First impressions are really positive. AEG seems to be getting better at this as they go deeper into the game. The new stuff in this expansion seems to be interesting, reasonably well-balanced, and explore new themes while not pushing the complexity any. I like it so far, and the difficulties that plagued Wrath of the Elements (and to a lesser extend the original set) seem to be in the past.

These days, I usually play Dragonspire-Thornwood-Heart of Doom, to give the game a bias towards the new stuff. I'm at the point too that we usually tweak the card mixes a touch once we see what's out there, just to get rid of anything that looks problematic or that we aren't in the mood for (Chaos Scroll, Chieftain's Drum, some of the weirder settings. Plus of course we've banned the Trainer and rarely play the über-powerful base set heroes like the Outlander). Not much usually, but I think Thunderstone really does benefit from applying some discretion to the card mixes and not always just playing whatever the randomizer spits out.

Great addition that doesn't add any additional rules, just more variety. I haven't yet played with the Heart of Doom Thunderstone, but this could be a good catch-up mechanism in a runaway game.

Hereos: I'm loving them all so far. Bluefire is great for getting some early momentum on XP, and Dark is likewise good for some early momentum on clearing out a deck of Militia. Highland is a solid fighter. Jondul is unstoppable at level 3, especially when paired with a Jondul Bow, and double-especially when Dryads are out. A Nyth Marksman tears it up. But so far the standout is Isri. I love heroes who synergize with themselves. The Isri is useful early on to clear the deck of daggers and iron rations. Mid game, and as level 2, she can sacrifice a weapon even if it's too heavy to carry. And late in the game, at level 3, she can blow them away directly from the village. In a two-player game, she just rocks.

Village: Lots of good cards for deck-thinning; too numerous to name, but I like all the options; once mixed in with cards from other expansions, should help players to fine-tune their decks. I like Chalice Mace, to finally give some props to Clerics; I enjoy playing with clerics, but it's rare that they play a significant role in my deck.

Monster: The Dryads are strange, in that they pollute the table with a ton of untouchable monsters. Basilisk are interesting in that their strength is relative to my particular hand when I enter the dungeon. Doppelgangers are definitely interesting.

4. Bluefire
5. Dark

Probably the best expansion for the first Thunderstone set. Makes for an excellent way to play "epic" variant.

Best extension so far, I love the new heroes which have ability to interact with the Village from the Dungeon with buys and level ups. The Heart of Doom is very difficult, a few other nice Guardians as well. The Dark hero is by far the best in solo play, and to defeat HOD.

For the first time since I bought the game, every card in the village seemed like it could easily be useful in the right situation. Everything was just so much fun. Best expansion, by far.
