Recommended Posts

The Summer Playoffs for Europe begin on May 5th, where the deadline for lineup submissions has already passed. The Americas and APAC will hold their playoffs on May 12th and 18th, respectively.

 

The Summer Playoffs for The Year of the Raven are just around the corner. Europe will kick things off on May 5th and 6th, The Americas will follow on the 12th and 13th, and Asia will finish things up on the 18th and 19th.

As previously announced, this year's regional playoffs will be conducted in a more efficient manner than last year's. Blizzard promised to increase the amount "on-site staffing and infrastructure support for Playoff venues" to help combat some of the technical issues which scarred last year's playoffs. Additionally, the superfluous semifinal and finals matches which were played after all players had already qualified for their respective regional championships will not be played.

If you'd like the check out the participants for the Summer Playoffs, you can view Europe's right here, America's here, and APAC's here. The deadline for deck submissions is already up in Europe, and the majority of the participants have already tweeted out their lineups. Though there doesn't appear to be an official channel which has all the tournament lineups on it, you can check out the majority of Europe's lineups here on the HS Pro Deck Feed Twitter account.

Savjz is right. All decks are pretty much pre-WW decks. Cube/Control Warlocks, Murloc Paladins, Spiteful Druids (this deck appared towards the end of K&C meta, and was doing well), Quest Druid (same as Spiteful Druid) and Spell Hunter. 

Only new decks are the ones created with Baku & Genn and Hadronox Druid. Quest Rogue made a comeback. Tempo mage changed a bit. Thats all. 

Good job introducing 135 new cards Blizzard.

The problem with power creep is that it is very difficult to reverse it. With cards like Sunkeeper TarimCall to ArmsSpiteful Summoner, and Possessed Lackey sticking around for a whole year, it'll take at least that long (or some nerfs) for Standard to return to adequate power levels.

Still remember when previewers put Possessed Lackey as a worthless card!

There's always that one dark horse that everyone throws down as trash. 

At this point, you might as well look for any card that everyone says is bad, make a video saying it's good and you've got a decent chance it'll end up being a good card. You'll be a god amongst men.

      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.
