Hearthstone: Mecha'thun Guide - Deck lists for every hero

Welcome to the meme factory.

About John Bedford

John is Metabomb's Editor in Chief, and is responsible for all of the Hearthstone news, features and guides content on the site.

Our Mecha'thun guide contains deck lists for the Druid, Hunter, Mage, Paladin, Priest, Rogue, Shaman, Warlock and Warrior heroes in Hearthstone.

We love a good meme card as much as the next Hearthstone player, and the upcoming neutral Legendary card Mecha'thun promises to deliver on that front more than adequately.

Expect some outlandish deck experiments when this goes live, some very satisfying streamer clips, but perhaps not so much of an appearance in the competitive Hearthstone scene.

If you're unfamiliar with this mechanical monster, here's a quick overview of how Mecha'thun actually functions:

  • Mecha'thun is a 10 Mana 10 / 10 stat minion with a Deathrattle that destroys the opponent if certain conditions are met.
  • Those conditions require that you have at the time of Mecha'thun's death zero cards left on the battlefield, in your hand, or in your deck pile.
  • That Deathrattle effect can be silenced by your opponent, potentially leaving you feeling very sorry for yourself indeed...

We're rounding up a collection of theorycrafted Mecha'thun deck lists for all classes, but it goes without saying that these will be in need of further tweaking once the meta is in full swing.

We will also caution that our usual advice about holding back on crafting expensive cards goes double in this instance. This one's strictly for fun at this stage.

With that out of the way, let's move onto the actual deck lists. We'll be updating this and slotting new suggestions in as new strategies emerge. We've also got a couple of more in-depth deck guides if you fancy getting stuck in with a little more insight behind you.

UPDATE - 8TH AUGUST 2018

We've just updated this article with a Warrior deck list, but we're still struggling to find a solid Paladin version. If you know of one, please let us know about it in the comments so we can investigate!

Mecha'thun Druid Deck List

This is JoeyJojo48's version of Mecha'thun Druid. You approach your win-condition by using Hemet, Jungle Hunter to obliterate your deck, before playing Mecha'thun with nothing but Flobbidinous Floop and Starfall left in your hand.

Once your active Mecha'thun is gone, you simply drop Flobbidinous Floop onto the board and Starfall it. Simply...

Mecha'thun Hunter Deck List

The idea with this deck is that you reduce the cost of Mecha'thun with Galvanizer, and then hit your target with Goblin Prank once you have an empty hand and board - aided by Hemet, Jungle Hunter. It was created by Shateiel.

HunterNeutral
1 x Candleshot2 x Galvanizer

Mecha'thun Mage Deck List

This is MisterFr0sty's take on Mecha'thun Mage. It takes the Tempo Mage format and applies Stargazer Luna, Luna's Pocket Galaxy, Mecha'thun and Voodoo Doll to make the win-condition.

Lunar's Pocket Galazy helps you play lots of cards for cheap, although there's a risk that Mecha'thun doesn't get the cost reduction benefit. The idea though is that you play it, apply Voodoo Doll and then use your Hero Power to ping the Doll.

MageNeutral

2 x Mana Wyrm1 x Voodoo Doll
2 x Arcanologist2 x Lifedrinker

Mecha'thun Paladin Deck List

We're just in the process of tracking down a viable Mecha'thun Paladin list. If you think you've found one, let us know about it in the comments.

Mecha'thun Priest Deck List

In this version of Mecha'thun Priest - created by StrifeCro - you use Hemet to thin down your deck, then execute the combo in the following order: Reckless Experimenter, Coffin Crasher, Ticking Abomination (x2) with only Mecha'thun remaining in your hand.

Mecha'thun Rogue Deck List

TheCrabKing's take on Mecha'thun Rogue builds on the Miracle Rogue concept for its final win-condition. You need Mecha'thun, Myra's Unstable Element, Backstab, Voodoo Doll and two Shadowstep cards in your hand.

First you wipe out your deck using Myra's Unstable Element, then you clear your hand of all but the most important spells and cards listed above.

Next, drop Mecha'thun on the board and then use Shadowstep on him. Do the same with Voodoo Doll.

In the final stage, you now play your cheaper Mecha'thun and target it with Voodoo Doll. Kill the Doll with Backstab and you win the game.

RogueNeutral

2 x Preparation1 x Bloodmage Thalnos

Mecha'thun Shaman Deck List

It's a little bit harder to get rid of your deck with the Shaman, but player WillPwn reckons they've cracked it.

For the Shaman version of the deck, you use Murmuring Elemental so that Galvanizer reduces the cost of the Mecha'thun in your hand by two. If you can get two Murmuring Elementals off, you can actually reduce the cost to six Mana.

When you play Mecha'thun, you pummel it using cards like Crushing Hand and Zap!

As far as thinning your deck goes, it is as we say a little harder for the Shaman to achieve. WillPwn points to cards like Hemet, Jungle Hunter and Acolyte of Pain in combination with Volcano. You can also use the power of Electra Stormsurge to double up on Far Sight and Elementary Reaction.

Our Mecha'thun Shaman deck list guide has more detail on how to actually play this deck!

ShamanNeutral

1 x Earth Shock2 x Galvanizer

Mecha'thun Warlock Deck List

Player YourPrivateNightmare has put together an Even Warlock that makes space for some Mecha'thun shenanigans. It may well prove to be one of the most consistent decks of this kind that we see.

The Warlock's lower cost Hero Power makes thinning the deck out a good deal easier, and all you really have to do is reduce the cost of Mecha'thun by playing a pair of Galvanizer minions.

Once you've done so, you'll have the Mana spare to play Mecha'thun, then Bloodbloom, then Cataclysm. Woosh - your empty hand and board join your empty deck, your mech is destroyed and the game is yours.

WarlockNeutral
1 x Bloodbloom1 x Bloodmage Thalnos
2 x Curse of Weakness2 x Doomsayer
2 x Defile2 x Galvanizer
2 x Vulgar Homunculus2 x Plated Beetle
1 x Cataclysm1 x Keening Banshee
2 x Hellfire2 x Shroom Brewer
2 x Hooked Reaver1 x Genn Greymane
2 x Lesser Amethyst Spellstone1 x Mecha'thun
2 x Siphon Soul

Mecha'thun Warrior Deck List

This deck was created by Monsanto. The general idea here is that you amass at least ten Armor, then use The Boomship to summon Mecha'thun before wiping it out with Shield Slam.

WarriorNeutral

2 x Eternium Rover2 x Wild Pyromancer

    @TNTOutburst Also mage's might be easier with 2 galvanizers,2 youthful brewmasters then playing mecha'thun, frost bolt, snap feeeze

    I do not have deck lists for them but
    i do have the combos.

    For warrior you would play 2 galvanizers then either 1 zola the gorgon or 1 youthful brewmaster to bounce back a galvanizer. You would then play mecha'thun, bring it on and shield slam the mecha'thun.

    And for Paladin you could play even paladin and play 2 galvanizers and 2 youthful brewmasters. Then play mecha'thun, pyromancer, equality
