This week's Tavern Brawl is called Top 2. In this Brawl you pick two cards and you are given a deck filled with just those two cards.


This is the 48th Tavern Brawl, and it might be the best one yet. The first deck that people were playing was composed of Mana Wyrm and Arcane Missiles. It seems that you can't stop Tempo Mage cards from being strong in Brawls. However, other decks are definitely viable. Mechwarper, for instance, is a really powerful card in multiples, while nearly any 2-card combo you have always wanted to achieve is pretty much certain to end up in your hand.

My effort is shown below on the left, while Sottle's is on the right.

At first this Brawl seems one-dimensional, but there are quite a few things to try out. It remains to be seen whether this Brawl will have much replay value, but the hour or so I played around with it, I had a lot of fun.

I have deliberately not posted all of the combinations I found in this post, but feel free to post your favourites in the comments.

My most successful so far has been Warlock with Forbidden Ritual and Knife Juggler.

 

Some fairly strong combos I've seen opponents with have been Living Roots with Call of the Wild on Druid and Bilefin Tidehunter and Evolve on Shaman.

I had a lot of fun playing Druid, using Innervate and Raven Idol.  Pretty easy to get your pick of minions and spells, and have the mana to play them.

I've had some decent luck playing Murloc Tidecaller and Murloc Warleader. I also saw a Mechwarper/Metaltooth Leaper Hunter deck that killed me on turn 2 by using coin on turn 1 and hero power on turn 2.

I tried several variations but by far the most successful (and annoying) was Mage with Ice Block + Fireball.

 

As long as you draw a fair number of Ice Blocks, it's nearly impossible to lose.

Include Ice Lance for Fireball and you are good to go. Just wait till you got 9 of them for 32dmg.

HI,

After bad start with "Flash heal" + "Mind blast", change to combination of "Twilight whelp" + "Museum curator" show great results, for now more then 10 wins in row.

:D

Simple, fun and enjoyable. Definitely top 2 on my list of favorite brawls (yes, I did this pun sorry).

Also, easy and fast dailies and gold cap are always a pleasure.

Good call on Ice Lance.

One thing to note about Ice Block. It won't prevent you from dying to Curse of Rafaam.

How do you lose on turn 2 with mechwarper/metaltooth?

Ice lance is just inferior to fireball, mostly because you can't gradually kill your opponent, and you can't rely on getting to the point where you have 9 lances against most decks, especially the board flood ones with mechwarper or coldlight oracle.

Fireball+ice block is actually just broken.

Nope. Innervate + Coldlight Oracle should easily beat this. Ice block won't save you from fatigue damage.

arcane missiles + flamewaker   ..op as hell 

 

Clockwork gnome + Flamewaker is good too.

 

i agree but getting random spells could do just the same ..but i prefer the consistency from the arcane missiles and    just keep building a board till u can burst damage ffor lots of damage ...but ill try the clockwork dude for sure ...

My combos so far... Prepare for lulz.

Wisp+Evole.

Shieldbearer+bolster.

Equality+Wild pyromancer.

Innervate+Shifter Zerus.

Angry Chicken+Mark of the wild.

Sorcerer Apprentice+Cabalist tome(Slow but fun.)

Ancestors call+Any ridiculous legendary. Notably Nefarian and on the epic list, blood of the old god.

Stupid fun.

Edit: Ysera, not Nefarian. Got my damn dragons mixed up.

      Dave Kosak introduces us to the Monster Hunt, which will be available in a week.
      The Lead Mission Designer was joined by two of his associates to discuss the newest PvE mode, which will come along with The Witchwood. Paul Nguyen talked about the four heroes. Tess Greymane has a Hero Power that lets her Discover any class card that has been played in a game (by both players) and add it to your hand.
      Darius Crowley has an indestructible cannon minion that can be activated via Darius' Hero Power and fire at the minions across it. Positioning will matter, as you can kill two enemy minions at once and the Hero Power will refresh each time you kill a minion with your cannon. There weren't any details on Houndmaster Shaw or Toki, Time-Tinker, but it was hinted that the former hero will have something to do with Rush (just like its card counterpart).
      Giovanni Scarpati discussed bosses and treasures. The Monster Hunt will feature over 45 unique boss encounters. As Ben Brode had revealed in an earlier interview, each hero will have its own final boss, called "nemesis fight". For Crowley it's Lord Godfrey, for Shaw it's Glinda Crowskin and for Toki it's her own future self! When you clear the Monster Hunt with all four heroes (and win four packs), you get to face Hagatha as the last boss. Ultimately, as far as the treasures are concerned, there are a few returning ones from the Dungeon Run, but most are new. There are also hero exclusive treasures, as well as unique treasures "dropping" from rare boss encounters.
      You should definitely watch the video to get a glimpse of all the new stuff coming with the Monster Hunt. And don't forget: it's release date is April 26 at 10:00 am PDT!

      Start stocking up on vials of holy water and cannonballs, because The Witchwood’s free, single-player missions, the Monster Hunt, goes live on April 26 at 10:00 a.m. PDT!
      Join Lead Mission Designer Dave Kosak, along with Mission Designers Paul Nguyen and Giovanni Scarpati, for a Hearthside Chat that will equip you with everything you need to know for a successful Monster Hunt!
      Ready for Action
      If you played the Dungeon Run in Kobolds & Catacombs, the Monster Hunt will be eerily familiar—but much is different! Rather than choosing one of Hearthstone’s nine classes, you’ll take on the role of one of four veteran monster hunters, each with a special ability that you’ll need to make the most of if you hope to survive the hunt.
      Your hunter will venture deep into the Witchwood on Hagatha’s trail, defeating a series of monstrous bosses who dare to cross your path. With each victory, you’ll build a stronger and stronger deck with the items you find. You may encounter some trusty old equipment out in the forest, but much of what you’ll find will be entirely new, including treasures unique to certain foes. Each monster hunter has their own favorite tricks—a special hero power or ability that you’ll need to master if you hope to survive the hunt. Each hunter also carries a grudge against a heinous nemesis in the woods: a unique boss that only they can track down to fight.

      You’ll want to go on a Monster Hunt with every hunter, because each offers a quest that will earn you a Witchwood card pack. And if you’ve got the mettle to complete the Monster Hunt with all four hunters, you’ll finally have a chance to face off with the real witch in the woods: Hagatha! If you can free the wood from Hagatha’s curse, you’ll earn the gratitude of Gilneas and the Monster Hunter card back!

      We hope you enjoyed learning more of what lurks ahead in Monster Hunt! We’re eager to hear your tales of The Witchwood on social media using the #Witchwood hashtag. Learn more about The Witchwood at TheWitchwood.com!
      We’ll see you on the hunt!
