Gift Exchange

Great Father is dropping crates on the battlefield! Get a gift each time you smash your opponent's crate... or your own!


Trivia

  • Blizzard didn't bring this brawl back during the 2016 holiday season, leading to community outage.
  • The brawl came back in February 2017 as a re-release post-2016 holidays.
  • This is the first brawl that rewarded a card back as the reward.
  • Completing this brawl gives you a Classic Pack if you already have the card back.


How it Works

  • Build a custom deck using cards from your own collection.
  • At the start of your turn, provided there is not a Winter's Veil Gift on your side of the field, Greatfather Winter will drop one off.
  • Destroying a Gift will give you a Stolen Winter's Veil Gift.
  • Stolen Winter's Veil Gift allows you to Discover a card from the class of the player the originating Gift minion came from.
    • You are only able to receive cards that initially cost at least 5 mana.
    • The cost of the card is reduced by 5 mana.
    • You are unable to Discover weapons.
  • You have a chance of seeing Hardpacked Snowballs in the Discover mechanic.

Holiday Fun

  • Cards that swap Health and Attack can let you obtain gifts very early. See Crazed Alchemist.
  • If you wipe the board out with a Doomsayer, you could end up with two Stolen Gifts!
  • Buffing up your gift can make it an early threat. Priests have an easy time keeping gifts alive with their heals and can buff it easily with their kit.

    A really aggressive deck is what I recommend. I was facing off against Open the Waygate Mage, and what often happened was that I killed his present, get a Firelands Portal, then used it to fire at my own present

    I already have the card back, so it gave me a pack (popped up after winning)....except it's nowhere to be found :-(

    I get a card back instead of a pack? I hate to be like Complainy McReddit, but damn. Wednesday is Free Pack Day, it's not much, but... I want my pack!

        I ask because this was my first reaction: I should just hit auto-fill and see what happens. Since you've already done it, I am curious on the results!

          His comment is a year old so he probably does not remember.

    What was it giving you if you already had the Winter Veil Treat Card Back?
