The 2016 ONOG Circut finals at PAX West concluded yesterday with an all Luminosity final.

Even though no players were eliminated in the group stages, they were important in seeding the knockout phase. The results from the groups are shown below:

Group A: Eversiction (2-0), Fr0zen (2-1), Dog (1-2), Eversiction (0-2)

Group B: Shoop (2-0), Chakki (2-1), Duhcodda (2-1), Dart (0-2)

Of note in the group stages was that Fr0zen played Dog twice, and won 4-0 both times.

In the knockout phase, Chakki and Fr0zen advanced to the upper bracket final, in which Fr0zen ran out the 4-3 winner. Chakki was not easily dismissed though, and he earned himself another shot by beating Duhcodda 4-0 in the lower bracket final.

Fr0zen brought Malygos Yogg Druid, Mid Hunter, Miracle Rogue, Aggro Shaman, and Dragon Warrior.

Chakki brought Malygos Yogg Druid, Tempo Mage, Miracle Rogue, Aggro Shaman, and Dragon Warrior.

Due to winning the upper bracket, Fr0zen was awarded a winner's advantage of a 1-0 start. Chakki was allowed to ban the deck for that start, and he chose to ban Shaman. Chakki got off to a flying start and won four of the first five games, which left him needing only one win with Dragon Warrior in three attempts. Fr0zen was not to be denied however, and took the title by winning with Druid, Rogue, and then his own Warrior to take down the $10,000 first prize. In the final mirror match, Fr0zen's advantage came from keeping The Curator in his opening hand. He explained in interview afterwards that he felt the matchup comes down to whoever can force the other player to cast Deathwing first. Keeping The Curator gives more fuel towards making that happen.

Fr0zen's five decks are pictured below.

Oh wow. A reverse all-kill is a really good way to finish the tournament. Congrats to Fr0zen!

Was The Spire available to the participants? Surprised to see a Shaman deck without Spirit Claws in it.

      Hi everyone! I would like to update you on my new role as a Hearthstone guide writer.
      Hi everyone! I would like to update you on my new role as a Hearthstone guide writer.
      As some of you will know, I've been writing news here at Icy-Veins for over a year. A lot has changed in that year, both personally, and within Hearthstone. I switched from Arena to Constructed with the introduction of Standard, and have started to cast quite a few large events.
      With those things in mind, I've been let loose on writing guides. I won't be touching Sottle's high level content, but instead will be focussing on keep your old decks fresh. I will be updating decks which have dropped out of the meta, and making them playable to somewhere in the region of Rank Five. They will be weaker than the meta decks, but if you have played the older versions you will probably find that you already own many of the cards, and experience, required to play them.
      Hopefully this will fill a gap for some of you. I'll be a little busy for the first few weeks as I get the hang of things and concentrate on producing quality content, but feel free to let me know if there's an archetype you feel has been left out.
