It’s been less than 24 hours since the release of Curse of Naxxramas, the first adventure mode of Hearthstone. Thanks to a little help from the internet, I was able to defeat all three bosses on heroic mode. With 45 health and buffed hero abilities, it takes more than your run of the mill constructed deck to beat them. As the game says, it’s necessary to tailor your deck to handle the individual bosses. While I cannot take full credit for these strategies, here are the deck lists I used to conquer heroic Anub’Rekhan, Grand Widow Faerlina and Maexxna.
First, a disclaimer: I don’t have Ragnaros, Alexstrasza or a few other legendaries in my collection. These decks were based around the cards I have to work with – which are pretty much most of them.
I found this warlock deck on Reddit and substituted a second Voidwalker for Ragnaros. If you have Ragnaros, he’ll definitely come in handy. I beat Anub’Rekhan on the second try.
Heroic Grand Widow Faerlina
The idea of the deck is pretty straightforward – keep your hand small. It’s basically a paladin zoo deck without Divine Favor. This deck made quick work of the Grand Widow.
This mage deck took a few tweaks before it worked. It has several cards that you can simply replay after Maexxna bounces them back to your hand.
