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.

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: http://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

      Blizzard have announced that the next Hearthstone year will be called The Year of the Mammoth. Six cards from the Classic set will be moved to a new Hall of Fame set, which can only be played in Wild.
      The announcement explains that the new Hall of Fame set will include cards that are currently in the Reward set, but the big news here is the six cards that will be leaving Standard. You can see Blizzard's reasons on the link above, but I've given a few notes in this article. Those cards are shown below.
      As well as the removed cards, there will be no adventures in 2017. Instead we will be given three full expansions that will be accompanied by a single-player mission, which will be used to enhance flavour, and offer challenges. This sounds like it will be along the lines of an adventure, but optional. I feel this is a great change, as it hurts nobody.

      Azure Drake is simply in too many decks. It is a hard card to nerf without making it weak, but it is pretty much as powerful as a 5-drop can be. Removing this to free up other 5-drops makes sense.

      The reasoning for Sylvanas is similar. Blizzard's words make a lot of sense on this one, and also give an insight into the future:
      Blizzard
      Similar to Azure Drake, it’s hard to see a card at the six mana cost out-value Sylvanas. In addition, Sylvanas has the most powerful Deathrattle effect in the game—as a comparison, the Priest card Mind Control costs 10 mana. We have exciting Deathrattle build-arounds coming soon, and in combination with Sylvanas, they would be too powerful for Standard. This seems to imply that N'Zoth, the Corruptor will be making a big comeback soon!

      I suspect a lot of people will be glad to see the back of Ragnaros. The Random element was often a contentious issue.

      The removal of Power Overwhelming is a bit of a surprise, but it seems that it has mainly been nerfed because of its strength in combinaton with cards like Leeroy Jenkins and Faceless Manipulator. I would also assume that Warlock is going to be getting some fun new toys to replace it.

      Ice Lance has been removed to remove Freeze Mage and allow new strategies to develop. It is also interesting that Blizzard mention it will allow them to make cards that copy cards. That could also apply to Power Overwhelming, so I would expect something along those lines to be in the next set.

      Conceal leaving will make sense to everyone. It allows Gadgetzan Auctioneer to survive as an interesting card, and removes the annoyance of not being able to interact with your opponent.

      This week's Tavern Brawl is called Blood Magic. It is the 88th Tavern Brawl.
      Blood Magic has a simple enough concept, which is that all spells cost Health instead of Mana. This could lead to an interesting metagame where healing is premium, and expensive burn spells are used to finish your opponent. Violet Illusionist is a key card in this Brawl, it allows the burn finish to only kill your opponent and not yourself. I expect to see it a lot over the coming days. 
      This is the third constructed Brawl in a row. It is an interesting Brawl to me, as I have felt that Blizzard have been trying to push this mechanic slowly on us over the last few expansions, but are terrified of it. In other card games, paying Health for cards has often been a broken mechanic, and I feel this might be a test to see how far they can push it.
      As always, feel free to leave your own lists in the comments.
