Got him with this, kel'thusad+sunwalker are definitely the MVPs. Got Sunwalker out, then KT, then mindcontrolled his Lord of the Arena - from then on, just crushed all my stuff against his, clearing and refreshing divine shields.

Any tough\renewable taunt would work wonders here, i suppose.

Priest with mind control is your best friend. Just wrecked him. Mind Control acts as a removal and gives you his minion to use next turn. I managed to get both MC's in my first two hands or so and killed him like turn 3. No need for legendaries.

Yes, that can happen, but it won't happen every time. As mentioned in the guide, he doesn't simply Twisting Nether a 1 minion board when you have KT down, so you have time to build up a board and gain an advantage. If he does eventually Twisting Nether your big KT board, hopefully you will have gained enough initiative to still close the game out. This fight is a lot more RNG dependant than some in the expansion, so unfortunately you just have to keep trying.

In my opinion there's a big flaw to the technique with KT in this match. The Kidnappers keep messing with your game no matter what, even if you got him behind 3 taunts, he combos a Kidnapper and everything goes straight to hell there

There's 2 Kidnappers in the deck, and in my experience, the AI's draw is heavily weighted to have one early (this is a recurring theme with the boss fights, they seem to be tilted towards specific opening hands), so the chances of the Kidnapper coming down against your KT is quite small. Twisting Nether is a much bigger concern in my experience.

I've managed to get KT in my opening hand maybe eight times (with many, many Concedes in between), and every single time he's either gotten kidnapped or destroyed with Drakkisath's command. It's pretty frustrating. I'm going to try Priest with KT and Sunwalker and Mind Control and see if that's better.

I just killed him in a way that I didn't even thought I could. I've built a deck with big cards and among them, Majordomo Executus. First try.. he used mindgames and Majordomo showed up on his side of the board. I've killed him and the big boss with 50hp+30armor became Ragnaros, an 8hp minion very easy to deal with.

These are the cheapest decks I beat Heroic General Drakkisath with.

Drakkisath's Hero Power: The cost of all cards are set to 1 mana. You only have 1 mana crystal every turn, Drakkisath has 2. Though you can play any high costed card on turn 1, due to the card restriction combined plays are much harder and even more luck dependant. With only basic cards you have trick the AI or you are going to lose.
Win condition 1: Drakkisath has Mind Games in his deck. You can abuse it by putting Majordomo Executus into your deck. Should Drakkisath copy Majordomo, kill it instantly and deal with Ragnaros' 8 hp as soon as possible. To raise the propability for this rather unlikely event the number of minions in your deck has to be reduced drastically.
Win condition 2: Play Sludge Belcher on turn 1, followed by Kel'Thuzad, then hope for no Drakkisath's Command, Kidnapper or double Flamestrike.

low-budget Priest vs Heroic Drakkisath... a major fluke!

 

6dyigRH.png

 

I defeated General Drakkisath on my 3rd attempt, using only four legendaries (KT; Rend; Onyxia; Maexxna). As you can see from the green Z's, I did not even get KT out until the very last turn, nor did I play Onyxia. I don't have a glamorous tale of victory, but I do have a strange one... This is indeed the faultiest AI I have encountered. I owe my win to the questionable tactics of Drak. Both Kidnappers returned his own minion to his hand, even though I had a minion on the board. My minion was a Force-Tank MAX. It was as if my minion had stealth! I was shocked, but delighted that he would choose to set himself back a turn, twice. That wasn't the strangest part though... He topped the kidnapper confusion by casting Drakkisath's Command on his own minion, even though I had a minion in play. My minion was Master Jouster, but he chose to destroy his own Tank-Force MAX. I was flabbergasted, to say the least. Evidently he saw his Tank-Force MAX as more of a threat than my 5/6 Jouster...? These ridiculous plays by Drak enabled me to mount a defense that took him all the way to fatigue before dealing the final blow. I will not bother including a decklist, because it doesn't matter. I should not have won.

I had tried so many decks before I found this one. I ended up winning the first time using sylvanas on his lord of the arena and then dropped KT and just used sylvanas to clear his side of the board and the rest to defeat him.

Mage with mirror entity on first hand works amazing, use his high entry card against him.  Drop a few high levels in like core hound or war golem, with a fireball or sheep just in case.  I have big nukes, but rarely needed them.  Won in 6 rds.

      Ever since the announcement of the Hearthstone Masters system, the details on the final tier - Hearthstone Grandmasters - have been a mystery. However, Tom Matthiesen from Inven Global has released some info on its format, prize pool and invited players.
      According to Inven Global, Hearthstone Grandmasters will have a league structure. It will consist of two seasons per year, with each season lasting eight weeks. Each region will have 16 players, who will be divided into two groups of eight. Europe and the Americas seem to be paired together, while it's not defined how Hearthstone Grandmasters will work for other regions.
      Inven has even acquired the names of 15 European participants and 13 from the Americas. They are all well-known pro players like Bunnyhoppor, Pavel, Thijs, Kolento, RDU, Firebat, Muzzy, Dog, Purple and more! The last four players will be determined by the results of the upcoming World Championship.
      Participants will play twice a week, facing off against each other in a double round-robin system. Hearthstone Grandmasters conclude with global finals. After the two seasons have ended, the two players who performed worst in season 2 in their respective region will be demoted and no longer play in Hearthstone Grandmasters.
      As far as the compensation of the players is concerned, each of them will earn $1,000 per week as an appearance fee. For each match won, another $500 is given to the participating players. The prize pool of the global finals is said to be $500,000. It's highly likely there'll be more rewards per seasonal performance.
      Hearthstone Grandmasters is set to start soon after the Hearthstone World Championships have concluded. Blizzard is expected to share these details sometime next week.

