Tavern Brawl: The Headless Horseman Rides!

Recommended Posts

The second Hallow's End Tavern Brawl is the same as last year's event, only this time around the difficulty curve seems to have increased.

This is a premade PvE Brawl. Stormwind Investigator is your Hero and you will have 30 Health. You will start with The Coin and five Stormwind Champions. However, in your first turn you will immediately have to choose to dress up between 3 options.

If you pick the Witch Costume, you will have a spell oriented deck. Your passive Hero Power is Witchcraft, which allows your spells to cost double and cast a second copy if you have enough mana. Your deck looks like this:

1Enchanted Raven
2 Feral Spirit
1 White Eyes
1 Volcanic Potion
1 Jinyu Waterspeaker
1 Tidal Surge
1 Validated Doomsayer
2 Bog Creeper
1 Spirit Echo
1 Sen'jin Shieldmasta
2 Wild Growth
1 Shadow Visions
1 Bolf Ramshield
1 Midnight Drake
1 Hungry Dragon
1 Power of the Wild
2 Huge Toad
1 Hot Spring Guardian
1 Ironbark Protector
1 Molten Reflection
1 Flamecannon
1 Sap
1 Aberrant Berserker
1 Malorne
2 Arcane Missiles

The Pirate Costume includes a handy passive Hero Power called Conscript, which makes all your minions count as Pirates. You can find the deck in the spoiler tag:

2 Acolyte of Pain
2 Bloodsail Cultist
1 Hobart Grapplehammer
2 Loot Hoarder
1 Patches the Pirate
1 Thistle Tea
2 Fire Fly
2 Ship's Cannon
1 Upgrade!
2 Shady Dealer
1 Tinker's Sharpsword Oil
1 Fan of Knives
1 Backstab
1 Eviscerate
1 One-eyed Cheat
1 Shadow Strike
2 Fiery War Axe
1 Battle Rage
1 Skycap'n Kragg
2 Southsea Captain
1 Sprint
1 Captain Cookie - 5 mana 0/3 Murloc: When you summon a Pirate while this is in your hand, this minions gets +1/+1

The Cat Costume offers a Hunter/Warrior hybrid deck. Its passive Hero Power is Sense Weakness: Whenever a non-Boss enemy survives damage, summon a 1/1 Cat. Here's what the deck contains:

1 King Krush

1 Moroes

1 King of Beasts

1 Savannah Highmane

1 Druid of the Claw

1 Stranglethorn Tiger

1 Alleycat

1 Druid of the Flame

2 Druid of the Saber

1 Infest

1 Sabretooth Stalker

1 Tundra Rhino

1 Blood To Ichor

2 Cat Trick

1 Slam

1 Wrath

1 Gnash

1 Grievous Bite

1 Claw

1 Savage Roar

1 Swipe

1 Mr. Bigglesworth - Just a 0 mana 1/1

1 Big Bad Claws - 3 mana 4/2 weapon

Your opponent is the Headless Horseman, who has a 3 mana Hero Power that deals 2 damage randomly split among your minions. He also has some special cards:

Be careful: when you are about to drop him to 0 health, he doesn't die. Instead, he remains on 1 health and he spawns his Head on the board. This a 2/35 minion which you need to destroy to win the game. It will also deal 2 damage randomly split to your side of the field at the start of each of his turns.

This time around, the fight is quite more challenging. The Headless Horseman seems to have all the right cards (and Fireballs) at the right time. Last year, the Pirate costume seemed to have the upper hand. Personally, I have had better success with the Cat deck this time around: getting as much value from your Infests as possible is key, especially if you get a Stampeding Kodo.

Good luck and remember that Hallow's End will last until October 31!

So if you pick Cat Costume and then manage to get King Mosh off of an Infest it kills the boss's head in the end phase. I did it earlier today and laughed super hard.

      Chinese streamer YiLingShu has revealed a new Rogue card from Saviors of Uldum on the streaming platform Douyu.
       
      Chinese streamer YiLingShu has revealed a new Rogue card from Saviors of Uldum on the streaming platform Douyu: Bazaar Mugger.

