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.

      Dave Kosak introduces us to the Monster Hunt, which will be available in a week.
      The Lead Mission Designer was joined by two of his associates to discuss the newest PvE mode, which will come along with The Witchwood. Paul Nguyen talked about the four heroes. Tess Greymane has a Hero Power that lets her Discover any class card that has been played in a game (by both players) and add it to your hand.
      Darius Crowley has an indestructible cannon minion that can be activated via Darius' Hero Power and fire at the minions across it. Positioning will matter, as you can kill two enemy minions at once and the Hero Power will refresh each time you kill a minion with your cannon. There weren't any details on Houndmaster Shaw or Toki, Time-Tinker, but it was hinted that the former hero will have something to do with Rush (just like its card counterpart).
      Giovanni Scarpati discussed bosses and treasures. The Monster Hunt will feature over 45 unique boss encounters. As Ben Brode had revealed in an earlier interview, each hero will have its own final boss, called "nemesis fight". For Crowley it's Lord Godfrey, for Shaw it's Glinda Crowskin and for Toki it's her own future self! When you clear the Monster Hunt with all four heroes (and win four packs), you get to face Hagatha as the last boss. Ultimately, as far as the treasures are concerned, there are a few returning ones from the Dungeon Run, but most are new. There are also hero exclusive treasures, as well as unique treasures "dropping" from rare boss encounters.
      You should definitely watch the video to get a glimpse of all the new stuff coming with the Monster Hunt. And don't forget: it's release date is April 26 at 10:00 am PDT!

      Start stocking up on vials of holy water and cannonballs, because The Witchwood’s free, single-player missions, the Monster Hunt, goes live on April 26 at 10:00 a.m. PDT!
      Join Lead Mission Designer Dave Kosak, along with Mission Designers Paul Nguyen and Giovanni Scarpati, for a Hearthside Chat that will equip you with everything you need to know for a successful Monster Hunt!
      Ready for Action
      If you played the Dungeon Run in Kobolds & Catacombs, the Monster Hunt will be eerily familiar—but much is different! Rather than choosing one of Hearthstone’s nine classes, you’ll take on the role of one of four veteran monster hunters, each with a special ability that you’ll need to make the most of if you hope to survive the hunt.
      Your hunter will venture deep into the Witchwood on Hagatha’s trail, defeating a series of monstrous bosses who dare to cross your path. With each victory, you’ll build a stronger and stronger deck with the items you find. You may encounter some trusty old equipment out in the forest, but much of what you’ll find will be entirely new, including treasures unique to certain foes. Each monster hunter has their own favorite tricks—a special hero power or ability that you’ll need to master if you hope to survive the hunt. Each hunter also carries a grudge against a heinous nemesis in the woods: a unique boss that only they can track down to fight.

      You’ll want to go on a Monster Hunt with every hunter, because each offers a quest that will earn you a Witchwood card pack. And if you’ve got the mettle to complete the Monster Hunt with all four hunters, you’ll finally have a chance to face off with the real witch in the woods: Hagatha! If you can free the wood from Hagatha’s curse, you’ll earn the gratitude of Gilneas and the Monster Hunter card back!

      We hope you enjoyed learning more of what lurks ahead in Monster Hunt! We’re eager to hear your tales of The Witchwood on social media using the #Witchwood hashtag. Learn more about The Witchwood at TheWitchwood.com!
      We’ll see you on the hunt!
