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. :)

      It looks like that, contrary to previous expansions, the Kobolds and Catacombs card reveals will start with a card reveal stream.
      We are used to getting card reveals streams in the end of the revealing period, but now we get one in the beginning (and presumably another one in the end?).
      As it was already known, the card reveals will restart on November 20. The stream, hosted by Game Designer Peter Whalen and Brian Kibler, will begin at 11 a.m. PST or 8:00 p.m. CET of that day. It will be broadcast on the PlayHearthstone Twitch channel and it will be available in several languages.
      Hopefully we'll get a good amount of cards shown; we'd expect to see around 15 cards. As always, Icy Veins will be here to cover this. Don't forget to keep an eye at our Kobolds & Catacombs hub!

      We finally have a new brawl this week and it rewards a Kobolds & Catacombs pack.
      In this Tavern Brawl, you just pick a class and you get a random deck.
      Both players get a quest. This quest requires that 7 minions are played by any player. When the quest is completed a Treasure Chest, similar to the one spawned by Marin the Fox, will appear on both sides of the board and the quest counter will be reset.
      If you are the one to play the 7th minion, then an easier-to-break 0/4 Treasure Chest (which can be healed) will appear on your opponent's side. In contrast, a normal 0/8 Treasure Chest will appear on your side of the board and vice versa.
      Be aware that even though the quest states that minions need to be summoned, they actually need to be played. This means that cards like Stand Against Darkness or the minions summoned from cards like Barnes or Murloc Tidehunter do not add to the quest counter.
      This Tavern Brawl combines skill and luck. You have to make critical decisions in choosing whether to push face damage or break the chest and hope for the best. On the other hand, a good Treasure Chest highroll can completely change the game.
      Upon victory in this brawl, you will be awarded with a Kobolds & Catacombs card pack which can be opened when the new expansion releases.
