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.

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

      Two more cards from Knights of the Frozen expansion were revealed and Blizzard communicated why there was just a single card reveal before that. The cards are Ice Breaker and Plague Scientist.
      Three card reveals were scheduled for today and the reveal for the second and third card was delayed and the reason is that those reveals were all with partners that couldn't make it happen today due to various reasons.

      We originally had a few more card reveals for today, but the card reveals were all with partners and they unfortunately couldn't happen today due to a variety of issues. But good news! There will be two more card reveals tonight, so please look forward to them. There will also be more card reveals happening every day this week! The first card that was revealed is the Ticking Abomination and here are the next two:
      Shaman's Ice Breaker
      Ice Breaker will synergize well with Frost Shock and we'll have to see Freeze effects of other cards first to determine its usefulness and full potential. Ice Breaker will be good for minion removal combined with Glacial Shard. For now, the card looks better than Shatter.

      Rogue's Plague Scientist
      Provides Rogues with much needed board clear (hard removal). Synergizes well with Tentacle of N'Zoth, Wild Pyromancer. On the other hand for Constructed, it competes with Vilespine Slayer and SI:7 Agent that both seem to be better choices.

      The first card since the initial annoucement for Knights of the Frozen Throne has been revealed by C4mlann earlier this morning.
      Let's take a look at the first KotFT card officially revealed by C4mlann.

       
      Blizzard kicks off the reveal with a card that seems unplayable in all currently popular decks, and subpar in arena. Although some players have suggested silence priest as a potential target, Ticking Abomination is actually detrimental to play without a form of silence in hand, unlike other popular silence targets. The caveat here is that since this is one the first card revealed, we don't actually know what's in store. Might there be a way to transfer Deathrattle effects to enemy minions? Will KotFT control decks play no minion before turn 5? One potential use for this one might lie in "forcing" your opponent to trigger your own Deathrattle effects with a high value card, but we'll have to wait and see. We might even see something that gives Deathrattle effects Lifesteal, the expansion's new mechanic, for some minion-based healing.
      For more information, please check out our guide to the new Hearthstone expansion.

      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.
