Table of Contents

Maexxna is the third and final boss of the Arachnid Quarter, the first 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 Maexxna.


Strategy and Deck Building

When building a deck to beat Maexxna, you will have to deal with her Hero Power and, in Heroic mode, with the initial pressure created by the 2 Haunted Creepers. Since she will keep returning your minions to your hand, you can take advantage of her Hero Power by relying heavily on minions with Battlecry and/or Charge:

  • Novice Engineer and Coldlight Oracle can provide card advantage;
  • Voodoo Doctor and Earthen Ring Farseer can provide healing;
  • Alexstrasza can heal you back to 15 health each turn as well as bring Maexxna from 45 to 15 health;
  • Wild Pyromancer can provide AoE damage should you play a spell heavy deck;
  • etc.

Since you can only have 7 minions on the board at any time, Maexxna can also be easily defeated by allowing her to expand on the board with weak minions and simply outheal the damage with your Battlecry minions.

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