The four groups for the group stage of the Hearthstone Championship Tour Finals have been announced. You can also win free The Grand Tournament packs by cheering on your favourite contestant.

The HCT regional and last call champions were split evenly into four groups of four, with each region being represented in each group. Out of all the groups, Group A looks like it's going to be the most interestings. The BlizzCon opening week will begin on October 26 with the Group Stage.

Meanwhile, you can vote for who you think is going to be the 2016 Hearthstone champion and win free TGT packs. The first voting period has already begun and it will last until October 25 at 11:59 p.m. PDT. You will win a single TGT pack just for participating in each voting period. Afterwards, you will receive one additional card pack from The Grand Tournament for every best-of-seven match your champion wins once chosen. You can earn up to 6 free packs if you participate from the first voting period and up to 4 packs, if you participate in the second voting period (beginning after the group stage and ending on November 3).

The sixteen players that are competing in the World Championship have qualified from one of the Season Championships or Last Call Invitationals and will be representing the Americas, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and China. They travelled a long road and faced some of the best players in the world along the way, but now they’ve arrived at the pinnacle of Hearthstone competition. The players have been divided into four groups and will play out the group stage during BlizzCon Opening Week. From there, two players from each group will advance to participate in the single-elimination bracket at BlizzCon

Group A - Cydonia, ThijsNL, Handsomeguy, JasonzhouCydonia, ThijsNL, Handsomeguy, Jasonzhou

Voting Periods

You may cast your vote starting now until October 25 at 11:59 p.m. PDT, when Opening Week begins. Voting will then be closed during Opening Week. If you happen to miss the first voting period, don’t fret! We’ll re-open voting after Opening Week has concluded and let anyone that missed out vote for a champion before BlizzCon begins. The second voting period will close at 11:59 p.m. on November 3, prior to the start of the BlizzCon bracket stage.

If you have already voted during the first voting period, you will not be able to vote again during the second voting period as your vote will have already been locked in. You are only eligible to receive additional packs for any matches your champion wins after you have chosen them. If you vote during the first voting period, you can earn up to 6 total packs (including your participation pack) depending on how well your champion performs. If you vote during the second voting period, you can earn up to 4 total packs (including your participation pack).

Choose your champion carefully!


Once you’ve selected your champion, be sure to tune in to all of the action on our official Hearthstone Twitch channel, and discuss the tournament using the #HCT hashtag on Twitter and Facebook.

      This thread is for comments about our Legendary Malygos Dragon Warlock Deck for TGT.

      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.

      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.
