The draft: 
No Fiery Winaxe - however, there are some significant taunts - including Obsidian and double Belcher. 
Sideshow Spelleater has amazing potential - removing the Warrior's hero power that doesn't really impact the board. How about a Hunter's Steady Shot or a Mage's ping? 

The question is, will Alexstrasza make a difference?

VIDEO 1: 12 Win Warrior Arena Part 1 - He who taunts first wins?

1: Hunter - WIN - A straightforward game. The Hunter never was able to put a dent in my health.

2: Rogue - WIN - I thought I had a taunt heavy deck. The Rogue goes crazy with taunt after taunt! Sideshow Spelleater lets me win the game.

3: Hunter - WIN - After a few dodgy trades on my part, I taunt up. Deadly Shot kills my Obsidian - but Alex arrives to give me lethal!

4: Warrior - WIN - He who taunts up first wins?


VIDEO 2: 12 Win Warrior Arena Part 2 - Spelleater, Belcher, Obsidian value.

5: Druid - WIN - Starfire on a Cobra? Sure. I'll take that. Sideshow Spelleater lets me pretend to be a Druid. Playing a big tree won't save you! Obsidian goes to work here in a major way, backed up by Sludge Belcher.

6: Paladin - WIN - Cultmaster and Obsidian value takes us to 6 wins.

7: Paladin - WIN - Sword of Justice for the Paladin causes a slight panic. A 3-2 charging horse with a divine shield?! Coghammer? Kings? Another Kings? Keeper of Uldaman? Not enough!

8: Rogue - WIN - Double Slime from the Sludge Belchers wins the day.

9: Paladin - WIN - Secrets everywhere! Some interesting decisions get made. The Paladin makes a huge push at the end with Mind Control Tech, Keeper of Uldaman and Murloc Knight. The Paladin actually drafted NAT PAGLE! Alex gives me significant board presence at the end, allowing me to go face, face, face!


VIDEO 3: 12 Win Warrior Arena Part 3 - The Venture Co who wanted to be a Ravenholdt Assassin...

10: Paladin - LOSS - Perhaps some of my plays were questionable. Although, the Paladin has answers to everything (Consecration, Keeper of Uldaman, Mind Control Tech, Hammer of Wrath, Aldor, Murloc Knight, etc). One turn you are in control, the next, you are screwed. I dream about what would have happened if my Frothing Berserker could not be answered in the early game... Alex does nothing at the end for me. His board was too strong.

11: Rogue - WIN - Double Belcher says hello.

12: Warrior - LOSS - My opponent had Fiery win axe :-( I get punished by an Ooze for not using my weapon... I get punished for freezing the wrong minion. Even Tinkmaster Overspark can't save me. The Warrior plays VARIAN WRYNN just to add insult to injury.

13: Paladin - WIN - The Paladin actually gets Lil'Exorcist actually gets DOUBLE value from my deathrattle minions sad.png Despite the Paladin having a huge board, I make the decision to go face at the end, which ends up winning me the game. I stealth my Venture Co - which he was not able to answer. The gamble paid off!

14: Mage - WIN - The final boss. Nervous. Scary. I wasn't keen on drafting Inner Rage, but it actually has helped me in this series. Spectral Knight is such a great card in Arena. Can't be targeted by spells. It can be healed up too by another minion. That 6 health is fantastic. Even when at 1 health, it can't be pinged by the Mage's hero power. Oh - but wait - an Elven Archer can kill it! Good plays from the Mage. On an interesting note, Spellslinger gives me BLOODLUST (which I didn't get a chance to play).

      Hi everyone! This is my first time playing endgame content, thanks to some veteran friends who invited me to play with them. I started with a Fury Warrior, and now that I feel comfortable, I started logging the runs. 

      Here is a part of Antorus Normal ( I accidentaly deleted the file later which included the rest of the bosses :( ) 

      Would anyone please take a look at it to see where I have room for improvement (probably everything) and how can I tackle those issues?

      PD: Im lacking one of the BiS leggos, and ever since I have the Convergance of Fates trinket, I lost my rotation, cant seem to find when to fire each ability now.

      Hello fellow warriors. I'm looking for some input on my DPS and my issues with it. I currently sim 1.8m on Raidbots, but I'm only able to pull 1.2-1.3m consistently. I feel like I have a good grasp on the rotation: 100Rage Rampage > BT > RB/FS > RB/FS > BT > Rampage. I pop my CDs (all 3) either before my first Rampage or right after I use Rampage for two Rampage in a row. Odyn's Fury comes right after my Rampages with Battle Cry. 
      I finally got my Pantheon trinket last week and it killed my haste. It's down to 20% from 25%, which didn't make my DPS drop (it went up 100-300k). I have my 4 piece and BiS Leggos. I plan on TRYING to replace my belt with a Haste one (if I can get one to drop). 
      Here are my character's logs:
      I don't have an updated raid to go on since I forgot to log my last Normal.

      The Sworn is recruiting DPS. We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 5/11 Mythic Antorus. We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:15 PM until 12:15 AM Eastern. Currently, our main goal is to push Mythic progression & finish out the raid before next patch, please keep this in mind if you wish to join us, because we will not be doing Heroic or anything like that.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated. In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
      As far as classes are concerned, at this time, we do not have ANY rogues, DPS warriors, havoc DH, or wind walkers.
      If you are interested, add me to battle tag and we will talk (violentravi#1826), I will accept mostly anyone who wants to be a bench or casual, but for raiding purposes, you must be able to provide logs.
      Thank you for your consideration

      About Us
      Skunkworks is a guild for players who can not or do not want to commit to the time-intensive raid schedules of traditional "hardcore" guilds.
      However, we still maintain a high caliber player environment and make an efficient use of our raiding time.
      We raid Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:00 - 11:00 PST, just 8 hours a week and never more.
      We are very protective of our guild environment and selective in recruitment. We are looking for solid players mechanically as well as intellectually.
      We all get paid to deal with idiots, why should we pay to spend our leisure time with them as well?
      Skunkworks has been around for multiple expansions and has historically always been at the top of the 2-night raiding guild scene.

      Hey guys so I'm just looking for some insight on if I'm correctly doing my rotation or if there are things I could work on.
      Here are my logs: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/character/us/terokkar/djingy
      and Varimathras in particular: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/ma9kvtdyfT3LRzFP#fight=last&type=summary
