The Place for Your Hearthstone Needs!
In the second edition of ‘Card Mania!’, we will be bringing to you the Ancient Brewmaster.
A 5/4 minion with 4 cost, it has opposite stats of the Chillwind Yeti but the real deal about it is to maximise other cards’ values with its Battlecry!
Hailing from the secretive Pandaren Empire, the mighty brewmasters travel the world in search of exotic ales and the finest brewed spirits. These affable warriors rarely seek out danger or trouble, preferring instead to spend their time concocting new and tasty beverages for any brave enough to imbibe them. However, if attacked, the laughing brewmasters bring all of their pandaren agility and ferocity to bear! They even bring their beer to war! They are peerless warriors and world class drinkers all in one! From Wowwiki.
Ancient Brewmaster is most effective when it is used to abuse the Battlecry ability. By returning a minion, and resummoning them, he can reuse the effect to devastating effect! An example is Nightblade (Does three damage to the enemy hero), which makes opponents squirm in grimace. Looking for the great wall? No problem, as the Defender of Argus (Adjacent minions get +1/+1 and Taunt) can easily build a steel wall that is impenetrable. There is many combinations that the Ancient Brewmaster can abuse, including the legendary mass return of minions (Mass summoning of Ancient Brewmasters and Youthful Brewmasters).
To get your dollar’s worth, attack as much as possible with any minion before using the Ancient Brewmaster to heal it back to max health, and resummoning it again! Free Pokemon Centre, anyone? Do note that the Battlecry effect will not affect the Ancient Brewmaster itself, so it can be played when no other friendly minions are on the field without bouncing itself.
The Ancient Brewmaster is good with any cards with a Battlecry as you can always resummon them to proc the effect. Just do not summon the ones that come with a trade-off!
