With the arrival of the Year of the Hydra, Darkmoon Races is now a Wild format card set, which means cards from the Darkmoon Races will no longer be playable in Standard format matches. For more information, see Game format.

Expanding upon the setting at Madness at the Darkmoon Faire as well as Ashes of Outland and Scholomance Academy, this set takes place at the breakneck trails at the fairgrounds, as racers from Outland, Scholomance, and Darkmoon all compete for glory.

Lore[edit | edit source]

The Darkmoon raceway in World of Warcraft
Warcraft Wiki icon.pngThis section uses content from the Warcraft Wiki.
Malle Earnhard runs the Darkmoon Races, starting at the boardwalk. The objective is to make it from the start/finish line to a set number of colored checkpoints, and then back to the finish line in as few bell tolls as possible, while taking advantage of speed and jump boosts and avoiding electrified fences.

History[edit | edit source]

Blizzard announced there would be a 35 card mini-set released for Madness at the Darkmoon Faire during the initial reveal for the expansion.

On January 17th, 2021, news site Windows Central mistakenly posted a press release for the set a few days early[1][2], revealing details including the price and returning mechanics from old sets, as well as updates to Battlegrounds and Duels coming in the same patch.

On January 19th, the set was officially announced with a trailer posted on the Hearthstone YouTube channel, which revealed the cards  Keywarden Ivory,  Envoy Rustwix, and  Landslide. Cards were revealed in groups every hour, which continued throughout the day until every card had been revealed.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Darkmoon Races is the first Mini-set.
  • Darkmoon Races had the shortest reveal season of any card set. It was revealed on January 19th, 2021, and every card was revealed that day.
