The Tavern Brawl for this week (January 27 - February 1) is called Miniature Warfare.

 

After yesterday's suspicious tweet from @PlayHearthstone, we were expecting some sort of Tavern Brawl with a deck filled with x type of minions facing another deck with z type of minions (for example, murlocs versus mechs). Since we didn't get it this week, we guess it's either going to be a future Tavern Brawl or perhaps it's related to a future update/expansion. Or nothing at all!

 

 

Anyway, this week's Tavern Brawl is Miniature Warfare. It's the type of Tavern Brawl, where you pick your class and make your own deck. The rules are that all minions cost 1 mana and they have 1 attack & 1 health.

Yeah, I know, my American account is really bad...

 

As you can see,  all types of minions are affected - even the ones created by spells (like Mirror Image or Feral Spirit) or the ones created by other minions (like Dragonling Mechanic or Cairne Bloodhoof). The minions that are actually good for this Brawl are the ones that buff themselves as long as a specific condition exists, like Blood Knight, Draenei Totemcarver and Frostwolf Warlord. The classes that are probably going to shine are Druid, Mage and Rogue, since they have beneficial Hero Powers and cards like Swipe, Arcane Explosion (oh yes!) and Fan of Knives.

 

Good luck!

      As the trend is in latest expansions, we have yet another minion that supports the Healing/Control Paladin archetype.
      The card was revealed by PhenomenGames on YouTube. The video is in Russian.

      Paladin gets its own version of Hooked Reaver. It's not clear whether you need to restore Health on your hero or you can just heal any minion for this to work. A lot of cards have been printed in the latest expansions that promote this archetype of Paladin deck (even though Aggro Paladin always ends up winning) and maybe it is its time to shine. Other than that, Zandalari Troll Paladins are soon coming to World of Warcraft and it's good to see them in Hearthstone as well!

      The Rogue Legendary Loa has just been unveiled!
      The reveal was made by MKRR3 on YouTube. The video is in Polish.

      Gral, the Shark has a Tutor effect but it quite weak to Silence. Still, Rogue has quite a few ways to trigger the Deathrattle and now with Spirit of the Shark, it can trigger the Battlecry twice as well. At first sight, though, it feels like a weak card: Silence destroys it, high mana cost and Rogue traditionally runs quite a few small minions as well. It also doesn't seem to fit with the Pirate theme Rogue will have in Rastakhan's Rumble, altough perhaps we can see Beast Rogue with Oondasta and the recently revealed Untamed Beastmaster.

      Two new cards were revealed by Asian streamers: an Epic neutral minion and the Paladin Spirit.
      The first card was unveiled by Chinese streamer LaLaLa on Douyu.

      The first thought that comes when looking at this card is that it's great support for Quest Hunter. The problem is support cards for this archetype were printed in previous expansions and the result was always the same. Beast King could definitely fit into a Beast deck along with Oondasta - and since they are both Neutral cards, this doesn't necessarily have to be Hunter. Hi'reek, the Warlock Loa, and his copies could benefit from the +2/+2 buff. Beast King could also find its place in a Beast Druid deck with minions like Charged Devilsaur and Tyrantus. These Warlock and Druid combos, though, sound a bit like win-more situations.
      The Paladin Spirit was revealed by Korean streamer (and dancer) Rhdgurwn.

      The text box may not be the final version as "stats equal to its Cost" is a bit vague, since it could mean a 4/4 or a 3/1 or a 1/3 or a 2/2. However, it would make sense that if you cast a 4-mana spell, the Spirit would summon a 4/4 Tiger and that's how we are going to treat it. At 4 mana, this different version of Summoning Stone seems a bit slow and definitely promotes a more Spell Control-oriented playstyle, which is what Paladin seems to be heading to in Rastakhan's Rumble. It definitely makes for a strong combo with Spikeridged Steed.

      The iconic final boss of Zul'Gurub is one of the neutral Legendaries of Rastakhan's Rumble and it seems slightly underwhelming.
      The reveal was made by Forbes. There's also an interview with Dave Kosak and Liv Breeden on the card, as well as a video with its gameplay.

      It's amazing how faithful this card is to the Corrupted Blood mechanic from World of Warcraft that led to an actual epidemic in the game - which even became a topic of study by the Centre for Disease Control. Hakkar definitely puts a timer on the match once his Deathrattle triggers and could be used to break Combo decks. However, the fact that it's a Deathrattle and not a Battlecry decreases its power and you still have to build a whole deck around it. Then again, a lot of people thought Mecha'thun wouldn't work when it was released and it has proven to be quite successful.
