Lavanthor runs a rage deck. He will gain the immediate effects due to his hero power so try to kill his Molten Rock as fast as possible to avoid this effect. But if you have enough healing or armor to survive several Molten Rocks you can play passively for some time and wait or cast spells on the dangerous minions until Lavanthor will drain out his deck.

If you can play aggresively (Rush, Battlecry decks, Emerald Goggles / Robes of Gaudiness / Rocket Backpacks passives, any semi-endless resourses like Grimmer Patron or Bloodreaver Gul'dan etc.), play in this way which gives a good board control too. For example, playing Priest and having the Rocket Backpacks passive, you can easily clear the board by stealing Grim Patron with Shadow Madness and creating your own potent board at the same time.

They sealed away these core hounds out of fear. Unleash them!



Emote Response







From Wowpedia:

Lavanthor is a core hound boss located in Violet Hold.
Cyanigosa in her cold cunning has unleashed the core hound's inferno. The magi imprisoned Lavanthor to stanch the two-headed terror's thirst for blood, and years of isolation have done nothing to improve its temper.
