It's not true for me that he focusses the hero, I did as in the guide but he focuses my minions if they are a thread for him...

Great deck... was able to beat it in one try with only 6 cards substituted.  Nice work.

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.

      A new Tavern Brawl has been introduced this week by Ahune the Frost Lord himself.
      In this Brawl, you will play as either Uther or Jaina. They both have premade decks and Uther is reportedly slightly better than Jaina, which is interesting since Mage usually dominates in Tavern Brawls.
      Here is Uther's deck:
      Jaina uses a Reno deck, minus the Reno:
      Both heroes are immune to damage and they cannot be healed nor keep armor. The only way to damage them is by killing the Ragnaros? minions. These are 1/4 minions and there is one of them at each side of the board. They cannot attack and upon death they deal 4 damage to the opponent of the current player. This means that you can kill both minions (the one on your side and the one on your opponent's side) and your opponent will take all the damage. Moreover, once a Ragnaros? dies, a new one will appear thus making it possible to kill multiple of them in one turn.

      Some tips you should know:
      If the game reaches the fatigue stage, in the next round the enemy that has the least amount of health will automatically die and their opponent will be crowned as the winner. At the moment, Ice Block and Eye for an Eye seem to be bugged and they are not working as intended. This will be fixed soon. Bomb Squad and Ancient Curse deal no actual damage to you, so don't be afraid! This is the 110th Brawl and it's part of the Frost Festival. If you want to find out more about the Frost Festival, check our main article on it.

      As Ragnaros' Midsummer Fire Festival has ended, it is time for Ahune the Frost Lord to take over with the Frost Festival! 
      As we explained in our previous post, this is a holiday that celebrates Arena mode. Once you log in the game, you will see that Ahune is giving you a free Arena ticket for this week. This will happen for the entire duration of the festival, so in total you will get three free Arena keys.
      You will also get a free win each time you start an Arena run, whether it's from a free or a purchsed entrance key.
      You will also get a quest to play three Arena games. This weekly quest awards you with a Knights of the Frozen Throne card pack. Once again, you will receive this quest next week and the week after that accounting for a total of three Knights of the Frozen Throne packs (assuming you complete the quests).

      Feel free to check out our Arena guides and card rankings before you step into the Arena!
      As far as the themed Tavern Brawl called Ahune's Superior Brawl is concerned, you can read more about it here.
      The Frost Festival has created speculation for the next expansion. Since it will run for three weeks, it is going to end on August 9. The day after that, August 10, is thought by many to be the date that Knight of the Frozen Throne will be released.

      Well, after the failed interview with Ben Brode and his dreams of being a Hearthstone developer squashed, the Lord of the Scourge decided to prove himself an accomplished entrepreneur and take what he's naturally good at - making ice - and adding cream. And so, behold the new ICC, Arthas' latest wondrous edifice: the Ice Cream Citadel.
      Of course, true to form, Blizzard took this little in-joke all the way and will have the Ice Cream Citadel, an actual ice cream shop, at the Petco Park Interactive Zone in San Diego near San Diego Comic-Con®, featuring two flavors: Villain-illa and Scourgeberry Sorbet.

      Greetings, mortal whelps!
      As part of my efforts to prove to the accursed Brode that I possess the necessary experience to command the Hearthstone development team, I have decided to expand my efforts to all aspects of mortal enterprise.
      At first I considered peddling power and vengeance, but according to my focus testing, the foremost human craving seems to be for cold, creamy, sweetened sludge. I have decided to create a frozen-cream sugar-ooze unlike any you have ever tasted. You will desire it.
      Prepare yourselves for the grand opening of Ice Cream Citadel, a fortress of refreshment in the scorching heat that afflicts this place. I will be on hand to personally help you conquer the heat with free ice cream. You need spend no money for your first taste of my power.
      Choose from an endless selection of TWO flavors:

      Behold my tasteful brochure:

      Attend the Petco Park Interactive Zone in San Diego near San Diego Comic-Con® and be guided to your just desserts by this map:

      You may also take photographs of me with no immediate fear of retribution. Share proof of your delicious ice cream conquests on social media using the #icecreamcitadel “hashtag,” whatever that means.
      Begin preparations for your journey now. Ice Cream Citadel will receive supplicants between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m. PDT July 20 through July 22, and 9:00 am to 5:00 pm PDT on July 23.
