Patch 7.0, the update that introduces Mean Streets of Gadgetzan, is now available.

Although included in the update, the cards will not be available to put into decks until December 1. The official notes page also takes the time to remind us of the classes associated with each family, and therefore, the Tri-Class cards. They are as follows:

The Grimy Goons: Hunter, Paladin, Warrior

The Kabal: Mage, Priest, Warlock

The Jade Lotus: Druid, Rogue, Shaman

There is also one card back per month for the next three months to represent each of the three gangs in Gadgetzan. There is also a mysterious quote of  "And perhaps one more card back to come, should the stars align. . ." Hinting at even more flavour still to come. The new game board is also included in the update.


The card backs below will be released in December, January and February. They represent the Jade Lotus, The Grimy Goons, and the Kabal respectively.


The rest of the notes are listed below.

Blizzard LogoPatch 7.0

A search for missing in the Collection Manager will now automatically switch you to Crafting Mode and find any cards that you are missing or don’t already own two or more copies of.

Several cards now properly generate a history tile when played.

We’ve implemented numerous AI improvements and bug fixes.

We fixed a client issue that could occur when playing multiple spells while Archmage Antonidas is in play.

We fixed a Spectator Mode issue that could occur when Raven Idol is played.

Various UI & text issues have been resolved.

It is also now possible to read the flavour texts of the new cards in Crafting Mode. Many of them are funny, and there are too many good ones to list. Let us know your favourite in the comments below!

White Eye: My life for Aya!

Unfortunately, the simplified Chinese translation does not reflect this terrier

The word Hearthstone in the loading screen seems to shine (hah) now. Is this a new thing or have I just never noticed it before?

They removed "Heroes of Warcraft", so it probably changed.

      This week's episode features a fresh take on a popular deck, courtesy of Casie.
      Can you guess the next move?
      Situation #22: Let's Even the Odds
      Picking up where we left off last week, we find ourselves in the middle of an odd/even matchup between Warlock and Shaman. I picked this situation partially because it was an interesting spot with many options available to us, and also because its a ladder situation I highly doubt any of my readers have encountered before:

      Commenters quickly identified several key factors about this matchup, namely that Defile and Hellfire are off the table for our opponent and that the only "board clear" available for our opponent is Despicable Dreadlord. Our opponent is more likely to have single target removal (such as Voodoo Doll) or is looking to play a demon-related 5 drop next turn in Skull of the Man'ari, Possessed Lackey, or Doomguard.
      Bozonik summed up this situation excellently in his comment from last week's thread:
      There seemed to be a consensus among commenters that "Option 1", Hero Power + Sea Giant was the line here. It puts a big nasty minion on the board, applying pressure and forcing our opponent to have Voodoo Doll. In the heat of the moment I went with "Option 2", the full clear, but after looking back on things and reading over the comments I believe Hero Power + Giant was the correct line. Despicable Dreadlord is really the only card which gives us serious trouble next turn (since our opponent won't be able to play Possessed Lackey and kill it) and this line plays around Dreadlord while applying just as much pressure as the other options.
      I was secretly hoping that the tap + Giant wasn't the correct line here (because its the most obvious one), but the obvious solution is often the correct one. If you're ever in a situation such as this where you have no idea what your opponent is up to, it's probably best to go for the "obvious" line and not get cute.
      Situation #23: Broken Mirrors
      Today's deck comes courtesy of Kevin "Casie" Eberlein, who cut the dragon package from Mind Blast Priest to turn the deck into something with much more of a combo/aggro feel to it. Many pros are pegging Mind Blast Priest to be the next "best deck in the meta" after the nerfs drop, and Casie's list has a serious advantage in the mirror match:
      Though I didn't find nearly as much success with the deck as Casie did, it did provide me with plenty of interesting situations for What's the Move! Here's the one I ended up choosing for this week's episode:

      It's turn 2, we're on The Coin, and our ladder opponent just played a Wild Pyromancer. For the purposes of this exercise, we can say that we're 100% confident our opponent is on Mind Blast Priest. However, this isn't a mirror match at all. We have Prophet Velen, Holy Smite, two copies of Holy Fire (most Mind Blast Priests run just one), and Lifedrinker in our deck, which gives us a huge advantage in late-game Anduin vs Anduin races. Knowing that we have an advantage in the late game should color our decision heavily on turn two, where have a surprising number of options available to us.
      So, what's the move?
