What is a Deck Battle?

Once a month, a guest host brings their favorite deck onto the show to battle the current reigning champion deck for control of the Happy Hearthstone Deck Battle Throne!

If the challenger wins the best-of-3 series, their deck becomes the new Reigning Champion Deck and will fight off future challengers until it loses, or until it’s earned its place in the Happy Hearthstone Hall of Fame!

The Deck

  • The Mohammad Ali Shaman: Keep the board clear early and mid-game and punch hard later.
  • How it wins: Uses early low casting cost spells to remove early threats while setting up totems and creatures for late game. It’s a slow painful death.

Full Deck List

You can get more insight into the deck by reading Adam’s guide, which goes through every single card with full explanation and advice, but here’s the simple deck list with no commentary (ordered by mana cost), if you’d rather just try it out yourself.




In case you don’t have some of the ideal cards, here are some quality back ups and alterations you can make that keep with the same theme and strengths of the deck.

The Defending Champion Deck

Dan’s Hunter Beastmaster Deck, which relies on lots of Beast minions and solid removal spells to rush the opponent down.

The Beastmaster Deck has reigned supreme for 3 months, and has beaten 2 other decks before this episode.
