Damien

Hearthstone Lord Victor Nefarius / Nefarian

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

 

since I am not able to build the decks you suggest for Nefarian, I looked for another tip and found this Warroir deck on Hearthpwn working quite well:

http://www.hearthpwn.com/decks/235814-heroic-nefarius-consistent

I also lack some cards of that list, so I replaced:

1x Bouncing Blade with 1x Doomsayer,

1x Brawl with 1x Sylvanas (highly recommended!),

1x Gorehowl with a second Arcanite Reaper

and 2x Crush with 2x Inner Rage as an activator for Execute.

The strategy with this deck is not to actively mill Nefarian, but to do it passively: The majority of Warrior's spells influence the board. So, if you do not play any minions, the copied spells will stack in Nefarian’s hand and eventually he will mill himself. You just have to try and deal with the few minions he plays using your large arsenal of removal spells and a few weapons. As his hand grows he will put out less and less minions each turn, while you build up armor and prepare a devastating Brawl. Prepare Nefarian’s Fatigue by hitting his face with your weapons in order to reduce his big armour advantage.

It took 4 tries for me to beat Nefarian with this strategy. :)

 

Good luck!

Bob

Bob21117 has the right idea.  I tried a ton of times with Druid decks and at least ten of those where with the Damien build.

I tried twice with the Warrior deck:http://www.hearthpwn...rius-consistent and it was good to go!  In fact once I figured out the point was to kill everything in sight and shield up.... it was simple.  Got to the end and for the last 8 draws the boss could play nothing.  I was one card behind him so when we went into deck burn mode I wondered how it would work.  Simple math. Even if you are below him a bit (I had 7 life and 35 shield and he had like 30 life and 15 shield or something close) don't worry because you can add 2 shield each time which he cannot.  Math is like BOOM BOSS MAN! smile.png

This is the cheapest deck I beat Heroic Lord Victor Nefarius with.

Nefarius has a huge mana advantage and can constantly pressure you and your board with spells he copies from your class.
Still, his Hero Power can be abused: Nefarius will keep damage spells in his hand and only use them to remove minions or if he has lethal. So, if you never have minions on the board, the cards will stack and Nefarius will eventually overdraw and burn his entire deck.
You have to deal with the minions and the few spells Nefarius will play nevertheless and keep yourself alive. This way you have a chance even with a basic deck.

F2P Warrior (0 Dust)
Difficulty: easy (may take up to 5 tries)
Inspiration: http://www.hearthhead.com/deck=106434/0-cost-hr-nefarius-destroyer

2x Execute
2x Whirlwind
2x Bluegill Warrior
2x Cleave
2x Fiery Waraxe
2x Heroic Strike
2x Revenge
2x Charge
2x Magma Rager
2x Shield Block
2x Wolfrider
2x Kor'kron Elite
2x Stormwind Knight
2x Arcanite Reaper
2x Reckless Rocketeer

To minimize the usable spells Nefarius can steal you should stick to the following rules:
- Try to never have a (damaged) minion on your side of the board by suiciding your chargers to avoid Execute and Mortal Strike.
- If you have to let a minion of yours live, never play a second one to avoid Cleave, Whirlwind, Revenge, Brawl and Bouncing Blade.
- Try not to leave Nefarius' injured minions on the board to avoid Rampage and Battle Rage.
Always combine Magma Rager with Charge to run it into Drakonid Crusher or Twilight Drake.
 

Cheerio,

Bob

Guest trying

Just to say, the original thread deck is working well ( https://www.icy-veins.com/hearthstone/basic-lord-victor-nefarius-nefarian-mage-deck-normal-mode) with only common cards. After a lot of tries with different decks this one worked on the first try, i just swiped the bloodfen Raptors and the River Crocolisks with similar cost/ratio cards having an ability (amani berserk and sorcerer apprentice). Amani worked quite well but wasn't necessary to win this, the apprentices were OS on cast (taking out some of nefarian's spells).

I tried the basic mage deck, simply because I'm not lucky enough with opening packs, and don't want to sink money in the game, anwyay, no luck, not even close to defeating Nefarian. 

