hearthstone Tavern Brawl: All-Star Squad

20 posts in this topic

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 :)

One that has been pretty funny to play is Hungry Crab because once he hits the field and eats a Murloc Tidecaller your opponent concedes. I did today's quest of winning 5 Tavern Brawls. 5 out of 5 matches ended in concedes. xD

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

I had a Swashburglar vs Babbling Book game that almost went into fatigue. I won because i managed to get an ice block to counter his Pyroblast and i had lethal next turn. Fun brawl when both parties play discover or burgle cards.

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!

      Naiman_hs just revealed Voodoo Hexxer
      If you've missed any of the previously revealed cards, feel free to check them out on our Knights of the Frozen Throne expansion hub.
      Voodoo Hexxer

      Water Elemental's big sister, Voodoo Hexxer is very likely to find a place in any control-oriented shaman deck. Along the new weapon, it seems like the shaman class is being pushed towards Freezing. Stat-wise, Voodoo Hexxer is not all that great for cost, but it fulfills its purpose: it's hard to remove, it'll stall decks that rely on swarming, and even works against weapons. In control matchups, Voodoo Hexxer becomes a form of pseudo removal, especially when coupled with the aforementioned weapon.

      Professor Putricide has been revealed by DDaHyoNi
      If you've missed any of the previously revealed cards, feel free to check them out on our Knights of the Frozen Throne expansion hub.
      Bring it On!

      This card is quite the surprise, and the second in the set seemingly designed to punish spell-heavy/combo decks. Whether this is viable depends entirely on the meta at hand, of course, but there is intricate synergy at play here between Dirty Rat and Shield Slam; pull a minion out, thus avoiding the downside of reducing its cost, then slam it right in for a mighty 10 damage. Could it also be used to bait board swarms for an impending Brawl? I like it.
      Coldwraith

      Considering mages are very lacking in the 3-drop department, we may be looking at a new mage staple here, especially considering how popular Frostbolt and Primordial Glyph currently are. The revealed mage death knight card also seems to promote the use of Water Elemental, furthering your ability to get value out of the Freeze-related effect. Might Freeze mages even consider running this? Probably, since their game plan is all about... well, Freezing and drawing. Pretty cool card, if I may.

      The Mage Legendary from Knights of the Frozen Throne has been revealed, and it is called Sindragosa. It is the seventeenth card to be revealed from the upcoming expansion.
      Sindragosa is an interesting card, and a difficult one to evaluate. It is also worth noting that it is a Dragon.

      Sindragosa provides plenty of value. It is a very slow minion, but we have recently seen with Medivh, the Guardian, that slow value is very playable in the correct deck. Value Mage has been a feature of the Journey to Un'Goro meta under various names, and there is no reason to believe that will change after Knights of the Frozen Throne is released. The main obstacle to it seeing play will be the competition from cards such as Archmage Antonidas and Medivh, and whether there are enough slots available in decks for multiple high Mana cards. 
      This is a card that we can expect to be tested on multiple live streams in the early days of the expansion. At the very least, it is another card that will allow people with smaller collections to play with some of the most powerful cards in the game. What Sindragosa's future is beyond that, is difficult to predict. Feel free to post your predictions in this thread!
      For a list of all of the cards spoiled so far, as well as all of the information about Knights of the Frozen Throne, check out our Knights of the Frozen Throne expansion hub.

      The latest new card to be revealed is a Rogue Common, Vampiric Poison. It is the sixteenth card to be revealed so far.
      Vampiric Poison uses the new keyword Lifesteal. Lifesteal heals the hero for an amount equal to damage done, in the same way as Wickerflame Burnbristle.

      In a vacuum, it seems that this card is not very good. Health totals tend to be a long way behind tempo gain in terms of how important they are to a deck, and playing Vampiric Poison will often throw away a card for no gain in tempo. When put into context of the current meta, Rogue does need a heal fairly urgently. Unfortunately Vampiric Poison is only an effective heal when put on a weapon with either high attack, or with high durability, and current rogue decks play neither.  Anyone looking to try to make this card work would do well to consider Assassin's Blade and work from there.
