Hearthstone's new Tavern Brawl mode has shown some creative interpretations of the game's mechanics for its weekly challenges — like last week's spider-infested offering. This week meddles with the game's core DNA, playing a free minion every time you play a spell card. It incentivizes you to build a spells-only deck, which has some pretty preposterous implications in-game, as you'll see in the video above.

This week, Nick Robinson is tapping in for Phil, who is away at San Diego Comic-Con. But don't fret — he's just as bad at Hearthstone. You're going to feel right at home.
