This Tavern Brawl sees players given semi-randomized decks. Each player has a First Wish added to their hand after the mulligan, which has an effect similar to the Battlecry of Zephrys the Great. The First Wish then shuffles a second into your deck, and then finally a third.
- For extensive information on how the wishes work, see Zephrys the Great#Notes
- Decks are random but contain themed cards, likely based on the bucket system for Tombs of Terror.
The wishes can be extremely powerful, providing board clears, removal, and pressure on demand. Like Zephrys, their effect should be saved for when you have no other options as not to waste their versatility. Alternatively, you can play for tempo if your hand supports it. A turn 1 wish will always provide a Flame Imp, for example; however, beware that your opponent can counter it with a Backstab from their own First Wish.
If you're playing your first wish on turn two, be sure to spend your mana first. Otherwise it will offer 2-drops instead of much more useful 3-drops.
If you have "if you're holding a Dragon" cards in your hand in the early game, but no Dragons (this is often the case with Paladin), playing First Wish on turn 2 (or on turn 1 with all mana spent) on an empty board will offer you Faerie Dragon, while playing First Wish on turn 3 (or on turn 2 with all mana spent) on an empty board will offer you Brightwing.
