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!

      We have a new Tavern Brawl this week and the rules are simple: both players get to have two turns, instead of one.
      This starts from the very beginning of the game, therefore giving a big advantage to Player 1. Don't be surprised if your opponent concedes when he/she finds out that he/she has to go second (or if you have to do it)!
      Doomsayer is a must-have on this Tavern Brawl, since it clears the board immediately. Flappy Bird is also a useful card and Aggro decks are generally favoured. OTK decks also can work great since you have two turns to set up your... one-turn kill. You can also experiment with Open the Waygate and Temporus; both cards work and they give you a third turn!

      The reveal season will span between November 19 - 28.
      As usual, the card reveals will begin with a live stream on November 19 at 10:00 a.m. PST hosted by Peter Whalen and Regiskillbin.
      Then, we'll have two weeks of community card reveals:
      Week of November 19 11/19 12PM 11/19 11PM 11/20 2AM 11/20 4AM 11/20 5AM 11/20 7AM 11/20 8AM 11/20 9AM 11/20 11AM 11/20 8PM 11/21 2AM 11/21 4AM 11/21 7AM 11/21 11AM 11/21 1PM 11/21 6PM 11/21 11PM 11/22 1AM 11/22 4AM 11/22 7AM 11/22 10AM 11/22 11PM 11/23 4AM 11/23 6AM 11/23 7AM 11/23 11AM 11/23 2PM 11/23 10PM 11/23 11PM 11/24 1AM 11/24 7AM 11/24 11AM 11/24 1PM 11/24 11PM 11/25 4AM 11/25 7AM 11/25 11AM 11/25 7PM 11/25 11PM   Week of November 26 11/26 2AM 11/26 4AM 11/26 7AM 11/26 8AM 11/26 11AM 11/26 9PM 11/26 11PM 11/27 1AM 11/27 4AM 11/27 7AM 11/27 11AM 11/27 6PM 11/27 11PM Lastly, there will be a final live stream on the official Hearthstone Twitch channel on November 28 at 10:00 a.m. PST.

      The Hearthstone heroes are trying to enjoy Rastakhan's Rumble but a fellow spectator named Belligerent Gnome is annoying Rexxar!
      Wronchi have released the second part of their Rastakan's Rumble series of animations. You remember that in the first part the nine heroes were trying to get into the Gurubashi Arena. Now, we see that Rexxar, Jaina and Anduin are enjoying the games but there's a little fellow that's too loud for Rexxar's taste.
      And here he is:

      No wonder Rexxar is angry since this is definitely a Silverback Patriarch power creep! Although one would expect that Gul'dan would be equally angry, since this is a Vulgar Homunculus with a condition for every class!
      To start the serious discussion on this card, this looks like an anti-aggro tool that can also probably find its place in aggro decks as well. It's hard to see the Battlecry trigger on turn 2 exactly, making this a bit of a slower card. Dragon Priest used to have a similar card in Wyrmrest Agent, which was easier to trigger. Even decks could be a good place for Belligerent Gnome - Even Shaman, in particular, since I don't see Warlocks dropping their beloved Homunculus.
      It's definitely a versatile card with a lot of potential and it seems balanced - for now.
