The druid deck also uses Stalagg and Feugen before they have been unlocked.

These are the F2P decks I beat the Heroic Construct Quarter with.

Patchwerk
http://www.icy-veins.com/hearthstone/patchwerk-guide-for-the-curse-of-naxxramas

There are „only“ two problems in this fight: Patchwerk's weapon and his Hero Power. Simply playing taunts will not suffice, because Patchwerk's hero power can remove them easily. So you also have to freeze Patchwork, at best regularly.

F2P Mage (0 Dust)
Difficulty: medium (may take up to 10 tries)
Inspiration:



2x Goldshire Footman
2x Mirror Image
2x Acidic Swamp Ooze
2x Frostbolt
2x Frostwolf Grunt
2x Unstable Ghoul
2x Deathlord
2x Duplicate
2x Ironfur Grizzly
2x Silverback Patriarch
2x Fireball
2x Sen'jin Shieldmasta
2x Water Elemental
2x Booty Bay Bodyguard
2x Sludge Belcher

Mulligan for Goldshire Footman, Frostbolt and Acidic Swamp Ooze.
Coin out your Ooze on turn 1: Patchwerk can only reequip his weapon on turn 3.
Play a taunt each turn, especially on the turn before Patchwerk's weapon runs out or you destroy it with Acidic Swamp Ooze. This way he cannot use Hateful Strike (4 mana) and equip his new weapon (3 mana) on the same turn.
Note: Acidic Swamp Ooze will be useless on turn 2 and from turn 7 on, as Patchwerk then will always have enough mana for his weapon (3) and his Hero Power (4).
You have to play Water Elemental and 1-2 taunts on turn 5 to win this game.
Your ideal turns will look somewhat like this:
Turn 1: Coin and Acidic Swamp Ooze or Frostbolt.
Turn 2: Taunts or Frostbolt.
Turn 3: Single taunts will not change a thing because of Hateful Strike. Instead: Frostbolt or Duplicate. If you have no taunts on your board, it will copy Acidic Swamp Ooze!
Turn 4: 1-2 taunts or Frostbolt.
Turn 5: Water Elemental and Mirror Image or Goldshire Footman.
Turn 6+: Any taunt.

Grobbulus
http://www.icy-veins.com/hearthstone/grobbulus-guide-for-the-curse-of-naxxramas

Grobbulus' Hero Power deals 2 damage to all of your characters and summons 2/2 Slimes for each of your minions that dies to his Hero Power.
Plan your turns with Grobbulus' Hero Power in mind: Losing your minions to trading is better than leaving a minion with less than 3 HP on the board, thus spawning a Slime for Grobbulus.
This fight can be quite annoying depending on the number of Mutating Injections, Spectral Knights and Heroic Strikes Grobbulus draws.

F2P Priest (0 Dust)
Difficulty: hard (may take more than 10 tries)
Inspiration: http://www.hearthhead.com/deck=67636/0-dust-heroic-grobbulus-killer

2x Holy Smite
2x Mind Vision
2x Northshire Cleric
2x Power Word: Shield
2x Bluegill Warrior
2x Divine Spirit
2x Shadow Word: Pain
2x Deathlord
2x Shadow Word: Death
2x Nerubian Egg
2x Sen'jin Shieldmasta
2x Darkscale Healer
2x Gurubashi Berserker
2x Holy Nova
2x Sludge Belcher

Mulligan for Northshire Cleric, Holy Smite and Nerubian Egg.
Having a Nerubian on turn 3 will allow you to kill Dancing Swords easily. The 2/2 Slime+card draw is better than the 4/4 Sword.
Buff Deathlord's HP, put a Gurubashi Berserker next to it and keep both alive using Holy Novas and Darkscale Healers.
Try to copy a Mutating Injection using Mind Vision and buff Deathlord.


