I'd like to start by saying that this is one of my favorite boss encounters. I just love mechanics like this, where the placement of your minions on the board really matters.

I used mage to defeat Heroic Netherspite, but I did so with only one taunt- Mirror Image. It took me two attempts, but the first was lost to a bad mulligan.


In the game with the win, my mulligan left me with Mirror Image, Frostbolt, and Ice Block. I drew Sorcerer's Apprentice next. I passed on Turn 1 so that I could lay down both Apprentice and Mirrors in unison on the next turn, blocking both beams at once and allowing my taunts to last longer. If you don't succeed in blocking the beams by Turn 2, you're as good as dead.

Unstable Portal gave me a Cutpurse, which was nice to have next to the windfury portal. His coins allowed me to play everything I wanted, whenever I needed/wanted to.

Even Spellslinger was helpful. First, he gave me the shaman spell Far Sight. Then, Netherspite cast Terrifying Roar, returning Spellslinger to my hand. When replayed, slinger gave me the shaman spell Windfury. Cast on Mana Wyrm to the right of the blue portal... As you can see in the screenshot above, Mana Wyrm was doing up to 18 damage per turn by the end.

Other useful cards:

Frostbolt and other freeze spells/effects save you from Netherspite's attack for a turn. On a side-note, it's funny that because his hero power is on auto-cast, he will waste that one mana to use it while frozen. Haha

Counterspell and Ice Block. In my match, the one Counterspell that I drew countered a Swipe. I also had an Ice Block in play, but did not need it. On the event that you are staring certain death in the face, you'll be glad to have it!

There are many cards that I would remove, such as the Flamecannon in my hand pictured above. I just went in with a mage deck that I already had, not realizing that Netherspite has no minions in his deck. Following the deck suggestions already provided by Sottle may be a more sure-fire way to win, but overall, you just need a great starting hand (mulligan wisely!) and some taunt like the sticky Sludge Belcher. :)

      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.
      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)
