Buff Berserker and the one shot
Good deck, easy win
Still works, thanks! =)
Its a great deck, did it on the 3rd try or so. But its not that easy. You have to have both Divine Spirit, one Inner Fire and Gurubashi Berserker in your hand till turn 9 or so, to buff its health at once. Otherwise it wont survive long enough to get it to about 60 attack. Then clear the board one by one with your Gurubashi Berserker and one shot him on your turn. Notice, dont let him get 1 turn after you destroy Frostmourne, he will kill your minions for sure. Also dont leave any taunts on board, when he playes Frostmourne.This is a little collection of every deck ive defeated the Lich King with:https://www.hearthpwn.com/decks/1041027-beat-the-lich-king-3-decks-each-class
I made it my 2nd attempt, thanks!
1st try worked great thanks for the guide!
Got it 1st try! Swapped the Shadow Word: Death's for Shadow Word: Horror for an easy clear at the Frostmourne stage
took a solid 30 tries but I finally got it. Used Lightwell x2 as one of the top comments recommended.
WARNING: DO NOT TRY THIS DECK AT HOME!
Ok figured this out. I added in lightwells, this was key to winning.
apparently if you time to lightwell, and you first had enough minions to wipe his trapped souls except one, the light well will keep healing you, while it burns his cards as he draws.
i used that to buy some time to load up my board, then was ready to wipe his respawns, and go face.
see, you can get an edge for loading your board as such
use the aoe heal to heal up your team asap as well as keep clearing board if you can while also going face. If you don't wipe board, he will just buff his army and it will hurt later. better to keep that in check.
and finally you get an easy win at the end as the ai can't fight back at this point.
1. use lightwells
2. try have light wells and some minions to kill all but 1 shattered soul, or at least keep the numbers under 2-3 or lightwell cannot keep up healing you.
3. once you get enough cards and minions, only then you kill that last shattered soul. the boss new ability spawns but doesn't do much dmg this early on and you have a head start. also you can deal with the respawns, though ideally if you killed them prior to the shattered souls popping up is more ideal.
4. gurubashi i used the acolyte to buff their hp. i mostly used the inner strength and doubling hp for the light wells.
Thank You. Tried your strat with the wells and I had great success:D
Beat him first try
glad it helped :}
First try! Thanks! :)
this deck suxxx. Somehow, i ended up with 30/30 northshire cleric instead :/
1st try - thx
don't play for combo beserker - just valu trade everything and draw as much as possible,
after you break the weapon by killing each enemy minion (shadow word horror could help making this easier, but no need)
buff one high health minion up with the combo and gg
berserker is good to lure him out his removals, don't let him extend his board cauz of +2/+2
This deck is quite literally you praying that The Lich King wont play one of several ways to kill a minion.
Two Obliterates, and he could use Shatter 2x with Water Element or Glacial Shard, The Black Knight if you dare Bonemare buff. You cant dodge Glacial Shard unless your minion cant be targeted by spells, or he uses them both early. You could say the same for Obliterate, forcing him to use them earlier, but its all chance, and you're waiting too long in the game for him to use all 4 actions. It's also extremely difficult to handle the second phase since you're dedicating all your power to one minion. Therefore, you can only attack once. This is a simple concept, but you have to take up 6 turns to clear them all out, and thats 30 damage to your buffed minion because of Frost Mourne. If you add taunt to it, then he can trade them all in on one turn, BUT this allows him to kill of your buffed minion anyway, since it'll still be his turn. Usually using The Black Knight.
Almost impossible to get an OTK since it has to be during Phase 2 when he wont use spells to kill, and you have to keep your main minion alive during Phase 2, and it's losing 5 hp each turn while you lose 2-12 hp as long as theres nothing else to trade into, since it's supposed to be the berserker, although it's impossible to have the exact combo I say, lets assume you do and it's turn 5, play berserker, turn 6 and 6 mana. 2/7 + Both Kabal Talon Priest = 2/13, next turn 7 mana -> 2x Power Word: Shield = 2/17 and 5 Mana. Divine Spirit twice = 2/34 then 2/68. As great as that is, it's 7 cards you need in the exact order, and must also pray he doesn't obliterate on turn 5 or 6, not to mention once you have that 2/68, inner fire all you want, but it's going to be ignored by minions and you will eat all the face damage. The only self healing costs too much mana to reserve, and it's an expansion reward, not to mention that it will be one shot by Frost Mourne or get hit by the minions. Again, it's all chance and too difficult to reach, the trial and error would take ages. The card drawers are also useless. Just less chance to get your combo, and should of been replaced with something that would substitute for the combo or perhaps just a Coldlight Oracle so that your single card draws aren't mana wasted.
I should add, with Berserker turn 5, both Kabal Talon Priests Turn 6 and Power Word Shield 2x and Divine Spirit 2x, it's 7 cards you already NEED to have in your combo. Not to mention, turn 7 cant end with any taunt minions, even if you bring a Silence (which is another card to the combo if you do bring it) you would still fail to counter Anti magic shell. Anyway, you also need an Inner Fire by turn 8 or you might lack the damage (Looming Presence gives armor of course) So thats 8 cards in the combo that you NEED. Imagine how perfect a run you'd need.
Summary, unless you plan to spend the rest of your days waiting for the next F2P expansion using this deck, search for a new deck.
Nice one! First try, easiest Lich King game by far, thanks.
Took an hour or so, but managed it. Thanks!
B.t.w. I changed both Shadow Word: Death for Shadow Word: Horror. It made a quick end to the Frost mourn-fase....
Got it 4th try! Thanks for the deck!
This deck is trash tier. Requires perfect mulligan/draw + bad plays on his part. The same can be told for 99% of the other decks out there.
Considering he has like 4 removal spells relying on one buffed card is insanity. Tried 10 times, no luck.
It took me 10 tries, but it worked. Good deck.
