This Tavern Brawl sees players doing battle with custom decks composed solely of four cards. When the game starts, the opponent choose one card to ban (the opponent will see only three cards of your deck, the fourth one will be a hidden card) and a deck with 10 copies of the other three cards will be made. Banned cards in your hand will be replaced with one of the three unbanned cards.