      This is a brand new Constructed Tavern Brawl.
      In Battle of the Bans, you pick a class and you initially make a deck of four cards. Your opponent bans one of them and then your deck is filled with copies of the remaining three cards.
      The "ban phase" happens after the mulligan but before turn one, and will show 3 of your opponent's cards plus a mystery card. If you pick the mystery card to ban, it will be revealed to you. If you have copies of the card your opponent chose to ban in your hand, they will be replaced randomly by your 3 other cards.
      To keep things balanced, the following cards have been banned from Battle of Bans: Jade Idol, Ice Block, Time Out!, Patches the Pirate and Whizbang the Wonderful.
      The concept of this Tavern Brawl is very interesting. Not only do you need to pick the proper cards that work well together, you also have to keep into account that one of them will get banned. In turn, you also need to be smart with your ban choice.
      This Brawl is very similar to Top 3: one of the decks that is really consistent in both of these Brawls is Mech Hunter with Metaltooth Leaper. Jade Shaman seems to be doing well as you get to summon even larger men every consecutive turn. Discardlock is reportedly performing very solidly, as well. A really strong counter-deck includes Holy Wrath and Shirvallah, the Tiger.
      As far as bans are concerned, since this Brawl seems to favour aggro decks in general, make sure to ban any taunts your opponent has. Alternatively, you can try a spell-based Mage or Priest deck.
      Feel free to share the decks that worked for you in the comments!

      To ensure the integrity of Hearthstone esports, Blizzard has banned the two Taiwanese players who were previously accused of wintrading and stream sniping.
      As a reminder, Roger and Reall were caught wintrading on April 2018. Moreover, the Chinese Taipei team, consisting of 2018 World Champion tom60229, Roger, Shaxy and Reall, was caught streamsniping during the Hearthstone Global Games and were consequently disqualified.
      Due to these events, there were several protests about Roger being crowned Winter Champion a month ago and qualifying for the this year's World Championship. Blizzard feels that Roger earned his Championship spot legitimately.
      However, Roger and Reall will not be allowed to participate in Hearthstone Grandmasters in 2019. The Grandmasters tier is the highest one in the revamped system for Hearthstone esports; it is still not known how exactly Grandmasters is going to work.
      Here is the full message regarding Roger and Reall:
      u/BlizzMilkfat
      Hi all – Sam Braithwaite, Senior Global Franchise Lead for Hearthstone esports here. As we prepare for the 2019 HCT World Championship, I wanted to take the opportunity to address the community’s feedback about one of our professional players, Luo "Roger" Shengyuan, who recently won the HCT Winter Championship.
      In Oct. 2018, during the Hearthstone Global Games, we discovered that team Chinese Taipei, which included Roger, tom60229, Shaxy, and Reall had violated the rules to gain a competitive advantage. In response, we administered the penalty outlined in the rules at the time, and disqualified team Chinese Taipei from the competition.
      But previously, in April 2018, allegations of Roger and Reall participating in win-trading had surfaced. After an investigation, we discovered their involvement in the incident but did not issue any official warning in response to their rule violation due to an internal miscommunication.
      We now realize that our previous rules around these scenarios and our enforcement of them did not meet the standards of our community. We take full responsibility for this. Moving forward, we will be reevaluating our rules for the 2019 season and are committed not only to improving, but also to being more transparent about the way we administer warnings, penalties, and rulings.
      Our failure should not diminish Roger’s accomplishments. He earned his championship at HCT Winter and his spot at the upcoming HCT 2019 World Championship on his own merit and in compliance with the official HCT competition ruleset.
      While Roger and Reall may still compete in Hearthstone Masters Qualifiers and Masters Tour events, due to having two rule violations last year, they will not be invited to the inaugural year of Hearthstone Grandmasters. Grandmasters will be the highest level of competitive Hearthstone, and its competitors will be held to higher standards, not just in performance, but also in conduct.
      Thank you for all your feedback, your support, your patience, and understanding. Hearthstone esports wouldn’t be what it is without you, and I look forward to hearing your thoughts as we prepare to embark on a new chapter of Hearthstone esports in just a few short months.

      What a tournament lined up for Blizzard at World Cyber Games 2019 in Xi'an.
      They got Hearthstone up and Warcraft 3 is finally back. Too bad Reforged won't be making it back in time. Hopefully when Warcraft 3: Reforged is out we will be seeing more tournaments with Warcraft competitions.
      You can even see the excitement of these games posting the official registrations on their twitter,
      for WC3:
      Hearthstone: https://twitter.com/HSesports/status/1105247640646754304
      Who knows maybe even one day we will get some Diablo tournaments if that is possible. Blizzard can host their own event as well with so many of their games having a great esports scene already.
