Blizzard have confirmed that the reward for reaching rank 20 in January 2017 will be the Grimy Goons card back.

The card backs for the three gangs were first revealed in the November 29 update, but as we have seen before with the Halfhill one, nothing is certain until it is confirmed. The card back for January, which is the 34th season of competitive play, can be seen below.

If everything goes as expected, the card back for next month will be the one from the Kabal.

You never know they could end up adding more and put these off for 3 or 4 months like they did the Halfhill  backing. Blizzard is like Game of Thrones, you think you know what's going to happen but you never know, you know?

Or maybe a few years, like they did with Diablo 3 :P Kabal card back coming late 2021.

Shan'do is my favourite character in HS. This expansion killed him. Also random Rexxar death in the background just for fun. Hearthstone is GoT confirmed.

As long as Ragnaros keeps coming back to life, I'm ok with it :D

It's a bit strange that you have to wait three months from the release of Gadgetzan to get the three Gadgetzan card backs.  So, by the time the next expansion comes out, and everyone's going off Gadgetzan and using new decks, that's when we'll have all the card backs.

if(Hearthstone_Marketing_Department == "D'oh!") { SetThemedCardBacksDaysDelay(90); }

      IGN unveiled a new Epic Rogue Card called Gurubashi Hypemon. Revenge of the Wild is a 2 Mana Rare Hunter Card that was revealed by the Thai site MustPlay.

      Battlecry: Discover a 1/1 copy of a Battlecry minion. It costs (1).

      Two new cards were revealed by Asian streamers: an Epic neutral minion and the Paladin Spirit.
      The first card was unveiled by Chinese streamer LaLaLa on Douyu.

      The first thought that comes when looking at this card is that it's great support for Quest Hunter. The problem is support cards for this archetype were printed in previous expansions and the result was always the same. Untamed Beastmaster could definitely fit into a Beast deck along with Oondasta - and since they are both Neutral cards, this doesn't necessarily have to be Hunter. Hi'reek, the Warlock Loa, and his copies could benefit from the +2/+2 buff. Untamed Beastmaster could also find its place in a Beast Druid deck with minions like Charged Devilsaur and Tyrantus. These Warlock and Druid combos, though, sound a bit like win-more situations.
      The Paladin Spirit was revealed by Korean streamer (and dancer) Rhdgurwn.

      The text box may not be the final version as "stats equal to its Cost" is a bit vague, since it could mean a 4/4 or a 3/1 or a 1/3 or a 2/2. However, it would make sense that if you cast a 4-mana spell, the Spirit would summon a 4/4 Tiger and that's how we are going to treat it. At 4 mana, this different version of Summoning Stone seems a bit slow and definitely promotes a more Spell Control-oriented playstyle, which is what Paladin seems to be heading to in Rastakhan's Rumble. It definitely makes for a strong combo with Spikeridged Steed.

      It turns out that Dragon Warrior is definitely going to return in Rastakhan's Rumble and the Warrior Legendary Champion is proof of that!
      The card was revealed in the third episode of the Wronchi Animations series of videos for Rastakhan's Rumble (here is Part 1 and Part 2). Krag'wa the Frog is literally swallowing the opponent Annoy-o-trons, when War Master Voone shows up, astounding Garrosh in the audience.
      The video has an older version of the card, since it looks like the team decided that the final version of Voone is actually a 4-mana 4/3:

      The wording is slightly vague, but the copies are added to your hand. As shown in the video, this could work great with The Boomship. However, if you are playing expensive Dragons, I don't see how useful it would be to have more copies of them unless you are absolutely sure that the game is going to last long enough so you can play them all. There's also the problem that currently in Standard there aren't that many powerful Dragons and we've yet to see any new ones in Rastakhan's Rumble. Other than that, War Master Voone and the newly revealed Firetree Witchdoctor can work great in a Dragon Warrior deck and let it be noted that they are both Even cards.

      The Rogue Legendary Loa has just been unveiled!
      The reveal was made by MKRR3 on YouTube. The video is in Polish.

      Gral, the Shark can potentially draw you a minion but it is quite weak to Silence. Still, Rogue has quite a few ways to trigger the Deathrattle and now with Spirit of the Shark, it can trigger the Battlecry twice as well. At first sight, though, it feels like a weak card: Silence destroys it, high mana cost and Rogue traditionally runs quite a few small minions as well. It also doesn't seem to fit with the Pirate theme Rogue will have in Rastakhan's Rumble, altough perhaps we can see Beast Rogue with Oondasta and the recently revealed Untamed Beastmaster.
      What do you people think about this card?
    • By Zadina
      It seems that Dragons will have a big part in Rastakhan's Rumble as this versatile and cheap Neutral minion can Discover a spell if you are holding a Dragon!
      Hafu revealed this card on YouTube:

      We haven't seen any Dragons revealed so far, but it's safe to assume that they will have some kind of presence in Rastakhan's Rumble. People are already thinking that Dragon Warrior might be a thing, due to the reveal of Smolderthorn Lancer. The Discover component of this card makes it very versatile and probably a staple in Dragon decks to come, since it's undeniable that Dragons will keep being printed in future expansions. The potential is definitely there, but without having seen any other Dragons from the upcoming expansion it's difficult to talk about which classes Firetree Witchdoctor can find a home in.
