Now that the Naxxramas heroes are done, it’s on to the Blackrock Mountain heroes! The Grim Guzzler is the first duel and his hero power is to summon 2 of his minions (and one of yours) onto the battlefield for free. It ends up being a slugfest because powerful minions are on the board from the firs turn – you just have to make sure that yours are better than his.

I went with Druid because I needed a lot of taunts (seeing as he gets 2x the minions). I put a bunch of hefty minions and then a bunch of spells (hoping that I would draw spells and my minions would get randomly pulled onto the battlefield). Here’s my deck:

  • Innervate x 2
  • Naturalize x 2
  • Mark of the Wild x 2
  • Wild Growth x 2
  • Annoy-o-Tron
  • Anodized Robo Cub x 2
  • Healing Touch x 2
  • Mark of Nature x 2
  • Poison Seeds x 2
  • Abomination x 2
  • Sludge Belcher x 2
  • Cairne Bloodhoof x 2
  • Force-Tank MAX x 2
  • Ironbark Protector x 2
  • Kel’Thuzad
  • Volcanic Lumberer x 2
  • Deathwing

You’re at the mercy of RNG on this one, but I beat him within 5 tries (I was a close a couple of times). Nothing noteworthy (or overly lucky) about this match; just glad that it didn’t take me too many tries.
