Total Deck Rating
My 12-2 Nzoth Renolock Heroic Brawl list.
Proof and rewards:
This was my first run. Losses were against control nzoth shaman and pirate warrior.
Played this -Blastcrystal Potion and + the pirate eating crab and made it to 11-3
Thanks for the deck, this is just what I was looking for! I like the N'Zoth variant more than the Leeroy variant from Tempo Storm. I replaced the Gluttonous Ooze with a Dirty rat because I don't have Ooze, and at rank 15 (lol I'm casual btw), I'm somehow facing a lot of quest shamans and I can Dirty Rat the Megafin out of their hands :P
That sounds like a great adjustment to make.
Why Zombie Chow instead of Mistress? Does the extra 1 minion health outweigh the 4 life?
Yes, I would say so.
Congrats. 12 wins is mostly luck though that you avoided certain matchups.
Thats a pretty amazing list. Tried finding a spot for the Firelord?
Unfortunately I don't think there is space for him. I just can't see him doing enough for being an 8 drop. He has like no synergies with the rest of the deck. I'd rather put in Loatheb or perhaps a Spellbreaker.
Maybe you could find a slot for him if you cut the N'zoth package, but then again I think you might just end up with a worse deck.
ragnaros is unplayable in wild. in some matchups even dr.7 is a dead card(pirates, egg druids etc)
i personally play mountain giant over dr.7 cuz dont wanna summon boom bots with nzoth and versus slow decks you can play giant on turn 4
Okay, I tried this, finished 5-3. That's not a bad result tho, but could be better.
Won 2 very strange decks (Priest and Pally, handmade and garbage to be honest), 1 pirate warrior, 1 Vlpz's Nzoth shammy and 1 I don't remember.
Lost to Fr0zen's druid, but was pretty even matchup. He got lucky on early Jeeves and then on warlock ability from Sir Finley.
Lost twice more to Reno-Nzoth priests. They are pretty much counter to this deck, cause losses were very miserable by fatigue, tho inevitable. It's almost impossible to break through taunts, then N'zoth, then Warden -> 40 HP, then Reno. If you're not lucky enough, he'll bury 2nd Reno (yours) into his deck.
Therefore, I'd highly recommend teching Acidic Swamp Ooze into something more profitable like maybe Loatheb. I don't know to what exactly, but this deck really lacks counters to priests.
agrro druid is op aginst renolock (:
Interesting that you say that cause I actually met the same Nzoth Quest Reno Priest three(!) times during my run and beat him all three games. This after 7+wins so he probably knew what he was doing as well. One game was extremely close where he thoughstole my jaraxxus but apart from that it felt quite favorable as long as you could set up a good turn to play jaraxxus.
So yes, although I agree you could possibly change the ooze to a loatheb or something else (was my first run and was expecting more pirate wars and paladins hence the double wep tech, which turned out to not factor in much) which might improve your chances in other matchups. Especially with mage probably being more popular now that thijs did well with it. However, against priest the counter is simply jaraxxus. Need to play him early enough to not die to fatigue though since it takes a while for him to run out of answers and health.
I would actually like to fit Loatheb in, which I kinda realized after starting the run, so I might try him instead of one of the Oozes if I do another run. Thaks for sharing your experiences with the deck anyway.
I guess I found a nice replacement for minor oozeling - Spiritsinger Umbra. She can be really devastating with Sylvanas.
As ever with these lists, going 12 wins is an outstandingly amazing claim to be making... when not providing any information that one did in fact go 12 wins with the list.
Sorry but without that, the title is misleading because there's no way to actually know if you went 12 wins or not. You could've very much so done so but... without proof... not much to talk about on this subject.
Ah, my bad. I can post proof.
EDIT: Added screenshot proof + rewards
Alright, now its better as you actually backed up your claim! ^^
Also congratulations on getting 12 wins! :D
