Today, we'll be updating this post with all of the new information we can find including all of the new cards, any card changes, references to new Tavern Brawls, quests, and more. Given enough time we hope to also push all of the new card sounds and golden card art, record some video previews, and share any other information we can find with you.
Journey to Un'Goro cards can now be viewed in the Collection Manager.
Make sure you have Crafting Mode on!
Choose Your Champion rewards for HCT Winter Championship have been distributed.

The complete Journey to Un'Goro set is now available in our database and deckbuilder including golden cards!
