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!

I realy like those brawls, they give you a great option to try some decks.

It would be perfect if you could see a decklist, it would give you a better sense of which synergies the decks have though.

I tried the Priest a few times and it was fun to play. But from my 3 games I played I got the feeling the Highlander Priest with minions like Ysera + The Lich King + Raza the Chained and others is way stronger.

 

It is nice that I got a feeling how control priest plays. I always wanted to play it but never had a deck for it.  And I'll definitly take a look at Elemental Mage too. I had some ladder games againt it and it is a realy good deck.

 

Thx for the opportunity Blizzard!

This rogue deck is making my rogue dominance quest pretty easy so far. Warrior, priest and warlock all very easily beaten. Pretty fun deck to play too!

It is SUCH an expensive deck. I love having it, but my word is it brutal to try and build without heaps of packs or dust.

It's nothing new. Decks became very expensive. Just look at the Paladin Handbuff deck here. more legend legend legend ... hard to see the common, rare or epic cards there.

As soon as the meta shows any signs of slowing down, it absolutely destroys the chances of cheap decks. It's still possible for sure, but it's 10x harder.

Well, this time next year we will have 5 or 6 active expansions ln standard, I have no idea how newer players can keep up unless they spend tons of money.

This is why I play -almost- only wild. In wild the money I spent for my Mal'Ganis, Dr Boom, Kel'Thuzad, Reno Jackson, Thaurissan, still values.

You know, I have spent money in this game, a lot. What scares me is how much money I should still pay to keep up! At least in wild I don't have to keep up from zero like after a rotation...

It seems like that's what more and more people will just have to end up doing.

I don't think hearthstone is expensive to be competitive compared to some other games tbh. I think you just have to be disciplined with your dust. If you play a fair bit it's not unreasonable to get 75-100 gold a day from missions&wins. I had 8k gold saved up from between ungoro and kft (I did make some profit from arena during the +1 win spell but probably less than 1k, the rest just from normal play). With the pre-purchase packs too that would've been enough to play pretty much any meta deck (in the end I blew a load of dust on wild stuff for the Lich King so I'm still missing some kft stuff but hey). But even without the prepurchase packs you'll have enough to craft some meta decks, and you don't need to have every deck...

How much would you say you played to reach that point, just out of interest?

I joined a little over a year ago, probably play a couple of hours a day on average. Sometimes more, but sometimes just do the daily mission.

Not saying it's easy, but the game does offer two ways to stay competitive - if you don't play much you can just buy the packs, but if you play a lot you don't need to spend so much.

I am not really interested in wild because it's well too wild :D and there are a lot of older cards I don't like, I was so so happy when Reno Jackson left standard.

The price per pack from the pre-order is a bit cheaper than buying packs normal but it's barely enough to get the crucial cards from a new expansion. If they keep releasing expansions like this they should make it a bit easier to get your hands on gold or they should consider a pay related matchmaking (I know sad to have such a thought), otherwise newer players and those who can't spent much money will have less and less fun.

As I said before, they provide a good game and they should earn money for their work but how it goes atm is not pleasing me.

Yeah, it's a choice you have to make, I guess. You have to dedicate time or money, essentially.

      The single-player adventure, introduced along with the Rastakhan's Rumble expansion, is now available in all regions.
      The Rumble Run is very similar to the Dungeon Run and the Monster Hunt, in the sense that you will face eight opponents and you will build your deck as you progress using card bundles, passives and powerful minions exclusive to this game mode.
      Your hero will always be Rikkar, a young Troll champion eager to prove himself. In the beginning of your run, you will be offered three different Shrines (more on them in the next paragraph) from three different classes. This initial decision basically equals to you picking a Class for this run. The other eight classes will be your opponents.

      Shrines exist as minions on the board and they have powerful effects. Each class has three different Shrines and each starting Shrine comes with a complementary deck of 10 minions that synergise with it. When a Shrine dies, it goes dormant for 3 turns and its effect isn't active until it comes back to life.
      Subsequently, you will build your deck using card bundles, neutral passive abilities and class-specific minions exclusive to the Rumble Run.
      If you finish the Rumble Run once with any class, you will earn this card back:

      Good luck on this new adventure and we'll soon have a detailed guide on it!

      With Rastakhan's Rumble being released last week, we were bound to get a Tavern Brawl like this. So pick a hero and you get the premade Rastakhan's Rumble deck recipe for the class you chose.
      Here are the decks:
