He brings with him Powder Kegs. These cards stack and allow for all spells and skills to deal 1 extra damage. As a spell or skill is used, a Powder Keg is destroyed.
After getting Quinn announced for Demacia, it seems as though the theory of each Region getting a new champion along with the release of a brand new Region is correct. The new region was announced to be Bilgewater. There is a pattern to the release of new champions. On the LoR Twitter, they reveal three new card arts with references to who the new champion might be. Then after the third one they reveal the champion.
So far, Quinn has been added for Demacia, Sejuani for Freljord, Maokai for the Shadow Isles, Swain for Noxus, Vi for Piltover and Zaun and Lee Sin for Ionia. For Bilgewater so far it is Fizz, Nautilus and now Gangplank.
Should this pattern continue then that would mean all of the new champions would be revealed by April 28. This is very exciting for Riot’s first official foray into the cardgaming space. Also do not forget that Legends of Runeterra will be coming to mobile along with the official launch on April 30.
