The limited time Doom in the Tomb event went live on October 8 and will end on the morning of October 30 – and has a unique Tavern Brawl for each week of the event.

23 cards from Hearthstone history have also been brought back into standard play and every player will receive a copy of all the cards during the event, even if they already own some of them.

The cards are considered event cards so they aren’t permanent additions to your collection past the event’s end date – they also can’t be disenchanted or crafted into materials.

Why are these cards coming back?

All of the cards returning for Doom in the Tomb are definitely heavy hitters and have the chance to change the course of a game.

Take for example Sylvanas Windrunner, which takes control of one random enemy minion as soon as the card is played.


Despite the controversy surrounding the game at the moment following a Hearthstone pros comments on the Hong Kong protests, most players seem to be excited about the new event and the returning cards.

All 23 cards will be given to players for free during the event, and will be allowed in Standard Play until the next major Hearthstone update.

Players that don’t have all the cards, but still want to use them, will have to figure out some way to craft or unlock them for use in Standard before the next big patch.
