Lore[edit | edit source]

Chronomancer Inara is a chronomancer, one who controls time. According to her, she outfoxed the Bronze dragonflight.

From Wowpedia:
The bronze dragonflight are dragons with yellow-bronze scales and can breath superheated sand. During the Ordering of Azeroth, the titan Aman'Thul blessed the wise Nozdormu and his brood with the ability to time travel and mastery of temporal magic. Generally stoic and detached from 'current' events, they are rare to interact with mortals unless they require help in safeguarding the one true timeline. Their nemeses are the Infinite dragonflight, a faction of bronze dragons corrupted by the Old Gods who wish to rewrite the timeline. While the Caverns of Time are the flight's home, Tanaris Desert is their province.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

The main unfair thing she can do is play Astral Portal on turn 1, get a big legendary, and instantly lock out the game. Otherwise, if she doesn't have that card early or doesn't get lucky with it, the rest of the deck is not difficult to deal with.

Don't be intimidated by Archmage's Insight. Even though she can, in theory, instantly kill you with Fireballs off Archmage Antonidas if she pairs it with him, she prefers to use the burn for board control and would rather kill you with her minions. With her other spells, she can get a lot of free cards and advantage but she won't exploit it as well as a human player would.

While the usual strategy of board control applies, keep watch of her mana count. When she gets to 9 mana, do everything in your power to clear out her board, because next turn she will automatically use her Hero Power. Since it uses all her mana, the only other thing she can do is attack with any minions she already has, so if she has nothing she's effectively wasted her extra turn and has reverted to 8 mana.
