BEHOLD! Big Recruit Warrior

Last updated 4 years, 3 months ago by

      Inspired from this deck, I wanted to make my version, and I really liked the results of it. It looks more consistent, and every pull from either Barnes or Gather Your Party/Dimensional Ripper/The Boomship is worth it. If your "Big" senses are tickling, and you hate Big Priest but looking for a good and fun alternative option, this deck is just for you.


     Update: I'm very sad to state that Dr. Boom, Mad Genius will be nerfed soon. Since Dr. Boom, Mad Genius was used as a continuous value generator thanks to Delivery Drone, changing Dr. Boom to 9-Mana will make this factor irrelevant due to hard-execution. Thus, it's time to go back the roots with a pure Big archetype approach. Also, Barnes is nerfed as well but not much a big deal in this deck because "big stuff" starts at turn 5 onwards.



(Big Warrior is so fun!)



      No matter what deck you are playing against, always keep Revenge/Warpath/Blood Razor. In short, keep your AOE cards to survive against Aggro or anything until turn 5 to play your Direhorn Hatchling for defense or turn 6 (Gather Your Party). Then, have a blast with your Big minions.


      In this deck, Recruit or Summon mechanics are more consistent. If you have a look at these examples, then you can see why:



(Everything is going to be so Big!)


      Jokes aside, Silver Vanguard is the MVP here. If you pull out Kel'Thuzad or Grand Archivist, then you can start building a huge army. Examples above are clear as a cystal, so don't forget to check. Otherwise, use Emperor Thaurissan to close the gap between you and your minions.



      Here are the cards I forgot to mention, or look for substitions:

  • The Boomship: Pulls three big minions, then you can trade for board control.
  • Blatant DecoyDirty Rat from both sides are good for you. You can pull your Big minion while disrupting a combo piece of your opponent? Guess nerfing Dr. Boom, Mad Genius will worth utilizing it but I may switch to another Big minion such as Sneed if the results aren't good enough.
  • Geosculptor Yip: He is like Big Bad Archmage but better. Reason is: You can Recruit him via Silver Vanguard, and if you have more Armor, you can summon good drops other than 6-Mana ones. Any good 8-Mana minions (Sneed/Lich/Ragnaros etc.) or any good Big minion (Big Bad Archmage/Ysera etc.) should do the trick if you don't have Yip.
  • Rotface: Since we have Warpath/Blood Razor/Revenge, why don't we utilize him well? He is 8-Mana, thus a good target for Silver Vanguard. So, hurt Rotface to raise an overgrowing army of Legends. As for card alternatives for Rotface, they are same as I recommended for Yip, so have a look above.
  • Grand Archivist: His job is to trigger Gather Your Party/The Boomship/Dimensional Ripper. Since he costs 8-Mana, you can pull him via Silver Vanguard.
  • BrawlOk, I know, hitting Archivist into Brawl isn't that good when you are ahead. However, it can be a life-saver against Aggro matches. If needed, use Abomination/Baron Geddon/Tunnel Blaster, which are Big minions that have AOE to replace Brawls. Still though, if you are going to ask me which one would fit better, I would choose Brawl over anything else because it's the best board-clear.

    I don't like Yip here because you don't have much armor. I replaced with Ragnaros.

    Cool deck!  I recently opened Akali, the Rhino and have been thinking about a Big Beast Warrior with things like Oondasta and Amani War Bears to make use of him.  Might try modifying this deck's shell a bit to try it out!

      While the odds of happening Archivist into Brawl might hurt you when you are ahead, this combo can be a life-saver against Aggro matchups. All kinds of Big decks need to survive against Aggro matches, that's why I added Brawl.

      Lich King because Taunt and resources are better than 8 dmg random.
