We have a brand new Hearthstone (Free) Tavern Brawl today, and I’m quite happy about that. I always like to see what new ideas the developers come up with, Miniature Warfare is all about shrinking your minions down all the way, which should make for some very interesting games. Specifically, that pesky Shrinkmeister turned all the Hearthstone cards into toys, and now all the minions are 1/1 and only cost 1 mana. So, this Brawl has two effects: on the one hand you’ll be able to play any minion you want at pretty much any turn, but on the other all the battlecries and spells still work as designed, which means you can get some crazy battlecry effects for only 1 mana.
As you can imagine, you need to load up your deck with cheap (or expensive) buffs to get those minions over the 1/1 base stats. At the same time, make sure to pick minions with the craziest battlecries that either buff minions, spawn weapons/minions, and so on. For instance, if you play Arch-Thief Rafaam (with a Brann Bronzebeard already on the board for good measure), you’ll get to choose one of the three artifacts on turn one or two. The spells have their original abilities and cost, but you’ll be able to play them early on if you can ramp quickly. And this is one idea, you could do similar crazy stuff. The Brawl is live in NA, so go check it out.
