2.1. Mana Curve


3. Strategy

This deck, pioneered by Noxious, is one of the most popular and entertaining decks in Hearthstone. It is not to be viewed as a competitive deck, nor as a deck for someone who is just efficiently looking to climb the ladder, since it is prohibitively expensive for many players, and more importantly, simply focused on embracing the random nature of Hearthstone cards and creating chaos.

There is very little serious strategic discussion to be had about this deck. The primary goal is simply fun, and using random, chaotic cards to create ridiculous situations. The vast majority of cards in the deck have some sort of random effect, with the exception to this rule, such as Millhouse Manastorm simply being added to add to the fun factor.

With this said, the deck does play a reasonable curve of minions in order to allow you to curve out through your deck effectively, with cards like Young Priestess, Knife Juggler, and Mad Bomber helping you to fight for the board early.

If you are able to stay in the game, and the randomness works out in your favour, the deck actually becomes very competitive in the late-game due to the amount of power cards you have in this period. Ysera, Ragnaros the Firelord, and Sylvanas Windrunner, although random, are extremely powerful cards that are often used as late-game threats of choice in fully competitive deck. Part of what makes this deck so entertaining to play is that the fact that the cards included are still powerful, but simply rely on more randomness that many competitive players are comfortable with.

Aside from this, there is not much to be said on overall strategy with the deck. Simply try to play out your curve and cross your fingers that the randomness works out in your favour when needed.

3.1. Mulligans & Matchup Specific Strategies

You will look to Mulligan for a smooth curve of your early minions and spells. Young Priestess, Knife Juggler, Mind Vision, Millhouse Manastorm, and Mad Bomber are all excellent choices to keep.

3.2. Card Swaps

Since this is a deck aimed at entertainment, as opposed to competitiveness, you can add any card that you feel will be a fun addition to the deck. Cards to consider are Dark Cultist, Alarm-o-Bot, Master Swordsmith, Hungry Dragon, Enhance-o Mechano, and Sneed's Old Shredder amongst others. You can also add in removal cards like Shadow Word: Pain, Shadow Word: Death, and Mind Control if you want to make the deck more stable.