 

Which doesn't surprise me. A mage has such powerfull spells, not just for clearing the board, but also for killing you. I really find it strange that someone who knows how to build decks would choose mage against a foe that gets unlimited spells from that same class. But then again, I'm a noob when it comes to deckbuiling. However, I chose to build a paladin deck against Nefarian with anything I had, based on exchanging his expensive minions cheaply and building a resonably strong board:

 

2x Avenge

2x Blessing of might

1X Blessing of wisdom

1X Eye for an eye

2X Hand of protection

2X Humility

1X Redemption

2X Holy Light

1X Seal of light

1X Echoing Ooze

1X Frostwolf grunt

2X Shielded minibot

1X Sword of Justice

1X Ironfur Grizzly

1X Mind control tech

2X Truesilver champion

2X Blessing of kings

2X Hammer of wrath

1X Chillwind yeti

1X Quartermaster

1X Guardian of kings

 

I defeated him in the first go, with lots of health left. I have no idea how it worked, but it did.

apparently he got astral communion from hero power when he had full hand, in his opinion it was the best play T_T

Warrior vs Heroic Nefarian- won on 2nd attempt...

 

PFSEUBa.png

 

...but it took me 27 total attempts, using 7 other decks, 5 other classes. I've done all of Heroic Naxx and all BRM heroic bosses leading up to Nefarian, and I do believe he has proven most difficult for me. After 15 failed attempts with my own decks, I gave the featured paladin and druid decks a try. After five attempts with each of them, I turned to the alternative warrior strategy mentioned by Bob on this forum. This playstyle was new to me (even just warrior as a class is my least played of all), so I sort of fumbled my way through it, but IT WORKS! You guys should add a warrior decklist to the site for those struggling with the druid and paladin. ;)

I've been trying to beat him with the paladin deck but I get destroyed every time.

it says his minions are the biggest threat but I find them to be easily taken out. The real problem is that the boss himself does up to 8 damage each turn and this deck has no way to mitigate any of it.

i know this fight is old, so I don't know if they changed the mechanics but I don't know if this deck is still viable

11 damage from the boss in turn 2. I don't know how anybody can deal with that

A good idea would be to replace the Yeti x2 with Hungry Dragon x2.

You earned Hungry Dragon from earlier in Blackrock Campaign, and it is a powerful card that works well with the control aspects of this deck. Having him have a random 1 cost card is not helpful to Nefarius.

I think the deck is intended to allow anyone to complete the fight, so they might not be completing the full run in the same order. I believe, if you buy it as 1 set, you can start wherever you wish. Correct me if I'm wrong!

      Doom in the Tomb is now live and the update comes with all-new 1,000 Win Portrait Rewards and 23 cards that are temporarily stepping out of Wild back into Standard. Note that the cards will remain in Standard until the next major update and exact end dates and times will be announced in the weeks ahead.
      Blizzard (Source)
      A new Hearthstone update has just arrived, featuring the “Doom in the Tomb” Hallow’s End event, Wild cards temporarily returning to Standard, portrait rewards for dedicated Hearthstone players, and much more!
      New Event - Doom in the Tomb!

      Pack your torches and latch your helmets, Heroes. The Headless Horseman has infiltrated Uldum’s deserted desert tombs, outfitted himself with powerful relics, and has set his sights on besting the battling Leagues! The new Doom in the Tomb event starts today, October 8, and will last until October 30. Here’s what’s in store:

      Week 1: Doom in the Tomb, Part 1
      Gear up with your favorite member from the League of E.V.I.L and delve into the Haunted Temple, full of the baddest bosses in Uldum! The clock is running, too – race to set the record for the fastest Temple run! Rewards Complete a run in under 1 hour and earn a Rastakhan’s Rumble Card Pack. Complete a run in under 40 minutes to earn a Golden Common Ancient Mysteries!
      Week 2: Doom in the Tomb, Part 2
      E.V.I.L has their turn, and now it’s up to Reno and the League of Explorers to join the run and flex their Temple diving speed. New enemies and challenges await!

      Rewards Complete a run in under 1 hour and receive a Golden Common Temple Berserker Complete a run in under 40 minutes to earn a Golden Rare Generous Mummy
      Week 3: The Haunted Carousel
      Get ready for the big mix-up! In this Tavern Brawl, you’ll need to strategize around minions constantly rotating board positions – all while controlling the Horseman’s time-shifted Dreadsteeds!

