Strategy[edit | edit source]
Captain Eudora's Hero Power allows you to get a random Golden minion from your current Tavern Tier or lower every four times it is used, complete with the standard reward of Discovering a minion of the next Tavern Tier. The massive power spike that Buried Treasure represents means that players should aim to use the Hero Power every round, and the Golden minions can be used to give direction to your composition. It is even worth using the Hero Power on turn 1, even if you have to forgo keeping a minion on the field to do so (although Murloc Tidehunter and Alleycat should be played and the token sold to use the Hero Power, while Deck Swabbie should be played and sold to use its Battlecry).
A good linear strategy with Eudora is to dig from turn 1, and level aggressively to find a tier 4 minion on turn 4. Even if you do not find a token on turn 1, you can roll for a token, freeze the shop if you find it, and dig on turn 1. You can buy a minion on turn 2 and level on turn 3. Then, on turn 4, you can level again, sell a minion, and then dig for a golden minion. If you never got a token, you will end up on turn 4 with only two minions after you sell the minion you bought on turn 2 (the golden minion, and the minion you discovered). However, there are many great minions on 4 that work very well that early, like Goldgrubber, Herald of Flame, or Security Rover. Additionally, leveling to 3 before your dig gives you a chance to find an early golden tier 3 minion. For example, while the odds are very low, finding a golden Hangry Dragon that early will almost certainly ensure you will not lose a turn until your next dig.
Regardless of what happens, it's always a good idea to find a Tier 4 minion on your first dig. It is almost always better to have a tier 4 minion on turn 4, than to have a tier 3 minion and a Tier 1 or Tier 2 minion you bought in the shop in lieu of leveling. You will also have better shops on your next turns if you level early, since you are already at tier 3.
Then, you can spend the next turn 5 and turn 6 fleshing out your board. Level again on turn 7, and level again on turn 8, remembering to hero power every turn. This will enable you to discover a 6-tier minion very early. Try to look for build-around cards, like Mama Bear or Kalecgos.
As a consistent source of Golden minions, Eudora works very well with Goldgrubber.
