why not a wild deck?

The deck you should play contains wild cards. This way you have way more options and you will have much easier fight.

The decks that your opponents use are in standard only, but that is just a design choice and I do not know why exactly has Blizzard decided to follow that design.

A few observations from my many failed attempts to beat this on my own...

Nazra has a different decklist for Heroic. I have taken note of the following changes:

-2 Injured Blademaster

-2 Raid Leader

-2 Razorfen Hunter

-2 Power of the Horde

-2 Frostwolf Warlord

+2 Execute

+2 Upgrade!

+2 Slam

+2 Warsong Commander

+2 Looming Presence

You can double check me on those, but I'm pretty sure it's right.

I experimented with Loatheb on the turn before the auto-cast Twisting Nether. If played just before, it will delay the board clear, but only for one turn. Melchezaar will still play it the next chance he gets, even if it destroys his own minions. Another interesting observation is that he will sometimes lead with Shadow Bolt Volley if it will give him lethal, and if the 3-target condition is met. In one of my attempts, he opted for that spell rather than the Twisting Nether.

I give up trying to defeat this ridiculous boss encounter all by my own! I will now implement the deck/strategies suggested on here...

Success! Thank you to everyone at Icy Veins for the Anyfin Can Happen build/strategy.

Even with the suggested deck, it took me 7 attempts. I was lacking two cards- Lay on Hands and a Murloc Warleader. I added 2x Moat Lurkers in their places to possibly use on Murloc Warleader or Ragnaros to respawn him after the board clear. It wasn't enough. After 5 losses, I decided to craft the second Murloc Warleader. I left one Moat Lurker in place of Lay on Hands. In the win, I used Moat Lurker's battlecry on a Murloc Warleader to give me an extra one on the board after Twisting Nether. Worked out pretty well!

5500 dust qualifies as cheap?

In this context, yes. "Cheap" is not to be taken literally, but rather as "cheapest Sottle could make the deck and still consistently win against the boss".

Most bosses can be defeated in heroic mode with (almost) Basic decks, but you'll need some insane RNG at times.

We decided to remove "Cheap" from the title as it apparently causes confusion. 5,5k dust is a lot for newer players, so it might seem that "Cheap" is a clickbait, but the reason for "Cheap" to be in the name is that, just like Keizoku said, it is cheaper than most of decks used for consistent victory in heroic mode. Another consistent option for clearing this boss are N'Zoth, the Corruptor decks, mainly for paladin, but their cost starts at 9k dust and usually  goes up to 15k dust.

Thanks, beat it after restarting a few times for a  good opener.  Was missing a Murloc Warleader so I used Old Murk Eye in it's place.  Had to draw all 30 cards to get what I needed before starting the next phase, but it was easy since I still had an equality and consecration combo.  Didn't even really need the 2nd Anyfin after my board clear.

Can anybody explain how you're supposed to survive long enough to go through the deck? There aren't any early minions that can kill her minions, and the only board clears require two cards and by the time you have the cards and mana for them she has already dominated the board and left you with no health.

 

And if somehow you survive long enough to play your big minions, she either kills them on the next turn with her spells, or she uses a weapon and pretty much kills herself way before you're ready.

Don't be afraid to restart for better draws. If you have a bad start, drop it and restart. 

You need those early murlocs, such as the Bluegill, to get straight onto board ASAP. As the guide states, Bluegill + BoW can start really well, given that it allows you to draw into the other murlocs you need.

Use them to keep her occupied while throwing your removals out freely. You're not looking to beat Malchezaar by clearing his board. You want to simply Anyfin and kill him. To make this work, use your murlocs to trade with as much of Nazra's pressure as possible.

As soon as you have your murlocs out early, you can start healing yourself back up and simply waiting to draw Anyfin. Once you have both, transition and win!

But the early minions get killed immediately while hers survive, and when minions like sludge belcher that can kill her minions get played, she kills then immediately. Then she has a full board and a ton of armor and you're left with no more minions to kill her with even if you wipe the board.

 

But even surviving to that point is almost impossible for me since consecration only does 2 damage so a board clear can't happen until like turn 6, where you're taking a minimum of 18 damage that turn

Is there any chance you can show me either a written or video record of a normal attempt for you? I can probably help a lot more after seeing what's going wrong and if it is simply RNG, misplays or the deck.

I am trying to beat the Karazhan expansion without crafting new cards, and I've been really struggling with this boss especially since I cannot make this deck at all due to having no murloc warleaders or control paladin class in general.

Is there a deck that is worth trying to beat this boss that contains only commons and rares from the wotog/classic set? Even if the winrate is lower I do not mind, I just want a deck that has a reasonable chance of beating this boss in less than 5 hours without having to waste dust on getting new cards.

Do you have the necessary cards to build something like a Control C'thun Priest? You just stall and stall until you push Malch over, then C'thun and smash boss.

It might be worth looking into, you can make a pretty cheap deck. I'll find a decklist for you.

I skip the first turn and play the charge Murloc on the second, then she either uses fiery war axe and kills it or uses the minion with "deal one damage to a minion and give it two attack" to kill it. On the next turn I use the other murloc card and she kills it with "bash" and attacks me. 

If I have a card for turn 4 it's usually the weapon so I'll kill one of her minions because there are a few by now, and she'll get more on her turn and attack again. Turn 5 I'll play sludge belcher to try and get her to kill her minions on it, but she normally kills it with a weapon instead.

turn 6 I usually have a clear by now so I wipe the board and she plays more minions and attacks and gets my health within lethal range so I use a heal card in turn 7.

Turn 8 I use ragnaros if I have it, I'm back under 10 health but he heals 8 health every turn. She almost always kills him with a bash and her big weapon on the next turn.

The cards I'll have at this point are usually anyfin can happen, consecration, lay on hands, and maybe a few cards that reduce a minions attack to 1 but have no way to avoid lethal on her turn.

 

I don't have much experience with control paladin though, so I'm sure I am doing something completely wrong. I just don't know how to keep my minions alive

So, just a few thoughts:

  • You can board clear as early as turn 4 if you need to (Pyro + Equality)
  • Solemn Vigil can be combined with the combo above to refresh your hand.
  • Ivory Knight can just gift you more board clears, as well as another Anyfin with a +10 heal.
  • I would advise use your mulligan to completely push for early game. Ignore everything that you MIGHT need later on, such as Rag or Tirion. Push for that early clear and draw as much as you can.

So, here's the advice/list as promised:

  • You are building an ultra control Priest, with the aim of stalling until your C'thun is buffed beyond belief.
  • When you are ready, play Emperor to reduce Brann and C'thun.
  • Transition into Malch, then play both.
  • If you don't have any of the cards, let me know and I'll do my best to give a suggestion for replacement.

      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.
      Deck code / link: 
      AAECAaoIFKjuA6bvA4b6A6SBBMORBMeyBOm2BOnQBJjUBLjZBJfvBKTvBNWyBODtBIqSBdWyBPuRBfSgBbzwBODtBArG+QPTgASVkgTblATgtQSWtwSywQTFzgS12QS22QQA
      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.

      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?
