Throne of Eldraine Spoiler – Four Brawl Decks
Back in July, we had already reported that the Brawl format is coming to MTG Arena and we knew about how Wizards were planning to support the format in Throne of Eldraine with a supplemental product. For now, you can read up more about what the Brawl format is all about here, as we are writing up an article about it to come soon!
Well, we did not anticipate for it to come this soon to MTG Arena with today’s 0.18.00.00 update (click here for full patch notes) – in the form of MTG Arena in-game event Eldraine Courtside Brawl! Starting today until September 9, we are able to test the waters with the four Brawl Decks to be released with Throne of Eldraine, and earn card rewards in the process. Check out the event page for more details.
Chulane, Teller of Tales and Arcane Signet was spoiled earlier on, but now all the decklists are out. That also means you get to find out what all the cards are in each of these decklists – mostly specifically to the Brawl Decks. You can see them in full in MTG Arena (except for a few select cards – which we talk more about below), or if you do not have access to it yet, check out the decklists and spoilers below along with their descriptions from the Daily MTG article.
There is one tidbit of additional information that we must include here though before we delve any further. We presumed that this supplementary products would function similarly to the Planeswalker decks – whereby you can get a copy of the cards in MTG Arena by redeeming the code included in the deck. Please see below – we can craft the cards using Wildcards, but cannot obtain these through purchasing the physical product.
Will the tabletop Brawl decks include codes for MTG Arena like the Planeswalker decks?
The tabletop Brawl decks will not include a code for MTG Arena.
How do I add the 20 unique Brawl cards to my collection?Source
You’ll be able to craft any of the unique Brawl cards using Wildcards – including the four that were swapped for this event. Please note that just like the Planeswalker decks, these unique cards will not appear in booster packs or as individual card rewards, but they are all Standard legal!
Wild Bounty Brawl Deck
Commander: Chulane, Teller of Tales
A “Spikier” deck that has less synergy but a higher power level. We wanted to use the new Adventure mechanic from Throne of Eldraine, so this deck is about ramping, casting lots of creatures and spells, and rebuying your creatures to get multiple uses out of them.

Savage Hunger Brawl Deck
Commander: Korvold, Fae-Cursed King
This deck for Johnny players has lots of obvious synergy and combos. It uses the Food mechanic from ELD and sacrifices permanents for value.
In this deck, there are two multiplayer specific cards in the tabletop version of the deck – Gluttonous Troll and Chittering Witch. Since MTG Arena does not support multiplayer yet, it is replaced by Izoni, Thousand-Eyed and Mask of Immolation in MTG Arena. You will still be able to craft them in MTG Arena once Throne of Eldraine is released.

Faerie Schemes Brawl Deck
Commander: Alela, Artful Provocateur
This deck has more of a mix of synergy and power. The combos are less obvious, and there are lots of things to discover. It uses the artifact and enchantment theme from ELD, and has a light flying theme as well.

Knights’ Charge Brawl Deck
Commander: Syr Gwyn, Hero of Ashvale
For the player who wants to play creatures and attack. This deck is easier to play than the others. It’s all about Knights and Equipment.
This deck also has two multiplayer specific cards in the tabletop version of the deck – Embereth Skyblazer and Silverwing Squadron. It is replaced by Shivan Dragon and Tajic, Legion’s Edge in MTG Arena. You will still be able to craft them in MTG Arena once Throne of Eldraine is released.
1 Midnight Reaper 1 Knight of the Ebon Legion 1 Skyknight Legionnaire 1 Corpse Knight 1 Skyknight Vanguard 1 Single Combat 1 Bond of Discipline 1 Response // Resurgence 1 Despark 1 Mortify 1 Integrity // Intervention 1 Icon of Ancestry 1 Ancestral Blade 1 Mask of Immolation 1 Colossus Hammer 1 Godless Shrine 1 Temple of Triumph 5 Plains 3 Swamp 5 Mountain 1 Bloodfell Caves 1 Boros Guildgate 1 Command Tower 1 Evolving Wilds 1 Orzhov Guildgate 1 Rakdos Guildgate 1 Scoured Barrens 1 Wind-Scarred Crag 1 Mace of the Valiant 1 Silverwing Squadron 1 Embereth Skyblazer 1 Knights' Charge 1 Shining Armor 1 Venerable Knight 1 Belle of the Brawl 1 Foulmire Knight 1 Order of Midnight 1 Smitten Swordmaster 1 Syr Konrad, the Grim 1 Crystal Slipper 1 Embereth Shieldbreaker 1 Inspiring Veteran 1 Steelclaw Lance 1 Wintermoor Commander 1 Fireborn Knight 1 Arcane Signet 1 Ob Nixilis's Cruelty 1 Marauder's Axe 1 Tournament Grounds 1 Syr Gwyn, Hero of Ashvale
With the spoilers out of the way, soon we will be posting all the information about the Brawl format and event (hopefully before the next lot of spoilers come out) so keep your eyes peeled!
