Tavern Brawl: Clockwork Card Dealer

This week's Tavern Brawl is Clockwork Card Dealer. It is a repeat Brawl and involves using your collection to build a deck.

The rules for this Brawl are that you get dealt a one cost card from your deck on turn one, a two cost card on turn two, and so on until turn ten. If there is a turn where there is no card of the appropriate cost in your deck, you will get a random card from your deck. Last time this Brawl was released was October 7 last year, at the height of the Secret Paladin meta. It is likely that Secret Paladin will be a powerful deck again this time around, as Mysterious ChallengerDr. Boom, and even Muster for Battle are still all fantastic cards to play on curve.

There are plenty of other strategies available though. You are, for instance, guaranteed to draw your C'Thun on turn ten, and you will draw whichever cultists you want to in the lead up to that. This Brawl rewards creative thinking, with the only drawback being that you might need a large collection to be very competitive.

Cards with discover can help out a lot if you feel that your collection is lacking at a certain mana point.

Also keep in mind how each class works. Mage and Shaman have a lot of strong 3's. You might want to include just one or two to guarantee your draw but then throw in aJeweled Scarabor two to open up your options. Also for rogue keep in mind that if you're constantly drawing cards on curve, it may be difficult to land early cards with combo. C'thun rogue is a little easier to execute, since you can get the Blade of C'Thunturn nine and C'Thun turn ten 100% of the time.

I just played Freeze Mage. Being guaranteed to draw your Alexstrasza exactly when you need her (on Turn 9) does help a lot. :)

I tried a denounce lock first, after 0/8 gave it up, as apparantly RNG does not like the deck.

Next and last up was a druid astral deck with an easy 2 and 3 drop, and all the big minions from past and present. Did me a solid 4/0 before I called this Brawl.

      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.

      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.

      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)
