The StreamMe Team Twist tournament took place over the weekend. Sixteen teams battled it out for a $2500 first prize, and after two long days of competition, Team Archon emerged as the champions. The format was best of five Last Hero Standing, with a ban.

Team Archon featured Zalae alongside Americas winter champion, Amnesiac. Their route to the final was a difficult one. In the first round they overcame team SALTBOYS comprising of Rdu and Chakki 3-2. Next up were Complexity, with recent qualifiers from the Europe spring preliminary, Loyan and Crane333. Archon again came through a tough encounter 3-2, taking down RenoLock in the last game with their Face Shaman. In the semi-final they played the Gamers League pair of Diggen and Devou, two players who have also performed well in recent Hearthstone Championship Tour events. This time they came through 3-1, to set up a match with Celestial's team of SilentStorm and Neobility in the final. The final was a short match, Archon spotted a weakness win Celestial's lineup and banned Shaman. This enabled their Freeze Mage to sweep through to a 3-0 win by beating Druid, Zoo, and Rogue.

Archon's lineup was an interesting one. They brought the more regular decks of Zoo and Aggro Shaman, alongside the control that Freeze Mage provides. For their fourth deck however, they brought Patron Warrior. Patron is widely regarded as inferior to Tempo Warrior at the moment, but in the meta at the tournament, it was a great choice. Zalae tweeted the decklists after the event.

The final was not the only sweep of the event. There were six of them in the event, but it was notable that they were achieved with five different classes: Zoo, Control Warrior, Shaman, Rogue and Freeze Mage. This seems to be a great indicator that the meta is balanced, with no deck consistently sweeping through opposing lineups.

      The latest Hearthstone community contribution allows you to train the skills needed to master Combo Priest: quick thinking, fast mouse movements, strategic decisions and on-the-spot calculations. What's more to ask?!
      Combo or OTK or APM Priest is a reiteration of Combo and Vivid Nightmare Priest that was born with The Boomsday Project thanks to two cards: Topsy Turvy and Test Subject. Dog is credited as the creator and true master of the deck:
      Many have subsequently tried and failed to pilot the deck, which can require almost 100 moves during the 75 seconds of a single turn. Pro players like Trump and Thijs have hilariously failed, while others like Disguised Toast and Kolento kept trying until they got the hang of it.
      Right now, you might be dreading that you don't have the IQ to play this deck. Fear no more: everything can be practiced and Patashu has made the tool for it! Combo Priest Simulator allows you to practice the OTK combo on your browser, while also timing you. You can change the parameters of the starting gamestate, too.
      In all seriousness, the deck's winrate is below average and it's honestly too much trouble for too little gain. Then again, slamming your opponent's face for 100+ damage is quite satisfactory. It would be awesome if someone was brave enough to bring this deck at a tournament: it would be the casters' nightmare!
      Apart from Combo Priest Simulator, we have a guide for Topsy Turvy OTK Priest here on Icy Veins; the guide breaks down the necessary steps of the combo in a useful priority list. Alternatively, you can listen to Aleco trying to explain how the deck works to Patrick (and actually succeeding) in the latest Icy Veins Podcast!
