Hearthstone: Curse of Naxxramas, Grand Widow Faerlina (Heroic)

Hello everybody, Geek Generation here.

It turns out that Heroic bosses has 50% more health than players, which makes racing with small creatures not very viable. Aside from the health boost, Heroic Grand Widow Faerlina’s power costs only 1 mana, which makes it spammable nearly every other turn, starting from turn 1. A turn 1 Leper Gnome isn’t going to do much against Heroic Faerlina.

Faerlina’s power scales off the number of cards in your hand, so having large hand size is a bad strategy. This causes a dichotomy where you have to unload the cards in your hand quickly to neutralize Faerlina’s power, but early low costing drops with little health is not going to work because Faerlina’s power goes off at turn 1, usually killing most if not all of your early minion drops.

I decided to go with Hunter, as i could stack up on Secrets, which are basically board control cards that i do not have to keep in my hand. After that it was only a matter of filling the rest of the deck with minions that had good attack/health efficiency for their mana cost.

2 x Hunter’s Mark
2 x Arcane Shot
2 x Explosive Trap
2 x Misdirection
2 x Snipe
1 x Eaglehorn Bow
2 x Animal Companion
2 x Deadly Shot
2 x Kill Command
2 x Multi-Shot
1 x Explosive Shot

1 x Ironbeak Owl
2 x Earthen Ring Farseer
2 x Ironfur Grizzly
2 x Chillwind Yeti
2 x Defender of Argus
1 x Savannah Highmane

Heroic Faerlina’s most dangerous cards are the Worshippers. The Worshippers give Faerlina +3 attack as long as they remain alive. This gives Faerlina very good board control and very strong damage against you as long as she has two or more Worshippers in play. Worshippers must be killed on sight if you’re to prevail against Faerlina.

In the end, it was a matter of luck to win against Heroic Faerlina. I had to draw my one and only Eaglehorn Bow early, fuel it with Secrets, and had to be lucky enough that Faerlina didn’t draw the cards to burst down my last 6 life.

Geek Generation out.
