Much akin to
The Grand Tournament
which introduced both

The League of Explorers
came with its own new keyword.

, a feature that prompts the player to choose one of three randomly selected cards to their hand. Regardless of the card played, Discover will almost always prompt the user with cards that are either neutral or of their class. For example, when playing , a Mage will never be presented with as an option.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can Discover present duplicate options?
No, the mechanic selects three different options and therefore having two or more of a cards be the same is not possible.
Can you refrain from choosing one?
No, you must choose from one of the available options to move on.
What happens if your turn ends while you're selecting a card?
The leftmost card will be chosen for you.

For example, would discover you Warlock cards. If you play a neutral minion with Discover as , one of the classes will be selected at random and it will draw from a pool of both that and neutral cards as per usual.
