2 x Arcane Missiles (Mage)

2 x Mirror Image (Mage)

2 x Clockwork Gnome (Neutral)

2 x Annoy-o-Tron (Neutral)

2 x Snowchugger (Mage)

1 x Sorcerer's Apprentice (Mage)

2 x Polymorph (Mage)

2 x Goblin Blastmage (Mage)

 

Above deck is also a solid alternative, I failed a lot with Pally deck, so created this alternative on my own.

 

Flamewalker wins the game.

 

Vaporize is very critical in certain cases, especially with Krakens and those powered up with Blessing of Kings.

 

Polymorph is mainly for Trion, but if you feel the need to poly a Master Jouster (with Divine shield & Taunt) that should also be okay.

 

Snowchugger + Annoy-O-Tron helps with the weapons.

 

Rhonin may replace Ice Block.

The card list isn't entirely correct, at least not for heroic. The AI managed to place THREE armorsmiths on the battlefield at once.

Actually... I'll try to compile a heroic card list because that's not the only difference by far. I'll get back with one when I can.

I used this mill rogue to get his deck list (lost when he got 2 cards left, must have made a mistake somewhere, should have won):

 

2 Preparation
2 Shadowstep
2 Pit Snake
1 Sir Finley Mrrgglton
2 Gang Up
2 Sap
2 Youthful Brewmaster
1 Brann Bronzebeard
2 Coldlight Oracle
1 Dancing Swords
2 Deathlord
1 Jeeves
2 Refreshment Vendor
2 Antique Healbot
2 Assassinate
1 Emperor Thaurissan
2 Vanish
1 Arch-Thief Rafaam
 
The idea behind using a mill rogue is simple: he doesn't really have board pressure and the AI has a hard time removing Brann or Thaurissan (read: too stupid not to focus him - sometimes he does target him with bash or the armorsmith guys so careful still). So depleting his deck and milling him is not too hard. It actually worked for me quite well but I made one too many mistakes and lost to an unlucky Blingtron weapon in the end.

 

Built this deck to have him cycle through all his deck.

 

OK, this is his decklist. I'm missing one card.

 

2x Sparring Partner

2x Argent Horserider

2x Scarlet Crusader

3x Armorsmith

Blingtron 3000

2x Tuskarr Jouster

2x Lord of the Arena

2x Master Jouster

Tirion Fordring

2x North Sea Kraken

 

2x Truesilver Champion

2x Arcanite Reaper

 

1x Enter the Colisseum

1x Brawl

2x Bash

2x Blessing of Kings

 

I'm missing  a card with 4+ cost. Not sure what.

Why exactly does a decklist contain  Warrior and Paladin cards?

Boss decks don't go by the rules of usual decks. They can have class cards from multiple classes.

You have made a mistake in your heroic list.The Sentinel is using 3x armosmiths and not 2.You can confirm it if you want to.

I defeated Heroic The Steel Sentinel with this F2P deck.

The Steel Sentinel's hero power reduces the incoming damage for him and his minions to one. The attack value of your minions is completely irrelevant, making cards that summon tokens valuable as well as cards with transformation effects.

F2P Mage (0 Dust)
Inspiration: http://www.hearthhead.com/deck=142320/loe-nocost-solver-steel-sentinel

2x Arcane Missiles
2x Elven Archer
2x Mirror Image
2x Acidic Swamp Ooze
2x Arcane Explosion
2x Frostbolt
2x Jeweled Scarab
1x Murloc Tidehunter
1x Brann Bronzebeard
2x Frost Nova
2x Animated Armor
2x Polymorph
2x Water Elemental
2x Etheral Conjurer
2x Summoning Stone
2x Wobbling Runts

Mulligan for Animated Armor, then Jeweled Scarab. Steel Sentinel will almost always attack your face and ignore Animated Armor.
Combine spells with Summoning Stone. Combine Discover minions with Brann Bronzebeard. Excellent spells are the Polymorphs, Ice Barrier and Echo of Medivh. Still good are Arcane Missiles/Explosion and board freezes.
Difficulty: Easy (may take up to 5 tries), IF you play Animated Armor on turn 4.

Deck changes for Normal Mode: 2x Sen'jin Shieldmasta and 2x Flamestrike instead of 2x Animated Armor and 2x Wobbling Runts.

Thanks Fallen for the mage deck. I do not have ice block and replace it with mirror entity. Nail it on the third attempt.

I defeated Heroic Sentinel on my 4th attempt with Dreadlock (would have been 3 attempts, but I accidentally killed my Mal'Ganis with Void Crusher's inspire power in the game before. Doh!)

