Hearthstone: Banana Brawl

Hello everybody, Geek Generation here. This is a busy week, there’s so much post to post.

I was quite excited about Banana Brawl when i first learned about it. It seemed kind of fun. But like week one’s Black Rock Mountain duel, the excitement faded. It faded rather quickly when i learned that Banana Brawl was dominated by a single Mage deck. All hopes of spending time playing Banana Brawl to complete daily quests fizzled. If there isn’t much deck variation, it isn’t much fun. I suppose one could spend time figuring out a deck to specifically beat Banana Brawl Mage in Banana Brawl, but the format lasts only a couple days, i’m not sure it’s worth the effort to do it.

I’m guessing the way to play Banana Brawl is to have a mixture of low health minions and healthier minions. Low health minions are required to harvest bananas and healthier minions are required to survive the turn to eat bananas. Unless they have charge.

Anyway, i played for the Classic pack on all three servers and i’ll list my deck lists here.

Rogue

2 x Cold Blood
1 x Conceal
2 x Deadly Poison
1 x Blade Flurry
2 x Eviscerate
2 x Sap

2 x Dragon Egg
2 x Acidic Ooze
2 x Defias Ringleader
2 x Haunted Creeper
2 x Ironbeak Owl
2 x Nerubian Egg
2 x Stonesplinter Trogg
2 x Acolyte of Pain
2 x SI: 7 Agent
2 x Dragonkin Sorcerer

This was on the main server i play, so i had alot more cards and options compared to the other two decks. The win i got was kind of boring in terms of bananas. Imade turn 1 Trogg, he made turn 2 Creeper, i attacked with Trogg. I made Creeper, he made Creeper, I made Dagger, he made Eaglehorn Bow and killed my Trogg. I got a +1/+1 banana. Turn 4, i went Deadly Poison -> 2 x Cold Blood on my own Creeper. Attacked and Concealed. He made an Explosive Trap, which didn’t help because my 9/2 Creeper ate a banana.

With the other deck lists, i don’t remember much about the other games, but here are the deck lists anyway.

Paladin

2 x Light’s Justice
2 x Blessing of Might
2 x Hand of Protection
1 x Sword of Justice
2 x Truesilver Champion
2 x Consecration

1 x Clockwork Gnome
1 x Murloc Raider
2 x Acidic Swamp Ooze
1 x Argent Protector
2 x Haunted Creeper
2 x Murloc Tidehunter
2 x Nerubian Egg
2 x Acolyte of Pain
2 x Razorfen Hunter
2 x Dragonling Mechanic
2 x Gnomish Inventor

This list has alot of strange one ofs. It’s not because of any deck design considerations. I simply do not have the cards and was chucking in whatever cards i had. I think the game was against Rogue who played Vanish twice. But the Recruits kept bringing bananas to the table. When your minions eat more bananas than your opponent’s minions, you tend to win.

Hunter

2 x Hunter’s Mark
2 x Arcane Shot
2 x Animal Companion
2 x Kill Command
2 x Multi-Shot

2 x Timber Wolf
2 x Acidic Swamp Ooze
2 x Haunted Creeper
1 x Ironbeak Owl
2 x Murloc Tidehunter
2 x Ironfur Grizzly
2 x Razorfen Hunter
2 x Wolfrider
1 x Argent Commander
2 x Nerubian Egg
2 x Novice Engineer

This deck list i won against a Warlock. I’m not too sure what kind of Warlock it was, but it didn’t seem very Banana Brawl ready. It ran a host of removal spells including 2 x Hellfire. It was bananas and Argent Commander for the win.

So much for now, until next time, Go Bananas. Geek Generation out.
