Brawl of the week: A Mammoth of a New Year

This week’s Tavern Brawl is another cooperative battle. You and a partner must “decorate” the tavern. Of course there will be things to get in your way.

How Mammoth will this New Year be?

You might recognize the “Party Crashers” from last week’s brawl to “decorate” Stormwind.

I’m not sure if everyone gets the same two heroes, but my match was Valeera vs Malfurion. Your decks contain a mix of random minions, class cards, and a few “special cards”.

Things get crazy, fast.

Your hero power actually changes in the second phase of the brawl.

Once you finish “decorating”, a Pinata is dropped in. We are told there is candy inside. I’m not convinced. (how cool would it have been if we got a coupon for a candy bar?)

The Pinata switches side to opposite of the hero attacking.

There are some shenanigans.

Sweet, sweet shenanigans.

Finally, the Pinata goes down.

Glorious destruction.

Look, another free pack!

A third free “mystery” pack!

I’m guessing we probably won’t see this battle again, at least not under the same name. It looks like this was a one-time deal for the coming new Hearthstone year.

So get in there and get your free pack. This is the third new (probably Un’Goro) pack we have got from brawls, if you have played the last 2 weeks. (and today)

Gotta gotta get gold!

There was also a 50 gold bonus for logging on, which I found to be a little odd, but hey, it’s free gold!

See you next week!

    Interesting battle. Phase one needs to balance board control, resource generation and decoration spend. Phase 2 balances control, healing and burst damage. I got very lucky and played a Gallywix just at the right time for us to get double usage out of a couple of cheap removals and heals.

      I might have got lucky with decent partners. Did it once on each of my accounts. The second time was later in the day, so it’s possible I got paired up with someone who had at least one crack at it. I had no problem with getting cards as both matches, my opponent had a corrupted Nat Pagle. At one point I had 10 cards and couldnt add any more. The decoration thing was kind of cool because it actually used whatever mana you had left and put out decorations accordingly. So if you had 4 mana, it put out 4, if you had 10 mana, it put out 10, and so forth. I fully expecting this to be a “one and done” as is. They may choose to use it again for something else, but no doubt they will make tweaks to it.
