Hearthstone Emperor Thaurissan

He does run flamestrike(s) and deathbite(s) in heroic mode. Only just started going at this guy, so not really sure what other kinds of shenenigans can pull off...

He has at least 2 Flamestrike, I'm having a lot of trouble getting the entire deck for that guy. He also has 2 Abominations and 2 Unstable Ghouls, so that quickly takes care of silences.

I'll keep trying until I have all 30 cards (I must be at 22 now).

Okay, I almost have the Heroic decklist, only missing one card at this point. Not sure how to link cards properly, so i'll just list the names for now:

Flame Imp - x2
Leper Gnome - x2
Fiery War Axe - x2 (most likely)

Loot Hoarder - x2
Unstable Ghoul - x2
Flameheart - x4
Imp Gang Boss - x2
Axe Flinger - x2
Dark Iron Dwarf - x2
Death's Bite - x1
Abomination - x2
Dark Iron Skulker - x2
Fire Elemental - x2
Flamestrike - x2

 

Some of the cards I'm not 100% sure about, as I wasn't recording any footage and my attention span is generally lower than room temperature, but it seems to be accurate so far.
The deck doesn't seem to run any other minions, as far as i can tell, so unless there's some elusive BGH that evaded all my Thoughtsteals, the mystery card is either a third Win Axe (i think i saw it, but likely just kept a bad count), a fifth Flameheart (like he cares about any rules) or, the most logical option, the second Death's Bite, although I have survived the first one a few times and never saw the second.

Gotta say, he doesn't seem to love his wife a whole lot, waving that thing around. What a mad bastard...

Also, as of now the AI always makes a mistake of buffing Moira with DI Dwarf after she attacked (even if there are other minions around), which helps a little bit.

I dont have some of the good warrior cards though (most importantly shield slams), so I'm having trouble beating him still. I'm thinking some kind of a one-turn kill with priest may be the way out, to play around his 4 Flamehearts.
Getting a minion (turtle? lightspawn?) out and buffing it to 45 attack or so with double Divine Spirit + Inner Fire

Just a theory: You want to keep Moira alive. In order to do this, you have to work through unstable ghoul, abom etc. which's aoe would kill her, but you also need some tempo.

 

So, how about a Priest deck with Crazed Alchemist, and Silences in it?

In the worst case scenario, you can still heal Moira with your own Hero Power. Also, swapping Moira's attack on turn 2 considerably slows down the pace of the game. Then, you could include some high health minions and use the casual Inner Fire plus "make the minion's attack equal to its health" combo. :)

Just a theory: Crazed Alchemist

God, yes! Thank you, I already knew I should do the exact same thing, but with clockworks and spare parts; This would be so much easier, the OG Alchemist haven't even crossed my mind!

 

Upd: killed him on my second try with a pretty basic priest deck. It's far from perfect, but as long as you draw the combo, the rest of the deck doesn't matter too much. Only had 1 alchemist, it turned out; I'd gladly swap a shrinkmeister for another one, and probably add two Pains instead of Rivendare and one of the Lightspawns. Silences wouldn't hurt, but if Moira is at 3 (and since you can heal) they are not essential anymore. Lightwells\Cultists would probably work really well as well.

Its just so much easier than the warrior.

If someone asked me for a deck that worked, I'd probably come up with something like this. That's just my $0.02 anyway wink.png

I have his entire Heroic list, I came up with an awesome Priest deck to take him all the way to fatigue. It's so easy, it's ridiculous tongue.png I'll post it shortly.

So, here's the deck: https://www.icy-veins.com/hearthstone/cheap-emperor-thaurissan-priest-deck-heroic-mode

It's pretty similar to the deck Kejim posted earlier and as such works in a similar way smile.png

I also updated the Thaurissan guide to include the complete card list (killed him with Fatigue with my Priest deck).

Turns out i was pretty much on the spothappy.png, though I never got even close to fatiguing him. Second Death's Bite, heh? The guy sure hates his wife. A logical last card though, as far as symmetry goes.
 

Any reason you skipped Crazy Alchemists, aside from making a deck with no neutral cards whatsoever? Seems really potent for this encounter; at turn 2 you're making Moira immune to all his AoE, plus effectively heal yourself for 2 each turn for the rest of the game.

I don't really have a reason. I made the deck and it turns out that by the time I was done with Priest cards, I had reached the 30-card limit, so I decided to give it a go and it worked so well, that I didn't really think of changing anything.