---

Gluth
http://www.icy-veins.com/hearthstone/gluth-guide-for-the-curse-of-naxxramas

Gluth's Hero Power will reduce the HP of all your minions to 1, so it will be best to use minions with low health.
Kill Zombie Chows specifically to replenish your health. Rule of thumb: If they are alive for 3 turns, their deathrattle will no longer be an advantage. Try to use the deathrattles of Unstable Ghoul, Abomination and Necroknight to kill them.
You absolutely need to destroy Gluth's weapons. Hope that 2 of the 4 are at the bottom of Gluth's deck, otherwise it will be hard to sustain the damage.
Do not play to many minions at once, because of Abomination and Unstable Ghoul. Your minions should be able to deal 4 damage to kill Abominations.
Both your hands will be empty pretty soon, once you survived the first 5-6 six rounds. It then will be pure topdeck luck to beat Gluth.

F2P Paladin (0 Dust)
Difficulty: medium (may take up to 10 tries, but the fights will last quite long)
Source: http://www.hearthhead.com/deck=67761/0-dust-heroic-gluth-killer

2x Blessing of Might
2x Goldshire Footman
2x Hand of Protection
2x Humility
2x Voodoo Doctor
2x Acidic Swamp Ooze
2x Holy Light
2x Ironfur Grizzly
2x Magma Rager
2x Wolfrider
2x Blessing of Kings
2x Consecration
2x Hammer or Wrath
2x Truesilver Champion
2x Guardian of Kings

Mulligan for both Acidic Swamp Oozes.
Use Humility on Necroknight to disable the biggest threat. Then kill it as soon as its deathrattle will destroy Spectral Knight and Spiteful Smith.
Always protect Magma Rager with a taunt.


---

Thaddius

Thaddius' Hero Power will always switch health and attack values of all minions on the start of his turn. You can use damage against Thaddius' minions to weaken their attack next turn.
You need a perfect starting hand to kill Feugen & Stalagg as soon as possible and then the right means to clear the board. It could take some tries.
Thaddius has a lot of 2-/3-damage spells which will make it hard to establish board control. But Thaddius will also deliberately waste Lightning Storm on single minions, if he otherwise would lose minions.

F2P Priest (0 Dust)
Difficulty: medium (may take up to 10 tries)
Inspiration: http://www.icy-veins.com/hearthstone/thaddius-guide-for-the-curse-of-naxxramas

2x Goldshire Footman
2x Holy Smite
2x Power Word: Shield
2x Zombie Chow
2x Nerubian Egg
2x Shadow Word: Pain
2x Dark Cultist
1x Deathlord
2x Ironfur Grizzly
2x Shadow Word: Death
1x Raid Leader
2x Chillwind Yeti
Feugen&Stalagg
2x Holy Nova
2x Sludge Belcher
1x Stormwind Champion
1x Kel'Thuzad

Mulligan for Goldshire Footman, Holy Smite, Zombie Chow, Nerubian Egg and Shadow Word: Death.
After killing Feugen and Stalagg asap you have to keep minions on the board. Board control is the only way to win this fight.
In this fight heals and health buffs actually are attack buffs. If you do not heal a damaged minion, because of the swapping its stats will be reduced forever.
Buffing your minions with Raid Leader or Stormwind Champion will result in a bug: Each time stats are switched your minions will gain additional +1 stats. Reaching turn 8 with Stormwind Champion on your board means, you are winning.
Because Feugen and Stalagg already are on the board, playing your own versions will give you the chance on your own 1 or 2 versions of Thaddius.
Having Kel'Thuzad next to a taunt will seal the game as well.


F2P Warlock (0 Dust)
Difficulty: medium (may take up to 10 tries)
Inspiration: http://www.hearthhead.com/deck=67929/0-dust-heroic-thaddius-killer

2x Corruption
2x Mortal Coil
2x Soulfire
2x Voidwalker
2x Zombie Chow
2x Nerubian Egg
2x River Crocolisk
2x Unstable Ghoul
2x Drain Life
2x Shadow Bolt
2x Chillwind Yeti
1x Deathlord
Feugen&Stalagg
2x Sludge Belcher
2x Stormwind Champion
1x Kel'Thuzad

Mulligan for Corruption, Mortal Coil, Soulfire, Voidwalker, Zombie Chow and Nerubian Egg to kill Feugen and Stalagg asap.
After killing Feugen and Stalagg asap you have to keep minions on the board. Board control is the only way to win this fight.
Buffing your minions with Stormwind Champion will result in a bug: Each time stats are switched your minions will gain additional +1/+1. Reaching turn 8 with Stormwind Champion on your board means, you are winning.
Because Feugen and Stalagg already are on the board, playing your own versions will give you the chance on your own 1 or 2 versions of Thaddius.
Having Kel'Thuzad next to a taunt will seal the game as well.
 

