This Brawl sees players competing with pre-made decks, matching the three Mean Streets of Gadgetzan crime families. At the start of each match the player is randomly chosen to play one of three decks: Jade Lotus (Druid), Grimy Goons (Paladin), or Kabal (Priest). The player will never be given the same deck as their opponent. During the match, the crime family bosses matching the players' decks (Aya Blackpaw for the Jade Lotus, Don Han'Cho for the Grimy Goons, or Kazakus for the Kabal) appear to exchange taunts and threats.
