The decks you need to win Hearthstone’s Nozdormu at the End of Time Tavern Brawl

Do not confine yourself into linear thinking… in Hearthstone’s Nozdormu at the End of Time Tavern Brawl, not that you’ll have much time to think at all. In time, all things are possible… and by time, I mean the 12 seconds your turn lasts. All that matters, is this moment… and the opponent’s face which you shall smash without mercy.

Tavern Brawl basics

  • Name: Nozdormu at the End of Time Tavern Brawl
  • Description: Magic from the Bronze Dragonflight has massively spend up time. You have 12 seconds to take your turn. Don’t Panic!
  • Fun level: 1/10
  • Difficulty: 5-9/10 (depending on the size of your card collection)
  • Replayability: 3/10
  • Format: Wild
  • Type: PVP
  • Deck: Constructed
  • Rewards: 1 Standard Pack (can contain any card from the current Standard rotation)

Time is a tangled web.

This Brawl is similar to others where a single card’s ability becomes the rule set for the Brawl.  We’ve seen this with Brawls like the Three Wishes Tavern Brawl based on Zephrys the Great, the Miniature Warfare Tavern Brawl using the effect of  Jepetto Joybuzz, and Aviana’s Night which takes its rule set from Duskfallen Aviana.

This Brawl uses the effect of Nozdormu and/or Nozdormu the Eternal. Blizzard has been trying to encourage players to put Nozdormu the Eternal into their decks, even to the point of creating a Quest that is given to all players with an active Quest slot on the 15th of every month called “Nozdormu Day.” Players have been, shall we say, reluctant, but as a bonus, playing a game in this Brawl will advance the “Nozdormu Day” Quest if you still have it.

With this Brawl, Blizzard is giving everyone a taste of what a Nozdormu match feels like — like it or not. Some will think it’s the greatest Hearthstone mode ever created. Some will not find it enjoyable at all. You may want to evaluate the “Fun Level” score I gave the Brawl to see where I fall on that spectrum.

Because this is a Constructed Brawl using all the Wild rule set, the size of your card collection will make a huge difference in the decks you can build — and how difficult it might be to get a win. Players with smaller collections could find the it difficult to get wins this week. On the other hand, the ruleset lends itself well to fast, aggressive decks which are typically less expensive.

How to win Nozdormu at the End of Time Hearthstone Tavern Brawl

On the surface, this isn’t all that different from the Ladder, and you’ll see Wild “meta” decks in our list. You just have less time to make your moves. Decks that need to play a lot of cards in one turn or have long animations like Shudderwok Shaman won’t do well here. The other change from the Ladder is that the game considers you to have Nozdormu the Eternal in your deck. This will ruin decks that rely on no minions, or decks that need only class cards like Pure Paladin.

As with almost every Constructed Brawl, there are two components to winning: your deck and your piloting. Piloting refers to making the right turn-to-turn decisions, which is essential to winning even if you’re using the best deck available. The deck you’ll either make or copy one from a site like ours prior to the game. In Constructed Brawls, players discover the most powerful lists very quickly. This leads to the Brawl falling into a meta structure like we see on the Ladder.

If you’re struggling to win, I’ve got decks that you can try.

The decks you need to win Nozdormu at the End of Time Hearthstone Tavern Brawl

Winning decks for 2024

Ignite Mage

  • Deck code:
  • Creator: w1004w
  • This deck is all about building up to a huge Ignite. Sorcerer’s Apprentice lets you cast them cheaper and Ice Block helps you stay alive long enough to execute your plan. You’ve got a ton of card draw to keep those Ignites rolling.

Handbuff Paladin

  • Deck code:
  • Creator: Ultrasonicc
  • Use cards like Muscle-o-Tron and Grimestreet Outfitter to buff up cards in your hand. Zilliax Deluxe 3000 and Leeroy Jenkins make great targets. The deck also has a small Excavate package for card generation.

Aggro Priest

  • Deck code:
  • Creator: Ben Hearthstone
  • I don’t think I’ll ever get used to typing the words Aggro and Priest together. It just feels wrong. This deck features lots of cheap minions and powerful spells like Mind Blast. Face is the place!

No Discover Mech Rogue

  • Deck code:
  • Creator: tultommy
  • This deck features a ton of low cost Mech units. It leaves out the Discover cards Rogue is known for. You don’t have time for Discover in this format. Zilliax Deluxe 3000 with a Poison module can take down big threats.

Even Shaman

  • Deck code:
  • Creator: tresser
  • This deck has been a resilient powerhouse of the Wild format. It uses the 1-mana Hero Power to spam Totems onto the board, plus plays several dedicated Totem cards. Totemic Surge and Totemic Might alone can turn a board full of Totems into a frightening army. On top of that, you can slam down Totem synergy cards like Thing from Below and Gigatotem.

Taunt Warrior

  • Deck code:
  • Creator: BestDecksForYou
  • Now this is my kind of deck. Loads and Taunts and sweet, sweet armor generation. I don’t have the cards to try out this deck, but I so want to. It has a couple of Discover cards so you’ve got to choose fast. It might not work in the ultra fast environment of this Brawl, but it would be so much fun if it did.

Old (but still good) Nozdormu Brawl decks

Beast Hunter

Deck code:


This is an aggressive deck that plays into the classic Beast synergy with Hunter. Starving Buzzard, Harpoon Gun, Scavenging Hyena and Tundra Rhino are the stars of this zoo. Festival of Legends added Stranglethorn Heart and Instrument Tech.

Ben’s Mech Paladin

Deck code:


This is a simple swarm deck. It takes advantage of the updated (buffed) Magnetic mechanic. You no longer need an open board space to Magnetize onto an existing mech.

Aggro Shadow Priest

Deck code:


I still can’t wrap my mind around aggro and Priest, but Darkbishop Benedictus, a whole bunch of Shadow based spells, and a Pirate package make it work. Like the Pirate Rogue below, Ship’s Cannon is a key minion.

Pirate Rogue

Deck code:


This is another ARRRRRgressive deck. This deck doesn’t require any Festival of Legends cards, but really needs Swordfish and Pufferfist from Voyage to the Sunken City set. Ship’s Cannon pours on the damage from all the various Pirate minions.

Even Shaman

Deck code:


This deck looks to quickly fill the board with Totems from the reduced cost Hero Power from Genn Greymane. Then you add in all kinds of Totem buffs (Totemic Surge and Splitting Axe) and activators (Thing from Below). Devolve can take care of the some of the stickiest boards and you also have access to Crackle, and Frostbite.

“At last it has come to pass. The moment of my demise. The loop is closed. My future self will cause no more harm.
Still, in the future, I will… fall to madness. And you, heroes… will vanquish me. The cycle will repeat. So it goes.
What matters is that Azeroth did not fall; that humanity survived to live another day.
All that matters… is this moment.”

One of these decks should see you through. If none of these decks work for you, check for more community decks on Hearthstone Top Decks. New Brawl decks keep being added all the time. If you find another great deck, share it with us in the comments.