Cheerio,

Bob

These are the F2P decks I beat the Heroic Construct Quarter with.

 

 

 

Neither your Priest nor Warlock decks will work vs Thaddius.  You don't even get Stalagg or Feugen until you beat him. You also don't get Dark Cultist until you complete the priest challenge, which I'm assuming also unlocks once you beat him.

 

Any other tips, please??

My guide is intended to work in Heroic mode. I assume, everyone, who wants to beat Heroic mode, already has beaten all bosses in Normal.

For Thaddius in Normal I suggest you just leave the missing cards out and fill the gaps with Raid Leader, Stormwind Champion and Deathlord respectively. If you stick to the advice in my guide, you will certainly beat Thaddius in Normal mode in just a few tries.

 

Cheerio,

Bob

the suggested freeze mage deck to defeat grobbulus contains "mad scientist", but to have this card you need to defeat grobbulus before...that's a paradox :D

Ummm.... quick question.  Isn't Jeeves an auto-win against this?  His ability forces each player to draw to 3 cards... Patchwerk has no deck... he'd draw himself to fatigue death the turn Jeeves drops!

OK, so I tried this and it's not QUITE that awesome.  Since he has zero cards in hand, it auto triggers three draws.  As I had already hit him with a Coldlight Oracle, it was 3, 4, and 5 damage... and it seriously finished him!

Having such a ridiculously hard time with Grobbulus. I'm getting closest with mage, but it's so reliant on top-decking exactly what I need.

Do you play heroic or normal? I had some success with Patron warrior (pre-nerf though). Also, you can try ramp druid.

I think I discovered a bug with the AI of Heroic Patchwerk. He refuses to kill Mistress of Mixtures, so if you give one taunt with Sunfury Protector or Defender of Argus he just passes the turn for the rest of the game.

 

It's super cheesy, but an easy way to beat him if anyone has trouble.

Thanks for sharing. I'll definitely look into it.

      Blizzard posted changes to game mechanics that will be implemented with with the Boomsday Project 12.0 patch.
      Highlights
      Ghostly Charger will no longer have the Beast tag. Ixlid, Fungal Lord is losing the Elemental tag. Shifter Zerus, Molten Blade, and Shifting Scroll will no longer keep any enchantments when they transform. Voodoo Doll's curse will be broken if you transform the minion that's already been cursed by Voodoo Doll. The transformed (formerly cursed) minion will not be killed when Voodoo Doll dies. Shadowboxer will be updated to deal 1 damage to a random enemy, whenever a minion is healed. Players will be able to disenchant the card for its full Arcane Dust value for two weeks after 12.0 goes live. Blizzard (Source)
      Dr. Boom’s bringing more than just mayhem to the Netherstorm. The 12.0 update will also come with several rule changes to Hearthstone’s gameplay. Read on to learn about another minion Type update, the copy a card rule change and the transform rule change.
      More Minion Type Changes
      There was a ton of feedback following the last minion Type update we posted, and after reviewing all of it, we realized that there were a couple more minions that needed changing. Here are our decisions following the full review of your feedback.
      Ghostly Charger

      We made a decision that, at least by default, spectral/undead/ghost/spirit versions of animals are not considered Beasts in Hearthstone. There are quite a lot of these sort of cards, most of which are already not Beasts, and changing them would have extensive balance implications.
      Ghostly Charger is one of those cards. Clearly a ghost in both its name and art, its Beast tag has also not been relevant in any significantly used interaction. As a result, we’re planning to remove the Beast tag in a future update.
      In the much rarer case of spectral/undead/ghost/spirit versions of Dragons, Murlocs, Pirates, and Elementals, they will still remain their Type. There aren’t a whole lot of these cards, but there are a few, and they’re already consistently their type. Examples of these are Ghost Light Angler, Cursed Castaway, Bone Drake.
      Ixlid, Fungal Lord

