Hearthstone Tavern Brawl: Gift Exchange
Hello everybody, Geek Generation here. This week’s tavern brawl is Gift Exchange. In Gift Exchange, at the beginning of each turn, if a player do not have a Winter’s Veil Gift on his side of the board, he receives one.
Killing a non-silenced Stolen Winter’s Veil Gift gives lets the player (the one who made the kill) discover a class card from the gift’s original owner’s class. The discovered card gets a 5 mana discount.
The strategy is generally to:
1) Kill Winter’s Veil Gifts
2) Deny your opponent from killing Winter’s Veil Gifts
3) Cash in Stolen Winter Veil’s Gifts quickly to make discounted high value plays
2 x Corruption
2 x Power Overwhelming
2 x Soulfire
2 x Annoy-o-Tron
2 x Crazed Alchemist
2 x Doomsayer
2 x Demonwrath
2 x Jungle Panther
2 x Kabal Courier
2 x Shadow Bolt
2 x Silverware Golem
2 x Void Terror
2 x Kooky Chemist
2 x Siphon Soul
2 x Abyssal Enforcer
Do note that if you just received the Winter’s Veil Gift that turn, it has summoning sickness and requires Charge to attack on the same turn. As such, buff cards like Abusive Sergeants are not that useful. Power Overwhelming is still ok though as it let’s your gift die on turn 1.
I just checked Hearthpwn, my deck is similar to the community voted best deck. That deck is probably more refined than mine. Kabal Courier is rather bad card. I was thinking of value for the 29th and 30th card. But it’s just too slow.
The Hearthpwn deck has Nerubian Eggs, Wrathguard and Youthful Brewmaster, all of which is well suited for the aforementioned strategy for this Brawl. These cards should replace Jungle Panther, Kabal Courier and Abyssal Enforcer.
I still like Silverware Golem in the deck though. Because it’s so funny when it manages to luck out and drop onto the board from a full hand. I should replace Shadow Bolt with Fist of Jaraxxus.
The one card you should never play is Lord Jaraxxus. It’s just too easy for the opponent to get a Sacrificial Pact from your gifts.
Ok so much for now, Geek Generation out.
