Hearthstone Archaedas

You have mistakenly listed the Heroic Mode Shattering Spree as appearing in both modes. Normal Mode version does 1 damage not 3. You might have the same problem with Animate Earthen but I'm not sure.

Tried this deck over and over with no luck. Basing your strategy on a tank that gets targeted didn't seem like a good strat to me. Everyone seemed to be going priest or mill rogue, but without any preparation cards to try mill rogue, it seemed like that deck type would be at a disadvantage. I finally found a couple alternatives. Mill druid, which I did not try, and a freeze mage , which got me the kill finally after 1 try. This decks relies on Animated Armor to completely reduce all incoming damage along with some summoning stones to get the max potential out of all your spells. Here it is if you'd like to give it a go:

 

1x Mirror Image

1x Doomsayer

2x Mad Scientist

1x Sorceror's Apprentice

1x Arcane Brilliance

2x Forgotten Torch

2x Frost Nova

2x Ice Barrier

2x Ice Block

2x Saboteur

2x Fireball

2x Polymorph

2x Animated Armor

2x Summoning Stone

2x Blizzard

2x Flamestrike

1x Kel'Thuzad

 

Mad Scientist and Saboteur are great for mulligan then animated armor on turn 4 and summoning stone on 5 is optimal. Then freeze your way through until you can face damage him down using those fireballs for the taunt minions he throws down.

No matter what you do, this deck won't work. I suggest trying another deck :/

I disagree, as I used this deck and won just now.

 

It took several attempts (I'd say about a dozen) but if you can get ahead of the statues and gain full control of the board, it can be done. He had me down to about 4-5 hp, while he was still above 40 (30hp + armor). But I had succeeded in clearing away all statues on his side and mine, and started whittling him down. I managed to get a Doomguard out, and was able to use its 5 attack to take out statues as they appeared, throwing an Ironbeak Owl once to silence a taunt, and modifying my own statues as often as possible so that they could attack his minions (and, just as importantly, to die doing so.) I stayed right at 4 hp and brought him all the way to 0.

 

Don't give up! Gaining control of the board is hard on this one, but if you do it, you've got a great chance to win.

I defeated Heroic Archaedas with these F2P decks.

Archaedas will put a 0/5 Statue on his side of the board and a 0/2 on yours every turn. They will fill your board eventually and increase the risk of a potentially deadly Shattering Spree.
There are two big threats in this fight: Shattering Spree and Animate Earthen. If there are enough Statues on the board both spells can end the fight very quickly. If Archaedas uses Animate Earthen in the first 4 turns, the fight is probably lost.
You have to get rid of all Statues as soon as possible. To accomplish that you can do two things in particular: 1. Put various buffs or buffing minions into your deck. 2. Generate lots of tokens to fill your side of the board. The best classes to accomplish this are Shaman and Paladin.

F2P Paladin (0 Dust)

2x Blessing of Might
2x Humility
1x Holy Light
2x Jeweled Scarab
2x Murloc Tidehunter
1x Brann Bronzebeard
2x Raid Leader
2x Razorfen Hunter
2x Shattered Sun Cleric
2x Blessing of Kings
2x Consecration
2x Dragonling Mechanic
2x Keeper of Uldaman
2x Truesilver Champion
2x Guardian of Kings
2x Stormwind Champion

Mulligan for Jeweled Scarab, Murloc Tidehunter and Razorfen Hunter.
Fill your board with tokens, use Blessings on Statues and Humility on Earth Elemental. Use Murloc Tidehunter, Jeweled Scarab and other Batllecry minions to trigger the Paladin Secret Sacred Trial.
Difficulty: Easy (may take up to 5 tries).

Deck changes for Normal Mode: 1x Holy Light and 2x Sen'jin Shieldmasta instead of 1x Brann Bronzebeard and 2x Keeper of Uldaman.


F2P Shaman (0 Dust)

Inspiration 2: http://www.hearthhead.com/deck=138767/loe-no-cost-solver-archaedas

2x Ancestral Healing
2x Rockbiter Weapon
2x Flametongue Totem
2x Jeweled Scarab
2x Murloc Tidehunter
1x Brann Bronzebeard
2x Hex
2x Raid Leader
2x Razorfen Hunter
2x Shattered Sun Cleric
2x Dragonling Mechanic
2x Rumbling Elemental
1x Windspeaker
2x Bloodlust
2x Fire Elemental
2x Stormwind Champion

Mulligan for Murloc Tidehunter, Flametongue Totem, Razorfen Hunter and Shattered Sun Cleric.
Fill your board with tokens, buff the Statues, Hex Earth Elementals. Use Murloc Tidehunter, Jeweled Scarab and other Batllecry minions to trigger the Paladin Secret Sacred Trial.

