Hearthstone Giantfin

I defeated Heroic Giantfin with this F2P deck.

Giantfin's hero power automatically draws two cards every turn. This can be extremely oppressive since he gains the ability to flood the board with Murlocs every turn and then buff them as soon as you are unable to provide an answer. When not being buffed by one of the bigger Murlocs, the vast majority of his minions only have 1 health, making small board clears very effective.
Remove all Grimscale Oracles, Murloc Warleaders and Murloc Tidecallers but ignore the others.
Because of Giantfin's Murloc reviving spell you might want to concede, if Murloc Warleader or Old Murk-Eye are played on turn 3 or 4.

I defeated Heroic Giantfin with my Dreadlock deck in one attempt. Giantfin simply doesn't know how to deal with the Dreadsteed!

He had gotten me all the way down to 9, and all I had on the board was a Dreadsteed. Then I played Bane of Doom to finish off one of the bigger murlocs, and it summoned a Mal'Ganis for me! (I have one in my deck as well.) Now that my Dreadsteed was buffed to a 3/3, Giantfin saw it as a threat. The AI couldn't comprehend the resurrection concept, and continuously threw murlocs at the Dreadsteed. A couple murlocs did attack Mal'Ganis though. I have no idea how they decided on how to divvy up attackers. Anyway, with Dreadsteed as a distractor, I cast Demonheart on Mal'Ganis and went face. He only lasted a couple of turns, but it was enough to bring Giantfin within range of my other smaller minions.

It never ignores the armor, the first thing the boss does is destroy the armor
