I just successfully won against Coren Direbrew on Heroic in 2 attempts with the following (fairly basic deck with only 3 legendary cards). I figured i'd share it with people who are struggling with this fight and don't have many legendary cards.

 

2 x Preparation

2 x Cold Blood

2 x Deadly Poison

2 x Betrayal

2 x Blade Flurry

2 x Eviscerate

1 x Gang Up (might be useful to use two of these if your having bad RNG)

2 x Fan of Knives

1 x Tinker's Sharpsword Oil

1 x Abomination

2 x Sludge Belcher

1 x Vanish

1 x Lord of the Arena

2 x Sunwalker

2 x Sprint

1 x Stormwind Champion

1 x Force-Tank MAX

1 x Gruul (very useful for finishing blow)

1 x Kel Thuzad (theoretically useful but never played him in my winning attempt so not required)

1 x Ysera (Useful for the cheap good minions she gives you but that's about it so again not required but is very useful)

 

The strategy with this deck is making sure you ALWAYS have enough taunt minions alive so that Coren's minions can never hit you.

If he spawns 4 (1/1) minions don't immediately kill them. they take up half of his minion spaces so only kill them when your ready to hit him hard (preferably with Blade Flurry or Fan of Knives)

 

I hope this helps!

I just beat him in Normal with Mage and mostly basic cards. I used 20 spells I had for mage, then filled the rest of my deck with only taunt minions biggrin.png

These are the cheapest decks I beat Heroic Coren Direbrew (The Grim Guzzler) with.

The Hero Power Pile On! allows Coren to summon 2 minions every turn, while it only summons 1 for you. Most of Coren's minions are high-value, so you need to find a way to use his Hero Power to your own advantage. Otherwise you will get overwhelmed very quickly.
The main idea behind beating Coren in Heroic mode is to use large minions that do not have a Battlecry, and support them with spells. Mulligan for spells only. Do not hesitate to concede and restart, if your starting hand has minions or if the early turns did not go in your favor. Navigating the early turns really is the key to defeating Coren.

F2P Mage (0 Dust)
Difficulty: hard (may take more than 10 tries)
Inspiration:



2x Mirror Image
2x Arcane Explosion
2x Frostbolt
2x Frost Nova
2x Fireball
2x Polymorph
2x Dragon's Breath
2x Gurubashi Berserker
2x Archmage
2x Boulderfist Ogre
2x Lord of the Arena
2x Flamestrike
2x Core Hound
2x Stormwind Champion
2x War Golem

Stall with Mirror Image on turn 1 and ideally even turn 2, followed by Frost Nova on turn 3 and 4.
Hope for Stormwind Champion to buff your Mirror Images.
Use Arcane Explosion to deal with Get 'em!
Use Archmage to buff your removal spells, especially Arcane Explosion.
This deck needs the perfect draw, so it can take a while.


Naxx Shaman (0 Dust)
Difficulty: easy (may take up to 5 tries)
Inspiration: http://www.icy-veins.com/hearthstone/legendary-coren-direbrew-shaman-deck-heroic-mode

2x Ancestral Healing
2x Totemic Might
2x Frost Shock
2x Goldshire Footman
2x Rockbiter Weapon
2x Frostwolf Grunt
2x Lava Shock
2x Reincarnate
2x Windfury
2x Hex
2x Ironfur Grizzly
2x Sen'jin Shieldmasta
2x Bloodlust
2x Sludge Belcher
1x Lord of the Arena
1x Kel'Thuzad

The only cheap and easy way to win this fight is by playing dirty and abusing the AI bug concerning Kel'Thuzad and taunts. Coren's Hero Power will even help you with this strategy.
Put as many spells into you deck as possible – be they useful or not. Add Kel'Thuzad and fill up the deckslots with taunts only, preferably cheap ones to be able to play them soon, if you draw them.
Mulligan for Reincarnate. Concede, if you draw Kel'Thuzad.
Use Ancestral Healing on a Totem, as soon as Kel'Thuzad is on the board.
Reincarnate Kel'Thuzad to be safe from Execute.
Use Hex to get rid of Baron Geddon and Mogor the Ogre.
If Coren plays Brawl just hope for the best.
 

Cheerio,

Bob

I really wonder why people focus so much on prolonging the game. You could just play mage, have a number of delaying spells like ice lance, mirror image, ice block, frost nova. The rest of your cards are high cost minions and you can just focus on hitting the face after the boss use his hero power.

T4 Mage Win

 

I just defeated heroic Coren Direbrew/Grim Guzzler on my very first attempt. Using my 'hero power' mage deck, I achieved victory on my 4th turn!

