A Peek to the Past – Tavern Brawl

This week’s Tavern Brawl is A Peek to the Past! This is a deck building Tavern Brawl, but thankfully for you F2P players you only need Basic and Classic cards plus Epics and Legendaries are not allowed! This is similar (you can use Rares in this Brawl, and Pauper HS includes all sets) to the for fun format Pauper (from MTG), which limits you to only Basic and Common cards. There’s a subreddit you can check out if you’re interested: PauperHS.

    I quite like this brawl, it’s not full of random nonsense and everyone is on a even footing – Zoolock is still strong of course. This is what I’ve been using with some degree of success.

    For when inner fire priest goes nuts, an old fashion ramp druid isn’t bad. I’ve also made a miracle rogue list that’s a lot of fun to play xD

    I tried the Warrior deck and sucked hard with it (Warrior isn’t my best class admittedly) … I just wasn’t getting enough card draw and got facerolled by Warlock Zoo and cheap combo Rogue decks,

    Switched to a basic Warlock Zoo and won straight away.

    Why power overwhelming is not in the list?

      It was moved to the Hall of Fame and is no longer part of the Classic set.

    Now we just need a brawl where you can only use Epics and Legendaries.
