And it's finally here! The latest additions to Hearthstone's ever expanding card library have hit the streets and you can start playing with them right now!

Blizzard LogoBlizzard

Hearthstone’s newest expansion, Mean Streets of Gadgetzan, is now available! The fragile truce between the city’s three crime families has been shattered, and now the rowdy Grimy Goons, the volatile Kabal, and the secretive Jade Lotus want you to choose sides! Fill your decks with 132 powerful new cards and take the fight to an all new game board in a rough-and-tumble turf war for the city of Gadgetzan.


Big City

Under Mayor Noggenfogger’s ambitious guidance, and with the help of some very questionable allies, Gadgetzan has blossomed from a sleepy little desert waystation into a full-blown, sprawling port city. Noggenfogger modernized and expanded, securing Gadgetzan’s place as a world-class capital of commerce. Despite its booming economy, Gadgetzan is no utopia—it’s got WAY more than its fair share of crime. From Grime Street to the docks, no part of town is safe from the power struggle that’s about to unfold.

Big Trouble

The crime families that helped transform Gadgetzan now rule the streets, but this burg isn’t big enough for all three of them. Now they’re aiming to push the competition out of town and claim Gadgetzan for themselves, and they want to recruit YOU to the cause!

Ready to get your hands dirty? Good! There are 132 all-new Hearthstone cards in Mean Streets of Gadgetzan up for grabs, including 9 new tri-class cards. Like the crime families that host them, these special neutral class minions break the rules, so each can be used by three different classes instead of just one. The Legendary boss of each crime family is also a tri-class card!

The Grimy Goons

These tough guys are an association of the Warriors, Hunters, and Paladins of Gadgetzan. When you spot a crossed pair of spiked clubs on a Grimy Goons tri-class card, backup is on the way. Mugging, extortion, robbery, and a long list of other strong-arm crimes are the delight of the Grimy Goons, a mob of toughs headed up by the two-headed ogre Don Han’Cho.

The Grimy Goons specialize in weapons smuggling, and a smart Goon always grabs a little something extra before a rumble. Many Grimy Goons cards buff the minions in your hand who are waiting to join the fray. With massive arsenals stashed all over the city, the Goons can go from a motley crew of two-bit thugs to an unstoppable army at the drop of a coin.

The Kabal

The Kabal’s symbol is a potion bottle, and you’ll be able to fit Kabal tri-class cards into Mage, Priest, and Warlock decks. Illegal magic and a mind-boggling array of potions are the specialty of the Kabal, outcast spellcasters loyal to the mysterious master alchemist Kazakus. If you’re willing to create decks that contain no duplicates, you’ll gain the aid of some of this faction’s most potent members. . . at the cost of some predictability.

Power at any price is the Kabal’s motto, and with a colorful assortment of literally crazed spellcasters at his command—and more joining the ranks every day—Kazakus’ Kabal is an erratic and highly volatile force in the city.

The Jade Lotus

You’ll recognize their tri-class cards by the stylized lotus flower symbol, and you’ll be able to slip them into Rogue, Druid, and Shaman decks. Directed in secret by Aya Blackpaw, the mysterious Jade Lotus crime family was the subject of much rumor and speculation amongst the delinquent denizens of the city, but the true power of the Jade Lotus is about to be unveiled.

They’ve harnessed ancient magic to unleash Jade Golems—living statues that become more and more powerful each time one is summoned. Aya Blackpaw has created an army of these golems for her devoted followers, and the Jade Lotus will soon show everyone in Gadgetzan what it is to face a truly unstoppable foe!

This Is Our Town, Scrub

Gadgetzan is a prize worth fighting for—and the royal rumble between kingpins of crime has just begun! It’s time to pick and side and join the fight, so let us know which family you’ll be signing on with for first using the #Gadgetzan hashtag. You can also find out what’s waiting for you down the dark alleys of Gadgetzan on our official Facebook gallery.

It's new blizzard bug( Waiting for fix on Europe.

Do you mean that it doesn't show up on EU server? If so, you will have to wait as the expansion hasn't been released here yet.

There is currently a known bug where tri-class cards are being opened at a much greater rate than other cards, resulting in some players opening, just as an example, 10+ of tri-class commons without completing the common set out of 60+ packs. 

Pack contents are determined when opened, so if you have some banked packs, do not fear. However, it seems best to not open packs right away until this issue is looked into a little more. 

The official Hearthstone Twitter posts confirm this is a bug and they are aware of it.

I think ive become way too dependent on this sites decks...roughly when will the updates on the gadgetzan cards in the decks can be completed?

Our authors are working around the clock and are uploading new decks and updating the old ones as often as possible without the loss of quality. My estimate is 2-4 weeks, just like usual. Is there a specific deck you are interested in?

I think the aim of Sottle was to make sure that there was 1 of each deck to complete the initial quests with. There are now more updates trickling in and more decks!

      A callback to Annoy-o-Tron, this new Mech card could be a serious player in the meta.
       
