Prior to Patch, Madam Goya would swap the chosen minion with one in their deck. However, due to causing many bugs, the text was reworked.[1] For historical purposes, the functionality of Madam Goya before patch 28.2 is listed below.

  • This card's Battlecry puts the target minion into the player's deck, then takes a random other minion from the player's deck and puts it directly into the battlefield.
  • This card's Battlecry will not activate if there are no minions in the player's deck.[2]
  • With  Brann Bronzebeard, this card's Battlecry will put in only the Battlecry's target, but will bring two minions from the decks directly into the battlefield.[3] The second minion may be the targeted minion, in which case it will be returned back to the board.[4][5]

Madam Goya originally ran the Black Market Auction House at the Black Market on the Veiled Stair, which is to the north east of the Valley of the Four Winds in Pandaria. She accepts bids personally as she is distrustful of others.
After the events of Mists of Pandaria, she moved her operation to the Ring of Blood in Nagrand on Draenor. When Warlords of Draenor concluded she moved again, this time to the Underbelly in Dalaran at the Broken Isles.
Her bodyguard, Mister Chu is ever by her side, even when Marcus makes an appearance in A Steamy Romance Novel: Hot and Misty.
Goya likes to keep eyes and ears open near important people or places, and will go as far as to try to sneak a spy inside.

In Hearthstone lore, Madam Goya serves as the curator for the Gadgetzan Museum of Ancient Artifacts, as evidenced by both Volume 32 #9 and Volume 32 #10 page 2 of The Gadgetzan Gazette. In the former, she is mentioned as having promised to credit citizens who donate to the museum with a "nifty plaque", while the latter describes a short speech given by Goya to a throng of the opening gala's attendees: "It gives me the greatest pleasure to welcome the people of Gadgetzan to what is now surely the world's finest museum. This, of course, is only the beginning! Our ancient past conceals wonders untold, and I am confident that you will find our future exhibits to be most... thrilling."


Patch changes

  • WW Logo.pngPatch (2023-12-05):
    • Targeting arrow text is now "Summon any copies from your deck." (previously: "Swap with a minion in your deck.").
    • Now reads: "Battlecry: Choose a friendly minion. Summon any copies of it in your deck." (previously: "Battlecry: Choose a friendly minion. Swap it with a minion in your deck.")
  • Mean Streets of Gadgetzan logo.png Patch (2016-11-29):
    • Added.
    • 2016-12-06: Fixed a bug where if your board was full (including Madam Goya) when Madam Goya was played, her Battlecry would shuffle a minion into the deck, but would not put a minion into the battlefield. This was because the random minion was put into the battlefield before the target minion was shuffled into the deck.
