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!

      The 2016 Hearthstone World Champion revealed this rare Druid card.
      Grizzled Guardian was unveiled on Pavel's YouTube channel. It's a rare Druid Beast, that costs 8 mana and has 3 attack and 5 health. It has Taunt and Deathrattle: "Recruit 2 minions that cost (4) or less". Pavel's video is in Russian, but you can enable accurate English subtitles to see what the World Champion has to say about that card.
      After watching Pavel's video, I am convinced that Grizzled Guardian isn't as bad as it looks at first sight. Sure, its stats are garbage, but you should also factor in the stats of the minions it pulls from your deck when it dies. Still, it's hard to see it fit into the current meta. Perhaps, it can see play when the Year of the Kraken sets rotate out of Standard. It also weakens the 8-mana slot for Evolve and similar effect.
      What's your opinion on Grizzled Veteran? As always, all the cards of the new expansion can be found in our Kobolds & Catacombs hub.
      PS: Turns out it's not Hogger 3.0 :(

      In this article, we are covering two new cards: Temporus, a Priest legendary minion, and a Paladin common minion, whose official name hasn't been confirmed yet.
      "Merciful Djinni" was revealed earlier today by Thai player Anothersayoran1. The name of the card hasn’t been officially confirmed yet.

      Image and nickname by Hearthpwn.
      It is difficult to judge this card without seeing it in action. It’s comparable to Friendly Bartender: while the Djinni heals for more, its 2 attack value is a bit mediocre for a 3-mana minion. Shaman’s Hot Spring Guardian is slightly better, since it has Taunt and a targeted heal effect. Then again, Djinni also acts like a Taunt, in the sense that your opponent probably has to spend early resources to remove its powerful effect. Both cards, though, are beaten by Tar Creeper.
      This make the Djinni a great anti-aggro tool. Additionally, it synergises well with Blackguard and its Elemental tribe means that maybe we’ll get to see an Elemental Paladin. This is definitely a powerful Arena card. But can it secure a spot in constructed mode? It looks difficult, since Paladin already has some great 3-mana minions.

      This intriguing minion was revealed by Eurogamer. Its sister site, Metabomb, sat down with Peter Whalen and Ben Thompson to talk about this card. Both developers think that Temporus can be run in either the classic OTK Priest (Divine Spirit + Inner Fire) or in two new versions of Dragon Priest: a more midrange one and an OTK one with Malygos. 
      It would be interesting to see what it's interaction is going to be with Brann Bronzebeard. Temporus is a "high risk, high reward" card and, even if you don't like it or it turns out to be bad, you'd still have to commend its design.

      The newest Legendary Shaman minion has me shaking in my boots. Is this the card that will put Elemental Shaman over the top?
      Chinese Hearthstone streamer Snowkiss has revealed the Legendary Shaman minion from K&C. This bad boy appears to pack quite the punch - my mind is already racing with potential combos and synergies for Grumble, World Shaker:

      Card image courtesy of Hearthpwn.com
      Elementals have plenty of powerful Battlecry triggers which Grumble could play for a second time. Kalimos, Primal Lord, Servant of Kalimos, Blazecaller, and Jade Spirit immediately come to mind as potent synergies for the shaker of worlds. Grumble could also be used to double down of Jade cards such as Jade Chieftain and Aya Blackpaw, or could even be used to recycle the Battlecry triggers of the old gods. All of this on a 7/7 for 6 mana? Sign me up!
      Is this the card that Elemental Shaman has been waiting for? Let us know what you think about Grumble in the comment section, and check out our Kobolds and Catacombs hub for more information on the upcoming set.

      The second of three Unidentified Magic Items to be revealed from Kobolds and Catacombs, will Unidentified Maul be a smashing success on the ladder?
      Kripparrian revealed the second of three Unidentified Magic Items in Kobolds and Catacombs today on his Twitter accounter, Unidentifed Maul:

      A Paladin Weapon, Unidentified Maul begins each game with an unknown effect and will become "identified" upon drawing the card from your deck. The weapon will always be a 3 mana 2/2, but will be randomly bestowed with one of the four following effects when drawn:

      A couple of the potential modes on this card are very enticing. Two Silver Hand Recruits and a 2/2 weapon for 3 mana is a screaming deal, and the other three modes offer some serious value if you're already ahead on board. Given that three of the four potential modes on Unidentified Maul aren't very good when you're behind, I doubt this card will slot in as an instant replacement for Rallying Blade. Unidentified Maul could end up seeing play in token-based strategies, as granting +1 Attack or Divine Shield to a wide board of minions drawn from Small-Time Recruits is nothing to shake a hammer at.
      Will the random nature of Unidentified Maul be its downfall, or will its synergies with token strategies enable it to see some play on the ladder? Let us know what you think in the comments, and be sure to check out our Kobolds and Catacombs hub for more information on the upcoming set.

      Mage gets its first revealed Kobolds & Catacombs minion. And guess what? Joust is back!
      This card release was unexpected, since it wasn't on the schedule, but it is welcome nonetheless! The Hearthstone Brazil Instagram account revealed this minion:

      Image by Hearthpwn.
      It is interesting to see the Joust mechanic return after such a long time. I'd place this card in average tier. It is worse than Arcanologist, since it has one less health and it's also not guaranteed that it will draw you a spell. Even compared to Novice Engineer and Loot Hoarder, Raven Familiar might be a better body but the other two cards are run in decks that really need the guaranteed card draw. The poor Raven can be a liability in a control oriented Mage deck.
      This card is slightly better for Arena mode. Then again, spells aren't that common in that mode and there's also a reduced offer rate for spells like Fireball and Flamestrike.
      Lastly, the Beast synergy is noteworthy. I don't think we'll be seeing Beast Mage any time soon. So Raven Familiar is a weak 2-mana drop that can be generated and offered to Hunters - although this is mostly going to affect Wild mode.
      Feel free to visit our Kobolds & Catacombs hub for all details and revealed cards of the upcoming expansion.
