I found it (possibly a different it).

It looks like we will need to start sacrificing more goats to RNGesus. So much uncertainty being introduced to the game. The new name of the game seems like it will be minimizing uncertainty.

No word of being able to craft these new cards or if a new dust would be required.

There was actually twitter interaction where someone asked whether there would be special dust for new cards and one of game designers answered that they want to keep things simple and too much curencies is not simple

Okay, so are they going to be craftable at all?

Also, wow, the previews show a whole bunch of RNG, not sure how I feel about that right now.

Wow.
This guy will be a terror in arena, but in constructed, he doesn't have enough immediate impact to justify inclusion. As slow legendaries go, Ysera should still be better.

I'm looking forward to Shrinkmeister. I expect it'll have huge utility in Priest decks. It's a raptor if you're desperate, but if you can save it, it has strong combos with so many cards (SW:P, CSP, SM, ...). I've been hoping for a "-X attack this turn" card for a while.

Spider Tank takes away to coolness of Priest being the only class to have a 3 mana 3/4. Kind of sad.

I'm not a huge fan of the randomness, but it seems like most of the cards aren't too random, and those that are can't be included in a serious deck since they will more often be bad than good.

Not a big fan of the randomness either, although I do admit some of them could be pretty funny (i.e. Madder Bomber: Cost 5, 5/4, deal 6 damage to other random characters)

Edit: Blizzard might go the MtG route, where you have to buy a different pack that only has cards of this expansion.

Hm...so for arena rewards, I guess you get a random pack now? If you still only get the basic pack, it's going to be annoying to choose between arena/buying packs outright.

Are there enough expansion commons to make buying the new packs worth it, or will it be mixed?

With 120 cards I'd think there will be enough for a good number of card packs to be opened.

So far, my favourite card in the revealed card list is Mekgineer Thermaplugg. It's not that he's particularly powerful, but I find the concept of spawning Leper Gnomes in the end game really cool.

Also, there appears to be a good amount of deathrattle cards to boost Naxxramas. I'm still wondering if they're ever going to do anything with the Dragon Type. At least have a dragon slayer or something.

Thermaplugg seems terribly weak, and practically unusable. Dr. Boom seems good, as with Bomb Lobber (that's what it's called right?). The draw a card for 3 mana one is interesting, but I don't think it'll be great. Also the Warrior card looks pretty sweet. Oh and the Priest card. Wow it's going to be good.

I like Clockwork Giant as the anti-Handlock giant.

It's interesting at least, not sure how much play it'll see though. My first instinct is that it'll be a dead card too often to make up for its usefulness. Harrison Jones/Black Knight have a similar problem to be fair, but they both do something immediately, while this is just an 8/8, and if any deck can deal with 8/8s it's Handlock.

My guess is that it'll mostly see play in control decks for the control vs control matchup. It may see play in more aggressive decks if there's a lot of control decks on the ladder, but I find it hard to believe it'll help your overall win rate on average.

No, still only the 30-something cards I think. Two more maybe, plus those "spare parts" cards.
