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 :)

      If you're not a fan of playing huge Legendary minions every turn, then you may need to rethink your approach to Hearthstone.
       
      The Hearthstone team is on a roll with Tavern Brawls! After Top 2, one of the most well-received Tavern Brawls in recent memory, this week's Tavern Brawl is titled  "Cloneball!".
       

       
      Each player's deck is filled with four copies of random Legendary minions, including minions from the Wild format. Players will also receive a number of copies of "Offensive Play", a card which reduces the cost of your next Legendary minion by 3 Mana, as well as all other copies of that same Legendary in your hand:
       

       
      Though it's difficult to game plan for a specific strategy as the Legendary minions you receive appear to be random, I thought it was pretty sweet to play Loatheb into Onyxia into Onyxia into Onyxia. Slamming huge Legendary minions onto the battlefield is one of the most fun things to do in all of Hearthstone, and you'll get to do it again and again in this week's brawl!
      As is true with most brawls where the class cards aren't incredibly important, Warlock is strong by virtue of Life Tap. However, Paladin has some of the strongest Legendary minions in the history of the Hearthstone, so you could also try to high-roll a deck full of Tirion Fordrings and Wickerflame Burnbristles.
