    I've been having great fun with the following deck for the Spellbook Duel brawl:

    1x (1) Patches the Pirate
    1x (2) Corrupting Mist
    1x (2) Gnomeferatu
    1x (2) Novice Engineer
    1x (2) Youthful Brewmaster
    1x (3) Brann Bronzebeard
    1x (3) Deathlord
    1x (4) Blastcrystal Potion
    1x (6) Reno Jackson
    1x (8) Twisting Nether
    AAEBAf0GCpwCnwPbBv4NwxaFF5G8Av2/Ao/HAq7NAgAA

    Sure it's not meta it anything (I assume Druid is), but Gnomferatu discarding their entire deck is fun. For some reason when their deck is down to three cards, they get no option to discover, and can perform no action that turn.

    Shamelessly taken from Reddit .

    I'm sure this will be meta, I was playing a variant and it seems pretty oppressive, your version looks even better than the one I was using.

    Well, my initial thought was that Jade Idol and their package would be superior, but I never fought against it, so I'm just guessing.

    shite brawl, played hunter and rexxared through it with a vicious felgling with charge, that got double buffed by 2 razormaws

    The cheesy shaman almost beat me with his devolves, evolves and antique healbot every turn.

    I put together a N'Zoth Mill Rogue, well without much of the mill really lol, and totally trashed this Jade Druid. I was at 2 health for the longest time. Didn't give a sh%t about infinite jades. If I didn't discover N'Zoth I'd just drop another Deathlord or Sludge Belcher. If I don't get a minion I stall with whatever taunts remain on board and stall with Sap or Vanish. Infinite N'Zoths trump Infinite Jades since you stall & slowly pick away at the druid's face.

    If you want an easy aggressive zoo deck for those who have small cheap collections here is an amusing take on zoo for this brawl.

    Power Overwhelming
    Voidwalker
    Demonfire
    Demonfuse
    Bloodfury Potion
    Sense Demons
    Blastcrystal Potion
    Bane of Doom
    Doomguard
    Siphon Soul

    Really helped for my alt account.

    Gnomelock is oppressive vs combo decks, but gets eviscerated by aggro

    You'll usually get your ass handed to you by turn 6 or so, seeing as aggro is basically guaranteed to curve out well, and they won't care that you mill two or three of their cards because nothing is super pivotal.

    Mech rogue, zoo lock and aggro hunter demolish it.

    Cancerous. I had someone beat at 5 hp and then I couldn't act at all, so I rebooted the game thinking I had issues... Guess how that went.

    I already had my win for the pack and kept playing for fun, played that game for 20+ Mins and would have felt quite cheated, if I considered myself not the victor.

    Still, probably not going to play the brawl anymore after that though, I don't have a problem with gnomeferatu but if it locks you into not being able to act at all with victory in reach that's quite shit.
    Come forth coward and answer for your crimes!!

    I've made a 9 spell + yogg mage deck. I haven't lost a match yet (4-0) and the chaos of multiple yoggs is always fun.

    I faced someone using Keleseth + Brann + Shadowstep combo, poor guy didn't know that you never actually draw minions from your deck. He also had Southsea Captain and Patches, the moment he summoned Patches he was only a 2/2 despite playing Keleseth like 5 times. This is a good brawl to do my dailies as I could play a handbuff/aggro paladin and win some games. I also played some secet mage with Flamewaker which is just insane.

    This Tavern Brawl has produced some of the worst BM and anger inducement I've ever seen in Hearthstone. People can't take losing or even winning, they wanna BM the whole game then instantly friend you, tell you you're a braindead low life and what you can go do to yourself.

    I can imagine, I got my pack and avoided this one like the plague, even had a Tavern Brawl quest which I rerolled.

    I was having fun with evo devo shaman until all the baddies ruined this brawl. Murloc totem, evolve, devolve, jade claws, jade lightning, spirit echoes, thing from below, dk thrall, fire ele, master of evolution. Was getting some crazy stuff then just not even worth playing anymore.

    Did that too. So fun. Well, until I started dropping Yoggs that couldn't take it anymore who killed themselves one spell into it a few times in a row.

    Then I made a Freeze Mage that's win condition was filling the hand with Ice Lances. I dare someone to get a win with this deck. It's so bad that it makes the matches incredibly fun. Mulligan for Arcane Intellect and Ice Block, use Thalnos with Volcanic Potion for combo clears, try and bait opponent into filling their entire boards so you can lock them with Frost Nova, and just keep spamming Ice Blocks while Arcane Intellect helps you dig for either more Ice Blocks, Frost Novas, or Ice Lances. Ping face when applicable and you'll slowly stall until you've got 20+ damage to burn in hand. The Shatter/Ice Walker could be replaced for anything really, maybe Doomsayer and Fireball.

    DK Pally turned out to be really consistent this Brawl as well. Apart from the combo pieces, I threw in Burnbristle + Corpsetaker (which was then guaranteed to get Taunt/DS/LS unless Burnbristle was ejected from the deck), Pyro+EQ and Doomsayer for board control, and finally Patches to thin the discover pool down to 9

    Uhhh... if you're having trouble, just do it with Pirates. That version is laughably easy

    You just keep spamming minions until your Cookie is nice and fat, drop it, pop his body, then slam into the head twice or thrice

    All versions are pretty basic once you get an idea of whats in his deck and yours. The spells one requires some finesse, the cat one is pure bruteforce

    You get a pack of cards regardless of whether you win or lose. Why does it matter if you can't win? Why would you base your decision to play on a weekly event rather than the core ranked modes or Arena?

    Can we please stop treating modern day gaming as something that is always supposed to be easy, accessible to everyone at any cost, and over and done with after 10-15 minutes at a time? Sometimes games are supposed to be hard.

    That horseman brawl was sooooo hard (Or RNG fest?)! Think I tried it 9 times with full focus before I finally won! about 3 with each package. Such a strong control deck. No matter what I put on the board, it's always gone next turn, even if there's no pumpkins around (But usually there is 1-3 every turn). And usually I have no cards to remove those with. But once a few minions did stay for a few turns, and I won! Yaay. So I can see why you don't need to win to get a pack.
