If you can play the leper-gnome creating legendary before you die, it's an OTK vs taunt dreadsteed.

Definitely gotta try that.

Does anything beat Dreadstead? Silence, but otherwise, voidcaller puts it in taunt spot and you you cant get by with minions.

Silence doesn't work.

Silence should prevent Dreadsteed from resurrecting, no?

I tried using Druid silences to counter opponent taunts but it didn't work.

The taunt won't go away as it is granted by Dorothy. The card text on the card itself will be negated. So, you'd have to kill Dreadsteed (or whatever else) one more time after it is silenced to destroy it for good.

This Brawl is weird. I'm using a Purify Priest deck. The idea is that the free Taunt gives you more ways to use cards without a Silence activator.

Silence
Zombie Chow
Purify
Ancient Watcher
Auchenai Soulpriest
Eerie Statue
Barnes
Holy Nova
Lightbomb
Ragnaros the Firelord

I won 4 games in a row, although I haven't hit Dreadsteed yet. Zombie Chow is extra nice here because you can normally trade it off without giving the opponent any health.

I've been trying something similar. I don't think my list is good, but I must've tanked my brawl MMR since I am getting pretty weak opponents.

PW:S
Ancient Watcher
Purify
Dark Cultist
Eerie Statue
Shadow Madness
Feugen
Stalagg
Entomb
N'Zoth

I think it should lose against a competent Steedlock, unfortunately. Problem is that a shadow madnessed dreadsteed appears on the taunt side. If I have a taunted dreadsteed, then there are a number of infinite damage combos available to the warlock (e.g. steed+flesheating ghoul+ironbeak owl).

(The same would be possible with a non-taunted dreadsteed, except if I had a charged dreadsteed then I could try tweaking the deck to allow pre-emptively using my own combo.)

This brawl is fun (deathrattles happen twice). Been having fun with my Hunter deck. I'll try a priest with mass silence next.
I'm wondering if Weasel Tunneler's deathrattle works twice, putting two of them in the opponent's deck. That'd be hilarious to multiply them.

PS: Weird. I could've sworn someone else had already posted about this brawl. Is something screwy happening with the forums that deleted the last few posts of this thread? Also, I don't understand why my Hearthstone noob thread got locked.

Weasel Tunneler has a bug that means that when it happens twice, one goes in your opponent's deck and the other in your deck.

It's not a bug, it's a counterintuitive rules interaction. That is, by the time the Deathrattle has resolved once, the card is in your opponent's deck and that means it's his card and you're now the opponent. This is the same rule that causes the Entomb/Djinni of Zephyrs nombo.

There is already a Disguised Toast video on the Weasel Tunneler interaction weirdness.

This weeks Tavern Brawl seems to be giving out a legendary if you win - me and my lad both got a Ledge ( I got Mukla  :-[ ) an epic and a rare which can't be a coincidence can it?

This is only the second Legendary I've got from a pack. The other is the awesome Yogg-Saron.

I got Alexstrasza. I didn't get an epic though, so at least that much must have been a coincidence.

EDIT: My friend didn't get a Legendary. So yes, it's just a (pretty amazing) coincidence. He did get two Epics though so the rates could just be a little higher than usual.

I can confirm that I didn't get a legendary. Got a golden common and a golden rare though, along with another rare.

Disclaimer: I haven't watched any HS videos lately so there's probably someone who already thought of this, but I just thought of this today and it's pretty cool.

My deck is as follows:

Ice Lance
Mana Wyrm
Mirror Image
Mistress of Mixtures
Flamecannon
Frostbolt
Sorcerer's Apprentice
Flamewaker
Emperor Thaurissan
Gadgetzan Auctioneer

The idea is to play Thaurissan on turn 6 (or turn 5 with the coin), Sorcerer's Apprentice and Gadgetzan Auctioneer the turn after that, and then you can keep playing an unlimited number of the 1-mana spells that discover cards. If you have a Mana Wyrm or Flamewaker in play, that makes things a lot more convenient, but otherwise you can just discover Ice Lances until they deal enough damage. (Ice Lance used to be Arcane Missiles, but that took way too much time)

So far, I'm quite comfortably 2-0.

Have you considered Ice Block Awaclus? Like, as a possible fail-safe?

I considered it, and it probably would have been good, but that was after I had finished doing my Mage related quests so I didn't actually test it out. In the one game that I lost, I think it might have given me some extra time (the main problem was that I didn't draw Emperor Thaurissan so I was 1 turn too late).

(Tavern Brawl where you choose a class and it gives you a level boss from the adventures to play as corresponding to the class you chose.)
The boss you get to play when you chose hunter (the skeletal dinosaur) is sooo fun to play.

Oh damn, didn't think about Skeletal Dinosaur (super pain in the ass boss in Heroic though).

I won with Paladin, who gives you the Chess Boss with a  piece discover hero power. It's kinda funny to see the Chess mechanic up against a more conventional deck.

The chess pieces are pretty ridiculous. It loses to the evolve lady, but it beats normal deck pretty fast in my experience.

I found Grobbulus (Rogue) to be the most well rounded and fun to play Boss.

I wish I'd played the Boss one more, I only played as Warrior (Grim Guzzler) for a quest and it was a mirror match. Should have tried some of the others out.
