This week's Tavern Brawl allows players to dive in with pre-made decks featuring cards from The Witchwood. This is a great opportunity for players to experience cards they may not own and get a feel for how new mechanics and interactions work.

For players who have already obtained this card back from the March 2018 Ranked Play rewards, winning your first game will grant you a Classic Hearthstone pack.

Feb 27 Shaman 2/20 Brawl Haven't played the Shaman hero this brawl, but have played against them a bunch. Seems like pretty weak sauce, so far. Shrine dies easy, and with overload, the opponent basically ends up sitting out every other turn, seems like. Don't think I've been beaten by one yet. Anyone picking up any consistent wins with Shaman?Streak5 Feb 27
Feb 25 Prophet Velen = quadruple damage? For some reason Prophet Velen seems to do both its double healing AND double damage when you heal an enemy while your Shrine's up, resulting in quadruple damage (no, I didn't have Clockwork Automaton or anything else, nor did my opponent have something that messes with healing or damage). Seems like first the healing gets doubled, then gets converted to damage, then gets doubled again because "the damage hasn't been doubled yet, only the healing". Don't know if it only does this with Hero Power or also Spells though: I was dominated the entire game so I had to waste my Spells early to even get to 7 mana in the first place.Zerfinity11 Feb 25
Feb 25 Paladin vs Paladin, Feb20 brawl Twice I have entered a Tavern Brawl as a Pally, only to have the game concluded on the first round. Essentially, a player (first time is was my opponent, the second time it was me) played a card that dealt damage to their own hero, which triggered this cascade of damage going back and forth, and both of us lost. Anyone else run into this? Seems a cheesy way to set a game up.Absolom12 Feb 25
Feb 25 RiP Priests This is not your brawl if you play Priests!Dallua1 Feb 25
Feb 24 Hunter has too few early game cards Sure, the shrine is very powerful but you won't even be able to use it if the opponent overwhelms you in the first 4 turns because you just don't have anything to play. The tempo is simply too slow compared to other classes.Taedus9 Feb 24
Feb 24 Great Game? This brawl is pretty boring. Lost 2 to RNG and just conceded to get my pack. I would have conceded all 3 games if I knew how boring it gets.Draigo2 Feb 24
Feb 24 Decklists suck Let the state of these decklists speak to the designers abilities,dindu9110 Feb 24
Feb 24 Paladin vs Paladin? Design flaw? https://youtu.be/ZTQ0HzKPRQQ https://youtu.be/L3msc8XdMhQAtagi0 Feb 24
Feb 24 Malacrass is what F-Shaman should've been... What a fun deck. It is really criminally slept on as I barely see anyone play it, but it's pretty overpowered and immensely fun. Really makes me sad how for this troll they can make such a genius idea but for the entire FT release the best they could come up with was a laughably slow 4/4 that generates good value maybe on turn 10 (when you are dead). Big wag of the finger, Blizzard! But it's not too late to try it again like you did with Discolock. Foreshadowing?LiveWire0 Feb 24
Feb 23 Rogue Surprisingly Dominant 2/20 Brawl After ~60 games in this brawl, I feel comfortable saying that Rogue has emerged as the surprise OP dominant force, behind mage. A shrine that casts all spells twice is extremely powerful. That makes it easy, too easy in my opinion, for rogues to remove the opponent's shrine and minions. The double casting also allows rogues to easily buff their own minion, as well as fill their own board, thanks to Ambusher. Unlike with other heroes, such as Paladin, killing the rogues' shrine doesn't really cripple them. Rogues have so many ridiculously low-cost spells, they just fill their hand with them until the shrine reactivates, then unleash a wave of removals and damage that is nearly impossible to recover from. Minion-based heroes seem to have very little chance against rogues. The only one I've consistently had success with is Mage, because with the right combo in hand, it can OTK.Streak10 Feb 23
Feb 22 Warrior Win? Has anybody managed to have Warrior win against anything other than Warrior this time around? Was there any strat involved or just a 1/100 mulligan?Kwil12 Feb 22
Feb 22 Jeklik Jeklik is destroying it this round. Thought I would never play this class. but what a fun deckEATMOREKITTY9 Feb 22
Feb 22 Did you even tried the Brawl ? I mean you know you can't play Pally vs Pally right ? They kill each other at the first face dmg taken when the shrine is up... well played sir, well played...PaulBoutique4 Feb 22
Feb 21 Malacrass Zero to Hero Last week he wasn't that great, this week he's an OTK monster. Took a bit to get the hang of, but won my last 3 in a row with him.Maelstrom4 Feb 21

