This Brawl sees players competing with pre-made decks, matching Old God-themed Deck Recipes, with most built around a specific Old God minion. Before each game the player chooses a class, which also determines their deck. At the beginning of each player's first turn, the recipe's flavor text is displayed to both players, providing an overview of the deck's contents and strategy. All matches within this Brawl are played on the Whispers of the Old Gods battlefield.
