The 68th Tavern Brawl is Boom Bot vs Annoy-o-Tron. It first appeared as a Brawl almost exactly a year ago on September 30 2015.

This Brawl features two special heroes, named after the cards Boom Bot and Annoy-o-Tron. Boom Bot's Hero Power is Deal 1 damage to 2 random enemies, while Annoy-o-Tron's is Give your lowest attack minion Divine Shield and Taunt. The decks are random, but some cards are staples in each deck. In general, the Mech Minions are the random cards.

The easy part to overlook in the hero powers is the Taunt available for Annoy-o-Tron. Taunting up something small like a Flying Machine can give your other Minions the freedom to take over the game. Boom Bot does seem to have more damage from hand however, using lots of random effects from cards such as Madder Bomber and Goblin Blastmage. This means that Annoy-o-Tron's Divine Shields rarely stay around for long, so be sure to use them on your terms, not your opponent's.

Last year I played this one roughly 5 or 6 times and every single time I got stuck with Annoy-o-Tron. I've only played this one once this go around and I finally got Boom Bot.  After a year I now feel complete. xD

Yeah, I played Boom Bot 8 times before I got Annoy-o-Tron once. I was starting to think that it just assigned you one and you were always that one.

I was seeming that way when I played it last year.

I. Hate. This. Brawl.

I've just never had such a run of bad RNG luck in my entire time playing this game.  I normally win at Tavern Brawl in the first 1-3 games.  I've played 20 game of this brawl and I just get the worst of it every time.  This is the opposite of fun, just in case Blizzard cares.

Fun brawl, I enjoy the strategy with Annoy- o - Tron as well as the amusing RNG of Boom Bot. Playing Dr. Boom reminds me of old times.

Spotted a weird bug - if, as Annoy-O-Tron, your lowest Attack minion has 0 Attack, the Hero Power does nothing. Thanks Shrinkmeister....

I love this brawl. It's both fun and skill-reliant! Though the player who gets tempo early often wins the game. The only exception is Twisting Nether after an overextension on board.

Whenever I think I have a clear winner for worst Brawl ever, Blizzard overdo himself. Annoy-o-tron's hero power is so grossly overpowered it isn't even funny the moment your opponent knows how to play around Twisting Nether.

For all of you who wants a quick win: concede until you finally get to play as Annoy-o-tron and resist the urge to commit any more minions to the board than strictly necessary to wall your opponent out. If you are lucky, you'll even watch him blow himself up with his Mad Bombers and Madder Bombers.

First time Boom-Bot, easy win. I just don't get why people keep complaining about random brawls - if you ignore that and play like it's another boring constructed game then it's obvious you're going to lose.

I think the random ones are more disliked due to the fact that you can, as expected, just get completely outdone by sheer luck. Top Two etc. allow you to invent new and interesting ways to win/counter other winning decks. These ones just kind of are "flip a coin" games.

What are you saying? RNG cards promote a fun gameplay experience. Just go ask blizzard.

Nothing better than rolling 25 dice to see if Yogg wins or loses the game. That's fun, right? :D

      In episode two of "What's the Move?" Aleco discusses an open-ended situation which doesn't have a clear answer.
      In episode two of "What's the Move?" Aleco discusses an open-ended situation which doesn't have a clear answer.
      We kicked off this new series by analyzing a tricky situation which had only one optimal line of play. In episode two we'll take a look at a very different kind of situation, one where there might not be a perfect move at all.
      Please let us know in the comments what you would have done in this situation! One of the primary goals of this series is to foster improvement at Hearthstone by generating discussions. We would also love to hear your feedback on the video itself, as the series is still very new and has plenty room to improve on its format.

      In the latest Hearthstone update, Blizzard made adjustments to several cards. The patch is now live now on desktop and it should become available on mobile devices in the coming hours.
      Philosophy and reasons behind these changes can be found here.

      Card Changes
      Innervate now reads: Gain 1 Mana Crystal this turn only. (Down from 2)
      Fiery War Axe now costs 3 mana.  (Up from 2)
      Hex now costs 4 mana. (Up from 3)
      Murloc Warleader now reads: Your other Murlocs have +2 Attack. (Down from +2 Attack, +1 Health)

      A new Brawl has landed in the Tavern.
      Just like with the previous expansions, it's time to try out the deck recipes of Knights of the Frozen Throne in this week's Tavern Brawl. The archetypes for each deck recipe are the following:
      Druid: I guess the best name for this deck is Midrange Druid. It has Ultimate Infestation and Spreading Plague, so... PROFIT?! Deathrattle Hunter Elemental Mage Divine Shield Paladin Control Priest (you've probably seen variations of it in ladder) Jade Deathrattle Rogue Freeze Shaman Zoolock Control Warrior with Enrage minions This is a good opportunity to try out cards that you don't own. Good luck and have fun!

      The balance patch is arriving in the beginning of the next week.
      The wait is over! The anticipated card balance changes will arrive on September 18th and hopefully freshen up the meta a little bit. As the case always is with balance patches, for the next two weeks if you disenchant Spreading Plague and/or Murloc Warleader, you will get their full value in Arcane Dust.
      Daxxarri
      In the recent Upcoming Balance Changes – Update 9.1 blog, we discussed the details and philosophy behind balance updates that are coming to several Hearthstone cards:
       
      Innervate - Now reads: Gain 1 Mana Crystal this turn only. (Down from 2) Fiery War Axe - Now costs 3 mana. (Up from 2) Hex - Now costs 4 mana. (Up from 3) Murloc Warleader - Now reads: Your other Murlocs have +2 Attack. (Down from +2 Attack, +1 Health) Spreading Plague - Now costs 6 mana. (Up from 5)
      This patch is currently targeted for September 18th PDT. Please note that updates for mobile devices may take a few additional hours to propagate.

      Once these card changes are live, players will be able to disenchant cards that are not Basic (Murloc Warleader and Spreading Plague) for their full Arcane Dust value for two weeks. Basic cards cannot be disenchanted and will not be available for an Arcane Dust refund. (source)
