Surprised to see no one else has left a comment. I got to this guide by google, and although i've been playing for a decent time (+1 year), i never understood the concept of Tempo and Tempo decks as clearly as now i do.

Great guide, really easy to understand, but goes in depth listing some popular decks and situations we've been through. Really good job by Sottle, as always!

I'm slightly confused by this example:

 

"For example, lets evaluate the card SI:7 Agent, using the Mana as Tempo units system explained earlier. On turn 2, your opponent has played a Knife Juggler, you respond by using The Coin to play SI:7 Agent, killing their Knife Juggler, they then play a 3 Mana minion with 3 Health and your SI:7 Agent trades for it on the board."

 

Knife Juggler has 3 attack and SI:7 Agent has 3 health, so how come our SI:Agent doesn't die when it attacks Knife Juggler?

Knife Juggler has 2 attack, actualy. The article is right, friend.

Their comment is actually from before the nerf, I believe. Their confusion was due to not knowing that SI can deal 2 damage when used with combo, rather than attacking it directly.

Been playing Tempo Rogue for a couple months now. Read this, and immediately understood the reason for a few losses today. Another example or two would help further, but as is this article as fantastic, and the extant examples are great.

      Aleco walks through a series of simple early-game decisions while playing an Unstable Evolution deck.
      "Simple early game decisions" and "multi-turn decisions" are the two most common requests I've been receiving since the start of this series, so I decided to do an episode that tackles both! In today's episode I navigate a series of relatively simple early-game decisions against an aggressive Hunter start with my Unstable Evolution Shaman deck.
      If you have any requests for future episodes of "What's the Move?", please feel free to reach out to me here on Icy Veins or via Twitter @Aleco_P. I prefer to always fulfill requests for new episodes if possible, and always love hearing feedback from the community which can help me improve on this series in the future. Don't be shy!

      Choose your champion for the upcoming Hearthstone World Championships to win free K&C packs!
      The biggest Hearthstone tournament of the year, the Hearthstone World Championship, is just around the corner! To help build up excitement for the tournament, players may now select a champion from among the 16 world championship competitors. Each round your champion advances in the tournament will reward you with more Kobolds & Catacombs packs. You can win up to 6 packs of K&C for selecting the winner of the tournament, so choose wisely! Once you've locked in your choice it can not be changed.
      Anyone with a Battle.net account can select a champion for free until midnight on January 17th (Pacific Standard Time), and there's no downside to selecting the wrong champion. All you need to do is follow this link and select one of the 16 competitors. Personally, I'm sticking with Purple because he won me 3 packs at the Summer Championship and appears to be the favorite to win his group. Kolento and Surrender are two of the favorites to win the tournament, which would make them safe bets to win you some packs as well.

      After a couple of repeats, this is 2018's first new Tavern Brawl.
      This is a constructed Brawl, with the novelty that you can build a deck of any size. The rest of the cards will be Shadow Reflections, which is normally generated by the passive Hero Power of the Rogue Death Knight Valeera the Hollow. It should be noted that when you play second, you don't get the coin; you draw an extra card instead.
      Obviously, you don't want to make a deck of 30 cards, since you will have no Shadow Reflections (although people have had success even like this). However, you also don't want to make a deck of only 1-3 cards, given that the Reflections take actual spots in the deck and it will be hard drawing the cards you picked.
      By doing a quick research, it seems that Aggro Paladin and Aggro Druid are good picks. As is usually the case when some good decks surface, their counters are also created: in this case, it's Mage with Ice Lance and Combo Priest. Moreover, Quest Rogue has managed to make a surprise re-appearance from the dead in this Brawl. Lastly, a hilarious deck is the Hunter one with Mechwarper and Metaltooth Leaper.
      Good luck!
