112 - Velen's Chosen: Pilfered Druid & Garrosh Pt. 2
This week on Velen’s Chosen, the crew chit-chat about lots of news at the top of the show, cover a cool deck this week: Druid, discuss Garrosh Hellscream and cover some cool news hitting us just on the dawn of Blizzcon!
Brawl of the Week- Shifter Zerus with some spells
Halloween patch coming for Oct. 24th through Nov. 6. You will get a Treat for logging in each week as well as a special new themed brawl and dual class Arenas.
Every week during the event (two times) you will receive a card pack and an arena ticket for free.
Logins: Oct 24 and Oct 30 = one Old Gods pack & Arena Ticket.
Logins: Oct 31 and Nov 5 = one Frozen Throne pack & Arena Ticket.
During the event: "Dual Class Arena Mode"
Fireside Gatherings now have their own menu
Spells that are canceled by Counterspell will now trigger any “Whenever you cast a spell” and “After you cast a spell” effects.
Hearthstone’s engine has been updated to Unity version 5.6.
Animations for Mimic Pod, Chromaggus, Shifting Shade, Ghastly Conjurer, and Cutpurse should no longer have a long pause.
Mana-cost reductions on cards will now apply after all other mana cost changes, such as the effects from cards like Naga Sea Witch.
Vicious Fledgling can no longer be drafted in the Arena.
The first two picks in an Arena draft are no longer more likely to include synergy-based cards.
If you have an Arena run in progress when Hallow’s End begins on October 24, then it will be retired and you’ll receive the normal rewards for the number of wins you achieved & a free Arena ticket.
In the hours just before the beginning and conclusion of Hallow’s End on October 24 and November 6, it will temporarily be impossible to purchase a new Arena ticket.
Deck of the Week: DerpyTroller’s Pilfered Power
- Mitsuhide’s decklist
- Goal of Deck: Present a board ala zoo style, play pilfered power to get 3 or more mana, play big threats and UI super early and demoralize
- Mulligan: kinda tricky because there are a lot good 1’s and 2’s in deck, so here’s some suggestions: Golakka crawler, Raver,Firefly, Pirates against non-Golakka archetypes. If against flood/aggro builds keep Mark of wilk for a 2 drop if initial mulligan is not good.
- General Game Strat: Play very similarly to older aggro druid but you have more late game than the past. Best case scenario is if you can drop Pilfered Power on T3. Get out bigger threats like Hydra and UI much sooner. If you can get out a T5 UI, then GG!
