Notes[edit | edit source]
- Faerlina's Hero Power selects its targets randomly, much like Arcane Missiles. It can therefore hit Stealthed targets and elusive minions such as Faerie Dragon.
Strategy[edit | edit source]
To reduce the damage of Faerlina's Hero Power, the player should try to use up the cards in their hand as much as they can. Constructing a deck composed of low-cost cards can help with this.
Alternatively, this fight can be thought of as a DPS race - burn her down before her Hero Power overwhelms you.
The popular Zoolock decks work wonderfully against Faerlina. These decks work by playing swarms of low-cost minions and cheap Taunt cards early on to overwhelm your opponent, thus keeping the count of cards in your hand perpetually low. Just remember to include some removal like Soulfire or Shadow Bolt, to deal with Followers, Necroknights, and Dancing Swords should they become a problem. If you find yourself out of cards, use Life Tap.
