Episode 49: Hearthstone II


Scoring high on the arena and BOK arena tests, the MVP of the episode.

Bastards of Kingsgrave starts off the new year with a return to the growing gaming phenomenon that is Hearthstone, created by Blizzard. We review and rate the new expansion Goblins vs Gnomes. We also go explore arena strategy, covering terminology like Mana Curve, the Vanilla Test. and Quadrant Theory in the Hearthstone Arena context. We do a full Arena draft (Paladin) using these principles. To appease the requests from  the last episode, we do a “BOK Arena” draft in the aftershow, applying the famous snakes and scorpions game to Hearthstone.

Notes: Later this week, there will be a Youtube link here to a playthrough of the drafted Arena  deck, as well as our round robin play with the themed decks. We discover the true power  of Violet Teacher.
