Hearthstone's Latest Tavern Brawl Lets You Play Unnerfed World Championship Decks

Hearthstone's Tavern Brawl mode is well-known for giving players the opportunity to try crazy combinations that can't be achieved in Arena or Standard. Blizzard's latest Brawl has taken things a step further, winding back the clock and allowing you to compete against opponents using the original versions of championship decks from 2014 through to 2016.

While Tavern Brawl is considered the least serious of Hearthstone's game modes, this isn't reflected necessarily in this week's offering.

The decks on offer are the same as those played by several champions, including Firebat and Pavel, but some require more finesse than others.

For example, a less experienced player will almost certainly struggle with the likes of Ostkaka's Freeze Mage and Grim Patron Warrior. On the other hand, it doesn't take a genius to stomp face with Firebat's Undertaker Hunter.

What makes this Brawl different from those that have come before it is that the cards are the same as they were back when they were originally played, such as a two-mana Fiery War Axe and Undertaker getting a boost to its attack and health for each deathrattle minion.

The timing of the Brawl makes perfect sense, with the 2017 Hearthstone World Championship running right now in Amsterdam. It's very, very eye-opening comparing the best decks of 2014-2016 to what's currently considered tier one.
