Tavern Brawl - The League of Explorers: Revived!

Recommended Posts


This new Tavern Brawl is the first one of the Onwards to Uldum event that will conclude with the release of the new single-player content.

With the Tombs of Terror Adventure announced, it's time that you gather up the League of Explorers in order to face the League of E.V.I.L. This week's Tavern Brawl serves as a nice introduction to the Tombs of Terror, since it also has the Dungeon Run format.

You will start off as Elise, a Druid/Priest, and you will work your way through 5 bosses in total. You will face two enemy bosses (the first and the last one) while the middle bosses are the rest of the member of the League of Explorers: you will free up Sir Finley from the sands, you will battle along with Brann against a dinosaur and you will have to kick some sense into Reno.

Deck and Card Buckets

Your Starting Deck is mostly comprised of Druid cards with Token and Spell synergies.

After beating your fellow League members, their respective cards (Sir Finley of the Sands, Dinotamer Brann, Reno the Relicologist) will be added to your deck. As usual, you will be offered card buckets and you will have two choices of Treasures.  From our experience playing the Brawl, the game seems to be smart enough and it doesn't offer you duplicates, so you will still have a Highlander deck.

As far as the card buckets go, you will be offered both Druid and Priest cards.

The Bosses


Terraviss is the first boss you will face. He sports 30 Health and he has the 2-mana Hero Power "Well Equipped". The Hero Power reads "Equip a random weapon. If you already have one, give it +1 attack".


Sir Finley Mrrgglton

FInley's fight is a tad more complicated. The poor Murloc is trapped in sands and you will have to free him up.

His board will start with three 0/3 Pile of Sand minions. As long as there are alive Pile of Sands on the opponent's side of the board, the enemy Hero will remain immune. Moreover, the Pile of Sands will spawn certain minions when they die.


We saw the following minions during our playthrough:

Finley won't play any cards, but his Hero Power will keep you busy. "Shifting Sands" will deal 1 damage to all minions and summon a Pile of Sand.


Basically, in this encounter you will have to build a board big enough to kill the Pile of Sands, kill off (or ignore) whatever threat spawns off them and hit the Boss's face when it's not immune. It's also slightly annoying that your Starting Deck seems to have a considerable amount of 1-Health minions, which are useless in this fight.

Brann Bronzebeard

This is another original encounter, since we have the first co-operative fight with an A.I. opponent/co-player.

You will have to beat and tame a King Krush minion, who swaps sides of the board at each turn. King Krush, Untamed has 60 health and he starts with 8 attack. Each turn, he will also randomly do attack damage on either a minion or a... face at the other side of the board. His attack went up to 10 at some point - I think, it was when he dropped below 30 health.


Brann's Hero Power will summon a random dinosaur which can range from Crackling Razormaw to Direhorn Hatchling. Our advice: let Brann do the work, while you keep your side of the board as full as possible to avoid face damage.

Reno Jackson

Reno has gone crazy with his Gattling Wand and he needs some convincing in order to join you against the League of E.V.I.L.

His Hero Power is the main problem: it does randomly split damage to everyone, working like Arcane Missiles on steroids. It will start at 3 damage, doing 1 damage at a time, with the damage increasing by 1 each turn. You will also have to deal with Reno's annoying Mage spells and minions.


This is an endurance race: most of the damage on Reno's face will be done by his own Hero Power. You just have to keep your board as full as possible, while dealing with annoyances like Sorcerer's Apprentice, Magic Dart Frog and even Archmage Antonidas.

Dark Pharaoh Tekahn

The last boss, Tekahn, felt much more straightforward compared to the previous ones. His Hero Power is EVIL Grasp, which reads: "Add a random Lackey to your hand. All Lackeys are 4/4".



For completing the Tavern Brawl, per usual you will get a Classic card pack.

There's also a special Legendary Quest available which awards a Saviors of Uldum card pack for participating in the Brawl.

Quite fun Brawl.

You just have to win against Teraviss to get the two card packages.

You do not get anything extra for beating all 5  bosses.

But doing a highlander dungerun run was quite fun

      Dual-Class Heroes!

      When they aren’t delving the depths of deserted dunes, Elise, Brann, Finley, and Reno have spent their spare time in the desert learning new crafts.

      Buried under the sands of Uldum for countless eons, the League of Explorers has clashed with the first of the terrible Plague Lords in the Lost City of the Tol’vir. Reno has secured his hat, strapped on his Gatling Wand and, in his usual fashion, is diving headlong into the Lost City to battle the Plague Lord of Murlocs!
      The Plague Lord of Murlocs has slipped some slimy friends into the decks of both players and bosses. Draw a “Surprise! Murlocs!” card to summon a random number of Murlocs onto your board.

