      It appears that it is a mix of what you have posted and the Brawliseum event, using Standard format.

        Sorry, I jumped the gun on this one. I can’t access it yet since I’m on EU and someone told me that it’s Miniature Warfare, but didn’t add that it’s Brawliseum, lol.

    Easy win with C’thun warrior. Get loads of armor adding abilities and c’thun gear. Lots of removal in weapons.

    In that case Dirty Rat should be balanced, because before that, there were no way of teching against Combo decks (playing with yourself decks), unless you could mill them, even then they could play around mill accordingly. If you think Potion of Madness, Firelands Portal and Netherspite Historian are balanced, you might rethink that. Kabal Talonpriest? Fine. I get your point. But Potion of Madness, stealing a minion, destroying another opponent minion with the same minion and activate the deathrattle effect of the minion you just stole is way overboard. Firelands Portal, I don”t really need to tell you why, even Blizzard tried to print bad 5-mana minion to semi-nerf this card. It is still a very strong card that can be runned in any Mage nowadays. Netherspite Historian, Discovering a fourth Drakonid Operative or whatever late-game dragon to keep you in the game, and even now discovering a fourth Duskbreaker is pretty annoying and ridiculous to deal with.

    24 – 1 So i thought i should post it !
    Beating all warlocks and rogue, only lost one game to aggro shaman with both bonemares and fungalmancers..

    Usually Otk turn 5 or 6, some times turn 7. But its no problem to keep health up that long. There comes the high winrate . If you face most aggro, add one greater healing potion and have fun πŸ™‚

        November 3, 2017 at 5:26 am

        Most of the Legendaries in that list are in Standard – and I’d guess Mysterious Challenger is the MVP with the Wild Secrets and he’s only Epic.

        … or Bonemare which is Standard common and totally OP in this brawl (as opposed to just OP as it is normally). I was playing with a Druid deck, Ancient of War into Bonemare (5/10 Taunt) on T2 (1 on the coin) is a pretty solid start as you can then dump a load of minions behind it and buff them.

        Wild Legendaries aren’t as OP as you might think.

    I made a hunter deck with The Marsh Queen and Dinomancy. Works great and is fun because it’s so easy to complete The Marsh Queen quest with every minion costing 1 mana. Add the Dinomancy +2/ +2 buff on whatever card you choose, and it it’s a pretty awesome and fun deck for this Tavern Brawl.

    Here’s my deck:

    I just did a battle cry deck focusing mainly on kraken and boom with all the available return to hand effects. You wanna go rogue to get shadow step and the brewmasters. Plus, you get a lot of defense against 1/1s (fok, shiv etc)

    You can choose between both win conditions but kraken would be more direct. Also add bran to make things more interesting.

  30. Sismo
    November 9, 2016 at 10:10 am

    How does work something like shadowstep? The reduced cost/stats get applied again?
    A card I think they are overlooking is curator, I mean, this guy can bring 3 cards that cost 1 to your hand, let’s say malygos (or alextrasa), stampede kodo (hits anything) and corrupted seer (who can wipe the whole table for 1)

        And only a 4 card combo requiring two one-of’s and both of a two-of (5 cards if you include counterfeit coin in case of going first)!!! It’s even less likely than someone just conceding at the start of a match lol.

      I didn’t have 2 copies of Ancient of War/Lore so I added in Ragnaros. Drew him on turn one and it won me the game after buffing him with a few spells and using a faceless manipulator as a finisher combo.
