Hearthstone has always been a game of survival. You need to live through each of your opponent's turns to earn one more mana crystal and the ability to play another card. You only begin with one or two mana on your first turn, but at its top end, if you survive long enough, you'll have a whopping 10 mana every turn to do what you will with.
But what if you didn't need to wait?
In this week's Tavern Brawl, Blizzard has given us the gift of mana — 10 mana, that is, and right from the start of the game. Will we squander this precious present or us it carefully, wisely, respectfully? You can probably guess, but watch the video above to see for yourself.
