Naxxramas T-Shirt Giveaway

With Naxxramas comes stitched flesh, and with stitched flesh comes incredible fashion. We've got a couple of brand new, soon to be released, Naxxramas T-Shirts to giveaway, and one of them may be yours if you enter our Naxxramas T-Shirt Giveaway!

The rules are simple: Create a Frostwyrm Quarter themed deck using our deck builder! Your deck must include at least 1 card from the Frostwyrm Lair (see above for which cards come out this week) and should be built around the cards you choose to include from the quarter. Once you've created your deck, you must submit it to this thread for your entry to count.

Winners will be chosen randomly from the list of eligible participants and will be sent a private message at the end of the giveaway, which they will have 24 hours to respond to, to send us your shipping and sizing details. The giveaway ends on Friday, August 22, 2014 at 11:59 PM EDT.

Windows 8 Issues Update

Quote from Natryndon

There will be a small client update in the near future specifically for these Windows 8 issues. It primarily addresses the alt-tab and performance issues but the development team believe that this should also resolve the operating system crashes that some Windows 8 users have been experiencing when exiting the game.

We'll post back here once the update is live and ask for status updates from you guys.

Thank you to everyone doing their best to help the rest of the community in this thread, it's greatly appreciated.

Blue Tweets

Spectral Spider is labeled as a beast but the spiders produced by its deathrattle are non-labeled minions. Is this intentional?
Yeah, those are ghosts, intentionally. - Ben Brode (Source)

Can you explain the design choice to have Mad Scientist put a secret directly into play instead of in hand?
Play makes it better. We wanted it to be good! :)
Too soon to say how good this card is and what the impact is, but with just a draw, it's in line with Loot Hoarder, a good card.
Except you have to play with secrets for it to be good. That's not always upside. - Ben Brode (Source)

Why doesnt Betrayal scale with Spellpower while Blade Flurry does?
It's kind of weird but betrayal deals no damage. It causes a minion to deal damage. - Ben Brode (Source)
Worth noting that this means that it DOES trigger Emperor Cobra, Patient Assassin and Maexxna's ability.

What's your opinion on the current state of Flare? General pro consensus that people seem to be catching onto is that its 2 strong.
Mostly I don't like how it randomly pwns secrets. You should have to make a choice to include a card like that in your deck. - Ben Brode (Source)
However, no current plans to change it. - Ben Brode (Source)

A while ago it was mentioned everything in HS was equally obtainable - now TeSPA back and CE WoD backs are 'limited' -any thoughts?
Don't remember that. Golden Gelbin Mekkatorque as been in the game since the beginning and it's the same kind of thing. - Ben Brode (Source)
