What do you guys think that "Shards 0/0" on the bottom of the cards is supposed to mean?

That's the set name and number.

Love the Flavor Text on Pterobot, Also Gas troll is the first card we have seen that really promotes dual shard play.

Are Gas Troll and Infernal Professor supposed to have the same art as the Glorfenblort / Mephistopheles mercenaries, or is it placeholder art?

Not that I have any problem with them having the same art, I like the concept of some mercenaries being regular troops acting as champions.

Gas Troll is the final piece I needed for my Ruby/Wild deck idea. Gonna be fun building that deck. Also good to see he's 1/1 for 1 already, right on the curve and can only get better.

Is there a reason why Wild Child, Cottontail Ronin, Feral Ogre, and Nelebrin Scout aren't there?

So are some of the PvE cards still missing their PvE symbol, or can we get PvP cards as rewards in PvE? Voodoo Doll and Gronts Favourite Pet for example, don't have the PvE symbol?

Am I missing something, or does Ruby Golem really duplicate exponentially, such that you'd have 4 of them two turns later, 8 three turns later, etc? That seems ridiculous for a 4/3 for 4 which is already a decent cost.

Well the raid AI needs something to give him a buff against 3 human players, so I'd say yep, that's how it works. Even if only a dungeon boss, it might just mean you have to build to neutralise this card.

Both Vengeful Spirit and Ruby Golem were showcased as Raid-Boss only cards. And it was described just as you wrote it during the DragonCon Panel

I tried to resist, but my first thought when seeing the Pterobot was upsetting. As a paleontologist, I feel compelled to point out that pterosaurs are not dinosaurs.

Referring to just the flavor text, it could be assumed that the speaker is simply ignorant of this fact, however, the card itself is listed as belonging in the category "TROOP, ARTIFACT - Robot Dinosaur"

Which is simply not the case.

Other then that (admittedly somewhat picky) complaint, I love the cards spoiled.

Mancubus = Hesriana? o.O
I'm kidding, as he's a lot more balanced with his power cost and Basic restriction.

Huh, so it looks as though some PvP cards can be gotten through PvE. I like that.

I just think some of the PVE cards didn't have a pve logo on them.

art looks great, necro twinkly diamonds and purple spook!

Gas Troll seems pretty strong. Reminds me of Experiment One, which sees some play, but easier to pump in many cases.
