hearthstone Hearthstone Tavern Brawl: Shadow Towers

17 posts in this topic

qVUd8gB.jpg

There is a new Tavern Brawl this week! It is the 50th Tavern Brawl and it is called Shadow Towers.

After quite a while, a make-your-own deck type of Tavern Brawl is back! The rule of this Tavern Brawl is simple, yet interesting: your minions have stealth the first turn they are played. The rule applies no matter how many minions you play in a single turn; they will all get stealth during their first turn on the board. You will start with 30 Health and 10 Armor.

You can make quite a lot of fun decks for this Brawl. Board clears are definitely very powerful and essential. Non-targeted spells, like Flamecannon, Arcane Missiles, Cleave and Deadly Shot, although you should always take into account the RNG element of these spells.

Taunts are definitely not that good for this Tavern Brawl. On the other hand, Flame Juggler, and Wild Pyromancer and Knife Juggler combos can definitely shine. Two additional cards that can prove useful are Doomsayer and – yes, time to finally see some play – Validated Doomsayer! Just imagine the hilarious combos you can do with the latter card; with 7 health it’s extremely difficult to remove. Lastly, Emperor Thaurissan will be able to tick twice in most circumstances, as it’s also a difficult body to remove.

Miracle Rogue can be a very strong choice this week, but you should definitely consider any class with hard aoe removals. Remember Tavern Brawls are in Wild Format, so you can include cards like Lightbomb or any other GvG or Naxxramas card you might think is useful.

Feel free to share your deck suggestions! Good luck and have fun!

Alarm-o-bot is incredibly effective in this one too.

I feel shaman is very strong in this brawl. He has Flametongue TotemThunder Bluff ValiantMana Tide Totem and surely more cards that I can't remember. Hunters have a potentionlly very powerful tool - Flare (not sure if it works). Also, there are two very powerful cards that do not really see much play in constructed - Kodorider and Confessor Paletress. They can win games on their own.

I do not see how Flame Juggler is that powerful in this brawl, as you say. It is a battlecry, so it triggers and you get just a stealthed River Crocolisk - a 2/3 with no abilities. Could you please explain?

Maybe they meant Flamewalker?

With a bit of luck, if played on turn 2 he can remove any 1-mana 1-health minion (and there is quite a few of them) or divine shield in the case of argent-whatever-her-name-is, while he remains an extremely solid 2-mana body. I encountered him in the few games I played before writing this article and I thought he was good. I guess I am mistaken.

Flamewaker is also really good, true. :D

I haven't met many 1-drops, and when I did, they were Tunnel Troggs. So, of course, Flame Juggler would be pretty useless in that situation, compared to other 2-drops. Also, the main weakness of Flame Juggler is the RNG - you have 50% chance to get screwed over and that can lose you the game. It could be good against Zoo, which I have seen only in spectate mode, so, I guess Flame Juggler could be of some use, but there are better 2-drops out there,

Well between answering to people claiming that the Blizzard Legion Beta key giveaway is fake and I shouldn't have made an article about it, being out doing stuff all day, doing the Brawl article as quickly as possible with adding some nice info (I think I published it 30 mins after it was released, only playing like 3-4 games) and going to a gym class like 45 mins after Brawl's release, I think I did an okay job reporting on it without just mentioning basic info (like most other sites do when publishing articles so fast).

But hey, bashing me in public is also cool. Thanks.

My 3rd game, I played a Dust Devil, to which my opponent replied with a Flame Juggler, which killed my Dust Devil.

So, Flame Juggler was a good card for them, sure.

Been playing Freeze mage without any losses so far. 10-0. 

The usual freeze build
- random draw
+ 2 flamestrikes for that stealthed board control

Works wonders with that 10 extra armor

Unfortunately, I don't have freeze mage :(

However, I have had some success with a midrange-ish paladin. I've gone 5-0 with the deck so far.

The key cards to include are equality (2 of them), 2 knfe jugglers, 2 consecrations, 2 keeper of uldmans, and maybe an wild pyromancer. I've found also that tirion and quartermaster are both pretty good, but you could try stormwind champion.

Thought it could be fun to play hunter with all the various class spells, but one thing worth noting is that whatever they did to implement one-turn-stealth, it's not cleared by flare, or at least didn't when I tried it shortly after the brawl went live.

I think you did a fine job with the article. I myself have been very busy so I haven't had time to play but after reading this I know what I'll be stepping in to. Oh and thank you for mentioning  Validated Doomsayer, I forgot I had him. lol  Seems I finally get the chance to put him to use.

Thanks guys. To be honest, I was quite exhausted yesterday, that's why I was so cranky. I apologise for my previous post! :D

Now, that I've played the Brawl a bit more, I can say that I've seen a lot of diverse decks. Aggro decks, especially Shaman, seem to have the upper hand, but if they don't get the right draw, they can get destroyed by any good control deck like Freeze Mage or Warrior. Personally, I was beaten once by a Pirate Rogue (lol): he went face a lot and his buffed weapons were very strong.

Since Windfury is so good this time, I also had an idea about a VOL7RON deck with Mimiron's Head. It could work and I actually saw a deck for it on Hearthpwn!

I love Miracle Rogue <3 I am so glad it's back in the meta in general (not just in this Tavern Brawl). It's not as good as it was pre-Leroy and pre-Auctioneer nerf, but it's a great deck!

