hearthstone Tavern Brawl: Party Portals!

5 posts in this topic

Party up with Medivh in this full with portal spells Tavern Brawl!

The 64th Tavern Brawl is new and it is called Party Portals. Both players play as Medivh (his older, purchasable self not the younger one you have to save in One Night in Karazhan). You will get a premade deck filled with a random selection of portal spells:

The Party Portal! is a spell specific to this Brawl. It can summon one of these four minions:

  • Red Riding Hood: 3/2 Taunt. Deathrattle: Enemies can't attack this turn.
  • Romulo: 3/4. At the end of your turn, restore 5 health to your hero.
  • Mime: 3/6 Taunt.
  • Party Elementasl: Three 2/2 Taunts.

Each side of the board will also have a Mediva, which will reduce the mana cost of your portals by 1. While the Medivas don't count as minions, they do take space in the board. You can therefore have a total of 6 minions.

As you can tell, this Tavern Brawl is pretty much luck based. Since you lack card draw, the game will get slower the longer it lasts. Be smart with how you use your spells, so you don't find yourself topdecking!

I think everyone knew this portal brawl was coming. The reduction and party portal are pleasant mix-ups though! I find the luck a lot of fun for this, you win some and lose some in just ridiculous situations. Got a Troggzor the Earthinator off my first unstable portal and dropped him turn 4... game over.

Meh... Way too random to my taste. I don't think I'll return to it. I only won on the seventh or eight try due to my opponent's dogged insistence on boosting and keeping the Fel Reaver he got from a Firelands portal alive and me getting insanely lucky popping out taunt minion after taunt minion and milling him deep into fatigue. Give me that "Your deck is 100% Zerus" or "Yogg Servant Tryouts" brawl instead. 

Seriously, if I ever get another Murloc Tinyfin out of an Unstable Portal, things are going to get bloody...

Indeed a very slow brawl, eventually you just run out of portals...

Had a very fun one though, first 2 unstable portals both gave 'Lorewalker Cho'!
Needless to say we both never ran out of cards, I managed to get his hand full of coins, which gave me the win, and also concluded this weeks brawl for me :)

7 games, 2 of them lost because I got Millhouse Manastorm from Unstable Portal. This brawl is way too random, skill doesn't really matter. This might actually be the first time I am going to reroll the Everybody! Get in here! quest.

      Blood-Queen Lanathel is a new legendary Warlock card that was just revealed via PCGamesN.
      If you've missed any of the previously revealed cards, feel free to check them out here.
      Warlock's Blood-Queen Lana'thel
      The new Legendary Warlock card synergizes with Cruel Dinomancer and cards like Doomguard, Soulfire up to Malchezaar's Imp & Silverware Golem. It doesn't even have Charge and due to ist high mana cost it cannot be deployed early.

      Two more cards from Knights of the Frozen expansion were revealed and Blizzard communicated why there was just a single card reveal before that. The cards are Ice Breaker and Plague Scientist.
      Three card reveals were scheduled for today and the reveal for the second and third card was delayed and the reason is that those reveals were all with partners that couldn't make it happen today due to various reasons.

      We originally had a few more card reveals for today, but the card reveals were all with partners and they unfortunately couldn't happen today due to a variety of issues. But good news! There will be two more card reveals tonight, so please look forward to them. There will also be more card reveals happening every day this week! The first card that was revealed is the Ticking Abomination and here are the next two:
      Shaman's Ice Breaker
      Ice Breaker will synergize well with Frost Shock and we'll have to see Freeze effects of other cards first to determine its usefulness and full potential. Ice Breaker will be good for minion removal combined with Glacial Shard. For now, the card looks better than Shatter.

      Rogue's Plague Scientist
      Provides Rogues with much needed board clear (hard removal). Synergizes well with Tentacle of N'Zoth, Wild Pyromancer. On the other hand for Constructed, it competes with Vilespine Slayer and SI:7 Agent that both seem to be better choices.

      The first card since the initial annoucement for Knights of the Frozen Throne has been revealed by C4mlann earlier this morning.
      Let's take a look at the first KotFT card officially revealed by C4mlann.

       
      Blizzard kicks off the reveal with a card that seems unplayable in all currently popular decks, and subpar in arena. Although some players have suggested silence priest as a potential target, Ticking Abomination is actually detrimental to play without a form of silence in hand, unlike other popular silence targets. The caveat here is that since this is one the first card revealed, we don't actually know what's in store. Might there be a way to transfer Deathrattle effects to enemy minions? Will KotFT control decks play no minion before turn 5? One potential use for this one might lie in "forcing" your opponent to trigger your own Deathrattle effects with a high value card, but we'll have to wait and see. We might even see something that gives Deathrattle effects Lifesteal, the expansion's new mechanic, for some minion-based healing.
      For more information, please check out our guide to the new Hearthstone expansion.

      A new Tavern Brawl has been introduced this week by Ahune the Frost Lord himself.
      In this Brawl, you will play as either Uther or Jaina. They both have premade decks and Uther is reportedly slightly better than Jaina, which is interesting since Mage usually dominates in Tavern Brawls.
      Here is Uther's deck:
      Jaina uses a Reno deck, minus the Reno:
      Both heroes are immune to damage and they cannot be healed nor keep armor. The only way to damage them is by killing the Ragnaros? minions. These are 1/4 minions and there is one of them at each side of the board. They cannot attack and upon death they deal 4 damage to the opponent of the current player. This means that you can kill both minions (the one on your side and the one on your opponent's side) and your opponent will take all the damage. Moreover, once a Ragnaros? dies, a new one will appear thus making it possible to kill multiple of them in one turn.

      Some tips you should know:
      If the game reaches the fatigue stage, in the next round the enemy that has the least amount of health will automatically die and their opponent will be crowned as the winner. At the moment, Ice Block and Eye for an Eye seem to be bugged and they are not working as intended. This will be fixed soon. Bomb Squad and Ancient Curse deal no actual damage to you, so don't be afraid! This is the 110th Brawl and it's part of the Frost Festival. If you want to find out more about the Frost Festival, check our main article on it.

      As Ragnaros' Midsummer Fire Festival has ended, it is time for Ahune the Frost Lord to take over with the Frost Festival! 
      As we explained in our previous post, this is a holiday that celebrates Arena mode. Once you log in the game, you will see that Ahune is giving you a free Arena ticket for this week. This will happen for the entire duration of the festival, so in total you will get three free Arena keys.
      You will also get a free win each time you start an Arena run, whether it's from a free or a purchsed entrance key.
      You will also get a quest to play three Arena games. This weekly quest awards you with a Knights of the Frozen Throne card pack. Once again, you will receive this quest next week and the week after that accounting for a total of three Knights of the Frozen Throne packs (assuming you complete the quests).

      Feel free to check out our Arena guides and card rankings before you step into the Arena!
      As far as the themed Tavern Brawl called Ahune's Superior Brawl is concerned, you can read more about it here.
      The Frost Festival has created speculation for the next expansion. Since it will run for three weeks, it is going to end on August 9. The day after that, August 10, is thought by many to be the date that Knight of the Frozen Throne will be released.
