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.

This week's brawl has you spend your hero's health instead of mana for spells. My plan to win was to look for Shadowblade and Pickpocket (echo burgle spell), using Biteweed in the meantime (I still don't own Edwin). Once you play Shadowblade, your hero is immune for the rest of the turn, and then you can keep playing Pickpocket until the cards you get let you win.

I just ran an Arcane Artificer burn mage.  Stayed at 30 the whole game.
