Cards Rotating Out in 2019

Play Mode Discussion
After asking for advice on cards to craft to best avoid the upcoming rotation, I looked for a list of cards which will be leaving standard in 2019. I couldn't find a nice simple text list, so decided to make one. I thought some of you might find it useful for future reference. Enjoy xx

Ah it was nothing. I'm a PHP developer so I just wrote a script to parse the tables from the Hearthstone Gamepedia page. I figured this might come in handy as a reference point for upcoming threads and questions from other users
What they need to do is Rotate the Classic set.... and design a new core set.

Game needs to be flipped on it's ear.

classic set is 75% of the reason for the accelerated stagnate meta. cause all the classes use the same 10-15 core cards for every deck.

Blizzard really painted themselves into a corner when they made it the evergreen set.

Very unwise.

they have never ruled out bringing wild cards back into standard.

I would imagine the day is coming sooner than later.
I'm really sad to see Lyra go. So many amazing moments with this card.
Thank you very much for your efforts and for publishing this here! :}
I imagine it will be very helpful for many people given how it is categorized, especially to those who want to search for individual cards.

Cards Rotating Out in 2019

Knights of the Frozen Throne

Kobolds and Catacombs

Good.
Argh, no more Lich King....oh the humanity!
Ugh. There goes my beloved mind blast priest deck. Can’t make it work without anduin. Psychic scream being gone seals it too. It’s over.
Thanks for your post Cheeseberry ! :-)
I enjoyed the Death Knights when they first came out. that first month of building decks around them was the most fun i've ever had playing hearthstone.

I actually have thought HS was overdue to give Classic a facelift. Even if it's more of an updated Classic set where most cards stay and a few rotate out for some new cards. I don't even see the issue with a few of the "new" Classic cards being older cards that rotated into Wild that get added to the Classic set. Basically, I think Classic could be updated once every two years or so without much of an issue.

You're more than welcome, hopefully it will be useful to a few people at some point.

I was against this idea when I first heard it a year or so back, but now I'm in full agreement. I can think of a bunch of fun candidates I'd like to see go classic on a personal level... but I think the vast majority of players would agree that unique tech cards should be moved into the classic set.

In my opinion having a complete toolkit of high-risk-high-reward tech cards available to everyone is the only way to keep the meta as dynamic as possible on a long term basis. It feels like some classes and archetypes become somewhat immune to the available tech cards as cards rotate. Every playstyle should have some form of counter play.
No more: Shudderwocks Shamans,Hydronox Druids,Deathrattle Hunters,Cube Warlocks,Odd Paladins. RIP

Did i forget somebody =D
Standard's gonna be in a much better place after these cards rotate out LOL
Pour some liquor out for priest.

So true - we desperately need some fresh decks out there. There are cards still being used and have been for like the last 4 years or whatever. C'mon. Rotate some other cards. Shake it up for chrissakes.
this time , i will change to wild, i enjoy the controllock deck so much, but without DK Guldan it wont happen, so I will not dust but migrate to wild slowly
Thank you sooo much for this list. Much needed info!
