With a new expansion launching next week, a new patch for Hearthstone has been released as preparation. One of the things Patch 21.0 brings to the game is the updates for Duels like the new passive treasures.

In Hearthstone, passive treasures are special cards used in Duels. These cards give specific effects for the entire game and are not put in the deck. For this patch, the new passive treasures are:

  • Party Replacement
    • At the start of your turn, summon a 2/2 Adventurer with a random bonus effect.
  • Inspiring Presence
    • After you play a Legendary minion, reduce the cost of a random minion in your hand by (1).
  • Greedy Gains
    • Your minions have +2/+2 but cost (2) more (up to 10).
  • Meek Mastery
    • Your Neutral minions cost (1) less and have +1/+1.
  • Legendary Loot
    • At the start of the game, equip a random Legendary weapon.
  • Deathly Death!
    • After a friendly Deathrattle minion dies, destroy the minion with the lowest Health.
  • Ooops, All Spells!
    • At the start of the game, destroy all minions in your deck.
    • Your spells cost (1) less and gain +2 Spell Damage.
