    Apparently the Control Warrior deck from February’s Twist season worked just fine.
    Just replace the Dragonslayers and the Big Ol’ Whelps

    I didn’t play it, but Silverhand Pally is a solid aggro choice.

    This time around will be interesting…
    Like many other players who missed what was going on at the time, when Core Set became a thing I scratched my head as to why I suddenly had two of everything and ended up dusting all my collected copies.
    The recent rotation moved a ton of staples that had been around from the beginning (and most of the original DK cards) over to Legendary.
    I run two accounts, one competitive, the other just for Tavern Brawl & Twist. Go figure, the latter is presently dustless. I guess I’ll try some Core Decks and see what I can swap in to make them work.

      Oh right… That’s why I’ve got no dust. I was replacing my common and rare DK cards.

      Here is the starter, runeless, shell I’m building with. Swap in whichever rune cards you prefer.

      Corpse Bride, I’ve always felt was hot poop, probably the first card to go (might be a good slot to play with Arthas’ Gift, if I want to be whacky and stay runeless).

      Any time Epics/Legendaries are out, Bonemare tends to become a MVP in the late game.

        The answer was, that Corpse Bride was fine since there is no corpse sink in that deck other than Malignant Horror, and Asphixiate should have been in there.

        Frost is tough without Frostwyrm’s Fury, but this seems like an okay control deck.

        Frost worked great against the Face Hunter I tested against; conceded when he realized I had nothing but answers for his board.

        This is where I admit my choices for Unholy might not be the best since I usually run it as a 40 card, so decisions had to be made. Power loss due to Grave Strength not being available is why the Necrotic Mortician is in, as an extra Nerubian Visier, to maybe cheat a GS in.

        My opponent in the Unholy test was running a hybrid of all three runes.
        I’m not sure what else they had, but if I had them on this account I might have included Amateur Pupperteer or Down with the Ship.

        For Blood, I’m thinking corpse generation into Corpse Explosion to clear the way to begin beating face with Corrupted Ashbringer and Gnome Muncher. (Pretty much how the original pre-con Blood deck worked.) I’m sure there’s an aggro version that could be built here too, but I’ve never been a fan of Blood.

    Won my first game with an Inner Fire Priest. The deck is 85% the same as the version currently played in Wild. Consistency may be lower but you can blow people out if they’re unprepared.

    I made the full Buff Paladin and Freeze Shaman (plus token DH) but I am struggling at platinum. I guess these decks are not easy to pilot.

      I would appreciate this mode becoming permanent, however they do it, especially if it had its own casual and ladder. Even if the best cards for your deck end up being wild, budget!… 1 golden legendary could be most of a deck…

    I literally won on turn 5 with face hunter and an 18/5 scavenging hyena

      Worked well for me too.

      Here’s my Deck.

    I like the idea of using only budget cards a lot, although I dont appreciate the usage of wild cards since i dont have them. Won a pack with token druid pretty easily, combo priest should work fine too.

    Secret Mage is the best. 27 of the 30 cards can be played. You are only really missing Aluneth.
