It’s time for some Deathrattle shenanigans!
This week's Hearthstone Tavern Brawl is Shake, Deathrattle and Roll! Read on for our guide on how to claim victory and secure your weekly Standard card pack for free.
Shake, Deathrattle and Roll Tavern Brawl guide
In the Shake, Deathrattle and Roll Tavern Brawl, every minion that you play will copy a random minion's Deathrattle effect! After selecting your Hearthstone class, you must also duke it out against your opponent using a random deck.
The random deck is provided by the Tavern Brawl itself, but you can strategize a bit to increase your chances of winning a game. Once you enter a match, make sure to have a good mana curve. Do this by replacing cards during the mulligan phase. This phase is when you can keep or replace cards in your starting hand.

After the mulligan phase, plan out your next few turns by paying attention to each card at your disposal. Ask questions like, "Do I have a card for turn 2 if I'm using the Coin on turn 1?" and "Do I have a plan for turn 3?" Additionally, take advantage of any card synergies. The screenshot below highlights an improved Alexstrasza's Champion thanks to having the Starlight Whelp Dragon minion in hand.
Remember the Deathrattle aspect in this Tavern Brawl as well. Whenever you play a minion, it gains the Deathrattle effect of a random minion. This adds a layer of unpredictability, but you can sometimes prepare for these Deathrattles as well.
For example, if you know that a Deathrattle will clear the board once, think about what the board will look like in the aftermath. The screenshot below shows what's after a board clear. Thanks to the Deathrattle effects of Vryghoul and Piloted Sky Golem, two minions appeared on the board.
Continue controlling the board by make smart trades. Don't forget to go face, either. Deplete your opponent's health total to win the match!
After claiming your first weekly Tavern Brawl victory, head over to Hearthstone's main menu and click on the "Open Packs" button. There's a free Standard card pack there to celebrate your win.
