It's been a good while since we've highlighted content coming from the Hearthstone community and thought the launch of Mean Streets of Gadgetzan would serve as a good time to bring it back.
Before we dive into that, however, everyone's favorite piece of buttered bread, Disguised Toast has announced a special stream with Day 9. Both players will be handing over control to Twitch Chat so that each of them can duke it out and see which stream is the best. Find the full announcement below.
With the release of Mean Streets of Gadgetzan, who better to define the new meta than all the people who already know the meta best… Twitch Chat! At 1pm PST on Wednesday, the DayTV Twitch Chat will fight against DiguisedToast’s Twitch Chat using DisguisedToast’s Twitch Plays Hearthstone program debuted here. Our Twitch Chats will build 3 decks and control every move to see which chat truly knows the new meta.
Here’s how it’ll work
DisguisedToast and I will be playing a Conquest Best of 5 - Build 3 decks, first to 3 wins, can’t win with the same deck twice.
Class selection - a simple strawpoll will identify the top 3 class choices
Deck construction - viewers will type the full name of a card into chat and, every 20s, the highest voted card will be added to the deck.
Playing - viewers have a series of on-screen locations where they can vote for a mouse click. Every half second, the most frequently suggested click location will be clicked. We are also employing DisguisedToast’s patented “no premature turn end” contingency code.
Prize - the winning host will select a very very gross food for the other one to eat on air. Oh and also the winning host clearly has the smartest, most meta in-tune community on all of Twitch.
Chats/reddit/the community at large is welcome to try to plan out deck construction and gameplay in advance.
Trolls and saboteurs are welcome to ruin those plans.
Chat will be OFF sub mode for the duration of the event. Everyone can participate. Each host is permitted one “sub-mode-save” game to entrust a single match to the hands of subscribers. Hosts are not required to sub-mode-save. It’s also not clear that a sub-mode-save will be beneficial.
The VODs and highlights will be uploaded to my and DiguisedToast’s YouTube as soon as we can.
And back to our regularly scheduled content, here are some things from the past week that we recommend watching:
Gadgetzan Interactions Video
Toast's first task is, of course, testing interactions.
Kripp's 35 Legendary Deck
It might not be good in the current meta (thanks, Pirate Warrior), but Kripp has adjusted his infamous 35 legendary minion deck with all of the new Gadgetzan legendaries taken into account. We've uploaded it here - Kripp's Gadgetzan 35 Legendary Deck - but you can watch the video below to see it in action.
Fill your board entire board with Mayor Noggenfogger and it takes forever for things to happen.
Maybe you've seen the Hearthstone commercial for a Christmas album composed by Murlocs? In it a phone number is listed and if you call it, well...

Ever wonder what's actually happening when you open a Gadgetzan pack?
