Hearthstone: Double Deathrattle Battler
Hello everybody, Geek Generation here.
When i first read about the Double Deathrattle Battler, my thoughts were that new players are going to have a hard time to get their free pack in this brawl. But when i played on the other two servers which i do not main, i manage to get the win in a game or two. I don’t remember much of what went down in those games though.
And since i crafted Sylvanas recently, i decided to give the Brawl a couple more games on the main server.
Double Deathrattle Battler, Paladin
2 x Avenge
2 x Noble Sacrifice
2 x Muster for Battle
2 x Truesilver Champion
2 x Blessing of Kings
2 x Consecration
2 x Ironbeak Owl
2 x Mad Scientist
2 x Aldor Peacekeeper
2 x Murloc Knight
2 x Piloted Shredder
2 x Sludge Belcher
2 x Tuskarr Jouster
1 x Avenging Wrath
1 x Sylvanas Windrunner
1 x The Black Knight
1 x Dr. Boom
Mad Scientists are like the cheaper version of Mysterious Challenger in this brawl. Mad Scientists help set up the Avenge, Noble Sacrifice combo very nicely, usually giving you at least a 4/3 on the board.
Murloc Knights are pretty good. With so much Hunters in the meta, a turn 4 Murloc Knight is quite difficult for them to kill. As long as there are not much opposing threat, play out Murloc Knights on turn 4. They’re dangerous enough to demand a removal or Silence. Helping to bait Silence helps to ensure Sludge Belcher value. Also, after a turn 4 Murloc Knight, don’t fret if you don’t get to hero power on turn 5. Sometimes it just happens, and you simply need that turn 5 Sludge Belcher or Tuskarr Jouster.
In my opinion, Sludge Belcher is the champion in this format. Followed close behind by Nerubian Egg (if you can activate it), Haunted Creeper (if you have Raid Leader effects), Mad Scientists and Loot Hoarders. But i don’t play most of these mostly because i’m Jousting and i don’t really want to build for activating Nerubian Eggs.
Of course, Sylvanas Windrunner and Dr. Boom would always be the better Deathrattlers. Tuskarr Jouster is pretty good in the deck mainly because of the aforementioned Deathrattlers, which costs only 2 mana. Lots of decks are going to have lots of these stuff.
What do you Silence? The high priority targets are usually Sylvanas, Mad Scientist, Sludge Belcher. But Sludge Belcher are okay sometimes for the same reason an un-Silenced Piloted Shredders are okay. Consecration can deal with the aftermath quite often.
Answer Piloted Sky Golems with Sludge Belcher and try to out tempo the opponent. Silence all turn 2 Mad Scientists. And during mulligan, with the Coin, it’s sometimes ok to keep Sludge Belcher in hand.
Ok so much for now, Geek Generation out.
