Taunt Warrior isn't standar archetype. It's an archetype focused on going wide with cheap, buffed taunt minions. Against slower decks, it aims to build up boards and beat opponents down before they have a chance of responding. Against aggressive decks, it aims to stop early waves of aggression with taunts, weapons and AoE effects. Like typical midrange decks, it aims to adapt its game plan based on stopping the opponent from completing its own gameplan.
When the early game of Taunt Warrior doesn't go as planned, the deck aims at discovering answers to its current situations. A good Stonehill Defender or Frightened Flunky can change the momentum of any game. Versatility is key, and Taunt Warrior aims to adapt to any situation it comes across.