      World of Warcraft uses a looser definition of Elemental than what we decided to standardize on for Hearthstone. In Hearthstone, an elemental is something that has been brought to life by being inhabited by an elemental spirit, but is otherwise not alive. These are easy to recognize: a Fire Elemental looks like a living creature made out of fire; A Water Elemental looks like a living creature made out of water.
      One of the biggest outliers to this definition are plant creatures. There are a ton of minions in Hearthstone that are some sort of plant. We’ve decided that these do not count as Elementals in Hearthstone. Examples of these include The Voraxx, Fen Creeper, Biteweed, Vilespine Slayer, Rotten Applebaum.
      Ixlid, Fungal Lord, is by this definition, a plant creature. Although we’re committed to consistency, there are also other criteria that we consider when changing card Types. One of them is how often a card’s current Type matters when it comes to interacting with other cards. Ixlid’s Elemental tag is not significantly used in current decks, so we’ve decided to remove it in a future update.
      We also looked at the following minions but decided against making any changes. We’ve included our thought process as to how we came to our decisions with these cards.
      Kindly Grandmother
      Kindly Grandmother/Big Bad Wolf looks like a Worgen (which are not considered Beasts) but is actually some other sort of wolf-like creature that is a Beast. The Beast tag is also extremely relevant to its gameplay, and defines most of the card’s intended usage. With this in mind, we will not be changing Kindly Grandmother’s/Big Bad Wolf’s Type. In the future, we’ll be more careful to make the art clear when it comes to Worgen or similar races.
      Arcane Giant  & Arcane Golem
      On top of Elementals and plant creatures, there’s another category of things that have been brought to life via magical animation. These are creatures like War Golem, Arcane Giant, and Avian Watcher—which are not Elementals.
      Arcane Giant, Arcane Golem, and The Curator are all examples of another sort of creature collectively referred to as Arcane Golems. These mechanical constructs utilize arcane energy as a power source, with The Curator being a Mech Type as part of his character in the One Night in Karazhan Adventure. This is actually subtly different from something like War Golem, which is carved from stone and then magically animated. While the “golem” definition refers to something that has been magically animated and is therefore neither a Mech nor Elemental, both Arcane Giant and Arcane Golem’s card art don’t clearly show them to be one or the other. Since the correct type for these creatures is so unclear, we will be leaving them unchanged for now, but would love to hear what you think.
      Bogshaper
      Bogshaper seems to be the same type of creature as Ixlid or Fen Creeper, and that would logically lead to removal of its Elemental tag. However, as mentioned above, we look at more than just the fantasy of a card when determining if it needs a Type change. While Bogshaper’s fantasy criteria checkbox is filled, it’s currently heavily utilized in the meta, and features in many decks, including that of the 2018 Summer Champion, Bunnyhoppor.
      We are holding off on changing Bogshaper's Type for now, but would love to hear what the community thinks we should do in this case. We’re also considering making this sort of change when a card rotates to Wild.
      Copy A Card Rule Change

      Card copies currently only retain enchantments when both the original card and its copy are in play—think Molten Reflection. In Update 12.0, this rule will be updated to match the one regarding enchantments being retained when a card transitions zones.
      Zones in Hearthstone are defined as areas where cards are hosted: your deck, your hand, in play, and in the graveyard. In Hearthstone, there is a general forward-moving flow through zones. Whenever a card moves forward in that flow (Deck -> Hand, Hand -> Play, Deck -> Play), it retains enchantments. If a card moves backwards in zones (Play -> Hand, Hand -> Deck, Play -> Deck, Play/Hand/Deck -> Graveyard and Graveyard -> Play/Hand/Deck), it loses enchantments.
      With this update, card copies will retain enchantments in the following scenarios.
      Cards that are resurrected currently do not and will continue not to retain any enchantments, unless specifically stated otherwise. If you copy a card from a deck to a deck, the copy retains enchantments. (eg. Archbishop Benedictus) If you copy a card from a hand to a hand, the copy retains enchantments. (eg. Mind Vision) If you copy a card from play to play, the copy retains enchantments. (eg. Molten Reflection) If you copy a card from a deck to a hand, the copy retains enchantments. (eg. Thoughtsteal) If you copy a card from a deck to play, the copy retains enchantments. (eg. Mindgames) If you copy a card from hand to play, the copy retains enchantments. (eg. Kobold Illusionist) Transform Rule Change
      When transformed, a Hearthstone card typically loses all of its enchantment. Most cards in game already obey this rule. However, there are four cards that we are changing to keep in line with the rule, as part of this consistency pass.

