Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft Currencies - Gold and Arcane Dust
There are two ways of getting new cards in Hearthstone. Those are either getting packs, or crafting them. You can get packs for 100 gold each from the store, or get them from playing in The Arena. The Arena is a way more fun way and way more efficient than buying the packs from the store.
To craft new cards, you need to disenchant your old cards and get Arcane Dust out of them, or get extra arcane dust from playing arena. In the end you will need to disenchant extra cards.
