Tavern Brawl: All-Star Squad

This week's Tavern Brawl is called All-Star Squad. It is the 70th Tavern Brawl.

We've had Top 2, and Top 3, and they were popular. It makes sense that we would effectively get Top 1 to follow those up. In this Brawl, you choose 1 card and you are given 22 copies of it in your deck. You are also given 8 random cards to go with it, just to break things up.

I am enjoying the trend of Brawls that allow players to be creative (if you can call choosing one card being creative!), without having to have a large collection. It probably won't be long before we see a Top 4.

As previously, I won't post spoilers for ideas, as it is more fun for players to discover them on their own.

I personally used Mind Blast to get the first few wins, and then play Lights of the Naaru for fun. 
This brawl isn't bad, but exactly exciting either. It's nice to finally have a place to complete priest quests though.

I would like to know what cards you used, and I don't think others would mind, especially since it's friday already :D

Well there are some main cards you can use to quickly go face;

But in the end that leads to quite boring games :)

 

So if you want more fun, but still be able to win games, try these ones out:

That last one really results in fun games, where your opponent has a ficxed (and known) game plan, and you just have random cards to your disposal.

Sure sometimes you lose due to bad RNG on the random cards part, but most games just turn out to be close calls or big fat wins, and you have a blast doing it :)

I just went the Murloc route and rolled through an otherwise painful brawl daily quest. Murloc mirror matchups were quite entertaining/challenging.

So I said no spoilers from me, but I did post late (sorry about that) this week.

I've been having fun with Bash. It's not always great, but when it wins you get friend adds from mechwarper dudes asking why you're so boring, which is awesome :)

I won 27/30 games with Warlock, Dark Peddler and had lots of fun doing it! Easy gold farming indeed. :)
Key is to clear the board and not worry too much about health, just watching the opponent run out of cards. Then smack them about with your stuff.
Only class that beat me was the Priest with Mind Blast, only managed to kill 2/5 of them by having the coin and being very aggressive with Soulfire and Power Overwhelming, healing up with Voodoo Doctor if possible. 
If the Priest had coin I would not  be able to kill him, though, as he'd be too quick for me.

Still, really recommend this card, it's plenty of fun compared to boring, mindless card-mashing like Mind Blast priests do. At least involves a tiny bit of planning and considering. ^^

Since i don't have Hungry Crab, I found that Twilight Whelp counter hard Murloc Tidecaller that is 80% of the meta. They have no way to counter 2/3 because you kill 1/2 and 2/2 and heal them up to 3 destroying their board. Also is more versatile than crab since can stand a chance against renounce darkness and similar.

I've won all games so far with the Twilight Whelp except against a Maelstrom Portal deck that killed my minions, even won against a Explosive Trap deck that couldn't one shot whelps

Do you not lose on board? How long does it take to get things rolling?

Hey sorry for late reply. It did fall against some stacked 1 card options, but if you got lucky with a healing spell/minion it would beat any murloc, mind blast or mech deck. The reason I enjoyed it, it was different, a bit random and you got to see all cards in golden form which was pretty cool.

Fair point. Well, the next time the brawl comes up, I'll have to give it a try!

      Dave Kosak introduces us to the Monster Hunt, which will be available in a week.
      The Lead Mission Designer was joined by two of his associates to discuss the newest PvE mode, which will come along with The Witchwood. Paul Nguyen talked about the four heroes. Tess Greymane has a Hero Power that lets her Discover any class card that has been played in a game (by both players) and add it to your hand.
      Darius Crowley has an indestructible cannon minion that can be activated via Darius' Hero Power and fire at the minions across it. Positioning will matter, as you can kill two enemy minions at once and the Hero Power will refresh each time you kill a minion with your cannon. There weren't any details on Houndmaster Shaw or Toki, Time-Tinker, but it was hinted that the former hero will have something to do with Rush (just like its card counterpart).
      Giovanni Scarpati discussed bosses and treasures. The Monster Hunt will feature over 45 unique boss encounters. As Ben Brode had revealed in an earlier interview, each hero will have its own final boss, called "nemesis fight". For Crowley it's Lord Godfrey, for Shaw it's Glinda Crowskin and for Toki it's her own future self! When you clear the Monster Hunt with all four heroes (and win four packs), you get to face Hagatha as the last boss. Ultimately, as far as the treasures are concerned, there are a few returning ones from the Dungeon Run, but most are new. There are also hero exclusive treasures, as well as unique treasures "dropping" from rare boss encounters.
      You should definitely watch the video to get a glimpse of all the new stuff coming with the Monster Hunt. And don't forget: it's release date is April 26 at 10:00 am PDT!

      Start stocking up on vials of holy water and cannonballs, because The Witchwood’s free, single-player missions, the Monster Hunt, goes live on April 26 at 10:00 a.m. PDT!
      Join Lead Mission Designer Dave Kosak, along with Mission Designers Paul Nguyen and Giovanni Scarpati, for a Hearthside Chat that will equip you with everything you need to know for a successful Monster Hunt!
      Ready for Action
      If you played the Dungeon Run in Kobolds & Catacombs, the Monster Hunt will be eerily familiar—but much is different! Rather than choosing one of Hearthstone’s nine classes, you’ll take on the role of one of four veteran monster hunters, each with a special ability that you’ll need to make the most of if you hope to survive the hunt.
      Your hunter will venture deep into the Witchwood on Hagatha’s trail, defeating a series of monstrous bosses who dare to cross your path. With each victory, you’ll build a stronger and stronger deck with the items you find. You may encounter some trusty old equipment out in the forest, but much of what you’ll find will be entirely new, including treasures unique to certain foes. Each monster hunter has their own favorite tricks—a special hero power or ability that you’ll need to master if you hope to survive the hunt. Each hunter also carries a grudge against a heinous nemesis in the woods: a unique boss that only they can track down to fight.

      You’ll want to go on a Monster Hunt with every hunter, because each offers a quest that will earn you a Witchwood card pack. And if you’ve got the mettle to complete the Monster Hunt with all four hunters, you’ll finally have a chance to face off with the real witch in the woods: Hagatha! If you can free the wood from Hagatha’s curse, you’ll earn the gratitude of Gilneas and the Monster Hunter card back!

      We hope you enjoyed learning more of what lurks ahead in Monster Hunt! We’re eager to hear your tales of The Witchwood on social media using the #Witchwood hashtag. Learn more about The Witchwood at TheWitchwood.com!
      We’ll see you on the hunt!
