I did Rogue for my first go round. You still have Backstab, Sap, Eviscerate and many of the good Rogue minions.

Almost as hard as deciding which Copper to trash when you play Moneylender.

This brawl makes games last a long time I find. First game went to fatigue.

Also, its 30 raven idol decks.

The first game I played of this Brawl, I got wrecked by a Hunter that got Gadgetzan Auctioneer that I could not answer. Gadgetzan is absurd in this Brawl.

My first game of this brawl, Mana addict was one of my first minions. Easy pack.

Speaking of easy packs, thanks to you KingZog for being my go-to guy for the Watch and Learn quest. I've haven't seen you lose yet.

I feel honored. My win rate is pretty good, but I definitely lose sometimes.

I've seen lose but only because he has been my goto guy for months on end. It's always Arena I see him lose in, never constructed.

Play Mage.
Raven Idol -> Unstable Portal -> Ravenholdt for (4)
Play Ravenholdt with a Portal'd Sparring Partner.
Raven Idol -> Effigy
Opponent kills Ravenholdt after I attack with it, Effigy gives me Prophet Velen.
Fireball to face, Velen to face.

"Sorry."

This brawl has some nice moments, but it's similar to Portal brawl with a little more skill an decision making. It's not bad.

I think "a little more skill" than Portal brawl is a tremendous understatement. I'd say that this brawl is the most skill-intensive Hearthstone I've ever played, although it is also on the more luck-intensive end as well.

Not surprising, given that Druid has cards that are meant to be versatile, but this Brawl gives that strength to all classes.

If the Brawl didn't take so long, I'd play it more, but both choosing Spell vs Minion, then choosing the Discover options so many times makes turns take forever.

I have no idea what the strongest class is. I played Rogue to get a quest finished, and it seemed okay since Idols let you Combo almost everything. You tend to fall behind on cards though...

This is actually a super fun brawl, but I agree, the time of the turns is really long. I have been doing quests with it and every class I've played has had it's own quirks, but not been terrible (Shaman, Warlock, Priest). People I play against seem to overvalue just discovering lots of things and forget to try and develop their board early so I've been winning. Rogue seems pretty strong as you always get your combos off.

Also, it's easy to overlook this brawl because of the new announcements, but I'd recommend playing it. If it weren't for the time length of it, it would be really great.

Yeah the great thing about Raven Idol is that you can either try to discover the perfect answer, or find a respectable body if things are even. How can you really make the best discover choice if you don't have any information about the board state or your opponent's hand?

In general I try to discover a few minions first, and switch to discovering spells once I have a reasonable Minion curve or there is a big threat to answer. Are there any special considerations to make for or against certain classes?

Had a best moment today.

I am Warrior vs Rogue.

First draft was Violet Teacher so turn 4 I drop her and then coin and then a Raven Idol to open the board. All that gets cleared on the next turn with some eviscerate and something.
Not too long after he drops his own Violet Teacher and has his side of the board completely full to my side being empty. Seems like he probably turned the tables with my own tactic.
Nope, I drop Wild Pyromancer, Commanding Shout, Bouncing Blade... in that order using all available mana (that is, I had already drafted these cards with a similar strategy in mind).

It was the turning point where I went on to win the game.

Hey, I've got the 5 Brawl quest to do.

I dropped a Lorewalker Cho on T2.  We took turns filling each other's hands with Idols, only discovering minions at first, then taking spells when I could fill his hand to 10 and play them without passing.  He didn't remove it for like 5 turns, which was funny.

I expected to dislike the webspinner brawl like I did the last two times, but this time I actually kinda enjoyed it. The new beasts make it better.

Brawl is choose two cards, you get 15 of each. While flamewaker+arcane missiles didn't lose me a game, I urge you to try what my friend did, which is Angry Chicken+Mark of Ysharj. It's hilarious and actually not bad.

Obviously Innervate/Wild Growth.  I'll have 10 mana on turn 5!
