With the final card reveal stream complete, we now know all of the cards which will be arriving in Hearthstone in just a couple of days time.

The cards that weren't shown off on stream were revealed on Facebook. The full set of neutral minions in that final trenche are in the gallery, here are some of the highlights.

This card doesn't have a super cool effect, but the stat line and tribe is kinda scary. Dire Mole is a one mana 1/3 beast, and that has the potential to be powerful with cards like Houndmaster. Spell Hunter might be the direction Blizzard is pushing, but this could mean Beast or Aggro Hunter see play.

Every fantasy game has a chest mimic, and now Hearthstone is no exception. Toothy Chest is basically a cheaper version of Validated Doomsayer, which is a card that never gets played. This might not be useful, but it's certainly fun.

Dragon Priest has received a few new tools in this expansion, so here is a card that specifically targets dragons. Just add this and Rend Blackhand, and you can single handedly fight back the Druid meta.

With legendary weapons being added in this new set, people are getting pretty worried about weapons being too strong. Acidic Swamp Ooze and Harrison Jones already exist—but if you can't afford the legendary or just want more weapon destruction, here's Corrosive Sludge.

Kobolds and Catacombs, Hearthstone's next expansion, releases this Thursday (Dec. 7) in the Americas region. It will then launch in Europe and other regions on Dec. 8.

The set includes 135 new cards, including two legendaries for each of the game's nine classes—a legendary minion and a legendary weapon.

Kobolds and Catacombs is the final set of the 2017/18 standard set calendar, the Year of the Mammoth. When the next expansion arrives in the Spring, the game's three oldest expansions will rotate out.
