Tavern Brawl: Venture into the Wild

11 posts in this topic

This is the first Tavern Brawl that is linked to the Wildfest event.

Wildfest is upon us! From this week until March 11, you can draft Wild cards in Arena while we will also get two special Tavern Brawls. Venture into the Wild is available this week, while the Heroic Wild Tavern Brawl will assumedly be up next week (you can read more about Wildfest here).

Venture into the Wild is just a Brawl with premade decks for each class that contain Wild cards. Here are the archetypes:

  • Aggro/Egg Druid
  • Midrange Hunter
  • Secret Mage
  • Dude Paladin
  • Big Priest
  • Miracle/Oil Rogue
  • Midrange Shaman
  • Reno Kazakus Demonlock
  • Pirate Warrior

Most of these decks feel awfully Standard for a Wild event. The aggro decks are pretty good, but you should bear in mind that they all contain copies of post- nerf Patches the Pirate. Big Priest seems to be quite powerful, judging from people's reactions on the interwebs.

Good luck!

Deck choices;

Pirate warrior? Really? Out of all those archetypes in the glorious past of warrior class, apparently the most cancerous one had to be picked. 

Aggro shaman? Secret mage ? If I wanted to see the latter, I could just play ranked you know. One in every three match is against them and their broken weapon

Aggro druid? Because it didn't see play for a long time, think of all that time passed since the nerfs, years, hell, even centuries we're talking about. 

Big priest? Silver Hand Paladin?

What about something which we can't encounter in standard? Like Aviana Druid, Echo Mage, Oldschool Control Warrior, Mech Shaman... You know, something different.

The whole f***ing tavern brawl is like 'lets pick the most cancerous and easy to play archetype for each, so that the noobs... ehm, I mean our valuable player base, who doesn't have enough experience and knowledge about game can net a win or two'

Very well done Blizzard!

Oh, and there is Miracle Rogue and Reno Warlock as harder options, and I've never seen anyone play it.

I never paid much attention to wild and never liked the brawls (very few have been fun for me) but this is just like playing a standard deck (as Zadina said) with a bit extra stuff and nothing exciting, what a waste of time :D

I mean, while I agree with you, I played the Reno lock and the miracle rogue XD.

To be fair, whilst it does feel a bit Standard and dull, most of these decks are pretty common on the wild ladder.

Aggro Druid, Secret Mage, Dude Paladin, Big Priest, Pirate Warrior, Miracle/oil Rogue are all probably the most common for their classes or close. Shaman tends to be pretty aggro rather than midrange. Hunter is almost always some naga sea witch farce. Warlock normally cubelock and/or naga sea witch nonsense.

So you mean the players who already play standard see things they already know and players not so familiar with wild get to see little difference to standard besides the sea witch stuff? :D

As a wild player, I didn't enjoy much this brawl. I have won against someone who wasn't able to pilot his deck at all, or that drew very bad. Then I returned to ladder.

But I think it would be nice to someone who never plays wild, it's a good showcase. Yes, I would love a brawl about old strong deck, but it wasn't the goal of this one.

Well, some people just take their standard decks into wild so you’ll always see some of the same decks.

At the moment Naga Sea Witch is probably the biggest difference, seems to mainly be played in hunter and warlock. Druid has interesting aviana-kun-malygos/c’thun combos. Mage can bring Reno and other tools to make big spell control stronger. Paladin has very strong dude additions to dude aggro, and anyfin Paladin is always around. Dragon Priest has more synergies to choose from, big Priest has more resurrect tools and more big minions and anti-aggro spells to choose from. Shaman has insane early game and burn tools, and has some decent combo decks you see occasionally. Surprised not to see much Rogue - mill Rogue is common but disappears once you climb near to Legend, guess it gets wrecked by aggro. Not seeing much Miracle either despite the option of conceal shenanigans, maybe too many board clears and silence around. Warlock is very similar to standard aside from sea witch variants, with stuff like sylvannas and void caller added to cubelock, no renolock around right now. Not seeing any warrior apart from pirates for some reason, but that’s much stronger than in standard.

      A new series of posts in the official forums will shed some light into the inner workings of the Hearthstone team. Welcome to Tavern Talk!
      In this first installment, three questions are answered. The first has to do with additional rewards for players who have earned a Golden Hero with every class. Unfortunately, no extra rewards are planned since the team wants new features or rewards to be obtainable by 10% or more of the playerbase.
      Then, we have an update on the new player experience. Team 5 wants to add additional ranks above rank 25 for new players, so they can mostly face each other in their first steps in the ranked ladder. You will be able to only progress forward in these ranks, similarly to what already happens from rank 25 to 20.
      Lastly, we have a double question about using alternate card art and reprinting cards. The team doesn't like the idea of alternate card art, since it makes sense that players associate and remember a specific card from its art. Reprinting cards is something that has been discussed already and it's something they might do in the not-so-near future after careful consideration.

      Ever wondered what goes on behind the closed doors of the tavern? Ava and the crew’s antics aside, the Hearthstone development team works hard on a myriad of tasks to bring you the game you know and love so well. More than that, we also make the time to read about the different issues and questions the community brings to light each day. Welcome to Hearthstone Tavern Talk, where we’ll share with you answers to some of the questions we see in our community!
      Are there any additional rewards for players who have achieved a Golden Hero in every class?
      Usually when we add new features or rewards we like to make something that can be obtained by 10% or more of our players. Only very few of our players have the 9 Golden Heroes, and we feel that’s already pretty awesome by itself.
      Do you have any changes planned for the new player experience?
      We have some small ladder changes that we would like to do at some point, specifically targeted at new players when they first enter the game. The change will add some additional ranks above rank 25 that new players can play through before having to play more invested players. There will only be forward advancement through those ranks, so even if they lose, no one will be able to drop back down.
      What are your thoughts on alternate card art or reprints of cards from earlier sets?
      Alternate card art is something we have avoided because players almost always use art to recognize a card and instantly know what it does. Good gameplay is very important to us so we have avoided adding multiple pieces of art for a single card.
      Reprints are something that we have discussed in the past, but we would want to do so only after careful consideration. We don’t have any specific plans for this in the near future.
      See you at the next edition of Hearthstone Tavern Talk!

      This is the second time this Brawl appears.
      The trend of Tavern Brawls themed after Death Knight Hero Powers continue: last week we had Rise of the Zombeasts, now we have Shadow Reflection.
      In this constructed Brawl, you can craft a deck of any size with cards from your collection. The rest of the deck will consist of Shadow Reflections. Decks consisted of 30 cards (and thus with no Shadow Reflections) can still work, given that Odd Paladin has reportedly been successful (and a total fun breaker).
      Judging from the previous time this Brawl was around, Aggro and OTK decks seems to be more favoured. Some decks that had success were Aggro Mage or Ice Lance Mage, Combo Priest with Radiant Elemental, Hunter with Mechwarper and Metaltooth Leaper and Quest Rogue. This time around a new Warrior deck, which mostly relies on Bring It On!, has surfaced to counter all the Priest Mind Blast madness.
      Good luck and have fun!
