Strategy[edit | edit source]

Xur'ios plays a standard mage spell deck. The only thing you have to worry about is the card he draws at the start and you have the advantage of him deciding not to play it. Simply play as normal by building up your board and deal with whatever he throws at you.

If he plays such cards as Bloodmage Thalnos, Loot Hoarder or Gadgetzan Auctioneer, kill them on your turn to prevent effect of his hero power. Otherwise with good draw he can easily cast a lot of 0-cost powerful spells like Cabalist's Tome, Firelands Portal or Power of Creation in one turn what would be fatal for you likely.

Dialogue[edit | edit source]

Before match

Arch-Villain Rafaam
Xur'ios! The craftiest of ethereals. Your magic will be unstable around him.

Introduction

Xur'ios
This encounter was fated. Our... destiny.
A Hunter! Where's your Golden Gun? (vs. Ol' Barkeye)
Hello, Tita- er, Warrior. (vs. Mr. Chu)
vs. Tekahn
Xur'ios
Ooh, a Warlock. I know your kind well.
Tekahn
I have allied with one of your more... powerful kin. Perhaps you've heard of Rafaam?

Chaos does have a purpose.
That one got away from me.
That works for me.
Player draws a spell
I trust that is what you wanted?
It's for your happiness.
Was that what you intended? Hm.

Idle

Xur'ios
Have you come to speak with the Nine?
I see between the galaxies.
I suppose we shall unravel some of the mysteries of time while we wait.
I was not sent here to wait around.
There is much your future holds that remains unseen.

The Darkness
Before the Darkness, there was the Light.
Equip a Legendary weapon
Nice legendary. I'll trade you for some of my more exotic wares.
Quite an exotic weapon you've got your hands on.
Play 9-cost card on turn 9
Hm, another Agent of the Nine perhaps? Interesting...

This is but one end...
