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 Standard card pack for winning your first game this week.
- It’s the seventh time we see this Brawl. Last time we’ve seen it on October 5, 2022.
- 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 (where you can build a board on your first turn and then burst opponent down with AoE buffs 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 since you might have to survive until late game).
- Cards that are normally slow / come with a huge downside might turn out to be useful in this Brawl. For example, cards with effect that triggers at the start of your turn (like Doomsayer) can be guaranteed to trigger if you play them on your 1st turn. You can also drop Millhouse Manastorm on your 1st turn without worrying about the downside, although a 2 mana 4/4 without a downside isn’t even particularly good in the current year.
- 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 and then Taunting up on the second turn.
