This week’s Tavern Brawl is “A Temporus Shift”!
Official Description for A Temporus Shift
Time is an illusion, turn times doubly so. Build a standard deck and each turn you’ll get an extra turn!
A Temporus Shift Chalkboard
- You get one Year of the Phoenix for winning your first game this week.
- It’s the fourth time we see this Brawl. Last time we’ve seen it on March 17, 2021.
- It’s a PvP Brawl.
- It’s a build your own deck Brawl.
- The Brawl’s format is Standard.
- You play with normal, Standard decks with one twist – each player takes 2 turns instead of one at a time (except the first turn – player going first takes only one turn to start with as a balance measure).
- You want to find a deck that can take the best advantage of that – probably an Aggro deck, especially with some powerful buffs (such as Token Druid, where you can build a board on your first turn and then burst opponent down with Savage Roar on your second). You can also try some combo decks, which set up combo on first turn and then perform it on second turn (although those might not do very well vs Aggro).
- Cards that are normally slow / come with a huge downside might turn out to be useful in this Brawl. For example, if you build a slower deck, Doomsayer played on your 1st turn is a guaranteed board clear. You can also drop Millhouse Manastorm on your first turn without worrying about the downside. On the other hand, cards with Rush don’t matter as much.
- When building a slow deck, Taunts have as big of a role as board clears. Since you can’t play board clears between your opponent’s turn, all you can do is prevent some damage with Taunts. So if you want to play a longer, Control game, the ideal scenario is playing a board clear on your first turn (either AoE or Doomsayer, which is guaranteed to trigger) and then Taunting up on second turn.
