New game mode! And it sounds really really cool.

Sounds fun maybe, depending on what the gimmicks are. I'd pretty much stopped playing Hearthstone entirely, and a lot of that is because I got tired of the existing game modes, so this will bring me back for some time anyway.

I worry that it'll still suffer from the netdecking prisoner's dilemma and tragedy of the commons that ranked mode does, though. Like say some popular streamer builds a deck that does well with the current brawl gimmick, then lots of players will be playing that deck.

It'll only be for a week at worst though. So even if one kind of deck is all that gets played there's always next week.

Any guesses as to possible brawls? I'm thinking these are pretty likely:

30x Unstable Portal decks
30x card of your choice decks
Blitz mode (Perma-Nozdormu)

Probably mana restrictions (Odds only, evens only, only 3+ cards)
Must have x-amount of something (Battecry, Deathrattle, Random effect)
Only certain classes
Class cards only
Minions only

I bet we get a round where we play with a random other class's cards.

Alternate modes won't make the game any less shallow :/

I don't see this as a problem. They are aiming for ease of play, not MtG crazyness. Plus it's still only a year old. It needs time to develop.

spellbender is in the next magic set.  It's a 3 mana 1/4, for blue.

? How does this work considering there's no secrets? Is it a creature with flash?

Bomb, Cannon, and many of the Gunpowder cards can strongly effect gameplay, particularly in a destructive way

Well, we had Spellskite for year :P

Somebody, somewhere will steal Splinter Twin with this and it will be awesome.

Spellskite is too faceup to count.

Stealing twin seems like a nice two for one, especially against the hybridy decks i hear about that have some normal value stuff for when twin gets countered.  Actually two for oning it could help against that stuff.  stealing spell casts, chumping with copies for days.

Yeah, I agree, it's too faceup to count. It is super-powerful tho.

Stealing Twin is game over, as you cannot really do anything until you get read of it, and you need two removal spells to do so, at which points its 4-for-1. Question is how often can that reliably happen. (Nobody is playing Twin in 3 open blue mana without support).

OTOH, it counters Abrupt Decay which only a few cards do.

Opened my first Golden legendary. Termaplugg, which I've already opened 2 of the non-golden variety. Still might use him just for fun.

Or you could get any Legendary you wanted?

Edit: I'd probably still use it a bit to see the animation.

I've already use regular thermaplugg. And I have 2000 dust sitting around and nothing to do with it. The only legends I could need but don't have are baron geddon and Harrison jones, aside from cards I'd want just for fun. And I don't want to craft GvG cards because I can still open then, especially if they're just for fun cards.

If you've already got Boom, Sylvanas, Thalnos, Rag, Alex, Ysera, Sneed, Black Knight and all the good class Legendaries (Cenarius, Antonidas, Grommash, Voljin, Mal'Ganis, Jaraxxus, Van Cleef, Neptulon, Tyrion) then I tip my hat to you. I'd probably make Harrison Jones in that situation (as he's pretty good given how prevalent Warrior decks are right now) or Malygos if you want to make one of those Malygos burn decks or Mukla if you want to play around with Mill decks.

If none of those things appeal to you I'd just save for the next expansion, even though that's probably still 6 months+ away.

I don't have sneeds although it's not essential, especially in an aggro meta. I also don't have neptulon, but shaman has no good decks, and I don't have van cleef. I was considering making malygos for fun. Mulkla just isn't good enough to warrent crafting, even for fun. I even have other legends, like toshley, foe reaper, ghazrilla, iron juggernaut. EDIT: Gazlow, alakir, captain green skin, nozdormu, plus all the adventures Legendaries.

Ones I've got in bold. I just crafted a Grommash few days ago and than opened one in packs a day after that :( #firstworldproblems

Also a lot of others (Many of which are crap, as I never disenchant non-dupes):
Cairne, Al'Akir, Nozdromu, Millhouse, Moggor, Mimiron's Head, The Beast, Iron Juggernaut, Troggzor.

I really need Jones, tho.
Also Antonidas and Geddon.

Yeah, despite all my 'pinions I don't have an amazing Legendary collection:

Boom, Cenarius, Antonidas, Cairne, Al'Akir, Hemet, The Beast, Troggzor, Trade Prince Gallywix, Mogor

I'm currently saving for Sylvanas who seems like the most essential neutral Legendary that I don't have (Boom is THE most essential one imo).

This weeks tavern brawl is a lot more interesting.  It's basically constructed with a twist

Its a big twist I think. Cards like antonidas and Gazlow and flamewaker will go crazy. I have no doubt mage will be the strongest class in this Brawl.
