HEMET-RENO MECHA'THUN

(UPDATED: JUN-2020)


STRATEGY / TACTICS: 

Each turn you have cards either to draw more cards, or to clear the board. Other than those, there are only key cards that remain when you use Hemet, Jungle Hunter and are important for the win.

The win condition is to simply have Mecha'thun killed while you have no more cards left in deck or in hand. Play smart and you will always have moves - its possible to reach the highest ladder score!


CARDS:

DRAWING: Bloodmage Thalnos, Dirty Tricks, Loot Hoarder, Novice Engineer, Shiv, Fan of Knives, Elven Minstrel;

DEFENDING: Backstab, Plague of Madness, Serrated Tooth, Cheap Shot, Eviscerate, Sap, Shiv, Fan of Knives, Shadow Strike, Reno Jackson, Evasion;

BURNING OWN DECK: Hemet, Jungle Hunter will leave you with only the key cards - Ticking Abomination, Anka, the Buried, Reno Jackson, Mecha'thun;

WINNING: Anka, the Buried > Mecha'thun > Ticking Abomination with Backstab, Eviscerate, Shiv, Serrated Tooth, Shadow Strike even if the opponent is immune!


WIN / FAIL CONDITIONS: 

CARDS TO GET RID OF: Use Cheap Shot card before the final kill or the hand will never get empty, can be used on own minions. If Sap stays for too long and the opponent has no minions to use it on, it can become impossible to win.

CORRECT TIMING: Do not use Hemet, Jungle Hunter if you have nothing to kill Mecha'thun with - Serrated Tooth can be used for this against the opponent's minions. If Anka, the Buried gets burned you probably could not pull the kill combination off, because it would be hard for you to play a 10-cost minion and deal 10 damage to it all at once.


BEST OPENING HAND:

Always keep Hemet, Jungle Hunter if dealt. Also keep any draw mechanics cards. Never keep cards of 5 or more mana - they will be useless until later.


REPLACEMENTS: 

DO NOT REPLACE: Do not replace Reno Jackson if you want higher chances to stay alive, however because of him you in fact will need an extra turn finish, but if you have an extra damage card to make his health 5 or less you will not need to spend an extra turn. You can not win if Mecha'thun gets burnt. Evasion quite often saves life. Do not replace Serrated Tooth, it is very much needed. Ticking Abomination helps clear all 5-health minions from your side of the board, so its a key card.

NEW UPDATES: Replaced x1 Counterfeit Coin with x1 Elven Minstrel card to help in draw during game or after playing Hemet, Jungle Hunter to get the rest of the cards out. It does not burn like the rest of the cards. The coin was cluttering the hand if draw mechanics did not get more draw cards out.


GAMEPLAY VIDEO:

Not the best gameplay, because the Bad Luck Albatross slowed down the finisher, but shows he strategy against the same type deck with a fast draw. If you are playing against a slow deck, or a wall priest you will win thanks to your fast pace.
