cheap deck with 3 legendaries in it? trolls? xD

Dear Matze. The 3 legendaries that you are referring to, are the cards that the boss has in his deck: Alexstrassa, Nozdormu, Onyxia.

 

The decks to counter them are at the bottom of the page, where 2 decks with 0 legendaries (that has to be crafted or opened from packs) are included, along with a heroic mode druid deck for the people who has access to more cards.

 

Troll? :P

I used quite a similar deck. The main damage dealer was the Flamewaker! It's a great addition. And with low attack on it's own, it wasn't a priority for the AI biggrin.png

 

Added some silence as well.

Worked for me. Didn't have one Cabal and the Light bomb but used Holy fire (which gave me the deciding 5 damage!) and Temple Enforcer in stead. Took about 15 tries though :-)

Yeah, the Boss is hard work, numerous tries is to be expected, I will continue the quest for a deck with close to 100% consistency, but it might be tricky. I have won 4/6 times with the Priest deck myself, but it is a challenge that requires more than simply the right deck to beat.

I seriously doubt you won 4/6 with the priest deck without conceding for a decent hand multiple times. The priest deck may win eventually but it's a very low percentage. every game I've gotten Deathlord out he either has that bitch ass 2/3 out and i have no way to deal with it or he keeps dropping minions faster than I can heal it and no inner fire, even with divine spirit.

Won with the mage deck. It needs some tries but when you get a good starting hand it's doable. Probably the hardest boss (BrM) so far!

Follow up to my post. The strategy that works best with this match-up is: Get out KT ASAP with a taunt minion and abuse the AI. Otherwise you need a little luck and a great draw with priest deck.

 

I think a reliable, good, cheap deck might be Druid with innervates, wild growth, dryad, cheap taunters (maybe even target dummy) and KT with a little buffing and healing potential. Throw in BGH and Naturalize to help your staying power and just get KT out + Taunt

Well the "Low-Budget" mage deck is definitely trolling ...if 6 epics and 1 Legendary adding for an over 4k dust deck called "low-budget" is not trolling, i'm not sure what is! laugh.png

 

I wonder how much would a "hi-budget" cost by that author. biggrin.png

Well, let your wondering cease, if you click the other link in the guide, you'll see a full budget guide that costs twice as much! The horror!

I've tired all 3 decks that you suggest & zero success with them all. There has to be a easier way to defeat w/o losing my mind or making me want to through my pc out the window.

Won first try with this deck. Granted I was drawing perfectly, but berserker was so buffed up when I won. He had 15 attask and finished him off quickly.

This is the cheapest deck I beat Heroic Chromaggus with.

Chromaggus will fill your hand with expensive and nasty spells you have to get rid of eventually. Getting a discount on your spells or all of your cards will help a lot.
You can ignore Brood Affliction Green completely until you have stabilised and want to start to deal damage to Chromaggus.
You can keep Brood Affliction Red for a while and sustain the damage in order to stabilize your board. Get rid of it, when you reach 10 HP.
You can keep Brood Affliction Black for a turn, as it is no immediate threat.
You should get rid of Brood Affliction Blue quite soon, as the discount Chromaggus gets on his spells is very strong (Flamestrike for 4 mana, Flameheart for 0!) and a great danger for your minions and your HP.
You need to get rid of Brood Affliction Bronze immediately, because you absolutely need to keep board control and cannot allow Chromaggus to fill his board with dragons.
Chromaggus' minions will almost always ignore yours, if they cannot kill them without dying themselves. With his Chromatic Dragonkin however he tends to be more defensive.

