Post TGT [Update]
- Illidan Stormrage has been removed (he will be missed) for the inclusion of Varian Wrynn. This is the type of deck Varian clearly wants to be in, and it shows.
I have been saving Commanding Shout to use with Grim Patron and Warsong Commander as a robust board clear. Though saying 'saving' would not be entirely accurate since it's a natural progression. However there might be cases where you might find Commanding Shout useful, but keep in mind you lose that Patron option should you decide to use it elsewhere. As long as it gives you strong tempo gain it has been used well. Please do not use the card just to cycle, with the exception of you looking for a hail mary.
This has been the warrior I have been using for a while and I have a lot of fun playing it. I created this deck in the early phase of BRM when Grim Patron was new and when Face Hunter just would not stop popping up at LEAST ever other match on the ladder. It has served me well against the early Patron decks and Face Hunters, which it locked out very nicely.
When King's Defender was first announced I was happy that I already had this deck for the weapon to fit in, but then the text changed and that dream was crushed. However, we now have another great tool which facilitates the deck's use of Taunts in the card Bolster.
I removed a Piloted Shredder and a Cruel Taskmaster from the original deck list (so you can try the original build if you like) to include double Bolster. That surely might not be the final change, but I figured I would finally share the deck and get opinions. I have a lot of fun decks sitting around and TGT is showing me a lot of cards that make them stronger. This is just the first of many to come.
The deck had x2 Grim Patron at first, but I switched out a Patron for Illidan Stormrage to up the fun, but also for a practical reason. I use Illidan with Warsong Commander to repeatedly spawn Flame of Azzinoth to trade out.
As it pertains to Warsong Commander, don't save her solely for Grim Patron, Illidan Stormrage and Mekgineer Thermaplugg. There are two Warsongs in the deck so feel confident about using one of them to give Sen'jin Shieldmasta, Sludge Belcher, or any of the minions with 3 or less attack charge. Make use of that ability when you have the chance to seize tempo.
I don't promise you legend, at least not yet, but I promise you one hell of a good time!
