Just beat Heroic Zinaar with this deck on the first try. 3 modifications:

-2x Saboteurs for 2x Sorcerer's Apprentice

-1x Archmage Anton for 1x Loatheb

-1x Cone of Cold for 1x flamecannon

 

The Saboteurs were awesome plays on rounds 3 and 4 to get tempo as Zinaar used all his mana to hero power. Cone of Cold froze his board for another tempo turn, and gave me time to draw into the flamewaker.

 

I had some rng in that the wishes I played gave me a 3rd Saboteur and 2 more cones of cold, which let me drop Antonidas for the finish.

 

Thanks for the deck.

I played with both the Mech deck and the Tempo deck. I had great success with the Tempo deck after a few tries. RNG was not friendly until the third round. As for the Mech Deck, either RNG was not my friend or I just could not get a hand on the proper card usage. Either way, Tempo was extremely helpful in putting Heroic Zinaar back into his lamp. :)

The Cheap heroic deck is not good enough , he keeps flooding the map with  minions and    removes my minions easy with removals spells...!

Face Hunter vs Heroic Zinaar

 

CakYrMb.png

 

I dove right in with a Face Hunter deck and beat him on my 2nd attempt without even reading any of this. Zinaar does seem a bit easier than previous heroic bosses. A cheap aggro hunter handled him easily. (That Foe Reaper in hand was one of the minions I chose from a wish, not part of my deck.) As you can see in the screenshot, I had multiple ways to deal lethal at the end. I couldn't focus face the whole time though. I had to take out some minions along the way. I used a couple weak minions to kill the Pit Snakes, so that they couldn't destroy my more valuable minions. Zinaar played two Stormwind Champions back to back. I laid down a taunt, but otherwise ignored them for a turn. The next turn, he played Fireguard Destroyer and Fire Elemental. That gave him a whopping 31 possible damage on his next attack. I had an Explosive Trap in place, and along with Leokk, Unleash the Hounds, and a couple other minions on the board, I was able to clear his. That was the only other instance in which I had to play D. Other than that, just race for face.

This is the F2P deck I defeated Heroic Zinaar with.

Zinaar's Hero Power gives him a mana crystal and a card every turn; in exchange, he gives you a Wish card. Those 0 mana spells allow you to either Discover a spell, a minion, or a 4-mana minion. Therefore no card draw or other Discover effects are needed in this match as they would only overstuff your hand.
Just try to stall with removal and taunts to eventually get lucky with some game changing Wish cards.

F2P Mage (0 Dust)

2x Arcane Missiles
2x Goldshire Footman
2x Mirror Image
2x Arcane Explosion
2x Frostbolt
2x Frostwolf Grunt
2x Kobold Geomancer
2x Forgotten Torch
2x Frost Nova
2x Ironfur Grizzly
2x Animated Armor
2x Fireball
2x Polymorph
2x Summoning Stone
2x Flamestrike

Mulligan for Animated Armor, then Goldshire Footman, Kobold Geomancer, Frostbolt and Forgotten Torch.
Remove Dunemaul Shaman as soon as possible to protect your Animated Armor.
Zinaar's minions will mostly ignore Animated Armor, but he will use Roaring Torch against it.
Difficulty: Easy (may take up to 5 tries).

Deck changes for Normal Mode: 2x Sen'jin Shieldmasta and 2x Water Elemental instead of 2x Animated Armor and 2x Summoning Stone.

      The Europe Spring Playoffs and Championship took place over the weekend of May 20-21, which decided not only the new Europe Champion, but also the four players who would represent Europe at the Global Spring Championship in Shanghai next month.
      After seven rounds of Swiss, the top eight players cut to a knockout phase. The results of which were as follows:
        Hoej beat   FibEli3
        Neirea beat   INER
        Rdu beat   Casie
        Kolento beat   StanCifka
      This means that Hoej, Neirea, Rdu, and Kolento will represent Europe in the Global Championship. The top eight being so strong is a sign that the metagame is in a healthy place. All of the players were already known to be among the best in Europe, and despite their lineups differing substantially, they were still able to make it through.
      Hoej went on to take the title, beating Kolento 3-0 in the final. Hoej has been touted as one of the best players in Europe for some time, but traditionally has brought Control decks to major events. This time around, he brought a very aggressive lineup, and was rewarded for his willingness to adapt his style to the meta.
      The deck archetypes that each player brought to the event are listed below:
      Hoej: Aggro Druid, Secret Mage, Murloc Paladin, Pirate Warrior
      Kolento: Jade Druid, Midrange Paladin, Quest Rogue, Quest Warrior
      Neirea: Jade Druid, Discover Mage, Quest Rogue, Quest Warrior
      Rdu: Aggro Druid, Face Hunter, Aggro Shaman, Pirate Warrior
      The next four players to qualify for the Global Championship will be decided next week, with the Americas Spring Championships.

      The Hearthstone Championship Tour (HCT) European Spring Playoffs will take place this weekend, 20-21 May 2017.
      This will be the first playoff event since Journey to Un'Goro was released, and so if anyone has saved any surprise deck tech, this is the event where it will be revealed.
      The top 64 point earners, and ties, from the EU server will be joined by 8 Tavern Hero tournament qualifiers for the event, which will be played in esports bars across Europe. If you want to attend one of the events to cheer on your local favourite, the list of locations can be found here. There will be side events for anyone wishing to attend, with Blizzard prizes available for winners, and the Power Core cardback for all attendees.
      The point standings, showing the top 64, can be found here. As usual the event is stacked with many of the big names from the region. The top four will advance to the HCT Spring Global finals next month.

      Fight Promoter is promoting Hearthstone by giving itself away! Ok, that didn't make sense, but the point is everyone gets a fee card for just logging in this Saturday!
      Blizzard (source)
      Yeah, we can get you a card. Really! Log in to Hearthstone on Saturday, May 20, to get a Fight Promoter card for free!

      No catch, just a free card--so don’t miss out.
      We’ll see you in the tavern!
