Year of the Pegasus

The Year of the Pegasus is the new ‘Standard year’ in Hearthstone. This means there will be a Core Set Rotation, keeping the card pool fresh and easier to join for new players. All Year of the Hydra card sets will move from Standard format into Wild.

There is also a massive Core Set Update coming at the same time. Many cards are entering and leaving Core. The big changes you will notice here are Druid’s ramping mechanic being taken away and the Rune requirements being reduced for Death Knight cards.

Additionally, Battlegrounds Duos has been announced to come to the mode after a successful response a BlizzCon. There will be three new expansions during the Year of the Pegasus, starting with Whizbang’s Workshop.

All the key moments from the Year of the Pegasus are as follows: 

  • March 19: New Hearthstone Year Begins
    • Whizbang’s Workshop Expansion
    • Core Set Rotation – Year of the Hydra sets rotate out of Standard format and into Wild (includes Voyage to the Sunken City, Murder at Castle Nathria, March of the Lich King, and Path of Arthas)
    • Core Set Update – Includes new keyword ‘Elusive’ (can’t be targeted by spells of Hero Powers)
    • Hearthstone: Music from the Tavern album releases (can be found on Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes, YouTube, and Deezer)
    • New Legendary Hero Skin – Leeroy the Legend
  • March 26 – April 16: Whizbang’s Workshop Event
  • August: New Expansion 2 (expected)
  • November/December: New Expansion 3 (expected)

As soon as more information is officially announced for upcoming events during the Year of the Pegasus in Hearthstone, we will update this roadmap.
