This new co-op Brawl against Nefarian is really well made imo, they improved a lot from the Mechazod one. I played twice and I always got Priest, I think I'll try some other time and see if I get Shaman.

I suggest to read this first so that you know the 2 points when he "enrages" and what happens at those times. It seems they forgot to say that he also becomes Immune for the rest of the turn when that happens, and knowing that allows for a better card management (e.g. you don't burn Bloodlust like someone I played with did ;)).

yeah this brawl is really cool. although my team did almost get screwed when I had Northshire Cleric out and they summoned a healing totem which burned through like half my remaining deck. but still got there off a converted Dragonhunter.

:duel:

I don't know, it wasn't that entertaining. The whole thing is trivial until phase 3, and you could probably just 1-shot him from p2 or even p1 with the guy that grows out of control. Unless it's like iceblock, but I don't think that was the case.

It was kind of hectic the first time I played it, but the +1/+1 guy was also one of the last cards in my deck.

it seems that his health stops at the appropriate point when he levels up.

I find it quite tedious. There is not a lot or room for error. Both times I won it was by a very slim margin.

The old "Top 2" brawl has been revisited as "Top 3": now you choose 3 different cards and your deck is composed by 10 copies of each. I haven't been innovative and I revisited the old Mechwarper + Gorillabot A-3 combo, adding another Mech (Piloted Shredder). It makes the deck much worse since you're more likely to get slowed down by not drawing enough Mechwarpers, but I managed to win once with it, so it's OK.

Actually, I won a second time, but I can't take credit for it because I literally did nothing: my opponent played a deck with Innervate + Moonfire + Gadgetzan Auctioneer and lost by auto-milling. :D I was at 11 when fatigue destroyed him, so I think he could have won by running Living Roots instead of Moonfire: the extra mana from the Innervates might have been enough to cast them.

Feel free to share your decklists for this brawl, especially if based upon original/unpopular ideas.

It bothers me a great deal that the image has cards from different classes in it.
I played Wild Growth/Naturalize/Yogg and lost to Innervate/Healing Touch/Yogg then won against Innervate/Wild Growth/Yogg.

I won with Bluegill Warrior/Murloc Warleader/Anyfin Can Happen but I think Anyfin would've been better as a Grimscale Oracle, which would make the deck all neutral cards which is nice for whatever quest you may have. Anyfin does give you some resilience though, which is nice.

:duel:

I tried some silly but bad decks, then ended up winning with Murloc Tidecaller, Grimscale Oracle, Murloc Warleader.

It's great, because the mill decks keep pumping your Tidecallers with their Coldlight Oracles. Eventually they run out of Naturalizes and you win.

Discolock is fun. Mill druid is fun but mean and everywhere. Innervate + Raven Idol + Yogg is fun.

Im using living roots, power of the wild and savage roar for druid and since i just got a mage quest i may as well use the combo of sorcerer's apprentice, arcane intellect and forgotten torch even though i hate playing against it.

The fastest option for the current brawl should be Murloc Tidecaller. My original idea was Voidcaller, got smashed by Mind Blast, so I tried Mind Blast, got smashed by Murloc Tidecaller. After switching to that, I did 10 matches and never lost again. Even in the mirrors, my opponents weren't making the best trades (or they weren't trading at all, while I did). If you attempt this brawl this late, you might want to try Hungry Crab so that you smash the Murlocs. I don't know if they are that popular now, but they should be.
