Hearthstone Zinaar

12 posts in this topic

Just beat Heroic Zinaar with this deck on the first try. 3 modifications:

-2x Saboteurs for 2x Sorcerer's Apprentice

-1x Archmage Anton for 1x Loatheb

-1x Cone of Cold for 1x flamecannon

 

The Saboteurs were awesome plays on rounds 3 and 4 to get tempo as Zinaar used all his mana to hero power. Cone of Cold froze his board for another tempo turn, and gave me time to draw into the flamewaker.

 

I had some rng in that the wishes I played gave me a 3rd Saboteur and 2 more cones of cold, which let me drop Antonidas for the finish.

 

Thanks for the deck.

I played with both the Mech deck and the Tempo deck. I had great success with the Tempo deck after a few tries. RNG was not friendly until the third round. As for the Mech Deck, either RNG was not my friend or I just could not get a hand on the proper card usage. Either way, Tempo was extremely helpful in putting Heroic Zinaar back into his lamp. :)

The Cheap heroic deck is not good enough , he keeps flooding the map with  minions and    removes my minions easy with removals spells...!

Face Hunter vs Heroic Zinaar

 

CakYrMb.png

 

I dove right in with a Face Hunter deck and beat him on my 2nd attempt without even reading any of this. Zinaar does seem a bit easier than previous heroic bosses. A cheap aggro hunter handled him easily. (That Foe Reaper in hand was one of the minions I chose from a wish, not part of my deck.) As you can see in the screenshot, I had multiple ways to deal lethal at the end. I couldn't focus face the whole time though. I had to take out some minions along the way. I used a couple weak minions to kill the Pit Snakes, so that they couldn't destroy my more valuable minions. Zinaar played two Stormwind Champions back to back. I laid down a taunt, but otherwise ignored them for a turn. The next turn, he played Fireguard Destroyer and Fire Elemental. That gave him a whopping 31 possible damage on his next attack. I had an Explosive Trap in place, and along with Leokk, Unleash the Hounds, and a couple other minions on the board, I was able to clear his. That was the only other instance in which I had to play D. Other than that, just race for face.

This is the F2P deck I defeated Heroic Zinaar with.

Zinaar's Hero Power gives him a mana crystal and a card every turn; in exchange, he gives you a Wish card. Those 0 mana spells allow you to either Discover a spell, a minion, or a 4-mana minion. Therefore no card draw or other Discover effects are needed in this match as they would only overstuff your hand.
Just try to stall with removal and taunts to eventually get lucky with some game changing Wish cards.

F2P Mage (0 Dust)

2x Arcane Missiles
2x Goldshire Footman
2x Mirror Image
2x Arcane Explosion
2x Frostbolt
2x Frostwolf Grunt
2x Kobold Geomancer
2x Forgotten Torch
2x Frost Nova
2x Ironfur Grizzly
2x Animated Armor
2x Fireball
2x Polymorph
2x Summoning Stone
2x Flamestrike

Mulligan for Animated Armor, then Goldshire Footman, Kobold Geomancer, Frostbolt and Forgotten Torch.
Remove Dunemaul Shaman as soon as possible to protect your Animated Armor.
Zinaar's minions will mostly ignore Animated Armor, but he will use Roaring Torch against it.
Difficulty: Easy (may take up to 5 tries).

Deck changes for Normal Mode: 2x Sen'jin Shieldmasta and 2x Water Elemental instead of 2x Animated Armor and 2x Summoning Stone.

      So the latest expansion, Mean Streets of Gadgetzan, has been out for more than a month now, and I was curious what everyone´s opinion on it was. Personally, I love the set. It adds more synergy with types of cards that weren´t as popular beforehand. For example, sets like secret mage, demon warlock, taunt warrior, and beast druid/hunter, have all gotten big buffs and can be viable in the meta. I got rank 13 with secret mage and taunt warrior alone, and hope to get to legend with them. What about you?

      The live Q&A with the two well-known Hearthstone devs took place yesterday and we've made a recap of the most interesting points.
      First of all, if you want to watch the whole thing, the VOD can be found here (it starts at 14:10). If you prefer a shorter version, Redditor EpicMelon has made a 10-min video of everything important said. Ultimately, if you don't feel like watching videos, we've made a summary of anything worth noting from yesterday's Q&A.
      Ben started talking about the new player experience, a topic he has discussed again this week. He repeated that most new players start off by playing versus A.I., some go to Casual and a minority goes to Ranked. The team has made it so that in Casual new players are exclusively matched against other new players and their MMR is kept to a 50% winrate.
      One of the currently most discussed hot topics in the Hearthstone community is the Ranked ladder. The team is satisfied with how clear the current system is in how it works. However, they do realise that its grindiness and the monthly reset can be a disadvantage and feel repetitive. To counter that, they are looking into short-term increasing the amount of bonus stars players can gain. This will hopefully increase the number of players in medium and higher ranks and move veterans away from Rank 20. However, they don't want everyone to be a Legend player either, since this would devalue the ranking. New breakpoints are also an idea the Hearthstone team is considering. As far as winstreaks stopping at Rank 5 are concerned, the idea behind this is that they wanted players to get to Legend "legit"; this could change as well, though.
      Moving to the topic of Arena, Dean announced that they are thinking of moving it to Standard format. Moreover, they want to try decreasing the amount of commons you get, as well as the amount of neutral Classic and Basic cards (especially minions). Some of these changes for Arena are already ready to be added to the game they are just waiting for the right time to patch them in. In early February, top 100 rankings for Arena will be published - just like the Ranked season ones. These rankings will be calculated based on highest average wins per run basis with a minimum requirement of 30 runs.
      The guys had a few things to say about the current meta, too. Pirate Warrior represented 30% of the meta game near the launch of Mean Streets of Gadgetzan, while there were also a lot of Pirate Shamans and Rogues. Thankfully, these numbers have dropped as other decks (like Jade Druid and Reno decks) started surfacing. Pirate decks are slightly more popular than Team 5 would like and decks with the pirate package feel same-y. If this persists, they might take a look at Pirates. Hunters and Paladins are having a hard time at the moment because they can't keep up with the aggro pirate decks. Overall, the internal meta report shows a stability in the meta: there is only a 3% difference between the winrates of the top deck and the 11th best deck.
      Lastly, there was mention of the Wild format. Ben admitted that they could do some things better for Wild. For example, it's possible that Blizzard will encourage more Wild tournaments in the future. The upcoming rotation will be interesting since Wild will have more card sets than Standard. Wild is far from dead: it's just half as popular as Standard, although Ben hasn't looked in the numbers recently. Earlier in the stream, Ben also said that the team is considering two options to keep Standard fresh: either nerfing cards or just move them to Wild.
      Lastly, Ben and Dean talked about various other small topics like the possibility of reprinting cards (no actual answer given), more Hunter and Paladin talk, wording inconsistencies and rewriting old cards, how a healthy meta is defined and Team 5 itself.
