are Artramedes and Omnotron the same character?  I haven't gotten that far yet, but I just thought I'd point this error out because it's kinda confusing if you haven't done it yet. 

 

 

Atramedes is the third boss of the Hidden Laboratory, the fifth and final wing of Blackrock Mountain. In this guide, you will learn how to use cheap decks to defeat Omnotron in both Normal and Heroic modes.

This fight reminded me of Patchwerk in the Naxxramas adventure. So the obvious choice is Mage in order to freeze Atramedes.

I was very successful with a variant the new Flamewaker deck:

2x Ice Lance
2x Mana Wyrm
2x Mirror Image
2x Acidic Swamp Ooze
2x Flamecannon
2x Frostbolt
2x Loot Hoarder
2x Snowchugger
2x Sorcerer's Apprentice
2x Unstable Portal
2x Arcane Intellect
2x Flamewaker
2x Fireball
2x Jeeves
2x Water Elemental
 

With this deck the fight was done in the first try! O_o I didn't even mind Flamewaker popping those eggs because of the enormous power of this deck. :D

These are the cheapest decks I beat Heroic Atramedes with.

Atramedes' deck is relatively easy to deal with as it contains no unfair cards. The biggest threat in this fight is his weapon, which must repeatedly be destroyed or frozen to stay alive.

F2P Priest (0 Dust)
Difficulty: medium (may take up to 10 tries)
Inspiration:



2x Northshire Cleric
2x Power Word: Shield
2x Acidic Swamp Ooze
2x Divine Spirit
2x Murloc Tidehunter
2x Shadow Word: Pain
2x Razorfen Hunter
2x Shadow Word: Death
2x Shattered Sun Cleric
2x Dragonkin Sorcerer
2x Hungry Dragon
2x Blackwing Corruptor
2x Holy Nova
1x Emperor Thaurissan
2x Stormwind Champion
1x Chromaggus

Buff Dragonkin Sorcerer.
Use Shadow Word: Pain against Blackwing Technician.
Use Shadow Word: Death against Drakonid Crusher, Emperor Thaurissan and Onyxia.
Only play Hungry Dragon, if you can deal with the 1-drop.


F2P Mage (0 Dust)
Difficulty: medium (may take up to 10 tries)
Inspiration: http://www.icy-veins.com/hearthstone/basic-atramedes-mage-deck-normal-mode

2x Arcane Missiles

2x Acidic Swamp Ooze
2x Frostbolt
2x Kobold Geomancer
2x Murloc Tidehunter
2x Flamewaker
2x Frost Nova
2x Razorfen Hunter
2x Fireball
2x Hungry Dragon
2x Polymorph
2x Water Elemental
1x Emperor Thaurissan
1x Flamestrike
1x Stormwind Champion
1x Chromaggus

Use Water Elemental to freeze Atramedes.
Use Mirror Image to protect Water Elemental.
Only play Arcane Missiles to trigger Flamewaker.
Use Frost Nova to stall and trigger Flamewaker until turn 7 and Flamestrike.
Use Fireball to kill Emperor Thaurissan and Twilight Drake.
Use Polymorph to deal with 9/9-Drakonid Crusher and Onyxia.
 

Cheerio,

Bob

Since you will have have acquired Chromaggus from your previous victory in this dungeon, you could put him in the basic deck in place of Stormwind Champion. With Chromaggus's ability you will have an unlimited supply of the cards Atramedes gives you to destroy his weapon. The game should be no pressure after that.

My problem is not his weapon, it is that every turn he can swarm multiple minions on the  board, so it is impossible to get board control, so he will just kill you with his minions, his weapon is unnecessary.

My first attempt at Heroic Atramedes was successful, using my Silence druid.

I played a Zombie Chow on T1, and I just attacked with that and my hero power until T4. This kept his weapon from growing. I suppose I was lucky though. He didn't play anything until coining out a Dark Iron Dwarf on T3. I got my Fel Reaver out on T5. Atramedes nearly milled me before I finally silenced Fel Reaver at the end. Of course, at that point it didn't matter. One Savage Roar did him in at T9...and I scraped by with 1 health left. Whew! (Oh, I know I had lethal without playing Wailing Soul, but I couldn't risk Ogre Brute attacking one of the minions. Silencing the ogre made sure that he would go face! smile.png )

 

I admit that this wasn't the best option for beating Atramedes. I didn't even have any weapon destruction. I think the fact that I was successful on my first attempt using this deck goes to show that this is one of the easier bosses.

      Aleco walks through a series of simple early-game decisions while playing an Unstable Evolution deck.
      "Simple early game decisions" and "multi-turn decisions" are the two most common requests I've been receiving since the start of this series, so I decided to do an episode that tackles both! In today's episode I navigate a series of relatively simple early-game decisions against an aggressive Hunter start with my Unstable Evolution Shaman deck.
      If you have any requests for future episodes of "What's the Move?", please feel free to reach out to me here on Icy Veins or via Twitter @Aleco_P. I prefer to always fulfill requests for new episodes if possible, and always love hearing feedback from the community which can help me improve on this series in the future. Don't be shy!
