A year ago, Blizzard added Diamond Cards to Hearthstone. Diamond cards higher in rarity than Gold are animated, although otherwise identical to the regular versions of the same cards. They are cosmetic items, and when they first launched, you could get them by purchasing expansion packs or collecting legendary cards from all collections. The newest Diamond Card is from the Orc Shaman Drek’Thar and can only be purchased from the in-game store for 3,000 Gold or $25.
