How the Hearthstone Twist Wonders format works
The Twist Wonders format involves cards from past expansions alongside the Legacy and Caverns of Time sets. Season 1 features every Hearthstone class except for the Demon Hunter or Death Knight classes since they didn't exist in the seasonal list of past expansions.
Below is the list of eligible card pools:
- Legacy (not Core or Classic)
- Curse of Naxxramas
- Goblins vs Gnomes
- Blackrock Mountain
- The Grand Tournament
- The League of Explorers
- Whispers of the Old Gods
- One Night in Karazhan
- Mean Streets of Gadgetzan
- Caverns of Time
"We’re excited to announce that Caverns of Time will be in the Twist rotation for at least the first three Twist seasons," Blizzard noted in an announcement.
Caverns of Time refers to a Wild Hearthstone set that boasts a total of 147 cards. These include 113 reprints and 34 brand-new ones. There are also Signature cards to add to one's collection.
The return of classic favorites
Remember the Jade Golems decks, C’Thun shenanigans, and Loatheb? These legendary minions are in Hearthstone Twist Season 1 as well! In an interview about the Twist beta, Hearthstone's Matt London and Chadd Nervig told esports.gg about the philosophy behind the return of old cards.
“Ultimately, I think that we want to provide those opportunities for people that don't have built-out collections to be able to jump in and play Twist,” London said. “But one of our primary goals with Twist is to create more value for players’ existing collections.”
This means Wild players with a decent collection can jump into Twist easily.
Hearthstone Twist Battle-ready decks
Meanwhile, newer players can catch up by purchasing some battle-ready decks. To obtain these decks, just visit the in-game shop and get them using gold, real money, or Runestones.