Feb 20 WTF Okay, can somebody please tell an old fart what the eff RNG stands forEATMOREKITTY4 Feb 20
Feb 20 Mage 2/20 Brawl With Malygos and the zero-cost spells, this could be extremely powerful, if you ever got the chance to use the combo. But, four games in, I haven't gotten anywhere close yet. Dying way too early to the shrines that continuously buff or lower the cost of minions. Learning curve on the mage feels pretty steep. Obviously, the key is controlling the board with freezes and strategic minion trades until you have enough spells and spell multipliers to OTK. I just haven't figured out how to do it yet. Anybody mastered this one?Streak2 Feb 20

Feb 17 Welcome to mage brawl Where I played 3 matches and all 3 were mages. All three had ridiculous easy combos. Then summoned ragnaros. I wonder if there is a mode that would have given hint to how bad this brawl would be......Spudnuts10 Feb 17

Feb 15 Why is the hunter in tavern brawl nerfed? It's Zul'jin with Rexxar's hero power, just a different image? Why can't I freely target with this hero power?Restomagus7 Feb 15
Feb 14 i like this brawl I don't play brawl that much but this brawl I do like. Why I like it:well its fun to figure out the best strategy and how to play for every class and you don't have to make a deck for it. Sure some classes are better then others but there is still the challenge to try your best and find the correct strategy. Not something I would play for hours but its fun to try for a bit.Rassy3 Feb 14
Feb 14 Love is in the Air! Back in January 2016 you awarded a Love is in the Air Card Back for hitting Rank 20. I am of course referring to the super cute sparkly pink heart card back. It broke my heart when I took a break from the game, only to return and discover I missed out on it :( I would like to suggest and request you strongly consider a Valentines Day Tavern Brawl for February that awards the same Love is in the Air card back previously offered. Before you shoot down the idea, I would like to remind you that in December 2016 you offered the Winter Veil Wreath card back for a 2nd time in Hearthstone history, as a reward in the Tavern Brawl. It is possible you already have a Valentines Day Tavern Brawl planned for this year. Please consider rewarding the card back again for those who missed this holiday themed back in the past. Please and Thank You! Have a nice day!! <3 <3 <3 <3Sarah19 Feb 14
Feb 14 This weeks brawl. Where can I find explanation of this weeks brawl,the rules and conditions and such. Its not ingame nor on this forum.Rassy3 Feb 14
Feb 14 Change Brawl Rewards Blizzard should allow us to choose which card pack we receive for tavern brawl. Granted, it doesn't have to be a current expansion pack, but it should be something other than the basic pack. Maybe a wild set... I don't know. I really don't think this will upset any balance or game play. This is coming from the someone with all the basic cards, but missing a handful in older sets. Worst case, I save up 50 brawls worth of Lich King packs and get 2 guaranteed legendaries. By then it will be in wild.Kang4 Feb 14
Feb 13 This brawl has to be a stupid joke I'm seriously concerned what this game has come to. This isn't even the regular RNG, where you try and fight the odds with the cards in your hand and try to maximize your chances. No. This is just pure cancer. Pat the content team on the back, because you are losing more and more people with thisDimbata4 Feb 13
Feb 13 Season of Rastakhan Regular tavern brawls reward a classic pack for the first win. Assuming RNG, average two games. The announcement for next week’s brawl says you get a special quest each week. Play 3 brawls and get a Rastakhan pack. This is being touted as a cool event benefit but as far as I can tell, a pack for 3 games is worse than a pack for one win.ComputerNut4 Feb 13
Feb 11 Players taking the Yogg brawl too seriously You would think foil hero players would understand more than anyone it's a pure RNG spam fest for fun, but they seem to be the ones who take the longest turns and spam le'oops at the end when RNjesus throws them a bone. Talk about hilarious. ROFL. :Dlockwoodx3 Feb 11
Feb 11 Turn 1 Call of the Wild worst brawlRopemaster4 Feb 11
Feb 11 GARBAGE BRAWL Just stop trying, FIRE YOUR WHOLE TEAMNeverLucky0 Feb 11
Feb 10 When RNG goes both right and wrong... I had to share this. It was like the my 4th turn or so. First minion I summoned caused "Embrace the Shadow" to pop. It turns all healing effects into damage. Second minion I summoned popped "Tree of Life". Which has "restore all characters to full Health". Which means I nuked everything. Both myself and my opponent, and our minions. That. Was. Amazing.Cheveyo1 Feb 10
Feb 10 Flip a Coin that's essentially what this tavern brawl is. A time consuming and flashy flip a coin generator. So why exactly do we need to play this instead of just flipping a coin for our pack?Reinhardt4 Feb 10
Feb 9 Brawl #200 coming soon We are 10 weeks away!! Should we expect some cool special 200# brawl?? It would be awesome! I've play all of them so far, I love when you surprise us with new unexpected brawls!sebasanchez4 Feb 9

