Hearthstone Dr Boom Counter

Dr. Boom

I play as Grim Patron Warrior:

Option 1: Highest Success Rate
  1. Use Warsong Commander + Grim Patron to hit Boom Bot to multiply.
  2. Depending on luck, if the bomb explodes for 1 damage on the old or newly spawned Grim Patron, it will benefit you by multiplying. 2 damage on the new Grim Patron is also good. Killing your original Grim Patron or even the Warsong is fine. Face damage to you is also good provided you survive. Worst case is if it kills your newly spawned Grim Patron.
  3. Use Whirlwind/DeathBite's deathrattle on opponent's face to multiply your Grim Patrons and execute Dr. Boom. If you do not have execute, then DeathBite + last Grim Patron on Dr. Boom which is not the most ideal.

Option 2: Medium Success Rate
  1. Big Game Hunter (BGH) to kill Dr. Boom and Whirlwind/DeathBite deathrattle or vice-versa. The latter will have a lot of face damage but retain your BGH. So depending on whether you are near lethal.

Option 3: Lowest Success Rate

I tried Grim Patron and Whirlwind multiple times before. Not as successful.

Hearthstone Arena Match 5 (Paladin), Score 4-3 (final)


Finally, I was given a Paladin class choice and I gladly picked it. This deck drafted by Heartharena was completely crazy. No 7+ drops. Again no legendaries (have I got a legendary before in the first place?). Anyway, a little bit skeptical, let's give it whirl and everybody get in here!

Game 1

Paladin vs Shaman

Right off the blocks, my Light Justice took control. Throughout the whole game he could not get anything on the board esp. after my Demolisher was on board killing his totem or hitting his face or damaging his minions. Turning point was I killed both his Chillwind Yetis with 1 of my Mechanical Yeti on board. First with Mechanical Yeti and Light Justice, second time with 1 health Mechanical Yeti and Coghammer to divine shield my Mechanical Yeti. He never expected me to swap to my Coghammer with still 2 durabilities on my Light Justice. He did not see it coming. The Demolisher lasted throughout the whole game until he quited which was probably a mistake. It was dealing free 2-damage every turn. He used up his Crackle on my Dark Cultist and the Demolisher just demolished everything literally. Throughout the whole game, I had this incredible urge to play out my minions or summon a silverhand recruit but I know the devastating effect of Lightning Storm and MCT so I kept it at 3 all the time in order to not overcommit.

Amazing as it is, he had a legendary Toshley! His health in lethal, he quitted.

Score: 1-0

Well met!

Paladin drew first blood. Well met! Stay tuned.

Hearthstone Arena Match 4 (Rogue), Score 4-3 (final)

Game 1-Priest & 2-Mage (lost)

Rogue vs Priest/Mage

My goodness, my first experience with Rogue and I thought I would be going down 0-3. Really, absolutely nothing I could do to win the first 2 games.

Arena: 0-2.

Hearthstone Arena Match 3 (Mage), Score 4-3 (final)

Game 1 (lost)

Mage vs Druid

Interesting opponent as rarely Druid is a popular choice compared to Mage and Paladin. However, I did not have a good gut feeling and I was right. He consistently played value minions at every mana e.g. BRM Druid of the Flame, 2 x Druid of the Claws and that burn up most of my spells. He also cleared my minions with Starfall and Swipe. Anyway, I was trashed and trounced.

Arena 0-1. Disappointing start but not giving up.

Hearthstone Arena Match 2 (Mage), Score 1-3 (final)

Game 1

Mage vs Hunter

I was very much in control, perhaps too much control and my health went down really fast. Anyway, he had an explosive trap with my health at 4. So what could I do? Looking back, Kezan Mystic might be a worthwhile pick especially looking at the arena meta. So explosive trap and hunter's power killed me finally. He was also a turn from lethal.

Good play: Killed his Boulderfist Orge with a Fireball and a ping.
Bad play: Should have followed up to kill his 2/4 bird that increased the other minion attack by +1 with my 2 minions on board to reduce a 2 point damage by itself. I wanted to keep them for my Fen Creeper and Stormwind Champion.

His good play: Really aggressive to my face. He used a quick shot on an empty hand. Almost could not make it if not for the explosive damage trap.

Looking back, there was a Kezan Mystic offered and I did not take it. Perhaps I might try one out next time.

Arena 0-1.

Hearthstone Arena Match 1 (Mage), Game 7, Score 4-3 (final)

Hearthstone Arena

Game 7 (final)

Mage vs Mage

Turn 1 was good. He came out Mana Wrym, I answered with Flamecannon. He played Chug and Grizzly. At subsequent turns, I started to fall behind because of my draw and incomplete use of mana. Annoy-o-tron, Mad Scientist (no secrets), Earthen Farseer and Zombie Choy. He played really well with Chillwind Yeti, Questing Adventurer with coin and something else (perhaps an Orge Magi). Anyway, I fireball his Questing Adventurer and killed his other minion, leaving his Chillwind and my board clear. He came out up to 4 units one being the Imp Master. I killed the Imp generated by Imp Master and MCT, deep down hoping to steal his Dragonkin Sorcerer or at least the damaged 4/2 Chillwind. That might turn the game around a little bit. Alas, it stole the Imp Master. Next turn, he Flamestriked and he had 4 minions on board while I did not have a flamestrike on hand. Molten finally came, so Molten, Chillwind and Orge Magi but all was too little too late.

I emoted: "Well played"

Arena run final at 4-3.

Nevertheless, it is still my best run so far with the help of Heartharena. Thanks Heartharena!

Reward: 85 gold and a G&G pack.

Look out for my next arena run.

Everyone, get in here!