 

rDq6Yk6.png

 

T4 Lethal- 8+6+4=18 atk dmg + 6 from Fireball or 4 from Polymorph = win

 

My deck does not contain KT, as most or all of the others do. Here is the list, for anyone interested:

 

1x Mana Wyrm

2x Frostbolt

2x Fallen Hero

2x Garrison Commander

2x Arcane Intellect

2x Frost Nova

1x Ice Barrier

2x Polymorph: Boar

1x Fencing Coach

1x Saboteur

2x Fireball

2x Maiden of the Lake

2x Water Elemental

1x Antique Healbot

1x Nexus-Champion Saraad

2x Sludge Belcher

1x Coldarra Drake

1x Emperor Thaurissan

1x Flamestrike

1x Frost Giant

 

I know that a few of these minions are poor choices for a fight against this boss, especially the ones with a battlecry. In other words...I got extremely lucky with both my starting hand and Coren's hero power.

T1: I played Mana Wyrm. His hero power (Pile On) brought out Succubus and Baron Geddon for himself, Frost Giant for me.

T2: I played Frostbolt on Baron Geddon, then attacked Baron with my 2/1 Mana Wyrm to kill it. Hit Coren for 8 with Frost Giant. Pile On brought out Ravenholdt Assassin and Grim Patron for himself, Coldarra Drake for me.

T3: I played Frost Nova to freeze his board. Hit Coren for 14 with Giant and Drake. Pile on brought out Venture Co. Mercenary and Dark Iron Bouncer for himself, Garrison Commander for me.

T4: See image above.

 

Four cards essential to my win: a 6-cost minion, an 8-cost minion, and two freeze spells. This leads me to believe that a properly constructed freeze mage with a few heavyweight minions would work like a charm :)

      Dave Kosak introduces us to the Monster Hunt, which will be available in a week.
      The Lead Mission Designer was joined by two of his associates to discuss the newest PvE mode, which will come along with The Witchwood. Paul Nguyen talked about the four heroes. Tess Greymane has a Hero Power that lets her Discover any class card that has been played in a game (by both players) and add it to your hand.
      Darius Crowley has an indestructible cannon minion that can be activated via Darius' Hero Power and fire at the minions across it. Positioning will matter, as you can kill two enemy minions at once and the Hero Power will refresh each time you kill a minion with your cannon. There weren't any details on Houndmaster Shaw or Toki, Time-Tinker, but it was hinted that the former hero will have something to do with Rush (just like its card counterpart).
      Giovanni Scarpati discussed bosses and treasures. The Monster Hunt will feature over 45 unique boss encounters. As Ben Brode had revealed in an earlier interview, each hero will have its own final boss, called "nemesis fight". For Crowley it's Lord Godfrey, for Shaw it's Glinda Crowskin and for Toki it's her own future self! When you clear the Monster Hunt with all four heroes (and win four packs), you get to face Hagatha as the last boss. Ultimately, as far as the treasures are concerned, there are a few returning ones from the Dungeon Run, but most are new. There are also hero exclusive treasures, as well as unique treasures "dropping" from rare boss encounters.
      You should definitely watch the video to get a glimpse of all the new stuff coming with the Monster Hunt. And don't forget: it's release date is April 26 at 10:00 am PDT!
      Daxxarri
      Start stocking up on vials of holy water and cannonballs, because The Witchwood’s free, single-player missions, the Monster Hunt, goes live on April 26 at 10:00 a.m. PDT!
      Join Lead Mission Designer Dave Kosak, along with Mission Designers Paul Nguyen and Giovanni Scarpati, for a Hearthside Chat that will equip you with everything you need to know for a successful Monster Hunt!
      Ready for Action
      If you played the Dungeon Run in Kobolds & Catacombs, the Monster Hunt will be eerily familiar—but much is different! Rather than choosing one of Hearthstone’s nine classes, you’ll take on the role of one of four veteran monster hunters, each with a special ability that you’ll need to make the most of if you hope to survive the hunt.
      Your hunter will venture deep into the Witchwood on Hagatha’s trail, defeating a series of monstrous bosses who dare to cross your path. With each victory, you’ll build a stronger and stronger deck with the items you find. You may encounter some trusty old equipment out in the forest, but much of what you’ll find will be entirely new, including treasures unique to certain foes. Each monster hunter has their own favorite tricks—a special hero power or ability that you’ll need to master if you hope to survive the hunt. Each hunter also carries a grudge against a heinous nemesis in the woods: a unique boss that only they can track down to fight.

      You’ll want to go on a Monster Hunt with every hunter, because each offers a quest that will earn you a Witchwood card pack. And if you’ve got the mettle to complete the Monster Hunt with all four hunters, you’ll finally have a chance to face off with the real witch in the woods: Hagatha! If you can free the wood from Hagatha’s curse, you’ll earn the gratitude of Gilneas and the Monster Hunter card back!

      We hope you enjoyed learning more of what lurks ahead in Monster Hunt! We’re eager to hear your tales of The Witchwood on social media using the #Witchwood hashtag. Learn more about The Witchwood at TheWitchwood.com!
      We’ll see you on the hunt!
