Strategy[edit | edit source]

Godfrey plays a Deathrattle themed Hunter deck, designed to take advantage of Darius's Hero Power. He has an opening card that reduces the cost of his cards by 3, allowing him to get a big jump on you. He also starts at three mana. A lot of his minions, like Acolyte of Pain or Gahz'rilla, get an advantage when taking damage, so it's best to try and kill them in one turn or as few hits as possible. Even though it may seem attractive to chip away at his Bittertide Hydra to get a lot of damage on him, the Hydra can still hit for large amounts of damage, so it too should be killed quickly. You want to have many minions with Rush or other high offensive capabilities. You can usually get decent damage on him mid game but he starts swarming later which can cause a very big problem.

His Hero Power can clear off up to three minions at once, so it's more advantageous to keep a few healthy minions than multiple damaged ones. You can also use your cannons to deliberately separate your minions so they are not subject to splash damage. Bear in mind that his Hero Power cannot kill a full-health Grim Patron in one shot, so positioning a Grim Patron next to a minion likely to be targeted by that Hero Power can leave you with little net loss in field advantage.
