Each year Blizzard announces a new theme for its collectible card game Hearthstone and selects several cards to be moved into the Hall of Fame. This year has been dubbed "Year of the Dragon" and nine cards have received Hall of Fame honors. You can visit the official Hearthstone blog for the Year of the Dragon and Hall of Fame announcements.

Bastion isn't the only one being nerfed. Blizzard today announced that it would be balancing its Hearthstone collectible card game with several card nerfs in a patch for both iOS and Android. The update is being rolled out to improve the "long-term health of both Standard and Wild.," according to a blog post.
The collectible card game Hearthstone is still going strong on the App Store, and this October it is bringing the extra spooky with its Hallow's End event. The Headless Horseman is back with Halloween treats for players who simply log in between October 17 and 10 p.m. PDT on October 31. Players will receive a free golden Witch’s Cauldron card and an Arena ticket as a Halloween treat.
Hallow's End will also include a dual class Arena where players can participate as each of the nine classes in costume. During the event you will choose a Hero and a Hero Power. You will then receive cards from both classes to use with with your free arena ticket.
Before announcing its new World of Warcraft expansion Warlords of Draenor at Blizzcon 2013, Blizzard revealed that its free-to-play card game Hearthstone Heroes of Warcraft will also be available on the iPhone and Android devices. The game was originally only expected to land on Windows, Mac and the iPad. The mobile version will launch after the desktop version sometime in Q2 of next year.
Hearthstone is a Magic: The Gathering-like digital collectible card game where players can battle as one of nine Warcraft heroes. Players will be able to earn free cards while playing the game, and will also be able to purchase additional card packs as in-app purchases, or by using their Battle.net balance.
