Welcome back, everyone! I’m neonangel and today we’re going to be facing Blood-Queen Lana’thel. She is the first boss in the second wing of Knights of the Frozen Throne and her special ability is Vampiric Leech. She’s gonna be able to do 3 damage to a minion or to you, and it’s also got Lifesteal along with it. She starts off with Bite of the Blood Queen, which is going to change your Hero power to Vampiric Bite. You’re going to give +2/+2 to another minion – you have to use it every turn, and you can only use it on non Vampires. You’ve also got Blood Essence from her, which is going to replace your minions in your hand. Sleeping Acolyte she starts with and Looming Presence, which we’ve seen on other fights before, which gives her card draw and Armor. The deck that use on this is another deck that has a lot of Commons. It’s still gonna be 1040 Dust, but that’s not too bad, in the grand scheme of things.
The cards that I use, that I especially like, are Dragonhawk Rider and Thrallmar Farseer. The reason I like them so much is because they can’t be killed in one hit of her ability and they’re Windfury, so you can take her down really fast. Other important cards are gonna be the Earthen Ring Farseer and Gadgetzan Socialite. Those are primarily to heal your Windfury minions, or if you can save another minion for a turn, that’s always good to do. So, we’ll go ahead and get started here. When you’re doing your mulligan you always want to have either a 1 or 2-cost card in your hand. It doesn’t really matter what, but you must have one of those in your starting hand, otherwise you should probably restart the fight. The reason being, is because she’s gonna change your Hero Power here right away, and like I said in the beginning, you’ve got to start using that Hero Power every single turn, but you can only use it on non Vampires, so if you don’t use it on your own minions you’ve got to use it on hers, which puts you at a huge disadvantage.
Ummm, so you’ve got to keep putting out your own minions, you know, from the very start, that’s why you want the 1 or 2-cost minions, and just keep buffing them once you put them out. Most of the time I don’t worry about her minions that much, to be honest with you. But if you can take one out, you know, before it gets maybe an unfavorable trade or something, you should probably go ahead and do it. And I could have held on to the Earthen Ring Farseer, but I’m just gonna go ahead and push it. I’m gonna keep the pressure on and get out as much as I possibly can. The Power of the Wild is great to just give your side of the board that final boost right there to push you over the top. And if she’s not able to kill the Thrallmar Farseer this next turn, she’s gonna be dead.
And that right there is going to be win number one. As you can see, that goes really fast once you just keep churning them out there. So I’m gonna go ahead and play through until I’ve won five games for you. Her Blood Essence is really annoying. You want to try and get out your minions as quickly as you can because, so many times, I’ve seen her do back-to-back Blood Essence, and she’ll just wipe out your entire hand if you’re holding on to anything.
But I got the Windfury out there really fast and you can take her down in just no time if you’ve got one of the Windfury minions out there and she can’t kill it. The Gnomeregan Infantry are also great because of Charge, but Taunt, and they’re so big, so they’re hard to get through. Sort of like the Crypt Lords in here as well. They’re a really big wall. Tough for her to get through. She’ll use like a Siphon Soul or something on them. See, sometimes the cards that she gives you from the Blood Essence ends up killing her, so I got Windfury there and was able to put it on the Druid of the Claw. So I was able to finish her off there pretty easily. The Looming Presence can really be frustrating because she gains so much Armor from that. I mean she’s got the Life gain from her ability already, but on top of that, then she gets the Armor, but that’s five wins anyway! I appreciate you taking the time to watch this.
I hope that I’ve given you some good ideas to try out for yourself. As you saw, this deck is not real expensive. I mean, it’s got all Common cards or Basic cards, so you don’t really have to pull out the Legendaries or anything. It’s not that bad of a fight. It’s actually pretty easy. You’ve just got to be smart how you play it. Anyway, I appreciate you watching and I will see you next time. Thanks!.
