hearthstone Trump Lays Out How Decks Will Change

1 post in this topic


Trump has released a video on how decks will change when Standard comes into effect. He takes a look at which cards will be lost, and which currently played decks will suffer the most in Standard play without those cards.

As always with Trump, his production quality is high and the content is informative. For the most part, he steers away from speculation and sticks to the things that we either know for certain, or that Ben Brode has strongly hinted at. The main reason to watch this is the visual representation of the important cards that are going to be not available for Standard use.

The key thing to take from the video is that things are not going to be anywhere near the same as they are at the moment. While that is obvious, the magnitude of the changes become really apparent when they are laid out in front of you. Not only are we losing all of the cards and archetypes that Trump points out, but we are gaining a large set of new cards that we have no information on at all. These will account for a significant portion of the new meta, and so predicting what will be strong and weak is practically impossible. All we can predict at this stage is that many current decks will go missing, and many new ones will appear in their 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!
