Can someone explain the rationale behind Flametongue being at "average" because that definitely seems a bit low...

Can someone explain the rationale behind Flametongue being at "average" because that definitely seems a bit low...

Flametongue Totem is extremely situational as you require a rather solid board setup in order to get full benefit out of the card - in other words, you can't just pop it on an empty board and expect it to bring in the value. Because of this dependency you should compare Flametongue Totem to other class cards and not neutral minions and I believe that you wouldn't pick Flametongue over Rockbiter Weapon or Stormforged Axe, nor would you pick it over Forked Lightning or Lightning Bolt if it was your first card to pick.

I do agree however that "average" doesn't sound right for Flametotem, because its a good card, the other cards in those tiers are simply better. :)

I think the list is lacking feral spirits.

They are Rare cards, and, as such, are listed in the Rare tab :)

Sorry but you have to be nuts to consider Flametongue average. It raises in value based on the number of lower cost creatures and token generators in your deck. Situational? Forked lightning is very situational. severely hampers your tempo if played early on and not guaranteed to hit it's targets. Cleave is very solid because it doesn't ruin your next turn.

 

Flametongue is one of the very top commons for Shaman.  If it doesn't work for you then you're not playing it properly or your drafting style revolves around too many high cost minions.

Normally I consider picking a Fire Elemental and some early removal over it during the initial picks, however I seem to have overlooked it at the spreadsheet and you are absolutely right. Flametongue is amazing. Will adjust it asap.

Thanks for pointing it out, IcyMist

      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.
