Hearthstone Nefarian and Onyxia

You should use the decks outlined in the other boss guides for those bosses, but the OTK Priest strategy is pretty solid against a number of different bosses.

10-4 thanks for the quick reply.  I'm semi-new so I don't have too many good cards yet.

Umm, I used the standard Chinese Grinder Priest deck and the fight against Nefarian was ridiculously easy. O_o

Admitted, I had a strong Northshire Cleric start, but as soon as I had a Deathlord on the board things went VERY smoothly. I dictated the pace, put out Emperor Thaurissan and had him on the board for like 5 turns, always buffing my nearly full hand. I honestly thought I accidently started the fight in normal mode ...

After I have beaten all bosses in Heroic mode I must say, that the last wing seemed to be the easiest one: I beat every boss without abusing Kel'Thuzad. *patting my own shoulder* ;)

Which deck are you guys referring to? Because i'm 3/3 with the Priest deck, Once on NA when I was making the decks, then again when I fatigued him to get his full decklist, then again when I cleared it on my main EU account. It seems very consistent to me.

Your Mage Deck for Nefarian/Onyxia worked for me in the 4th try. Seems to need a little drawing luck. Thank you

I got lucky with Deathlord, divine spirit and inner fire and won with this deck on my first try! Hurrah!

After Kel Thuzad comes on the game is won. Still took me 12 more turns to finally get my Deathlord to 32 ;-)

Well I got my deathlord to 42/42 on the first try, so it worked fine for me!

For me, the deck worked like a charm and I defeated Nefarian on second try.

It's a basic deck and it works, what else do you want? If you want an easy normal mode victory, just use one of the heroic decks.

I was skeptical, but I kept trying and after 6 attempts I finally figured out how to play it effectively.  It works, but good draw is crucial.  My strategy was to get him to 1 armour and then kept taking out his minions and buffed my deathlord up enough to take Neffy out in one shot.  It took 14 turns before I could get there.  Good luck!   http://twitter.com/SassyMofrass/status/595324039154913280/photo/1

Managed on the first run in crazy fashion when I accidentally Holy Nova'ed the last of the armor over, starting phase two. Ended up coming out fine with the Northshire Cleric doing a bangup job. Farmed a 10 card hand before ending the Onyxia phase and losing my first wave of minions. Setting up to finish was quick and painless, since I could push the damage over with a single minion hit at any time and set up after. Even with the Velen and Kel'Thuzad gone at that point, I had a second Lightwell and Inner Fire Deathlord ready to go and Nefarian was in pure topdeck mode with a clear board at that point.

 

Tried a second time, to see if I could make it smoother andI ended up in another interesting situation. Found out I wouldn't be able to get my Deathlord up to 31/31 when I used the health doubling too early, and lacking the Velen's Chosen. Fourtunately I had a single Gurabashi Berzerker and Prophet Velen replacing some of the cards I didn't have. Ended up camping behind the high health Deathlord with Velen and double Lightwell keeping everything topped off, and a handy Northshire Cleric I eventually had to replace when I got lower on cards. Farmed the Berzerker scaling up on the 4/2 minions. Finally finished at 5 damage worth of fatigue, but had enough healing up I could have gone for several more turns if need be. Always nice to have a bit of a backup plan. One thing to note that run, Kel did manage to get sniped at one point, when he got two 4 damage spells into hand. Too little, too late for Nef though.

 

Not bad, winning two for two, though guessing the Northshire Cleric draw going well really helped.

Please explain better that you have to do 31 dmg in 1 attack not in 1 turn.

I was able to defeat this boss on normal mode using the standard Mech Aggro/Rush Mage deck after only two tries :)

I'm on attempt- no joke- 116 I've been at this for six days using all variations of this recommended deck and the two others and the best I got was to get him to 12. Frankly I can't really feel like this site is anything except meant to troll people who are coming here for advice.

      The new meta is still forming, but even at this early stage it seems that Kazakus will be a large part of it. This article shows all of the available potions, and explains how the ordering of the spells when cast is likely to change.
      The first trick to remembering all of the options is to realise that  in the potion creation stage, nearly all of the choices are fundamentally the same no matter whether the spell costs 1, 5, or 10 mana. The cost of the spell simply powers up the effect. There are ten different effects to choose from, which are outlined below. The spells are remembered more easily when you group the effects by numbers.
      1, 2, 3 effects:
      Icecap: Freezes 1, 2, or 3 enemy minions.
      Ichor of Undeath: Summons 1, 2, or 3 friendly minions that died this game.
      Kingsblood: Draws 1, 2, or 3 cards.
      Shadow Oil: Adds 1, 2, or 3 random Demons to your hand.

      Other effects in number order:
      Felbloom: Deals 2, 4, or 6 damage to all minions. 
      Goldthorn: Gives your minions 2, 4, or 6 extra health. 
      Netherbloom: Summons a 2/2, 5/5, or 8/8 demon.
      Heart of Fire: Deals 3, 5, or 8 damage.
      Stonescale Oil: Gives 4, 7, or 10 Armor.
      Mystic Wool: This card is unique in that it has no effect for 1 mana. It either turns a random enemy minion into a 1/1 Sheep, or all enemy minions into 1/1 Sheep.

      At the moment, many of the pairings work according to the game engine, rather than in the best order, which means that Kazakus is not working as intended. An example of this would be minions that are getting killed by damage are then getting frozen before leaving play. This is correct in terms of how the game works, as deaths are always processed last, but the spells are going to be made to work outside of the regular game engine. This will make them more powerful and intuitive.

      We are already working on this. Feel free to post stuff like this on our bug forums. (source) This reply on Reddit confirms that the idea of the custom Spell is that it will resolve in an order beneficial to the caster, and that it will likely be changed very soon.
