Something big is coming to Azeroth as the master inventor and toymaker extraordinaire, Whizbang, is opening the doors to his magical workshop next month. Prepare to take a trip down memory lane as Hearthstone is preparing to release its first expansion in the Year of the Pegasus, Whizbang’s Workshop, featuring a staggering 145 new cards like the Zilliax 3000 Deluxe and a new keyword.

Hearthstone’s Whizbang’s Workshop expansion will truly be a nostalgia-inducing experience as the toymaker’s creations have been inspired by 10 years of in-game lore and history. From iconic characters to ingenious mechanics, every inch of the workshop is populated by both familiar faces and fresh twists from Hearthstone’s past.

Going into some specifics about the update, the Zillax 3000 Deluxe is an unmissable card. It is fully customizable, meaning you can tailor it to your liking. Create the perfect Zillax model for yourself by combining the costs, stats, and effects of two Modules. The Miniaturize keyword is another one of Whizbang’s works that adds a one-mana 1/1 copy to your hand.