      Rewards Summon 100 Dreadsteeds to earn a Rise of Shadows Card Pack Dual-Class Heroes

      The Dual-Class Arena Hallow’s Eve dress-up party is back! When you start an Arena run during the Doom in the Tomb event, you’ll choose a Hero, then a Hero Power, and card offerings will feature cards from BOTH of those classes, in addition to neutral cards.
      Players who have an active Arena run when this begins will have their current run ended and will receive an Arena Ticket as compensation. To ensure that players have a chance to try out this devilish dual-class deck-building dress-up party, anyone who logs in during each of the first two weeks will receive one Arena Ticket per week! This event coincides with our normal Arena rotation. The new Arena sets in rotation are as follows: Curse of Naxxramas Goblins vs. Gnomes Blackrock Mountain The Grand Tournament League of Explorers Whispers of the Old Gods One Night in Karazhan Mean Streets of Gadgetzan Journey to Un'Goro Knights of the Frozen Throne Kobolds & Catacombs Hex & Flex Bundles

      Hex Bundle
      If you thought the League of E.V.I.L. was securely under wraps, think again! Arch-Villain Rafaam has leveraged his lackeys and put together the Hex Bundle, 20 Rise of Shadows card packs and a random Rise of Shadows Legendary card at the discounted price of $19.99 USD. Flex Bundle
      Reno’s vest just doesn’t have room for bulging biceps AND stacks of card packs. That’s why he’s whipped together the Flex Bundle! Get 20 Saviors of Uldum packs and a random Saviors of Uldum Legendary card at the discounted price of $19.99 USD. Standard Shake-Up

      Starting with today’s patch and lasting until our next major update, 23 cards from across Hearthstone history are temporarily stepping out of Wild and back into Standard. To ensure that everyone can participate in this meta-mixing event, we’ll be granting everyone free copies of each card (these copies cannot be disenchanted or crafted) so they can add these heavy-hitters to their decks and get straight into the action. These cards will be considered "event" cards, which essentially means that they're temporary copies and not permanent additions to your collection. Even if you already own the cards you'll still receive these event copies, and when the event ends they'll disappear.
      IMPORTANT NOTE: While these cards were re-introduced during the Doom in the Tomb event, they will remain in Standard past the event's conclusion, until the launch of our next major update. More details will be shared, including exact end dates and times, in the coming weeks.
      Card List: Druid: Astral Communion Kun the Forgotten King Mage: Babbling Book Flamewaker Paladin: Mysterious Challenger Avenge Hunter: Lock and Load Call of the Wild Shaman: Evolve Thing from Below Rogue: Shaku, the Collector Swashburglar Priest: Lightbomb Vol'jin Warlock: Imp Gang Boss Renounce Darkness Warrior: Varian Wrynn Bloodhoof Brave Neutral: N'Zoth, the Corruptor Sylvanas Windrunner Ragnaros the Firelord The Curator Emperor Thaurissan 1,000 Win Portrait Rewards

      The time has come for dedicated Hearthstone players to flex their Hero mastery! We’re introducing new portraits earned by achieving 1,000 Ranked or Arena wins with each class. Wins earned before this update goes live will retroactively count towards these totals.

      Fire Mage Jaina

      Blizzard today announced a new event coming to the game on October 8. It's called Doom in the Tomb. Check out what's in store for Hearthstone this month!
      UPDATE
      Placeholder for tweet 1180177096972222464 Blizzard (Source)
      Legends have told of dangers lurking within the Haunted Temple of Uldum and the grand ancient treasures they conceal. Of course, “treasure” was all anyone had to mention to get Reno and Rafaam on board, and now their sights are set on acquiring the temple’s powerful artifacts for their own campaigns!
      It won’t be an easy task, though. While our Heroes and Villains battle to push deeper through the Haunted Temple, the Headless Horseman has resorted to a nefarious contingency and opened a sealed sarcophagus full of WILD terrors. Now it will be up to you to aid the conquests of good, or E.V.I.L, in a race to uncover the tomb’s precious secrets and escape the doom in the tomb!

