This is the first deck I’ve published here on hearthpwn so bear with me. I wanted to create a deck that had an answer to both control decks, midrange, and the popular aggro decks in the current meta. I’ve edited this deck a ton and this is what I’m currently using. I’ll update it as I continue to change things out but so far this deck has gotten me from rank 20 to rank 11 in roughly 4.5 hours this April season.
This is 100% a control deck as it has answers to early and midgame meta while having a very strong finish. With 2 Antique Healbots, Siphon Soul,Lord Jaraxxus, and Alexstrasza it’s hard for any opponent to get you all the way down.
After this first wing opening in BRM I added in Emperor Thaurissan because he’s amazing. He is often played before any of your other large minions making him a target for silences, Shadow Word: Death, and any removal with the exception of BGH. On top of being a midgame target Thaurissan allows your larger minions to be played at a bare minimum of one turn earlier. If you don’t have any large minions in your hand he can help make other removal combos significantly cheaper.
As I mentioned earlier this is a deck where you usually have at least 4 or 5 cards in your hand. Thaurissan is essentially a 1 mana 5/5 when you have 4 other cards in your hand. The value from him is insane.
Turn 3: Shadow Bolt which is never anticipated by an opponent.
Turn 6: Siphon Soul
Turn 8: Twisting Nether - this is one of my favorite removal spells to whip out. The most common scenario I've run into is when I'm up against a midrange or control deck and it's well past turn 8 but they have 2 or more minions out and a very small hand, or no hand at all. Needless to say this card has won me many games I should have lost.
I ran Corruptionfor a long time in this deck but I ended up taking it out because the value just wasn’t there.
Anyways let me know what you think and I’ll keep you updated and try to respond to any questions.
