I went the opposite route by using my midrange hunter deck, the same deck that I used to defeat The Crone. (Visit her page if you'd like to see the decklist.) I beat Heroic Nightbane in just one attempt (5 turns).

I thought it best to beat him as quickly as possible. With 10 mana, I was able to play everything at once and just rush him. Hunter's Marks are extremely useful! Mulligan for those. His first turn play was Giant Sand Worm + Windfury. Next turn, I changed it's health to 1 and killed it with my Haunted Creeper. Freezing Trap is also a powerful card. Grotesque Dragonhawk aimed to kill my Leokk, but Freezing Trap sent him packing. His next turn was essentially a waste, because he spent 9 mana to replay that Dragonhawk. The only 2 damage that I took was from a charging Tundra Rhino.

The cost of the deck as is would be 4600 dust, but you can get it down to around 3000-3400 dust. As far as changes, the first that comes to mind is Loatheb. I left him in from before, but he should be replaced. Throw in King Krush if you have him. If not, Ragnaros would be okay too. If you want to go cheaper, replace with Call of the Wild or Big Game Hunter, or even another Savannah Highmane.

I haven't played this one yet on Heroic but thanks for the heads up on the Hunter. Glad it worked out for you and I'll let you know if it does the same for me. :)

      In episode two of "What's the Move?" Aleco discusses an open-ended situation which doesn't have a clear answer.
      In episode two of "What's the Move?" Aleco discusses an open-ended situation which doesn't have a clear answer.
      We kicked off this new series by analyzing a tricky situation which had only one optimal line of play. In episode two we'll take a look at a very different kind of situation, one where there might not be a perfect move at all.
      Please let us know in the comments what you would have done in this situation! One of the primary goals of this series is to foster improvement at Hearthstone by generating discussions. We would also love to hear your feedback on the video itself, as the series is still very new and has plenty room to improve on its format.

      In the latest Hearthstone update, Blizzard made adjustments to several cards. The patch is now live now on desktop and it should become available on mobile devices in the coming hours.
      Philosophy and reasons behind these changes can be found here.

      A new Brawl has landed in the Tavern.
      Just like with the previous expansions, it's time to try out the deck recipes of Knights of the Frozen Throne in this week's Tavern Brawl. The archetypes for each deck recipe are the following:
      Druid: I guess the best name for this deck is Midrange Druid. It has Ultimate Infestation and Spreading Plague, so... PROFIT?! Deathrattle Hunter Elemental Mage Divine Shield Paladin Control Priest (you've probably seen variations of it in ladder) Jade Deathrattle Rogue Freeze Shaman Zoolock Control Warrior with Enrage minions This is a good opportunity to try out cards that you don't own. Good luck and have fun!

      The balance patch is arriving in the beginning of the next week.
      The wait is over! The anticipated card balance changes will arrive on September 18th and hopefully freshen up the meta a little bit. As the case always is with balance patches, for the next two weeks if you disenchant Spreading Plague and/or Murloc Warleader, you will get their full value in Arcane Dust.

      In the recent Upcoming Balance Changes – Update 9.1 blog, we discussed the details and philosophy behind balance updates that are coming to several Hearthstone cards:
       
      Innervate - Now reads: Gain 1 Mana Crystal this turn only. (Down from 2) Fiery War Axe - Now costs 3 mana. (Up from 2) Hex - Now costs 4 mana. (Up from 3) Murloc Warleader - Now reads: Your other Murlocs have +2 Attack. (Down from +2 Attack, +1 Health) Spreading Plague - Now costs 6 mana. (Up from 5)
      This patch is currently targeted for September 18th PDT. Please note that updates for mobile devices may take a few additional hours to propagate.

      Once these card changes are live, players will be able to disenchant cards that are not Basic (Murloc Warleader and Spreading Plague) for their full Arcane Dust value for two weeks. Basic cards cannot be disenchanted and will not be available for an Arcane Dust refund. (source)
