Mean Streets of Gadgetzan: Preview of Revealed Neutral Cards

15 posts in this topic

The next expansion, Mean Streets of Gadgetzan, has been announced, and many of the cards have been spoiled already. This preview discusses the neutral announced cards from the first day. There are nine of these cards, bringing the total previewed so far to thirty.

As always with neutral cards, several of them are very unexciting. I have got those out of the way in the first image.

It is hard to see the above cards making much of an impact when put into decks. They will make a small difference on cards such as Maelstrom Portal and Moonglade Portal though.

These three cards don't seem to be very good, but I have put them in a separate image as there is at least interesting text on them. I don't think any of these would see play in the game as we know it, but there is potential for them to have synergy with other new cards or deck archetypes.

People like to build Murloc decks, and testing out Finja will be something that Murloc fans will be looking forward to. The effect is very powerful, but there is no guarantee that Finja will be able to kill a minion. Finja will need damage support to make sure that this happens, and at five mana, it might just be a little slow. Against some control decks, the opponent will simply not play a minion, which will mean five mana has been spent on a 2/4.

Patches the Pirate seems a strong and natural addition to Pirate decks. The extra damage and the small amount of deck thinning make him a clear choice in those decks.

Other cards:

The preview for the Grimy Goons Cards can be found here.

I wouldn't quite call Mistress of Mixtures unexciting tbh as its stats are pretty much top of the 1-mana list and healing for 4 isn nothing to scoff at either.

Big-time racketeer seems pretty strong when paired with Brann.

Everything else all seems pretty 'meh' to me.

I confess I'd missed the Brann interaction.

I don't like Mistress because you'd want her in an aggro deck, but I feel the healing is a proper downside. She's no Zombie Chow imo. Will be interesting to see who's right. More than comfortable being wrong, that's the fun for everyone reading card previews right?

He'd clearly be a fit in the current Pirate Aggro deck at least. Turn 1 N'Zoth's First MateThe CoinSouthsea Deckhand (which is already a nice opening) and Patches show up to start steamrolling harder. And even if you mulligan him, he won't be wasted since he can serve as a cheap activator for Bloodsail Cultist

YARR, MATEYS! SHIP AND PLUNDER AHOY!

Now to only get your hands/paws/claws/tentacles/whatever on him...

I was thinking rather opposite for Mistress, you want her as anti-aggro. I used to play a fair bit of anti-aggro priest and this card would go beautifully in it.

I thought the 2 health would be a deal breaker, will be interesting to see :)

Edit: and I can see you being right, I did think that they might put Raven in slower Druids when it was printed, even though it's clearly aimed at Beast Druid.

I'll try to give my opinions on the spoiled cards and rate them, using this scale :
 

Spoiler

 

A : Obviously powerful, a multi-archetype staple, perhaps, a format-defining card.  (Tunnel Trogg, Fiery War Axe, Piloted Shredder);

B: A decent card, your typical "bread and butter"; archetype staple; reliable niche card (Blackwing Corruptor, Cult Sorcerer, Blood To Ichor, Acidic Swamp Ooze);

C: A mediocre or weak card that is a filler, outclassed by its peers or has a niche that's not reliable (Eater of Secrets; Stampeding Kodo;Stranglethorn Tiger; Infested Tauren);

D: It has seen play. Once. Something that's just really not great, but can occasionally make it in a meme deck, or via "get a random card" things. (Cone of Cold; Bloodsail Corsair; Starfall);

F: Striclty unplayable. It exists to brick your random effect cards. (Shatter; Wisp; Purify; Captain's Parrot).

 

Ratings are purely subjective, and, of course, opened up to debate. But I'll try to back them up with reasonable explainations.

One big thing to note is that I'll be giving two ratings - one for the current Standard, and one for going forward, in 2017-2018.

I'm actually much more excited about the Neutral cards, because they cause more impact in the long run. Here we have a mix of cool Arena filler and some hidden gems.

Big-Time Racketeer

Nothing to look at here, really. Boulderfist Ogre is excellent in the Arena but it's completely unplayable in Constructed. Brann can find more flexible buddies to gang up with, that could hold their own ground.

