You should use the decks outlined in the other boss guides for those bosses, but the OTK Priest strategy is pretty solid against a number of different bosses.

10-4 thanks for the quick reply.  I'm semi-new so I don't have too many good cards yet.

Umm, I used the standard Chinese Grinder Priest deck and the fight against Nefarian was ridiculously easy. O_o

Admitted, I had a strong Northshire Cleric start, but as soon as I had a Deathlord on the board things went VERY smoothly. I dictated the pace, put out Emperor Thaurissan and had him on the board for like 5 turns, always buffing my nearly full hand. I honestly thought I accidently started the fight in normal mode ...

After I have beaten all bosses in Heroic mode I must say, that the last wing seemed to be the easiest one: I beat every boss without abusing Kel'Thuzad. *patting my own shoulder* ;)

Which deck are you guys referring to? Because i'm 3/3 with the Priest deck, Once on NA when I was making the decks, then again when I fatigued him to get his full decklist, then again when I cleared it on my main EU account. It seems very consistent to me.

Your Mage Deck for Nefarian/Onyxia worked for me in the 4th try. Seems to need a little drawing luck. Thank you

I got lucky with Deathlord, divine spirit and inner fire and won with this deck on my first try! Hurrah!

After Kel Thuzad comes on the game is won. Still took me 12 more turns to finally get my Deathlord to 32 ;-)

Well I got my deathlord to 42/42 on the first try, so it worked fine for me!

For me, the deck worked like a charm and I defeated Nefarian on second try.

It's a basic deck and it works, what else do you want? If you want an easy normal mode victory, just use one of the heroic decks.

I was skeptical, but I kept trying and after 6 attempts I finally figured out how to play it effectively.  It works, but good draw is crucial.  My strategy was to get him to 1 armour and then kept taking out his minions and buffed my deathlord up enough to take Neffy out in one shot.  It took 14 turns before I could get there.  Good luck!   http://twitter.com/SassyMofrass/status/595324039154913280/photo/1

Managed on the first run in crazy fashion when I accidentally Holy Nova'ed the last of the armor over, starting phase two. Ended up coming out fine with the Northshire Cleric doing a bangup job. Farmed a 10 card hand before ending the Onyxia phase and losing my first wave of minions. Setting up to finish was quick and painless, since I could push the damage over with a single minion hit at any time and set up after. Even with the Velen and Kel'Thuzad gone at that point, I had a second Lightwell and Inner Fire Deathlord ready to go and Nefarian was in pure topdeck mode with a clear board at that point.

 

Tried a second time, to see if I could make it smoother andI ended up in another interesting situation. Found out I wouldn't be able to get my Deathlord up to 31/31 when I used the health doubling too early, and lacking the Velen's Chosen. Fourtunately I had a single Gurabashi Berzerker and Prophet Velen replacing some of the cards I didn't have. Ended up camping behind the high health Deathlord with Velen and double Lightwell keeping everything topped off, and a handy Northshire Cleric I eventually had to replace when I got lower on cards. Farmed the Berzerker scaling up on the 4/2 minions. Finally finished at 5 damage worth of fatigue, but had enough healing up I could have gone for several more turns if need be. Always nice to have a bit of a backup plan. One thing to note that run, Kel did manage to get sniped at one point, when he got two 4 damage spells into hand. Too little, too late for Nef though.

 

Not bad, winning two for two, though guessing the Northshire Cleric draw going well really helped.

Please explain better that you have to do 31 dmg in 1 attack not in 1 turn.

I was able to defeat this boss on normal mode using the standard Mech Aggro/Rush Mage deck after only two tries :)

I'm on attempt- no joke- 116 I've been at this for six days using all variations of this recommended deck and the two others and the best I got was to get him to 12. Frankly I can't really feel like this site is anything except meant to troll people who are coming here for advice.

