This Week's Tavern Brawl: Blessing Of The Raven

Recommended Posts


To celebrate the new Hearthstone year, this week's brawl will bless your minions with a random keyword ability.


To usher in the Year of The Raven, this week's Tavern Brawl is themed around the new Hearthstone year. Each minion played (whether from hand or summoned from an effect such as Free From Amber) gets a Blessing of the Raven, which is one of the following keywords:




The Tavern Brawl is highly swingy and luck-dependent, as minions are capable of getting extremely useful or entirely useless abilities. Your Stonetusk Boar might end up with Poisonous, or your 0/5 Taunt could end up with Stealth and be nothing more than board filler:

If you haven't guessed from my tone, it took me more than a few tries to finally luck my way into a win in this week's Brawl. It's also a bit puzzling that the brawl which is supposed to hype up the new expansion rewards a Basic pack and not a Witchwood pack. Regardless, I'm a huge fan of free Hearthstone cards and gladly accepted my beats for some extra dust!

is some random BS for sure.

the only deck i've seen with any synergy was a shaman that just beat me that seemed to have an elemental theme.

otherwise, complete random luck for a win.

we're a bunch of lemmings

lol, that's funny


and, will someone please tell me why Feral Gibberer

is not a beast??? It's got fur, it's got teeth...it's bloody FERAL.

I think it's only not a beast because Blizz hates hunters in Hearthstone.

I think because is a monster more than a beast (animal). It doesn't resemble a real animal like a horse, a pig, a bear, etc. 

It's more like a furred monster unless you can tell me something like this is an animal I don't know about

      Right before the news for the upcoming PvE Adventure hits, Blizzard announced some much needed balance changes.
      Two card buffs from the May update will be reverted, while three more cards will be nerfed in an update coming next week.
      In May, we had the first card buffs in Hearthstone's history. In an occasion like that, it was certain that some of these buffs would be hit or miss. While there were definitely some misses, some of these biffs hit harder than expected and thus they will now will be reverted. These cards are Extra Arms, which will go back to costing 3 mana, and Luna's Pocket Galaxy going back to 7 mana.

      Two more cards from Standard are also getting nerfed in the August 26 update. Mage will suffer another big loss, as Conjurer's Calling will now cost 4 mana (up from 3).

      Another much needed nerf is that of Dr. Boom, Mad Genius. The 7-mana 7/7 (infinite 7s) meme started from the original card will be no more, as the cost of this heavily used Hero card will be upped to 9.

      Finally, a lot of Wild players can breathe out in relief as Barnes' cost will be increased to 5 mana, up from 4. I am not sure if this will be enough to alleviate the frustrations of the Wild community with the Legendary minion, but at least it's a step to the right direction.

      You can read about Blizzard's thinking behind these nerfs in the official blog post.

      In this new Brawl, all minions work like Nightmare Amalgam.
      This means that all minions count as Elementals, Mechs, Demons, Murlocs, Dragons, Beasts, Pirates and Totems!
      Since this a Constructed Tavern Brawl, you want to build your deck carefully. It's  clever to focus on synergies of a specific Tribe (Murloc, Pirate and Mech/Magnetic decks being the most successful ones so far) but you can also create some busted combos if you mix and match.
      Key cards for each type of Tribe include:
      Elementals: Lesser Ruby Spellstone, Frost Lich Jaina Mechs: Galvanizer, Mechwarper, Magnetic cards Demons: Ectomancy, Sacrificial Pact, Sense Demons Murlocs: Murloc Warleader, Underbelly Angler, Old Murk-Eye - basically anything that has Murloc written on it Dragons: Duskbreaker, Wyrmrest Agent, Drakonid Operative, Twilight Guardian Beasts: Crackling Razormaw, Master's Call, Scavenging Hyena, Revenge of the Wild Pirates: Ship's Cannon, Patches the Pirate Totems: Thing from Below, Totemic Surge, Splitting Axe Some Tribe combinations favour specific classes (like Elemental for Mages and Beasts for Hunters and Druids) or are strictly restricted to them (Totems and Demons), while classes like Shaman enjoy the freedom of being decent for various deck styles.
      Don't forget to grab your Hungry Crab, Golakka Crawler and a board clear - you are going to need them! Menagerie cards will also buff nicely your entire board.
