How does card rotation works in Hearthstone?

Every year, Hearthstone undergoes a big change, rotating several cards to Wild, as well as a set change. In 2022, all expansions released in 2020 will move out of the Standard format. Ashes of Outland, Scholomance Academy and Madness at the Darkmoon Faire will be the sets affected this year.

Note

: Rotation will take place on April 12 with the launch of the Voyage to the Sunken City expansion.

Cards that will be missed in 2022

Demon Hunter

Ashes of Outland

Cards like Spectral Sight and Skull of Gul'dan belong to Ashes of Outland, and with the release of this set, the class will say goodbye to a lot of draw power.
Loading icon
The Demon Hunter will also lose Immolation Aura, one of the best removals that was used a lot.
Loading icon

Scholomance Academy

Scholomance brought a new

Soul Fragments

mechanic, which was sovereign when it launched, but after many

nerfs

it won't be missed.
Loading icon
Glide is a spell that is still working today, and it's more of a buy out of the standard format.
Loading icon

Madness at the Darkmoon Faire

Darkmoon Faire was one of the best expansions for the class, when it comes out it will cause a little pain for Demon Hunter fans – many vital cards are leaving. Il'gynoth and Felscream Blast were part of a

OTK

combo, and the two cards are on their way out.
Loading icon
The other

OTK

was working with the Hero Kurtrus, Demon-Render along with Expendable Performers and Felfire Deadeye. The Hero will still be part of the standard format, but it can wave goodbye to the other pieces in the combo.
Loading icon

Druid

Ashes of Outland

Several popular spells of the class were part of this set, among them worth mentioning Overgrowth and Glowfly Swarm.
Loading icon
Another card is Fungal Fortunes, a great draw for the Druid.
Loading icon

Scholomance Academy

There are few Scholomance cards that were still being used for the class. Adorable Infestation and Lightning Bloom are two of them.
Loading icon
However, other cards like Guardian Animals and Survival of the Fittest have already been part of many older decks.
Loading icon

Madness at the Darkmoon Faire

This expansion was great for Druid lovers, and will be sorely missed. Guess the Weight and Arbor Up worked very well in many decks.
Loading icon
And we have to talk about Eclipses: Lunar Eclipse and Solar Eclipse revolutionized the game, and now they're coming out.
Loading icon

Hunter

Ashes of Outland

A set that didn't bring many interesting cards for the Hunter, but we can't forget about the Scavenger's Ingenuity spell.
Loading icon

Scholomance Academy

The Face Hunter will have good losses, like Wolpertinger and Demon Companion.
Loading icon

Madness at the Darkmoon Faire

Few cards of the class worked in this expansion, but they are fundamental cards for some Hunter decks. These are the Trampling Rhino and the Rinling's Rifle weapon.

Mage

Ashes of Outland

This set will be missed, huh? The Starscryer is well used, even today.
Loading icon
Several controversial cards were also released in this expansion, such as Incanter's Flow, Evocation and Astromancer Solarian which were very popular. But with some nerfs, they disappeared from the game.
Loading icon

Scholomance Academy

Mozaki, Master Duelist, owner of one of the biggest

OTKs

in the history of the class, goes into Wild mode. In addition to the Cram Session spell, which could easily draw 7 or 8 cards.
Loading icon

Madness at the Darkmoon Faire

Currently, only the Mask of C'Thun will be needed, but this expansion featured the Deck of Lunacy, another spell that has been used a lot (and controversial).
Loading icon

Paladin

Ashes of Outland

Ashes of Outland literally brought the class to life, and with her departure, can we decree the Paladin's death?

Libram

are saying goodbye to the default mode, which is literally fundamental to Paladin decks. Among the

Libram

it is worth mentioning Libram of Wisdom and Libram of Hope, in addition to the minions Aldor Attendant and Aldor Truthseeker.
Loading icon
Of course, how to forget about the legendary cards Lady Liadrin and Murgur Murgurgle? These will be missed.
Loading icon

Scholomance Academy

Devout Pupil is the only Scholomance minion still doing well in the class's decks.
Loading icon

Madness at the Darkmoon Faire

Darkmoon Faire brought some interesting weapons, like Libram of Judgment and Hammer of the Naaru.
Loading icon
And also the secret Oh My Yogg!
Loading icon

Priest

Ashes of Outland

Many control spells are going out of standard, such as Renew, Apotheosis and Soul Mirror.
Loading icon
Much to the sadness of some (and the joy of many), the Priest is losing Sethekk Veilweaver, that minion that can practically generate infinite resources in your hand.
Loading icon

Scholomance Academy

The polemic Mindrender Illucia was part of Scholomance, in addition to the strong spell Raise Dead.
Loading icon

Madness at the Darkmoon Faire

Other control tools are saying goodbye, such as Hysteria and Palm Reading spells.
Loading icon
Nazmani Bloodweaver provided Miraculous turns for the Priest, and it's another card that's going out.
Loading icon

Rogue

Ashes of Outland

This expansion bet heavily on Rogue of Secrets, with three secrets and Shadowjeweler Hanar.
Loading icon

Ad

In addition to also bringing in some minions that interact with stealth, such as Spymistress and Greyheart Sage.
Loading icon

Scholomance Academy

Some spells will be missed, such as Cutting Class and Secret Passage, which always saved the Rogue when he needed a draw.
Loading icon
At one time, Jandice Barov was also used a lot, do you remember her?
Loading icon

Madness at the Darkmoon Faire

More draw cards are saying goodbye, Swindle has always been popular with decks in the class.
Loading icon
Recently, cards like Cloak of Shadows and Tenwu of the Red Smoke have started working.
Loading icon

Shaman

Ashes of Outland

Few cards from this expansion have served the Shaman, it's worth mentioning only the weapon Boggspine Knuckles and the spell Serpentshrine Portal.
Loading icon

Scholomance Academy

Here at the Academy, several cards of the class stood out, among them the spells Lightning Bloom and Devolving Missiles.
Loading icon
And the legendary minions Instructor Fireheart and Ras Frostwhisper.
Loading icon

Madness at the Darkmoon Faire

The Elemental Shaman will lose a big piece with the departure of this set, the Cagematch Custodian has always been very popular with players.
Loading icon
Do you remember the OTK Shaman that came out recently? The combo was basically done using Y'Shaarj, the Defiler along with the Dunk Tank spell, the two cards will rotate into Wild mode.

Warlock

Ashes of Outland

Some discard interactions are part of Ashes in Outland, such as Hand of Gul'dan and Nightshade Matron.
Loading icon

Scholomance Academy

The Warlock received removal spells in Scholomance, which were heavily used in more control decks.
Loading icon
Raise Dead and Flesh Giant are cards that have been great since their release to date, but will now be unavailable in the Standard format.
Loading icon

Madness at the Darkmoon Faire

Backfire has always been a very efficient draw for the class, and it will be a very considerable loss.
Loading icon

Warrior

Ashes of Outland

The Control Warrior player will want to cry after discovering that the weapon Bulwark of Azzinoth along with the spells Bladestorm and Sword and Board are going out of Standard mode.
Loading icon
And also Corsair Cache, which still works well in most decks.
Loading icon

Scholomance Academy

More losses for the Control Warrior, here who will say goodbye are the minions Lord Barov, Troublemaker and Rattlegore.
Loading icon

Another considerable output is the Cutting Class spell, an essential source of draw for the class.
Loading icon

Madness at the Darkmoon Faire

Few cards from this expansion are still used by Warrior players, worth mentioning the removal Minefield.
