Crazy game, me Handlock vs a mage. It was a freeze mage... variant I think. She had molten giants and echo, but didn't get the draw to play them together. The fun happened when I sacrificed my 2/3 into Reno Jackson to kill him.
Friends, come witness a tale of the most delicious Lethal ever!
It's the start of the new season, so I'm just playing a bunch of fun "whatever" decks. I get the idea to build a Battlecry-based Shaman Reno deck which is basically a ton of battlecry minions (even the dinky ones like Elven Archer) to synergize with Brann and Rumbling Elemental.
First ladder match... Face Hunter. He starts with the typical Leper Gnome/Secrets opening while I just play clean-up and try to stave off heavy damage. We get to the final moments on turn 9, I haven't drawn Reno at all (and never would), and have to use my sizeable board to take him down asap.
He has Huffer, Abusive Sargent, and an Eaglehorn Bow equipped, ready to take me down next turn. He, however, is only at 9 health himself. I've got 4 minions on board, including Rumbling Elemental.
I draw none other than Sideshow Spelleater, trade a small minion into his abusive, drop the Spelleater, Rumbling Elemental kills Huffer with his ability, I go face with everything, and deliver the killing blow with HIS OWN HERO POWER. Hah!
If you're curious, this was at Rank 17 right after the season reset, so this player also likely reached at least rank 5 the prior season, along with myself. Huzzah!

Building Quirky Decks Every Week, Loving Life at Rank 15!
I beat Freeze Mage as CW for the first time yesterday, felt amazing. I recently crafted Ysera and that gave my deck a really good boost, prior to that my deck had been closer to budget CW which gets rekt by other control decks.
Pro tip: Ysera is the most important legendary in control vs control game.
Omg just beat Midrange Shaman with CW and I can't even describe you how amazing it felt when I had Emerald Drake on board and Ysera Awakens and Ragnaros the Firelord in my hand while my opponent had 19 health.
Playing demon zoo against a Renolock. Fortunately, I recognized it pretty early and tried to play accordingly. (I haven't played much Warlock, so I still screw things up from time to time.)
He Reno'd from under 10 ("Sorry"), but somehow I managed to stay in the game and grind him down again. Was dreading a Jaraxxus drop, which would probably have ended it, but he never drew it, instead conceded when he popped my Voidcaller and saw the Doomguard that came out of it.
Was playing a tempo-ish Oil Rogue against Secretcancer, was playing around his early stuff nicely until he dropped the first Mysterious Challenger. He had stuff on the board, but I was lucky enought that the Avenge fell on MC so I could BGH it and trade the rest. I still had a 5/1 Loatheb and a 3/2 SI:7 on board and Prep in hand. He still had 2 cards in his hand, and played both: Shielded Minibot and Owl. He played both on empty board, and managed to topdeck the second MC. 3 secrets pop out and things didn't look good for me and my 8 health. But then I topdecked sprint, which I played imediately with prep. Note that he was at 20 Health. And I've got a Tinker's Oil, Deadly Poison, Blade Flurry and another Prep. So I run my SI:7 into face to trigger Get Down and played HP, Prep, Oil, Deadly, and Flurry and I had exact lethal. That was the closest and luckiest match in my memory
Mage played Reno Jackson not once, not twice, but four times. They echo of medivh'd the first, duplicated the second, and played all four, healing from around 8-16 HP to full health each time. They still lost. Screenshot proof for all you doubters:
