Gift Exchange

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


  • 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.

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.

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

    You get a card back, and you get a card back and you get a card back! EVERY BODY GETS A CARD BACK!
