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.

      The Americas Spring Playoffs and Championship were played over the weekend of May 28-29.
      The new Americas Champion is Muzzy.  Muzzy has long been touted as one of the best ladder players in the world, but has previously not converted this into any big wins. He will go to the World Spring Championship in Shanghai in July, alongside DiegoDias, Ant, and Kuonet who rounded out the top four.
      The tournament was a grueling one, with many players bringing Control Decks, and some of the rounds of Swiss lasting over 3 hours. The archetypes brought by the top four are listed below:
        Muzzy: Control Paladin, Giant Miracle Rogue, Jade Shaman, Quest Warrior
        DiegoDias: Jade Druid, Murloc Paladin, Quest Rogue, Quest Warrior
        Ant: Aggro Druid, Secret Mage, Murloc Paladin, Pirate Warrior
        Kuonet: Discover Mage, Control Paladin, Evolve Shaman, Quest Warrior
      As you can see, the meta seems to be healthy, with many viable options.
      Next week is the APAC Spring Playoffs, at which point all sixteen qualifiers for the World Spring Championship will have been decided.

      The Americas Region HCT Spring Playoffs will take place over the weekend of 27-28 May 2017.
      The HCT Spring playoffs for the Europe region was completed last weekend, with Hoej, Kolento, Neirea, and Rdu qualifying for the Global Championship next month.
      This weekend is the turn of the Americas region, and the reaction last week is that many players have submitted very greedy control decks in their lists. The players who have submitted the greediest lists will be well placed in the control mirror matches, but those same players will need to dodge the handful of Aggro lineups that are out there.
      To find out if your favourite player has qualified, you can check the standings here. The top 64 and ties made it to the main event, along with 8 Tavern Heroes. The event can be seen on the official Twitch channel from 8am PDT on Day One and 9am PDT on Day Two.

      A new mini-series of funny shorts has started, and we already have 2 episodes out! Mulligans sees an ordinary guy complete the quests that everyday life throws his way with the help of some unusual friends: Uther, Jaina, and Gul’dan. See them battle printer problems and who gets to ride shotgun in the first two episodes:

      The Europe Spring Playoffs and Championship took place over the weekend of May 20-21, which decided not only the new Europe Champion, but also the four players who would represent Europe at the Global Spring Championship in Shanghai next month.
      After seven rounds of Swiss, the top eight players cut to a knockout phase. The results of which were as follows:
        Hoej beat   FibEli3
        Neirea beat   INER
        Rdu beat   Casie
        Kolento beat   StanCifka
      This means that Hoej, Neirea, Rdu, and Kolento will represent Europe in the Global Championship. The top eight being so strong is a sign that the metagame is in a healthy place. All of the players were already known to be among the best in Europe, and despite their lineups differing substantially, they were still able to make it through.
      Hoej went on to take the title, beating Kolento 3-0 in the final. Hoej has been touted as one of the best players in Europe for some time, but traditionally has brought Control decks to major events. This time around, he brought a very aggressive lineup, and was rewarded for his willingness to adapt his style to the meta.
      The deck archetypes that each player brought to the event are listed below:
      Hoej: Aggro Druid, Secret Mage, Murloc Paladin, Pirate Warrior
      Kolento: Jade Druid, Midrange Paladin, Quest Rogue, Quest Warrior
      Neirea: Jade Druid, Discover Mage, Quest Rogue, Quest Warrior
      Rdu: Aggro Druid, Face Hunter, Aggro Shaman, Pirate Warrior
      The next four players to qualify for the Global Championship will be decided next week, with the Americas Spring Championships.

      The Hearthstone Championship Tour (HCT) European Spring Playoffs will take place this weekend, 20-21 May 2017.
      This will be the first playoff event since Journey to Un'Goro was released, and so if anyone has saved any surprise deck tech, this is the event where it will be revealed.
      The top 64 point earners, and ties, from the EU server will be joined by 8 Tavern Hero tournament qualifiers for the event, which will be played in esports bars across Europe. If you want to attend one of the events to cheer on your local favourite, the list of locations can be found here. There will be side events for anyone wishing to attend, with Blizzard prizes available for winners, and the Power Core cardback for all attendees.
      The point standings, showing the top 64, can be found here. As usual the event is stacked with many of the big names from the region. The top four will advance to the HCT Spring Global finals next month.
