Blizzard have been teasing the new expansion again, this time in the form of The Gadgetzan Gazette newspaper.

The first edition to be released was Volume 32 Number 7 and talks about the first unrobbable bank in Gadgetzan. The line "Citizens can see the new building for themselves when the First Bank of Gadgetzan opens to the public with a ribbon-cutting ceremony next week" is encouraging. Presumably this means we will get a reveal of the new set at BlizzCon.

Volume 37 Number 8 talks about Gadgetzan Port. Other than the ongoing themes of money, trade, and greed, the main point of interest from a Hearthstone point of view is the mention of "Secret dragon people". With lots of Dragon cards rotating out in the new year, it will be encouraging to fans of Dragons that they seem likely to be replenished in Gadgetzan.

Does no one pick on the mentioned red mana? Maybe a new mechanic? Or is this too far fetched?

Now that'd be interesting. Perhaps mana to be used on stolen spells/cards?

I would love if they add the possibility of playing hybrid (half-blood) classes... Like a pala-warrior, warlock-priest, mage-rogue, shaman-druid, would be awesome,  endless possibilities.

Very interesting. I do think it would be crazy OP for certain class combos though, especially if it was restricted to certain classes being with others. Imagine a Miracle-Tempo Mage Rogue deck. It would be unstoppable!

Did someone say 24 damage from Flamewaker on turn 3?

I would also love a thing that was suggested before TGT launch - specs. Different specs would have different hero powers, but still would be in the same class (meaning that it would have the same cards available). It's probably not gonna happen, but fingers crossed!

I'd guess that this may hint at them expanding the mechanic they used for Cho'Gall where you spend health ("red mana") instead of regular mana to play a card.  Maybe that paired with an increase in healing cards?

Maybe an overheal mechanic for heroes. This could make priest not trash and make heals better in standard, but it would destabilize wild meta, mainly by making freeze mage top quality 100% stainless steel.

      This is the second time this Brawl appears.
      The trend of Tavern Brawls themed after Death Knight Hero Powers continue: last week we had Rise of the Zombeasts, now we have Shadow Reflection.
      In this constructed Brawl, you can craft a deck of any size with cards from your collection. The rest of the deck will consist of Shadow Reflections. Decks consisted of 30 cards (and thus with no Shadow Reflections) can still work, given that Odd Paladin has reportedly been successful (and a total fun breaker).
      Judging from the previous time this Brawl was around, Aggro and OTK decks seems to be more favoured. Some decks that had success were Aggro Mage or Ice Lance Mage, Combo Priest with Radiant Elemental, Hunter with Mechwarper and Metaltooth Leaper and Quest Rogue. This time around a new Warrior deck, which mostly relies on Bring It On!, has surfaced to counter all the Priest Mind Blast madness.
      Good luck and have fun!

      Starting first is often seen as better than going second, in spite of the extra card and The Coin that you receive at the start of the game. This is due to the loss of tempo from the missing mana. Although the difference in win rates is quite small, it still can be felt, especially in Aggro vs Aggro matchups, where going first results in a significant advantage.
      Who goes first is decided by quite literally a coin flip—it is decided randomly, visualised by a coin toss. There is no way to affect whether you go first or second. However, you can mitigate the effects of the coin toss by playing a deck that is not affected as much by going first or second.

      Both players get to play as Deathstalker Rexxar, the Hunter Death Knight!
      It's time to experience how powerful Deathstalker Rexxar is; the hero card is, after all, included in some of the best decks of the current meta like Spell and Recruit Hunter.
      The Hero Power is free in this Tavern Brawl, so you can use it all you want. It's better to use it first on your turn and it really tests your skill as you need to craft the proper Zombeast for the situation you are in. Your deck will also be filled with various random Zombeasts, as well as Hunter cards. Lastly, you will start at 3 mana.
      Games can last long and your hand will be quite full most of the time, so be careful not to overdraw.
      This Tavern Brawl is part of the Taverns of Time event. Good luck!
