General Information

  • Earn a Standard card pack for your first win in this Brawl.
  • This is the fourth time we see this Brawl. Last time we’ve seen it on August 11, 2021.
  • It’s a PvP Brawl.
  • Brawl’s format is Wild.
  • It’s a random decks Brawl. Just pick a class and press play.
  • Every time you play a minion, it gets a random minion’s Deathrattle. As in ANY minion’s Deathrattle – you can play a 1-drop and get, for example, Tirion Fordring‘s Deathrattle.
  • It’s one of the “RNG” Brawls, where winning or losing will depend not so much on your strategy (since you really can’t plan ahead), but on your luck. Given that Deathrattles range from useless (or even harmful) to incredibly strong, sometimes you will seal the game after playing your first 2-3 minions, other times you won’t get anything decent throughout the entire match.
  • My only advice would be to mulligan aggressively for cheap minions, spells are much worse (because they don’t gain any benefits in this Brawl) and you want a tempo advantage to snowball with (hopefully good) Deathrattles.

    Is it a bug or a feature that you can no longer complete quests while playing tavern brawl?

    If you get silence in your opening hand, keep it.

    Silence is priceless in this matchup.

    ugh, does it have to show every deathrattles twice everytime a minion killed?
    I had to wait a full 1 minute just to wait on that when 6 minions killed in the same time.

      It seems pretty clear that devs focus right now is on Battlegrounds an not much else … this ‘double showing’ is just another bug in a series of bugs that happened lately.

      At least there was a reward this week. 😉

        Good point, I expect them to take away the reward in the near future. No more xp from quests in tavern brawl, so why should they give any reward?

        I only play it once a week mostly, I don’t know how much more it is played by other players though. When they remove the reward, I expect it to die out.
