6- Early game rushdown with double Divine Shield combined with a Stormwind Champion and Avenging Wrath to finish off the game.

8- Managed to get off a 8/3 Flesheating Ghoul with Defender and some other cards, which he Arcanite Reapered intolfinished it off with an Avenging Wrath

9- Hit him with a 8 ATK Flesheating Ghoul early on, it went on to become a 16/1 but got silenced by his topdecked Ironbeak Owl. End off with a Humilty and Avenging Wrath finisher on his Owl and Yeti.

11- Didn’t mange to get many high Health minions but managed to trade off quite well with him. Lost out in the end to double Swipes.

Result: 8-3

Rewards: 215 Gold, 1 Expert Pack (Managed to get a Golden Sunwalker/Secretkeeper and another Golden Common which I forgot, so not too bad)

Post run thoughts:

The deck did much better than I expected, it didn’t have a lot of good removal but it had a high amount of low Mana creatures. This allowed me to rush my opponent’s down most of the time, securing me a really good early game.

The Argent Protectors did really well for me, allowing me to get great value from many of my minions (especially Flesheating Ghoul and Questing Adventurer)

Flesheating Ghouls did quite well especially when I have 2 Noble Sacrifices to protect and pump them up at the same time.

Speaking of Noble Sacrifices, they helped me protect my 2 drops after I set them on the first turn. This allowed me to play more aggressively in the early game.

The Avenging Wrath put in tons of work, usually allowing me to end the games earlier or get rid of big creatures. Having synergy with both Humility and Equality helped out too.

The only thing that I disliked quite a lot from this deck is the Coldlight Oracle, but I was forced to pick it because the other options were even worse (including an Angry Chicken).

Faced quite a lot of Mages today, but I did well against them because I was usually able to nearly finish them off before they reached that critical Turn 7 for Flamestrike.

Thats all for today! Heres a picture of my 16/2 Flesheating Ghoul!
