Hearthstone‘s Year of the Raven approacheth, phasing out the previous expansions of Whispers of the Old Gods, One Night in Karazhan, and Mean Streets of Gadgetzan.

But there is something new on the horizon: The Witchwood. New cards, new keywords (two of them, in fact!), new legendaries, new single player content. Just all around new.

Though Blizzard has only teased a handful of cards, the new keywords – Echo and Rush – have oodles of potential.

Echo basically allows you to play a card multiple times per turn. Each time you summon a minion, an echo copy of it will be placed in your hand, and you can keep playing the card till you run out of mana.

Rush is Charge 2.0. These cards can attack the same turn they are played, but they cannot target heroes, only minions.
