"You collided with another Hero and your decks are mixed up! Pick another hero at the start of the game; your deck will be a random combination of the two classes!"

Cart Crash at the Crossroads is a Tavern Brawl. It debuted on June 1, 2016.

This Brawl appears to have been inspired by Encounter at the Crossroads, featuring the same design but without the second class.

This Tavern Brawl sees players doing battle with randomly constructed decks, using a combination of two selected classes. To enter the Brawl the player first chooses a class, after which a deck is randomly generated containing 19 cards (11 class cards and 8 neutral). Following the mulligan, the player then chooses from one of three random "second classes", resulting in 11 cards suitable to that class being shuffled into their deck.

Special cards[]

These choice cards are used at the start of each Brawl when selecting a "second class".

  • Each player's "second class" is chosen through a Discover-type mechanic at the start of the Brawl, with each class represented by a unique choice card that acts to shuffle cards into the player's deck. The classes presented are randomly selected, adding a further element of unpredictability to the Brawl, and preventing players from using the same combination each match. With 8 possible classes (excluding the player's original class) each class has a 3/8 (37.5%) chance of being presented as an option.
  • Each deck contains 11 class cards for each chosen class (for a total of 22), and 8 neutral cards.
  • The hero, Hero Power and class for quest purposes are all determined by the original class.
  • The selection of the second class comes after the mulligan but before the first card is drawn from the deck. This means that the cards in the starting hand will never come from the second class, but the first card drawn may.
  • As of the 7th revision, there is no Second Class: Demon Hunter card, meaning Demon Hunter will never be offered as a second class.


Warlock is by and far the best class as the decks are typically heavily weighted in mana cost but Warlock has better early game. The best secondary classes are Mage and Rogue for the useful spells.
