1 post in this topic

The Asia-Pacific (APAC) Summer Championship takes place this weekend.

The players in the APAC Championship qualify a little differently compared to the other regions. Each sub-region has its own Preliminary event, some have two qualifying slots, and some have one. South Korea and Taiwan get two, while Australia/New Zealand, Japan, and South-East Asia get one each. The top points earner in the whole of the APAC region qualifies as of right.

Handsomeguy, from South Korea,  is the man to beat in this event. He has qualified for each of Winter, Spring, and Summer as the top points earner. He lost in the final of the Winter Championship and then secured his BlizzCon spot by winning the Spring Championship. His decks this time around are Tempo Mage, Control Warrior with Yogg-Saron, Hope's EndQuesting Adventurer Miracle Rogue, Malygos Druid, and Mid Shaman.

GundamFlame is my pick from the rest. He impressed in the Japan Championships. He showed creative play as well as good feel for when to switch from passive to aggressive play. He has brought Malygos Druid, Dragon Warrior, Tempo Mage, Aggro Shaman, and Mid Hunter.

The other players and deck archetypes are as follows:

  Yulsic: Malygos Druid, Freeze Mage, Aggro Shaman, Dragon Warrior, Zoo Warlock

  Malygos (I understand this is the name he's going by): Malygos Druid, Malygos Rogue, Mid Shaman, Zoo Warlock, Control Warrior

  Alpe: Malygos Druid, Questing Rogue, Mid Shaman, Zoo Warlock, Control Warrior

  Flurry: Malygos Druid, Mid Hunter, Miracle Rogue, Mid Shaman, Control Warrior

  Jowen: Malygos Druid, Tempo Mage, Questing Rogue, Aggro Shaman, N'Zoth Warrior

  Ledah: Token Druid, Questing Rogue, Mid Shaman, Zoo Warlock, Mid Hunter

The event will be streamed live on the official Twitch channel from 6am CEST on October 1st.

      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!
