I recently started playing trials even without any quests and so far I've had a lot of fun and success. :D So I decided to revive this neat little thread. ;)

Here are my last two trial decks. I got 10 wins with both and neither included any dominion.

Part 1 N/W Ka'ainu
Here's the deck list for those that don't speak german:

creatures (23)
1x Forcewielder
2x Frost Elemental
1x Lightning Elemental
1x Militant Automaton
1x Library Guards
1x Sunborn Subordinate
1x Spectral Aurite
1x Elf Scout
1x Silverfang
1x Electric Aurite
2x Gurko Tribe Shaman
1x Ambushing Sharpshooter
1x Venerated Unicorn
2x Brothers in Arms
1x Empress of the Forest
1x Elf Commander
1x Ancient Treant
1x Lifeforce Incarnate
1x Sunchaser Aurite
1x Melindra, Spirit Guide

spells (6)
2x Power Discharge
1x Flashfreeze
1x Ancient Wisdom
1x Forcefield
1x Tornado Outbrake

shrines (17)
8x Nature Shrine
8x Wisdom Shrine
1x Ancient Ruins

This list is pretty light on spells so not falling behind early was very important. Ka'ainu is an incredible hero for trials with pretty much any 3 cost creature because 4 HP creatures can be very hard to handle in general. The Frost Elementals did a surprising amount of work in combination with Flashfreeze and Power Discharge or just the Elf Scout and weren't half bad just as 2/4s when hero powered out.
Overall the games were all about patience and resource management. In most games I bided my time, not attacking altogether, if the trades I would've gotten wouldn't have been efficient enough. Instead I waited and played it safe until I got that one card (e.g. Outbrake or Power Discharge) that allowed me to swing the board in my favour.
The one Unicorn really saved my ass in a couple of games, removing key Enslaves or in the last game a Mantle of Winds from a triple shielded Spectral Aurite which allowed me to swing for leathal with my Sunchaser through a huge board of 7 or 8 creatures on both sides. :)
I didn't play Forcefield in all but 2 games. Most of the time the tempo loss is just to huge, but in those two games it rendered the enemy's goblins (in the first) or golem spam (in the second of those games) practically useless and pretty much singlehandedly won me those games.

Part 2: R/C basic Zash

Decklist:
creatures (21)
1x Silverfang
2x Moonlight Patrol
1x Brothers in Arms
1x Elf Commander
1x Storm Faerie
4x Goblin Warrior
1x Fia, Dragon Daughter
1x Goblin Fireworker
1x Gibo and Roni
2x Rakhi Berserker
1x Flamerune Warrior
1x Disciple of Zash
1x Flame Serpent
1x Ram'gakh
1x Mescatian Pheonix
1x Battlescarred Elder

spells (8)
1x Ambush Strike
1x The Test of Time
1x Mantle of Winds
3x Tornado Outbrake
1x Fireball
1x Dragonfire

shrines (16)
8x Nature Shrine
8x Rage Shrines

Now with 4 Goblin Warriors and 3 Outbrakes my gameplan was set from the start: go face and bounce or if that doesn't work smorc and return stuff to their hand. I did just that and tore through most of my games, winning after 5-7 turns. Luckily enough my opponents also got a slow start in games where I couldn't play anything before turn 3.
With 4 swift creatures (+ Fia, but she didn't do all that much) to close out games I completely disregarded trading and always went face using my hero power very often to just push a few points of extra damage. Any threats were bounced with Outbrake or Storm Faerie before they could do any damage to my board. In the few games that took a little longer Phoenix did some major work always threatening a few points more damage at 3 speed and blocking any smaller creatures.
The one thing I have to say about this list is that bounce really shits all over dominion. Coronis's ravens? Gone. Prin'ha? Denied. Implants, Helms and Enslaves? Just a huge tempo loss. It was a delight to play.
Now of the two games I lost the first one was mostly due to getting nothing until turn 3 and then not drawing a nature shrine for 2 more turns and just getting overwhelmed by my opponent. The second I lost because of a crucial missplay on my part when I got greedy and didn't sac off my full energy Phoenix to a Canonade, which would have freed it up to block the 3 damage my opponent gained for leathal with a surprise follow up Overcharger he top decked.

You can find the second part now on Youtube: https://youtu.be/OtBaP0tRbAM

Currently I am 8-2, both losses against Crueltek with a Order/Widsom deck :D
These colors are the most powerfull in Trials at the moment, IMO.
