129 - Velen's Chosen: Know Your Style
This Week the Velen’s Crew takes a week off the lore and deck guides to bring you an extensive news breakdown of off-meta decks, a community supporting soapbox, & a section with Grant helping you identify your style of decks that you like to play.
This week's Brawl: Boss Battle Royale 2 it's a premade deck brawl
As I posted on Twitter earlier this week, choose warlock. Trust me.
Bosses include: Sindragosa (KotFT), Coren Direbrew (BRM), Lady Naz’jar (LoE), Grobbulus (NAX), The White King (Kara), Skelesaurus Hex (LoE), Razorgore the Untamed (BRM), The Curator (Kara), and Professor Putricide (KotFT)
Off Meta Decks are back:
Samerebro from the EU server, who utilized the new “Recruit” Control Warrior deck with an impressive 70% win rate. Try to recruit Grommash by attacking with Woecleaver, then follow up with Sudden Genesis and Inner Rage for 31 damage in a single turn burst!
Romchit on the EU server, who nailed a 67% win rate with an Elemental Shaman.
Hunter deck that is the fifth best deck on the ladder, it combines Secrets and early control to clear the way for some very dangerous beasts, like Highmanes, King Krush, or a Deathstalker Rexxar’s Zombeast.
Hearthstone Wild Open Announced! Until Feb. 18, sign up to compete in your region’s open qualifiers. Qualifiers will take place Feb. 22 through 25 and March 1 through 4.

We had some fun segments where the devs and some influencers talked on a small side stage at the HCT last month.
A few clips of these videos were shared during the championship and people seemed to like them. We recently posted the full videos and no one seems to have linked them yet so here they are....

I wanted to hop in and help clear up some confusion I keep seeing around opening packs. The things I am about to cover have been stated in other threads, but seem to cause some arguments and what not. So, hoping this will help to clear things up. Back in June of last year, we made some changes around the drop rates of Legendary cards in packs. You can find the full blog announcement here, if you have not seen it.
- Year of the Mammoth Bundle ends March 11
“Greetings everyone, each month, we post the top Hearthstone Arena players based on their best wins, per run, in 30 consecutive runs. When an event happens that changes the way Arena is normally played, we adjust the win threshold as necessary.
With the addition of Wildfest and the Wild Arena event during the month of February, we will post an additional Top 100 Arena Standings specifically for Wild Arena that will account for the best wins per run, in 10 consecutive runs. The normal rankings for February’s top Arena players outside of the Wildfest period will account for the best 15 consecutive runs rather than the usual 30. GLHF!” -Jesse Hill