      The Europe Spring Playoffs and Championship took place over the weekend of May 20-21, which decided not only the new Europe Champion, but also the four players who would represent Europe at the Global Spring Championship in Shanghai next month.
      After seven rounds of Swiss, the top eight players cut to a knockout phase. The results of which were as follows:
        Hoej beat   FibEli3
        Neirea beat   INER
        Rdu beat   Casie
        Kolento beat   StanCifka
      This means that Hoej, Neirea, Rdu, and Kolento will represent Europe in the Global Championship. The top eight being so strong is a sign that the metagame is in a healthy place. All of the players were already known to be among the best in Europe, and despite their lineups differing substantially, they were still able to make it through.
      Hoej went on to take the title, beating Kolento 3-0 in the final. Hoej has been touted as one of the best players in Europe for some time, but traditionally has brought Control decks to major events. This time around, he brought a very aggressive lineup, and was rewarded for his willingness to adapt his style to the meta.
      The deck archetypes that each player brought to the event are listed below:
      Hoej: Aggro Druid, Secret Mage, Murloc Paladin, Pirate Warrior
      Kolento: Jade Druid, Midrange Paladin, Quest Rogue, Quest Warrior
      Neirea: Jade Druid, Discover Mage, Quest Rogue, Quest Warrior
      Rdu: Aggro Druid, Face Hunter, Aggro Shaman, Pirate Warrior
      The next four players to qualify for the Global Championship will be decided next week, with the Americas Spring Championships.

      The Hearthstone Championship Tour (HCT) European Spring Playoffs will take place this weekend, 20-21 May 2017.
      This will be the first playoff event since Journey to Un'Goro was released, and so if anyone has saved any surprise deck tech, this is the event where it will be revealed.
      The top 64 point earners, and ties, from the EU server will be joined by 8 Tavern Hero tournament qualifiers for the event, which will be played in esports bars across Europe. If you want to attend one of the events to cheer on your local favourite, the list of locations can be found here. There will be side events for anyone wishing to attend, with Blizzard prizes available for winners, and the Power Core cardback for all attendees.
      The point standings, showing the top 64, can be found here. As usual the event is stacked with many of the big names from the region. The top four will advance to the HCT Spring Global finals next month.

      There's a new update arriving in the coming weeks and it's going to bring a much requested feature to HS: completing quests while playing with your friends! The other big feature coming with this update is importing decklists, allowing you to easily copy and share your favorite decks without resorting to screenshots or outside sites! No specific ETA has been given and if you want to know all the details check out the announcement post below.
      Blizzard (source)
      Hearthstone’s upcoming update has a lot of cool stuff in it, but we wanted to call special attention to a couple of features that we’re particularly excited about. We think you’ll like them too!

      Friends Forever
      When the new Hearthstone update arrives, you’ll be able to complete quests in Friendly Challenges! Just issue a Friendly Challenge to someone on your Friends list and rack up credit for nearly any quest you can receive.
      Last year, the Friendly Feud allowed players to complete quests when they played with a friend. You gave us a ton of positive feedback about that event, and a lot of you asked us to have Friendly Feuds more often. We thought that was a good idea, so we took it a step further!
      There are some minor caveats. For example, any quests that can’t be completed as part of a Friendly Challenge aren’t eligible, such as those that require you to play vs The Innkeeper or watch a match. Most everything else is fair game though, so now you’ll have a reason to make friends with a recent opponent that isn’t just to send them a compliment.
      Sharing is Caring
      You’ll soon be able to easily copy and share decklists with Deck Importing! No more screen shotting decklists, or staring at a web page as you carefully build a deck, card by card. Trying—and sharing—a new decklist will be as simple as copy and paste!

      Here’s how it works:
      If your deck is already full, when you select the Hero portrait at the top of a deck in your collection, you’ll see a Copy button*. Press that button and your decklist will be copied to your clipboard. If you paste your decklist into a text document, it will look like this:
      Click to view sample decklist. See that conveniently highlighted ‘code’ near the bottom? That code also works on its own, making it easier to share a decklist with friends in chat or social media.
      Importing a decklist is easy. When you go to create the new deck, Hearthstone will “know” when you’ve got a valid decklist on your clipboard, so you’ll be asked if you’d like to create a new deck with the one you’ve got copied. Then you can watch your new deck be built before your eyes. You can also import decklists to Tavern Brawls!
      Don’t have all the cards a deck requires? No worries! In that case, it works just like a deck recipe. Any cards you don’t already own will appear insubstantial and you can select them for suggested replacements. You might also notice that your golden and non-golden cards now stack in decklists too!

      Deck Importing is great for finding and sharing new decks, but it’s also helpful for managing your library of decks. Save the code for decklists you rarely use, and when you’re ready to play one again, just copy and import it.
      The new update including these features will arrive in the coming weeks. We’re super excited about them, and we can’t wait to hear what you think! 
      * Desktop users can use ctrl+c to copy a decklist (you’ll get a confirmation when your copy is successful), then ctrl+v when viewing My Decks to import a decklist.
