The strategy of this fight is very simple, with Archaedas' deck offering very few roadblocks aside from the summoning of statues.

The important thing here is simply to focus 100% on board control, clearing out your opponent's board completely on every turn. To help you do this, this deck plays a decent amount of 2/1 minions that you can play on turn 1 to begin controlling the 0/2 statues.

The deck also features a few other important cards to help you win easily. Frostwolf Warlord is a great card in this fight and can often be played out as a 10/10 on turn 5 due to the constant spawning of statues. Buff cards like Shattered Sun Cleric and Stormwind Champion are great to help you to get some use out of the statues that are spawned, while Shadow Word: Pain and Holy Nova are both very effective against the low attack, 2-health minions that the boss plays.
