Archaedas Normal Archaedas Heroic

Health, Hero Power, Cards, Etc.

Normal Heroic
Health 30 30 (+15 Armor)
Hero Power Stonesculpting costs 1 Mana, is on auto-cast, and summons a 0/2 Earthen Statue for both players. On Heroic mode, Stonesculpting summons a 0/5 statue for Archaedas, whereas your statue is still 0/2 as in Normal mode.

Strategy and Deck Building

The Archaedas fight is structured around the statues that he summons for both players on each turn. His deck is built to take advantage of his statues with numerous buff effects, while he can also punish you for having many statues on your side of the board through Shattering Spree, which deals damage to you for each statue in play.

To beat this fight you will need to focus heavily on board control and clear out every minion that he plays on his side of the board, including the 0 attack statues which may not seem like a threat. Buff effects and spells that can target and remove friendly minions are of great use here since you can use them to clear your side of the board of annoying statues, clearing the way for you to play more minions and reducing your exposure to Shattering Spree.

On Heroic Mode, the statues all have 5 health instead of 2, and the power of his cards that buff his statues as well as Shattering Spree has been increased. Outside of this, the strategy is much the same, with buffs and board clears being the most helpful things.
