I defeated Heroic Lord Slitherspear with this F2P deck.

Slitherspear's hero power generates minions of growing strength on each turn, thus applying constantly rising pressure. At the same time Slithering Archer's Battlecry deals two damage to all of your minions, making it very hard to establish any board control.
Because of Slitherspear's enormous advantage in board presence it is no use fighting for board control. You have to try to rush him while reducing the incoming damage.

F2P Mage (0 Dust)
Inspiration 1: http://www.hearthhead.com/deck=141458/loe-nocost-solver-lord-slitherspear
Inspiration 2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gp6lfFNtm2k

2x Arcane Missiles
2x Mirror Image
2x Frostbolt
2x Forgotten Torch
2x Jeweled Scarab
1x Brann Bronzebeard
2x Frost Nova
1x Ironfur Grizzly
2x Animated Armor
2x Fireball
2x Polymorph
2x Sen'jin Shieldmasta
2x Ethereal Conjurer
2x Frostwolf Warlord
2x Summoning Stone
2x Flamestrike

Mulligan: Animated Armor. Additionally you can keep Jeweled Scarab and Summoning Stone.
Slitherspear will almost always attack your face and ignore Animated Armor. Keep it alive and it will keep you alive. Avoid attacking minions, prefer face damage.
Use Jeweled Scarab and Ethereal Arcanist to discover Frost Nova and other freeze or burn spells. Combine them with Brann Bronzebeard for a second discovery.
Combine Frostwolf Warlord with Mirror Image and Brann Bronzebeard to create a huge minion.
Difficulty: Easy (may take up to 5 tries), IF you play Animated Armor on turn 4.

Deck changes for Normal Mode: 2x Water Elemental instead of 2x Animated Armor.

The two more cards not listed in Heroic Lord Slitherspear is a pair of Battle Rage.

Thanks for that! I'll notify the writers :)

      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.

      Innervate now reads: Gain 1 Mana Crystal this turn only. (Down from 2)
      Fiery War Axe now costs 3 mana.  (Up from 2)

      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.

      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)
