Tavern Brawl: Heart of the Sunwell

17 posts in this topic

This week's Tavern Brawl is called "Heart of the Sunwell". It is the 53rd Tavern Brawl, and a repeat of the 6th ever Brawl.

Heart of the Sunwell has a simple premise; each player starts the game with ten mana. Each player builds a deck from their own collection of cards, and from there onwards, they play a game of Hearthstone with otherwise normal rules.

Since the last time this Brawl was used, there have been many more expensive minions printed at lower rarities. That should help towards making those with smaller collections remain competitive this time around. Alexstrasza will still be a prime card, as will removal spells. Mind Control is a very powerful card in this format.

At first glance, it does not seem to be a particularly fun Brawl, however, as the metagame evolves, building decks to counter the popular strategies can become enjoyable. The format is not as straightforward as it first appears.

For the stubborn among you, you can try to play Grim Patron with Bouncing Blade and other activators. You won't have a particularly high win rate, but you will eventually get a turn one board full of Patrons and ruin someone's day!

As always, you are encouraged to discuss your own favourite games and builds in the comments below.

Miracoli worked last time, I believe it will work now as well. Kripp has a video (skip the Kripp) of him playing the brawl last time with Miracle, and since not much has changed since, it should still be working imo.

I play a 7+ legendary heavy deck with reno, bgh and the emperor. I always get 2/3 of these cards which is enough to kick ass :)

Since I am poor, I just made a Priest deck with all acceptable legendaries I owned + all the steals, so I can make up for the big cards I lack by stealing them. I queue up against a Paladin, but it wasn't what I expected. He started flooding the board with all kinds of murlocs. So I played the Deathwing I had kept in the mulligan and he conceded.

It was hillarious :'D

Hunter combos with Buzzard, Rhino, Unleash, Hyena etc are glorious. I played against a Pally who played Boom + Squire, countered with Buzzard + Unleash + another beast to draw 5 cards :D

Despite the deck, Deathwing's got your back :P Won 2-3 games out of 6 just by playing him. My last game involved a priest playing Alexstraza turn 1 and Y'Shaarj turn 2. And he woulda've gotten away with it too if it weren't for that pesky Dragon!

      In episode two of "What's the Move?" Aleco discusses an open-ended situation which doesn't have a clear answer.
      In episode two of "What's the Move?" Aleco discusses an open-ended situation which doesn't have a clear answer.
      We kicked off this new series by analyzing a tricky situation which had only one optimal line of play. In episode two we'll take a look at a very different kind of situation, one where there might not be a perfect move at all.
      Please let us know in the comments what you would have done in this situation! One of the primary goals of this series is to foster improvement at Hearthstone by generating discussions. We would also love to hear your feedback on the video itself, as the series is still very new and has plenty room to improve on its format.

      In the latest Hearthstone update, Blizzard made adjustments to several cards. The patch is now live now on desktop and it should become available on mobile devices in the coming hours.
      Philosophy and reasons behind these changes can be found here.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Card Changes
      Innervate now reads: Gain 1 Mana Crystal this turn only. (Down from 2)
      Fiery War Axe now costs 3 mana.  (Up from 2)
      Hex now costs 4 mana. (Up from 3)
      Murloc Warleader now reads: Your other Murlocs have +2 Attack. (Down from +2 Attack, +1 Health)
      Spreading Plague now costs 6 mana. (Up from 5)

      A new Brawl has landed in the Tavern.
      Just like with the previous expansions, it's time to try out the deck recipes of Knights of the Frozen Throne in this week's Tavern Brawl. The archetypes for each deck recipe are the following:
      Druid: I guess the best name for this deck is Midrange Druid. It has Ultimate Infestation and Spreading Plague, so... PROFIT?! Deathrattle Hunter Elemental Mage Divine Shield Paladin Control Priest (you've probably seen variations of it in ladder) Jade Deathrattle Rogue Freeze Shaman Zoolock Control Warrior with Enrage minions This is a good opportunity to try out cards that you don't own. Good luck and have fun!

      The balance patch is arriving in the beginning of the next week.
      The wait is over! The anticipated card balance changes will arrive on September 18th and hopefully freshen up the meta a little bit. As the case always is with balance patches, for the next two weeks if you disenchant Spreading Plague and/or Murloc Warleader, you will get their full value in Arcane Dust.
      Daxxarri
      In the recent Upcoming Balance Changes – Update 9.1 blog, we discussed the details and philosophy behind balance updates that are coming to several Hearthstone cards:
       
      Innervate - Now reads: Gain 1 Mana Crystal this turn only. (Down from 2) Fiery War Axe - Now costs 3 mana. (Up from 2) Hex - Now costs 4 mana. (Up from 3) Murloc Warleader - Now reads: Your other Murlocs have +2 Attack. (Down from +2 Attack, +1 Health) Spreading Plague - Now costs 6 mana. (Up from 5)
      This patch is currently targeted for September 18th PDT. Please note that updates for mobile devices may take a few additional hours to propagate.

      Once these card changes are live, players will be able to disenchant cards that are not Basic (Murloc Warleader and Spreading Plague) for their full Arcane Dust value for two weeks. Basic cards cannot be disenchanted and will not be available for an Arcane Dust refund. (source)
