Now let’s head over to the Tavern Brawl!
Hearthstone Tavern Brawl: Rise of the Mech
“Dr. Boom has spun up a brand new batch of powerful decks and YOU’RE the test subject! Take control of a newly-improved Mech Deck!”
- The reward is, as always, a Classic pack.
- You will start with a random deck and a random class.
From my personal experience in this mode, Mage and Priest didn’t have mechs, but Priest could use Mind Vision or Toughsteal to get some mechs from the opponent’s deck.
Mage is pretty strong and has a deck more like Freeze mage deck. It contains Alexstraza and Antonidas and a lot of spells, but the Luna’s Pocket Galaxy card is what you want to get and play before drawing the high cost minions. It will make the cost of all the minions in the deck 1 mana – I was able to use it and drew the Doomsayer for 1 mana, but my opponent (Priest) conceded:
As for the other classes so far, it was difficult to even get to play with them or against them, but thanks to Reddit user cnpjphillypwn on the Hearthstone subreddit, we learned that the other classes are similar to these decks:
- Mech Buff Paladin
- Zerek Buff Talanji Priest
- Luna’s OTK Spell Damage Mage
- Plot Twist Shuffle Morrigan Warlock
- Pogo Rogue
Paladin is the strongest deck in the Brawl if you know how to magnetize your mechs. If you do have a chance to play Rafaam, the Warlock should do fine, but he doesn’t have a chance against the Paladin.
