Learning to love Hearthstone's new discover mechanic

Watch on YouTube | Subscribe to Polygon on YouTube

When Hearthstone's League of Explorers adventure launched its first wing last week, it brought with it a bunch of new cards and a new mechanic: discover. With discover, you're given a choice of three random cards of a certain subset (say, all three-mana cost cards, or all spells), and you get to choose one that goes into your hand immediately.

It's a cool idea that highlights the randomness of Hearthstone without getting rid of a sense of strategy. And it's also the focus of this week's Tavern Brawl event.

In the video above, we play a few games using discover every round, which allows us to dig deep and use some very weird, fun cards that we don't see much of normally. Check it out, and if you'd like to see more Hearthstone videos, take a look at our full playlist on YouTube.