 

e6cIoH2.png

 

The key to winning this with warlock is Dreadsteed + Baron Rivendare + Mal'Ganis. I'm finding that Dreadsteeds are effective against many of the Adventure bosses. The issue that the AI has is that it completely ignores the deathrattle. All it looks for is efficient trades. Against 1/1 Dreadsteeds, he will attack them with his small minions. When the Sentinel is equipped with a weapon, he will still attack your hero, UNLESS you have a Mal'Ganis in play. Once my Dreadsteeds were buffed to 3/3, Sentinel wasted both charges from BOTH Truesilver Champions by attacking Dreadsteeds. He saw his 4 attack vs their 3 health as a good trade, but he completely ignored the fact that they would just pop right back up. A board of 5 or 6 Dreadsteeds is able to kill most minions immediately following the turn in which they are played. The minions that require an extra damage or two can be finished off by various spells. My deck includes Mortal Coils, Demonwrath, and Bane of Doom, as well as Dark Bargain and Siphon Souls to destroy certain minions (Tirion, Armorsmith, or any minion buffed by Blessing of Kings) outright.

 

I was thinking that Void Crusher combined with my army of Dreadsteeds would be a good way to kill off larger minions, however in the one game where I used his ability, Crusher killed Mal'Ganis instead of one of the five Dreadsteeds. As if I wasn't already screwed enough, he opted to kill himself on the following turn. I learned my lesson! Never put your trust in Void Crusher...

O my fucking god thank you for this deck. I have no idea how many times I've lost using all sorts of decks and I won with yours on the first try.

I think they improved the AI with one of the updates... it's not ignoring Animated Amor anymore.

dude, I have to be honest, or maybe I am doing something wrong.  But the Paladin deck listed here is bad.  I cannot win to save my life with that deck.  Giving the Mage deck a try now....will reply about that in a bit.

After failing enough times with the suggested pally deck, I attempted the Rogue deck mentioned above. This got me much further along against the boss than the pally deck did, but it still wasn't quite enough, so I tweaked it a bit and this was the end result. This deck focuses on using hard removals and sustains. I noticed recurring Divine Shields so I tossed the blood knights in and they worked wonders for me. I used both Gang Up cards on Patient Assassin, as he is the most reliable removal tool as long as the boss doesn't use his board clears, which he only has two of, and both Shadowsteps were used on my Black Knight. If you have both Black Knight and Acidic Swamp Ooze in hand, Tirion becomes null and void. With Mrrgglton, if presented with the option, pick the pally hero power. By the end of the fight, the boss had no cards left either in deck or in hand, and even though Fatigue still only does one damage at a time to him, I was able to summon a full board of minions in time to kill him through the use of the pally hero power.

Just did it with Mecha'thun druid. Was very easy and a bless after trying it with different decks for several hours.

      Today, we're recapping the four Shaman cards revealed by Gamespot. We also have some dev clarifications on how they work.
      If you missed our previous Warrior recap, you will find it here.

       
      What a way to kick things off; this card looks insane! The dream is that Drakuru takes out two of your opponent’s minions, resurrects them on your side, and survives combat somehow. You’re looking at a 5-for-1 exchange on board.
      In the more likely scenario that it doesn’t survive, that’s still a complete flip of the board state. Even if it’s trading into a single big minion on the opponent’s side, that’s still a 2-for-1, with that 1 on your side being a big tough-to-kill minion. The only worry is that there will sometimes be late-game scenarios where the 6/8 stat line won’t be enough to get you any resurrections, but I’m hopeful those are few and far between.
      Still, even if the Big Shaman archetype doesn’t catch on for Shaman, I expect this card, in particular, to find a home in Renathal Control Shaman lists. This card is doing much of the same work that Sylvanas and Insatiable Devourer are without having to run through the trouble of infusing first.

      Once again, another big expensive card and a solid showy effect to go along with it. Obvious deathrattle/reborn synergy, as well as good with big minions in general. At 10 cost, it will take up your entire mana pool for the turn, though there are things you can do to play around that as a shaman.
      We’ve gotten some clarification from the devs on the mechanics of this one:
      All the copies summoned die at the end of the effect trigger after having attacked. Unfortunately, it won’t be some corruption-style aura effect that a cheeky Showstopper effect can silence off. Your copies are made from your hand from left to right until no more board spaces are available. Beware that Colossals will summon their appendages and take up potential board space from your other copies. Windfury minions will only attack. Sorry Drakuru, no double freebies for you ? Minions that enter Dormant won’t attack, but they won’t die either! The interaction of getting free dormant minion copies on board is interesting, but is there enough to build a deck around? In standard, there is Gangplank, Slimescale, and Pelican Divers, but outside of From De Other Side “synergy,” they might not be worth it. In Wild, at the very least, there is meme potential with getting Magtheridion and The Darkness out with this and getting their battlecries to awaken both copies when you play them out the turn after.
      There’s obvious synergy with the other big cards revealed here, with Prescience loading up your hand with some beefy bois, getting get off reborn, lifesteal and deathrattle value, summon a minion from Overlord Drakuru.

