Hearthstone Patch 17.2 finally brings deck ordering!

Original Article

With Patch 17.2, Blizzard brings a whole bunch of new features to Hearthstone by introducing a new minion as well as three new heroes to Battlegrounds.

However, the feature that retained our attention is something the community has been asking for years already: the possibility to reorder decks. With this new update, it will be now possible.


  • Dire Wolf Alpha has been removed from the minion pool.

  • Rabid Saurolisk

New Heroes

Players with Battlegrounds perks will have immediate access to playtest these three new heroes before they are fully unlocked on May 26.

Lady Vashj

  • Evolving Electricity [Passive]: After you upgrade Bob’s Tavern, replace his minions with ones of a higher Tier.

Maiev Shadowsong

  • Imprison [Cost 1]: Make a minion in Bob’s Tavern Dormant. After 2 turns, get it with +1/+1.


  • Verdant Spheres [Passive]: Every third minion you buy gains +2/+2.

Deck Reordering

You can now reorder your deck lists! While viewing your deck list in the Collection Manager, press and hold a deck button to enter “rearranging” mode. Once you’re in rearranging mode, just click and drag on your decks to order them! Deck rearranging will not work until all nine starting heroes (excluding Demon Hunter) are unlocked.
