hearthstone Tavern Brawl: Pick a Hand, Any Hand

The 54th Tavern Brawl is called "Pick a Hand, Any Hand". It is a new Brawl, and decks are created using your own collection.

Pick a Hand, Any Hand is similar in some ways to the popular recent Brawl, Top Two. The rules are that you have to pick the first seven cards of your deck, and the rest of the deck is filled with Unstable Portals. The interesting part is that the Portals are added AFTER you mulligan. This means that you are pretty much choosing your opening hand.

The premise could lead to a very interesting metagame. I would expect cards like Mana WyrmSorcerer's Apprentice, and Innervate to be very popular, and for people to try to get very fast starts for a minion based deck. Beyond that, it will need a lot of playtesting, but we have seen in the past that counter decks to the initial decks soon start being played, and that those decks often play removal rather than minions. It will be important to try to stay one step ahead of the metagame if you are going to have a high win rate.

As always, you are encouraged to post your efforts in the comments section below. If there are enough, I will do a mini-awards section again, where absolutely nothing apart from pride will be on the line!

Yogg-Saron should be a fun pick in this one.

Also, going second seems to be a huge advantage, because you can pick exactly what you want your opening hand to be. 

 

I'm tinkering with a druid alarm-o-bot deck, with some huge minions.  If you go second, you can play innervate + alarm-o-bot and pretty much guarantee a huge minion in play on round two.

Hi all, I just registered to the forum after following the site for HotS and HS for several months.

Going back to the topic I found that Hunter with Hunter's Mark x2 Elven Archer x2 Quick Shot x2 On the Hunt x1 counters well any mage or any cheap big drops like a t1 16/16 Edwin VanCleef or anything with Innervate.

Won all match so far except one vs Equality Paladin with a bunch of legendary

Welcome to the site! Thanks for the suggestion :)

The Hunter's Mark is just too good here. It's a great feeling using it on a big legendary!

Welcome m8, I tried this and it is very effective indeed, also lost one but more due to my opponent getting luckier with the portals early on

      Diablo’s 20th Anniversary will take place in the beginning of 2017 and it will be celebrated in all other Blizzard games. Let’s take a look at the special Diablo-themed Tavern Brawl planned for Hearthstone.
      During the release of the latest Hearthstone patch, a new Diabloesque card back was discovered. According to an article by Hearthpwn, where we found all this information, this card back is  tied to an upcoming Tavern Brawl called “[The] Dark Wanderer”.

      The chalk board, heroes, hero powers and some cards of minions, spells and secrets of this upcoming Brawl have been datamined and you can find them in the same Hearthpwn article. The two players will take on the roles of the Dark Wanderer and the Cow King, two figures we all recognise from Diablo II. Presumably, the card back will be rewarded after your first victory in the Brawl.
      We are expecting this new Tavern Brawl during the first weeks of January 2017 – just like the other Diablo celebrations in Blizzard games (most notably in World of Warcraft).
