King Varian

Encounter Overview

King Varian uses a Rush Warrior deck, consisting of various Rush minions, weapons, and Armor-gain cards like Armor Vendor and Sword and Board. The boss will also use the Scold Hero Power during the fight.

In this encounter, you will be given an Alliance-themed deck, consisting of various basic cards with Alliance artwork in addition to the weapons, Sword of Justice, Training Sword, and Fearbreaker. You will also have the Uncertain Destiny Hero Power for the duration of the fight.


Mulligan Strategies

In your mulligan you should look for low-cost cards like Intrepid Initiate and Lowly Squire in addition to the Training Sword weapon.


Gameplay Strategies

As the boss runs no board clear tools, you should aim to flood the board as quickly as possible to overwhelm it. Additionally, fitting your Uncertain Destiny into as many turns as possible will give you a huge advantage going forward. In particular, you should look for copies of Eviscerate that can be used to both control the board and burst down the boss.
