The Challenger’s Deck

The Theme

    • Naga Sea Witch – The most underrated card in hearthstone
    • Started with the question – If you could play any 2 cards in hearthstone on the same turn, which would you choose?
    • Answer- GO ABSOLUTELY HAM

 

  • Theme – Go nuts with legendaries

How It Wins

    • Cheating out insane amounts of value by some sick card combos. Huge Threats on top of Huge Threats

 

  • Best win condition comes from being able to add +10/+10 to a minion already on board for lethal

 

The Key Cards

  • Naga Sea Witch
  • Aviana
  • Kun
  • Arch-Thief Rafaam
  • Fight promoter

Decklist

Creatures

  • 2 x Mistress of Mixtures : This over Zombie Chow as health for yourself. Try not to let it die until you’ve taken some damage.
  • 1 x Anoy-o-tron : Good for slowing down/staying alive
  • 1 x Faceless Shambler : The most DIFFICULT combo piece in this deck. Used after a 5 mana +10/+10 on any other minion from Arch-Thief. Otherwise just use it to stall. Try to get at least 6 health for fight promoter.
  • 2 x Hungry Dragon : Ok use for early, but prefered to be held to trigger fight promoter at 10 mana
  • 2 x Mire Keeper : ONLY RAMP, KEEP ON MULLIGAN
  • 2 x Naga Sea Witch : Essential combo piece. Try not to play except on 5 and 10. Only on 5 if you are going to lose if you dont.
  • 2 x Fight Promoter : Cycle, replaced ancient of lore
  • 1 x Ragnaros : Big threat, play whenever
  • 1 x Arch-Thief Rafaam : With the board presence of this deck, never take the 3/3’s. Almost always take the +10/+10 unless the 10 damage will give you lethal
  • 1 x Aviana : Another combo piece. This unto Kun into -> Literally anything
  • 1 x Cenarius : Used to slow, but more offen used as a “win more” by buffing a Naga and Soggoth
  • 1 x Soggoth the Slitherer : Again, just slow, stall, survive. Good on turn ten to block a Naga from dying to board
  • 1 x Ysera : Often low on cards, so try to keep this alive. NOT PART OF A COMBO. Don’t feel bad playing this at any time
  • 1 x Kun the Forgotten King : 90% hold for combo/10% armor when you’re going to die anyway

Spells

  • 1 x Living Roots : Hold on Mulligan and play 2 1/1’s
  • 2 x Wild Growth : RAMP RAMP RAMP, if you’re at 7+ mana, hold for draw
  • 2 x Wrath : Try to only use this to draw
  • 2 x Jade Blossom : Play as soon as able, ALWAYS
  • 2 x Swipe : You die to aggro, try to use this effectively
  • 2 x Nourish : Just keep ramping. Or you can draw cards late game if you get this too! Combo decks need draw, and this spell is fantastic for that.The Duel

    Card of the Week

    • Elise the Trailblazer – 5 mana legendary minion – 5/5 Battlecry: Shuffle a sealed Un’Goro pack into your deck
      • Un’Goro Pack – 2 mana spell – Add 5 random Journey to Un’Goro cards to your hand — Rarity works differently than actual packs. Guaranteed at least an epic. They said “very good chance you’ll get a legendary”
