Zakat's got big plans. He's a trade-prince, but he's always been one of the weaker ones. But things are going to change. Zakat's been amassing wealth to do what everyone once thought was impossible—he's going to break into the famed Azerite Vault. Can you help the mysterious Nexus-Prince pull off the greatest heist in history?
The core mechanic of this expansion is the Side-Quest. It functions very similarly to the regular Quest mechanic, except it's attached to minions, and both the quests and the rewards are much smaller in the scale. Side-Quests can only be completed once, and they can't be completed once the minion dies. Help these people do their jobs, and they'll return the favor in the form a nice advantage!
A few kind-hearted (and not so kind-hearted) souls have some loose change that they may willing to lend you. At least, for a little while. But be careful, Coins are only available while supplies last!
Q: What year is this a part of?A: This exists in its own "Year of the Viper", together with Azeroth's Most Wanted. This "year" happens alongside the current Year of the Dragon.
Q: What sets influenced the balance of Azeroth's Most WantedA: This was the first set of the year, and this was made before the rotation of the cards related to Odd and Even cards. Any future changes will only be remade to changes that come up due to the sets that came out after this.
Q: What are the full plans for the set?A: Voice acting for the cards, more lore, perhaps a logo for the expansion (and the previous one), stuff like that. If you wanna help, feel free to shoot me a DM if you wanna help!

Some great ideas here. Would love to see some of them added to the game in the future.
Might post a more in-depth comment here later, there's a lot of stuff to go over, but I just had to point out that the money-lenders don't really work they way they ought to RN.
There's simply no downside to casting them, either you can use the coin in which case it's a clear win-win, or you can't in which case you burn a coin you didn't have to begin with. It also poorly matches the flavour of a debt, where you typically are stuck paying back the creditor more than you initially borrowed. If they read: "Battlecry: Gain a coin. At the end of turn discard the lowest cost card in your hand", they'd still work the same if you choose not to spend the borrowed money, *but if you do*, you have to pay up and discard a different card. Or you could have these be special coins that overload you for one.
Either way, IMO these cards aren't real loan sharks unless they punish the player in some way for spending borrowed money. Really like the concept though.
