Last week I competed in a Hearthstone tournament at the Waypoint Cafe. It was my first HS tournament of any kind in a few years but it feels good get back in it.
This was also Waypoint’s first Fireside Gathering (meaning I couldn’t get the no Warlock hero) and I was glad to take part. For the tournament, I brought these four decks: Highlander Priest, Exodia Mage, Zoo, and Pirate warrior.
Highlander Priest: This is a deck that I used to get one of my highest ranks in ladder. It’s pretty much like other Highlander Priests. Except this one has Hungry Crab to deal with Murloc Paladin, which I did not see in this tournament.
Exodia Mage: I like playing this deck. This is pretty much simple. Stall out the game long enough to draw all you combo pieces to Extended Turn Kill the opponent. It got banned 3 of my four matches. The tournament version I have Acolyte of Pain as one of my draw cards while Coldlight Oracle sometimes takes it’s place in ladder.
Zoo Warlock: This deck does some heavy lifting for me in ladder. It pretty much the basic Zoo for its season except mine has Pince Valanar which is a taunt and lifesteal. My deck still had Keleseth in there as well.
With these decks made it though the tournament without losing a set. My toughest opponent was a JetLaw, lawyer that sported a legend card back.
It’s feels so good to have my first tournament victory in Hearthstone.
