hearthstone Mean Streets of Gadgetzan: All Cards Revealed

15 posts in this topic

QKtjpVU.jpg

Earlier on PlayHearthstone's Twitch channel, the rest of the Mean Streets of Gadgetzan cards were revealed. They also confirmed that the release date for the set will be December 1.

Frodan teamed up with Matt Place to play a series of show matches to reveal the new cards. The decks played where we could see the players' hand were: Grimy Goons Warrior, Reno Mage, Jade Golem Druid, and Reno Warlock.

The two things that stood out the most during the games, were that Grimy Goons decisions about whether to buff a Minion or to play your cards out look complex, and that Jade Golems look really powerful if you can stretch the game out long enough.

Things we learned:

The card symbol for each gang changes colour depending on which class is playing the card.

When Grimy Goons effects buff a card in hand, the opponent can see the which card is buffed.

The Spell generated with Kazakus can't produce the same effect twice.

The cards are available to view on Hearthstone's official facebook page. The VoD of the event is available here.

I'm really glad they didn't stretch this out. They said "early December" and it's hard to be earlier than the first day! With so many releases left I was worried we would be stuck a couple weeks still.

Druid Jade Golem looks really strong .. I'm wondering if like Hex/ Poly/ Tink/ Entomb stop C'thun from respawning via Doomcaller, will similar effects reset the Jade Golem mechanic .. 

Also entombing a 9/9 Jade Golem will it give a 9/9 or a 1/1?

In my mind, this shows that they have lots more planned for the future and so they are able to release things in a proper, timely fashion. Really glad to see it happening.

I would assume it works as entombing C'Thun does.

I'm assuming you would get a 9/9. Unlike C'thun, which gains buffs, it looks like the jade golem generates a larger version each time with a new casting cost, not buffed

Exactly. The summoning phase is the one deciding how big will the Jade Golem be. Once it is a 6 mana 6/6, it will stay as a 6 mana 6/6. If it is returned by a Freezing Trap, it will be 8 mana 6/6.

So if a Jade Golem was destroyed/resummoned by a moat lurker, it would come back as the same size that was destroyed? or the next size larger?

From what I have read, the Jade Golem will come back in the size it left the board (when it was destroyed by Moat Lurker), except for buffs, of course.
So, if Moat Lurker destroys a 7/7 Jade Golem, the Golem should come back as a 7/7.

As far as I understand after you summon the first jade golem it automatically changes the card scripts of the jade golem cards to summon the next higher up golem, so unless Hex/Poly/ Tink over write that script I think its a scary mechanic ..

So many questions regarding the mechanics of this so unclear ..

I am very interested in one thing - should I shadowstep a jade golem, will playing him give +1\+1 to the next jade golem?

It seems likely that this will be the case.

From what I've seen, no.  Its not the jade golems themselves that ramp up the size, but the cards that create them.  

So Shadowstepping a 7/7 jade golem gives you a 7/7 jade golem card in hand with no bonus to your next one.  But play a Jade Spirit to get a 7/7 golem means the next card that creates a golem makes an 8/8 one. Shadowstep the Jade Spirit and the next time you play it gets you that 8/8.

Yep, pretty much this. 

The big mistake I made when looking into it pre-expansion was the same as others. I wasn't thinking in terms of cards, but minions instead!

      The Europe Spring Playoffs and Championship took place over the weekend of May 20-21, which decided not only the new Europe Champion, but also the four players who would represent Europe at the Global Spring Championship in Shanghai next month.
      After seven rounds of Swiss, the top eight players cut to a knockout phase. The results of which were as follows:
        Hoej beat   FibEli3
        Neirea beat   INER
        Rdu beat   Casie
        Kolento beat   StanCifka
      This means that Hoej, Neirea, Rdu, and Kolento will represent Europe in the Global Championship. The top eight being so strong is a sign that the metagame is in a healthy place. All of the players were already known to be among the best in Europe, and despite their lineups differing substantially, they were still able to make it through.
      Hoej went on to take the title, beating Kolento 3-0 in the final. Hoej has been touted as one of the best players in Europe for some time, but traditionally has brought Control decks to major events. This time around, he brought a very aggressive lineup, and was rewarded for his willingness to adapt his style to the meta.
      The deck archetypes that each player brought to the event are listed below:
      Hoej: Aggro Druid, Secret Mage, Murloc Paladin, Pirate Warrior
      Kolento: Jade Druid, Midrange Paladin, Quest Rogue, Quest Warrior
      Neirea: Jade Druid, Discover Mage, Quest Rogue, Quest Warrior
      Rdu: Aggro Druid, Face Hunter, Aggro Shaman, Pirate Warrior
      The next four players to qualify for the Global Championship will be decided next week, with the Americas Spring Championships.

