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!

      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!
