Four rounds and I was victorious! I did have to substitute for Auchenai Soulpriest, Crazed Alchemist, and Injured Blademaster, but I didn't have any problems even allowing the system to auto substitute the remaining cards. The first few rounds were filled with bad RNG as far as silences went, but once I was able to quickly get rid of the rod and silence it on my side, Phaerix needed to change his name to Failrix.

 

I changed to the Priest build after I was unsuccessful with the Mage deck.

Easy win in round 6 vs Heroic Phaerix with this deck.

 

Drew Shadow Word:Pain in opening hand, then drew into inner fire & divine spirit combos over the next 6 turns. Finished with a 20/20 sunrod to Failrix's face.

I was missing a couple of cards ( a second LotN & a Holy Champ) and substituted with Youthful Brewmasters. Stuffed the rod up my shirt and done.

I beat him on Heroic with my control shaman. It took two attempts.

It's a very straightforward fight, as long as you eliminate the rod threat during the first couple of turns. A T1 Earth Shock did the trick for me. After that, I just maintained board control until I had enough to take him down. Hex was very useful as well. It neutralized the Hoplites or other big enemies, and it's a possible backup for the Earth Shock on T3 if you were unfortunate to have no answer for the rod during T1 or T2. Acidic Swamp Ooze is also useful, since the boss uses multiple weapons. I imagine you could easily defeat this boss with any class as long as you have silences or transforms and possibly weapon destruction. I even came close to beating him with a goofy face hunter deck that I had been playing around with. This boss fight offers a little more freedom than past bosses. Have fun with it. :)

I defeated Heroic Sun Raider Phaerix with these F2P decks.

Heroic Phaerix starts with a 3/8 Rod of the Sun, which makes him immune to any damage while he is controlling it. You have to get rid of the Rod to damage him, but it will be resummoned for the opponent each time it is killed.
Silencing or transforming the Rod will stop this circle and make the fight much easier.
Phaerix's deck includes a lot burn and removal: Fiery Waraxe, Tol'vir Hoplite, Fireball, Arcanite Reaper and Holy Fire, which can end the fight very quickly.
Phaerix will mostly attack your face and ignore your minions, but do not overextend until after the first Flamestrike.
Because of the high pressure Phaerix will put on you, while you still have to figure out how to deal with the Rod, it is highly recommended to use a Reno Jackson deck list.

      In episode two of "What's the Move?" Aleco discusses an open-ended situation which doesn't have a clear answer.
      In episode two of "What's the Move?" Aleco discusses an open-ended situation which doesn't have a clear answer.
      We kicked off this new series by analyzing a tricky situation which had only one optimal line of play. In episode two we'll take a look at a very different kind of situation, one where there might not be a perfect move at all.
      Please let us know in the comments what you would have done in this situation! One of the primary goals of this series is to foster improvement at Hearthstone by generating discussions. We would also love to hear your feedback on the video itself, as the series is still very new and has plenty room to improve on its format.

      In the latest Hearthstone update, Blizzard made adjustments to several cards. The patch is now live now on desktop and it should become available on mobile devices in the coming hours.
      Philosophy and reasons behind these changes can be found here.

      A new Brawl has landed in the Tavern.
      Just like with the previous expansions, it's time to try out the deck recipes of Knights of the Frozen Throne in this week's Tavern Brawl. The archetypes for each deck recipe are the following:
      Druid: I guess the best name for this deck is Midrange Druid. It has Ultimate Infestation and Spreading Plague, so... PROFIT?! Deathrattle Hunter Elemental Mage Divine Shield Paladin Control Priest (you've probably seen variations of it in ladder) Jade Deathrattle Rogue Freeze Shaman Zoolock Control Warrior with Enrage minions This is a good opportunity to try out cards that you don't own. Good luck and have fun!

      The balance patch is arriving in the beginning of the next week.
      The wait is over! The anticipated card balance changes will arrive on September 18th and hopefully freshen up the meta a little bit. As the case always is with balance patches, for the next two weeks if you disenchant Spreading Plague and/or Murloc Warleader, you will get their full value in Arcane Dust.
      Daxxarri
      In the recent Upcoming Balance Changes – Update 9.1 blog, we discussed the details and philosophy behind balance updates that are coming to several Hearthstone cards:
       
      Innervate - Now reads: Gain 1 Mana Crystal this turn only. (Down from 2) Fiery War Axe - Now costs 3 mana. (Up from 2) Hex - Now costs 4 mana. (Up from 3) Murloc Warleader - Now reads: Your other Murlocs have +2 Attack. (Down from +2 Attack, +1 Health) Spreading Plague - Now costs 6 mana. (Up from 5)
      This patch is currently targeted for September 18th PDT. Please note that updates for mobile devices may take a few additional hours to propagate.

      Once these card changes are live, players will be able to disenchant cards that are not Basic (Murloc Warleader and Spreading Plague) for their full Arcane Dust value for two weeks. Basic cards cannot be disenchanted and will not be available for an Arcane Dust refund. (source)