I managed to beat him on HC mode with this Priest deck. Fun thing is that after killing both him and he's wife Nafarian comes out and gives a comment like "Impressive adventurer, you managed to kill both dwarfs".

 

I liked the deck. Had my lightwell up on 45++ life but never did draw Inner Focus. Also PWS is pretty important if you go many rounds.

This is the cheapest deck I beat Heroic Emperor Thaurissan with.

To beat Thaurissan you have to protect Moira. Thaurissan himself will deal a lot of damage to her via Abomination, Unstable Ghoul and Death's Bite.
Simply buffing her health will not suffice, because her repetitive damage will kill you eventually. Playing taunts will kill Moira. There is no way to deal with this problem using only a basic deck.

Cheap Priest (160 Dust)
Difficulty: hard (may take more than 10 tries)
Inspiration:


Similar, yet more expensive deck: https://www.icy-veins.com/hearthstone/cheap-emperor-thaurissan-priest-deck-heroic-mode

2x Silence
2x Holy Smite
2x Inner Fire
2x Northshire Cleric
2x Power Word: Shield
2x Voodoo Doctor
2x Acidic Swamp Ooze
2x Divine Spirit
2x Murloc Tidehunter
2x Shadow Word: Pain
2x Shadow Word: Death
2x Stormwind Knight
2x Gurubashi Berserker
2x Holy Nova
2x Boulderfist Ogre

The original idea was to use Crazed Alchemist to swap Moiras stats and buff her health to keep her safe from friendly fire. Instead I included different and cheaper cards, which will be similarly effective.
Use Inner Fire to debuff Moira, then buff her health with Power Word: Shield.
Silence Thaurissan's deathrattle minions, especially Abomination.
Use your several low-cost minions to fight for board control.
Use Voodoo Doctor as an emergency heal for Moira.
Use Acidic Swamp Ooze to destroy Death's Bite only, if Moira is out of danger!
Play Gurubashi Berserker on turn 5 and buff it with Divine Spirit later on.
Play Boulderfist Ogre on turn 6.
Be aware that Thaurissan will likely play Flamestrike on turn 7.

 

Cheerio,

Bob

Are you referring to our guides or the guy that posted above? 

I don't think that the post is to be taken seriously as not a single one of all the decks posted in this thread features any BrM card.

With the coming of TGT I recommend using Power word:glory in the place of silence on the heroic mode of emperor thaurissan with priest. Moira will be healing you for 1 everytime she attacks.

Hey, thanks for the great info!

 

Beat the Emperor on Normal difficulty using your Mage deck after only one try....

 

I tried many times before this, but since I am now subject to the Mac no-deck-modification bug (this arose after the last HS update, about four-five days ago), it's impossible for me to modify my decks as I would like to.  So, I just deleted my entire Mage deck, and rebuilt it with your suggested list. 

 

It worked great.  Keep up the good work!

Power Word: Glory and Convert are great options here. I beat him by taking a copy of his wife, buffing it with all the priest spells, then forcing her to slap her husband to death.

has this changed on normal mode? Im on 20 losses and 0 wins on normal mode using the basic mage deck you listed.....he fills the board with axe throwers so fast that you cant keep the board clear without killing yourself and if you try to go face on him he just clears your minions with his and has many more low cost cards it seems than your basic mage deck, his side of board is full by turn 6 every game.

You don't get free cards in expansions. This is why you are stuck with the same cards and decks. Also, none of the listed cards got nerfed. Additionally, adventure bosses don't change (except for Majordomo skip bug). The decks can stay the same because your opponent doesn't evolve with the meta. Last time I tried it worked.

 

If the deck doesn't work for you, try building your own by following the general tips (eg. no taunts, AoEs). Very strong class for this boss is priest with the new Power Word: Glory.

