Tavern Brawl: Heart of the Sunwell

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!

      This week's episode features a fresh take on a popular deck, courtesy of Casie.
      Can you guess the next move?
      Situation #22: Let's Even the Odds
      Picking up where we left off last week, we find ourselves in the middle of an odd/even matchup between Warlock and Shaman. I picked this situation partially because it was an interesting spot with many options available to us, and also because its a ladder situation I highly doubt any of my readers have encountered before:

      Commenters quickly identified several key factors about this matchup, namely that Defile and Hellfire are off the table for our opponent and that the only "board clear" available for our opponent is Despicable Dreadlord. Our opponent is more likely to have single target removal (such as Voodoo Doll) or is looking to play a demon-related 5 drop next turn in Skull of the Man'ari, Possessed Lackey, or Doomguard.
      Bozonik summed up this situation excellently in his comment from last week's thread:
      There seemed to be a consensus among commenters that "Option 1", Hero Power + Sea Giant was the line here. It puts a big nasty minion on the board, applying pressure and forcing our opponent to have Voodoo Doll. In the heat of the moment I went with "Option 2", the full clear, but after looking back on things and reading over the comments I believe Hero Power + Giant was the correct line. Despicable Dreadlord is really the only card which gives us serious trouble next turn (since our opponent won't be able to play Possessed Lackey and kill it) and this line plays around Dreadlord while applying just as much pressure as the other options.
      I was secretly hoping that the tap + Giant wasn't the correct line here (because its the most obvious one), but the obvious solution is often the correct one. If you're ever in a situation such as this where you have no idea what your opponent is up to, it's probably best to go for the "obvious" line and not get cute.
      Situation #23: Broken Mirrors
      Today's deck comes courtesy of Kevin "Casie" Eberlein, who cut the dragon package from Mind Blast Priest to turn the deck into something with much more of a combo/aggro feel to it. Many pros are pegging Mind Blast Priest to be the next "best deck in the meta" after the nerfs drop, and Casie's list has a serious advantage in the mirror match:
      Though I didn't find nearly as much success with the deck as Casie did, it did provide me with plenty of interesting situations for What's the Move! Here's the one I ended up choosing for this week's episode:

      It's turn 2, we're on The Coin, and our ladder opponent just played a Wild Pyromancer. For the purposes of this exercise, we can say that we're 100% confident our opponent is on Mind Blast Priest. However, this isn't a mirror match at all. We have Prophet Velen, Holy Smite, two copies of Holy Fire (most Mind Blast Priests run just one), and Lifedrinker in our deck, which gives us a huge advantage in late-game Anduin vs Anduin races. Knowing that we have an advantage in the late game should color our decision heavily on turn two, where have a surprising number of options available to us.
      So, what's the move?
