Little exorcist is quite the opposite of "little" in this one, this chick turns into a taunted Deathwing on just 3 mana with no combo-wombo required. Ugh, sick.

 

Beaten with a warrior (exorcists, worgens and a bunch of other minions that enrage\love taking damage+some basic cards). Maybe not guaranteed on first try, but still fairly easy.

Deck suggestion (pretty rough, can do better, but serviceable)

 

Priest with Mass Dispell surely would do better, but I just didnt have the card and I'm sure lots of other people won't have it too.

I just defeated Garr with a similar deck, that was supposed to silence the Firesworns, but I ended up abusing a different and very funny mechanic: Lightwarden summoned by Light of the Naaru. My deck:

    2x Circle of Healing
    2x Holy Smite
    2x Inner Fire
    2x Light of the Naaru
    2x Northshire Cleric
    2x Power Word: Shield
    2x Annoy-o-Tron
    2x Divine Spirit
    2x Shadow Word: Pain
    2x Acolyte of Pain
    2x Deathlord
    2x Injured Blademaster
    2x Shadow Word: Death
    2x Velen's Chosen
    2x Mass Dispel

I prefer Annoy-o-Tron over Loot Hoarder to bait out removal. This deck has already enough card draw.
With this deck you have basically 3 win conditions. I tested all of them:
1) Buffed up Deathlord.
2) Buffed up Blademaster.
3) Buffed up Lightwarden.
Works like a charm! smile.png

This is the cheapest deck I beat Heroic Garr with.

Garr's Firesworns can be dealt with in two ways: You can manipulate their health in order to let them die on different turns to prevent their deathrattle from killing you. Or you can just keep them all alive, thus shutting out Garr from the game almost completely. With only basic cards this would take enormous luck to achieve.

Cheap Priest (80 Dust)
Difficulty: easy (may take up to 5 tries)
Inspiration:


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

2x Circle of Healing
2x Goldshire Footman
2x Holy Smite
2x Mind Vision
2x Northshire Cleric
2x Power Word: Shield
2x Voodoo Doctor
2x Bloodfen Raptor
2x Divine Spirit
2x Frostwolf Grunt
2x River Crocolisk
2x Ironfur Grizzly
2x Raid Leader
2x Sen'jin Shieldmasta
2x Gurubashi Berserker

Mulligan for Circle of Healing.
Do not play Northshire Cleric before turn 3 to be able to use its effect immediately.
Play your Taunts early to lure out Rockbiter Weapon and Lava Shock and be able to safely play Gurubashi Berserker.
Keeping a Gurubashi Berserker alive and letting it be buffed by Garr's Hero Power will win you the game.
 

Cheerio,

Bob

Playing the grim patrons (x2) is another really funny and entertaining way of going about this fight (Only tried in normal mode, but it went pretty sweet)

Can I get any help with the deck? I believe its really hard to draw into cards that actually help to win against the Firesworns so can anybody tell me if its just luck of the draw? I have tried at least 11 times to beat him..

Lightwarden + Circle of Healing, and maybe a PWS for safety, gave me a super quick 'n' easy victory. That's 17 attack on turn 2, if you get a good mulligan.  Assuming you didn't kill anything, his field is locked and you can go for face, thus finishing him before any of his Firesworns go off.

After many, many attempts with the suggested deck, I also call BS that this deck can beat this boss. I'm used to Icy Veins doing a lot better with deck suggestions, in their defense, but this one is utter crap.

The Warrior deck for heroic works beautifully - lots of ways to get those minions dying on different turns.

 

However, post the warsong commander nerf I swapped out the commanders for Lil Exorcist - worked a treat.

Well, this one is working better than the mage basic deck, but I'm still trying.  Haven't really Mulliganned hard for the Circle of Healing though.  That must be it.

      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.
      Daxxarri
      It’s the Headless Horseman’s favorite time of year, and he’s returning to the Hearthstone tavern from October 17 through October 31 to host another a blowout Hallow’s End celebration for everyone! If you dare to brave a tavern decked in delightfully dreary decorations, you’ll find that your horrific host has also planned some spine-tingling treats and chilling challenges!
       
      Tempting Treats
      The Headless Horseman is handing out ghoulish goodies just for logging in! Log in between October 17 and 10 p.m. PDT on October 31 to receive a free golden Witch’s Cauldron card and an Arena ticket.

       
      The Great Hallow’s End Arena Costume Party
      During Hallow’s End you can experience dual class Arena* with an added twist: Each of the nine classic Hearthstone Heroes will be attending in costume!

       
      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! Take control of a monster from The Witchwood’s Monster Hunt single-player mission and SMASH the competition!

       
      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! You’ll go in disguise to catch the fiend by surprise—after the Brawl begins, you’ll get to Discover which costume you’ll wear. 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.
