The final non-Chinese server qualifier before BlizzCon takes place this weekend. We have listed the players and their decklists in this article, as well as a closer look at Fr0zen's unusual lineup.

The format of the event is single elimination best of seven Conquest. The eight top points earners over the entire HCT year will be taking part, with the winner going to BlizzCon. The players, their HCT points for the year, and their deck archetypes are shown below.

muzzy (120): Token Druid, Mid Hunter, Tempo Mage, Malygos Rogue, Mid Shaman

Fr0zen (116): Camel Hunter, N'Zoth Paladin, Priest, Reno Warlock, C'Thun Warrior

Fr0zen's lineup is an interesting one as he has decided to counter Warrior incredibly strongly. If this lineup runs into Warrior, the plan is to win every game against it and not worry as much about the other classes. With Warrior being a popular class at the moment, it will be interesting to see how this works out for him. 

chessdude123 (102): Malygos Druid, Mid Hunter, Freeze Mage, Mid Shaman, Control Warrior

Bbgungun (101): Token Druid, Face Secret Hunter, Tempo Mage, Mid Shaman, Zoo Warlock, 

Nostam (101): Malygos Druid, Secret Hunter (list below), Tempo Mage, Aggro Shaman, Pirate Warrior

SilentStorm (94): Malygos Druid, Tempo Mage, Mid Shaman, Zoo Warlock, C'Thun Warrior

noblord (93): Ramp Druid, Tempo Mage, Mid Shaman, Zoo Warlock, Control Warrior

 

The event begins on PlayHearthstone's Twitch from 9pm PDT, which is Midday CEST.

Why is OMG A PRIEST DECK IN A SANCTIONED TOURNAMENT is not all over the preview?

All eyes are on fr0zen at the moment, regardless of how memeing you are. Good news is that he manages to dodge the only non-Control Warrior in the Ro8. Honestly, I haven't seen a 5-deck targeting lineup in a long time, so that would be a delight regardless of outcomes.

But honestly, this Last Call looks like the best in terms of player quality. Here we have 8 really good players who can win the whole thing each. I'm hyped up!

Nostam plays an unusual-ish secret hunter w/ Leeroy and Rag, pirate warrior and aggro shaman. I think those are some interesting choices.

I really wonder how this will work in tournament.

Yeah, Nostam brought something that was similar to fr0zen - a focused, targeting line-up, albeit with Aggresive decks. That was a good strategic idea.

But they are both out of competition in the Ro8. FeelsBadMan.

The hype was real, but the emotional rollercoaster is just too much :(

      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).

      This week's Tavern Brawl is a repeat of Double Deathrattler Battler. It is a Brawl where you use your own cards to build a deck. Every Deathrattle will trigger twice.
      Although this is a repeat Brawl, it has been a long time since it was last used, September 2015 in fact, and many things in the game have changed since then. In that regard it can be treated as a fresh Brawl. I would like to see this idea of waiting a long time between reusing a Brawl be implemented more often, to help keep them fresh.
      On top of trying to win games, I expect lots of people to have fun experimenting with Weasel Tunneler, as many of its interactions do not work correctly, as per our previous article.

      It does seem as if cards from the Curse of Naxxramas adventure will be very good in this Brawl. Baron Rivendare doesn't stack however, meaning you don't get four times the Deathrattles if he is in play!

      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.
