hearthstone Hearthstone New Feature: Deck Recipes

1 post in this topic


Blizzard have announced that there will soon be a feature called "Deck Recipes", which has been designed to be a major improvement to the existing Deck Helper feature.

Currently the Deck Helper is not very helpful at all, offering seemingly random cards within a series of categories. Blizzard have improved on that by giving an in-game listing of three preset decklists, or recipes, for each class. One of those recipes will use only Basic and Classic cards to aid newer players, while the other two will be themed and designed to promote synergy between the cards in the recipe.

If you don't own all of the cards to follow the recipe, the "greatly improved" Suggest a Card feature will give suggestions from the cards you do own. The example they give leaves me slightly sceptical about this improvement, as Kobold Geomancer and Loot Hoarder might be better replacement suggestions for Bloodmage Thalnos. Without the recipe lists though, it is difficult to really make judgements in advance, so I'll take Blizzard's word for it for now.


The three descriptions of recipes given are: a Rogue deck that uses Malygos to boost spell damage, a Trap Hunter deck, and a Murloc Shaman deck. It will be interesting to see how powerful these decks are. All of the recipes will be usable in Standard, and will be updated to keep up with new card pools.

Of course, Sottle's Guides already have decklists for all levels of play, and include card substitution suggestions.

      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!
