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!

      Dave Kosak introduces us to the Monster Hunt, which will be available in a week.
      The Lead Mission Designer was joined by two of his associates to discuss the newest PvE mode, which will come along with The Witchwood. Paul Nguyen talked about the four heroes. Tess Greymane has a Hero Power that lets her Discover any class card that has been played in a game (by both players) and add it to your hand.
      Darius Crowley has an indestructible cannon minion that can be activated via Darius' Hero Power and fire at the minions across it. Positioning will matter, as you can kill two enemy minions at once and the Hero Power will refresh each time you kill a minion with your cannon. There weren't any details on Houndmaster Shaw or Toki, Time-Tinker, but it was hinted that the former hero will have something to do with Rush (just like its card counterpart).
      Giovanni Scarpati discussed bosses and treasures. The Monster Hunt will feature over 45 unique boss encounters. As Ben Brode had revealed in an earlier interview, each hero will have its own final boss, called "nemesis fight". For Crowley it's Lord Godfrey, for Shaw it's Glinda Crowskin and for Toki it's her own future self! When you clear the Monster Hunt with all four heroes (and win four packs), you get to face Hagatha as the last boss. Ultimately, as far as the treasures are concerned, there are a few returning ones from the Dungeon Run, but most are new. There are also hero exclusive treasures, as well as unique treasures "dropping" from rare boss encounters.
      You should definitely watch the video to get a glimpse of all the new stuff coming with the Monster Hunt. And don't forget: it's release date is April 26 at 10:00 am PDT!
      Daxxarri
      Start stocking up on vials of holy water and cannonballs, because The Witchwood’s free, single-player missions, the Monster Hunt, goes live on April 26 at 10:00 a.m. PDT!
      Join Lead Mission Designer Dave Kosak, along with Mission Designers Paul Nguyen and Giovanni Scarpati, for a Hearthside Chat that will equip you with everything you need to know for a successful Monster Hunt!
      Ready for Action
      If you played the Dungeon Run in Kobolds & Catacombs, the Monster Hunt will be eerily familiar—but much is different! Rather than choosing one of Hearthstone’s nine classes, you’ll take on the role of one of four veteran monster hunters, each with a special ability that you’ll need to make the most of if you hope to survive the hunt.
      Your hunter will venture deep into the Witchwood on Hagatha’s trail, defeating a series of monstrous bosses who dare to cross your path. With each victory, you’ll build a stronger and stronger deck with the items you find. You may encounter some trusty old equipment out in the forest, but much of what you’ll find will be entirely new, including treasures unique to certain foes. Each monster hunter has their own favorite tricks—a special hero power or ability that you’ll need to master if you hope to survive the hunt. Each hunter also carries a grudge against a heinous nemesis in the woods: a unique boss that only they can track down to fight.

      You’ll want to go on a Monster Hunt with every hunter, because each offers a quest that will earn you a Witchwood card pack. And if you’ve got the mettle to complete the Monster Hunt with all four hunters, you’ll finally have a chance to face off with the real witch in the woods: Hagatha! If you can free the wood from Hagatha’s curse, you’ll earn the gratitude of Gilneas and the Monster Hunter card back!

      We hope you enjoyed learning more of what lurks ahead in Monster Hunt! We’re eager to hear your tales of The Witchwood on social media using the #Witchwood hashtag. Learn more about The Witchwood at TheWitchwood.com!
      We’ll see you on the hunt!
