    Yeah, so that's 30 gold in about 20 minutes with the Mech Warper/Iron Sensei deck.

    I'm going to be swimming in gold like Scrooge McDuck by the end of this brawl.

    Opponent plays N'zoth and fills his board

    I slam down Yogg who proceeds to fill my board with Wisps and then plays DOOM!

    Thanks guy!

    Mind Vision and Mind Blast.

    Use their strategy against them, and hit them in the face for 5.

    Yeah whatever critical thinking ability is required to create decks for this brawl I am surely deficient in.

    So far i'm like 0-7 with the things i've tried off the top of my head.

It will never be great, but I don't have the skill to get higher than like rank 15 anyway, so that doesn't really matter. I WOULD like to try and make the deck a bit better though. It's a C'thun Rogue deck. my biggest bane is aggro, but I'm not really sure how to make it better against aggro.

    The taunts are basically just for that, but I dunno. They don't seem to be helping too much.

    I'd agree with the more radical advice you got that Reno is...tough. The curve of your deck is kind of on the high side, too, so if you don't draw reno you're prettty screwed. And your C'Thun just isn't likely to be all that strong by the time you play him. Shadowstep helps, if it's in your hand...

    But less radical advice that keeps the idea of the deck...
    Against serious aggro you need fan of knives. Argent commander looks iffy in this deck, to me. Loot hoarder is very bad against aggro. It's hard to have too much draw, but you probably have too much draw, too. I'd put in Acidic Ooze. Aaand, I'd cut gnomish inventor for Azure Drake. Aaaand, I might try to run Thalnos, too. You have enough damage spells to make it worthwhile.

    Sooo..
    +Fan of Knives -Argent Commander (or something else if you really like him)--this'd also drop your curve a bit
    -Loot Hoarder +Acidic Ooze
    -Gnomish Inventor +Azure Drake
    +Thalnos -Grizzly maybe?
    I'd probably also cut Execute for BGH if you have it. Tough call. Leaves you helpless against Ysera, but a substantial improvement in most other matchups.

    edit: I think Kobold Geomancer might be better for you than Thalnos, actually.
    Yeah. thinking back on it, I fell into the trap of editing the deck before getting a good sample size of matches. I had like 3 matches in a row where I was just getting all the things I didn't need, so I added more card draw than I already had. I had a few matches where I just got ruined by aggro, so I added the taunts (which didn't really help anyway) I had a few matches where It was a war of attrition, so I reconfigured the deck for Reno, since I don't have much in the way of good heals. So basically my takeaway from this so far is "Yo...you don't know it's broken yet. Don't fix it"

    I'm loving this tavern brawl, honestly.

    Games are short and fun. Some decks are pretty clever, too.

    One of the tricky things with Reno decks is that the whole 1-of thing means you need draw to get the cards you need, but the average cost of the cards being a little higher means you don't really want draw in terms of card count (that's how you die with 8 cards in your hand). I think it's typically solved by running comparable cards. Like...you could run BGH AND Execute if you want to make sure you draw something to deal with big threats. It's a tough proposition for rogue in general, though. Which is too bad given how often rogues have to clear minions with their face.

    Alright, Flash Heal + Mind Blast failed horrendously against alarm-o-ancient-one warrior.

    I thought Thalnos + Mind Blast was screwed against my next opponent, Eye for an Eye + Forbidden Healing, until I realized I just had to spam Thalnoses on the board until I could OTK him, which I did on turn 8 with 4 8-damage Blasts.

    So far i'm like 0-7 with the things i've tried off the top of my head.

    What have you tried so far? I've gone thru the druid mill variations, upgrade+heroic strike and taunt+bolster warrior, trogg + lightning storm/trogg+crackle/trogg+totem golem shaman, ice block+fireball mage, ele destruction + hallazeal (very slow), astral communion + deathwing, starving buzzard + wolf / brave archer+leper Hunter, leper + Poweroverwhelming warlock...

    You should try the leper PO lock and see what you think.

    He did get to attack, I'm at such high health because he popped 3 blocks with the ancient one.

    Should be 4-5 packs worth (on top of your dailies) which will be awesome for you.

    I'm having trouble mulliganing against paladin and warlock. They either are the slowest decks (deathrattle or handlock) or the fastest (zoo and divine shield aggro). Is there anything to do other than pray? Or go for a mediocre hand against either and hope to draw the right part of your deck?

    I look at how many cards they're mulliganing back as an indication.

    In my experience less cards tossed back usually means Aggro.

    I could be completely wrong though.

    Mulligan for fast decks because you'll have less draw steps to fix your draw if you mulligan for slow decks and are wrong.

    Mulligan for fast decks because you'll have less draw steps to fix your draw if you mulligan for slow decks and are wrong.

    I've tried that but it's tricky because the slower matchups require value. So a turn 6 Justicar could be the difference between life and death in fatigue since the incremental value is huge.

    The meta near the top is definitely slower but I lose just enough to the aggro decks out there that mulligans are the difference between 45-50% win rates and 55% win rates.

    I appreciate the advice though. I'll try it out and see how it goes.