      The Hearthstone Championship Tour (HCT) European Spring Playoffs will take place this weekend, 20-21 May 2017.
      This will be the first playoff event since Journey to Un'Goro was released, and so if anyone has saved any surprise deck tech, this is the event where it will be revealed.
      The top 64 point earners, and ties, from the EU server will be joined by 8 Tavern Hero tournament qualifiers for the event, which will be played in esports bars across Europe. If you want to attend one of the events to cheer on your local favourite, the list of locations can be found here. There will be side events for anyone wishing to attend, with Blizzard prizes available for winners, and the Power Core cardback for all attendees.
      The point standings, showing the top 64, can be found here. As usual the event is stacked with many of the big names from the region. The top four will advance to the HCT Spring Global finals next month.

      Fight Promoter is promoting Hearthstone by giving itself away! Ok, that didn't make sense, but the point is everyone gets a fee card for just logging in this Saturday!
      Blizzard (source)
      Yeah, we can get you a card. Really! Log in to Hearthstone on Saturday, May 20, to get a Fight Promoter card for free!

      No catch, just a free card--so don’t miss out.
      We’ll see you in the tavern!

      There's a new update arriving in the coming weeks and it's going to bring a much requested feature to HS: completing quests while playing with your friends! The other big feature coming with this update is importing decklists, allowing you to easily copy and share your favorite decks without resorting to screenshots or outside sites! No specific ETA has been given and if you want to know all the details check out the announcement post below.
      Blizzard (source)
      Hearthstone’s upcoming update has a lot of cool stuff in it, but we wanted to call special attention to a couple of features that we’re particularly excited about. We think you’ll like them too!

      Friends Forever
      When the new Hearthstone update arrives, you’ll be able to complete quests in Friendly Challenges! Just issue a Friendly Challenge to someone on your Friends list and rack up credit for nearly any quest you can receive.
      Last year, the Friendly Feud allowed players to complete quests when they played with a friend. You gave us a ton of positive feedback about that event, and a lot of you asked us to have Friendly Feuds more often. We thought that was a good idea, so we took it a step further!
      There are some minor caveats. For example, any quests that can’t be completed as part of a Friendly Challenge aren’t eligible, such as those that require you to play vs The Innkeeper or watch a match. Most everything else is fair game though, so now you’ll have a reason to make friends with a recent opponent that isn’t just to send them a compliment.
      Sharing is Caring
      You’ll soon be able to easily copy and share decklists with Deck Importing! No more screen shotting decklists, or staring at a web page as you carefully build a deck, card by card. Trying—and sharing—a new decklist will be as simple as copy and paste!

      Here’s how it works:
      If your deck is already full, when you select the Hero portrait at the top of a deck in your collection, you’ll see a Copy button*. Press that button and your decklist will be copied to your clipboard. If you paste your decklist into a text document, it will look like this:
      Click to view sample decklist. See that conveniently highlighted ‘code’ near the bottom? That code also works on its own, making it easier to share a decklist with friends in chat or social media.
      Importing a decklist is easy. When you go to create the new deck, Hearthstone will “know” when you’ve got a valid decklist on your clipboard, so you’ll be asked if you’d like to create a new deck with the one you’ve got copied. Then you can watch your new deck be built before your eyes. You can also import decklists to Tavern Brawls!
      Don’t have all the cards a deck requires? No worries! In that case, it works just like a deck recipe. Any cards you don’t already own will appear insubstantial and you can select them for suggested replacements. You might also notice that your golden and non-golden cards now stack in decklists too!

      Deck Importing is great for finding and sharing new decks, but it’s also helpful for managing your library of decks. Save the code for decklists you rarely use, and when you’re ready to play one again, just copy and import it.
      The new update including these features will arrive in the coming weeks. We’re super excited about them, and we can’t wait to hear what you think! 
      * Desktop users can use ctrl+c to copy a decklist (you’ll get a confirmation when your copy is successful), then ctrl+v when viewing My Decks to import a decklist.
