Great Father is dropping crates on the battlefield! Get a gift each time you smash your opponent's crate... or your own!
- Blizzard didn't bring this brawl back during the 2016 holiday season, leading to community outrage.
- The brawl came back in February 2017 as a re-release post-2016 holidays.
- This is the first brawl that rewarded a card back as the reward.
- Completing this brawl used to give you a Classic Pack if you already have the card back.
How it Works
- Build a custom deck using cards from your own collection.
- At the start of your turn, provided there is not a Winter's Veil Gift on your side of the field, Greatfather Winter will drop one off.
- Destroying a Gift will give you a Stolen Winter's Veil Gift.
- Stolen Winter's Veil Gift allows you to Discover a card from the class of the player the originating Gift minion came from.
- You are only able to receive cards that initially cost at least 5 mana.
- The cost of the card is reduced by 5 mana.
- You are unable to Discover weapons.
- You have a chance of seeing Hardpacked Snowballs in the Discover mechanic.
- Cards that swap Health and Attack can let you obtain gifts very early. See Crazed Alchemist.
- If you wipe the board out with a Doomsayer, you could end up with two Stolen Gifts!
- Buffing up your gift can make it an early threat. Priests have an easy time keeping gifts alive with their heals and can buff it easily with their kit.
