Hearthstone F2P Challenge - Day 3 Recap


I updated Hearthstone on my iPad and got a free pack.

In the Arena with Mage

I got lucky my class choices in this arena and was able to pick mage; this makes the grind to level 20 a little easier since I'm not forced to play constructed to level.

I ended up with the best deck I've ever drafted; it felt like I was playing ranked tempo mage with some of the opening hands I had. Unfortunately, the results for this deck were much worse than I was expecting. I found myself quickly in a 1-2 deficit before rebounding to another 6-3 arena.

Is this constructed?

More importantly, this arena run got me level 20 for the mage and that unlocked tavern brawls on the account.

The First Tavern Brawl

Level 20. No big deal.

Nothing to eventful happened during the tavern brawl. I took a break from mage and played some shaman and won the first game. The brawl was "Servant of Yogg-Saron Tryouts," so it really came down to whoever was luckier with their random spells off of their creatures (or in my case, getting 3 Neptulon for 12 extra creatures).

On deck for next time...

I hit my goal of unlocking the tavern brawl and I plan on taking some time off to let the daily quests accumulate and for a new tavern brawl to start. I'm going to look into shaman, warlock, and hunter (maybe a druid, but that's probably too expensive at this point) a bit so I have some backup decks.
