Nice catch, I didn't even notice that, probably assumed it was part of the orc-mirage. Seems Onyxia-like, so probs black dragon.

He is but that won't happen until the expansion after this one so there will be time to have fun with all these "highlander" cards.

Thanks C9

EDIT:

This is a neat little set of fanmade 'keywords'.

http://www.hearthpwn.com/news/2006-v...reated-keyword

I like Defend, Meditate, and Infiltrate

If I had to make a keyword, I'd make it a counterpart to Defend.

"Advance": Ability is only active on your turn.
Similar to enrage, weaker in that cards don't have the higher attack or x benefit all the time, stronger in that they don't have to be damaged for it.


I do feel the game has gotten WAY too focused on board-clears though, you're lucky if you have a card on the map for one or two turns after you hit 3-4 mana before one spell or another wipes it clear.

I'm just really glad they brought back the Gadgetzan Gazette for this.

Even if it's probably written by this night elf reporter

I have no idea that Night Elf is male or female.

I also don't care. It's really good art.

The thing about words is that meanings can twist just like a snake, and if you want to find snakes look for them behind words that have changed their meaning.

No one ever said elves are nice.

Female, you can tell cause the brown of her shirt stops above the navel and doesn't go down to her pants like the white part of her shirt. That plus the way the cheek and lips are drawn make me think it's a woman night elf.

I kinda wanna see MeanStreetsOfGadgetzan get little shorts.

The Gangs Fighting, good and bad aspects of each group, it could get a netflix cartoon easy.

So White Eyes could become problematic. The re-emergance of control Shaman could be fun, though.

Why is Wrathion not a dragon?

That's my biggest issue with this set right now.

Yeah that's weird, maybe because he's in human form but still.


I love the aesthetic, I'm sad it'll probably be a one-off thing, I'd love to see other sets and stuff in this style.

All right, we have a full spoiler and a release date! Seems as if "early december" means december 1'st!

https://manacrystals.com/articles/24...s-of-gadgetzan

What are you all thinking of brewing? I have some gold saved up, and my brother gifted me 50 packs for my birthday, so I'm hopeful.

I'm thinking of building a Tempo Mage Highlander with Solia, Reno and Yoggy. But the new Priest legendary is insane - I don't know that it'll be worthwhile to replace ressurection priests, but I'll definately be experimenting.

Highlander Warlock was already a thing, though I'm thinking of trying a Zoo variant rather than a C'thun one. Perhaps some semblance of the old handlock. Paladin White Weenie also seems like it could be fun.

Edit: Also, token druid, centered around Jade Golem. Seems like it'd be cheap enough.

Weasel Tunneler might be my favourite card in this whole expansion.

With Beneath the Grounds, I'd love to dream up some form of deck distruption casual deck.

Edit: Oh, cyber week is on.

What do Highlander and White Weenie mean?


I'm gonna try and build a control warrior deck focused on using taunt and the GrimyGoons mechanic to build up masses of beefy cards.

I am now content.

Heh.

Kazakus - The mysterious leader of the Kabal is NOT a dragon, and does NOT deal in illegal potions. Any public statements to the contrary will be met with litigation and Dragonfire Potions.
So now I'm wondering if he actually is a dragon...

These are Magic terms. A Highlander deck means that there is only a single copy of each card in the whole deck. The Cabal seems to operate on the principle of Highlander, and Reno Jackson before them.

White Weenie decks swarm the field with small. cheap creatures and then empower them en-masse. Aggro-Murlocs are such a deck. The Mean Street Paladin one accomplishes this differently, by empowering cheap cards in your hand. This means you don't auto-concede when you overextend and eat a Flamestrike.

Thank you very much.

These days having anything more than 3 minions on the board at a time seems like suicide though.

The idea with most aggro decks is to kill your opponent before they have enough resources to respond. I think the only consistently succesful version of that in Hearthstone has been the Face-Hunter, but that doesn't mean that there's no room for other kinds.

I mean, Paladin Murlocs got Everyfin is Awesome, after all. The 2/1 Charge Murloc for 2, the War Leader and Murk-Eye is 19 damage, after all.
