Mother Shahraz
1.

Encounter Overview

The boss uses a mix of Demon and sword-themed cards in its deck, such as Bladestorm, Dancing Swords, and Imprisoned Gan'arg. The boss uses the passive Parry and Riposte Hero Power to prevent damage and deflect it back at attackers throughout the game. This ability is active on both players turn allowing the boss to also deflect damage it deals to itself.

For this encounter you will have weapon-themed techs added to your deck, such as Deadly Poison, Kingsbane, and Stolen Steel in addition to some of the Secret, Beast, and Combo cards used in previous encounters. Additionally you will have the 4 Outcasts you have recruited so far, Karnuk, Outcast, Sklibb, Outcast, Shalja, Outcast, and Baduu, Outcast added to your deck after your Mulligan.

Mulligan Strategies

In your mulligan you should look for low-cost early-game cards to help control the board. Kingsbane in particular is a strong keep due to the copies of Deadly Poison present in your deck.

Gameplay Strategies

In order to be sucessful in this encounter, you should focus entirely on controlling the board throughout the game. The Parry and Riposte Hero Power of the boss is extremely powerful and will allow the boss to outvalue you if you begin attacking too soon. With this in mind, simply focus on getting good value trades with your minions to try and build a wide board.

Once you have a wide board, ideally at least 5 minions, you can start attacking the boss directly. You should try to attack with a weak minion first to absorb the reflected damage from Parry and Riposte. Alternatively, minions with more Health than attack like Augmented Porcupine are also great minions to attack with first. After the initial hit has been done, you are free to attack the boss with any other minions you have.