Are you sure it didn't change? He plays his AoE taunts back to back in rounds 2 and 3 so the board fills up before there are enough crystals to play the card to silence them. And the AoE taunts target anything that gets put down so I don't know how it's possible to build armor without them killing the female dwarf

      The latest update to Hearthstone comes with optimizations to improve performance while playing Battlegrounds on devices with fewer than 2GB of RAM, some balance changes, and various game fixes.
      The team is overall happy with how Battlegrounds were received and there will be new heroes and minions live within the game with the next update.
      The developers are also working on an advanced stats screen, leaderboard updates, and allowing minions to be sold directly from your hand (coming early next year).
      Check out our Battlegrounds guide to learn more about the new mode!
      Blizzard (Source)
      Hi all,
      We’re in the process of releasing a new update, which is now live on PC and rolling out over the next few hours on mobile operating systems. This update contains a variety of optimizations to improve performance when playing Battlegrounds, especially on devices with fewer than 2GB of RAM. Please note that players on devices with lower memory may still experience degraded performance.
      As a note for iOS users, please ensure you have updated to the latest version of iOS to receive the greatest performance increase from these optimizations.
      There were some balance changes that we identified based on our initial testing that didn’t quite make it in for release, so we’re making those live with today’s update.
      Balance Changes
      Minions Mama Bear Changed from 5/5 giving +5/+5 to 4/4 giving +4/+4 Kangor’s Apprentice Changed from 4/8 to 3/6 Hero Powers Infinite Toki Temporal Tavern Changed from 1 cost to 2 and now reads “Refresh Bob’s Tavern. Add a minion from a higher Tavern Tier.” King Mukla Bananarama Changed to “Passive Hero Power: Whenever you buy a beast, add a Banana to your hand.” Lord Jaraxxus Bloodfury Hero power changed from 3 cost to 2. Game Fixes & Improvements
      Squelch now works as intended + no longer causes crashes under certain circumstances Daily Quests can now be rerolled Hallow’s End Arena Daily Quest can now be completed A variety of Android crashes have been fixed Memory optimization for Battlegrounds for devices with less than 2GB of RAM We’re aiming to make updates fairly regularly – every month or so, or perhaps a little faster. We’ll have more information on future updates over the next few weeks.
      While I’m here, I wanted to talk a bit about Battlegrounds and what we’re seeing and feeling since we launched in beta last week.
      Overall, we’ve been thrilled by the response players have had to Battlegrounds, and we’ve been closely watching the feedback coming in. We’re continuing to work on a variety of things coming in the future, but I’d like to call out to a few of them. Please note all of this is future-looking – none of this is getting added quite yet.
      New Heroes and Minions!
      We’ve been cooking up some new heroes and minions, and we’ll be making them live within the game with our next update. We don’t want to say too much right now, but a couple of very familiar faces will be included.
      Stats!
      We know the amount of gameplay information that informs how players are performing is limited right now, and we are already hard at work on an advanced stats screen that will be available in the next update. We’ll have much more detail soon, but expect things like your top 5 heroes by wins, most played heroes, how many first place finishes you’ve completed, and more.
      Leaderboard Updates
      We want to give players more useful information about their opponents so they can make more informed gameplay decisions and build more complex strategies. On the left-hand leaderboard we’re going to be adding some addition information on the minion types that your opponents have. For example, you’ll be able to see that one of your opponents currently holds three murlocs and two demons.
      The Selling Experience
      We want to make some improvements to how minions are sold, allowing minions to be sold from your hand. We think this will make it into the game some time early next year, and we’ll have more updates on how that is progressing, especially if we think it will come later than January.
      Open Beta begins tomorrow, Tuesday, Nov. 12th @ 10am PT! We hope to see you all in the Tavern!

      The realm of Azeroth ties many of us together, across languages, continents, and across Hearthstone, Warcraft, and World of Warcraft. For the past 25 years, we’ve experienced countless stories and victories brought to us by these games, and now Hearthstone would like to join in on the anniversary celebration.

      Beginning 10 a.m. PT November 13, and lasting through 10 a.m. PT November 27, players who log into Hearthstone will be able to claim two free Golden cards inspired by the epic struggle between Horde and Alliance.

      Be sure to log in before November 27th! We’ll see you in the tavern!

      Some players were experiencing issues after matches have concluded, and as a result, Tavern Brawl has been temporarily disabled. They're planning to bring it back tomorrow.
      Blizzard (Source)
      We’ve temporarily disabled the Tavern Brawl mode and expect it to return tomorrow, Thursday the 14th. Some players were encountering some issues after matches have concluded, and these were serious enough that we wanted to take the mode down entirely.
      We’re planning to bring the mode back tomorrow and will be rotating in a different Tavern Brawl for the rest of the week. We’ll provide an update at that time to let everyone know that the mode has been enabled again and give you a heads up of what Tavern Brawl we’ve rotated in.
