Deck Import

This is an early build and could probably use some refinement.

Look for card draw and value spells in your mulligan: Arcane Intellect, Unstable Portal, Cabalist's Tome, and Firelands Portal. You want to kind of cycle through your deck and end up with either Violet Illusionist or Animated Armor. Try to avoid using too many of the high cost spells unless you have one of these minions on the board. Don’t just tempo these cards out, you should try to make sure you have something like Cabalist’s Tome or other powerful spells before putting something on the board. Keep in mind that you can’t play a spell if you don’t have enough health, regardless of if you have Violet Illusionist or Animated Armor on the board!

You could add Archmage Antonidas to this deck which would lead to infinite damage with Violet Illusionist. The reason I didn’t do that is because most games aren’t going to last that long, and it would be difficult to get them both on the board at the same time.

    Archmage plus Illusionist is infinite damage.

      Turn 5 doesn’t exist in this brawl. You’ll never, ever, ever get to play Antonidas.

        Im running a stall/heal priest with the usually stuff with a few things rearranged for the tavern brawl and I can consistently get out Velen which basically makes it game right there with holy fires holy novas and if you have auchenai you can flash heal for 10 damage it’s got a 90%+ win rate right now and I’ve played 30 or so games with it