Thanks for the druid deck. It works for me on the second try. Important tip is to maintain board control and clear his minions. I got lucky too as he overload his mana from turn 2 to 7.

I used my Silence Druid to defeat Heroic Archaedas. It took two attempts.

The key card in this fight was Savage Roar. It enabled me to clear the few minions left on his board with my statues, essentially killing two birds with one stone. It's been said before that the statues on your side are a double whammy: They can do you a lot of damage via the spell Shattering Spree; they flood your board preventing you from playing more useful minions. I used silences on his statues after they had been buffed with Animate Earthen. They weren't much of a problem, because he only ever had two minions/statues on the board when he played that spell. Big Game Hunter was used to take out Earth Elemental. He got me pretty low on health, but after gaining board control and keeping the statue population in check, I was able to provide a bit of an armor cushion through the use of my hero power. Then it was a couple swift blows to the face to knock him down to size.

Either this has changed, somebody's blowing smoke about how easy this was to win, or I just suck so bad I need to stick to solitaire tic tac toe, which I will actually somehow manage to lose both sides of...

Are talking about heroic or normal Archaedas? Heroic was indeed problematic when he drew his Shattering Sprees and instafaced me. If you still have problems with him, just add me on battle.net and I will try to help you.

I appreciate that I'm coming to this a bit late. I just tried this on normal with the cheap Mage deck (the Cthun-based one). I won on the first attempt. Not sure if it was luck, but I managed to clear the statues fairly early with a clear spell, then gradually take over the board. I won in about turn 10 by playing Cthun, which was by then 16/16. Archaedas had 11 health by then, I had 28.

Well done on that! Generally, on Normal, if you're a good enough player you can breeze through without changing your deck much.

I tried this deck, and first try I beat it. Maybe I just had a lucky game, but it seems to be at least moderately effective. Don't knock this method too much guys.

Lastly, you’ll be able to find United in Stormwind cards in Duels card buckets after the patch goes live and before the expansion launches.
      Arena Rotation

      When United in Stormwind launches on August 3, the Arena will include cards from the following sets:

      After regaining his freedom, Illidan was eager to prove himself once and for all. But even as he journeyed far from his homeland and joined forces with new allies, the thirst for power never left him. It was only a matter of time before it interfered with his judgment, resulting in more dire consequences than ever before…Defeating all 8 bosses in this linear adventure will reward 1 Demon Hunter pack, containing only Demon Hunter cards from Standard.
      United in Stormwind Rewards Track & Tavern Pass
      When the Rewards Track refreshes when United in Stormwind launches, all players will automatically be granted any unclaimed rewards on both the free track and the Tavern Pass track (if purchased), and a completely new Rewards Track of unlockable loot will take its place.

      The Forged in the Barrens Tavern Pass will expire with the launch of United in Stormwind and a new Tavern Pass will be made available for purchase—offering a host of brand-new cosmetic rewards and XP boosts.

      Learn more about the United in Stormwind Rewards Track and Tavern Pass here.
      As a reminder, Battlegrounds Perks are now available as a standalone purchase, separate from the Tavern Pass.
      New Cosmetic Coins
      Two new Cosmetic Coins are being added with United in Stormwind, the Stormwind coin and the Lordaeron coin. The Stormwind coin is obtainable by completing the first 90 levels of the Rewards Track with the Tavern Pass. The Lordaeron coin is obtainable by collecting 135 unique United in Stormwind cards.

      Keep in mind that United in Stormwind will have a 35-card Mini-Set that will make it easier to reach both the 25 total United in Stormwind Legendary cards for the Archbishop Benedictus Diamond card reward and the 135 total United in Stormwind cards for the Lordaeron Cosmetic Coin. We’ll have more information to share about the United in Stormwind Mini-Set in the coming months.

      Here's a classic WoW history moment that's arriving in Hearthstone, as the United in Stormwind expansion is bringing with it a very familiar weapon, as well as the probably most famous mob type of all time connected directly with it!
      Many players got their start in WoW after watching the South Park "Make Love, Not Warcraft" episode, in which the kids are unable to play the game due to an extremely powerful player and have to grind low-level boars to get to max level - at the end of which Blizzard bring in the Sword of a Thousand Truths to slay that player. And now both the boars and the sword are arriving in Hearthstone, and are connected!

      Source: Chrononi.
      While the above is probably not viable as a competitive deck, it'll definitely get at least a couple of fun ones, and will almost certainly feature in a looot of highlight clips! It's a very well done reference to the episode as well, as the cards interact exactly the way the story progresses (well, it was a bit more than 7 boars but still). You can check out the episode here if you haven't seen it in a while (or ever) as it's definitely worth a rewatch!
