Cloneball Chalkboard


General Information

  • You get one Standard card pack for winning your first game this week.
  • It’s the tenth time we see this Brawl. Last time we’ve seen it on May 4, 2022.
  • It’s a PvP Brawl.
  • The Brawl’s format is Wild.
  • It’s a random decks Brawl.
  • Your deck is full of random Legendary cards – 4 copies of each (you can roll the same Legendary more than once, resulting in 8, 12 etc. copies of it – although more than 8 is pretty rare).
  • At the start of your first turn, you get an Offensive Play spell in your hand (reducing the cost of the next Legendary you play and all of its copies by 3). Then you get another copy of the spell on Turn 3 and Turn 5. Use them wisely – it’s often worth to wait a bit and discount some big Legendary instead of playing a smaller one right away. It’s also wise to hit the one you have multiple copies of in your hand already. Offensive play also stacks, which means that you can use two copies to e.g. discount an 8 mana Legendary to 2 mana.

    I went with Hunter this time around and got Knuckles and Fjola Lightbane with Mukla, Tyrant of the Vale … which is a pretty lulzy combo 🙂

    my rng here sucks. I really don’t understand how my opponents get pretty unbalance cards like taurisan, barnes or others.

    Hi Evident, I was wondering when the next legendary disenchantment guide might be? Trying to decide which legendaries I should dust to have some saved for when the meta settles down after the latest update. Thanks!

    This tavern brawl has everything I’ve come to expect: extreme randomness, OP cards that can guarantee instant victory, and certainty about whether I have a snowball’s chance in hell of winning based entirely on the opening hand.

    Just played this and got Lorewalker Cho, Nat Pagle, Zerus, and Barnes. I also got Alakir at least.

      I got cho x3. Since I was second, I filled his hand with coins and won by default. If he tried to empty his hand, he just helped me by giving me coins, and then I just refilled his hand.

    Best I’ve got so far: Patches + King Mukla + Lorewalker Cho = turn 2 surrender.

      I believe you’re right, but from what I experienced you usually get a lot of Neutral Legendaries.

      Or Warlock since it uses the Wild card list – early Mal’ganis pretty much wraps things up.

    Of note, you can get malchezar and fatten your deck with 20 more cards!

    This brawl is Tera-bad. Lots of turn one concedes when one player realizes thier deck is unplayable or the other player just drops double ragnaros… I appreciate what they were trying to do here, but let’s cross this one off the list of repeats.

    How do I request muluka’s banana brawl? That one was bananas!

    The card that reduces the card cost by 3, isn’t effected by Loatheb.

    You get 5 of each legendary, not 4. One original + 4 “clones” = 5. Source: Y’shaarj X 5 being a thing

      I might be wrong, actually. If I am, it means you can roll multiple sets of the same legendary. Seems relevant either way. I checked my screenshot again and there was 4 Y’shaarj on my board and 2 in my hand hence my hesitance. Here’s the screenshot. http://imgur.com/WZCmfgw

    Not sure if there is a glitch or if it is possible to get 4 copies of two of the same legendary (e.g. 4 copies + 4 more copies) but I just had 6 copies of Gruul in the same deck.

      Weird, it must be a bug of some sort.

      I think it’s an intended feature, as I just got a 7 rend blackhands, and it seems unlikely that Blizzard would not see a bug like this. There is about a 20% chance of getting two sets of the same legendary, and I assume that Blizzard tested this brawl and would have noticed a bug of that scale.