Cheap Naxx Priest (80 Dust)
Difficulty: medium (may take up to 10 tries)
Inspiration:



2x Goldshire Footman
2x Inner Fire
2x Mind Vision
2x Murloc Raider
2x Northshire Cleric
2x Power Word: Shield
2x Zombie Chow
2x Bluegill Warrior
2x Divine Spirit
2x Frostwolf Grunt
2x Murloc Tidehunter
2x Shadow Word: Pain
2x Deathlord
2x Shadow Word: Death
1x Emperor Thaurissan
1x Kel'Thuzad

This deck has lots of 1- and 2-drops, as it tries to control the board early while still being able to get rid of the Affliction cards as soon as possible.
You have several ways to win this fight:
Use Mind Vision to steal Chromatic Dragonkin. Chromaggus will ignore it and his spells with continuously buff it.
Play Emperor Thaurissan on turn 6 and keep him alive to get a discount on the Affliction cards.
Play Deathlord and buff it with Divine Spirit and Inner Fire.
Put Kel'Thuzad next to a taunt.
 

Cheerio,

Bob

Thank you for the priest deck with basic cards! First try and he was down! biggrin.png

This boss is no fun. Just what the hell were blizzard thinking when adding Nozdormu at all, let alone put it in here.

Boss plays Nozdormu, never get another turn, GG. That is not gameplay...

The deck probably works btw. I got a priest too with focus on stuff like lightwarden, holy champion and heals. With Thaurissan for discount. That works too except for the Nozdormu bug.

Guys I tried these decks and couldn't keep the cards out of my hands. Then it hit me. Why not use the cards to play? I used a mana ramp druid with summoning stone and beat him my first try. Just get the summoning stone out and summon minions as you discard the crap he gives you. WIN!

Could you possibly post your deck? This seems like a fun deck and im just very unlucky with the priest deck. Please and thank you!

So, my Chromagus gets out Nozdormu every single time, especially when he feels I ma winning (with my KT out on the board..... even if I manage to kill it somehow, voila.. he plays out another copy of it... I mean seriously..

Otherwise I think the priest would work. I'll keep on trying :-/

Against Heroic Chromaggus, a variation of the featured mage deck worked for me on my 5th attempt.

 

cRCgsIf.png

 

I lacked six cards from the suggested decklist:

1x Unstable Portal

1x Big Game Hunter

1x Alexstrasza

2x Mountain Giant

1x Molten Giant

 

I replaced them with:

1x Ironbeak Owl

2x Flamewaker

1x Spellbreaker

2x Summoning Stone

 

I feel that the silences made a valuable addition as a means to neutralize a couple of the 4x Chromatic Dragonkin. I included the Summoning Stones after reading about the brilliant idea of letting Chromaggus's Brood Affliction spells work for you by summoning minions. Alas, this was proven to be an ineffective strategy, simply due to the fact that they cost too much at 5 mana. During the matches in which I had one in my hand, I never played it because I always had more important things to spend my mana on. The Summoning Stones played no part in winning with this deck.

 

Sorcerer's Apprentice is key! Getting at least one of these out early helps tremendously. For some reason, Chromaggus doesn't consider them a threat. He tends to prefer hitting you in the face.

Normal Mode - used Paly-Murloc deck, got him on the first try


 


***You have to kill the Chromatic Dragonkin as soon as possible** Every time you burn the (1) card or use any spell, they gain attack/health and become impossible to deal with.


 