Verdict : D

Second-rate Bruiser

We're having a very solid beater here. Even a Sen'jin Shieldmasta is not unplayable, and this guy is bigger, it can be played at a discount, and what aggresive decks do for the first three turns is usually play dudes, so it's consistent. We know how powerful undercosted cards are and how good is Taunt - looking at you, Thing from Below - so I expect this to be outrageously popular, at least during the opening weeks of Mean Streets.

Verdict : A. I would give it a B+, but it looks so good it can be even Wild playable, not to mention it's a Neutral card. This fact puts it over the top for me.

Friendly Bartender and Mistress of Mixtures.

I'll talk these two together, because they are fairly similar card, and together with Second-rate Bruiser they form up what looks like an anti-Aggro core of a sort. I know there is a lot of negative coming on Aggro decks, how stupid they are and how popular they are, and so these look like a response from Blizzard. I like the direction they took with Bruiser, but Bartender and Mistress are much more niche. Straight damage decks are not that popular - Face Hunter and Pirate Shaman are the only true followers of the Philosophy of Fire. Zoo, Shamans and Dragon Warrior are much more tempo and board oriented. Health is important against them, but not as much as board control. Adding healing cards is not going to instantly fix all the problems slower decks have, because it's not about healing. This is a help, nonetheless, I just want to state my position on it - it's not panacea.

Now, Bartender looks pretty bad, and he is, in fact, but here is what I keep thinking about : it's just because River Crocolisk is bad right now. We have a lot of 1/3s that 2/3 does not beat and then cards that are just bigger. 3 damage to beat 1/3s is here, so Crocs die easily, and then we have Bloodfen Raptor in fifteen different flavors that keeps being played because it beats 1/3s. Just take a trip down he memory lane and venture into the Dark Age, where the most popular 2-drop was Shielded Minibot. Paladin was everywhere, but you know what - Croc eats robots for dinner. That's how Druid adopted Darnassus Aspirant and it was good at the time. That's why Zombie Chowwas so good. Would we have a 2/2 as dominant metagame force (which we can have in the future), then I could see Bartender being all-star. But it is not right now.

Mistress kinda falls into the same pits. She is a bad version of Zombie Chow stat-wise, but she heals your face. Given the fact we don't have Zombie Chow or just a reliable early-game card for Control strategies, she can find more use just based on the fact her niche is absolutely empty. Healing is not exactly important, as I said, but when you have all the other tools - sweepers, late game, etc - it can work, it can form a coherent gameplan altogether.

Verdict : Bartender gets a C for now, C+ in '17-'18. Mistress gets a B- right now, with a potential to be a straight B  in '17-'18.

Kooky Chemist

He reminds me of Crazed Alchemist the same way Dark Iron Dwarf reminds me of Abusive Sergeant. The big difference, however, is that pumps are more consistent than stat swaps. Alchemist sees a resurgence in play because it's fairly cost efficient and you still don't mind the swap not being perfect because you pay only 2 mana. With Kooky Chemist, it's pretty overcosted. Dat abs, tho.

Verdict : A is for Abs D.

Wind-up Burglebot

No. Statline is awful, manacost is big, and he doesn't even Burgle. He draws cards. That's a fail-fail here.

Verdict : D.

Fel Orc Soulfiend

This one is at least interesting. It starts of with impressive stats and then goes to a Blackwing Technician size. Technician is pretty good in terms of raw stat power, but this guy keeps taking damage, which sorta defeats the purpose of a big statline card. He is like a reverse Injured Blademaster, but the Blademaster at least has his niche with Priest in Resurrect and Circle of Healing. I'll pass but he deserves at least a C for his impressive numbers and possible synergies with buff cards.

Verdict : C

Finja, The Flying Star

This is hands down my favorite card in Hearthstone now. I mean, come on! He is a Murloc, he is a Ninja and he kicks ass with fish daggers! I agree it's hard to kill something with 2 attack, but fetching Murloc Warleader or Murloc Knight is going to be big swings anyways. I won't bet he makes it into a format staple, but a fair Murloc meme deck will be the best thing ever, period. Finally, a guilty pleasure worthy of my skills.

Verdict : M is Memes and Murlocs C. Let's be honest about it.

