The SL i-League StarSeries tournament concluded this weekend and the winner was Lanshengzhe from China, who is also known as Robin. He beat Cipher 4-1 in the final to take home $20,000. All matches until the Final were best of five conquest with a ban. The final was best of seven conquest with a ban and a revive.


The group stages were played as an all play all format, with the winner going straight into the semi-final stages. The last placed player in each group was eliminated. The results of the groups were as follows:

Group A: Kolento (3-0), Cipher (1-2), Dog (1-2), Lvxiaobu (1-2)
Group B: Lanshengze (2-1), Surrender (2-1), StanCifka (1-2), JAB (1-2)

In the quarter-finals, Dog beat new NaVi signing, Surrender, 3-2. Cipher beat Stan Cifka 3-2.

 


Semi Final One: Cipher vs Kolento


In the first semi-final, both players banned Druid. Game one was Paladin vs Paladin. Cipher brought a standard looking Secret Paladin, while Kolento brought Murloc Paladin. Kolento took a 1-0 lead, as wave after wave of board clears made it impossible for Cipher to deliver anywhere near enough damage to threaten lethal. Cipher stuck with Secret Paladin for game two, and a turn one Secretkeeper survived for six turns to level the scores at 1-1. Game three saw Cipher's Freeze Mage take down the Zoo deck, and in game four his Combo Renolock again beat Zoo to give Cipher a 3-1 victory. All three of his wins were against Zoo.


Semi Final Two: Dog vs Lanshengzhe


Lanshengzhe took a very fast 1-0 lead with Face Shaman against Control Priest. He then doubled that lead nearly as quickly as his Zoo deck defeated Dog's Demon Handlock. Dog's Handlock deck then beat Secret Paladin to pull back a game, but he couldn't beat it with Control Priest in game four, and Lanshengzhe advanced to the final.


Final: Cipher vs Lanshengzhe


The final still used a ban, but players were allowed to revive one deck after it had won. Cipher banned Druid again, while Lanshengzhe banned Mage. Cipher looked like he was in control in the first game with Renolock against Zoo, but a technical issue meant the game was replayed. Langshengzhe won the rematch, and then went 2-0 ahead by beating Secret Paladin with his Shaman deck. He then revived his Shaman for a rematch, which he won again, to go 3-0 ahead. In game four, Lanshengzhe made a big mistake when he need to tap into a Power Overwhelming to put on his Doomguard for the win, but he drew the card before playing the Doomguard, meaning he had to discard it, which gave Cipher a win with his Renolock. Cipher revived his deck, but Lanshengzhe held his nerve in spite of his previous error and took the match 4-1


Lanshengzhe plays for Yolo Miracle, under the name Robin, who recently finished second in Team Story China.

      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!