2X Murloc Tinyfin


2X Blessing of Might


2X Humility


2X Grimscale Oracle


2X Murloc Raider


2X Bilefin Tidehunter


2X Bluegill Warrior


2X Murloc Tidehunter


1X Aldor Peacekeeper


1X Coldlight Oracle


2X Truesilver Champion


2X Blessing of Kings


2X Consecration


2X Hammer of Wrath


2X Murloc Knight


2X Anyfin Can Happen

      Iksar has confirmed that the Matchmaking in Legend Ranks has been changed.
      As stated in our previous article, Legendary players have been noticing that in the last few days that they have been matched with players much closer to their own rank than usual. There was some confusion regarding this, as Iksar had not been made aware of the changes, but he has now confirmed that there are definitely changes in place.
      It is hard to precisely evaluate community feeling on the the new system, especially as I personally think they're a step in the right direction, but there are some players who are not keen on the changes. RayC and Xzirez have been the two highest profile players so far to disagree with the change. The issues that people against it have can be summarised as follows: Counter-Queuing: Many top Legends do not like counter-queuing, which is where you change your deck to try to counter your opponent. With the new system meaning you can often play the same person several times in a row, counter-queuing will become an important part of the game.
      Early Legend Advantage: People opposed to the changes claim that it overly favours the players who reach Legend early on. The older system made it easier to catch up at the end of the season.
      Win Trading: Due to the increased chance of playing against the same opponent, it is now easier to cover your tracks if you lose to a friend many times in a row to boost their ranking.
      There does seem to be a majority of players who support the new system however. The ladder system has been a cause of much debate for a long time now, and these changes, alongside the recent addition of ladder floors, seem to show that at the very least, ladder is currently a high priority for Blizzard to get right.

      The Hearthstone Championship Tour continues this weekend, with the focus shifting to the Asia-Pacific region. In this article I have introduced some of the players, and listed their deck archetypes.
      The APAC region is often regarded as the weakest region, and with some justification. However, although the region lacks a little in depth, the best players are definitely world class. Not only that, but the rest of the pack is rapidly improving, and it would be very negligent to ignore the region in 2017. Staz, from The Philippines recently won the $150,000 first prize at a stacked WESG, which marked the first major tournament won by the region. The top players will be looking to keep the rest of the world on notice, with some high quality play this weekend.
      Below I have listed a few of the key players, along with notes and deck archetypes.
        CaraCute: Tempo Mage, Aggro Rogue, Aggro Shaman, Pirate Warrior
      CaraCute has been touted by both NeilYo and Staz as having a good chance, and since those comments were made, she has come through the Tavern Hero Qualifier to take her place in the main Swiss. She learned her trade at Guildhouse Fireside gatherings, the same Fireside gatherings where caster Jia Dee also rose through the ranks.
        Che0nsu: Jade Druid, Miracle Rogue, Mid Shaman, Pirate Warrior
      Che0nsu made his name by first winning the Last Call qualifier, and then building on that to finish top four in the World Championship at BlizzCon. 
        ChongGEr: Reno Mage, Aggro Shaman, Reno Warlock, Reno Warrior
      ChongGer is one of the most consistent performers in the South-East Asia scene. He came fourth in the Singapore Major, third in the Thai Major, and second in the Malaysia Major, where he lost two matches in the final to a player he had already beaten in the upper bracket! He also placed consistently high in the preliminaries last year. 
         GundamFlame: Tempo Mage, Aggro Rogue, Aggro Shaman, Pirate Warrior
      GundanFlame impressed observers in the Japan Summer Championship with his understanding of aggressive play. His understanding of when to ease off the pedal, and when to go all-in, won him the national title. It is no surprise that his lineup for the Playoffs is an aggressive one.

        HandomeGuy (pictured above): Aggro Rogue, Aggro Shaman, Reno Warlock, Pirate Warrior
      HandsomeGuy is regarded as the man to beat whenever he steps foot in an APAC tournament. He finished in second place in the APAC Winter Championship, and that proved to be his worst result, as he went on to win both the Spring and Summer Championships.
        Kranich: Reno Mage, Aggro Shaman (shown below), Reno Warlock, Dragon Warrior
      Kranich played in both the 2014, and 2015 World Championships, finishing top four and top eight respectively. Due to this, and the fact that he was a member of Team Dignitas before they withdrew from Hearthstone, he is one of the best known APAC players in the West. He is not scared to put his own stamp on decks, his RenoLock contains Doomguard and Krul the Unshackled, while his Shaman deck is slower than most Aggro Shamans, and leans towards midrange.

