There are 12 blessings in total, but each class can only choose from three specific ones. If you go second, then you'll see which blessing your opponent picked, allowing you to strategize with a counter.

Here's what each blessing does in this Hearthstone Tavern Brawl:
  • Blessing of the Rat: Whenever you summon a minion that costs (3) or less, give it Reborn.
  • Blessing of the Ox: Whenever you summon a minion, give it +3 Health.

If your deck looks minion-heavy during mulligan, then Blessing of the Ox with the Warrior class, for example, would be the way to go for some board control.

Meanwhile, the Death Knight class can use the Blessing of the Rat to create sticky minions in the early game. This blessing gives minions that cost three or less the Reborn mechanic, which resummons those minions with one health. Drop a Deathrattle minion in the early game to further annoy your opponent.
Since this Lunar Blessings Tavern Brawl does not require you to have specific cards, you'll be provided with a random deck. This means RNG shenanigans galore!
That's all for now. Stay tuned on Esports.gg for more weekly Tavern Brawl guides.