      That’s a lot of keywords for a single card, but they work together to become the stuff of nightmares for any board-based aggro deck. Taunt and lifesteal make this a nightmare to trade into, and even with enough removal to clear the main body and the reborn one, the deathrattle effect still will hit for 3 twice and heal you for 6. So while the 3 attack won’t be anything to write home about, plopping this down will buy you a good deal of time. There’s also the possibility to make use of the leftover reborn 3/1 body to evolve into a 9 or 10 drop.

      This card will get you 2 Mana 2/3 Ghostly Apparitions with the Undead minion type, which can matter for cards like Unliving Champion, or Invincible, for instance. Suppose you trigger the secondary ability here both times. In that case, that’s a pretty sweet deal right there, advancing a Big Shaman win con in 2 ways: The taunt on the Ghostly Apparitions advances your gameplan of stalling the game out until you can stabilize on board enough to play the 5+ Mana minions you’ve tutored out of the deck.
      We’ve theory crafted 3 potential builds that can use this package of Shaman cards.
      First, consider diving head first into the Big Shaman theme, bringing in Vanndar Stormpike and forgoing all other sub-5 cost minions to get max value out of Prescience and From De Other Side. We’re also going to run with the evolve subtheme to take advantage of any leftover bodies that we might get from Stoneborn General, Overlord Drakuru, or Blighblood Berserkers. The departure of the Knights of the Frozen Throne set will make evolving 10 drops better again now that there are no more Snowfury Giants in the Evolve pool, and we get to re-roll for the generally better bodies from the 10 costs. We’re adding in some early-game removal to compensate for the lack of early drops so we can better survive the early game.

      AAECAaoICunQBMORBKeNBK/ZBNnsA/rsA4qSBfuRBYfUBKrZBArG+QOs7QS12QTgtQS22QTblATGzgTj9gOGoQX4oAUA
      Next, let’s try to use the standard Renathal Control Shaman archetype that’s doing rather well in the meta as a starting point. One safe idea is to look at slotting Overlord Drakuru and potentially Brightblood Berskerker and From De Other Side into this standard XL Renathal Control Shaman as ways of fighting back on board while getting your infuse cards stacked up.

      We could instead also try and drop all the duplicates from the list and convert it into a Reno deck, as the deck was already playing a lot of one-offs. That gives us just enough room for one of each of these bad boys, which together with Reno will up the turnaround potential of the deck at the cost of a little bit of consistency. Doing so we can end up with this list:
      Deck code / link: 
      AECAaoICunQBMORBKeNBK/ZBNnsA/rsA4qSBfuRBYfUBKrZBArG+QOs7QS12QTgtQS22QTblATGzgTj9gOGoQX4oAUA
      Why not use both and make it a Reno-thal deck? Prescience and Windchill will try to compensate for the loss of card draw from droping one copy of Gorloc Ravager and Famished fool. We are adding in Convincing Disguise to have still enough evolve effects around. The idea of including Bracing Cold and Far Sight is to hopefully discount From De Other Side or the evolve cards so we make use of any leftover bodies in the same turn. Ozumat’s in here not just to get us up to 40 cards, but because it’s a near guaranteed board clear combo with From De Other side, if you manage your hand and board space just right, that leaves you with all its appendages afterward.

      March of the Lich King, set to release on December 6th, is Hearthstone's third expansion in the Year of the Hydra. Blizzard gave us an early sneak peek at some of the Warrior cards revealed today that we discuss in our latest post.
      Today, we'd like to dive into the Warrior cards revealed by Inven Global.

      Pretty straightforward card. The effect gives us much more value the larger the minion is. It gets really scary with the potential follow-up with Bulk Up giving you this massively overstated minion in hand twice. Or If you can get this on Mor’shan Elite, that’s another nice double dip of value.

      Honestly, this feels like it was tailor-made to be the ideal target of Last Stand, as your opponent can’t easily get rid of it with cheap removal. It lets you use your stats immediately by letting you trade in and stabilize with a big taunt. It might not be too shabby on its own, as the 3 effects make it an annoying wall most opponents will be forced to trade into.