      Chapter 2: Scorching Dunes

      In an effort to improve Masters Qualifiers and Masters Tour events, Blizzard outlined adjustments that will be implemented on October 1.
      Blizzard (Source)
      We’ve surveyed a number of Masters Qualifier players to get a better understanding of pain points in the current structure of the program. Today, we’re ready to share the changes we’ll be making to improve Masters Qualifiers and Masters Tour events. The adjustments outlined here will be implemented on October 1 and are explained in more detail below.
      Masters Qualifiers and Ladder
      Masters Tour Qualifiers will use the Conquest, best-of-three, 3 decks with a ban format. Masters Qualifiers will be expanded to a maximum capacity of 512 players. To reduce tournament lengths, we will be changing all Masters Qualifiers to single elimination. If a player makes Top 8 at least six times in a qualifying season currently, they will earn an invite. To make this qualification path easier, we’re reducing this number down to five. We will be going back to only awarding the first-place competitor in Masters Qualifiers with an invite to its corresponding Masters Tour event. We are adding more pack prizing to Masters Qualifiers. We will be giving direct invites for Masters Tour events to the Top 16 not-yet-invited ladder players from each region at the end of every month, totaling out to 96 invites per qualifying period. Masters Tour
      We will be changing the format for the Masters Tour to Conquest, best-of-five, 4 decks with a ban format, starting with Masters Tour Bucharest. We are scaling back the number of Swiss rounds each Masters Tour has from the current 12 down to 9 and will be moving to a single-elimination bracket for the Top 8 of Masters Tour events.
      Regarding Format Changes
      When we announced Specialist at the beginning of the year, we listened carefully to the feedback of the participating players. We appreciate the response from the community and have decided to make the following changes. Starting October 3, Masters Qualifiers will use the Conquest, best-of-three, 3 decks with a ban format. This is to ensure that the format is simple for new players entering the competitive system.
      Based on the feedback from Masters Tour players, we will be changing the format for the Masters Tour to Conquest, best-of-five, 4 decks with a ban format, starting with Masters Tour Bucharest. Given that this format change increases the average time it takes to complete a round, we are scaling back the number of Swiss rounds each Masters Tour has from the current 12 down to 9. To further reduce the length of days, we will be going to a straight single-elimination bracket for the Top 8 of the tournament. We feel that the additional games per match adequately offset the reduction in total matches played.
      Regarding Masters Qualifier Changes
      To free up the aforementioned invites we’re allocating for Ladder finishes, we will be going back to only awarding the first-place competitor in Masters Qualifiers with an invite to its corresponding Masters Tour event, instead of both the winner and runner up. We also need to adjust the threshold for the number of Top 8 finishes in each qualifying period. If a player makes Top 8 at least 6 times in a qualifying season currently, they will earn an invite. We’re bumping this number down to 5.
      Additionally, one of the biggest pieces of feedback we received was that Masters Qualifiers are taking too long. Right now, single elimination tournaments are taking 6 hours on average, compared to 12 hours with Swiss. To reduce lengths of tournaments, we will be changing all Masters Qualifiers to single elimination.
      We’ll also be expanding Masters Qualifiers to a maximum capacity of 512 players. We are making this change so that we won’t have to turn anyone away from a Masters Qualifier that they’d like to participate in, which we have experienced in European Qualifiers specifically.
      New Breakdown of Invites
      With ladder playing a larger role in qualifying paths for Masters Tours, we wanted to take inventory of all paths into a Masters Tour. Our goal is to offer approximately 350 invites into each event. Here is the new breakdown for how Masters Tour Invitations will be distributed:

      Packs on Packs on Packs
      Finally, since we’ve increased the number of participants in each tournament, we wanted to rework the tournament pack prizing. You can see the new pack prizing in the chart below. Overall this represents an addition in pack prizes compared to the past.
      Finish Prizes Packs Per Prize Finish 1-2 20 40 3-4 15 30 5-8 10 40 9-16 5 40 17-32 4 64 33-64 3 96 65-128 2 128 129-256 1 128 Total Packs Given   566
      This post is only a summary of the changes, the official rules spell out the exact competition details. In addition to the above changes, our tournament platform partner Battlefy is excited to share additional features they have been working on. We will be announcing the location and qualification timeline of the next Masters Tour in the coming days, so keep it tuned to playhearthstone.com/esports!
