hearthstone Hearthstone Team Story China Week 14 Round-Up

Team Story is a Chinese team league, which I am part of the casting crew for on Twitch. Teams get two points for the best of eleven conquest main portion of the match. They get one point for a best of five conquest portion, that uses the three classes not used in the main match. Going into the final week of the league, five teams were still in contention for the playoffs and four of them could still earn a first round bye.


Week 14 decided the playoff places. Due to the stepladder nature of the playoffs, each place in the table is crucial, which meant that three of the four matches this week were still very relevant.
 
EDward Gaming have been resurgent since signing NoTomorrow on the back of his World Championship top sixteen finish. This week they needed to beat Vici Gaming to lock in a playoff place. Despite a mini comeback by Vici from 4-1 to 5-4 in the main match, EDward took all three points to qualify, although they had to wait and see whether they finished in second or in third place.
 
In the least relevant match this week, runaway leaders Team Celestial further stamped their dominance on the league by winning 3-0 against Vici Gaming. Team Celestial had already earned their bye to the final, but added another $1850 to their earnings so far with this result.
 
The biggest match of the week was between Yolo Miracle and World Elite. A 3-0 win for either team would see them finish in second place, while a loss would put them in danger of missing the playoffs if TongFu won their final match. Yolo took down both sections of the match to grab that 3-0 win and finish the season in second place and they will get a first round bye in the playoffs.
 
In the final match, TongFu played Newbee and TongFu needed to win the main portion to take a playoff spot, and eliminate World Elite from the competition. They managed this to complete an incredible comeback. Two weeks ago they were 5-3 down in the main part of their match against EDward. They went on to win that, and then won 3-0 in back to back weeks to sneak into the playoffs in fourth place.

      We have a new Tavern Brawl this week! Its name is Spellbook Duel.
      For this Brawl, you choose your class and then you pick 10 different cards to fill your deck. Instead of drawing cards each turn, you Discover a copy of a card from your deck. If you use card drawing mechanics, like Arcane Intellect, you don't actually draw from your deck. You will, in fact, get a 1-mana spell called Peruse, which again allows you to Discover a copy of a card from your deck.
      Obviously, there are a lot of possible deck combinations you can use to tackle this new Tavern Brawl. The first things that pop into mind are anything that contains Reno Jackson and Kazakus, as well as Jade Druid to extend the possibility of getting these precious Jade Idols. Once again, Mage is the clear winner of this Brawl with cards like Sorcerer's Apprentice, Arcane Intellect and Flamewaker.
      Bear in mind that some cards are not recommended, since they remove cards from your Discover pool. Examples are Fel Reaver and Tracking. Moreover, cards that put another card directly into play, like Mysterious Challenger and Mad Scientist, will also make your Discover pool smaller. Lastly, according to a Reddit user, Renounce Darkness won't deduct 1 mana from the cards you discover throughout the game.
      There are already a lot of disgusting decks for Spellbook Duel out there. We are waiting for your suggestions and any other useful info in the comments!
