This week’s Tavern Brawl is: Gadgetzan Throw-Down. Not to be confused with the Battle for Gadgetzan. You face off as one of Gadgetzan’s powerful crime bosses vs one of the others. Your deck will be filled with Mean Streets of Gadgetzan cards. This is probably a battle that was better suited for the release of the last expansion (and very well could have been in the works) than coming weeks before the new expansion. At any rate, here it is!
My first match I drew Aya Blackpaw, a druid. She has shaman cards as well as druid ones. Her hero power is: Summon a 1/1 Jade idol for 4 mana. It increases every time you use it or summon a Jade Idol. Han’Cho is a paladin. He seemed very minion-centric. Not sure what his other class cards are. His hero power: Give a random minion in your hand +2/+2 for 2 mana. I think my opponent was too into buffing his players.
I was getting beat pretty thoroughly for most of the match, but eventually got a couple minions on the board. The match went quickly from me being down 9 health to 27ish, to my opponent conceding. Hang in there. You never know in this brawl.
I played one more match so I could check out the 3rd boss: Kazakus. He is a mage. His hero power is: Add a random potion to your hand, for 2 mana.
If you haven’t played Hearthstone in a while, this is a good match for you. It’s a change up from the “create your deck” type brawls. It’s heavily random, but hang in there. It might look like you are down and out; a turn or two later you might be poised for the win. It happened in both my matches.
So get in there and have some fun, and get your free pack! See you next week!
