This single-player Brawl sees the player as a Stormwind Investigator fighting the Headless Horseman, a boss hero. On the player's first turn, the player chooses a costume, gaining a new deck and Hero Power. The goal is to defeat the Headless Horseman.

When the Headless Horseman takes lethal damage, its health is set to 1, becomes Immune, and summons a Headless Horseman's Head. The player wins when the head is destroyed.

Turn 1

The Headless Horseman
The sky is dark, the fire burns, you drive in vain as fate's wheel turns!

Spectral Steed

The Headless Horseman
Prepare yourselves, the bells have tolled. Shelter your weak, your young and your old!


The Headless Horseman
Each of you shall pay the final sum. Cry for mercy, the reckoning has come!

Remove head

Headless Horseman's Head
So eager you are, for my blood to spill. Yet to vanquish me, tis my head you must kill!


Headless Horseman's Head
I am over here, you fool of a body!
The Headless Horseman


Headless Horseman's Head
Harken, cur. Tis you I spurn. Now feel, THE BURN!
The Headless Horseman


Headless Horseman's Head
My flames have died, left not a spark. I shall send you myself, to the lifeless dark!
