Blizzard continues to try different ideas in its Hearthstone (Free) Tavern Brawls, and this week’s The Great Stone of Challenge is definitely an interesting one. The challenge this week is to build a strong deck that has only even-cost spells and minions with odd attack. So, as you can imagine, these restrictions won’t allow you to simply build one of your usual strong decks; instead, you’ll have to figure out how to massage those rules into a decent – if not powerful – deck. If these rules sound familiar, it’s because they are the rules used in the first-ever Challengestone tournament (organized by Kripparian, underflowR, and Tempo Storm). I don’t think it’s an accident that the title has both the words Challenge and Stone in it.
What that means for you is you can find some great ready-made decks here that perfectly fit the tournament rules. Not only that, these decks come from some of the best in the game (including Xixo, StrifeCro, Trump, etc). So, go do some quality netdecking if you are on the lazy side, or spend some time thinking how you could get the best deck out of those rules, or just do a combination of both. The Brawl is live in NA, so go check it out.
