Strategy[edit | edit source]

Belloc Brightblade makes you to play without spells or significantly restrict their use. If it doesn't seem difficult in normal difficulty, on heroic mode Belloc's quick takeover of the board often forces to cast anything, which Belloc also gets, almost never losing the opportunity to spam his side of the board.

In Normal difficulty Belloc is not a very strong midrange paladin, with the support of several Warlock cards. His Lynessa Sunsorrow usually gets 1-2 Seal of Champions (all AI heroes don't cast Pharaoh's Blessing for unknown reason). In general, it's not difficult to clear his board and Belloc is countered by standard proper actions of player and usual passives like First Aid Kit, Glyph of Warding, Rocket Backpacks which are very useful for heroic mode too.

In Heroic mode Belloc almost doesn't have the minions that can be eliminated without further consequences due to large amount of Divine Shields and good mana curve. In so situation it becomes very difficult to play without magic, and if you can't kill at least one minion every turn with your owns or the hero power, you will have to give Belloc your spells. If this is Map of Uldum, Zephrys's Lamp or Sack of Lamps and you are not sure you can win without them, give these treasures at the very beginning of the game - Belloc will get only one card and mana crystal in first case or will immediately spend all the Lamps, getting a very small value with 2-mana minions/spells compared to the later stage of the game. If you have a lot of huge minions in your deck, you can reduce the power of Belloc's hero power with Crook and Flail. If you play an aggro-deck, you can get the opportunity to seize the initiative using Disks of Swiftness. In addition, the entire battle becomes much easier with Anomaly - Whirling Winds.
