There is also Mind Blast + Duskbreaker apparently. That seems good too.

I've heard of some other interesting ones like Murspark Eel + an even card for Shaman and Wax Elemental + Earthen Might for Druid.

I did Gibbering Mouther + Shadow Ascendant.  A Twig/Starfire druid got me to like 4 HP then gave up.

Yeah I'm happy Top 2 is back. It's very good this time. So far I'm seeing very high deck diversity.

I'm not even sure what I'd consider the strongest decks:
  • Mage obviously has some good ones: Black Cat + Arcane Missiles, Mana Wyrm + Arcane Missiles, Mana Wyrm + Primordial Glyph.
  • Druid does well with Naturalize-based decks. I don't know what pairs well with it, though picking a minion seems wise so that you have the option of naturalizing your own minions.
  • For Priest, Duskbreaker is pretty great. I got a pretty good winrate pairing it with Thoughtsteal, though there's probably a less greedy way to do it.

For Druid decks, Plated Bettle might be good to pair with Naturalize.

I ran murkspark decks for a bit. First I tried pairing with Fireplume Phoenix (for no particular reason), then with Faerie Dragon (to counter naturalize decks). They did OK but not that well compared to the other decks I tried.

Earthen Might is a Shaman card. I played someone running Earthen Might Glacial Shard and lost vs it. I didn't get very good results with either the Glacial Shard or Wax Elemental variants, but I didn't play them for very long.

Ooh wow I was thinking Earthen Scales.

Now that I think about it, Earthen Scales doesn't seem all that good with Wax Elemental.

The best was the Call to Arms Knife Juggler where I proceeded to Naturalize and burn all his jugglers leaving him with a hand of useless Call to Arms.

I hate mill decks. I resigned as soon as I saw someone play naturalize in this Tavern Brawl. It's just no fun playing against those decks.

Well, it's totally sensible to resign auto-lose matchups in this brawl, and there are a lot of matchups like that. It's kind of the point of it, I think.

Some combinations that do well vs Naturalize, if you're looking to win (though I haven't played these all in reality):

Anything with Faerie Dragon wins. For example, Faerie Dragon + Duskbreaker or Murkspark Eel + Faerie Dragon.

Against Naturalize + Ferocious Howl (or other non-minion), Thoughtsteal+Duskbreaker wins. Steal their naturalizes and naturalize each duskbreaker on the same turn you play it. The Druid can't do anything. (Don't play Ferocious Howl.)

Against a Naturalize deck not running healing, any Mind Blast deck should win.

Mana Wyrm + Primordial Glyph felt unbeatable when I played vs it with a Naturalize deck.

Edit: TBH, Naturalize decks feel kind of weak to me. They lose to a lot.
