Tavern Brawl: Captain Blackheart's Treasure

Recommended Posts

7F0ZEO3.png

This week's Tavern Brawl is the third outing for Captain Blackheart's Treasure.

As well as being used for this week's 63rd Tavern Brawl, Captain Blackheart's Treasure was previously used in weeks 23 and 32. In this Brawl, you are given a deck full of Bloodsail Raiders, and each turn are offered the option to discover a card to put in your hand.

This is one of the Brawls that I am fond of. Although there is a fair amount of luck in the cards that you are offered, it does help to teach players to think ahead. It also has enough skill that the better player has a significant advantage. I think that it is everything a Brawl should be in terms of balance.

This Brawl was originally released to showcase the Discover mechanic for The League of Explorers but was withdrawn due to technical issues.

It's like arena - tempo is extremely important. You should usually pick the card you can play straight away and/or pick cards that give you tempo, such as SI:7 Agent.
If you can get multiple wins in a row with this brawl, you are ready for arena.

True.

Or just discover Onyxia followed by +1+1 to all your creatures :)

This means you have to stay alive for 9 turns (or 8 if you have a coin). Of course, there are no super aggressive decks in the brawl, but I would'n rely on Onyxia or another big creature. You have to outtempo your opponent on previous turns.

I had kinda the same and opposite feelings at the same time, I usually wanted to discover big stuff on the first turns since the pirates were already there, so that I could play on curve later and have the big shots ready for the later turns.

Call of the Wild was the pick every time it appeared though, regardless of the turn.

I think I've seen Essentially the Same Brawl ,about 3 times Now,

I enjoy it. I think they run a pretty good Mix of Brawls and, some are more like Tutorials, and that's okay. 

Should Erect an Effigy to the Fallen cards maybe...

      Right before the news for the upcoming PvE Adventure hits, Blizzard announced some much needed balance changes.
      Two card buffs from the May update will be reverted, while three more cards will be nerfed in an update coming next week.
      In May, we had the first card buffs in Hearthstone's history. In an occasion like that, it was certain that some of these buffs would be hit or miss. While there were definitely some misses, some of these biffs hit harder than expected and thus they will now will be reverted. These cards are Extra Arms, which will go back to costing 3 mana, and Luna's Pocket Galaxy going back to 7 mana.


      Two more cards from Standard are also getting nerfed in the August 26 update. Mage will suffer another big loss, as Conjurer's Calling will now cost 4 mana (up from 3).

      Another much needed nerf is that of Dr. Boom, Mad Genius. The 7-mana 7/7 (infinite 7s) meme started from the original card will be no more, as the cost of this heavily used Hero card will be upped to 9.

      Finally, a lot of Wild players can breathe out in relief as Barnes' cost will be increased to 5 mana, up from 4. I am not sure if this will be enough to alleviate the frustrations of the Wild community with the Legendary minion, but at least it's a step to the right direction.

      You can read about Blizzard's thinking behind these nerfs in the official blog post.

      In this new Brawl, all minions work like Nightmare Amalgam.
      This means that all minions count as Elementals, Mechs, Demons, Murlocs, Dragons, Beasts, Pirates and Totems!
      Since this a Constructed Tavern Brawl, you want to build your deck carefully. It's  clever to focus on synergies of a specific Tribe (Murloc, Pirate and Mech/Magnetic decks being the most successful ones so far) but you can also create some busted combos if you mix and match.
      Key cards for each type of Tribe include:
      Elementals: Lesser Ruby Spellstone, Frost Lich Jaina Mechs: Galvanizer, Mechwarper, Magnetic cards Demons: Ectomancy, Sacrificial Pact, Sense Demons Murlocs: Murloc Warleader, Underbelly Angler, Old Murk-Eye - basically anything that has Murloc written on it Dragons: Duskbreaker, Wyrmrest Agent, Drakonid Operative, Twilight Guardian Beasts: Crackling Razormaw, Master's Call, Scavenging Hyena, Revenge of the Wild Pirates: Ship's Cannon, Patches the Pirate Totems: Thing from Below, Totemic Surge, Splitting Axe Some Tribe combinations favour specific classes (like Elemental for Mages and Beasts for Hunters and Druids) or are strictly restricted to them (Totems and Demons), while classes like Shaman enjoy the freedom of being decent for various deck styles.
      Don't forget to grab your Hungry Crab, Golakka Crawler and a board clear - you are going to need them! Menagerie cards will also buff nicely your entire board.
