This week’s Tavern Brawl is one we have had a few times: ShiftCon. You pick your class and get a deck full of random class spells, and Shifter Zerus. The strategy is having patience to wait until the cards become decent/useful. Sometimes it’s easier said than done.
Naturally, I start with the mage. They probably have the best “control” cards to accent your random minions. I guess more strategy could be in selecting your cards. For some reason, I kept the 2 “shift” cards. The better strategy is to keep class cards (unless they are bad) and get rid of any “shifters”, as your deck is filled with them.
My opponent felt like playing Lorewalker Cho was the way to go. Brilliant, but who’s to say I had any spells? I did, but I didn’t play them. They ran themselves out of cards, and I got the copies of them. I happily gave them back, as I used them to damage Mr. Cho. This didn’t go over well with my opponent, so they left.
ShiftCon is kind of fun, if you can get over the whole randomness. It’s not as bad as some of the brawls. The shift is on, so get on in there, and get that free pack! See you next week!
