    Update on Mukla Rogue: it’s really, really, really bad against Even Shaman and Odd Paladin.

    Mukla is so you have more tall 3 drops again Warlock. X/4 and X/5 are very difficult to deal with cleanly when you can't run Shadowbolt.

    Alternatively, the Warlock can drop a 2/4 taunt on turn 2 that deals 2 damage to them, and then use a 4 mana Soulstone on turn four against Mukla to get that life back. As the Warlock I went up against did.

    Do with this information what you will, but playing Skelemancer in this week's brawl will crash your opponent's game if they are playing on iOS and they won't be able to reconnect.

    This brawl is really fun, 6-1 so far

    I found that playing Hunter and using all Charge minions + King Krush was pretty good.

    I've had success with aoe spell mage and weapon rogue - assassins blade + poison is exact lethal over 4 turns

    Chargers work well too

    Marsh Drake works really well in this brawl, too. As does Leeroy. Just set up your board so that the minions they spawn are going to get auto-attacked to death.

    I haven't tried it becaue it's boring but inner fire / divine spirit probably works super well. Turn 1/2 6/6 paired with a bishop is GG, late game a 12/12 is similar

    I don't think they do damage based on their attack values, do they?

    They do not. They have specific card text that says what they do. Now if you silence your own minion...

    The one warlock I saw with Jaraxxus had the skull out, so instead of just winning he had a 3/15, which is nice, but can be dealt with

  • YiliasYilias Registered User regular
    A banning utility is nice because they can use it for solo content where stuff like Mindbreaker or Alex are currently softbanned and they can likely extend it to a tournament setting if they want.

    You could include phantom militia and play it only on turn 9 which gives you exactly 7, plus things like stonehills

    You could also do the hunter quest since you have enough pawns

    it's trivial to complete the rogue quest but having your chess pieces be 4/4s doesn't really provide much opportunity besides that you can silence them to go face

  • Marty81Marty81 Registered User regular
    Meteor was pretty good. Hah.

  • PhyphorPhyphor Building Planet Busters Tasting FruitRegistered User regular
    Swamp king dred + giant sand worm are amazing. I would skip including the quest, I completed it only once (and lost) in about 5 games

  • fortyforty Registered User regular
    Looks like Evolve and Devolve are banned as well.

    Equality and consecrate led to a very bad turn 6 for my first opponent. Pack got me avenging wrath, fitting.

    Started at 3 stars away from legend tonight. Played 7 games tonight and went 3-4. Mostly all legendary players too. Of the losses, 3 came to Rogues which absolutely wreck the Big Druid deck @Beastwizard posted. So frustrating!

    Should I switch to something else for the final push or just stick with this deck?

    Look at your last 20 games and pick the deck you're most familiar with that has the best win rate/tech accordingly against the classes you're facing.

    My final push was primarily me getting lucky and beating a bunch of favored opponents.

    yGSsXox.png?1

    A collective 4-1 against Warrior/Mage/Warlock. If I'd lost all my unfavorable matchups I'd have been 8-7 instead of 12-3 which would have been a very different story. Sometimes you just need the stars to align in addition to playing well.

    Report #96 is up. Every class but Priest has a T1 or 2 deck. The section on Leeroy in Murloc Mage is cute. They've also added the ability to see power ranks for 9-5 and 14-10 on https://www.vicioussyndicate.com/drr/vs-power-rankings-data-reaper-report/

    I'm having a blast with this Brawl. Super fucking fun.

    I'm rocking a BIG BEAST HUNTER that I made:

    V9ySCeP.png
    AAEBAR8G+Aj9rwLGwgKWwwLt0QK26gIAAA==

    Use Chess Pieces to carry you til T7/8, drop fatties, win win win.

    I dropped Kath on 8, she pulled Giant Sandworm. It gets chunked pretty hard, I managed to kill off most of the board anyway and then it dies. I drop Abominable Bowman and Kath dies to an autoattack (at 1 health) and she pulls KING KRUSH

    Bowman trades into a Queen, pulls Sandworm again.

    My opponent Pyroblasts it

    I've been going Warrior this brawl, and armorsmith is fucking ridiculous. I had 44 armor at the end of this last game. I just put her on the far left and kept going wide so she was untouchable and I kept taking damage.

    Eventually Grom Hellscream shows up and is like, "Hey guys how's it going? I heard that people auto-attack in here."

    Greetings everyone!

    Some players have been raising concerns that matchmaking at Legend ranks isn’t working properly. Please rest assured that we have not changed the matchmaking calculations since our 10.2 update. However, the Ranked Play update from 10.2 did result in an increased number of people reaching Legend, and their matchmaking values being much closer together.

    With a tighter distribution of matchmaking ratings, losing games at lower Legend ranks can result in a matchmaking rating significantly worse than non-Legend players. Once a Legend player has a low matchmaking rating, it can become difficult for them to gain ranks.

    Ranked Play is very important to us, and we’ve been watching this situation very closely as it has evolved since March. To help improve the Legend rank experience, we are changing how Legend players get matched against non-Legend players, starting with our July Ranked Play Season. With that change, Legend players will have to lose significantly more games before matching against a non-Legend player.

    Additional changes to Ranked Play will be coming later this year, and those should also help to improve the experience. We’ll provide more details when those features are closer to release.

    Thanks for your continued support of Hearthstone, and we’ll see you in the Tavern.

    Cheers!
