Wacky Waxy Winter’s Veil Chalkboard

General Information

  • You get a Classic card pack for winning your first game this week.
  • It’s the second time we see this Brawl. Last time we’ve seen it on December 20, 2017.
  • This is a PvP Brawl.
  • Brawl’s format is Wild.
  • It’s a Constructed Brawl – you need to pick a Hero and build your own deck.
  • Each player starts with four 0/4 Large Waxy Gifts on their board. When you destroy your opponent’s Gifts, you will receive a random Legendary minion that costs 3 less mana.
  • On Turn 7, four more Gifts drop on each side of the board. If there aren’t enough space, they fill the rest of the board (or nothing drops if the board is full).
  • Since you start with a few durable minions, anything that buffs them is a good idea. You want to make them harder for your opponent to get rid of. There are also a few ways to just reap the rewards immediately by destroying your opponent’s gifts – e.g. Crazed Alchemist.
  • Because your opponent wants to destroy your gifts, you can always try Silencing or Transforming (e.g. Evolving) them to prevent enemy from getting discounted Legendaries.

    When you destroy one of them ON YOUR TURN, you will receive a random Legendary minion that costs 3 less mana.
    Why the fuck do you write a guide if it’s WRONG!
    The opponent gets the Legendary if the Gift on your turn.

      That’s how it worked in the last week’s Brawl, I didn’t have time to test this one and I assumed that it works the same. Sorry, I already fixed it, but there’s no reason to get so worked up over something so irrelevant.

    I just do not clear the opponent’s board they play 3 weak minions while clearing my side and with any sort of agro deck i have enough to just attack face while they have a 4 legendary minions in their hand they cannot play…Good times 😀

    This is really the perfect time to put out a brawl that’s ideal for evolve shaman.

    I was lucky my opponent concede in first round. I read the guide here and come up with deck of druid buffs. He is a mage and within first round I cast Mark of Lotus and he conceded.

    Had he played on, Power of Wild is waiting in round 2. With RNG help Savage Roar in round 3 he is in deep trouble.

    Not playing again I just want to 3 reward packs.

    This is just going to be yet another Tavern Brawl where 97% of the people run basically the same deck. This time it will be decks that eliminate the “presents” in some way to try to make the opponent instantly concede. So there will be no gameplay strategy, just a race to who gets the silence or evolve card first. If it were up to me, there would be no brawls where you build your own deck. Make people have to think and adapt based on what they get instead of just copying whatever decks are proving to be the strongest.

      I would prefer this too. Just this last week, i would guess most were playing a warlock with similar cards by the end.

    RNG for the win! 3 turns. PW:ShieldX2 on one of the gifts on turn 2, Divine Spirit and Inner Fire on turn 3. Opponent conceded one nanosecond later.