      It's a fine addition to Rogue's kit of Burgle-themed cards. The "from another class" text is in keeping with the new design philosophy for the mechanic which enables cards like Vendetta to be active in Rogue mirror matches. Older cards such as Blink Fox and Burgle itself tend to say "from your opponent's class". Pilfer, a Classic set card, was changed in Patch 9.14 to reflect the commitment to the new direction.

      Hunter's latest additions are two massive creepy-crawlies with powerful effects.
       
       
      Two new Saviors of Uldum cards have been revealed via the PlayHearthstone Instagram story. This time, it's a pair of massive creepy-crawlies for Hunter: Wild Bloodstinger and Scarlet Webweaver.

      Wild Bloodstinger is slightly over-statted as a 6 Mana 6/9, but it will have to do battle with a Minion from your opponent's hand before you get to use those stats. This kind of effect has been seen occasionally before in Hearthstone: Dirty Rat was a much-loved (and much-hated) combo disruption card that denied many a Raza the Chained before they rotated to Wild together. Unseen Saboteur is a similar option in the current Standard card pool, but can be wildly inconsistent.
      Scarlet Webweaver is pretty much a Dreampetal Florist for Beasts. You could play King Krush for 4 Mana and do some big damage. You could also play Tundra Rhino for 0 Mana and do some big damage. The possibilities are endless.
      Taken together, these cards suggest Hunter might be playing with some bigger beasts than usual in Saviors of Uldum. This could be a nice change of pace after six months of messing around with Springpaw and various other 1/1s.

      A new Druid Spell has been revealed on Firebat's Youtube channel - and it looks to have a lot of untapped potential.
       
      Firebat has shared his exclusive Saviors of Uldum card reveal on Youtube: Hidden Oasis!

      The card has huge synergy with the new Druid quest, Untapped Potential, and makes it look potentially very strong - the card can be played on turn 6 with both of its Choose One effects combined every time if you're willing to be patient.

      That's all of today's scheduled card reveals - the next one is slated for Sunday at 6.00 AM BST, although it's always possible that we get some surprise reveals in the interim. See you then!

      The Legendary Quest card for Paladin in Saviors of Uldum has been revealed by Spanish Youtuber Atlas (alongside an adorable 1-drop that will help you complete it).
       
      The Legendary Quest card for Paladin in Saviors of Uldum has been revealed by Spanish Youtuber Atlas (alongside an adorable 1-drop that will help you complete it).
      It's all about playing minions with Reborn, the new expansion keyword. Reborn Minions come back with 1 Health the first time they die, making them especially tough to get rid of (and great to copy with Emperor Wraps, the Quest reward.)
      Alongside Making Mummies we also got Murmy, a new 1 Mana 1/1 Murloc with Reborn.

       
      Seems like Paladin's identity in Saviors of Uldum is beginning to take shape: it's playing a lot of dudes with 1 Health, whether drawing them with Salhet's Pride, generating them with Sandwasp Queen, or resurrecting them with the Reborn keyword.
      Murmy has actually been teased already during a Reddit developer AMA. Asked if there were any cute cards forthcoming in Saviors of Uldum, designer Alec Dawson said:
      Alec Dawson (/u/HS_Alec)
      There are definitely a few in this expansion, especially if you like mummies! So there you have it. Murmy. Cute. In an undead, fish monster sort of way.
      (Also quite probably a terror in Murloc Shaman.)

      A new Warlock card has been revealed by the Chinese streamer 瓦莉拉 (Valeera). It's the first of 51 Saviors of Uldum cards to be revealed at scheduled times by community figures and content creators.
       
      A new Warlock card has been revealed by the Chinese streamer 瓦莉拉 (Valeera). It's the first of 51 Saviors of Uldum cards to be revealed at scheduled times by community figures and content creators.
      It's a new 2 Mana 2/1 Rare for Warlock. Here's Expired Merchant:

      This kind of targeted discard effect has been seen before on Shriek and Reckless Diretroll - it's a nice way of mitigating the randomness of the discard mechanic. In this case it can be used to duplicate one of your power cards. That could mean an extra copy of Mountain Giant, endless chains of Soulwardens and more.
      Pour one out for the Wild players though - one Bloodreaver Gul'dan was bad enough.
