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

      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.

      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)
