[edit] Strategy

Because Ragnaros deals 8 damage when your turn ends, he can easily work as removal, while remaining a persistent threat. Due to how he attacks, Ragnaros will not take damage, and can be used to destroy powerful minions without losing him, although the targets of his attacks are random. Silencing Ragnaros allows him to attack normally. Keeping Ragnaros alive is essential to success if you have him out.

[edit] Lore

From Wowpedia:

Ragnaros The Firelord and his brethren once held sway over the entire world. As a servant of the Old Gods, he fought against the Titans for domination over the planet. The victorious Titans banished him and his brethren to the Elemental Plane — there to remain imprisoned until the end of time. It was then and there that the brothers turned on each other. For five millennia a battle was fought at the core of this world. It was during the Elemental Sundering that Ragnaros attacked Thunderaan, Prince of Air. Thunderaan was utterly defeated and the Firelord feasted upon his essence, but was unable to consume him entirely. Ragnaros divided what remained between his servants, Baron Geddon and Garr.

In the center of a vast lake of fire in the Elemental Plane stands Sulfuron Keep, the home of Ragnaros. Until comparatively recently, he ruled his underground land with a molten iron fist.
