hearthstone Hearthstone Tavern Brawl: Top 2

This week's Tavern Brawl is called Top 2. In this Brawl you pick two cards and you are given a deck filled with just those two cards.


This is the 48th Tavern Brawl, and it might be the best one yet. The first deck that people were playing was composed of Mana Wyrm and Arcane Missiles. It seems that you can't stop Tempo Mage cards from being strong in Brawls. However, other decks are definitely viable. Mechwarper, for instance, is a really powerful card in multiples, while nearly any 2-card combo you have always wanted to achieve is pretty much certain to end up in your hand.

My effort is shown below on the left, while Sottle's is on the right.

At first this Brawl seems one-dimensional, but there are quite a few things to try out. It remains to be seen whether this Brawl will have much replay value, but the hour or so I played around with it, I had a lot of fun.

I have deliberately not posted all of the combinations I found in this post, but feel free to post your favourites in the comments.

My most successful so far has been Warlock with Forbidden Ritual and Knife Juggler.

 

Some fairly strong combos I've seen opponents with have been Living Roots with Call of the Wild on Druid and Bilefin Tidehunter and Evolve on Shaman.

I had a lot of fun playing Druid, using Innervate and Raven Idol.  Pretty easy to get your pick of minions and spells, and have the mana to play them.

I've had some decent luck playing Murloc Tidecaller and Murloc Warleader. I also saw a Mechwarper/Metaltooth Leaper Hunter deck that killed me on turn 2 by using coin on turn 1 and hero power on turn 2.

I tried several variations but by far the most successful (and annoying) was Mage with Ice Block + Fireball.

 

As long as you draw a fair number of Ice Blocks, it's nearly impossible to lose.

Priest using Forbidden Shaping and Mind Blast was rather fun

Include Ice Lance for Fireball and you are good to go. Just wait till you got 9 of them for 32dmg.

Innervate+Y'Shaarj (can) = turn 1 concedes.

 

Also had fun with Upgrade! matched with a couple different pirates.

HI,

After bad start with "Flash heal" + "Mind blast", change to combination of "Twilight whelp" + "Museum curator" show great results, for now more then 10 wins in row.

:D

Simple, fun and enjoyable. Definitely top 2 on my list of favorite brawls (yes, I did this pun sorry).

Also, easy and fast dailies and gold cap are always a pleasure.

Good call on Ice Lance.

One thing to note about Ice Block. It won't prevent you from dying to Curse of Rafaam.

How do you lose on turn 2 with mechwarper/metaltooth?

Ice lance is just inferior to fireball, mostly because you can't gradually kill your opponent, and you can't rely on getting to the point where you have 9 lances against most decks, especially the board flood ones with mechwarper or coldlight oracle.

Fireball+ice block is actually just broken.

Nope. Innervate + Coldlight Oracle should easily beat this. Ice block won't save you from fatigue damage.

i agree but getting random spells could do just the same ..but i prefer the consistency from the arcane missiles and    just keep building a board till u can burst damage ffor lots of damage ...but ill try the clockwork dude for sure ...

My combos so far... Prepare for lulz.

Wisp+Evole.

Shieldbearer+bolster.

Equality+Wild pyromancer.

Innervate+Shifter Zerus.

Angry Chicken+Mark of the wild.

Sorcerer Apprentice+Cabalist tome(Slow but fun.)

Ancestors call+Any ridiculous legendary. Notably Nefarian and on the epic list, blood of the old god.

Stupid fun.

Edit: Ysera, not Nefarian. Got my damn dragons mixed up.

      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!