Patches the Pirate

I read somewhere that this guy should have been in TGT but was benched because of his synergies with Ship's Cannon and One-eyed Cheat from GvG. Keep in mind these cards still exist in the Wild, so Pirate Rogue is alive and kicking more than ever. This is going to be a meme deck to rival even the Fair Murloc Paladin! And yeah, it's Standard playable as a free Stonetusk Boar, but with anti-Aggro support given, I'm not sure if Pirate Warrior is going to make any splash going forward.

Verdict : C+ in Wild, C in Standard.

Why no love for second rate Bruiser? The meta right now has a lot of "Red Deck Wins" elements (IE rush), and this guy seems to be a very nice turn 3 roadblock to them busting out of the gates fast. Even if the reduced mana cost doesn't come into play, a 4/5 taunt for 5 is "solid".

Finja is hard to evaluate without seeing other murloc cards of the set (if any)

I can see him being used in Anyfin paladin because he is a great way to get your murlocs from the bottom of your deck. There are a problem that he messes with the second anyfin but if the match up requires 30 damage second anyfin you usually have then you can allow yourself to  treat him as a dead card.

Isn't Patches The Pirate good for rogues that want to draws their combo pieces sooner? Swashburglar = minus one card in your deck + Living Roots with one of them having charge +  free random card. Even if you are unfortunate to draw Patches the Pirate before Swashburglar rogues have ways to use a Stonetusk Boar

It'll basically just depend on what you're facing lots of, I'm sure. It'll be one of those cards that you have to choose to include depending on what you play. Vs. Aggro, awesome, it can clear 2 minions possibly. Vs. control, it'll probably just die.

I mostly agree.  I think mistress is a little better then you give her credit for, and I think the soulfiend could be good.  It has the possibility of replacing the blademaster in priest decks, which would make it very strong, on the other hand, if it turns out to be an inferior card (which would be my guess but I still see the potential) it is going to be unplayable.

I'd agree on Soulfiend. I think he fills a nice point in the game for Priest vs. Control decks. Control decks don't always have that early minion for you to trade into, but it means you can continue to draw with Northshire, for example, without needing to sit there and trade into anything.

I think Fel Orc Soulfiend could fill the spot when Imp Gang Boss rotates out, and possibly could be used even now in place of filler cards, such as Bilefin Tidehunter or Forbidden Ritual. There will possibly be better cards for zoo in the set, but as I see it, there will at least be players that will try the card out, should it not be an auto-inclusion.

      Bosses from various Hearthstone adventure battle it out in this week's Tavern Brawl.
      This is the second time we see Boss Battle Royale 2, which itself is a variation of the original Tavern Brawl. This time, we have a new Druid hero and the Warlock hero Sindragosa has been slightly nerfed.
      You pick a class and then you get a specific boss hero, which has its special hero power and a predetermined deck:
      Druid: King Togwaggle (Magic Candle: 3 mana - Find a Treasure) Hunter: Skelesaurus Hex (Ancient Power: 0 mana - Give each player a random cards. It costs 0) Mage: The Curator (Gallery Protection: Passive - Your Hero has Taunt) Paladin: White King (Castle: 2 mana - Discover a chess piece) Priest: Professor Putricide (Mad Science: Passive - All Secrets cost 0) Shaman: Lady Naz'jar (Pearl of the Tides: At the end of your turn, replace all minions with new ones that cost 1 more) Rogue: Grobbulus (Poison Cloud: 2 mana - Deal 1 damage to all minions. If any die, summon a slime) Warlock: Sindragosa (Ice Claw: 2 mana - Do 2 damage. There will be 2 Blocks of Ice on your opponent's side of the board at the beginning of the game) Warrior: Coren Direbrew (Pile On!: 0 mana - Put a minion from each deck into the battlefield) Sindragosa is pretty powerful. Lady Naz'jar, Coren Direbrew and Skelesaurus Hex have random effects that can benefit your opponent - Lady Naz'jar seem to have more success than the other two. Grobbulus can work too, if you play smartly.
      Good luck!

