It's Christmas in February - The Gift Exchange Brawl Has Returned This Week!

Great Father is dropping crates on the battlefield! Get a gift each time you smash your opponent's crate... or your own!


  • This is the second time we've seen this brawl.
  • Gift Exchange first debuted on December 14, 2015.
  • There was a lot of community outrage when Blizzard didn't activate this for Holiday 2016, that's why we're getting it in February.
  • This was the first brawl that rewarded a card back for it's reward and at this time, one of two.
  • If you have already obtained this brawl's card back from last time, you will earn a card pack instead.

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 which initially cost at least 5 mana.
    • The cost of the card is reduced by 5 mana.
    • You are unable to Discover weapons.
  • If you obtain a Stolen Gift through a card like Mind Vision, it will only pull cards from the neutral set.
  • You have a chance of seeing Hardpacked Snowballs in the Discover mechanic.

Cool Interactions

Share yours in the comments!

  • Crazed Alchemist allows you to trigger gifts on your side of the field easily.
  • Doomsayer clears the board after your gift is dropped which could easily result in two Stolen Gifts if opponent passes.
  • Priests could Divine Spirit + Inner Fire a gift on their side of the field for a nice present to the face - if it survives a full turn!
  • Mages love Flamewaker! Plenty of fun thanks to the Stolen Gift spells.
  • Warlocks could drop a Void Terror after using Power Overwhelming on a gift.
