Hearthstone Sun Raider Phaerix

It's not true for me that he focusses the hero, I did as in the guide but he focuses my minions if they are a thread for him...

Great deck... was able to beat it in one try with only 6 cards substituted.  Nice work.

Four rounds and I was victorious! I did have to substitute for Auchenai Soulpriest, Crazed Alchemist, and Injured Blademaster, but I didn't have any problems even allowing the system to auto substitute the remaining cards. The first few rounds were filled with bad RNG as far as silences went, but once I was able to quickly get rid of the rod and silence it on my side, Phaerix needed to change his name to Failrix.

 

I changed to the Priest build after I was unsuccessful with the Mage deck.

Easy win in round 6 vs Heroic Phaerix with this deck.

 

Drew Shadow Word:Pain in opening hand, then drew into inner fire & divine spirit combos over the next 6 turns. Finished with a 20/20 sunrod to Failrix's face.

I was missing a couple of cards ( a second LotN & a Holy Champ) and substituted with Youthful Brewmasters. Stuffed the rod up my shirt and done.

I beat him on Heroic with my control shaman. It took two attempts.

It's a very straightforward fight, as long as you eliminate the rod threat during the first couple of turns. A T1 Earth Shock did the trick for me. After that, I just maintained board control until I had enough to take him down. Hex was very useful as well. It neutralized the Hoplites or other big enemies, and it's a possible backup for the Earth Shock on T3 if you were unfortunate to have no answer for the rod during T1 or T2. Acidic Swamp Ooze is also useful, since the boss uses multiple weapons. I imagine you could easily defeat this boss with any class as long as you have silences or transforms and possibly weapon destruction. I even came close to beating him with a goofy face hunter deck that I had been playing around with. This boss fight offers a little more freedom than past bosses. Have fun with it. :)

I defeated Heroic Sun Raider Phaerix with these F2P decks.

Heroic Phaerix starts with a 3/8 Rod of the Sun, which makes him immune to any damage while he is controlling it. You have to get rid of the Rod to damage him, but it will be resummoned for the opponent each time it is killed.
Silencing or transforming the Rod will stop this circle and make the fight much easier.
Phaerix's deck includes a lot burn and removal: Fiery Waraxe, Tol'vir Hoplite, Fireball, Arcanite Reaper and Holy Fire, which can end the fight very quickly.
Phaerix will mostly attack your face and ignore your minions, but do not overextend until after the first Flamestrike.
Because of the high pressure Phaerix will put on you, while you still have to figure out how to deal with the Rod, it is highly recommended to use a Reno Jackson deck list.