      Shifter Zerus, Molten Blade, and Shifting Scroll all transform in your hand at the start of every turn. Following the 12.0 update, they will no longer keep any enchantments when they transform. This includes things like hand buffs and Emperor Thaurissan mana-cost discounts.

      The impact on Voodoo Doll is a little different with the update. If you transform the minion that’s already been cursed by Voodoo Doll, the curse will be broken, and the transformed (and formerly cursed) minion will not be killed when Voodoo Doll dies. Silencing the cursed minion will also break the curse, in addition to silencing the Voodoo Doll.
      Shadowboxer Update

      Since the creation of the Lifesteal keyword, Shadowboxer has been a high risk card, in that it can trigger off of itself and deal up to 30 damage in one turn if you ever give it Lifesteal. Because of this, we have changed it to: Whenever a minion is healed, deal 1 damage to a random enemy.
      Once Shadowboxer's card change is live with Update 12.0, players will be able to disenchant it for its full Arcane Dust value for two weeks.
      These are all the changes that you’ll see come into effect with Update 12.0, in line with our commitment to consistency within the game. Let us know what you think in the comments below, or via Facebook and Twitter!

      Will these three new Treant cards see play in the meta? Or will they come up short like the hand-size cards from The Witchwood?
       
      Three new Treant-themed cards were revealed today by PCGamer:
       

       
      First up we have Dendrologist. The floor on this card is solid, as a 2 Mana 2/3 is passable in a pinch. The ceiling on Dendrologist is higher than you might think, as his Battlecry is quite strong. Druid might have more high-quality spells than any other class in the game (Wild Growth, Nourish, Ultimate Infestation, Branching Paths, Naturalize, and Savage Roar to name a few), which leads me to believe that Dendrologist will be a powerhouse if Druid gets sufficient Treant support in this expansion.
       

       
      3 Mana for 4/4 worth of stats is already a great deal on its own, and the added Treant synergy puts this card over the top. The fact that this card creates two bodies makes it even better in aggro decks that look to go wide and finish with cards like Fungalmancer. This is a very reasonable card to curve into on turn 3, and it hints that the Treant deck will likely be quite aggressive.
       

       
      Finally we get Mulchmuncher, a big fat Mech with Rush and a dangerously tempting Mana reduction effect. We know from experience with Corridor Creeper and Giant cards how strong it can be to play big Minions for low amounts of Mana, but it won't be that easy to reduce Mulchmuncher's cost. If the Mana Treants from Living Mana count as Treants for this card, then I can easily see Mulchmuncher as finisher in an aggressive Treant decks.
      Will these new Treant cards turn Force of Nature and Witchwood Apple into playable cards? Or do you think the Treant cards will fall flat like the hand-size cards from The Witchwood? Let us know in the comment section, and be sure to check out our Boomsday Hub for more spoilers from the upcoming expansion.

      The latest Hearthside Chat with Peter Whalen revealed Supercollider, Flobbidinous Floop, and Whizbang the Wonderful from The Boomsday Project.
       
      In the latest Hearthside Chat, Senior Game Designer Peter Whalen explained some of the themes (science) and inspirations (more science) for The Boomsday Project. In doing so, he spoiled three new incredibly exciting cards. If you're interested in watching the video (which is just 4:59 seconds long), you can do so right here:
       
       
      Card Reveals
       

       
      This card gets an "A" for flavor, as I don't think its possible to come up with a better design for a card called "Supercollider" in a science-themed set.
      This Warrior weapon has the potential to be a 2 or 3 for 1, as it can set up trades quite easily if you attack your opponent's largest minion with it. However, attacking your opponent's largest minion means you will also be dealing plenty of face damage to yourself, making high amounts of armor gain a requirement for putting this card in your deck. For that reason, Supercollider plays excellently with Baku the Mooneater, and I expect it to see play in Odd Warrior decks.
       

