Hearthstone Vaelastrasz the Corrupt

7 posts in this topic

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: http://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

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!

      Blizzard have announced that the next update will contain big changes to the way Arena works.
      The newly announced changes will come into force at the same time as the nerfs to Small-Time Buccaneer and Spirit Claws, which we discussed previously.
      The most important change will be that Arena will change from Wild format to Standard. This will help to keep Arena feeling fresh, as well as make sure that card synergies can be drafted more easily.
      Changes have also been made to the distribution of cards. Common and Basic cards will show up less often, and the frequency of spells and class cards being offered has been raised. The full discussion can be found in the announcement link above, but the main reasoning is to allow players to have more opportunities to outdraft and outplay their opponents, rather than just playing the game on curve.
      This philosophy will have some implications in Standard too. If Blizzard are actively trying to reduce the impact of playing on curve in Arena, this could mean that they will carry over the same thoughts into constructed play. I feel that moving away from the style, unaffectionately known as Curvestone, would be good for the game. The changes will almost certainly be welcomed in the Arena community, and it is good to see Blizzard making them now, rather than waiting for the next set to launch.

      Im making a telegram bot that can send you new decks and news from https://www.icy-veins.com/hearthstone.
      It already can send some decks and filter them by class and deck format.
      Im going to open bot for all users in next few weeks. 
      Any suggestions?
