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 :)

      Various bosses from The Witchwood's Monster Hunt are ready to battle it out in this week's brand new Tavern Brawl.
      This is the first special Tavern Brawl that we will see during this year's Hallow's End.
      You just queue up and you get assigned a random boss from the Monster Hunt. Some of these bosses include:
      Azalina Soulthief (Hero Power: 2 mana - Summon three 1/1 Wisps) Blood Witch Greta (Passive Hero Power: Spells cost Health instead of Mana) Brushwood Centurion (Hero Power: 3 mana - All minions attack random enemy minions) Chupacabran (Hero Power: 1 mana - Give a friendly minion +1/+1 and Lifesteal) Plaguemaster Rancel (Hero Power: 2 mana - Deal 2 damage to a minion. If it survives, give it Poisonous) Shudderwock (Passive Hero Power - All Battlecries trigger twice) Winslow Tobtock (Hero Power: 2 mana - Each player shuffles their hand into their decks and draws that many cards) Wharrgarbl (Hero Power: 2 mana - Draw 3 Murlocs from your deck) Experiment 3C (Hero Power: 2 mana - Destroy a friendly minion and draw 3 cards) It's not sure how many bosses there are available, but they certainly have similar decks as during the PvE adventure. It might be worth checking our Monster Hunt guide to refresh your memory on some of their abilities or just experience them in action!

      Hallow's End is going to last from October 17 until October 31.
      As we've already discussed, you can log in to enjoy the spooky festivities and receive a free Golden Witch's Cauldron.
      You will also get a free Arena entry ticket in order to test your mettle in the Dual Class Arena. Pick a Hero, choose the Hero Power of a second Hero and try to make the perfect mix with the combined might of both Heroes' class cards.
      We'll have two Tavern Brawls during Hallow's end: Monster Smash (October 17-22) and The Headless Horseman Rides Again (October 24 - 29)!
      Lastly, for a limited time you can purchase the new Paladin hero, Sir Annoy-o, as a Bundle along with 20 Witchwood packs at the price of $19.99 or 19.99 EUR. This mighty new hero even has his own backstory which you can read here.
      Later today, we should also see the balance changes go live.

      The update will take effect on October 18.
      Well, the balance changes were smaller than expected as only three cards were affected this time.
      As expected, Giggling Inventor was affected as it now costs 7 mana, up from 5. The team actually considered it too powerful for 6 mana, which raises the question why it was 5 mana in the first place. Anyway, it still remains an odd card if this is still relevant.

      Now, a big and unexpected change was Mana Wyrm being raised to 2 mana. The iconic Classic minion has undergone the Tunnel Trogg treatment and after 4+ years of power, it is ready to retire.

      And a Wild change to alleviate the devastating Druid combo: Aviana will now cost 10 mana. This means she can't be played at the same turn as Kun the Forgotten King and Juicy Psychmelon won't be able to draw both Kun the Forgotten King and Aviana with it.

      The update will go live on October 18th with the weekly reset. What do you guys think about the changes?

      Bosses from various Hearthstone adventure battle it out in this week's Tavern Brawl.
      This is the second time we see Boss Battle Royale 2, which itself is a variation of the original Tavern Brawl. This time, we have a new Druid hero and the Warlock hero Sindragosa has been slightly nerfed.
      You pick a class and then you get a specific boss hero, which has its special hero power and a predetermined deck:
      Druid: King Togwaggle (Magic Candle: 3 mana - Find a Treasure) Hunter: Skelesaurus Hex (Ancient Power: 0 mana - Give each player a random cards. It costs 0) Mage: The Curator (Gallery Protection: Passive - Your Hero has Taunt) Paladin: White King (Castle: 2 mana - Discover a chess piece) Priest: Professor Putricide (Mad Science: Passive - All Secrets cost 0) Shaman: Lady Naz'jar (Pearl of the Tides: At the end of your turn, replace all minions with new ones that cost 1 more) Rogue: Grobbulus (Poison Cloud: 2 mana - Deal 1 damage to all minions. If any die, summon a slime) Warlock: Sindragosa (Ice Claw: 2 mana - Do 2 damage. There will be 2 Blocks of Ice on your opponent's side of the board at the beginning of the game) Warrior: Coren Direbrew (Pile On!: 0 mana - Put a minion from each deck into the battlefield) Sindragosa is pretty powerful. Lady Naz'jar, Coren Direbrew and Skelesaurus Hex have random effects that can benefit your opponent - Lady Naz'jar seem to have more success than the other two. Grobbulus can work too, if you play smartly.
      Good luck!