       
      Next up is another card with an excellent name, Flobbidinous Floop. This guy provides a Faceless Manipulator-style effect for Druid decks for just 4 Mana, which will almost certainly make him a combo piece in a variety of Druid decks. Between Innervate, Twig of the World Tree, and Biology Project, there will almost certainly a few new OTKs with Flobbidinous Floop. He can also be used in Big Druid decks one turn after playing a huge minion, such as Ysera, Hadronox, or The Lich King, to become a 3/4 copy of a card with a powerful effect. Expect to see plenty of Flobbidinious Floop in the new meta!
       

       
      Next we get Whizbang the Wonderful, which is one of the most unique and exciting cards in the history of Hearthstone. What does he do? Let me show you:
       

       
      Whizbang the Wonderful replaces your entire deck. He replaces your hero, and he names your new deck "Whizbang is Wonderful". When you enter a game with this deck, you will be randomly handed 1 of 18 recent deck recipes by Blizzard at the start of the game.
      Will Whizbang be competitively viable? Almost certainly not, but I think that question is almost entirely missing the point. By adding Whizbang to the game, Blizzard has offered new players a way to access 18 different for just 1600 dust! Though its unlikely these 18 premade decks will be 100% meta optimal, they will almost certainly be viable enough for newer players to climb the earlier ranks while playing a wide variety of decks and learning new cards. This is the closest thing that Blizzard will probably ever do to selling pre-constructed decks (something that many other cards games do), which in my eyes is a major step forward. Will tryhards be disappointed when they open Whizbang? Probably. But not every Legendary minion needs to be a home run for the hardcore audience. Whizbang is the new player's best friend, and will surely add much more joy to the game of Hearthstone than he takes away.
      What do you think about today's spoilers? Will Supercollider see play? Can you find any new OTKs with Flobbidinous Floop? And are you as excited about Whizbang the Wonderful as I am? Let us know in the comments what you think about these new cards, and be sure to check out our Boomsday Hub for more spoilers from the upcoming expansion.

      A callback to Annoy-o-Tron, this new Mech card could be a serious player in the meta.
       
      Episode 2 of "Enter Boom Labs" has revealed another new Magnetic card from The Boomsday Project, called Annoy-o-Module:
       

       
      A callback to Annoy-o-Tron, this guy gains Magnetic and 1/2 worth of stats for just 2 Mana! The stats and keywords this card instantly adds to another Mech seem quite strong when you compare it to Blessing of Kings, which adds 2 more Attack to a minion but does not add Divine Shield and Taunt. This card isn't awful when played on it's own, and it plays well in a deck with Corpsetaker. Annoy-o-Module checks enough for boxes for me, and I full expect it to see play in the upcoming meta.
      Episode 2 of "Enter Boom Labs" is short but sweet, and you can watch the full video right here:
       
       
      Do you think Annoy-o-Module impact the game as much as Annoy-o-Tron did? Let us know in the comment section, and be sure to check out our Boomsday Hub for more spoilers from the upcoming expansion.

      Use Mini-Rag to destroy enemy minions and level up your"Wow!" emote in this week's Tavern Brawl.
       
      In celebration of The Midsummer Fire Festival, this week's Tavern Brawl is all about Ragnaros, Lightlord. Well, Mini-Rag to be more specific:
       

       
      A 2/3 Ragnaros with Immune will start the game on one side of the board. At the end of each turn, Mini-Rag will deal 1 damage to a random target on the other side of the board for each Attack he has, then swap to the other side of the board. Each time he kills an enemy minion he will gain 1 Attack, growing in power as the game progresses.
       

       
      Due to the sudden pressure that Mini-Rag applies to both players, I highly recommend playing an Aggro deck. I used Odd Rogue in my first game to take down an Odd Hunter. You could also play an anti-aggro deck to try and counter all the aggro decks running around, but be sure to play some self-healing such as Branching Paths or Healing Rain.
       

       
      The Tavern Brawl will track how many minion kills that Mini-Rag racks up. After 8, 30, and 60 Minion kills, you will level up the fireworks in your "Wow!" emote. This is a returning Tavern Brawl from last year's festival, and your running total of Mini-Rag kills from last year's festival carries over to this year. Happy hunting!
