The decks you need to win the Blood Magic Standard Hearthstone Tavern Brawl

Blood! Blood! Blood! No, it’s not G’huun. It’s the Hearthstone Blood Magic Standard Tavern Brawl. Wild blood is no good this week. Only Standard blood will satiate our Hearthstone masters, as this week’s Brawl sticks with the Standard card set.

Tavern Brawl basics

  • Name: Blood Magic – Standard
  • Description: How much are you willing to sacrifice for power? All your spells will cost health instead of mana!
  • Fun level: 7/10
  • Difficulty: 8/10
  • Replayability: 5/10
  • Format: Standard
  • Type: PVP
  • Deck: Constructed
  • Rewards: 1 pack

We’ve seen this Brawl a few times before: it’s a slight tweak to the Blood Magic Brawl last seen in the summer of 2018, which allowed Wild cards. More recent incarnations added “standard” to the name and limited cards to the current Standard pool.

The Blood Magic Brawl is a Constructed Brawl and as usual with such Brawls, the size of your card collection can have a big impact on your success. But there are still budget decks you can win with – and we’ll suggest some good options later.

How to win Blood Magic Standard Tavern Brawl

Since spells cost health instead of mana for this Brawl, you can cast several powerful spells immediately on turn one. Of course, it’ll hurt your life total so you have to strike a balance between staying alive and casting spells to either build your board or deal damage to your opponent and their minions.

The most important thing you’ll need to win this Brawl is a good deck. In Constructed Brawls, players discover the most powerful lists very quickly, which leads to the Brawl falling into a meta structure like we see on the Ladder.

Here are some winning decks to try out:

Decks from the 2020 iteration of the Brawl

2022 update: Since the Standard set has not rotated, all of these still work just as well for this year’s Brawl.

Conjurer Mage

  • Deck Code: 
  • I’m rather proud of this home-grown Conjurer Mage I made. You want to mulligan for Power of Creation and Conjurer’s Calling. Look for Deep Freeze if you’re facing a Demon Hunter

Burn Mage

  • Deck Code:
  • Throw everything you can at their face and burn them down before you die.

Blur Demon Hunter 

  • Deck Code:
  • Update for 3/16/2022 – This alternate deck code is not working. Alternate Deck Code:
  • Both decks abuse Blur, which prevents you from taking damage from any other spells you cast that turn. Once you’re protected, load up on damage like Twin Slice, Chaos Strike, and Inner Demon.

Wide Druid

  • Deck Code:
  • Guardian Animals once or twice, depending on how risk-averse you are. Buff with Survival of the Fittest. Druid has access to more healing than Mage with cards like Overflow.

Boar OTK Druid

  • Deck Code:
  • Play your Stonetusk Boars and buff them with Mark of Nature and copy them with Germination, and Savage Roar for a massive damage burst.

Libram Paladin

  • Deck Code:
    • Use Commencement, or Duel to get your Judious Juror on the board. Proceed to buff the Juror and take the victory.
  • Alternate Deck Code:
    • This is another version of LIbram Paladin with more minions. Mulligan hard for Libram of Hope.

More Blood Magic Standard lists

I’m rather proud of myself for coming up with a deck on my own that went 3-0. Deck building is not usually my strongest skill in Hearthstone. Hopefully, one of these decks listed here should get you the W. Keep checking Hearthstone Top Decks, because there are more Tavern Brawl decks being added by the hour. If you find another great list, share it with us in the comments.

Overall, this is an interesting Brawl. You get some powerful turn one plays and it’s not unusual for the games to end before turn five, so if you need gold for more Scholomance Academy packs, this is a good week to farm. Good luck getting this week’s Year of the Phoenix pack.
