It's like the single-player adventures except multiplayer and you're each playing a boss's deck. I was underwhelmed at first since I was hoping for something more interesting (like with a deck-building aspect), but I warmed up to it after a few games. It's kinda fun.

Nozdormu Nefarian seems way better than Rag.

Only he is Nefarian. And probably yes, although my only loss is using him (Nefarian: 4-1, Rag: 1-0)

I lost my first Rag game, won the second, and have only been Nefarian since.  Is it a "Win with Rag, graduate to Nefarian" type deal?  Seems odd if so; anyone able to contradict that hypothesis?

The best reason to lynch Haddock is the meltdown we get to witness on the wagon runup. I mean, we should totally wagon him every day just for the lulz.

My first game was with Nefarian and my second was with Rag.

This is fun but fairly unbalanced. Nefarian's starting hand seems to be the biggest factor in who wins, unfortunately.

I agree that it seems to be pretty luck based, but in Nefarian's favour. If Nefarian has above average luck, he should just win; Rag gets run over in unfavourable situations.

It's the first Brawl though and only lasts another day or two. I'm interested in seeing what the next one will be.

Gave this a go. It shows promise for me, but Nefarian seems so OP this week. I opened Vaelestraz (6 mana 7/7 that makes your cards cost 3 less) + Blacking Tech + Blackwing Tech (both buffed by my 4 mana 7/7 Chromatic Dragon). Turn 2 I get Charge with Hero power to play on Chromatic Dragon to kill the 6/6 Taunt. Opponent just resigns right there. The game before I was Rag, and I resigned at like Turn 3.

I got Sylvanas from my free pack though. I already had Sylvanas though. Looks like a 400 dust bonus for me then.

Lucky, I got 40 dust in my free pack. Is there a free pack every week for the Brawls or just first week? I thought it would probably be first week, but maybe just maybe it's for longer?

Seems to me, if Rag makes it to the late game he just flat out wins, but that's pretty tough to do, and very sensitive to starting hands...

I don't think this is even true. Wild Magic is a very strong hero power, maybe not quite as strong as Rag's 8 random damage, but pretty close. I find that as Nef, even if I don't get a dream start, then weaving Wild Magic in every turn gives me a lot of value, which can close out the game even if Rag stabilizes.

But my opinion might be distorted by a lot of players I faced making pretty big misplays.

I think once rag stabilizes, it's tough for nefarian unless he can pull enough face damage from spells. But stabilizing is tough.

New Brawl is apparently live on EU and coming to NA soon.

New Brawl rules, copy/pastaed from r/hearthstone:
Quote
Gather your Bananas! Just started on EU servers. Good luck everyone!
You can create your own Deck with cards from your collection
Any class
No special Brawl cards selectable
You get a random Banana every time one of your minions dies
Bananas are spells and the ones datamined on Hearthpwn (see below)
Playing King Mukla has NO effect (besides giving your opponent 2 normal bananas)! :(
Just 1 Tavern Brawl Deck Slot. You need to delete your current Brawl deck to create one with a new class
Thanks to /u/thejdcole for posting in comments:
Bananas can be one of the following 1 mana spells:
Rotten: Deal 1 Damage
Normal: +1/+1
Deviate: Swap a minions attack and health
Big Banana: +2/+2

Best card in format:
Violet Teacher  ;D

Also mana addict.
And when you play swap-banana on it, buffs become permanent.

Violet Teacher  ;D

Also mana addict.

There's a lot of really great cards in this format including anything that creates lots of tokens or generates value from casting either your own spells and your opponent casting spells.

Token generators:
Violet Teacher
Imp Master
Muster
Snake Trap
UtH
Death rattlers (Haunted Creeper and the like)
Force of Nature
Mirror Image
Imp Gang Boss

Spell value (your own):
Mana Wyrm
Antonidas
Flame Walker
Mana Addict
that dude who creates Mechs for spells

Spell value (your opponents):
All Troggs (get value from your opponent casting spells)
Gallywix
Spellbender

I'm looking forward to trying a variety of decks in this format.

Really like this format. I got milled by a Druid my first try against my combo Warrior. Second try I beat a zoolock deck with a tempo Mage with Antonidas. Lots of cool decks that can be build.
