Table of Contents

Heigan the Unclean is the second boss of the Plague Quarter, the second wing of the Curse of Naxxramas. Most of the information in this guide is aimed at Heroic mode, because the Normal mode of the boss can be defeated using basic decks (such as the ones we have here on Icy Veins).

While most of the information here is mostly aimed at Heroic mode, it will also greatly help you for Normal mode.

We put up a video on Youtube to show you how to defeat Heigan.


Strategy and Deck Building

The difficulty of the Heroic mode comes from Heigan's Hero Power and immediate board presence, as he starts with a Voidcaller already on the board. This puts you under a great deal of pressure and makes it rather difficult to establish early board control.

When building a deck to beat Heigan, you should keep Eruption in mind and avoid playing minions that will cause card disadvantage when taken out by his Hero Power. Generally, you can easily counter the entire mechanic by buffing up a Stoneskin Gargoyle and soaking up all the damage. Nerubian Egg is another excellent counter card for Eruption.

To help you beat Heigan, we created the three decks presented below. You can also get some inspiration from them to create decks for other classes.