      The details for this year's Hallow's End festivities have been revealed.
      As already known from update 12.2, Hallow's End will return from October 17 until October 31. During that time, upon logging in you will receive a free Golden Witch's Cauldron and a free Arena ticket.
      You can use that ticket to enter the Dual Class Arena event. You will choose a Hero, then the Hero Power of another Hero and you will make a deck consisting of both Heroes' class cards and neutral cards. If you have an Arena run in progress when Hallow’s End begins on October 17, then it will be retired and you’ll receive the normal rewards for the number of wins you achieved and a free Arena ticket.
      We'll have two Tavern Brawls during Hallow's end. During the first week (October 17-22), there will be a new Tavern Brawl called Monster Smash. You will get randomly assigned one of six Monster Hunt villains with a premade deck. The other Tavern Brawl (October 24-29) is the one we saw last year as well, The Headless Horseman Rides Again!
      Lastly, the new Paladin Hero, Sir Annoy-o, will be available as a bundle along with 20 Witchwood card packs. The pricing of the bundle is still unknown.
      Daxxarri
      It’s the Headless Horseman’s favorite time of year, and he’s returning to the Hearthstone tavern from October 17 through October 31 to host another a blowout Hallow’s End celebration for everyone! If you dare to brave a tavern decked in delightfully dreary decorations, you’ll find that your horrific host has also planned some spine-tingling treats and chilling challenges!
       
      Tempting Treats
      The Headless Horseman is handing out ghoulish goodies just for logging in! Log in between October 17 and 10 p.m. PDT on October 31 to receive a free golden Witch’s Cauldron card and an Arena ticket.

       
      The Great Hallow’s End Arena Costume Party
      During Hallow’s End you can experience dual class Arena* with an added twist: Each of the nine classic Hearthstone Heroes will be attending in costume!

       
      When you start an Arena run during Hallow’s End, you’ll choose a Hero, then a Hero Power, and the cards offered in your picks will feature cards from BOTH of those classes, in addition to neutral cards. And don’t forget, you’ll get a free Arena ticket just for logging in, so there’s no excuse not to attend the party!
       
      TWO Tricky Tavern Brawls!
      Monster Smash is a special Hallow’s End Tavern Brawl that will run from October 17 to Oct. 22.
       
      Wise monster hunters avoid the haunted wood during Hallow’s End, so the creepy creatures of the Witchwood are taking the opportunity to find out which among them is the strongest! Take control of a monster from The Witchwood’s Monster Hunt single-player mission and SMASH the competition!

       
      The Headless Horseman Rides Again is a special Hallow’s End Tavern Brawl that will run from Oct. 24 to 29.
       
      The Headless Horseman has been marauding through the countryside, and it’s up to you to stop him! You’ll go in disguise to catch the fiend by surprise—after the Brawl begins, you’ll get to Discover which costume you’ll wear. Each costume has its own deck featuring cards from several classes and a passive Hero Power that you’ll need to make the most of if you want to succeed at sinking the sinister specter!

       
      Hallow! Hallow! Bundle
      While the creatures of the Witchwood stir, and townsfolk cower during the fearful fun of Hallow’s End, Sir Annoy-o remains ever undaunted! He doesn’t even know what a daunt is! Say HELLO! HELLO! HELLO! to the new Paladin Hero and add 20 The Witchwood card packs to your collection when you buy the Hallow! Hallow! Bundle.
       


       
      There’s a feast of fearsome fun to be had at the Headless Horseman’s Hallow’s End hootenanny. Don’t forget to check out a Hallow’s End Fireside Gatherings Tavern near you and get Nemsy Necrofizzle as the celebration continues!
       
      We hope you’ll join us, and we wish you a HAPPY HALLOW’S END!

       
      * NOTE: If you have an Arena run in progress when Hallow’s End begins on October 17, then it will be retired and you’ll receive the normal rewards for the number of wins you achieved and a free Arena ticket. In the hours just before the beginning and conclusion of Hallow’s End on October 17 and October 31, the ability to purchase a new Arena ticket will be temporarily disabled.

      Some balance changes will be made next week and they will be announced before the reset, on Monday 15 of October.
      It's difficult to guess which cards will be targeted, but there has been a lot of talk about Giggling Inventor lately.
      Here's the announcement of the announcement:
