Hearthstone - Blackrock Mountain - How to Beat Majordomo Executus / Ragnaros the Firelord

Is that title long enough?

So, anyway, after a bit of a false start with the second adventure (been playing too much WoW!) I had started working my way through it.

I was playing with an agro mage deck and won every match first time up until Raggy.

It was rather annoying, I was playing on auto pilot and not knowing what to expect when I finally managed to kill Majordomo I was then gutted to be wiped off the board when Raggy appeared.

I gave up at that point for a week or so and came back to it again and whatever I did I could not survive all those giants and then have enough to then get through another 18 health when Raggy spawned.

The last few days I've been playing ladder and my paladin deck has been doing a very good job so last night with 4/5 paladin wins on the quest I decided to at least have a try with him against Raggy.

Well, without even mulliganning I got equality which was a good start, all I needed was a consecrate and I'd be able to deal with the usual 7 board of giants on turn 6 that usually kill me.

The first thing I top decked was consecrate - Happy Days!!

A combo of  Undertakers, Knife Juggalos and lots of low cost deathrattle minions soon ensued leading up to the usual turn 6 (I think) Giant Fest.

Equality/Consecrate FTW!!!

Now what do I have in my hand? Leroy - How very apt. I already have a Knife Juggalo and a 6 attack Undertaker on the board and when I deploy Leroy and then Argent Protector him at least one of his whelps gets knifed.

Raggy is then put down to 4 HP and next turn is dead. On the first attempt - oh yeah baby!!!