I'll keep adding them as I have more. MONSTER HUNT Co-op or VS game play using the heroes from the Monster Hunt mode. Co-op would be working together to destroy bosses (would likely have to function like the other co-op brawls where the boss trades sides of the board each round) VS could simply be choose a Monster Hunter and battle eachother. Your deck could still grow after each win like Monster Hunt mode. You will only be matched against players with the same number of wins as you. MONSTER HUNT 2 Choose a Hunter or a Boss Monster. One player is a Hunter, the other a Monster(matchups will only be Hunter vs Boss). Again, the decks could grow with wins and match ups will be based on your current run rank. You would see your current run rank rating and your overall # of wins on the brawl launch page. TIME WARP Everyone starts with 1x Time Warp card in their hand and a copy of Temporus in their deck. Choose your other 28 cards. DYING LIGHT Both players start with a Darkness on their side of the board and 3 candles in their deck. Cannot add another Darkness to your own deck if it is a buildable deck. Found this same one already in the suggestions: THE DARKNESS AWAITS https://us.battle.net/forums/en/hearthstone/topic/20763606208 THE LORE WALKER Lore Walker Cho power applies all game. You get 10 spells and 20 minions(could be rng or buildable). THE SCOURGE Choose your Hero, start as the Frozen Throne version of your character (you get the 5 armor, but lose any other battlecries). You cannot add another playable character to your deck if it is a buildable deck. THE DUAL DUEL Choose two classes and 20 cards from each class. Your Hero portrait is split in two with a hero power on each side. Possible to increase hand size and draw 2 cards each rnd to accomodate increased deck size. ACROSS THE CLASSES Choose a class Choose a standard weapon from across the classes Choose one: Quest or playable Hero from across the classes (I know your starting Hero and playable Hero might be different, but hey, I've seen many a Mind Vision Priest change form before) Choose 9 standard spells from across the classes. Only 1 copy of each spell Choose 19 minions from across the classes. Only 1 copy of each minion BEAT THE CLOCK A dormant, bomb/void sits in the center of each players board. If the match is not won before the bombs count down, both players lose. This would be some type of co-op play. BEAT THE CLOCK2 (aka HOT POTATO) A single bomb sits on the curent players board. It would function like Nozdormu, you get 15 seconds to complete your turn. If you do not complete your turn, the bomb explodes for 5 damage to you and your minions and regenerates on the other players side, else it just trades sides. ( you cannot have more than 6 minions on your side) TURNCOATS Every time you kill an opponents minion, instead of dying, it trades board sides and returns to full health. It dies if there is not room. If your own minion dies on your turn, it does not trade sides. Choose 10 spells and 20 Minions.Llyrrum4 Feb 8

Feb 5 Didn't Blizzard Learn from the last time This Week Brawl is The Void Singularlity. It has a number of Banned cards however you can get around the ban. Didn't Blizzard learn from the last time you could do this? Just faced a Rogue that has Devilsaur Eggs in his deck a Banned card.Shuyin29 Feb 5
Feb 5 Last brawl spot on That last brawl exemplified what makes this game fun - the randomness! I had so much fun with the silliness. One of my favourite brawls. I also really have fun with the one where you cast a spell and a random minion with the same mana cost appears. When I play a tavern brawl, I want to just click a button and have a fun game. I don't want to have to worry about making a deck. That is for competitive games.Laurasia2 Feb 5
