Streaming the deck for the next few hours Thurs 11:15 AM Pacific - 3 PM Pacific
This is probably the most fun I've had winning with a Hearthstone deck. I'm currently about 15-2. There's nothing more fun than playing with giant threats. Ok there is, playing with giant threats and then copying them. Oh wait, don't forget stealing your opponent's threats!
There is a good mix of giant bodies and minions or spells cost 5 or less. Essentially, this allows you to play 1 big drop or 2 decent drops. For instance, turn 1 could be Nefarian into turn 2 Faceless and Loatheb. Play your guys and then remove or steal your opponent's cards.
There are 5 gut wrenching individual removal cards for big dudes and 2 board wipes. Not much is going to survive that.
The best possible card to start with is Alexstraza. A turn 1 Alex is almost an immediate victory.
Odd Card Choices:
Resurrect - Let me get this straight, you think it's odd that a 2 cost giant creature is in the deck. Look at the list, there is almost nothing in the deck you would be upset paying 2 for.
Mindgames: Theoretically, most people are playing with big drops. Therefore, you are often getting a 4 cost big drop.
The Black Knight: I thought druid fat taunts would be popular. Thus far TBK has mostly been for blowing up Sludge Belcher.
Antique Healbot - Fits our 5 slot and is a great heal.
Mulligans and Matchups:
Your goal is to play on your first turn a big drop. With this in mind I prefer Alexstraza or Ysera. Both provide immense value turn 1. Surprisingly, I do not like Dr. Boom turn 1. The reason is that your goal is to also keep Resurrect and abuse it. Theoretically, your dream start is Alexstraza or Ysera turn 1. Turn 2, double Faceless Manipulator. Turn 3, Resurrect when one dies. The game is essentially over at that point.
There is a very strong Gadgetzan Rogue deck out there. If you are against rogue, you have to assume they will combo you out from nowhere by means of a concealed Malygos or Gadgetzan, or both. Therefore, against Rogue you should probably keep Lighbomb in your opening hand.
Streaming and VODS:
