If you do:
Unborn Val'kyr
Curse of Doom
Shadow Clash
Haunt - > (this ability has to not miss meaning your Unborn Val'kyr needs to not die right before it)
Ikky:
Black Claw
Flock

Any lvl 1 pet:

Almost didn't work. Ikky got wrecked instantly before he could even get to flock. Thankfully my third pet was an Alarm-o-Bot. Used Haywire and Alert! to finish the fight.

Turn 1 Curse of Doom, Turn 2 Shadow Slash, Turn 3 Haunt.....Ikky comes in and follow the rest of the script. This works every time and the strat should be updated to reflect the addition of Shadow Slash on Turn2 :) Otherwise the strat is good.

I win every time with a Darkmoon Zepp 112 and Mechanical Pandaren Dragonling 122. Use Bombing run, Decoy and spam missle. When Zepp dies bring in Dragonline and use Thunderbolt, Decoy and spam Breath.

Managed it with a few alterations. Took Unholy Ascension instead of Haunt, then added a Shadow Slash between CoD and UA (as previously mentioned). Used Zandalari Kneebiter as third pet and finished the fight with Hunting Party.

This worked very well for me. TDScript below:

ability(218) [ self.round = 1 ]
ability(210) [ self.round = 2 ]
ability(321) [ self.round = 3 ]
change(#2) [ self(#1).dead ]
ability(919) [ ! enemy.aura(918).exists ]
ability(581)
change(#3) [ self(#2).dead ]
ability(921)

I did not have Ikky so I used Hollo's recommendation with a variation:
Unborn - Curse of Doom, Slash, then Haunt
Zandalari Anklerender - Black Claw, Hunting Party - Zandy dies
Gilnean Raven - Alpha Strike for the win
Hope this helps...

I used original strat above but added Alarm-o-Bot as third pet, opened with Decoy then finished with Haywire.

I wanted my Direbeak out so I could work on "Direbeak Team Up" and I wanted flying pets. My direbeak went out first, and I used ironskin. I swapped for my Gilnean Raven and used darkflame then nevermore. After the raven died I brought in Ikky, used black claw and flock and Ruinhoof died on my first try.

Yeah my Ikky could only get a Black Claw out, I used a Direbeak Hatchling as my 3rd and used Falcosaur Swarm! once and won.

Cast a Shadow Slash before Haunt and Ikky won't die after Black Claw.

Agreed that this strat is at best risky. Hoof will hit Ikky for 494-696. Chew will hit Ikky for 691. That adds up to 1135-1387 damage. Ikky has 1319HP, so may well die before starting Flock.

I haven't done the arithmetic, but I think that Hollo's recommendation to cast a Shadow Slash before Haunt is more accurate. Since the Valk Haunt happens before the Chew damage in that case, it should be safe.

Critter: I used three snails, all Ooze Touch, Acidic Goo and Dive. Just keep up Acidic Goo and Dive when he doesn't have the chew buff. Ooze when you don't need to refresh Acid or can't dive.
