Update: Added the new Signature Cards at the bottom. Click here if you want to get straight to them!
Update #2: Added three new buffed cards. We actually got six undocumented buffs (cards that Blizzard tested but decided to not add to Caverns of Time made it through somehow), but three of them will get reverted. The three that stay are Firelands Portal, Timber Wolf and Jinyu Waterspeaker. They technically won’t be a part of Caverns of Time set, but I’ll still add them to this post since they’re newly buffed cards. Read more here.
Blizzard just announced the first-ever straight-to-Wild set. The expansion is called “Caverns of Time” and it’s going to include 147 cards – 113 buffed reprints of older cards and 34 brand-new cards. The set will only be playable in Wild (and in other formats using Wild cards, like the upcoming Twist) – you can’t play those cards in Standard.
Wild players have been waiting for quite some time to get some content for their favorite format, and I hope it’s only the first of many cool surprises for Wild players.
Release Date & How To Obtain It
While Patch 27.2 releases on August 22, the Caverns of Time set will be out on August 31, 2023. A day later (September 1), you will be able to play it in the new Twist format too (it will include Caverns of Time in eligible sets). You can read more about Patch 27.2 and the upcoming Twist season here.
If you’re wondering how to get new cards – it’s simple. Let’s start with reprints. If you already own original versions of any of the new cards, you don’t have to do anything – they will also get updated. But what if you don’t?
The easiest way to get the cards is through the new Caverns of Time card packs. They will contain all of the reprints as well as the new cards. Duplicate protection will be fully implemented, which means that if you own original versions of some of the cards, they won’t appear in packs. Caverns of Time card packs will also include Signature versions of some of the cards.
Alternatively, all of the cards can be crafted for Arcane Dust. If you’re only looking for a few specific cards, that might be your best option. If you want a full set, however, you should probably buy some packs instead.
Caverns of Time Cards
All 147 Caverns of Time Cards are now revealed!
Since the buffed cards are from older sets, we don’t have any Demon Hunter or Death Knight cards – those classes didn’t exist yet.
Here are all of the Caverns of Time cards we know so far. Note that I put “triple class” cards from Mean Streets of Gadgetzan (Don Han'Cho, Kabal Courier etc.) in their respective classes instead of Neutral even though they’re technically Neutral cards.
