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: 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 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!

      The details for this year's Hallow's End festivities have been revealed.
      As already known from update 12.2, Hallow's End will return from October 17 until October 31. During that time, upon logging in you will receive a free Golden Witch's Cauldron and a free Arena ticket.
      You can use that ticket to enter the Dual Class Arena event. You will choose a Hero, then the Hero Power of another Hero and you will make a deck consisting of both Heroes' class cards and neutral cards. If you have an Arena run in progress when Hallow’s End begins on October 17, then it will be retired and you’ll receive the normal rewards for the number of wins you achieved and a free Arena ticket.
      We'll have two Tavern Brawls during Hallow's end. During the first week (October 17-22), there will be a new Tavern Brawl called Monster Smash. You will get randomly assigned one of six Monster Hunt villains with a premade deck. The other Tavern Brawl (October 24-29) is the one we saw last year as well, The Headless Horseman Rides Again!
      Lastly, the new Paladin Hero, Sir Annoy-o, will be available as a bundle along with 20 Witchwood card packs. The pricing of the bundle is still unknown.

      When you start an Arena run during Hallow’s End, you’ll choose a Hero, then a Hero Power, and the cards offered in your picks will feature cards from BOTH of those classes, in addition to neutral cards. And don’t forget, you’ll get a free Arena ticket just for logging in, so there’s no excuse not to attend the party!
       
      TWO Tricky Tavern Brawls!
      Monster Smash is a special Hallow’s End Tavern Brawl that will run from October 17 to Oct. 22.
       
      Wise monster hunters avoid the haunted wood during Hallow’s End, so the creepy creatures of the Witchwood are taking the opportunity to find out which among them is the strongest!

      The Headless Horseman Rides Again is a special Hallow’s End Tavern Brawl that will run from Oct. 24 to 29.
       
      The Headless Horseman has been marauding through the countryside, and it’s up to you to stop him!

Each costume has its own deck featuring cards from several classes and a passive Hero Power that you’ll need to make the most of if you want to succeed at sinking the sinister specter!

       
      Hallow! Hallow! Bundle
      While the creatures of the Witchwood stir, and townsfolk cower during the fearful fun of Hallow’s End, Sir Annoy-o remains ever undaunted! He doesn’t even know what a daunt is! Say HELLO! HELLO! HELLO! to the new Paladin Hero and add 20 The Witchwood card packs to your collection when you buy the Hallow! Hallow! Bundle.
       


       
      There’s a feast of fearsome fun to be had at the Headless Horseman’s Hallow’s End hootenanny. Don’t forget to check out a Hallow’s End Fireside Gatherings Tavern near you and get Nemsy Necrofizzle as the celebration continues!
       
      We hope you’ll join us, and we wish you a HAPPY HALLOW’S END!

       
      * NOTE: If you have an Arena run in progress when Hallow’s End begins on October 17, then it will be retired and you’ll receive the normal rewards for the number of wins you achieved and a free Arena ticket. In the hours just before the beginning and conclusion of Hallow’s End on October 17 and October 31, the ability to purchase a new Arena ticket will be temporarily disabled.
