Table your normal Tavern Brawl plans for next week. Blizzard has announced that the Heroic Tavern Brawl will return for the first time in 2017. It has been 15 weeks since the brawl debuted and it will remain Standard for the time being, though Blizzard promises there will be a Wild Heroic Tavern Brawl sometime this year as well.
As always, the stakes are high and entry is not for the feint of heart. The cost remains hefty at $9.99 or 1,000 gold.
Not including arcane dust, to earn your entry fee back, you'll need to reach at least seven wins before losing three times and completing your run.
More details can be found below in Blizzard's post.
Standard Heroic Tavern Brawl Returns!
Ready for the ultimate competitive Tavern Brawl experience that will test Hearthstone’s best in an all-out battle for glory? If you think you’re up to the challenge, get your deck ready and dive into the fray, because Heroic Brawl returns!
Heroic Brawl will challenge even Hearthstone’s most experienced players as they vie for glory and in-game rewards! Participants will create a Standard deck from their existing card pool and lock it in before their first Heroic Brawl match. No changes can be made to your Heroic Brawl deck once you’ve locked it in, so be sure to do a bit of testing before you finalize your deck.
Once you’ve locked in your Standard deck for Heroic Brawl, you’ll be pitted against other Heroic Brawlers in heated battle. Just like the Arena, you want to shoot for 12 wins to get the best rewards—but if you get three losses, you’re out!
For Hearthstone’s best brawlers, 50 Mean Streets of Gadgetzan packs, a heap of Gold, piles of Arcane Dust, and three golden Legendaries sit at the end of the 12-win rainbow. The rewards are significantly different than what you have come to expect in the Arena, and the more games you win, the better they get. Are you ready to take on the best and brightest of competitive Hearthstone?
Heroic Brawl is not for the faint of heart, and is a unique experience meant for the extremely competitive and experienced Hearthstone player.
Heroic Brawl lasts for only one normal Tavern Brawl week and has an entry fee of $9.99 USD or 1000 gold. You can participate in Heroic Brawl for a limited amount of completed runs. As mentioned above, Heroic Brawl rewards scale depending on how many wins you get, so be sure to do your best each run!

We hope that our Heroic Brawl scratches the competitive itch of the players looking for a high risk, high reward experience.
Heroic Tavern Brawl Standard returns next week!
