I chose to play rogue and I was planning to do some cool combos with Circus Medic and Y'Shaarj, the Defiler. Ended up getting Meek Mastery as my first passive and it pretty much hard-carried me though the 12 wins. Also got double battlecries, which helped a lot, and actually got me a few wins with the Medic by simply bouncing it 1 or 2 times. Never actually got to play Y'Shaarj, but hey I filled all the requirements listed in the OP. :)

Honestly I am pretty impressed someone was able to hit 12 wins this fast - definitely well played!
Rogue was a class I didn't consider optimal, but I am glad you were able to prove me wrong :)
For those who would like to give dib's deck a go, here's all the info you need.
First pool - Meek Mastery
Second pool - Battle Totem
Congratulations again for your noteworthy result! Let's see if someone will be able to do better!!
Thanks! It definitely wasn't optimal, in normal circumstances the only corrupt card I'd keep is the Medic. The other ones were just there to fill the requirements.
Honestly I didn't expect to get far with this deck, just goes to show the power of Meek Mastery.
Went with Ping Priest and added Insight, Auspicious Spirits and Circus Medic. Did not end up playing Y'Shaarj once in my run. Felt like I could have gone 12 wins with Rally the troops but lost to a Pally with Stargazing and a Murloc Shaman who got my Thoughtsteal into Shadow Vision into give Lifesteal to his board the turn I had lethal. Enjoying the challenge so far and will try a different deck since I really want to get to play Y'Shaarj at least once :). All my runs are Heroic btw.
Hey, you're the guy from Reddit! Congratulations for your run and welcome to the site :)
I'll update the leaderboard with your score.
For those interested in trying that Miracle Priest, here's the general information
First pool - Divine Illumination
Second pool - Rally the Troops
I normally lurk and check the Duels decks on your site since I suck at deck building myself and need to get ideas from others most of the time :D
I noticed the event on and I remembered the taunt druid deck regiskillbin played recently. I thought ok I can try this and changed it a bitThe sad part is I forgot to take a screenshot of my deck at the start of my run. However I always use HSReplay deck tracker so I will share replays of my all matches. Even If I'm not eligible for the competition I wanted to share my deck since I had so much fun and got a 12-1 win on Casual. This is the second time I've ever make it to 12 wins.I wanted to play Taunt Druid but since I don't have Greybough I didn't bother with Nzoth and decided to go with Clown/Survival of the Fittest package. Since I unfortunately got Sheldras Moontree on my packs I thought maybe I can get lucky and cast some big spells with It and included two more big spells Cenarion Ward and Best In Shell. I wanted not to play cheap spells because of Sheldras and added some discover cards for starting matches.I luckily got offered Meek Mastery on first bucket, since there are awesome neutral taunts I was very happy. On second bucket I got offered Endurance Training and from that point most of my games were just bulldozing everyone with huge and wide boards at early game and people couldn't keep up with all those stats. Ended up not using Y'shaarj or Sheldras that much, my only loss was against a bomb warrior on my third match before the Endurance Training, where I made a terrible choice to fill my board with 2/2's got rancored and lost the game.Here is my replays:
Hey there - thanks for creating a profile and joining this challenge!
I am happy that you were enjoying our usual Duels content, and even more that you decided to step forward :)
For the submission, no worries: we create a set of rules because we don't want anyone to exploit the system at the expense of other users. Yes, we ask for a deck list screenshot at the beginning of the run, but you literally posted all the replays of your run, which I consider equivalent of a proof if not even stronger.
Also, congratulations: you've currently taken the lead of this challenge!
Second pool - Endurance Training
Btw I've been trying to compete myself.
Despite a considerable amount of runs, the best one so far has been an 8-3 in Casual with Neo's Miracle Priest.
Here's the proof (both starting and final deck).
Went through quite a few more runs, really trying to make Warlock run since it has great Corrupt targets but best run so far was 6 wins. Here is another run going with a great starter (Murloc Shaman) deck but adding Corrupt package. Did not get to play Y'Shaarj given how quickly the games went.
You improved your most recent score: congratulations! I'll update the leaderboard to resemble it.
First pool - All Together Now
Finally i got a run with warlock i can post
Sorry, i'm bad at editing, can't even get images to show:)
Anyway, got 10 wins with a druid.
Last boss was priest with fireshaper and oops all spells...
Congrats for the result and thanks for the submission!
First pool - Mysterious Tome
