Battle of Tol Barad

Magical creatures are escaping from Tol Barad! Play a minion and get a random spell of the same cost, but for free!


How it Works

  • Create a custom deck using any class.
  • When a minion is played, a random spell of the same cost will be added to your hand.
    • This spell is reduced to cost 0 - free spells!
    • These spells can be from any class, not always the one you picked.

Tips & Tricks

  • Using cards that play well with spells such as Archmage Antonidas, Gadgetzan Auctioneer, Questing Adventurer, and Flamewaker can really help to overpower your opponent.
  • Minions that cost higher numbers of mana can give you more predictable spell outcomes.
    • Consider a 9-cost spell, of which there are few in the game. There are some very powerful control and survival tools there!
    • This was a lot easier back when the brawl first debuted in 2015!

    The Big Ramp Dragon Druid listed under the "hot decks' worked for me.  My opponent decided to cast the Surrender to Madness... didn't go well for him.

    OoC needs to purge all the old decks from previous years.

    Got Unidentified Contract off a 6 drop, it changed to Assassin’s Contract, cost 6 again, not 0...

      Cards lose enchantments when they transform, so that's not surprising. I think the only exception is corrupt cards.
