Yesterday, Kripparrian earned the attention of the Hearthstone community by completing an outstanding achievement: he won 106 games in 10 Arena runs!

You might have heard of the 100 in 10 Arena challenge, originally created by Amaz, the owner of Team Archon. The first person to beat it was TwoBiers back in March with his run of 103 games in 10 Arena keys. Afterwards, Twitch and Archon partnered up and made the challenge into an official monthly competition. While it wasn’t widely publicised, another Arena player, Mef, was the second player to complete this challenge two weeks ago – with exactly 100 wins in 10 runs, 9 classes and even a couple of disconnects! Lastly, 23 days ago Woett achieved 202 wins in 20 consecutive Arena runs, a truly insane feat which was recognised by Hearthstone devs on Reddit.

Obviously, most of you know Kripparrian, who isn’t only a popular streamer, but has also earned some significant achievements in other games (like World of Warcraft, Diablo III, Path of Exile and Guild Wars 2). Kripparrian’s popularity rose significantly when he started playing and streaming Hearthstone, while he’s also considered one of the best Arena players in the world.

Kripparrian has stated in the past that he wasn’t going to pursue the official 100 in 10 challenge and yesterday’s triumph was just a personal achievement. Indeed, he only played with 6 classes (Warlock, Rogue, Mage, Shaman, Warrior and Paladin), while the challenge’s rules state that the player should always pick a class that he/she hasn’t played yet.

Still, Kripparrian technically beat the 100 wins in 10 Arena runs part of the whole challenge, since he actually achieved 101 victories in 9 runs (with the total score being 106 in 10). An amazing fact is that for the first 7 runs he had a streak of 12 wins each run! Then, in his 8th run he had a 5-3, followed by another 12-win run and then another 5-3 on his 10th and last run. Here are the lists for his eight 12-win decks:

Kripparrian also completed another personal achievement during his 106 in 10 (or 101 in 9) streak. He achieved a score of 12-0 with all classes in Arena. Warrior was the last class he needed and he succeeded in doing a 12-0 with it during his 4th Arena run. Kripp posted a video about his experience:

You can watch a vod of Kripp’s last 3 runs here. To sum up, while he wasn’t officially participating in the 100 in 10 challenge, Kripparian has set the bar quite high for all other Arena players. We are eager to see what other challenge he will set for himself in the future!

      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!
