Hearthstone Vaelastrasz the Corrupt

Recommended Posts

Mage v. Vael

2 Arcane Missiles

2 Ice Lances

2 Mirror Images

2 Cogmasters -> 2 Leper Gnomes

2 Mana Wyrms

2 Zombie Chows

2 Frostbolts

2 Knife Jugglers

2 Kobold Geomancers

2 Sorcerer's Apprentices

2 Unstable Ghouls

2 Frost Novas

2 Goblin Sappers

2 Fireballs

2 Molten Giants

 

Use Mirror Images to soften the blow and buy time.  Save Frost Novas, Sorcerers, and dmg spells for when you're about to die (~10 life).  This way you can play the giants  cheaply.  Attack Vael directly.

 

This deck was originally mech mage and I slowly altered it to this state.  I beat Vael with a 1/2 Cogmaster who ate imps.  The Leper Gnomes would probably work better.  I don't have Clockwork Giants but they're probably very effective.

This is the cheapest deck I beat Heroic Vaelastrasz with.

Vaelastrasz will constantly fill your hand with cards: Every turn you will draw at least 4 cards. Thus you will quickly have burned through your entire deck. That is why your cards should be as cheap as possible.
Because cheap cards are often weak, you have to use any synergy you can: buffs and even Murlocs.
Vaelastrasz himself has a strong deck to make use of his Hero Power: Twilight Drakes, Goblin Sappers and Clockwork Giants are his biggest threats and with Gang Up he is able to refill his deck with potentially very dangerous minions. Your own minions will never be able to compete with them. You simply have to empty your hand and do as much damage to Vaelastrasz as fast as you can as well as hope for weak Gang Ups (on one of your own minions preferably).
Vaelastrasz will use removal on your Taunts and buffing minions. So only play them, if you can gain immediate and substantial benefits from them.

F2P Druid (0 Dust)
Difficulty: easy (may take up to 5 tries)
Inspiration: https://www.icy-veins.com/hearthstone/cheap-vaelastrasz-the-corrupt-druid-deck-heroic-mode

2x Innervate
2x Moonfire
2x Claw
2x Elven Archer
2x Goldshire Footman
2x Grimscale Oracle
2x Murloc Raider
2x Stonetusk Boar
2x Voodoo Doctor
2x Bluegill Warrior
2x Frostwolf Grunt
2x Mark of the Wild
2x Murloc Tidehunter
2x Raid Leader
2x Savage Roar

Use your 0-mana spells Innervate and Moonfire deliberately to empty your hand.
Grimscale Oracle and Raid Leader are priority targets for the AI. Try to make good use of their effects the very same turn you are dropping them.
Only play Goldshire Footman and Frostwolf Grunt to protect Grimscale Oracle and Raid Leader.
Savage Roar is your finisher. It deals 10 damage with 4 minions, 12 with 5 etc.
 

Cheerio,

Bob

You're welcome! smile.png

 

 

Honestly, I don't know how I would have gotten through 90% of the solo adventures without your deck tips. It's definitely helped me to get a feel of what I should include in decks I build on my own!

      Here's a classic WoW history moment that's arriving in Hearthstone, as the United in Stormwind expansion is bringing with it a very familiar weapon, as well as the probably most famous mob type of all time connected directly with it!
      Many players got their start in WoW after watching the South Park "Make Love, Not Warcraft" episode, in which the kids are unable to play the game due to an extremely powerful player and have to grind low-level boars to get to max level - at the end of which Blizzard bring in the Sword of a Thousand Truths to slay that player. And now both the boars and the sword are arriving in Hearthstone, and are connected!

      Source: Chrononi.
      While the above is probably not viable as a competitive deck, it'll definitely get at least a couple of fun ones, and will almost certainly feature in a looot of highlight clips! It's a very well done reference to the episode as well, as the cards interact exactly the way the story progresses (well, it was a bit more than 7 boars but still). You can check out the episode here if you haven't seen it in a while (or ever) as it's definitely worth a rewatch!

      United in Stormwind is Hearthstone's latest expansion. It contains 135 cards and is now available for pre-purchase.
      (Source)
       
       
         
      ANNOUNCING
      United In Stormwind
      HEARTHSTONE’S NEWEST EXPANSION
      Welcome, adventurer, to Stormwind! This majestic capital city is a testament to all the Alliance stands for. Filled with bustling trade, shiny equipment, epic mounts, and new Questlines, Stormwind is a great place to rest and prepare for the next step in your journey. And prepare you must, as there is hidden danger lurking deep within the castle’s pristine walls. The city cannot and will not fall! Band together with old allies and new friends. Resolute and unyielding we are… United in Stormwind!

      United in Stormwind will launch worldwide on August 3 with 135 new collectible cards! You can find the full schedule for card reveals, and see which cards were announced today, by visiting the card library, here. Check back frequently—the list will be updated with new cards as they’re revealed!
      New Keyword: Tradeable
      Shopkeepers, bakers, and merchants come to Stormwind to peddle their wares while adventurers come to trade away their extra loot. Cards with the new Tradeable keyword can be played like normal, or for the low cost of 1 Mana, swapped with a different card in your deck!
       
      Questlines
      An adventure is only as good as the quests you take along the way. All 10 classes will have access to a Questline that highlights the journey of their class’s Mercenary through Stormwind. Questlines are Legendary spells that start in your hand and have three tiers of progression. Get a reward after you complete each step of the Questline, culminating in a powerful Legendary mercenary minion!
       
       
      Mounts and Profession Tools
      You’ve grown a lot in the Barrens, and it’s time to level up! Pick up a mount to aid you in battle—and even keep fighting after you’re gone! Or maybe you can learn a new skill while you’re in town. Profession tools are weapons that have special effects instead of attack values. Gather the crafting reagents to get an awesome effect!
      Phase 2 Roadmap Update
      United in Stormwind will kick off Phase 2 of the year of the Gryphon. Phase 2 will include major changes to Battlegrounds, including the launch of Battlegrounds cosmetics, a minion type refresh, and regular content updates. We will also continue to bring regular updates to Duels, Tavern Brawls, and Solo Experiences. Finally, Mercenaries will launch during Phase 2 of the Year of the Gyphon! Take a look at the new Roadmap:
