Tavern Brawl: Henchmania!

Recommended Posts

ANTzBrg.png

This brand new Tavern Brawl gives us a glimpse of the upcoming Adventure.

In this Brawl you will play against an actual player. You get to choose a new Hero with pre-constructed deck and a unique Hero Power. There are 4 different Rogue Heroes, as well as a Warrior, Hunter, Priest, Paladin and Druid.

The Heroes and their Hero Powers are :

  • Mr. Chu - A "personal safety specialist".
    • Class: Warrior
    • Hero Power (1): Shuffle an explosive into your opponents deck.
  • Candlebeard - Candle and Eyepatch enthusiast.
    • Class: Rogue
    • Hero Power (1): Give a minion Charge.
  • Myra Rotspring - Scientifically proven to be deadly.
    • Class: Rogue
    • Hero Power (2): Trigger a random friendly minion's Deathrattle.
  • George the Fallen - Lost without Karl.
    • Class: Paladin
    • Hero Power (2): Give all your minions Divine Shield.
  • Manhunter Ivan - Hunting without a permit!
    • Class: Hunter
    • Hero Power (2): Put a random Secret from your deck into the battlefield.
  • Voodoomaster Vex - Who do? You do! Do what? Remind me of Vex.
    • Class: Rogue
    • Hero Power (Passive): All Battlecries and Deathrattles trigger twice.
  • Russel the Bard - Here to write an E.V.I.L. anthem!
    • Class: Rogue
    • Hero Power (2): Gain control of an enemy minion with 2 or less Attack.
  • Sephira Dusktalon - She's got claws that catch!
    • Class: Druid
    • Hero Power (Passive): Whenever your opponent casts a spell, draw a spell from your deck.
  • Raeth Ghostsong - Just darn creepy!
    • Class: Priest
    • Hero Power (1): Deal 1 damage to all minions. If any die, refresh this.

When the game begins, both players will get to choose one out of the following Passive effects:

For strategies and best picks, from my experience and from what people say on social media, Mr. Chu is by far the weakest out of them all. Myra Rotspring and Voodomaster Vex work well with the Dr. Boom passive, although Vex can be countered if your opponent picks the same passive. Candlebeard and Togwaggle passive is pretty insane for a quick win.

As far as rewards are concerned, by winning this Brawl you will get your usual Classic pack. However, there's also a special Quest this week: by playing the Tavern Brawl 3 times, you will also get a Rise of Shadows pack.

Henchmania gives us a glimpse of the upcoming solo Adventure (which should be announced any day now). The new Heroes with the unique Hero Powers, along with the special Passives, are already proof of that, but you can also see Mr. Chu in the teaser image for the single-player content:

Candlebeard cannot be beaten in any way since no class can heal and no class has a single taunt you are forced to take insane face damage from first turn while your card cost always more than what he can do. Usually by 4th turn he win while someone like Mr. Chu can't even play a single card before die. 1 mana cost give the most broken ability in the game to any minion while Chu has the most useless hero power ever seen... it shoulda have been put a 15-20 damage explosive not a 2 damage explosive to at least being comparable to candlebeard and even if they give the ability put a 30 damage explosive each turn at cost 1 Candlebeard gonna win most of the games anyway since the chance you not draw them by his 4th turn is extremely high.

No Chu minions are all big and meant to be dropped with The Boomship or summoned with the 10 mana spell.

I think they are Grommash Hellscream Bull Dozer Amani War Bear.

Chu also is forced to take Lazul ability since almost all cards are spells so you get some enemy minion to play other than Dr Boom hero power made mechs. Also if you don't draw Dr Boom before 7th turn you are guaranteed to lose even if the enemy is slow since his hero power is so bad and you need to remove it as fast as possible.

      Polish YouTuber MKRR has revealed two new Rogue cards designed around the Combo mechanic: Hooked Scimitar and Whirlkick Master.
       
      The latest card reveals from Saviors of Uldum have been posted by Polish YouTuber MKRR: Hooked Scimitar and Whirlkick Master!

      Hooked Scimitar looks like a powerful weapon in any Rogue deck - finding activators for the Combo effect has never been problematic, and a 4/2 Weapon for 3 Mana is a very good deal. It will be interesting to see whether decks built around Raiding Party will favour this card over Waggle Pick, which is more expensive but has a potential upside through its Deathrattle.
      Whirlkick Master is a little harder to evaluate. It's potentially a good little value factory, and it can start a chain of generated cards much the same way Lyra the Sunshard and Underbelly Angler can. 2 Mana 1/2s aren't great, but this might be one to keep an eye on.

