Hello once more and welcome to another Touchstone Tavern, our weekly column that covers everything that happened in the world of Hearthstone [Free] this past week. As you can probably guess, the world of Hearthstone currently revolves around the upcoming expansion, Mean Streets of Gadgetzan, so most of the news had something to do with the upcoming set. There's talk about the state of Priest and Rogue, new mechanics (good and bad") coming to the game, Murloc Yule Log, and plenty of videos with card reveals and other fun stuff. So, let's not delay and let's jump right in, shall we"
Murloc Yule Log Is Best Yule Log
If you enjoy Yule log videos, you'll love this Murloc one. Coming just in time for the holidays, this 53-minute long video is a great way to put your troubles behind for a bit and focus on something simple and silly. There are all kinds of things happening in the video, but I won't spoil them because that would be a pity. Enjoy your Murloc Yule Log video.

With Blade Furry nerfed, Rogue is not the weapon class anymore unless the remaining Rogue cards from Mean Streets are some kind of weapon buffs. Otherwise, the class will be very weak for the foreseeable future.
Devolve and Jade Idol are Terrible-Designed Cards
This writer isn't crazy about two new cards, Devolve and Jade Idol. Devolve is a Shaman spell that transforms your opponent's minions into minions worth 1 less mana (the opposite of Evolve)...
