This deck is leaning waaaay to much on lucky draws. Also I have yet to see Grimstone summoning deathwing after 30 tries.

Really? The odds that he draws Deathwing and plays it are like really high.

I just played the stupidest game ever against the Dark Iron Arena Heroic. I tried something inspired by your mage freeze deck, except I miss all the epic and legendary cards. I compensated with what I had, to see if it was promising. After a couple of loss, I started a game with a Frost Nova and a Mirror Entity. First turn I played nothing, the AI played King Mukly. Second turn I played an Explosive Sheep, the AI played Lorewalker Cho, and this marked the end of the game. From this point on, I would play my Frost Nova every turn, which would get copied to the AI's hand, which he would also play every turn. I got lucky that he only played minions that didn't affect the board (no Ragnaros or Baron Geddon for example), because it allowed me to simply lock the game like this until the end. To finish him off, I simply killed Cho with my hero power (it took 4 turns) before playing my last Frost Nova. He was not able to freeze my minions during his turn, and I finished him with a 23/23 Ethereal Arcanist.
Like I said, stupid game. I was extremely lucky (it's probably impossible to reproduce), but it was fun. :p

I agree. This deck relies so much on luck. And with the many decks that I've tried against Grimstone I've never seen him play Deathwing yet.

Interesting, I've always gotten Deathwing. In any case, you can play around Deathwing and play as if he didn't have it.

Lol, nice! You have weird situations that happen with the Mage deck we have up on the website for Grimstone. If he plays Millhouse Manastorm after turn 7 and you have Archmage Antonidas and Fireball in your hand, you get infinite damage from the free Fireballs and you just one-shoot him tongue.png

I literally created a account just to post this...

 

Millhouse Manastorm from High Justice > On my turn, Antonidas summon, cast 1 spell, and chain fireballs for a kill(they cost 0 mana). Was amazing.

It would have to be really lucky game though, because, from what I've noticed when I rushed him, it seems that His Justice plays always the most expensive minion in his hand. That means he must not have any minion that cost 3 to 7 mana at that turn...

But when it happens, it's nice look and I enjoy that by killing all minions on board before finally finishing my opponent. xD

 

Millhouse happened to me at Mage class challenge, causing in turn 5 quite interesting switch of tides xD

This is the cheapest deck I beat Heroic High Justice Grimstone (Dark Iron Arena) with.

Naxx Mage (0 Dust)
Difficulty: medium (may take up to 10 tries)
Inspiration:



2x Elven Archer
2x Goldshire Footman
2x Mirror Image
2x Frostbolt
2x Frostwolf Grunt
2x Kobold Geomancer
2x Murloc Tidehunter
2x Frost Nova
2x Razorfen Hunter
2x Dragonling Mechanic
2x Fireball
2x Polymorph
2x Water Elemental
2x Frostwolf Warlord
1x Flamestrike
1x Kel'Thuzad

Grimstone's deck is similarly threatening as Coren's, but he does not give you a random minion every turn. This makes it even harder to come up with an effective cheap deck.
The goal of this deck is to fight hard for board control: Stall, freeze and try to survive until turn 9 to play Kel'Thuzad and a taunt. Tinkmaster Overspark and Deathwing are the only possible counters to this strategy.
Use Kobold Geomancer to buff your removal spells.

 

Cheerio,

Bob

Another good deck is warrior combined with whirlwind, execute, grim patrons with warsong commander, you can easily duplicate against the 1/1's while taking out the most dangerous guys with execute.

if u have sylvanas u must put her in the deck :) , just stole deathwing. :) 
Not hard to steal him since he remains the only minion on the board. 
And if u have kt and syl on board u can take some more minions with syl resurrecting :)

      The Americas Region HCT Spring Playoffs will take place over the weekend of 27-28 May 2017.
      The HCT Spring playoffs for the Europe region was completed last weekend, with Hoej, Kolento, Neirea, and Rdu qualifying for the Global Championship next month.
      This weekend is the turn of the Americas region, and the reaction last week is that many players have submitted very greedy control decks in their lists. The players who have submitted the greediest lists will be well placed in the control mirror matches, but those same players will need to dodge the handful of Aggro lineups that are out there.
      To find out if your favourite player has qualified, you can check the standings here. The top 64 and ties made it to the main event, along with 8 Tavern Heroes. The event can be seen on the official Twitch channel from 8am PDT on Day One and 9am PDT on Day Two.

      A new mini-series of funny shorts has started, and we already have 2 episodes out! Mulligans sees an ordinary guy complete the quests that everyday life throws his way with the help of some unusual friends: Uther, Jaina, and Gul’dan. See them battle printer problems and who gets to ride shotgun in the first two episodes:

      The Europe Spring Playoffs and Championship took place over the weekend of May 20-21, which decided not only the new Europe Champion, but also the four players who would represent Europe at the Global Spring Championship in Shanghai next month.
      After seven rounds of Swiss, the top eight players cut to a knockout phase. The results of which were as follows:
        Hoej beat   FibEli3
        Neirea beat   INER
        Rdu beat   Casie
        Kolento beat   StanCifka
      This means that Hoej, Neirea, Rdu, and Kolento will represent Europe in the Global Championship. The top eight being so strong is a sign that the metagame is in a healthy place. All of the players were already known to be among the best in Europe, and despite their lineups differing substantially, they were still able to make it through.
      Hoej went on to take the title, beating Kolento 3-0 in the final. Hoej has been touted as one of the best players in Europe for some time, but traditionally has brought Control decks to major events. This time around, he brought a very aggressive lineup, and was rewarded for his willingness to adapt his style to the meta.
      The deck archetypes that each player brought to the event are listed below:
      Hoej: Aggro Druid, Secret Mage, Murloc Paladin, Pirate Warrior
      Kolento: Jade Druid, Midrange Paladin, Quest Rogue, Quest Warrior
      Neirea: Jade Druid, Discover Mage, Quest Rogue, Quest Warrior
      Rdu: Aggro Druid, Face Hunter, Aggro Shaman, Pirate Warrior
      The next four players to qualify for the Global Championship will be decided next week, with the Americas Spring Championships.

      The Hearthstone Championship Tour (HCT) European Spring Playoffs will take place this weekend, 20-21 May 2017.
      This will be the first playoff event since Journey to Un'Goro was released, and so if anyone has saved any surprise deck tech, this is the event where it will be revealed.
      The top 64 point earners, and ties, from the EU server will be joined by 8 Tavern Hero tournament qualifiers for the event, which will be played in esports bars across Europe. If you want to attend one of the events to cheer on your local favourite, the list of locations can be found here. There will be side events for anyone wishing to attend, with Blizzard prizes available for winners, and the Power Core cardback for all attendees.
      The point standings, showing the top 64, can be found here. As usual the event is stacked with many of the big names from the region. The top four will advance to the HCT Spring Global finals next month.
