New Card Reveals

C'Thun's Chosen has been revealed on the Chinese fansite, Duowan Gaming. It is a card that will buff your C'Thun card when played.



Ancient Shieldbearer has been revealed on the official Hearthstone website. This is another card that benefits off C'Thun having at least 10 Attack.

Ancient evils have woken from their ageless slumber to stretch their tentacles and spread mayhem among mortals in Hearthstone’s newest expansion: Whispers of the Old Gods! Now it’s time to dig a little deeper, and find out more about the minds behind the tentacles.


Some might think that if you’ve seen one horrifying eldritch mass of eyeballs and squirming pseudopods bent on corrupting Azeroth, you’ve seen them all. Not so! There’s more to know, so pull up a moth eaten chair, crack open a dusty old grimoire, and get ready to delve into some delightfully forbidden lore.

C’Thun is basically a gigantic eyeball on a bed of the evillest pasta imaginable. Also tentacle eyebeams. And terror. And dread whispers that infest your imagination. In addition to having a name that is pronounced incorrectly in many different ways (hint: Kuh-THOON), C’Thun may be the most famous of the Old Gods. It lies imprisoned deep beneath the cyclopean desert ruins of Ahn’Qiraj. Its legion of insectile servants—the Qiraji—once helped conquer nearly all of Azeroth many millennia ago, and were more recently involved in a dustup that caused some high-profile mayhem. All this while still in prison! It’s hard to keep an Old God down.

C’Thun’s mortal cultists are some of the best in the business! Old Gods might not pay well, but the benefits can be great. Most of C’Thun’s devoted followers—16 in all—offer a direct buff to C’Thun when played. It’s not all volunteer work either; the more powerful C’Thun becomes, the greater the potential reward—it’s a squid-pro-quo kind of thing.

Beckoner of Evil

Some people just want to watch the world burn . . . or at least watch it get horribly corrupted by ancient entities from beyond time. There’s a phrase for people like that: “Pssst. Hey, Evil, come’ere for a sec.”

The Beckoner of Evil is a cultist who just can’t wait to break C’Thun out of prison, and she’s doing her part to bring that day ever nearer.

Ancient Shieldbearer

Bearing ancient shields probably sounds like a boring job, but Ancient Shieldbearer picked it up quick and hasn’t put it down since. Though, in fairness, she probably can’t put it down. Ever. Having an eyeball shield permanently fused into your flesh is sure to make finding a comfy sleeping position difficult, but it’s a small price to pay for such eye-catching protection! C’Thun has an eye for safety equipment. And style.

We hope you enjoyed cuddling up with C’Thun and friends. There are more Old Gods lurking in the dark below, so get ready for more soul-rending terror (and card reveals)!

Herald the coming of C'Thun using the #OldGods hashtag. The Old Gods just love Facebook’s new reactions and those little heart things Twitter is using now!

C'Thun's Flavor Text

Daxxarri has released a poll on the forums, asking you to vote for C'Thun's flavor text. The poll will run until March 20th, so you have some time to decide!

The choices are:
  • C'Thun really regrets creating the qiraji now that they've hung out together for millennia.
  • It’s all fun and games until someone loses an eye.
  • C'Thun's shopping list: eyedrops, contact lens cleaner, mascara.
  • If C’Thun is too scary, just imagine it with a monocle and top hat, and say hello to your ragtime pal!
  • C'Thun's least favorite Hearthstone card: Eye for an Eye.
Head over to the forum post and make your vote. C'Thun is waiting.

The bane of contact lenses everywhere, the ancient many-eyed Old God C’Thun is great at winking, but not particularly good at describing itself.

That’s where you come in! Cast your vote on what flavor text makes it into Hearthstone for the Legendary card, C’Thun!

Tavern Brawl #40

This week's Tavern Brawl is supposed to be An Evil Exchange according to Hearthstone's twitter) but currently on American servers, the Tavern Brawl is Battle of Tol Barad.

In the Battle of Tol Barad, every minion you play gives you a spell of the same mana cost that will be free! So summoning the likes of Emperor Thaurissan will give you 0-Cost versions of Lightbomb, Blizzard, and Ball of Spiders.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can you get spells from all classes?

Yes, there doesn't seem to be a restriction on which class the spell is for. So as a Mage you could get a Warlock spell.

What spells can I get?

All of them! Here's our database of spells sorted by mana cost.

Anything I should be aware of?

Tree of Life is the only nine mana cost card in the game. Need a reset? Put nine cost minions in your deck!

What cards do you recommend?

Summoning Stone! It treats the free spells as though they cost their normal amount!
Burly Rockjaw Trogg. With all the spells being cast, he's actually pesky enough to make your opponent think twice about doing so.
Violet Teacher. Druid's rejoice! There's plenty of spells to go around to generate dudes and buff them with your Power of the Wild.
Lock and Load. Want that Control Hunter to work? With the upside to playing minions, it just might finally be viable.
Djinni of Zephyrs. Throw him in your Paladin deck and watch as the buffs stack up!
Gadgetzan Auctioneer. Draws, draws, draws!
Mana Wyrm, Flamewaker, Archmage Antonidas, etc. Pretty much any mage card that synergizes with spells.
Loatheb! No free spells for you!

Where can I build a deck for this Brawl?
Because this Tavern Brawl does not use a premade deck, you'll have to create your own. Click on Create Deck in the Top Right corner to start creating your Tavern Brawl deck!

Once you've created your deck, you can share it for others using our new Tavern Brawl filter. When you're creating a deck, simply change the type of deck to Tavern Brawl so the rest of the world knows where they can use this deck.