      Wow, they’re really not holding back with hand disruption this set. One (nearly) guaranteed discard is pretty impactful and becomes a must-remove card in any control matchup. This card will absolutely crush the hearts of some Big Spell Mages in the coming months, that’s for sure.
      It should be noted that this discard, the devs have confirmed to us that it will trigger your opponent’s “Whenever you discard a card” effects. So try and clear a Discard Warlock's Tiny Knight of Evil and perhaps try to play around having Suffocating Shadows or Soul Barrage trigger in that matchup. 

      To round off the control toolbox from this expansion, we’ve got a pretty unique effect here. Hopefully, this doesn’t end up being too easy to play around for savvy opponents. You could pre-empt this by running out a Blademaster Okani first and baiting out your opponent into playing a small spell first. But still, while the effect will only be as game-changing as your opponent’s last spell, getting any meaningful spell off seems pretty nice.
      Putting it all together, we have put together an interesting Taunt Control Warrior decklist to try out:  AAECAQcMmu0D784EvIoE2fkDqIoEiN8E784E0qwEmu0DlJUEzJIFiKAECcWSBZTtA47tA5+fBImgBIagBJDUBMSSBcuSBQA= . Slotting in Varian seems like a natural addition to any deck with Silverfury Stalwart and Tealan hops along to be the one divine shield minion you might want to have in your control deck. Rokara and Remornia are just good cards and they’ll go a long way to having your Mor’shan Elite’s active. The rest of the deck is the classic Control Warrior shell that will hopefully give you the armor and removal needed to live long enough to throw down your double-stated taunted win conditions.
      https://hearthstone.blizzard.com/deckbuilder?deckcode=AAECAQcMmu0D784EvIoE2fkDqIoEiN8E784E0qwEmu0DlJUEzJIFiKAECcWSBZTtA47tA5%2BfBImgBIagBJDUBMSSBcuSBQA%3D

      Murder at Castle Nathria is Hearthstone's latest expansion. It adds a new Infuse keyword that absorbs anima from your friendly minions, a new card type named Locations, and more.

      Murder at Castle Nathria
      Hearthstone’s Newest Expansion

      The Shadowlands is normally where souls go after they die, so when someone dies in the Shadowlands, that’s a special kind of mystery. Sire Denathrius invited 10 of his counterparts and enemies to Castle Nathria for a dinner party so that he could address the malicious rumors that he is hoarding anima, the life-energy that is drained from tortured souls and used to power the Shadowlands. But just after the festivities started, Sire Denathrius was found dead! It seems a gaggle of enemies does not a good dinner party make. Now the illustrious Murloc Holmes, and his trusty sidekick Watfin, have been called to solve the case. Scour new Location cards, follow the trail of Infused minions, question the 10 Legendary suspects, and help determine who committed Murder at Castle Nathria!   

      Murder at Castle Nathria will launch worldwide on August 2 with 135 new collectible cards! You can find the full Murder at Castle Nathria reveal schedule, and all cards that have already been revealed, by visiting the card library here. Check back frequently—the list will be updated with new cards as they’re revealed!
      Ten Suspicious Suspects
      Sire Denathrius had a lot of enemies. And it just so happens that 10 of them were under his roof at the time of his demise! Each class will have a Legendary minion that is a prime suspect in Sire Denathrius’s murder. They all have the means and the motive, but it is up to you and Murloc Holmes to determine who is guilty.



      New Keyword: Infuse
      Anima, drawn from wayward souls, powers all the Shadowlands—and those who consume it! Cards with the Infuse keyword sit in your hand and absorb anima from your friendly minions as they die. After the specified number of friendly minions die while the Infuse card is in your hand, the Infuse card transforms into a more powerful version. Infuse your cards to unlock their full power!

      New Card Type: Locations
      Castle Nathria is like no place Hearthstone has ever been before. Explore the castle grounds through the all-new Location card type! Locations are played onto the battlefield for an initial cost, and then have an ability that can be activated for free on your turns, each time for a powerful effect. Each activation costs 1 Durability and has a 1-turn Cooldown. Every class gets their own Location card in Castle Nathria which represents where they claim their suspect was at the time of the murder, and synergizes with the themes of the class.

       
      Locations Gameplay Preview with Brian Kibler and Designer Leo Robles Gonzalez
      Want to get a longer look at the new Location card type? Join Brian Kibler and Game Designer Leo Robles Gonzalez as they explore the new Location card type, try them out in a couple games, and reveal some more new cards! Join them on Friday, July 1, at 11 a.m. (Pacific) on Twitch and Youtube!
