I've had fairly consistent success with this fight using a pretty cheap mage deck loaded with secrets.

 

Dire Wolf x2

Mad Scientist x2

Counterspell x2

Frost Nova x2

Ice Barrier x1

Ice Block x1

Mirror Image x1

Spell Binder x1

Vaporize x2

Flamewalker x2

Kirin Tor Mage x1

Etherial Arcanist x2

Kezan Mystic x1

Flame Lance x1

Etherial Conjurer x2

Summoning Stone x2

Blizzard x1

Emperor Thaurissian x1

Flamestrike x2

Archmage Antonidas x1

 

The early turns can be tough, especially if he gets a turn 2 buff off and has two 3/8s on the board. You'll want to mulligan for Dire Wolf, Mad Scientist, or Vaporize to help stabilize the board in early game. The key to this deck is getting a Summoning Stone in play and just unloading spells to fill your board with useful creatures before it becomes clogged from his hero power. I've also had luck with an Etherial Arcanist staying in play long enough to become a 15/15 and pounding face with it.

 

The three main counters I try to aim for are:

  • Stealing his Sacred Trials with the Kezan Mystic
  • Having his Entomb hit a Spell Binder
  • Having Ice Block for when he clears the board and hits your face. In normal this only hits for 1 damage per statue destroyed but in heroic it does 3 damage per, so it has the possibility of killing you in one shot if you're not careful.

 

If you find yourself getting overwhelmed I'd recommend dropping the Flamewalkers for a couple Doomsayers.

      Threat Level Midnight is a group of players who get together Sunday nights from 6-10 PM CDT to raid current content. We limit our ceiling to heroic mode content because we have many raid members with real life priorities who can't commit to a more hardcore schedule. We're a laid back group and take raiding just seriously enough to get heroic content cleared. We have quite a few raiders that have hardcore raid experience from previous expansions. 

      What we need

      DPS HIGH need, we have pretty solid heals and tanks, we just need more dps to push to a 15-18 man raid size. If you can offspec heal or tank bonus points.

      We are also accepting cross realm recruits, who are maybe an alt that they're pugging through content each week, or in a non raiding guild that you don't want to leave. Any skilled and reliable players that can make our raid time

      Bonus points if you can do The Scarn

      We could consider any other classes but ranged right now are at the highest demand. We wanted to add people that can add to the friendly environment. If you're interested contact me on bnet Cahones#1561 or discord Cahones#3167. Discord is best for fastest response.

      Also hosting PUG normal ToS for the time being on Saturday nights, get in contact with me if you're interested in that, although that raid start time will vary week to week
