On October 25 and 26, GamersOrigin, in coproduction with Ogaming and in partnership with E-sport 42, invite you to join us on stream for the biggest ever world class Hearthstone tournament: the GamersOrigin Cup#2. Nearly 500 players are expected for this unprecedented event in Paris. The organizers, GamersOrigin and O’gaming are two well-knowned french organizations with proven expertise in major video game events.

 

During 2 days, the players will fight their way through the brackets to try to take a piece of the 6000€ cashprize home. Renowned participants such as the defending champion Savjz and fellow competitors GreenSheep, Lowelo, Thefishou, ThijsNL, Ek0p or Xixo will have to prove themselves once again against half a thousand players eager to take them down.

The stream will begin at 1:00 PM Paris time (7:00 AM EDT, 4:00 AM PDT) on day 1 and 1:00 PM Paris time (8:00 AM EDT, 5:00 AM PDT due to european time change) on day 2 and will feature show matches and special guests in addition to the main tournament commentary.

      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.
