Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Mirage creates a copy of a random card in the player's hand ("illusion"). This effect lasts until the end of the player's turn.
  • If the player does not play any of the two copies of the illusion, a corrupted card will back to its usual form and none of the player's cards will be discarded.
  • The illusion can discard its second copy.
  • Only one random copy of the illusion discards a card. The other copy can be played as a normal card; however, this will cause the second illusion to disappear at the end of the turn.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

This battle is one of the few ones that is easier on Heroic mode than in Normal. If the player's deck is not filled with high-cost cards, Mirage won't be giving any advantage to the boss by forcing to play a card (like Chaos Gazer does), so it is possible to almost always easily play another card and ignore the corrupt ones.

In Normal mode Oasis's deck has a significant resemblance with Quest Druid and contains several cards of other classes for support and protection. Since it has two copies of BEEEES!!! and Swarm of Locusts, Band of Scarabs may play pretty well. In this case BEEEES!!! will mean the loss of 3 mana, and in the best case - activation of Eternal Tomb. If Swarm of Locusts summons 7 minions, a Beautiful Oasis won't be able to play any other cards except Overflow, which doesn't cancel an easy victory (the exception is Twist - Plague of Madness). Alchemist's Stone and Map of Uldum will also perform well, allowing to minimize losses from Mirage if the player's deck is heavy. Generally, it's advisable to keep the pressure and don't be afraid to completely swarm a board, keeping in mind the boss doesn't have AoE. This will allow not only to win quickly but also will prepare to Gahz'rilla, Cenarius and Colossus of the Moon.

The Heroic deck of Beatutiful Oasis is a weak likeness of Mill Druid from 2014-2015 years. This deck doesn't allow the boss to win, because he will constantly supply the player with resources. Cards received from the boss can be used both as a supplement to the boss damage and as a target for Mirage, protecting more important cards. Due to its AI and the lack of cards for 1-2 mana without a negative effect, Oasis will very rarely conduct unpleasant combinations like King Mukla + Coldlight Oracle.

Since the heroic deck doesn't contain a lot of powerful cards and also lacks of AoE, playing all possible resources wouldn't be a bad tactics.

Lore[edit | edit source]

A Beautiful Oasis is original to Hearthstone. Perhaps the plague of madness destroyed the oasis and created a mirage. Or under plague's influence, the oasis tries to kill travelers and offers them a poisoned water.
