Are there other Hero cards available in the first release?
 
I'm curious whether there are other Hero cards in this first release besides the ones in the Starter Decks?

I guess I've seen a special one for the Draft format (is that legal outside a Draft format?), but I'm curious whether there might be other Heroes lurking in packs that are different from the Starter ones.

There are John Kovalic alternate art hero cards in the boosters. The same six heroes as the starters, but each illustrated by John.

The Goldfish Wanderer (neutral) hero is in the event kit.

The Flamingo Wanderer (neutral) hero is in the second event kit.

Were either of those at the pre-release events? I didn't see any promo cards (though I can't complain, as we got snazzy Jumbo D6s).

Those neutral heroes were not. Those will be available from retailers during draft events.

I did see a few alternate art hero cards pulled from boosters at the stores I visited.

Cool. Are the Neutral Heroes playable outside the Draft format?

At home, totally. I do not know the exact tournament rules, so I'll let someone else tackle that.

Right now, the constructed-deck rules require you to use one of the six starter Heroes (or alternate-art equivalents), plus neutral cards and the cards of that Hero's class (color). The neutral Heroes are better for draft because they make a wider variety of cards usable in your deck.

I got a Thief in the boosters we won at PAX South. I assume it's Alternate Art but I can't confirm. We didn't get a Thief deck at the event.

Yep, that's a John Kovalic-illustrated Hero. You can also check the rarity; the alternate-art Hero cards are all rares, I believe.

The Goldfish Wanderer will not be a tournament legal hero, just draft. Feel free to play with it at home though.
