choose a minion and become a copy of it.". Note, however, it does NOT say choose an enemy card, which is the implication you might get. This makes it an extremely powerful card potentially.
Faceless Manipulator can indeed target your own powerful cards, including Legendary cards. I wouldn't want to deal with two Ragnaros at the same time ...

Hearthstone's Collection Manager

Will I be able to keep my cards in Hearthstone's Collection Manager in my own specific order?
You won't be able to move cards around to your liking or order. However, there are many ways Hearthstone allows you to sort cards so you can easily find what you need.

Mind Vision and Thoughtsteal

Originally posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)

Don't you think names of these cards got mixed up? Mind Vision actually steals a card, and card could be percieved as "thought" of your opponent. On the other hand, Thoughtsteal merely copies cards, which is more like looking into opponents mind.
In their current form, it would certainly make sense if the names were reversed! These cards and their wording are going to change to be a little different and a bit more clear.
