"How much are you willing to sacrifice for power? All your spells will cost health instead of mana!"

Hearthstone Tavern Brawl deck-building advice

This is the eight time Hearthstone players will face this Tavern Brawl (first time this year). In this particular Hearthstone Tavern Brawl, the winning strategies and decks are easy to spot. With no actual Mana limitation, the rules encourage decks with lots of draw and direct damage to close games as fast as turn 1.

This Hearthstone Tavern Brawl lets everyone play the game as if it was Yu-Gi-Oh. As if this was a Duel, you either combo your opponent in the first turn or die trying.

Some classes have the upper hand this week. Pile up all the card draw and damage spells you can get and you will only lose to the rope. I’d recommend practicing your APM before entering the tavern.

Deck codes

The following Hearthstone decks are some examples of what can work in Blood Magic Tavern Brawl.

The idea behind both decks is to abuse Blood's Magic Hearthstone Tavern Brawl "infinite mana" to OTK your opponent turn 1. Card draw is paramount for not running out of gas.

Demon Hunter has an edge over Druid since it has better reach and can become immune with Relentless Pursuit and Blur, but both decks work. You can include Renathal for a chance of winning when going second, but at the same time, more cards require better APM to pull off Turn 1 OTKs and sometimes the 5 extra health isn't even enough.

Last but not least, I wanted to highlight a deck that I had tons of fun with during the previous edition. Pacific Onion took a different approach to Blood Magic Hearthstone Tavern Brawl with Front Lines Paladin.

Paladin uses Order in the Court to tutor Front Lines and just win the game. While this deck has many minions and a higher fail rate, who doesn't like 7 Charge minions delivering +30 damage? If you are still eager for more, Clark HELLSCREAM made a Youtube video with turn 1 OTKs for every class (except Death Knight) two years ago that can serve as inspiration too.

I hope you enjoy this Blood Magic Hearthstone Tavern Brawl and that you find these decks useful. Stay tuned to for more Hearthstone news and updates. See you next time in the Tavern.
