cheap deck with 3 legendaries in it? trolls? xD

Dear Matze. The 3 legendaries that you are referring to, are the cards that the boss has in his deck: Alexstrassa, Nozdormu, Onyxia.

 

The decks to counter them are at the bottom of the page, where 2 decks with 0 legendaries (that has to be crafted or opened from packs) are included, along with a heroic mode druid deck for the people who has access to more cards.

 

Troll? :P

I used quite a similar deck. The main damage dealer was the Flamewaker! It's a great addition. And with low attack on it's own, it wasn't a priority for the AI biggrin.png

 

Added some silence as well.

Worked for me. Didn't have one Cabal and the Light bomb but used Holy fire (which gave me the deciding 5 damage!) and Temple Enforcer in stead. Took about 15 tries though :-)

Yeah, the Boss is hard work, numerous tries is to be expected, I will continue the quest for a deck with close to 100% consistency, but it might be tricky. I have won 4/6 times with the Priest deck myself, but it is a challenge that requires more than simply the right deck to beat.

I seriously doubt you won 4/6 with the priest deck without conceding for a decent hand multiple times. The priest deck may win eventually but it's a very low percentage. every game I've gotten Deathlord out he either has that bitch ass 2/3 out and i have no way to deal with it or he keeps dropping minions faster than I can heal it and no inner fire, even with divine spirit.

Won with the mage deck. It needs some tries but when you get a good starting hand it's doable. Probably the hardest boss (BrM) so far!

Follow up to my post. The strategy that works best with this match-up is: Get out KT ASAP with a taunt minion and abuse the AI. Otherwise you need a little luck and a great draw with priest deck.

 

I think a reliable, good, cheap deck might be Druid with innervates, wild growth, dryad, cheap taunters (maybe even target dummy) and KT with a little buffing and healing potential. Throw in BGH and Naturalize to help your staying power and just get KT out + Taunt

Well the "Low-Budget" mage deck is definitely trolling ...if 6 epics and 1 Legendary adding for an over 4k dust deck called "low-budget" is not trolling, i'm not sure what is! laugh.png

 

I wonder how much would a "hi-budget" cost by that author. biggrin.png

Well, let your wondering cease, if you click the other link in the guide, you'll see a full budget guide that costs twice as much! The horror!

I've tired all 3 decks that you suggest & zero success with them all. There has to be a easier way to defeat w/o losing my mind or making me want to through my pc out the window.

Won first try with this deck. Granted I was drawing perfectly, but berserker was so buffed up when I won. He had 15 attask and finished him off quickly.

This is the cheapest deck I beat Heroic Chromaggus with.

Chromaggus will fill your hand with expensive and nasty spells you have to get rid of eventually. Getting a discount on your spells or all of your cards will help a lot.
You can ignore Brood Affliction Green completely until you have stabilised and want to start to deal damage to Chromaggus.
You can keep Brood Affliction Red for a while and sustain the damage in order to stabilize your board. Get rid of it, when you reach 10 HP.
You can keep Brood Affliction Black for a turn, as it is no immediate threat.
You should get rid of Brood Affliction Blue quite soon, as the discount Chromaggus gets on his spells is very strong (Flamestrike for 4 mana, Flameheart for 0!) and a great danger for your minions and your HP.
You need to get rid of Brood Affliction Bronze immediately, because you absolutely need to keep board control and cannot allow Chromaggus to fill his board with dragons.
Chromaggus' minions will almost always ignore yours, if they cannot kill them without dying themselves. With his Chromatic Dragonkin however he tends to be more defensive.

Cheap Naxx Priest (80 Dust)
Difficulty: medium (may take up to 10 tries)
Inspiration:



2x Goldshire Footman
2x Inner Fire
2x Mind Vision
2x Murloc Raider
2x Northshire Cleric
2x Power Word: Shield
2x Zombie Chow
2x Bluegill Warrior
2x Divine Spirit
2x Frostwolf Grunt
2x Murloc Tidehunter
2x Shadow Word: Pain
2x Deathlord
2x Shadow Word: Death
1x Emperor Thaurissan
1x Kel'Thuzad

This deck has lots of 1- and 2-drops, as it tries to control the board early while still being able to get rid of the Affliction cards as soon as possible.
You have several ways to win this fight:
Use Mind Vision to steal Chromatic Dragonkin. Chromaggus will ignore it and his spells with continuously buff it.
Play Emperor Thaurissan on turn 6 and keep him alive to get a discount on the Affliction cards.
Play Deathlord and buff it with Divine Spirit and Inner Fire.
Put Kel'Thuzad next to a taunt.
 

Cheerio,

Bob

This boss is no fun. Just what the hell were blizzard thinking when adding Nozdormu at all, let alone put it in here.

Boss plays Nozdormu, never get another turn, GG. That is not gameplay...

The deck probably works btw. I got a priest too with focus on stuff like lightwarden, holy champion and heals. With Thaurissan for discount. That works too except for the Nozdormu bug.

Guys I tried these decks and couldn't keep the cards out of my hands. Then it hit me. Why not use the cards to play? I used a mana ramp druid with summoning stone and beat him my first try. Just get the summoning stone out and summon minions as you discard the crap he gives you. WIN!

Could you possibly post your deck? This seems like a fun deck and im just very unlucky with the priest deck. Please and thank you!

So, my Chromagus gets out Nozdormu every single time, especially when he feels I ma winning (with my KT out on the board..... even if I manage to kill it somehow, voila.. he plays out another copy of it... I mean seriously..

Otherwise I think the priest would work. I'll keep on trying :-/

Against Heroic Chromaggus, a variation of the featured mage deck worked for me on my 5th attempt.

 

cRCgsIf.png

 

I lacked six cards from the suggested decklist:

1x Unstable Portal

1x Big Game Hunter

1x Alexstrasza

2x Mountain Giant

1x Molten Giant

 

I replaced them with:

1x Ironbeak Owl

2x Flamewaker

1x Spellbreaker

2x Summoning Stone

 

I feel that the silences made a valuable addition as a means to neutralize a couple of the 4x Chromatic Dragonkin. I included the Summoning Stones after reading about the brilliant idea of letting Chromaggus's Brood Affliction spells work for you by summoning minions. Alas, this was proven to be an ineffective strategy, simply due to the fact that they cost too much at 5 mana. During the matches in which I had one in my hand, I never played it because I always had more important things to spend my mana on. The Summoning Stones played no part in winning with this deck.

 

Sorcerer's Apprentice is key! Getting at least one of these out early helps tremendously. For some reason, Chromaggus doesn't consider them a threat. He tends to prefer hitting you in the face.

2X Blessing of Might


2X Humility


2X Grimscale Oracle


2X Murloc Raider

2X Bluegill Warrior
