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.

      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.
      Blizzard (Source)
      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)
      Spreading Plague now costs 6 mana. (Up from 5)

      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.
      Daxxarri
      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)

      You can earn card backs by signing up for Twitch Prime, while at the same time you can watch two teams of three Hearthstone personalities each battle it out for the next month.
      It turns out that the Light and Void card backs, that were added to the game in Patch 9.0, are indeed tied to a Twitch Prime promotion.

      From tomorrow (September 11) until October 10, by signing up for Twitch Prime you can get both of the card backs you see above. That's not all, though! There will be a special Oktoberbrawl tournament going on at the same time and you can support your favourite team by winning Ranked games with the card back that corresponds to the team of your choice.
      First of all, let us meet the two teams. Team Void consists of Dog, Thijs and J4CKIECHAN; team Light features Kripparrian, Reynad and Alliestrasza. They will all play for four weeks in a variation of a sealed format tournament, culminating into the finals at TwitchCon (October 21).
      TEAM VOID VS TEAM LIGHT
      Dog  
      Kripparrian

      Thijs  
      Reynad
      J4CKIECHAN
       
      Alliestrasza
      How is it going to work? Each player will receive a fresh account, 10 Classic Packs and a Welcome Bundle. On Monday of each week, the players will receive 10 packs from two different expansions, depending on the theme of the week. The weekly themes are Wild (GvG and TGT - September 11-15), Kraken (Old Gods and Gadgetzan - September 18-22), Mammoth (Un'Goro and Frozen Throne - September 25-29) and a Surprise Format (October 2-6).
      Additionally, you can contribute to your favourite team's efforts! On Wednesday, each team member will receive a portion of packs based on the percentage of player's who won games on Ranked by using either the Light or the Void card back. Players will stream their efforts daily and each Friday there will be a grudge match, which will be streamed on the official Hearthstone channel.
      Other rules of Oktoberbrawl are that players can only play their Oktoberbrawl accounts while streaming and they can spend gold earned only through quests on Classic Packs alone. You can read more about the event here.
      As already stated, the finals of Oktoberbrawl will take place on TwitchCon at October 21.
