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: http://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.

      In episode two of "What's the Move?" Aleco discusses an open-ended situation which doesn't have a clear answer.
      In episode two of "What's the Move?" Aleco discusses an open-ended situation which doesn't have a clear answer.
      We kicked off this new series by analyzing a tricky situation which had only one optimal line of play. In episode two we'll take a look at a very different kind of situation, one where there might not be a perfect move at all.
      Please let us know in the comments what you would have done in this situation! One of the primary goals of this series is to foster improvement at Hearthstone by generating discussions. We would also love to hear your feedback on the video itself, as the series is still very new and has plenty room to improve on its format.

      In the latest Hearthstone update, Blizzard made adjustments to several cards. The patch is now live now on desktop and it should become available on mobile devices in the coming hours.
      Philosophy and reasons behind these changes can be found here.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Card Changes
      Innervate now reads: Gain 1 Mana Crystal this turn only. (Down from 2)
      Fiery War Axe now costs 3 mana.  (Up from 2)
      Hex now costs 4 mana. (Up from 3)
      Murloc Warleader now reads: Your other Murlocs have +2 Attack. (Down from +2 Attack, +1 Health)
      Spreading Plague now costs 6 mana. (Up from 5)

      A new Brawl has landed in the Tavern.
      Just like with the previous expansions, it's time to try out the deck recipes of Knights of the Frozen Throne in this week's Tavern Brawl. The archetypes for each deck recipe are the following:
      Druid: I guess the best name for this deck is Midrange Druid. It has Ultimate Infestation and Spreading Plague, so... PROFIT?! Deathrattle Hunter Elemental Mage Divine Shield Paladin Control Priest (you've probably seen variations of it in ladder) Jade Deathrattle Rogue Freeze Shaman Zoolock Control Warrior with Enrage minions This is a good opportunity to try out cards that you don't own. Good luck and have fun!

      The balance patch is arriving in the beginning of the next week.
      The wait is over! The anticipated card balance changes will arrive on September 18th and hopefully freshen up the meta a little bit. As the case always is with balance patches, for the next two weeks if you disenchant Spreading Plague and/or Murloc Warleader, you will get their full value in Arcane Dust.
      Daxxarri
      In the recent Upcoming Balance Changes – Update 9.1 blog, we discussed the details and philosophy behind balance updates that are coming to several Hearthstone cards:
       
      Innervate - Now reads: Gain 1 Mana Crystal this turn only. (Down from 2) Fiery War Axe - Now costs 3 mana. (Up from 2) Hex - Now costs 4 mana. (Up from 3) Murloc Warleader - Now reads: Your other Murlocs have +2 Attack. (Down from +2 Attack, +1 Health) Spreading Plague - Now costs 6 mana. (Up from 5)
      This patch is currently targeted for September 18th PDT. Please note that updates for mobile devices may take a few additional hours to propagate.

      Once these card changes are live, players will be able to disenchant cards that are not Basic (Murloc Warleader and Spreading Plague) for their full Arcane Dust value for two weeks. Basic cards cannot be disenchanted and will not be available for an Arcane Dust refund. (source)
