Last updated on Aug 11, 2016 at 18:21 by Sottle 13 comments

This deck can be used to defeat Silverware Golem on Normal mode and is comprised only of Basic cards. It has multiple ways to address the opponent's 1/1 Plates that are the key to his strategy. If you can use cards such as Elven Archer and Arcane Explosion to keep his board clear, he will have difficulty using any of the cards in his deck that buff the plates effectively.

Mulligan for Elven Archer, Arcane Missiles, and Goldshire Footman. If you are able to get at least one of these cards in your opening hand, you will be able to answer the opening Plates from your opponent and stop them from flooding the board too much. This is key, as early board dominance is the only way your opponent will be able to win.

After this, the game becomes quite straightforward but you should try to keep an Arcane Explosion in your hand and not use it recklessly so you can answer your opponent's ability to generate 5 1/1 Plates at once. In an emergency, you can Flamestrike this board state, which is why that card is also included in the deck, but Arcane Explosion is a much cleaner answer.

The key to the fight overall is keeping the opponent's board clear of 1/1 Plates, as this will completely neutralise most of the cards in your opponent's deck which are focused around buffing the 1/1s. Do not get greedy to finish the game quickly by attacking your opponent directly, and instead focus on board control until you have complete dominance.
