(Updated: Returning & Changes) Hearthstone Battlegrounds Season 7 Reveals – Duos-Specific Cards, New Heroes, Minions & Spells, Card Changes

Update: Today is the last day of Battlegrounds reveals. We got all of the returning Heroes, Minions and Spells, as well as all of the ones that will get changed in the patch (nerfed/buffed).

Blizzard has just announced Battlegrounds Season 7! Season are the big content drops in Battlegrounds, similar to the regular Hearthstone’s expansions. This one is, however, even bigger than the previous ones, because it releases with a brand new mode called Battlegrounds Duos. First announced at BlizzCon, it lets you team up with a friend (or queue solo and get a random player as your teammate) and play against three other teams with shared health and special mechanics (such as the ability to pass minions between each other for 1 gold). You can learn more about Season 7 and Duos here.

In this post, I’ll compile all of the reveals coming over the next few days. This reveal season is a bit different than the previous ones. Cards won’t be revealed one by one by Blizzard or some content creators. Instead, all of the cards will be shown at once and every creator could prepare their content ahead of time. All of the reveals will be tagged with #HearthstoneDuos, so check them out to learn what other people think about the new cards.

I’m not really a Battlegrounds expert, as you can probably tell Constructed is the main focus on this website. So instead of talking about those new cards in details, I’ll just compile all of the reveals into a single post and leave thinking to all of you.

Reveal Schedule

April 4 – Duos-Specific Cards

The Heroes, Minions and Spells listed below can only be played in Duos mode! None of them will appear in the regular Hearthstone Battlegrounds.

Update: Apparently, three of the minions revealed on April 4 (Trusty Pup, Thousandth Paper Drake, and Prized Promo-Drake) will be playable in both Duos and Solo. I don’t know why they were announced today with all the Duos-exclusive cards. (Source)


Cho & Gall are unique in the sense that they can ONLY be played together as a Duo. If either player picks Cho or Gall, the other player gets the second half. After all, splitting him in half would be a bit weird…
