hearthstone Hearthstone: South East Asia Preliminary Result and Winning Decklists

1 post in this topic

The South East Asia (SEA) Spring Preliminary took place on May 22, as players from seven different countries battled it out for just one place in the Asia-Pacific Spring Championship next month. The format was best of five Conquest, with a ban.

Malaysia, Singapore, The Philippines, Vietnam, Thailand, India, and Indonesia were all represented in the event, which after all the qualifying was done, was played as a 32 player double elimination tournament. Winter champion, Staz, and WaningMoon had travelled back from China earlier in the day to take part in the event. In the WCA in China, Staz had finished in second place and WaningMoon finished third, losing to Staz along the way. When asked about the Preliminary, WaningMoon had commented that he was going to get his revenge.

As events transpired, he got his chance. Staz progressed through the upper bracket, while WaningMoon progressed to the semi-final, before dropping to the lower bracket and reaching the Grand Final from there. The event was played with Winners Advantage rules, which meant that if he was going to get his revenge, WaningMoon was going to have to beat Staz two matches in a row.

In the first match, Staz took an early 1-0 lead, beating Zoo with his Freeze Mage. His next deck was Hunter, a class that has been very lightly represented in recent tournaments. It looked like WaningMoon was going to show why Hunter is not in favour, as he beat it with both Zoo and Shaman. This convinced Staz to switch to his Shaman to take down Rogue, which levelled the scores. In the deciding game, Staz managed to assemble enough damage, with help from a pair of Huffers, to win the tournament for the second time in a row.

The VOD of the event is available here. I had the pleasure of being one of the casters, alongside Pathra.

The APAC final will be on PlayHearthstone's Twitch on June18-19.

      YouTuber, Disguised Toast, is never far from the front of Hearthstone science, and his latest video is spectacular. This video investigates the strange interactions caused by Weasel Tunneler's Deathrattle.
      Weasel Tunneler's Deathrattle seems simple enough, it reads: Shuffle this minion into your opponent's deck. However, when tested by Disguised Toast, it turns out that even this simple looking text can result in rather odd results. The ordering of other Deathrattles on the board, and effects by other cards on Deathrattles is what makes it so unpredictable. Take a look for yourself!
      The fact your deck displays as full, no matter how many cards left, is probably the strangest interaction of all. Even Toast doesn't  attempt to describe how that one happens.

      Blizzard have updated the breakdown of the amount each gang's classes are being played.
      On their Gadgetzan page, there is an infographic showing who controls the town of Gadgetzan today. The percentages are worked out by how often each class is being used. Even with the huge amount of Pirate Warrior on ladder at the moment, the Grimy Goons are unable to control the city! That honour goes, currently, to the Kabal. With people having success with Reno Warlock AND Reno Priest, it will be fun to see if they hold that position in the coming days.

      So I got a lot of jade cards for druid and neutral in the 15-20 packs I've opened, and I wanted to make a jade druid deck, right? But I'm poor, so I look up "Jade Druid Budget Deck". I find one on this site with the following deck list:
       
      2x Innervate 2x Jade Idol MSG 2x Living Roots TGT 2x Raven Idol LoE 2x Wild Growth 2x Wrath 2x Feral Rage TOG 2x Jade Blossom MSG 2x Swipe 2x Nourish 2x Jade Behemoth MSG 2x Jade Spirit MSG 2x Azure Drake 2x Gadgetzan Auctioneer 2x Arcane Giant Kara But I don't have Raven Idol. Or nourish, though I can just craft that since it's in classic. So can anyone suggest an option for replacing the raven idols? I don't want to get all of League of Explorers just to play with it for a month then watch it turn to dust so I can craft other cards for decks in standard. I have one branch, but that's it. I was thinking maybe 1 jeweled scarab, though I know that card is frowned upon for reasons I've never been made aware of, for flexibility, and a loot hoarder for pure draw.
