Hi!

 

What's the purpose of flare and elven archer in this deck? I can't see it. No hunter's mark to combo with archer and flare just seems a weak card to me doing nothing. Also destroying opponent's secret is bad for the eaglehorn bow. :D

Hi!

 

What's the purpose of flare and elven archer in this deck? I can't see it. No hunter's mark to combo with archer and flare just seems a weak card to me doing nothing. Also destroying opponent's secret is bad for the eaglehorn bow. biggrin.png

 

I can't speak for the Elven Archer, but I can tell you that the Flare is an amazing card.

 

Flare has several benefits. The first (and guaranteed) benefit is that of drawing a card. Drawing a card for 1 mana, and without any condition (such as Mortal Coil having to kill a minion, for instance) is extremely valuable, especially in a combo-heavy deck such as this one. I'll explain more on that below.

 

The second benefit is destroying Secrets. Now, Flare is never going to put you at card disadvantage, since it draws a card. But if you manage to break a Secret with it, then it's a 2-for-1 card and, depending on the Secret, it can be game-breaking. Sure, getting 1 extra Durability on your Eaglehorn Bow is nice, but destroying an Iceblock, or a Noble Defender, or an Explosive Trap can be much more valuable.

 

Thirdly, Flare breaks Stealth. This is generally not very useful (especially in a deck like this that basically just ignores the board), but it can still come in handy sometimes.

 

Now, a bit more on the card-drawing aspect. With this deck, you're really just whittling your opponent down while waiting to grab a combo that can finish them off (like Leeroy + Unleash the Hounds + Kill Command for 13 damage minimum). Having a card in your deck that allows you to quickly (and almost for free!) draw a new card is very useful. It lets you quickly cycle through your deck to get to your combo. Yes, Flare "does nothing" itself (most of the time), but in a deck like this you don't need 30 cards to all do something. You need 6 cards to finish your opponent, so if you could have a deck made of only those 6 cards, you'd take it!

This makes sense. Thank you.

This is actually a very good deck. I like particularly how it counters other aggro decks e.g. warlock. 

 

It's very hard to play against a deck of this nature. If you flood the board, it gets cleared by UTH. If you play a single, strong minion misdirection utterly screws you. It also suffers less from the danger of aoe that most aggro decks are vunerable to. 

 

Sunwalker is very nasty against this deck though.

      A new Tavern Brawl has been introduced this week by Ahune the Frost Lord himself.
      In this Brawl, you will play as either Uther or Jaina. They both have premade decks and Uther is reportedly slightly better than Jaina, which is interesting since Mage usually dominates in Tavern Brawls.
      Here is Uther's deck:
      Jaina uses a Reno deck, minus the Reno:
      Both heroes are immune to damage and they cannot be healed nor keep armor. The only way to damage them is by killing the Ragnaros? minions. These are 1/4 minions and there is one of them at each side of the board. They cannot attack and upon death they deal 4 damage to the opponent of the current player. This means that you can kill both minions (the one on your side and the one on your opponent's side) and your opponent will take all the damage. Moreover, once a Ragnaros? dies, a new one will appear thus making it possible to kill multiple of them in one turn.

      Some tips you should know:
      If the game reaches the fatigue stage, in the next round the enemy that has the least amount of health will automatically die and their opponent will be crowned as the winner. At the moment, Ice Block and Eye for an Eye seem to be bugged and they are not working as intended. This will be fixed soon. Bomb Squad and Ancient Curse deal no actual damage to you, so don't be afraid! This is the 110th Brawl and it's part of the Frost Festival. If you want to find out more about the Frost Festival, check our main article on it.

      As Ragnaros' Midsummer Fire Festival has ended, it is time for Ahune the Frost Lord to take over with the Frost Festival! 
      As we explained in our previous post, this is a holiday that celebrates Arena mode. Once you log in the game, you will see that Ahune is giving you a free Arena ticket for this week. This will happen for the entire duration of the festival, so in total you will get three free Arena keys.
      You will also get a free win each time you start an Arena run, whether it's from a free or a purchsed entrance key.
      You will also get a quest to play three Arena games. This weekly quest awards you with a Knights of the Frozen Throne card pack. Once again, you will receive this quest next week and the week after that accounting for a total of three Knights of the Frozen Throne packs (assuming you complete the quests).

      Feel free to check out our Arena guides and card rankings before you step into the Arena!
      As far as the themed Tavern Brawl called Ahune's Superior Brawl is concerned, you can read more about it here.
      The Frost Festival has created speculation for the next expansion. Since it will run for three weeks, it is going to end on August 9. The day after that, August 10, is thought by many to be the date that Knight of the Frozen Throne will be released.

      Well, after the failed interview with Ben Brode and his dreams of being a Hearthstone developer squashed, the Lord of the Scourge decided to prove himself an accomplished entrepreneur and take what he's naturally good at - making ice - and adding cream. And so, behold the new ICC, Arthas' latest wondrous edifice: the Ice Cream Citadel.
      Of course, true to form, Blizzard took this little in-joke all the way and will have the Ice Cream Citadel, an actual ice cream shop, at the Petco Park Interactive Zone in San Diego near San Diego Comic-Con®, featuring two flavors: Villain-illa and Scourgeberry Sorbet.

      Greetings, mortal whelps!
      As part of my efforts to prove to the accursed Brode that I possess the necessary experience to command the Hearthstone development team, I have decided to expand my efforts to all aspects of mortal enterprise.
      At first I considered peddling power and vengeance, but according to my focus testing, the foremost human craving seems to be for cold, creamy, sweetened sludge. I have decided to create a frozen-cream sugar-ooze unlike any you have ever tasted. You will desire it.
      Prepare yourselves for the grand opening of Ice Cream Citadel, a fortress of refreshment in the scorching heat that afflicts this place. I will be on hand to personally help you conquer the heat with free ice cream. You need spend no money for your first taste of my power.
      Choose from an endless selection of TWO flavors:

      Behold my tasteful brochure:

      Attend the Petco Park Interactive Zone in San Diego near San Diego Comic-Con® and be guided to your just desserts by this map:

      You may also take photographs of me with no immediate fear of retribution. Share proof of your delicious ice cream conquests on social media using the #icecreamcitadel “hashtag,” whatever that means.
      Begin preparations for your journey now. Ice Cream Citadel will receive supplicants between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m. PDT July 20 through July 22, and 9:00 am to 5:00 pm PDT on July 23.
