Felstorm Run is a special encounter where the sole aim is to survive.

The encounter can be won when the counter on the other side of the board, which decreases by 1 per turn, reaches 0.
This encounter has no Mulligan phase and you will be forced to keep the cards you initially draw.
The presence of special cards greatly dictates how this fight goes. There are main strategies that can be used to complete this encounter:
- The first strategy involves taking full advantage of the Hero Power to clear the board each turn. This means playing as few cards as possible to maximise the damage you do. To boost your damage in the later stages of the fight, you will often need to rely on to fill up your hand. Once your hand starts to fill up, you can then start playing down some of your Taunt minions to also help control the board and grind down the Turns to Escape counter.
- The second strategy involves being as aggressive as possible from the beginning, making full use of the Taunt minions you have to contest the board. This can be a bit more difficult in the early game, but will provide you with a lot more damage later on. You will often need to use later on in this strategy you help replenish your hand.

Playing it early is generally inadvisable as it will decrease your hand size for and also spend Mana that can be used elsewhere.
