Hearthstone Chieftain Scarvash

It looks like his Heroic and normal decks are the same, with just the order of cards in the lists being changed slightly.

I defeated this boss today on heroic with a pretty standard patron warrior (cheap deck). I suspect that you need either inner rage and execute in starting hand, or good turn 2-4 with armorsmith.

If you get board control or manage to build up some patrons without dying, you are good to go.

I defeated him with a cheap priest deck without any shenanigans on my 4th try. The trick is to get rid of the opening pair of Troggs quickly. Any 3/2 with Velen's Chosen works here, or a 3/2 and a Shadow Word: pain. After that his deck is pretty poor and it is crucial to note that he runs a lot of x/6 creatures. Hence the Boulderfists and Lords of the Arena who can often trade 2/1 or even 3/1. 

 

Most cards are replaceable with cards with similar stats if you don't have them (except probably Velen's Chosen)

That priest deck works awesome... saw a number of "cheap" scarvash decks listed from 4000 - 6000 dust... smart deck man. good eye on the x/6 trade strategy

The priest deck above is not very good - 10 tries and no luck. No removal means that you barely get to round 6... so all  those 6 drops are pointless.

 

The warrior deck is more competitive, but still haven't been top beat Scarvash on Heroic.

The priest deck is certainly not an auto-win but you can beat Scarvash with it I just tried it 8 more times and beat him twice (changed the Mind control for a Powerword Glory by the way, but that's not what makes it tick). Let's be real, this boss is a very tough nut to crack. He starts with a massive board advantage that does

- at the very least 10 damage to you before you can do anything

- you have to spend at least 2 cards to neutralize his free threats and

- deal with the rest of his board that he still adds in the first few turns

 

You have to

1) mulligan hard for Velen's and SW:P and hope that you get a 2 drop

2) hope that he doesn't lightning bolt your 2 drop AND

3) hope that he doesn't simply curve to well to overrun you which is still possible.  

 

If you don't get a surviving 2 drop and a Velens/SWP, concede immediately because it's hopeless. Otherwise, play well and you have a chance.

 

I just added the deck to give players without 2 doomsayers a way to win against him. The warrior deck IS probably more competitive but also 5000 dust more expensive, and not 5000 dust in cards like Boom and Sylvanas that most of us have, but 5000 dust in less-often crafted cards.

Hard work if you're on the cheap and you need a bit of luck but it certainly is possible!.

Great deck, Modalko! Couldn't use warrior since I lacked half of the epics the deck required. With yours I managed to win on the third try. I made a few substitions since I had better twodrops like micro machines and knife jugglers, and replaced the temple enforcer with Justicar Trueheart, since I happened to have it. Thanks again!

After losing countless times with the Warrior deck (probably because I lacked a few crucial cards, such as Doomsayer), I won on the first try with a slightly modified version of Modalko's deck.

 

I used Boneguard Lieutenant, Faerie Dragon and two Knife Jugglers, instead of the regular 3/2s suggested. I also used two Light of the Naaru, instead of one and I added an extra 3/2 instead of Mind Control. But I think the basic deck could work just as well.

 

Thanks Modalko!

Great to hear that, you're welcome guys! Yeah, the deck can obviously be improved a bit by using 'higher quality' versions of the basic minions if you have them, but I wanted to keep the 'nice to haves' to a minimum. It's always easier to upgrade than to downgrade :)

I highly recommend using the Summoning Stone - once I used that card the fight was easy!

I defeated Heroic Chieftain Scarvash with these F2P decks.

Heroic Scarvash starts with two Troggs, which have to be dealt with quickly. His hero power interferes with the mana cost of your cards: On odd turns you cannot play any minions. On even turns you cannot play any spells.
Scarvash's deck consists of a lot of 4-drops, meaning he often gets rather slow starts apart from his initial board advantage.
Tunnel Troggs are no threat because Scarvash has only one Overload card: 1x Lightning Bolt.
It might be a good idea to avoid leaving an injured minion on Scarvash's board because of 1x Rampage.
Scarvash's deck contains 2x Dart Trap, so be very careful using your hero power.
Summoning Stone is a very risky play because Scarvash will answer it with 2x Confuse.

Scarvash's minions will mostly ignore Animated Armor, but he will use Starfire against it.
Difficulty: Hard (may take more than 10 tries). If you can get Reno's Battlecry on turn 6 or later, the fight will actually be quite easy, but it still might take several tries.

Tunnel Troggs are no threat because Scarvash has only one Overload card: 1x Lightning Bolt.

 

Scarvash actually has five Overload cards. In addition to Lightning Bolt, he runs 2x Crackle and 2x Fireguard Destroyer. The decklist for Scarvash is two cards short for some reason. Add the two Crackles and it brings the total to 30.

After 22 failed attempts with a mage deck that I made specifically for this fight, I turned to the priest deck presented by Modalko. Using a variation of his simple yet effective deck, I defeated Scarvash on my 3rd attempt. During most matches, it just seems like Scarvash has everything going perfectly his way, whether it's an endless supply of minions that I just can't keep up with, or a well-timed crackle and/or lightning bolt to clear my board. The card that saved me mid-game was Excavated Evil. I was low on health, board cleared...thought I was done for. Excavated Evil wiped the slate clean by clearing his. Anyway, after failing for hours with other classes, Modalko's priest is the way to go. Thank you, sir. wink.png

      Diablo’s 20th Anniversary will take place in the beginning of 2017 and it will be celebrated in all other Blizzard games. Let’s take a look at the special Diablo-themed Tavern Brawl planned for Hearthstone.
      During the release of the latest Hearthstone patch, a new Diabloesque card back was discovered. According to an article by Hearthpwn, where we found all this information, this card back is  tied to an upcoming Tavern Brawl called “[The] Dark Wanderer”.

      The chalk board, heroes, hero powers and some cards of minions, spells and secrets of this upcoming Brawl have been datamined and you can find them in the same Hearthpwn article. The two players will take on the roles of the Dark Wanderer and the Cow King, two figures we all recognise from Diablo II. Presumably, the card back will be rewarded after your first victory in the Brawl.
      We are expecting this new Tavern Brawl during the first weeks of January 2017 – just like the other Diablo celebrations in Blizzard games (most notably in World of Warcraft).

      This week's Tavern Brawl is a repeat of Double Deathrattler Battler. It is a Brawl where you use your own cards to build a deck. Every Deathrattle will trigger twice.
      Although this is a repeat Brawl, it has been a long time since it was last used, September 2015 in fact, and many things in the game have changed since then. In that regard it can be treated as a fresh Brawl. I would like to see this idea of waiting a long time between reusing a Brawl be implemented more often, to help keep them fresh.
      On top of trying to win games, I expect lots of people to have fun experimenting with Weasel Tunneler, as many of its interactions do not work correctly, as per our previous article.

      It does seem as if cards from the Curse of Naxxramas adventure will be very good in this Brawl. Baron Rivendare doesn't stack however, meaning you don't get four times the Deathrattles if he is in play!

      YouTuber, Disguised Toast, is never far from the front of Hearthstone science, and his latest video is spectacular. This video investigates the strange interactions caused by Weasel Tunneler's Deathrattle.
      Weasel Tunneler's Deathrattle seems simple enough, it reads: Shuffle this minion into your opponent's deck. However, when tested by Disguised Toast, it turns out that even this simple looking text can result in rather odd results. The ordering of other Deathrattles on the board, and effects by other cards on Deathrattles is what makes it so unpredictable. Take a look for yourself!
      The fact your deck displays as full, no matter how many cards left, is probably the strangest interaction of all. Even Toast doesn't  attempt to describe how that one happens.
