This week, the Hearthstone Tavern Brawl puts you to an interesting test. Can you master Hearthstone synergy and create a deck made entirely of three cards? Ten copies of each, of course, so your options are seemingly endless. For this type of brawl, I’m just going to list some of the decks I used, and how well they worked.
My first deck was of the Druid variety. I used Innervate, Dark Arakkoa, and C’Thun. The idea was to continuously build up C’Thun within my deck while playing some decently powerful taunt bodies. Once those bodies occupied the board, I would spend back to back turns using Innervate to get huge C’Thuns on the board.
My second deck was a Shaman. Evolve, Kel’Thuzad, and Barnes. My goal was to flood the board with Kel’Thuzads and then use evolve to have a board full of 9-drop minions that I got for like five mana. It seemed perfect at the time, but as it turns out, Barnes is a fickle card even with there only being two minions in your deck. I don’t think I managed to get a single victory with that one.
I also made a Shaman deck that was Barnes, Emperor Thaurissan, and Evolve. That deck was at a 50/50 win rate, as it focused primarily on reducing the cost of cards in my hand so I could flood the board. When Barnes summoned a Thaurissan I could even use evolve right then and there to get two high cost minions.
The Top Two Tavern Brawl stands as one of my all-time favorites. It was creative, executed superbly, and all around fun to play. But this one is even better. It gives you a chance to get creative, and build some pretty fun combos. I faced a warrior who only had cursed blade, upgrade, and Zombie Chow. I’ve never seen a viable cursed blade deck before today. I still beat him, but it was super creative. Probably should have stuck with Fiery War Axe though.
This is definitely one of the better Tavern Brawls, so get in there and win yourself that free pack!
