hearthstone Tavern Brawl: A Dark Recipe

11 posts in this topic

This week's Tavern Brawl appears for the first time and it is called A Dark Recipe.

For the 61st Tavern Brawl, you pick a class and you receive the equivalent Old Gods deck recipe (the third one) for the class you have chosen. This is a great Brawl for new players or for people that don't have all the necessary cards for these decks.

Here are the deck recipes:

  • Warrior: Serve the Old Gods (C'Thun)
  • Shaman: Minion Evolution (Evolve)
  • Rogue: Echoes of Death (Deathrattle/N'Zoth)
  • Paladin: Shields Up! (Divine Shield)
  • Hunter: Whispers of Death (Deathrattle/N'Zoth)
  • Druid: The Ancient Gods (C'Thun)
  • Warlock: Ancient Hordes (Zoo)
  • Mage: Madness and Magic (Yogg)
  • Priest: C'Thun's Clutch (guess what)

It would have been better releasing this Brawl a bit after the Whispers of the Old Gods expansion, instead of right before the new Karazhan adventure. It's still nice, though, that we got a new Brawl, even though it's not a particularly innovative one.

Good luck!

Although it is fun playing with all the WotoG cards as they were intended, it also feels like I am doing a tavern brawl which is almost the same as the metagame...

But for players with less 'disposable' income, it's a great way to see what they could have played the past months :D After the brawl they can move on to a new metagame where all the new cards are relatively free (as long as you make enough gold to purchase the adventures)

A skill-reliant premade brawl? This is what I've been waiting for, I love it. I don't really care that it's not that innovative because blizzard's last inovation killed priest (again). I will definitely try all the recipes. From what I've tried so far, shaman was really fun even though I got Magma Rager from evolving Totem Golem.

Evolve can be hilarious. I had an Evolve inspired lethal with Thing from Below into Antonidas for a fireball-induced finish.

Following this strategy as well, first try them all, to deduct evolve shaman has the most replay value.

Upside of this brawl above meta standard, is the fact you have no dragon warriors, face hunters or pirate warriors mauling your face, only competition is the everlasting zoo lock :)

Everyone I face seems to be playing mage. Luckily they're not very scary with their only threat being Antonidas and shaman has a load of ways to outvalue them.

Players use the mage deck becauss of Yogg-Saron, Hope's End. They want to play that card because it's fun, but they don't want to craft it because it's not as competitive as other legendaries, such as Archmage Antonidas or Sylvanas Windrunner. This brawl gives them a great opportunity to try it without having to craft it, which is pretty cool.

This has to be the most boring brawl ever. It's like you want to take a break from meta game and you end up playing a meta game again.

Is it just me, or are the results of that Old God's cooking a bit all over the place?

Don't change your day job, C'Thoonie!

On the contrary, the brawl is excellent for lower tier and F2P players to try out meta decks they never have the dust to make.

      Im making a telegram bot that can send you new decks and news from https://www.icy-veins.com/hearthstone.
      It already can send some decks and filter them by class and deck format.
      Im going to open bot for all users in next few weeks. 
      Any suggestions?

      Blizzard have announced that the next Hearthstone year will be called The Year of the Mammoth. Six cards from the Classic set will be moved to a new Hall of Fame set, which can only be played in Wild.
      The announcement explains that the new Hall of Fame set will include cards that are currently in the Reward set, but the big news here is the six cards that will be leaving Standard. You can see Blizzard's reasons on the link above, but I've given a few notes in this article. Those cards are shown below.
      As well as the removed cards, there will be no adventures in 2017. Instead we will be given three full expansions that will be accompanied by a single-player mission, which will be used to enhance flavour, and offer challenges. This sounds like it will be along the lines of an adventure, but optional. I feel this is a great change, as it hurts nobody.

      Azure Drake is simply in too many decks. It is a hard card to nerf without making it weak, but it is pretty much as powerful as a 5-drop can be. Removing this to free up other 5-drops makes sense.

      The reasoning for Sylvanas is similar. Blizzard's words make a lot of sense on this one, and also give an insight into the future:
      Blizzard
      Similar to Azure Drake, it’s hard to see a card at the six mana cost out-value Sylvanas. In addition, Sylvanas has the most powerful Deathrattle effect in the game—as a comparison, the Priest card Mind Control costs 10 mana. We have exciting Deathrattle build-arounds coming soon, and in combination with Sylvanas, they would be too powerful for Standard. This seems to imply that N'Zoth, the Corruptor will be making a big comeback soon!

      I suspect a lot of people will be glad to see the back of Ragnaros. The Random element was often a contentious issue.

      The removal of Power Overwhelming is a bit of a surprise, but it seems that it has mainly been nerfed because of its strength in combinaton with cards like Leeroy Jenkins and Faceless Manipulator. I would also assume that Warlock is going to be getting some fun new toys to replace it.

      Ice Lance has been removed to remove Freeze Mage and allow new strategies to develop. It is also interesting that Blizzard mention it will allow them to make cards that copy cards. That could also apply to Power Overwhelming, so I would expect something along those lines to be in the next set.

      Conceal leaving will make sense to everyone. It allows Gadgetzan Auctioneer to survive as an interesting card, and removes the annoyance of not being able to interact with your opponent.
