Tavern Brawl: Yellow-Brick Brawl

This week's Tavern Brawl is called Yellow-Brick Brawl. It is a new Tavern Brawl.

Yellow-Brick Brawl builds on the idea we have seen recently that you don't need to have a full deck of 15-30 unique cards. You select a ten card deck, and are given three of each card. This time around though, you build your deck with conditions in mind. The Brawl is based on The Crone vs Dorothee part of the Karazhan adventure. Each player is given Dorothee, which for those of you who didn't hover over the card, means that minions on the left of her are given Charge, and on the right are given Taunt. 

This mechanic excited me in Karazhan, and I'm glad to see it in Brawl. I feel that mechanics like this will eventually find their way into the game, and will make positioning even more important than it is at the moment. Combined with the deckbuilding aspect that is still a little less collection intensive than a full deck, and I think this could turn out to be one of the great Tavern Brawls.

Haven't lost a match yet using combination burgle mechanic / C'thun rogue.

Pit Snake, Swashburgler, Eviscerate, Undercity Huckster, Disciple of C'thun, C'thun's Chosen, Tomb Pillager, Dark Iron Skulker, Blade of C'thun, C'thun.

Half the deck is very efficient removal, Swash and UH can give you more options and maintain card advantage, then dropping a 15-20+ C'thun with haste pretty much seals the deal.

Minions with divine shield and Dreadsteeds are very powerful from what I've tried. I haven't faced them yet, sadly, and the only consistent counter seems to be Grim Patron and silence effects, which don't work that well against other decks, such as the divine shield one.

Having a good time with Grim Patron + Moroes + Evolve and a load of card draw & removal. (Thanks Toast!)
With a couple charge patrons out, 2-3x evolve becomes ridiculous. (Evolved minions have charge too)

I made a rogue death with baron rivendare, undercity huckster, harvest golem, tomb pillager, haunted creeper, piloted shredder, xaril the poisoned mind, unearthed raptor, and another card I cant remember.

With either infinite taunt or the ability to clear enemy minions away at will during your turn - for the rest of the game - Dreadsteed is a very degenerate card in this environment, especially for a mere four mana. The only real defenses are either silence or taking control of it. If both players have a dreadsteed, then any that have charge can attack and kill them both repeatedly, charging up cards like Darkshire Councilman, Undertaker, and Flesheating Ghoul as high as desired. Actually, during one game, my opponent kept doing this over and over, pumping an Undertaker's attack to the forties and climbing, when suddenly both faces exploded and the game ended in a draw. I wonder if there is some system that will end a round like this if any kind of infinite loop gets abused?

I started out with a battlecry/dragon priest deck that featured Brann and Elise. It won a decisive victory its first time out (against a druid). Then I came to this thread and read the comments about the silly Dreadsteed. I decided to swap a few cards and give it another go.

- Shadow Word: Death

- Elise Starseeker

- Nefarian

+ Twilight Drake

+ Cabal Shadow Priest

+ Entomb

The result was a hard counter to Dreadlock.

I've had a lot of fun with a Paladin Murloc deck too. Goes a long way toward making the new  "Murlocalypse" quest

Used one for the same reason when it was up, loved it :p

      Various bosses from The Witchwood's Monster Hunt are ready to battle it out in this week's brand new Tavern Brawl.
      This is the first special Tavern Brawl that we will see during this year's Hallow's End.
      You just queue up and you get assigned a random boss from the Monster Hunt. Some of these bosses include:
      Azalina Soulthief (Hero Power: 2 mana - Summon three 1/1 Wisps) Blood Witch Greta (Passive Hero Power: Spells cost Health instead of Mana) Brushwood Centurion (Hero Power: 3 mana - All minions attack random enemy minions) Chupacabran (Hero Power: 1 mana - Give a friendly minion +1/+1 and Lifesteal) Plaguemaster Rancel (Hero Power: 2 mana - Deal 2 damage to a minion. If it survives, give it Poisonous) Shudderwock (Passive Hero Power - All Battlecries trigger twice) Winslow Tobtock (Hero Power: 2 mana - Each player shuffles their hand into their decks and draws that many cards) Wharrgarbl (Hero Power: 2 mana - Draw 3 Murlocs from your deck) Experiment 3C (Hero Power: 2 mana - Destroy a friendly minion and draw 3 cards) It's not sure how many bosses there are available, but they certainly have similar decks as during the PvE adventure. It might be worth checking our Monster Hunt guide to refresh your memory on some of their abilities or just experience them in action!

      Hallow's End is going to last from October 17 until October 31.
      As we've already discussed, you can log in to enjoy the spooky festivities and receive a free Golden Witch's Cauldron.
      You will also get a free Arena entry ticket in order to test your mettle in the Dual Class Arena. Pick a Hero, choose the Hero Power of a second Hero and try to make the perfect mix with the combined might of both Heroes' class cards.
      We'll have two Tavern Brawls during Hallow's end: Monster Smash (October 17-22) and The Headless Horseman Rides Again (October 24 - 29)!
      Lastly, for a limited time you can purchase the new Paladin hero, Sir Annoy-o, as a Bundle along with 20 Witchwood packs at the price of $19.99 or 19.99 EUR. This mighty new hero even has his own backstory which you can read here.
      Later today, we should also see the balance changes go live.

      The update will take effect on October 18.
      Well, the balance changes were smaller than expected as only three cards were affected this time.
      As expected, Giggling Inventor was affected as it now costs 7 mana, up from 5. The team actually considered it too powerful for 6 mana, which raises the question why it was 5 mana in the first place. Anyway, it still remains an odd card if this is still relevant.

      Now, a big and unexpected change was Mana Wyrm being raised to 2 mana. The iconic Classic minion has undergone the Tunnel Trogg treatment and after 4+ years of power, it is ready to retire.

      And a Wild change to alleviate the devastating Druid combo: Aviana will now cost 10 mana. This means she can't be played at the same turn as Kun the Forgotten King and Juicy Psychmelon won't be able to draw both Kun the Forgotten King and Aviana with it.

      The update will go live on October 18th with the weekly reset. What do you guys think about the changes?

      Bosses from various Hearthstone adventure battle it out in this week's Tavern Brawl.
      This is the second time we see Boss Battle Royale 2, which itself is a variation of the original Tavern Brawl. This time, we have a new Druid hero and the Warlock hero Sindragosa has been slightly nerfed.
      You pick a class and then you get a specific boss hero, which has its special hero power and a predetermined deck:
      Druid: King Togwaggle (Magic Candle: 3 mana - Find a Treasure) Hunter: Skelesaurus Hex (Ancient Power: 0 mana - Give each player a random cards. It costs 0) Mage: The Curator (Gallery Protection: Passive - Your Hero has Taunt) Paladin: White King (Castle: 2 mana - Discover a chess piece) Priest: Professor Putricide (Mad Science: Passive - All Secrets cost 0) Shaman: Lady Naz'jar (Pearl of the Tides: At the end of your turn, replace all minions with new ones that cost 1 more) Rogue: Grobbulus (Poison Cloud: 2 mana - Deal 1 damage to all minions. If any die, summon a slime) Warlock: Sindragosa (Ice Claw: 2 mana - Do 2 damage. There will be 2 Blocks of Ice on your opponent's side of the board at the beginning of the game) Warrior: Coren Direbrew (Pile On!: 0 mana - Put a minion from each deck into the battlefield) Sindragosa is pretty powerful. Lady Naz'jar, Coren Direbrew and Skelesaurus Hex have random effects that can benefit your opponent - Lady Naz'jar seem to have more success than the other two. Grobbulus can work too, if you play smartly.
      Good luck!
