Four Horsemen Warlock

Tips and Tricks

In order to be able to damage and kill Baron Rivendare (the main horseman), thus defeating the encounter, the other 3 horsemen (present on the board as 1/7 minions from the start of the fight) must be killed first.

The Warlock deck that you are given has a lot of damage-dealing spells (such as Soulfire, Demonfire, and Drain Life), as well as Doomguards that can also deal a lot of damage quickly. It is important to kill off the 3 horsemen that are on the board as quickly as possible, before Rivendare has time to buff them. Simply use any of the cards you draw (and do not be afraid to use your Hero Power to draw more cards, unless your health is low) to put as much pressure on these minions as possible.

As you can see, your deck has 6 Voidcallers. You need to make extensive use of them to put more expensive demons on the board, such as Xavius or Lord Jaraxxus. Also, Void callers can put other demons on the board, such as Felguards and Doomguards, without triggering their battlecry.

Rivendare will use Secrets such as Avenge and Redemption to protect the other horsemen, but there is no reliable way to get these secrets to be wasted, since no other minions are played throughout the encounter (Rivendare only has spells in his deck).
