Strap In for a Sensational Showdown

Deep in the heart of the Badlands, the Bloodrock Mining Company has struck gold! Or, rather, something even better: Azerite. Now they’re double-timing their mining, bleeding the land dry and putting everyone in the Badlands at risk. Mysterious heroes came on horseback to set the town right, but the corrupt Sheriff Barrelbrim’s stubborn as his hat is tall. It’s high time for high noon in this Showdown in the Badlands!

Expansion Features

New Keyword: Quickdraw
In the Badlands, being quick on the draw might just save your hide. Cards with the Quickdraw keyword get a special effect on the turn they are added to your hand. Shoot cards off as soon as you draw them, or plan around your Quickdraws with bounce and generation effects!
New Keyword: Excavate
There’s treasure in them there hills! Cards with the Excavate keyword get your treasures from the Azerite mine. Each time you Excavate, you dig deeper and find rarer treasures!
Sketchy Townsfolk
The entire town is digging deeper and deeper into the mines, looking for Azerite treasures. Townsfolk classes have extra Excavate synergies and a unique reward for their Excavations! The corrupt Sheriff Barrelbrim’s behind the operation, and he doesn’t care what damage they do to the Badlands... or what they might awaken.
Heroic Outlaws
Sometimes, it takes an outlaw’s intervention for folks to start straight-shootin'. Some classes brought an outlaw to the Showdown in the Badlands. These lone gunslingers have extra effects if there are no duplicates in your deck. So, what do you say, are you feeling lucky?


When does Showdown in the Badlands launch?
Showdown in the Badlands will launch on November 14.
Where’s the Showdown in the Badlands Cinematic Trailer?
We’re keeping that one in the barrel until Blizzcon. Join us for the launch of the Cinematic Trailer, card reveals, and more!
Which classes are with the Townsfolk?
Death Knight, Mage, Rogue, Warlock, and Warrior. Townsfolk classes each have a unique Legendary Excavate Treasure that they get when they Excavate for a fourth time. These powerful Azerite Elemental Beasts make all that mining worthwhile!
So how does Excavate work?
Whenever you Excavate, you get a random excavated treasure from whatever tier you’re on—then you move onto the next tier. After you’ve received a treasure from the last tier, you’ve tapped out that mine and need to start from the beginning in a new vein. All classes can Excavate from the Common, Rare, and Epic tiers of excavated treasures, but the townsfolk classes also have a special Legendary tier! There are five options in each of the Common, Rare, and Epic tiers, but there’s only one Legendary treasure for each class, so the townsfolk know just what they’re digging towards. Check out an Excavate card in the official Card Library for more details.
Which classes are the Outlaws?
Demon Hunter, Druid, Hunter, Paladin, Priest, and Shaman. Each of these classes gets a powerful collectible Legendary outlaw minion that gets a bonus effect if you have no duplicates in your deck.
I see Reno and Elise, is the entire League of Explorers in this set?
No. This set takes place before the founding of the League of Explorers, when Reno and Elise met for the first time. They hit it off so well that they form the League of Explorers after the events of the Showdown in the Badlands.
What’s the best pre-purchase bundle?
We offer two pre-purchase bundles so that players can purchase either or both, whatever works best for them. For players who plan to choose just one, The Mega Bundle (Pre-Purchase) is the best value option for the Hearthstone Mode.
When can I open my pre-purchase packs?
Pre-purchase packs will be able to be opened when the expansion launches on November 14. Our new Mass Pack Opening feature will make opening your pre-purchase packs faster and easier than ever!
How do card re-rolls work?
From time to time, certain specific cards are awarded to players that are not able to be disenchanted. For instance, from now until Patch 28.6, you can login to get a free copy of the Thunderbringer Legendary minion! This also applies to cards on the Rewards Track and certain other special rewards. For those types of cards, a pop-up automatically appears when you have a disenchantable version already and get another copy that is non-disenchantable. That pop-up will allow you to re-roll the disenchantable duplicate version into another random card of the same rarity and quality from that same set.
Where can I find Showdown in the Badlands card reveals?
