Assuming you don't top deck your solution from Slam I think the max damage you can do is the following:

You cast Warsong Commander, Frothing Berserker, Death's Bite, Dread Corsair x 2 (now free), Whirlwind

Your opponent's board should look like this:
Sludge Belcher 3/4
And yours should look like this:
Grim Patron 3/1
Grim Patron 3/1
Grim Patron 3/3
Grim Patron 3/3
Warson Commander 2/2 (can't attack)
Dread Corsair 3/2
Dread Corsair 3/2
Frothing Berserker (9/3)
Death's Bite

Send both 3/1 Grim Patrons in and then one of the 3/3s to finish the Sludge and it's death rattler. Now your board should look like this:
15/3 Frothing
Grim 3/2 (already attacked)
Grim 3/3
Grim 3/3
Dread 3/2
Dread 3/2
Warsong 2/2 (can't attack)
Death's Bite

You send everything face and you have 31 damage.


You can't have 8 minions on the board at once. You can't play both corsairs before the whirlwind and still get both patrons. This means your Frothing Berserker will have 1 less attack and you'll be 1 damage short.

I think I got the solution.


Warsong Commander -> Frothing Berserker -> Fiery War Axe -> 2x Dread Corsair (free from War Axe) -> Whirlwind

Your opponent's board should look like this:
Sludge Belcher 3/4
And yours should look like this:
Grim Patron 3/1
Grim Patron 3/1
Grim Patron 3/3
Warson Commander 2/2 (can't attack)
Dread Corsair 3/2
Dread Corsair 3/2
Frothing Berserker (9/3)
Fiery War Axe
2 mana left

Trade both Corsairs into Belcher, then the 3/3 patron into the Slime, gaining another 3/3 Patron.

Your board:
Grim Patron 3/1
Grim Patron 3/1
Grim Patron 3/2 (Already Attacked)
Grim Patron 3/3
Warson Commander 2/2 (can't attack)
Frothing Berserker (15/3)
Fiery War Axe (3/2)

Slam your 3/3 Grim Patron, gaining another Patron and boosting your Berserker by 1 attack.

Your board:
Grim Patron 3/1
Grim Patron 3/1
Grim Patron 3/2 (Already Attacked)
Grim Patron 3/1 (slammed)
Grim Patron 3/3
Warson Commander 2/2 (can't attack)
Frothing Berserker (16/3)
Fiery War Axe (3/2)

4X3 attack Grim Patrons + 16 Attack Berserker + 3 attack Fiery war axe = 12 + 16 + 3 = 31

^Right, but you mean Death's Bite    , not Fiery War Axe   .

Nvm. I counted wrong. I was thinking Fiery War Axe didn't make the Corsairs free.

Pretty sure he means what he said he means -- you're short on mana otherwise.

Shoot I didn't notice that. Well I was close anyways. Glad markusin got it.

IIRC Trump did find lethal, but it took him like 45 minutes after the game had ended

That's why I stopped playing Patron, it takes too long to find the right line of play and even when you do find it in time, you still have to perform everything and after a few games where I had to rush my turn and fuck everything up I switched.
