The 76th Tavern Brawl is Valeera's Bag of Burgled Spells!

We have a new Tavern Brawl this week, although it has a similar philosophy to some Brawls we've seen before. Both players play as Valeera only and they get a randomised deck full of spells from all classes. Each spell cast will also summon a minion of the same cost.

Playing on curve is important, but you should also consider the value and utility of each spell. Bear in mind that the minion will be summoned before the spell is cast, so be careful when you use spells like Twisting Nether, Bouncing Blade, Spreading Madness, Poison Seeds etc.

Good luck and have fun!

Contrarily to my first gut reaction of "more random censored", this brawl is actually silly enough to be fun without going into "Turn-1-Dr. Balanced" levels of stupid.

Don't try to plan in advance too much, and as Zadina says,try to play something on curve each turn instead. With both you and your opponent getting random spells and minions from all classes; the board can swing in an eyeblink.

I feel like Flamestrike is insane in this brawl. The main disadvantage of it - the low tempo possibilities - is gone. It might even be the single best spell in the brawl. 

Anyway, I find the brawl to be both fun and skill-reliant, and allows players with nonexistent budget to have fun as well.

This Brawl is absolutly great!

I know some people might not agree with me, but hear me out. Tavern brawl is not a place for people to go and show off their skill its a place where everyone can go and play and have FUN, new players can play with experienced players and actually have a chance against them. I believe that that tavern brawl must always be like this one, because its just better!

Man, Firelands Portal is even more insane in this brawl than otherwise.  7 mana for 5 damage, a 5 drop, and a 7 drop.  

It's not exactly a coinflip, it's more like a best-of-9 coinflip championship.

      The latest Hearthstone community contribution allows you to train the skills needed to master Combo Priest: quick thinking, fast mouse movements, strategic decisions and on-the-spot calculations. What's more to ask?!
      Combo or OTK or APM Priest is a reiteration of Combo and Vivid Nightmare Priest that was born with The Boomsday Project thanks to two cards: Topsy Turvy and Test Subject. Dog is credited as the creator and true master of the deck:
      Many have subsequently tried and failed to pilot the deck, which can require almost 100 moves during the 75 seconds of a single turn. Pro players like Trump and Thijs have hilariously failed, while others like Disguised Toast and Kolento kept trying until they got the hang of it.
      Right now, you might be dreading that you don't have the IQ to play this deck. Fear no more: everything can be practiced and Patashu has made the tool for it! Combo Priest Simulator allows you to practice the OTK combo on your browser, while also timing you. You can change the parameters of the starting gamestate, too.
      In all seriousness, the deck's winrate is below average and it's honestly too much trouble for too little gain. Then again, slamming your opponent's face for 100+ damage is quite satisfactory. It would be awesome if someone was brave enough to bring this deck at a tournament: it would be the casters' nightmare!
      Apart from Combo Priest Simulator, we have a guide for Topsy Turvy OTK Priest here on Icy Veins; the guide breaks down the necessary steps of the combo in a useful priority list. Alternatively, you can listen to Aleco trying to explain how the deck works to Patrick (and actually succeeding) in the latest Icy Veins Podcast!
