2 x Arcane Missiles (Mage)

2 x Mirror Image (Mage)

2 x Clockwork Gnome (Neutral)

2 x Annoy-o-Tron (Neutral)

2 x Snowchugger (Mage)

1 x Sorcerer's Apprentice (Mage)

2 x Arcane Intellect (Mage)

1 x Ice Block (Mage)

2 x Vaporize (Mage)

2 x Acolyte of Pain (Neutral)

2 x Flamewalker (Mage)

2 x Imp Master (Neutral)

2 x Silverhand Regent (Neutral)

2 x Cone of Cold (Mage)

2 x Polymorph (Mage)

2 x Goblin Blastmage (Mage)

 

Above deck is also a solid alternative, I failed a lot with Pally deck, so created this alternative on my own.

 

Flamewalker wins the game.

 

Vaporize is very critical in certain cases, especially with Krakens and those powered up with Blessing of Kings.

 

Polymorph is mainly for Trion, but if you feel the need to poly a Master Jouster (with Divine shield & Taunt) that should also be okay.

 

Snowchugger + Annoy-O-Tron helps with the weapons.

 

Rhonin may replace Ice Block.

The card list isn't entirely correct, at least not for heroic. The AI managed to place THREE armorsmiths on the battlefield at once.

Actually... I'll try to compile a heroic card list because that's not the only difference by far. I'll get back with one when I can.

I used this mill rogue to get his deck list (lost when he got 2 cards left, must have made a mistake somewhere, should have won):

 

2 Preparation
2 Shadowstep
2 Pit Snake
1 Sir Finley Mrrgglton
2 Gang Up
2 Sap
2 Youthful Brewmaster
1 Brann Bronzebeard
2 Coldlight Oracle
1 Dancing Swords
2 Deathlord
1 Jeeves
2 Refreshment Vendor
2 Antique Healbot
2 Assassinate
1 Emperor Thaurissan
2 Vanish
1 Arch-Thief Rafaam
 
The idea behind using a mill rogue is simple: he doesn't really have board pressure and the AI has a hard time removing Brann or Thaurissan (read: too stupid not to focus him - sometimes he does target him with bash or the armorsmith guys so careful still). So depleting his deck and milling him is not too hard. It actually worked for me quite well but I made one too many mistakes and lost to an unlucky Blingtron weapon in the end.

 

Built this deck to have him cycle through all his deck.

 

OK, this is his decklist. I'm missing one card.

 

2x Sparring Partner

2x Argent Horserider

2x Scarlet Crusader

3x Armorsmith

Blingtron 3000

2x Tuskarr Jouster

2x Lord of the Arena

2x Master Jouster

Tirion Fordring

2x North Sea Kraken

 

2x Truesilver Champion

2x Arcanite Reaper

 

1x Enter the Colisseum

1x Brawl

2x Bash

2x Blessing of Kings

 

I'm missing  a card with 4+ cost. Not sure what.

Why exactly does a decklist contain  Warrior and Paladin cards?

Boss decks don't go by the rules of usual decks. They can have class cards from multiple classes.

You have made a mistake in your heroic list.The Sentinel is using 3x armosmiths and not 2.You can confirm it if you want to.

I defeated Heroic The Steel Sentinel with this F2P deck.

The Steel Sentinel's hero power reduces the incoming damage for him and his minions to one. The attack value of your minions is completely irrelevant, making cards that summon tokens valuable as well as cards with transformation effects.

F2P Mage (0 Dust)
Inspiration: http://www.hearthhead.com/deck=142320/loe-nocost-solver-steel-sentinel

2x Arcane Missiles
2x Elven Archer
2x Mirror Image
2x Acidic Swamp Ooze
2x Arcane Explosion
2x Frostbolt
2x Jeweled Scarab
1x Murloc Tidehunter
1x Brann Bronzebeard
2x Frost Nova
2x Animated Armor
2x Polymorph
2x Water Elemental
2x Etheral Conjurer
2x Summoning Stone
2x Wobbling Runts

Mulligan for Animated Armor, then Jeweled Scarab. Steel Sentinel will almost always attack your face and ignore Animated Armor.
Combine spells with Summoning Stone. Combine Discover minions with Brann Bronzebeard. Excellent spells are the Polymorphs, Ice Barrier and Echo of Medivh. Still good are Arcane Missiles/Explosion and board freezes.
Difficulty: Easy (may take up to 5 tries), IF you play Animated Armor on turn 4.

Deck changes for Normal Mode: 2x Sen'jin Shieldmasta and 2x Flamestrike instead of 2x Animated Armor and 2x Wobbling Runts.

Thanks Fallen for the mage deck. I do not have ice block and replace it with mirror entity. Nail it on the third attempt.

I defeated Heroic Sentinel on my 4th attempt with Dreadlock (would have been 3 attempts, but I accidentally killed my Mal'Ganis with Void Crusher's inspire power in the game before. Doh!)

The key to winning this with warlock is Dreadsteed + Baron Rivendare + Mal'Ganis. I'm finding that Dreadsteeds are effective against many of the Adventure bosses. The issue that the AI has is that it completely ignores the deathrattle. All it looks for is efficient trades. Against 1/1 Dreadsteeds, he will attack them with his small minions. When the Sentinel is equipped with a weapon, he will still attack your hero, UNLESS you have a Mal'Ganis in play. Once my Dreadsteeds were buffed to 3/3, Sentinel wasted both charges from BOTH Truesilver Champions by attacking Dreadsteeds. He saw his 4 attack vs their 3 health as a good trade, but he completely ignored the fact that they would just pop right back up. A board of 5 or 6 Dreadsteeds is able to kill most minions immediately following the turn in which they are played. The minions that require an extra damage or two can be finished off by various spells. My deck includes Mortal Coils, Demonwrath, and Bane of Doom, as well as Dark Bargain and Siphon Souls to destroy certain minions (Tirion, Armorsmith, or any minion buffed by Blessing of Kings) outright.

 

I was thinking that Void Crusher combined with my army of Dreadsteeds would be a good way to kill off larger minions, however in the one game where I used his ability, Crusher killed Mal'Ganis instead of one of the five Dreadsteeds. As if I wasn't already screwed enough, he opted to kill himself on the following turn. I learned my lesson! Never put your trust in Void Crusher...

O my fucking god thank you for this deck. I have no idea how many times I've lost using all sorts of decks and I won with yours on the first try.

I think they improved the AI with one of the updates... it's not ignoring Animated Amor anymore.

dude, I have to be honest, or maybe I am doing something wrong.  But the Paladin deck listed here is bad.  I cannot win to save my life with that deck.  Giving the Mage deck a try now....will reply about that in a bit.

      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.