        NaviOOT: Reno Mage, Aggro Shaman, Reno Warlock, Pirate Warrior
      NaviOOT has built a strong reputation on the back of relentless top 100 finishes, and a consistently popular stream. In recent months he has turned his attention more and more to the tournament scene, making the trip to the Malaysia Open, in which he placed top 8. He has also stated that he will be travelling to DreamHack Austin, which is coming up soon. He managed top four at last Winter's APAC Championship, and is a genuine contender in 2017.
       Pinpingho: Tempo Mage, Mid Shaman, Reno Warlock, Water Warrior
      Pinpingho finished top eight in the 2015 World Championship. He was known for being one of the strongest Shaman players, back before Shaman was regarded as a playable class, so it will be interesting to see how a does now! He qualified for two APAC Championship events in 2016, and so is no stranger to these events.
        Surrender: Reno Mage, Aggro Shaman, Reno Warlock, Pirate Warrior
      Although he is yet to have a big win, Surrender is highly regarded in the community and has numerous good results. He already had Xixo as a playtest partner, and has recently joined Counter Logic Gaming, along with Xixo and Hoej. He will be as well prepared as anyone for this event.
        Tom60229: Reno Mage, Aggro Shaman, Reno Warlock, Pirate Warrior
      One of the most accomplished players in the field, Tom60229 has shown consistent results since the dawn of Hearthstone. His most recent tournament win was the Malaysia Major, but also had good success on the 2015 ONOG Tour. His worldwide tournament experience will stand him in good stead in this event.
       
      The event begins at 3am CET on Saturday 25 February, and coverage will be on the official PlayHearthstone Twitch channel.

      For the past few days, top players have been discussing the pros and cons of the new MMR change at Legend Ranks. The only problem being, that Game Designer, Iksar, isn't aware of a change.
      There are far fewer Legendary players than usual this season, and as such things might feel a little different to the players, but the sample size across many streams and thousands of games of Hearthstone seems to point to the changing of the matchmaking system. It has been accepted by most that the system has changed so that you only play opponents in a very narrow band, rather than the previous system where you could be matched with someone with a wildly different Legend Rank.
      That alone might not have been enough evidence, but players are also queuing into the same opponent multiple times, to the point that they are having to play mind games on which deck to queue.

      Hoej independently witnessed the same thing, and went to Twitter to check that he was not alone. Several Legendary players agreed that the system has been changed, and people began to discuss what they thought of the changes.
      Placeholder for tweet 834430686325067776 The majority of players like the new matchmaking, although several did voice concerns that the new system heavily favours the players who reach Legend Rank early in the season. Just as the debate was getting interesting, Iksar dropped his bombshell:
        At this point there are several options, and all seem unlikely. Either the entire community is suffering from some kind of huge matchmaking fluctuation, Blizzard have made a major change without informing Iksar, or there is a bug which most people preferred to the actual game. Whatever happens, the reply when Iksar has investigated is sure to be interesting!

      Blizzard have announced that the next update will contain big changes to the way Arena works.
      The newly announced changes will come into force at the same time as the nerfs to Small-Time Buccaneer and Spirit Claws, which we discussed previously.
      The most important change will be that Arena will change from Wild format to Standard. This will help to keep Arena feeling fresh, as well as make sure that card synergies can be drafted more easily.
      Changes have also been made to the distribution of cards. Common and Basic cards will show up less often, and the frequency of spells and class cards being offered has been raised. The full discussion can be found in the announcement link above, but the main reasoning is to allow players to have more opportunities to outdraft and outplay their opponents, rather than just playing the game on curve.
      This philosophy will have some implications in Standard too. If Blizzard are actively trying to reduce the impact of playing on curve in Arena, this could mean that they will carry over the same thoughts into constructed play. I feel that moving away from the style, unaffectionately known as Curvestone, would be good for the game. The changes will almost certainly be welcomed in the Arena community, and it is good to see Blizzard making them now, rather than waiting for the next set to launch.

      Im making a telegram bot that can send you new decks and news from https://www.icy-veins.com/hearthstone.
      It already can send some decks and filter them by class and deck format.
      Im going to open bot for all users in next few weeks. 
      Any suggestions?