      Step into the Haunted Tomb
      The spooky spelunking adventures begin at 10:00 AM PT on October 8 and end at 9:00 AM PT on October 30 – three weeks packed full of new activities to participate in:

      Unique Tavern Brawls

      Treasures from the Tomb!

      23 cards from across Hearthstone history have been unsealed from Wild and unleashed by the Headless Horseman! Until our next major update, these cards are stepping out of Wild and will be playable in Standard matches. To ensure that everyone can participate in this meta-mixing event, we’ll be granting everyone free copies of each card (these copies cannot be disenchanted or crafted) so they can add these heavy-hitters to their decks and get straight into the action.

      Today we get a look at some of the smaller stuff coming up in Hearthstone's future, including new events like dual-class arenas, 23 old cards returning to standard (Ragnaros and N'zoth were mentioned), new class portraits for 1000 wins, and plenty of quality of life improvements!
      Behind the Doors (source)
      While we’re constantly recruiting lackeys, tinkering with experimental tech, and delving into dusty tombs to bring you new Hearthstone expansions and Adventures, we’re also hard at work on some awesome, albeit less flashy, new stuff. In this blog we’ll shine a light on some of the smaller, but still exciting new features, events, and changes coming to Hearthstone in the near future.

       
      Adding More Events

      After the overwhelmingly positive response to the recent Fire Fest-E.V.I.L. event, we’re looking for more opportunities to introduce even more large-scale in-game events with rewards, themed Tavern Brawls, and changes that could temporarily (or permanently!) create fun new Hearthstone experiences for players.
      We’re starting off with a new event in just a couple weeks featuring Dungeon Run-inspired Tavern Brawls, dual-class Arenas, Legendary quest rewards, and some meta-shifting changes outlined in the “Shaking up Standard Play” section below.
      We’ll have more to share on this sensationally spooky event on October 4, but in the meantime . . . try not to lose your head!
       

      Shaking up Standard Play

      Now that the Saviors of Uldum Standard ladder experience has solidified, we think it’s a great time to throw a wrench or two (or twenty-three) in the gears. We’re going to be pulling some of the most popular and game-changing cards from across Hearthstone history, including
      Ragnaros the Firelord and N'Zoth, the Corruptor, out of Wild and dropping them back into Standard for a limited time. To ensure that everyone can participate in this meta-mixing event, we’ll be granting everyone free copies of each card (these copies cannot be disenchanted or crafted) so they can add these heavy-hitters to their decks and get them into the action.
      We’ll be sharing more details (including the full list of 23 cards) in a blog update on October 4. Stay tuned!

      1,000 Win Class Portraits
      Looking ahead, we want to continue celebrating personal successes and milestones for all you dedicated Hearthstone players. Our next major update will introduce some really cool new portraits that you can earn by earning 1,000 wins with each class. Wins earned before this update goes live will retroactively count towards these totals. Take a look at a couple of examples below and start stacking up those wins!



      Quality of Life Improvements
       
      Alternate Search Terms
      We want it to be easier to quickly find the cards you’re looking for while deckbuilding, so we’re adding alternate search terms for some hard-to-type cards. We’ll be adding common misspellings and simplified versions of leetspeak card names (found on some Mech minions). For example, searching “snip” or “snap” will now show you SN1P-SN4P. While this feature will only be enabled for a few commonly misspelled cards at first, we’ll be able to add even more alternate search terms as needed.
      This feature will also support languages other than English. For example, SN1P-SN4P in Latin American Spanish is “CL1C-CL4C”, so searching “clic” would return the expected results. Quest Changes
      While not included in our next major update, here’s a preview of some of the changes we’re making to quests a little further down the line.
      We’re cutting some of the less popular daily quests and tuning down some of their requirements to make them quicker and easier to complete. We’ll also be adding some new quests to the pool to mix things up! We split most daily quests into two buckets: Easy (50g) and Slightly More Difficult (60g). Rerolling a Slightly More Difficult (60g) quest (like Play 10 Beasts) always gives you an Easy (50g) quest, so players can be guaranteed to get an Easy quest every day if they want. We love  Murlocs and Pirates as much as anyone, but it should be your choice if you decide to complete their quests.
      We’re excited to be bringing these new features, events, and other changes to Hearthstone soon. Please let us know what you think on social media or the official Hearthstone forums. Until then, we’ll see you in the Tavern!
