Hearthstone: Buff A’Din

Hello everybody, Geek Generation here.

After the dismal outcome of Draw A’Din, i scrapped the whole idea and went for another theme. This time, it’s Buff A’Din. I had a much easier time getting wins with Buff A’Din.

2 x Avenge
2 x Blessing of Might
2 x Noble Sacrifice
1 x Equality
2 x Truesilver Champion
2 x Blessing of Kings
2 x Consecration
1 x Avenging Wrath

1 x Acidic Swamp Ooze
2 x Echoing Ooze
2 x Haunted Creeper
1 x Ironbeak Owl
2 x Harvest Golem
2 x Shattered Sun Cleric
2 x Dark Iron Dwarf
2 x Defender of Argus
1 x Spellbreaker
1 x Loatheb

The biggest difference between the two decks is that the mana curve has been pushed down, Buff A’Din has more aggro play than Draw A’Din. The highest mana cost minion for Buff A’Din is only 5, Loatheb. The deck is no longer about using card advantage to last to an end game that cannot be won. Instead, it focuses on killing off opponent’s minions while keeping yours alive until you assemble the Echoing Ooze + Blessing of Kings combo.

The combo has so much win in it that mulligan strategy actually evolves around them. Always keep Echoing Ooze and Blessing of Kings in your starting hand. And if either of those cards are in hand, then try to keep The Coin, if you have it, for playing the combo. A turn 5 double 5/6 is usually a win. Unless your opponent is a Paladin too, then you might want to play around Equality.

Other than the combo, the deck mostly plays itself. Try not to activate Deathrattle unless you have to. They’re there to act as recovery against opponent’s board control. Also try not to buff minions with Deathrattle, otherwise you would be giving the opponent a chance to kill two birds with one Silence.

Geek Generation out.
