Strategy and Tips
- The payoff card, Crystal Core, (which will make your minions 5/5 for the rest of the game) is your semi-finisher, so aim to complete it as soon as possible
- Cards like Shadowstep, Youthful Brewmaster, Mimic Pod, Vanish and Sonya Shadowdancer all can be utilized to play the same type of cards for quest completion
- Keep track of your quest progress, it is okay to switch to a new minion to complete the quest is necessary
- Once the quest is completed, you will out value and tempo your opponent and proceed to finish them off or take over the board
- A surprise finish is having 5/5 charge minions like Southsea Deckhand and Stonetusk Boar and bouncing them back for more face damage
- Since you have a lot of cheap drops, it's easy to field minions for board control
- Vicious Scalehide will slow down aggro
- Sonya Shadowdance will provide a lot of gas if you can get in good minion trades
- If you complete your quest, your minions will be bigger than theirs and it is usually over by then
- You have minimal heals besides Vicious Scalehide, so holding them till the quest is completed is another viable option
- Focus on getting the quest completed
- Use Vanish defensively to reset the board if necessary
Key Card Choices
- The Caverns Below: The whole deck is built around this card
- Shadowstep and Youthful Brewmaster: Necessary in quest completion
- Sonya Shadowdancer and Zola the Gorgon: Two more ways to generate the same minion for quest completion
- Vanish: Used defensively to reset the board or aggresively to clear your opponent minions and flood your cheap minions out
