Shack Reels: Hearthstone Tavern Brawl - Grand Tournament first look

Shacknews wasted no time jumping into Hearthstone's latest Tavern Brawl, with Ozzie jumping into the role of Medivh. Can he come back from early deficit? Watch some of the new Grand Tournament cards in action and find out.


As promised, this week's Tavern Brawl for Hearthstone includes many of the new Grand Tournament cards that are set to debut this coming Monday.

How do they affect the overall meta? Which cards rule the roost and which are going to need some heavy balance? It's obviously too early to tell, but what we at Shacknews can do is help add to the discussion by posting this writer's very first Tavern Brawl game from earlier this morning.

Watch as Medivh introduces his Mage cards against Alleria's Hunter cards... and proceed to fall behind quite badly. But how much does the Inspire effect actually factor in to the overall game? Find out by watching the full video below and see if Medivh can make a comeback.

Looking for more on the Hearthstone Grand Tournament expansion? Shacknews has been breaking down the expansion's new cards, so be sure to catch up with our Inspired series.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
