The next mini-set of Hearthstone is set to be released next year, and while Blizzard has just left the Shadowlands behind for the next World of Warcraft expansion, the current expansion is Murder at Castle Nathria, a mystery murder set in the vampiric domain of Revendreth. Here, the main theme is Sylvanas Windrunner's trial.
Sylvanas was the main antagonist in World of Warcraft for a long time, beginning with the Battle for Azeroth expansion and finishing in Shadowlands. According to Hearthstone, she intends to make her appearance somewhat less prominent; for instance, Sylvanas' new Legendary card is revealed via a cheesy spinning newspaper reveal.

Sylvanas faced similar challenges in World of Warcraft, where she appeared in court against Tyrande Whisperwind and her former colleagues to confess her guilty for all of her war crimes. This time, the Jailer, the end boss of Shadowlands, appears.
35 new cards will be revealed in the mini-set: four legendary, one epic, 14 rare, and 16 common. These cards may be purchased as part of Murder at Castle Nathria packs or as a mini-set bundle.
