The new Tavern Brawl is Decks Assemble! Battle using premade decks, that use the discover mechanic to build a new deck as the Brawl continues!


You'll start with a hand of 3 cards (or 4 cards, if second) and 4 cards in your deck. These cards are one of Tarnished Coin, Armor Plating, Whirling Blades or Chicken and can contain duplicates. Then, the Brawl follows a set pattern each turn.

1. At the beginning of each turn you will get to Discover one card to add to your hand.
2. Every card you play will be re-added into your deck.
3. When you hit end turn, you will discard your entire hand and redraw 4 new cards from your deck, which could include cards you just played.

  • You should use Tarnished Coin whenever you have one since you'll be redrawing at the end of your turn anyways.
  • Fel Reaver causes you to discard from your deck. You do not get those cards back, anything discarded is lost to the abyss. You will never fatigue however.
  • This is also true for cards like Doomguard that cause you to discard from your hand as they aren't added to your deck at the end of your turn.
  • Cards like Gang Up let you increase the likelihood of drawing those cards.
  • Things with Discover such as Ethereal Conjurer let you add the discovered card to your deck for good.
  • As Disguised Toast points out, because you don't really draw cards, certain effects won't trigger when your opponent gets a new hand.
PSA: Cards that triggers off "DRAWS" will not work with this week's Tavern Brawl - despite the wording RT please!

UPDATE: Bad news folks, due to issues with the servers, this week's Tavern Brawl has been delayed (at least for the Americas server). A similar situation arose when Blizzard tried to launch Captain Blackheart's Treasure for the first time. The brawl was delayed by three weeks and replaced by Spiders, Spiders, Everywhere. We'll let you know when Blizzard provides an update on what this week's brawl will be.

[NA #Hearthstone] This week's Tavern Brawl has been delayed. We'll update when we have additional news.

@r3mnar Probably hours. Our techs continue to troubleshoot the issue. We will provide additional info when we have it. ^JH

Spider Brawl again?
@Tizzysawr Probably not, Bruno. ^JH

It looks like Blizzard is doing everything it can to actually get Decks Assemble live this week rather than simply replacing it with another brawl.

Our apologies - This week’s Tavern Brawl is currently delayed as we work on a resolution for disconnection issues.

@thenova_project Our techs are trying to get it out today. ^JH

It looks like the Tavern Brawl is now live on the Americas server!
