Hearthstone: Heigan the Unclean (Heroic)

Geek Generation reporting on attempt on heroic Heigan the Unclean.

Voidcaller

Heigan the Unclean begins the game with a Voidcaller in play. Voidcaller is the Necromancer’s Cruse of Naxxramas expansion card. This deck show cases how powerful Voidcaller is. But of course, it is always more powerful if it begins in play on turn 1 šŸ˜€ Heigan’s deck has a zooish feel to it as Voidcallers keep replenishing the board with more meat while Eruption combined with minion attack or spell damage clears your side of the board.

Nerubian_Egg

Heigan’s power, Eruption, now deals 3 damage to the left most minion and is free to cast. But the AI is dumb like Maexxna. The power is always activated at the beginning of the turn regardless of the situation on the board; even when it would’ve been beneficial for Heigan to trade minions before playing the hero power. This makes Nerubian Egg very useful against Heigan.

2 x Innervate
2 x Mark of the Wild
2 x Wild Growth
2 x Wrath
2 x Swipe
1 x Nourish
2 x Starfire

2 x Nerubian Egg
2 x Chillwind Yeti
2 x Keeper of the Grove
2 x Druid of the Claw
1 x Loatheb
1 x Sludge Belcher
2 x Boulderfist Ogre
1 x Ancient of Lore
2 x Ancient of War
2 x Ironbark Protector

In the end, it came down to a confluence of lucky factors (again) that allowed me to win. Playing Nerubian Egg is rather important as it represents about the only chance to stop the in-play Voidcaller in the early turns. It also depends on Heigan not having Soulfire on hand too. Overtime, Heigan would’ve been playing efficiently to clear the minions on your board while bringing the minions on his side to low on health. Which makes the situation ripe for a Swipe, which would not have been possible if Heigan had Blood Imps in play.

Mindpocalypse

It’s also important for Heigan to cast Mindpocalypse as it’ll likely benefit you more than him.

If you survive the onslaught, heroic Heigan’s juice will run out like it did on normal mode. Chillwind Yeti smash!

On another note, it appears that Loatheb’s ability doesn’t work. Heigan played Loatheb and my Wild Growth and Mark of the Wild still cost the same.

Geek Generation out.
