It's a promotion that was probably intended to take place some time over the Christmas period, but those of you who are missing the Winter Veil card back from your collections will be able to unlock it with the next Tavern Brawl.

It's called the Gift Exchange Tavern Brawl and will hit servers on Wednesday 1st February. Those of you without the decorative back will receive it for winning your first match in the brawl, while you'll get the usual Classic card pack if you already own it.

That could be a little annoying for those of you who are more interested in expanding your card collection, rather than old cosmetic flairs you weren't around to unlock the first time they appeared. The Winter Veil card back made its original appearance at the end of 2015, and was rewarded for completing a different festive Tavern Brawl.

What do you think about this change, and are there any other items you'd like to see rotated around again? Let us know in the comments.

    Why not a new Rooster Chinese New Year card back, since the other Blizzard games have gotten in on it?

    @Thimns It's a bit of an odd one to be honest. You suspect this was meant to come around just before Christmas.

    Honestly I'm disappointed, I'd rather get a new card back. I've got the old holiday one and was hoping for some new festive flair. Oh well guess I've got to be satisfied with my free pack
