One Abomination is enough to foul the AI after it losed its three Grannies not to attack. But don't play a secound one.

If you run 2 copies of Abomination, you have a higher chance of drawing it. That's why it's included twice.

Moat Lurker, which I believe you get from one of the previous bosses of this adventure (Normal or Heroics, not sure), is incredibly useful for this Heroic fight. It kills a minion, and then when it dies, resummons that minion. Best part is, the resummoned minion is back to full strength. I used it to kill my Piloted Sky Golem, get a free 4-cost minion from the Deathrattle, and then when Moat Lurker died, I got back a 6/4 Sky Golem. =) Sylvanas Windrunner would be another great target for this card, or any powerful Deathrattle minon for that matter. It pretty much single-handedly won me this fight, so I hope it helps you!

You have Bestial wrath in a Druid deck...

That deck actually belongs to the wolf. The deck even contains an uncollectible weapon, Big Bad Claws, which should make clear that it is the wolf's deck.

I did not try paladin, but I found luck with one of my shaman decks. Morgl triumphed with just one attempt.

The deck includes 2x Earth Shock. Starting with one or both of these is ideal. They effectively neutralize the Kindly Grandmothers that Big Bad Wolf starts with. I also have a Hex in there which proved useful. I used Harrison Jones and also included Acidic Swamp Ooze to destroy his Big Bad Claws. Damage spells such as Lightning Bolt and Lightning Storm are extremely helpful for spot and mass removal. Lightning Storm paired with Wrath of Air Totem is a beautiful sight. Feral Spirit is a great card too. With it being a spell, the 2/3 taunts remain as such, buying needed time to stabilize. A single Healing Wave provided the much needed healing to outlast the Wolf. Using cards like Master of Evolution and Evolve, you can turn your little 1/1s into full-sized minions. In the screenshot above, I am holding onto Evolve because I had such a favorable setup with Thunder Bluff Valiant and buffed totems. Once I gained board control, the rest was pretty simple. With an empty board and hand, he wasn't much of a threat. I was praying that he didn't draw a Swipe though... That's the only card that could have done me in. Lol

Didn't have enough of the cards in the guide to do this with Paladin. Took a few goes but got it with the constructed Barnes-YShaarj Hunter deck.

Nice one. Do you mean the one from our site? If so, here is a link to the deck.

Yes, that deck. Have been playing it a bit in constructed. Just keep restarting until you have turn 1 Barnes. That cancels out his starting advantage, then stall until Call of the Wilds. Explosive Trap was pretty useful if I recall right.

Very cool. Glad to hear people finding new ways to beat it from the site! Thanks also for giving some pointers for those that might try it.

Jade cards still ramp, and minions with battlecry that summon other minions work just fine, e.g. big-time racketeer.

I did heroic with Druid using standard Jade, big-time racketeer, wobbling runts, ancient of war, cenarius, ragnaros, etc. Hogger was also quite useful.

Good luck!

Thanks for pointing this out! I tested it and it turns out this goes for other cards that are tokens as well (WrathRaven Idol, Druid of the Claw...), and Damien is investigating it already. Thanks again for pointing this out!

      This week's Tavern Brawl is a great way to try out some of the new cards from The Witchwood.
       
      Looking for a chance to try out some of the new cards from The Witchwood? This week's Brawl, titled "A Witchy Recipe", features preconstructed decks for each class which are built around some of the less-played cards from the new expansion, including many of the new Legendary minions from the set.
      Here are the names of some of the new cards you can try for yourself in A Witchy Recipe:
      Druid: Hand-size with Witchwood Apple, Ferocious Howl, and Wispering Woods. Hunter: Midrange Dragon/Poison with Carrion Drake, Vilebrood Skitterer, and Emeriss. Mage: Elemental Minions with Book of Specters, Archmage Arugal, and Bonfire Elemental. Paladin: Even Paladin with The Glass Knight and Genn Greymane. Note: If you're looking for a quick win, this deck feels like the most powerful of the bunch. Priest: Odd Priest with Chameleos, Glitter Moth, and Nightscale Matriarch. Rogue: Echo/Burgle with Pick Pocket, Tess Greymane, and Face Collector. Shaman: Battlecry Shaman with Blazing Invocation, Zap!, and Hagatha the Witch. Warrior: Rush with Darius Crowley, Town Crier, and Woodcutter's Axe. Warlock: Self-damage with Blood Witch, Deathweb Spider. and Glinda Crowskin. As usual, the reward for A Witchy Recipe is one pack of Classic.

      The team has finally responded to the community's concerns on the new Shaman legendary minion.
      Two weeks after The Witchwood's release, Team 5 has addressed the issues surrounding Shudderwock. Its animation will go faster and it will cap at 20 Battlecries. Hopefully, it will be less of a nuisance now. Lifedrinker will also receive a bump on its animation speed.
      I assume the fix will go live on April 26 along with the Monster Hunt.
      Jesse Hill
      Recently, our players have had feedback regarding the Shaman card, Shudderwock. We understand that the length of its Battlecry animation and other animations spawned from its Battlecry can be frustrating. In a future update, we will be doubling the animation speed of Shudderwock’s Battlecry so it will lessen the impact on the overall pacing of your current Hearthstone match. In addition, the amount of Battlecries Shudderwock can reproduce will be capped at 20.
      We will also be speeding up the animation of Lifedrinker for similar reasons.
      Thank you for your feedback, and we’ll see you in the Tavern.
      Cheers!

      The rewards are different for each rank. You receive the chest for the best rank you achieve, so do not be afraid of dropping a rank. Additionally, after reaching a milestone rank (ranks in bold), you will not fall below them that season again. This means that if you lose a game at rank 15 with 0 stars, you will not drop to rank 16, but rather stay at rank 15 with no stars.
      Rank Reward 25-21 None 20 1 golden common, 5 dust 19 1 golden common, 10 dust 18 1 golden common, 15 dust 17 1 golden common, 20 dust 16 1 golden common, 25 dust 15 1 golden common, 1 golden rare, 5 dust 14 1 golden common, 1 golden rare, 10 dust 13 1 golden common, 1 golden rare, 15 dust 12 1 golden common, 1 golden rare, 20 dust 11 1 golden common, 1 golden rare, 25 dust 10 2 golden commons, 1 golden rare, 5 dust 9 2 golden commons, 1 golden rare, 10 dust 8 2 golden commons, 1 golden rare, 15 dust 7 2 golden commons, 1 golden rare, 20 dust 6 2 golden commons, 1 golden rare, 25 dust 5 2 golden commons, 1 golden epic, 5 dust 4 2 golden commons, 1 golden epic, 10 dust 3 2 golden commons, 1 golden epic, 15 dust 2 2 golden commons, 1 golden epic, 20 dust 1 2 golden commons, 1 golden epic, 25 dust Legend 3 golden commons, 1 golden epic You also receive a card back for winning 5 games during the season.