      GameSpot have revealed a new 1-Mana neutral Minion. It has a huge payoff for those who can complete its elaborate ritual.
       
      GameSpot have revealed the latest card from Saviors of Uldum: Mogu Cultist!

      It's an inauspicious 1 Mana 1/1 until you can complete its "ritual" by getting 7 copies on the board at once. Do that and you'll be rewarded with Highkeeper Ra, a huge threat which should seal your opponent out of the game, if not simply deal lethal damage on the spot. It's a similar challenge to that posed by the recently revealed Desert Obelisk, but more extreme in both payoff and difficulty.

      It will take time to figure out how to achieve this condition. It could be fairly straightforward in Rogue with the use of Lab Recruiter and Togwaggle's Scheme, but will that be a better plan than simply spamming huge Pogo-Hoppers?
      In other classes the options are less obvious. It might be possible in Priest, thanks to Mass Resurrection and a plethora of copy effects like Vivid Nightmare, but nothing immediately leaps out at us. Let us know if you can solve the puzzle in the comments below!
      GameSpot also published an interview with Hearthstone designers Peter Whalen and Alec Dawson to accompany the card reveal, in which they do some light theory-crafting on the new card. Peter Whalen expanded on the fantasy behind it:

      A new Mage card has been revealed by Brazilian YouTuber Nightmare.
       
      A new card from Saviors of Uldum has been revealed by the Brazilian YouTuber Nightmare: Tortollan Pilgrim!

      It's reminiscent of Tortollan Primalist, Grand Archivist and Spiteful Summoner. Like the latter two cards, it rewards you for building a minion-heavy deck with a few high-impact spells at the top of the curve.
      If you've been pining for the return of Yogg-Saron, Hope's End, Tortollan Pilgrim might help scratch that itch in combination with Puzzle Box of Yogg-Saron.

      Other potentially powerful things to do with the card would be Flamestrike. Luna's Pocket Galaxy and Power of Creation. If you can play it on an empty board, it could even cast Conjurer's Calling on itself for two random 8-Drops. And as the card says "Copy", you'll still have the card in your deck available to draw into later, which wasn't the case with Grand Archivist.

      Shaman gets a new Weapon for Totem decks in a spectacular Lego stop motion reveal video.
       
      A new Shaman card has been revealed by the Taiwanese YouTuber and stop-motion animator Jordan Tseng: Splitting Axe!

      The new weapon offers synergy with Totems, something we haven't seen Shaman doing much of lately. It could be powerful under the right circumstances, especially if you're able to copy a premium Totem such as Mana Tide Totem or Nightmare Amalgam, but it's not clear that it fits into any existing Shaman deck. Its purpose may become clearer as we see more new cards from the set.
      The stop motion Lego reveal video is really spectacular, so do check out the whole thing. It was made in collaboration with Cid Hsiao, who is apparently an official Lego Ambassador - probably the coolest title you can have in 2019. Watch below:

      Cloud Prince and Arcane Flakmage make a powerful case for the revival of the Secret Mage archetype.
       
      Two new Mage cards have been shared on YouTube by the South Korean streamer and Hearthstone Grandmaster Flurry: Cloud Prince and Arcane Flakmage!

      The last real reason to play Mage Secrets left when Arcanologist and the rest of Journey to Un'goro rotated out of Standard in April. These two cards offer extremely powerful payoffs for having some Secrets, so perhaps Secret Mage will be back with a vengeance.
      Cloud Prince looks very much like Sunreaver Warmage's meaner big brother. It's important to note that its 6-damage Battlecry is able to go face, which isn't always the case with new cards. The extra burn damage option will make it right at home alongside Fireball and Frostbolt.
      Arcane Flakmage dishes out a free Consecration whenever you play a Secret. Secret Mage will be a lot slower without its turn 1 Mana Wyrm, so this efficient board clear option should be a big help to it. It's a flexible card with three clear uses: stick it on turn 2 and follow up with a Secret on turn 3; combine it with a Secret on turn 5; or combine it with two Secrets on turn 8 for a massive swing turn.
