Overview[edit | edit source]

This Brawl sees all players doing battle as the rogue hero Valeera, with randomized decks consisting entirely of spells from any class. Whenever a spell is cast, a random minion of the same mana cost is summoned for the player.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The minions summoned by the brawl may belong to any class, regardless of the class of the spell cast.
  • The brawl summons each minion before the spell takes effect. Because of this:
    • A minion will be summoned even if the spell was Countered.
    • The spell will hit the new minion if it is in the area of effect of the spell.
Example: Twisting Nether will cause the brawl to summon an 8 mana minion, then the spell will destroy it.
  • The decks consist of only spells between 1 to 8 mana.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

A highly random Brawl without the option to choose either the player's deck or class, success depends upon making the most of the options presented to you, and being able to respond to the unpredictable results of the random summoning that follows each spell.

The doubled value of each card played means this Brawl tends to ramp up pretty quickly, although the limited mana cost means it is mostly with a swarm of lower cost minions rather than larger threats. As a result AoE removal can be very powerful, and should be used wisely. Removal aside, the large number of minions means the player who is able to take control of the board early on often wins the match. Mulliganing for low-cost cards is strongly advised.
