This deck is made to defeat the Heroic boss Maexxna at the lowest (dust) cost possible. Feel free to make adjustments and add rares, epics, and legendaries that you see fit!



Mulligan for: Unleash the Hounds, Starving Buzzard, Tracking and Explosive Trap.

Unique AI cards:

Ability - Web Wrap - 0 mana: Return 2 random enemy minions to your opponent's hand. (This is always used at the start of her turn).

Weaknesses - she mostly uses weak creatures with 1 attack. Floods board quickly (UTH combo). Her ability Web Wrap is strong but can be used to your advantage.

If you get the Explosive Trap early, use it (especially if you have Unleash the Hounds in hand). She starts with two Haunted Creeper's on the board and the secret will fill it up with a lot of weak creatures making the combo (see below) even stronger.

The single most important combo is the 5 mana UTH and Buzzard combo. The board will quickly get overwhelmed by Maexxna's minions and the value you will get for this is astronomical. Use Tracking to draw these two cards.

Since you have the ability to easily flood the board in one turn and she only returns 2 minions per turn her hero power is almost useless. (Since you have a lot of immediate effects, like charge, Web Wrap often times works for you and against her).

Prolong the game (if you have to) by playing secrets.

Kill her big guys (2x Sea Giant and 2x Anub'ar Ambusher) with Hunter's Mark combined with a 1/1 minion/token.

Use the Kill Command and/or attack with a buffed Scavenging Hyena for some nice finishing burst.



Also - if you replace 2x Voodoo Doctor with 2x Houndmaster you have created the deck  to defeat Anub'Rekhan - Heroic (link: http://www.hearthpwn.com/decks/80013-commons-and-basics-only-and-naxx-anubrekhan-heroic).
