[Hearthstone] Defeating Highlord Omokk

The first boss of the next week is Omokk. In all my time in WoW, Lower Blackrock Spire is the one dungeon I really never ran. By the time I got to 60, people were skipping straight to Upper Blackrock Spire as a good percentage of the player base already had the key to UBRS.

Omokk's hero power is an Execute he can't control since it hits a random damaged minion, but if you've only got one damaged minion, yeah, that guy is toast. Blackrock Mountain feels like it has many random powers and minions like this.

First off, this guy totally cheats. I tried a deck with Arcane Nullifers, Faire Dragons and Spectral Knights. All of those state that they can't be hit by Hero Powers or spells. Well, with Omokk, they can. His Hero power can hit them. He can hit stealth minions, too, while they are still stealthed. Sign this guy up for his Patriots's jersey.

Nearly all his minions have a "50% chance to attack the wrong minion" and even his Time for Smash spell hits a random enemy. He even wants to share the fun because he can play Mogor the Ogre which makes all minons have a chance to attack a target other than the one they were targeting. Basically, he has no idea who he is attacking or who his minions are attacking.

This was the first boss I had some difficulty with so I perused the internet to see what advice their might be out there. I found a suggestion to use an aggro Paladin deck. In an early scene in the classic movie "Top Gun", the two main characters Maverick and Goose enter a bar. Maverick says, "This is what I call a target-rich environment."

Aside: It feels weird to know some in my audience have never seen Top Gun. I'm so sorry your parents negelected your proper cinematic education growing. I weep for our youth.

The Aggro Paladin deck creates what I call a Target Rich Environment. Truesilver Champion was nice because many of his mininos (Ogre Brutes, Ogre Magi) are 4 HP creatures.
