Servant Of Yogg-Saron Tryouts is this week's Hearthstone Tavern Brawl Blizzard

This week’s Hearthstone Tavern Brawl is “Servant Of Yogg-Saron Tryouts.” It’s a repeat Brawl, but that doesn’t mean it’s any less fun to play.

Each player chooses a class, then gets a deck full of random cards. Whenever you play a minion, you play a random spell in the game on a random target. Any minion can summon any spell, regardless of cost; this means when playing Druid, a Novice Engineer can give your nonexistent weapon Deadly Poison or Flamestrike your enemy’s board. I was quite surprised when my Pit Cobra played Felfire Potion.

This is the first time “Servant Of Yogg-Saron Tryouts” has been playable in Journey To Un’Goro. There’s something super gratifying about playing a Raptor Hatchling and then getting it Dinosized. A turn one 10/10 minion does seem pretty good. This Brawl doesn’t use Standard format rules, so every card is up for grabs. I’m still hoping for that Piloted Shredder into Spirit Echo combo I’ve been dreaming about.

In “Servant Of Yogg-Saron Tryouts” RNG is your only friend. My first opponent kept blowing up every minion he played, finally rage quitting after his Ornery Direhorn died to Volcano. If you don’t win your first match, it isn’t because you picked the wrong class or played the wrong minions, it’s because lady luck gave you the middle finger. This Brawl isn’t meant to be taken seriously, just use it to finish whatever class gold quests you’ve got sitting there, gathering wisp dust.

Personally, I prefer the more strategic Tavern Brawls, but I still have fun with the goofy ones. Hearthstone’s ranked ladder can get stressful, so it’s nice to just be able to sit down and play a mindless card game.
