All the flavor text of the new cards can be found below!

Quote from HearthPwn

  • Street Trickster - His first trick: making your wallet disappear!
  • Red Mana Wyrm - It has double the Attack. "Go on." And double the Health. "Yes??" And its trigger has twice the effect. "WHAT???" And it costs… Five times more.
  • Jinyu Waterspeaker - Waterspeakers can tell the future! So the Jade Lotus employs them to speculate on the Auction House.
  • Kooky Chemist - #abs
  • Blubber Baron - When oil, railroad, steel, robber, and red are all already taken, your options are limited.

  • Public Defender - Happy to defend any public offender!
  • Smuggler's Run - One of the most famous busts in Gadgetzan’s history happened on Smuggler’s Run, where Sergeant Sally apprehended a cadre of Grimy Goons transporting a massive number of illegal fish heads.

  • Potion of Madness - You'd be insane NOT to drink it!
  • Greater Healing Potion - Filled with electrolytes!
  • Drakonid Operative - His job is to spy on the Goons and the Jade Lotus, but he's OBVIOUSLY a dragon so it's pretty hard work.
  • Mana Geode - Gadgetzan, where even the pet rocks have pet rocks.
  • Fel Orc Soulfiend - "Doc says the persistent burning sensation in my soul is probably just an ulcer."
  • Crystalweaver - The trick is soaking the crystals in warm milk to soften them up.
  • Bloodfury Potion - You know what really makes my blood boil? The skyrocketing price of Bloodfury potions!
  • Mark of the Lotus - The mark of the Lotus is a little flower drawn in permanent marker on the ankle.

  • Potion of Polymorph - Tastes like Baaaaananas.
  • Greater Arcane Missiles - Wow, and I thought Arcane Missiles was great!

  • Small-Time Recruits - Now we know why they wear tiny watches.
  • Wickerflame Burnbristle - Wickerflame spent years as a recruit for the Goons, never making the big-time because he always fired his chest-cannon too slowly. "Hey," he thought, "maybe if I keep my beard lit on fire, I can do this faster." BOOM, promoted.
