Battle of the Bans

Pick four cards. Your opponent will BAN one of them, then we'll make you a deck full of the cards remaining.


How it Works

  • Choose four cards that you would like a deck created from.
  • Your opponent gets to ban one of your four cards.
  • A deck is automatically created using your remaining three cards. (10 of each card)

    I went really simple with Leper Gnome, Sandtrooper, Loot Hoarder, and Power Word: Shield.  It worked well enough.

    Draw cards for reload, deathrattle damage for more SMOrc.  If you face someone without removal (or refusing to remove like the Ignite guy I fought) you just build a board and smash their face.

    Super simple list.  The one class card could be replaced with anything else to do the same on other classes.

    I did an old school Druid milldeck with Oracle and Naturalize. The trick was to convince the opponent that something else than Naturalize was dangerous. So i got that squirrel that hides nuts in your deck, hoping the opponent would think that was the point of Oracle.

    Well it worked fine the first opponent, he banned the squirrel and then was milled to hell. Didn't really try any after.

    How is it there are two week old comments in this article?  The brawl didn't occur then.

     

    I get the older brawl comments show up here but, hmmm...

      I'm not seeing that. I'm seeing 3 months, 2 weeks though. Perhaps you missed the 3 months part?

        You're right, it was covered up by the user name.

    I still don't understand Blizzard's insistence on cycling the same fifteen brawls on repeat forever. I get that no one is developing them anymore, but there are so many. There is no reason to repeat brawls more than once a year.

      To be honest there really isn't a huge list of good brawls, and it would seem that they've at least remove some of the less popular ones like raven idols or macaws. At this point its really just a free pack per week, which isn't the worst thing ever.

        I love the Raven Idols brawl.

        More brawls in rotation means more people get something interesting more often. Not every brawl is meant to be for everyone.

    Currently having quite a blast with this deck. It can stave off pressure very well with Plating and Brawls. It also has value generation/win condition.

    I've had good results with the following deck. It seems to confuse opponents; read the deck guide for details.

    A bit late in the week, but if you just got the "Win 5 times in Arena, Battlegrounds, Duels or Tavern Brawl" weekly quest, this is a nice way to complete it.

    My favourite used to be Edwin, Pogo Hopper, counterfeit coin, shadowstep. Or Secret Passage. But unfortunately I dissed Edwin, and I couldn't think of a replacement.

    Possibly my favourite Brawl. Quick to create decks, and the games are usually fun.

    I like how you can extract the essence of an old deck using 4 (more like 3 in the end..) cards.

    Today I faced a spell damage mage, a bunny thief, a discard warlock (ouch), a deck-destroying warlock (nearly got me!), a squirrel druid and a murloc shaman (who both smashed me)....

    Cheap Discover bodies or spells are such fun...yes I miss lackeys!

    Even though it's still RNG based, somehow here I feel like I chose and deserve what I receive, compared with the Brawls where the Tavern mechanics force-feed you with its own RNG mechanics.

    Wonder if the timing was on purpose, considering that they just wild-banned stealer of souls.

    Don't get me wrong, this is a relatively fun and creative brawl, but we could really see some variety in terms of tavern brawls. We had this one 30 weeks ago and 60 weeks ago. Three repeats in little over a year.

      They made the people who usually make new Brawls work on Mercenaries instead, which is why we're seeing a lot of repeats. Let's hope for more new Brawls after Mercenaries releases.

    When are they fixing tavern brawls so they work for quests and achievements? This would be a great way to summon 200 Greyboughs, heal a ton with High Exarch Yrel, etc.

    I use this every time this brawl shows up and my opponents ban the wrong card every time as well:

     

    Pogo-Hopper

    Edwin VanCleef

    Counterfeit Coin

    Shadowstep

     

    They always ban Edwin and then they get like a 1-1, 3-3 and 5-5 Pogohopper on turn 2 and concede.

    First attempt and it works pretty well. Don't craft shit for tavern brawls but if you have the cards i recommend giving it a try
