hearthstone Hearthstone Tavern Brawl: Unite Against Mechazod!

13 posts in this topic

This week's Tavern Brawl is the 49th Tavern Brawl. It is a repeat of Unite Against Mechazod!


This was one of the more popular Brawls last time around. Two players have to cooperate to kill Mechazod, a 2/95 Taunt minion who changes sides at the end of each turn. One player takes the role of Priest, while the other takes Paladin. If the players defeat Mechazod, they both win. If either player dies, they both lose.

Both decks use plenty of cards that can help their team. I will deliberately not post too many spoilers in here, but cards such as Dancing Swords and Arcane Golem can be used to give your partner cards and mana. There are also some tricks available with Lorewalker Cho and Millhouse Manastorm. Other things are for you to find out!

When Mechazod changes sides, he also uses one of his spells. These are:
  • Prioritize: Damage Attack: damage to biggest minion
  • Bomb Savlo: Deal Attack damage to up to three random targets
  • Overclock: Gain 2 Attack
  • Double Zap: Deal Attack damage to both players
  • One other ability, that I won't spoil for those who don't know
Mechazod's spells are the same as in Return of Mechazod, which means this Brawl has been updated slightly since last time we saw it. Previously he was able to Assassinate the biggest minion instead of using Prioritize.

This is another Brawl where you don't have to build a 30 card deck. It has been five weeks since one of those, and I think this is a good trend. Brawls are supposed to be casual and fun. This particular Brawl fits the fun category pretty well. Beware though, some opponents play the whole game and then concede just before winning. A frustrating downside of the format.

That sinking feeling you get when you watch your brawl-mate coin out his Millhouse on turn one. sad.png

Or when they actively try to kill you and ignore Mech? :D

The real terrible thing is when you try and fill your board so that Mechazod can't find a place to switch side . Well, he found a way to switch side anyway sad.png

I don't think it's possible to test, since you have premade decks. If he was in it, he'd probably work. Maybe one day we will see Unstable Portal into BK into Mechazod dead.

True.

 

I am pretty sure I've seen Unstable Portal in the one where you used Mage against Mechazod, but I don't recall seeing a Black Knight from it.

Going to have to make sure to spam the brawl next time Mage is available for it!

      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!

      So the latest expansion, Mean Streets of Gadgetzan, has been out for more than a month now, and I was curious what everyone´s opinion on it was. Personally, I love the set. It adds more synergy with types of cards that weren´t as popular beforehand. For example, sets like secret mage, demon warlock, taunt warrior, and beast druid/hunter, have all gotten big buffs and can be viable in the meta. I got rank 13 with secret mage and taunt warrior alone, and hope to get to legend with them. What about you?

      The live Q&A with the two well-known Hearthstone devs took place yesterday and we've made a recap of the most interesting points.
      First of all, if you want to watch the whole thing, the VOD can be found here (it starts at 14:10). If you prefer a shorter version, Redditor EpicMelon has made a 10-min video of everything important said. Ultimately, if you don't feel like watching videos, we've made a summary of anything worth noting from yesterday's Q&A.
      Ben started talking about the new player experience, a topic he has discussed again this week. He repeated that most new players start off by playing versus A.I., some go to Casual and a minority goes to Ranked. The team has made it so that in Casual new players are exclusively matched against other new players and their MMR is kept to a 50% winrate.
      One of the currently most discussed hot topics in the Hearthstone community is the Ranked ladder. The team is satisfied with how clear the current system is in how it works. However, they do realise that its grindiness and the monthly reset can be a disadvantage and feel repetitive. To counter that, they are looking into short-term increasing the amount of bonus stars players can gain. This will hopefully increase the number of players in medium and higher ranks and move veterans away from Rank 20. However, they don't want everyone to be a Legend player either, since this would devalue the ranking. New breakpoints are also an idea the Hearthstone team is considering. As far as winstreaks stopping at Rank 5 are concerned, the idea behind this is that they wanted players to get to Legend "legit"; this could change as well, though.
      Moving to the topic of Arena, Dean announced that they are thinking of moving it to Standard format. Moreover, they want to try decreasing the amount of commons you get, as well as the amount of neutral Classic and Basic cards (especially minions). Some of these changes for Arena are already ready to be added to the game they are just waiting for the right time to patch them in. In early February, top 100 rankings for Arena will be published - just like the Ranked season ones. These rankings will be calculated based on highest average wins per run basis with a minimum requirement of 30 runs.
      The guys had a few things to say about the current meta, too. Pirate Warrior represented 30% of the meta game near the launch of Mean Streets of Gadgetzan, while there were also a lot of Pirate Shamans and Rogues. Thankfully, these numbers have dropped as other decks (like Jade Druid and Reno decks) started surfacing. Pirate decks are slightly more popular than Team 5 would like and decks with the pirate package feel same-y. If this persists, they might take a look at Pirates. Hunters and Paladins are having a hard time at the moment because they can't keep up with the aggro pirate decks. Overall, the internal meta report shows a stability in the meta: there is only a 3% difference between the winrates of the top deck and the 11th best deck.
      Lastly, there was mention of the Wild format. Ben admitted that they could do some things better for Wild. For example, it's possible that Blizzard will encourage more Wild tournaments in the future. The upcoming rotation will be interesting since Wild will have more card sets than Standard. Wild is far from dead: it's just half as popular as Standard, although Ben hasn't looked in the numbers recently. Earlier in the stream, Ben also said that the team is considering two options to keep Standard fresh: either nerfing cards or just move them to Wild.
      Lastly, Ben and Dean talked about various other small topics like the possibility of reprinting cards (no actual answer given), more Hunter and Paladin talk, wording inconsistencies and rewriting old cards, how a healthy meta is defined and Team 5 itself.
