1 post in this topic


The special edition Celestial Invitational, organized by the well-known Hearthstone Chinese team Team Celestial, concluded yesterday. Lifecoach claimed the first place and $10,000 with it.

The Celestial Invitational featured the 8 previews winners of the Celestial Championship Series held in China only, along with 8 invited international players. These 16 players battled for a total prize pool of $25,000 ($10,000 first, $5,000 second, $2,500 third and fourth, $1,250 fifth to eight place).

The tournament had a Conquest, best out of five format. At a first stage, the players were divided into four groups of four players. Within a group, contestants had to play all nine different classes each in a round robin. Two players qualified from each group into the playoffs. From the quarter-finals and onward, the bracket changed to single elimination, whereas the finalists had to play again all nine different classes (meaning they couldn't play the same decks they used for the quarter and semi-finals).


Even though it seems slightly chaotic, this format allowed the contestants to bring a variety of decks to the tournament. They also had to plan ahead and think which classes to play against which opponent. Finally, the fact that they had to create and win with decks for all nine classes was a true measurement of their individual skill.


In the end, it was Lifecoach who took the crown, with tom60229 placing second, and Kolento and Jiesha taking the third and fourth places. You can watch English VoDs of the Celestial Invitational in DTwo's Youtube channel.

      We have a new Tavern Brawl this week! Its name is Spellbook Duel.
      For this Brawl, you choose your class and then you pick 10 different cards to fill your deck. Instead of drawing cards each turn, you Discover a copy of a card from your deck. If you use card drawing mechanics, like Arcane Intellect, you don't actually draw from your deck. You will, in fact, get a 1-mana spell called Peruse, which again allows you to Discover a copy of a card from your deck.
      Obviously, there are a lot of possible deck combinations you can use to tackle this new Tavern Brawl. The first things that pop into mind are anything that contains Reno Jackson and Kazakus, as well as Jade Druid to extend the possibility of getting these precious Jade Idols. Once again, Mage is the clear winner of this Brawl with cards like Sorcerer's Apprentice, Arcane Intellect and Flamewaker.
      Bear in mind that some cards are not recommended, since they remove cards from your Discover pool. Examples are Fel Reaver and Tracking. Moreover, cards that put another card directly into play, like Mysterious Challenger and Mad Scientist, will also make your Discover pool smaller. Lastly, according to a Reddit user, Renounce Darkness won't deduct 1 mana from the cards you discover throughout the game.
      There are already a lot of disgusting decks for Spellbook Duel out there. We are waiting for your suggestions and any other useful info in the comments!
