Third Wing: The Runied City of Stanglethorn
Welcome to the Legend of the Innkeeper. We’re glad you could join us for our 72nd episode.
This week we are talking about…
What did you do this week?
Top card from Wing 3
Espo – Entomb
- Blizzard talks about the recent issues with Brawl stability on launches http://www.hearthhead.com/news=250206/blizzard-addresses-tavern-brawl-and-stability-issues
Battle of Tol Barad
Magical creatures are escaping from Tol Barad! Play a minion and get a random spell of the same cost, but for free!
This Brawl requires you to create your own deck from your collection.
Spells you gain can be from any class.
Battle using premade decks, that use the discover mechanic to build a new deck as the Brawl continues!
So people are calling this week’s brawl a Deck Building one, and I guess I don’t really know what that term means cause I thought that’s what HS always was… anyway, here’s the rules:
You’ll start with a hand of 3 cards (or 4 cards, if second) and 4 cards in your deck. These cards are one of Tarnished Coin, Armor Plating, Whirling Blades or Chicken and can contain duplicates. Then, the Brawl follows a set pattern each turn.
- At the beginning of each turn you will get to Discover one card to add to your hand.
- Every card you play will be re-added into your deck.
- When you hit end turn, you will redraw 4 new cards from your deck, which could include cards you just played.
I guess a deck building game is a game where you build the deck DURING the game, which I’ve not played many games like that.