      Episode 2 of "Enter Boom Labs" has revealed another new Magnetic card from The Boomsday Project, called Annoy-o-Module:
       

       
      A callback to Annoy-o-Tron, this guy gains Magnetic and 1/2 worth of stats for just 2 Mana! The stats and keywords this card instantly adds to another Mech seem quite strong when you compare it to Blessing of Kings, which adds 2 more Attack to a minion but does not add Divine Shield and Taunt. This card isn't awful when played on it's own, and it plays well in a deck with Corpsetaker. Annoy-o-Module checks enough for boxes for me, and I full expect it to see play in the upcoming meta.
      Episode 2 of "Enter Boom Labs" is short but sweet, and you can watch the full video right here:
       
       
      Do you think Annoy-o-Module impact the game as much as Annoy-o-Tron did? Let us know in the comment section, and be sure to check out our Boomsday Hub for more spoilers from the upcoming expansion.

      Use Mini-Rag to destroy enemy minions and level up your"Wow!" emote in this week's Tavern Brawl.
       
      In celebration of The Midsummer Fire Festival, this week's Tavern Brawl is all about Ragnaros, Lightlord. Well, Mini-Rag to be more specific:
       

       
      A 2/3 Ragnaros with Immune will start the game on one side of the board. At the end of each turn, Mini-Rag will deal 1 damage to a random target on the other side of the board for each Attack he has, then swap to the other side of the board. Each time he kills an enemy minion he will gain 1 Attack, growing in power as the game progresses.
       

       
      Due to the sudden pressure that Mini-Rag applies to both players, I highly recommend playing an Aggro deck. I used Odd Rogue in my first game to take down an Odd Hunter. You could also play an anti-aggro deck to try and counter all the aggro decks running around, but be sure to play some self-healing such as Branching Paths or Healing Rain.
       

       
      The Tavern Brawl will track how many minion kills that Mini-Rag racks up. After 8, 30, and 60 Minion kills, you will level up the fireworks in your "Wow!" emote. This is a returning Tavern Brawl from last year's festival, and your running total of Mini-Rag kills from last year's festival carries over to this year. Happy hunting!

      Four new Mech minions were spoiled as details about the Magnetic keyword were explained and demonstrated in a short video.
       
      Many questions about Magnetic were answered in today's Hearthside Chat as four new Mech cards (three with Magnetic) were revealed in the video:
       
       
      Announced in the video were details on how the Magnetic mechanic will work in game. If a minion with Magnetic is played to right of another Mech minion, then the minion will be played as-is and the two minions will not fuse together. To "activate" Magnetic and fuse two Mechs together, you will need to play a minion with Magnetic to the left of a Mech minion on the board. It was also announced the Hunter, Paladin, and Warrior will be the three classes that focus on the Magnetic keyword, and there will be Neutral Magnetic minions as well.
      So, what kind of giant robots will we be assembling in The Boomsday Project? First, we get Wargear:
       

       
      As Stephen Chang pointed out in the video, 5 Mana for 5/5 worth of stats is the same rate as Blessing of Kings! Wargear will turn any Mech into an instant threat, and will surely be a key card in any aggressive Mech deck. Though the card is far from impressive when played without Magnetic, we've seen time and time again just how powerful it is to add stats to the board which you can immediately use to attack (Bonemare, Fungalmancer).
       

       
      If you're looking for a good target for Wargear's massive stat boost, look no further than Upgradeable Framebot. 2 Mana for 6 total stats is an incredible deal, which should make Upgradeable Framebot a plug-and-play 2 drop in any Mech deck. The fact that this minion has a low Attack should not scare aggro decks away from it, as the 5 Health makes it incredible target for minion buffs.
       

       
      Our first Warrior card with Magnetic is Beryllium Nullifier, which doesn't excite me as much as the previous two cards. Adding 3/8 and "Can't be targeted by spells or Hero Powers" to any minion makes it nearly impossible for anything but a Vilespine Slayer or Voodoo Doll to kill, but 7 Mana is a huge ask for tempo decks. Magnetic appears to be an aggressive ability by nature, which makes me skeptical about the need for a 7 Mana card which only adds 3 attack the turn it comes down. Beryllium Nullifier seems better suited for a "Big Mech" deck, so we'll have to wait and see which other cards get spoiled before writing this one off.
       

       
      Last but not least is Zilliax, the walking keyword! This guy has a keyword for every point of Mana he costs, and a few of these keywords are highly desirable ones. Even if Zilliax didn't have Magnetic, he still might be a reasonable card for the fact that he can trade into any 3 Health minion with his Divine Shield and Rush while gaining you 3 life with his Lifesteal, then stick around on the board with his Taunt after he is done. Is this the card that Town Crier has been waiting for? The Lifesteal and Rush also make him a great target for Countess Ashmore in slower decks. I have a hard time imagining a world where Zilliax doesn't see quite a bit of play in the new meta!
      What do you think about these four new Mech cards? Let us know in the comment section, and be sure to check out our Boomsday Project Hub for more information on the upcoming expansion.
