Strategy and Deck Building

When building a deck to beat Gluth, your main focus will be dealing with his pressure on the board, while keeping an eye out for his Jaws. Since Gluth plays many Deathrattle minions to buff his weapon, you will have to rely on weapon removal and preferably not play Deathrattle minions of your own.

Acidic Swamp Ooze and Harrison Jones will be great additions for your deck and should be used before or after you have cleared the board from any minions with Deathrattle. Once you have taken out Jaws, you should consider taking out Gluth's Zombie Chows (if there are any on the board) in order to heal yourself.

Decimate will diminish the value of your minions, which makes minions with Divine Shield an excellent choice for your deck as they can always take an extra source of damage.

The easiest way of defeating Gluth is to play a Freeze Mage deck with few minions and simply control the board and his Jaws until you are ready to bring him low with Alexstrasza and go for the kill.

To help you beat Gluth, we created the three decks presented below. You can also get some inspiration from them to create decks for other classes.
