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!

      Update 17.0 came with a few bugs that need fixing, so Blizzard outlined a hotfix schedule for the next two weeks.
      Blizzard (Source)
      We are currently in the process of putting out a few hotfixes for issues introduced after the 17.0 update. Please note that these fixes take place on the server side, so you should not need to download anything if you’ve updated to 17.0.
      We’ve identified and fixed an issue that could cause the game to fail to offer some eligible players the Returning Player Experience. Affected players should now receive the appropriate quest line when logging into Hearthstone. Whizbang the Wonderful will no longer offer decks with cards that have moved to the Hall of Fame. Kingsbane will now correctly be destroyed and shuffled into your deck when it reaches 0 durability. Living Roots, when disenchanted, now properly gives the amount of dust of a common instead of an epic. However, its gem rarity will not be updated until Monday (3/30). Invoke cards will now no longer appear from cards that generate other cards. Clever Disguise will now correctly function as intended when played. This coming Monday (3/30), we’re planning to deploy a data-only patch that addresses a couple more issues:
      Darkness Awaits will no longer be incorrectly marked as collectible in the Collection. Basic cards will no longer be incorrectly earned from Arena rewards. Living Root’s gem rarity will be corrected from Epic to Common. There are several known issues that will self-resolve on 4/7 when the Demon Hunter and Ashes of Outland unlock:
      Felfin Navigator will correctly appear in the Battlegrounds minion pool. The Battlegrounds Perks button will correctly function as intended when clicked. The new Priest cards will correctly appear in the Arena card pool. Demon Hunter Initiate cards will no longer be granted by completing Galakrond’s Awakening Chapters. Hallucination and Blink Fox will work correctly when played against Demon Hunter in Practice Mode. Curious Glimmerroot will no longer cause client crashes when played against Demon Hunter in Practice Mode. The Search Bar in the Collection will correctly function as intended, and will no longer jump to the top of the screen. Additionally, there are a few Boomsday Project Puzzles that can no longer be completed now because of card changes introduced in 17.0. We’re planning to deploy a fix for Boomsday Project Puzzles on April 9.
      We are investigating several other reports and will keep you posted as we know more. We’d like to thank everyone for their patience while we get some of these bugs squashed!
