Is there somewhere an overview of upcoming products and estimated release dates ?

First time I hear of Lost Grimoire ... can't find anything regarding upcoming products and release schedule.

I wish that next academy mage would be Warlord. Oh how much i want to have good goblin swarm :)

Try running goblins in Domination with this guy.  Elusive goblins are pretty amazing in a format that's pretty much all about guarding and/or being elusive!

I just noticed Slaknir's "goblin force push" ability is technically a ranged attack, which means he could even do it over a wall that blocks LoS via Archer's Watchtower (Indirect).

I wonder though, will there be Academy sized spellbook packs or something? It seems these mage expansions for Academy don't include a 40-pocket sized spell book with designs to match the theme of the mage. Far as it looks, there is only going to be the core set's Beastmaster and Wizard's books to use.

Sure, we could use spare Arena spellbooks, but those are huge 80 pocket books. Wasted space compared to the Academy sized books.

Would love more of the Academy 40-pocket design options in spellbooks sometime.

Personally, I would prefer only the cards and save on the cost of the spellbook. They could sell a pack of 2 books for those who want them.

agreed on the book part.

I just noticed Slaknir's "goblin force push" ability is technically a ranged attack, which means he could even do it over a wall that blocks LoS via Archer's Watchtower (Indirect).

I have tried to use him already, but I just never find the mana to cast him since swarm strategies are always mana drained. A goblin swarm seems to gain more with Barracks Armory. Especially the armor is a big help for weak goblins. I love the idea to use him, so I'm far from giving up on slaknir.

Maybe use fewer goblins and no barracks? The academy enchantments could let you beef up 2 or 3 goblins
