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.

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

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

      This Mage Legendary card was revealed in collaboration with Wronchi!
      If you remember from the expansion announcement video, Hearthstone's developers were sucked into Netherstorm and it's up to Levi the intern to rescue them! As he ventures into Boom Labs, he encounters Stargazer Luna.
      The video was made by Wronchi Animations, who have created many beloved and hilarious Hearthstone cartoons. There's probably going to be a second part, so expect more card reveals!
      Now, let's talk about the card itself.

      With a Netherstorm expansion, one would expect that the magnificent Kael'thas would have been the Mage Legendary. Instead, we get Stargazer Luna which is a very interesting card with a decent statline. She can complement perfectly Aggro/Burn Mage, but you could perhaps find her in Minion-based Mage decks: mostly Murloc Mage, but maybe Elemental Mage as well. She has potentially better tempo than Aluneth, but is more risky. You obviously don't want to play her on turn 3. Let the topdeck wars begin!
      The reveal schedule is unclear at the moment, but it should go as with previous expansions: an initial reveal livestream on July 23, followed by roughly two weeks of card reveals by community sites and personalities, then a final stream before The Boomsday Project releases on August 7.

      New features include Legendary spells, the Magnetic keyword, Omega cards and Project spells.
      The second expansion of the Year of the Raven was indeed related to Netherstorm, home of the unforgettable Dr. Boom, and it's called the Boomsday Project. Apart from the new features, five cards were also revealed.
      The announcement video has an appropriate 80s science fiction movie vibe, featuring notable faces from the Hearthstone team.
      It's Goblins vs Gnomes 2.0 as the Mech tribe is definitely going to return with a vengeance! There's a new keyword called Magnetic: Magnetic minions can either be played on their own or they can be fused with a Mech minion that's on the board to add to their health, attack and ability.

      Omega cards can also be played regularly. However, if you play them at 10 Mana Crystals, you will get a powerful boost. The Battlecry assures that the OP version cannot be cheated out. Druid, the only class that can ramp its Mana up, will surely find a use for this type of minion. Curiously enough, the Omega Defender isn't a Mech, even though it definitely looks like one.

      Projects are powerful spells, that will benefit both players. Assumedly, all classes will have a Project spell. "Research" and "Weapons" Projects were teased, with the latter probably belonging to Warrior.

      We've seen all kinds of Legendary cards: minions, Quests, Weapons, Hero cards. Now it's time for Legendary Spells to make their appearance. I wonder if there are any special rules when it comes to Discovering or playing discounted versions of Legendary Spells, because they can potentially be powerful. Here's the Rogue one:

      That's all with the new features, but don't forget: The Boomsday Project isn't all about mechs and projects. It's also about science, crazy discoveries and the manipulation of elements. Under this thematic, we can find the Shaman Legendary minion:

      It's almost certain that Dr. Boom will be making a grand return for this Hearthstone Expansion; after all, he's the big boss on The Boomsday Project. He was shortly teased in the announcement video: unfortunately, this time around not all classes will be able to enjoy the Dr. Boom goodness as he looks like a Warrior card. Lord Jaraxxus will also reinvent himself as a new Warlock Hero skin: Mecha-Jaraxxus!

      According to the official announcement post, the new expansion will go live on August 7, 2018 - a week earlier than August expansions from previous years. The official site of The Boomsday Project is also up!
      The Boomsday Project will also bring along new PvE Adventure content: The Puzzle Lab! It will go live on August 21 and from the description on the official site, it looks slightly different from the Dungeon Run and the Missions. Players will have to participate in successful experiments against nine bosses. These include goals like "Lethal", which is kill the enemy in one turn; Mirror, which requires you to create a perfect copy of your opponent's board; Board Clear; and Survival, which requires you stay alive from the opponent's attacks! You will earn the following card back for completing The Puzzle Lab:

      Here is the new Boomsday board:

      The login launch reward for The Boomsday Project will be three packs and a random Class Legendary card. A card reveal livestream will be held on July 23 at 10:00 am PST on the official Hearthstone Twitch channel.
      Pre-ordering The Boomsday Project has some additional perks compared to other expansions and two different options. You can preorder the normal Bundle which will contain 50 The Boomsday Project packs, a random Golden Legendary card from the expansion and the Mecha-Jaraxxus card back. Or you can get the Mega Bundle, which contains 80 packs, a random Golden Legendary, the Mecha-Jaraxxus card back and the Mecha-Jaraxxus Warlock Hero skin.
