I think it is fairly fun. The upside is that there's not enough time for dominant decks to really get distributed and entrenched because there are so many possibilities. The downside is that with no curve draw is almost the only determining factor. So far games are ending quickly and decisively; not seeing any Huntards, lol. Lots of room for creativity mitigated by the fact that heavy bodies are practically requisite. This is one of those ideas that had to be tried and Brawl was the perfect venue. Bravo, Blizzard.

Heh, had an entertaining moment with my first game. I was Druid against a Mage. Early on I played Nefarian and got Echo of Medivh. I got Echo of Medivh to procure on Nefarian and the 3 charging Treants from Force or Nature. Did you know they're 1 mana? I had Savage Roar too so it was a easy to get lethal.

Yeah this mode is broken, but it's cool to explore just how broken it is. There might be a case for adding Questing Adventurer or something. And Enhance'o Mechano has good target to buff. Of course having Alex is a major boon.

Edit: Second game I killed both my Stalagg and my Feugen with Poison Seeds, getting 2 Thads while killing Nefarian.

My MVP so far is Annoyotron.

I think the key to this one is having small things that are useful against big things, so you can use all 10 mana as often as possible.

Yeah that was my thinking as well. Also, 5 mana stuff is good because you can play two of them in the same turn (Faceless Manipulator is pretty awesome I think). This is also a mode where there is no time to build a draw engine to enable a big multi-card combo because you'll probably be dead by then.

Also,  you should almost always mulligan for one creature wipe/contain first hand.

I went second in my first game:

Opponent T1: Gah'zrilla, Arcane Shot on Gah'zrilla
My T1: Something
Opponent T2: Elven Archer on Gah'zrilla (24), Kill Command  (5), Hero Power (2).

Unfortunately in all my starting cards there was nothing I could do in a single turn to prevent that.

Your opponent shouldn't have even Arcane Shotted first turn as he gave you the opportunity to BGH it, but that's besides the point.

I think almost every class has a possible turn 2 win if you don't have some form of removal or other way to stall (Ice Block, Sludge Belcher, etc).

Though Gahzrilla can do it with Hunter, Malygos can do it in any other class I believe. There's also T1 Onyxia T2 Savage Roar/Bloodlust combos. T1 Alexstraza T2 Anything that can do 15 7 damage. Divine Spirit + Inner Fire combos with Priest, etc.

I suspect some class might even be able to get a T1 win with just the coin/extra card in this format. Maybe with Frothing Berserkers, unsure?

Kripp had some bad times against Miracle decks last night.  On his last game of the stream his opponent opened Chromaggus, PW Shield, PW Shield / Velen's, Faceless, PW Shield...

Did anyone try a deck of nothing but 5 drops? seems like it would be a good way to use mana efficiently.

Also you probably are an expert if you buy two bureaucrats early.

Not all 5 drops, but I played it as Druid who has some of the best 5 drops, along with Loatheb, Stalagg + Feugen, and some other stuff I guess

I took a look at the scenic underbelly of Hearthstone that is the official forum, and there's a chance there was an error somewhere. The news feed has talk of "too many portals", perhaps suggesting that this was supposed to be an Unstable Portal Brawl.

Edit: Try on mobile if you can. There are claims it's supposed to be 30 Unstable Portals. A predictable Brawl idea sure, but no reason not to do it.

Yeah, it's apparently a bug, but if you do the bugged Brawl you can get a free deck this week.

I played a game of Nef vs. Rag, and only now that I closed the game and restarted it is the game updating. I was lucky to get Nefarian so naturally I won and now won't be demoralized if I have a big losing streak for the real Brawl.

Edit: I won my first Unstable Portal game with a real Jackpot of a card for this format, Troggzor.

I'm really enjoying today's brawl.  I forget what died, but whatever it was it turned into Baron Rivendare.  It was hilarious.

Really?  I honestly found it kind of boring.  My first thought was to go for higher-cost minions, but I ended up playing against a normally constructed deck and lost.  So I just built a normal Mage deck with only a few minions.  The shtick of the brawl didn't come up very much.

I'm playing high cost minions, minions with battlecries (like bomb lobber) and sticky guys that become even more sticky (shredder, harvest golem, etc).  2 stormwind champions help a lot because you always have a board.  Undertaker is also kinda cute.

I played a Mage deck with a lot of silences, those Taunt +1/+1 for each enemy Deathrattle minions, Undertakers, Baron Rivendare, Polymorph and a bunch of cards that had other Deathrattles and Unstable Portals which actually sucked because their minion doesn't have the Deathrattle but I won the game where I realized that.
