    (...) Lots of tremendously terrible AI decisions. :D

     

    That last part got me laughing real good : so relatable ^^
    Also, thanks for posting your deck lists. Having more options may certainly help other users 
    Cheers

    Thanks a lot, Horus! I did it on the first try with your deck and it was cheaper than others I had seen. Win-win.

    You are welcome!

    Hello fellow Hearthstoners and other curious,
    My list are getting some views and made it to the front page, so I guess there was a demand after all for such guide. It wasn't exactly the community experience and involvement that I was secretly hoping for, but definitely a convincing start. How knows, maybe the participation will be at the rendez-vous for the next adventure release, or maybe I'm too hasty to get it done and it is too soon just yet to call the experiment over with this G's awakening.

    One thing that is for sure, after completing the Heroic adventure, is that the adventure was easier - and to some extend predictably easier to accomplish - than previous iterations. When things are put in their respective context, it makes it obvious that Naxx used to be hard given the available pool of card to complete the challenge, as for now - after countless overly powerful expansions, sets and synergies - the availability is off chart. Still, only Galakrond himself seemed to have been ''challenging'' as for the rest was mostly a walk in the park - a cool theme park with a fun story - but just a ride ...
    The difficulty level could have been increased a notch or two, so your card back actually means something and not just a participation medal ; as the french would put it ''À vaincre sans péril on triomphe sans gloire'' which roughly translates to ''A victory with no peril is a vain triumph with no glory''.

    That was my two cents.
    Thank you for your attention

    Used Mecha'thun Warlock for all, with some adjustments for the "harder ones" (Ooze, etc). Was a fun story though :)

    For Heroic Galakrond I used a variation of rez priest deck.  Slotted in a shadowform, mindblasts, and Alexstraza.  Ended up surviving him into fatigue and kept a taunt wall breathing.  Gave him the mind blast for the final blow.

    A friend of mine and me are trying to defeat Galakrond Heroic with only standard cards - we usualy only play standard and therefor we want to defeat Galakrond without any Wild cards - or at least without Wild Legendarys or Epics!

    Any suggestions - so far we've tried different builds of Rezz Priest, Highlander Mage, Control Mage, Control Priest, Highlander Paladin, Highlander Rogue. Also tested some Zoolocks and aggro Decks but Control seems to be the best shot.

    Freeze Mage was the best so far, but without some wild cards like Ice Block it is realy hard :)

    That's a seriously good question, and a hard one too. The first few wings I managed with mostly Standard-ladder-ready lists, but when things became harder, I was naturally going to make the most of my extended wild collection ... I know some said that they Milled the last bosses to death, but I now wonder if it can be achieved with standard cards only ... I will have to look into it, as without insane late game value and early means to survive till the later stages, it's going to be an extra challenge to defeat Galakrond. Control would also definitely be my top pick

    Alright, so I think I got it:

    You will need Knife Juggler with Radiant Elemental along with Test Subject, Embalming Ritual & Holy Smite ; from there, you will be able to deal infinite damage to your subject while juggler ping for free!

    ... oh wait, Radiant Elemental is Un'Goro tho ...

    For whatever reason, I was having a pretty hard time beating Heroic Togwaggle, so I thought it might be fun to mess with him using Grizzled Wizard and Sir Finley Mrrgglton. Turns out that Grizzled Wizard is even worse than a meme, because it didn't work. I sat there thinking the game was delayed, but alas, the functionality was broken.

    I ended up beating him anyway (thank you Kobold Stickyfinger) but it still made me sad.

    I crafted grizzled wizard with Emperor Thaurissan in mind. I was sorely disappointed.

    Thanks for the reply - we already managed to kill him with standard only cards :) 

    We made a Standard Freeze Mage and got him down with after a few tries - once you get lucky enough to draw all your freeze Spells you just have to hit him with Alex and Fireballs / Pyro etc
