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.

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 ;-)

Yeah this mage deck is absolutely horrible

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.

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.

      A callback to Annoy-o-Tron, this new Mech card could be a serious player in the meta.
       
      Episode 2 of "Enter Boom Labs" has revealed another new Magnetic card from The Boomsday Project, called Annoy-o-Module:
       

       
      A callback to Annoy-o-Tron, this guy gains Magnetic and 1/2 worth of stats for just 2 Mana! The stats and keywords this card instantly adds to another Mech seem quite strong when you compare it to Blessing of Kings, which adds 2 more Attack to a minion but does not add Divine Shield and Taunt. This card isn't awful when played on it's own, and it plays well in a deck with Corpsetaker. Annoy-o-Module checks enough for boxes for me, and I full expect it to see play in the upcoming meta.
      Episode 2 of "Enter Boom Labs" is short but sweet, and you can watch the full video right here:
       
       
      Do you think Annoy-o-Module impact the game as much as Annoy-o-Tron did? Let us know in the comment section, and be sure to check out our Boomsday Hub for more spoilers from the upcoming expansion.

      Use Mini-Rag to destroy enemy minions and level up your"Wow!" emote in this week's Tavern Brawl.
       
      In celebration of The Midsummer Fire Festival, this week's Tavern Brawl is all about Ragnaros, Lightlord. Well, Mini-Rag to be more specific:
       

       
      A 2/3 Ragnaros with Immune will start the game on one side of the board. At the end of each turn, Mini-Rag will deal 1 damage to a random target on the other side of the board for each Attack he has, then swap to the other side of the board. Each time he kills an enemy minion he will gain 1 Attack, growing in power as the game progresses.
       

       
      Due to the sudden pressure that Mini-Rag applies to both players, I highly recommend playing an Aggro deck. I used Odd Rogue in my first game to take down an Odd Hunter. You could also play an anti-aggro deck to try and counter all the aggro decks running around, but be sure to play some self-healing such as Branching Paths or Healing Rain.
       

       
      The Tavern Brawl will track how many minion kills that Mini-Rag racks up. After 8, 30, and 60 Minion kills, you will level up the fireworks in your "Wow!" emote. This is a returning Tavern Brawl from last year's festival, and your running total of Mini-Rag kills from last year's festival carries over to this year. Happy hunting!