      The Europe Spring Playoffs and Championship took place over the weekend of May 20-21, which decided not only the new Europe Champion, but also the four players who would represent Europe at the Global Spring Championship in Shanghai next month.
      After seven rounds of Swiss, the top eight players cut to a knockout phase. The results of which were as follows:
        Hoej beat   FibEli3
        Neirea beat   INER
        Rdu beat   Casie
        Kolento beat   StanCifka
      This means that Hoej, Neirea, Rdu, and Kolento will represent Europe in the Global Championship. The top eight being so strong is a sign that the metagame is in a healthy place. All of the players were already known to be among the best in Europe, and despite their lineups differing substantially, they were still able to make it through.
      Hoej went on to take the title, beating Kolento 3-0 in the final. Hoej has been touted as one of the best players in Europe for some time, but traditionally has brought Control decks to major events. This time around, he brought a very aggressive lineup, and was rewarded for his willingness to adapt his style to the meta.
      The deck archetypes that each player brought to the event are listed below:
      Hoej: Aggro Druid, Secret Mage, Murloc Paladin, Pirate Warrior
      Kolento: Jade Druid, Midrange Paladin, Quest Rogue, Quest Warrior
      Neirea: Jade Druid, Discover Mage, Quest Rogue, Quest Warrior
      Rdu: Aggro Druid, Face Hunter, Aggro Shaman, Pirate Warrior
      The next four players to qualify for the Global Championship will be decided next week, with the Americas Spring Championships.

      The Hearthstone Championship Tour (HCT) European Spring Playoffs will take place this weekend, 20-21 May 2017.
      This will be the first playoff event since Journey to Un'Goro was released, and so if anyone has saved any surprise deck tech, this is the event where it will be revealed.
      The top 64 point earners, and ties, from the EU server will be joined by 8 Tavern Hero tournament qualifiers for the event, which will be played in esports bars across Europe. If you want to attend one of the events to cheer on your local favourite, the list of locations can be found here. There will be side events for anyone wishing to attend, with Blizzard prizes available for winners, and the Power Core cardback for all attendees.
      The point standings, showing the top 64, can be found here. As usual the event is stacked with many of the big names from the region. The top four will advance to the HCT Spring Global finals next month.

      Fight Promoter is promoting Hearthstone by giving itself away! Ok, that didn't make sense, but the point is everyone gets a fee card for just logging in this Saturday!
      Blizzard (source)
      Yeah, we can get you a card. Really! Log in to Hearthstone on Saturday, May 20, to get a Fight Promoter card for free!

      No catch, just a free card--so don’t miss out.
      We’ll see you in the tavern!

      There's a new update arriving in the coming weeks and it's going to bring a much requested feature to HS: completing quests while playing with your friends! The other big feature coming with this update is importing decklists, allowing you to easily copy and share your favorite decks without resorting to screenshots or outside sites! No specific ETA has been given and if you want to know all the details check out the announcement post below.
      Blizzard (source)
      Hearthstone’s upcoming update has a lot of cool stuff in it, but we wanted to call special attention to a couple of features that we’re particularly excited about. We think you’ll like them too!

      Friends Forever
      When the new Hearthstone update arrives, you’ll be able to complete quests in Friendly Challenges! Just issue a Friendly Challenge to someone on your Friends list and rack up credit for nearly any quest you can receive.
      Last year, the Friendly Feud allowed players to complete quests when they played with a friend. You gave us a ton of positive feedback about that event, and a lot of you asked us to have Friendly Feuds more often. We thought that was a good idea, so we took it a step further!
      There are some minor caveats. For example, any quests that can’t be completed as part of a Friendly Challenge aren’t eligible, such as those that require you to play vs The Innkeeper or watch a match. Most everything else is fair game though, so now you’ll have a reason to make friends with a recent opponent that isn’t just to send them a compliment.
      Sharing is Caring
      You’ll soon be able to easily copy and share decklists with Deck Importing! No more screen shotting decklists, or staring at a web page as you carefully build a deck, card by card. Trying—and sharing—a new decklist will be as simple as copy and paste!

      Here’s how it works:
      If your deck is already full, when you select the Hero portrait at the top of a deck in your collection, you’ll see a Copy button*. Press that button and your decklist will be copied to your clipboard. If you paste your decklist into a text document, it will look like this:
      Click to view sample decklist. See that conveniently highlighted ‘code’ near the bottom? That code also works on its own, making it easier to share a decklist with friends in chat or social media.
      Importing a decklist is easy. When you go to create the new deck, Hearthstone will “know” when you’ve got a valid decklist on your clipboard, so you’ll be asked if you’d like to create a new deck with the one you’ve got copied. Then you can watch your new deck be built before your eyes. You can also import decklists to Tavern Brawls!
      Don’t have all the cards a deck requires? No worries! In that case, it works just like a deck recipe. Any cards you don’t already own will appear insubstantial and you can select them for suggested replacements. You might also notice that your golden and non-golden cards now stack in decklists too!

      Deck Importing is great for finding and sharing new decks, but it’s also helpful for managing your library of decks. Save the code for decklists you rarely use, and when you’re ready to play one again, just copy and import it.
      The new update including these features will arrive in the coming weeks. We’re super excited about them, and we can’t wait to hear what you think! 
      * Desktop users can use ctrl+c to copy a decklist (you’ll get a confirmation when your copy is successful), then ctrl+v when viewing My Decks to import a decklist.
