This week's Tavern Brawl is Lead from the Front. In this unique variant, your hero has Taunt(!) and starts with 30 life and 10 armor. Custom decks are required so feel free to bring your favorite smorc lists to the table.


The only way to remove minions from your opponents board is through the use of removal spells, battlecries, and the such. Taunt minions are still eligible to be targeted, if your opponent happens to play one or you use a Rusty Horn on an opposing minion. It's up to you if you want to take the risk to actually eliminate them though.


But you don't have to go face! Try out a Control Mage decks with cards like these:
