Strategy[edit | edit source]

This whole fight is about your new hero power, +2/+2 for 0 mana is a huge boost, the only catch is that you are forced to use it each turn (unless there are no possible targets on the board) and each minion can only be affected by it once. Playing at least one minion each turn solves that problem, but be wary of her 2 Blood Essence spells, which turn 2 minions in your hand to spells.

Blood Queen runs 11 demons(+summoned imps) and 6 non-demons as well as 2 Imp-losions and 4 Demonwraths, so countering her with a demon-zoolock with addition of cards such as Light's Champion and Sacrificial Pact is one idea.

Generally any zoo deck will work here. You should also consider adding some cards that benefits from being buffed such as: Rat Pack, Meanstreet Marshal, Dragon Egg, Runic Egg, Echoing Ooze, Nerubian Egg, Devilsaur Egg, Stoneskin Gargoyle, Meat Wagon or any minion with Charge, Lifesteal, Windfury, or Taunt

Additionally since you are going to be using hero power every turn any Inspire cards have a higher value here as well as Frost Giant and Poisoned Blade.

A card that will continously generate minions each round such as Moroes or Hogger can be invaluble here, as long as the player can keep their health up for long enough before Lana'thel's spells and the Despicable Dreadlord can overwhelm the player. Moroes in particular can be incredibly powerful in this fight as of together with the fact that he is stealthed, the stewards that he spawns will often have a lower priority than the player itself and make for an excellent candidate to bite together with Moroes himself.
