Overview[edit | edit source]

Each player gets a random deck with random cards, just like Encounter at the Crossroads. At the start of the game, Blessing of the Raven is automatically played, granting all minions one of five effects through an enchantment (Charge, Lifesteal, Poisonous, Stealth or Windfury).

There is also a small chance for "super blessing" granting a minion Mega-Windfury.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

A random assortment of cards makes it harder to play combo-oriented classes like Shaman or Rogue. It's basically impossible for your deck to have any theme, so it's best to try for a tempo-style and play on curve as best as your draws allow.

The random abilities given to minions aren't impactful enough to constantly play around, but can impact how your game progresses (IE: getting lots of Charge effects allows you to play more aggressively). One notable exception is minions like Ravaging Ghoul and Animated Berserker. Be careful of your ordering when playing minions like these, because they can get Poisonous, potentially killing your own minions off.
