The sole win condition requires you to buff a Young Dragonhawk and kill Arthas before he reaches turn 7. There’s definitely a little luck involved, primarily around if/when he draws an Obliterate. Muligan for the Dragonhawk. If you don’t have it on turn 1, restart the match.

DECKBUILDING: Though not intentionally so, this deck is definitely a budget solution, as it consists of basic and common cards and only 2 rares (which I didn't even use in the game that I won). The only card that’s required is Young Dragonhawk. Fill the rest of your deck with buffs, peppered with other cards that can help keep your Dragonhawk alive. I can’t recommend enough including 2 Blessing of Wisdoms. This can draw you an extra 2 cards per turn, which is a huge boon when most of the cards in the deck are 1-2 mana. I would recommend including as few minions as possible, and definitely not any taunt minions. Taunt minions sound like they'd be great at protecting your Dragonhawk, but once they die, they'll just get in the way on Arthas' side of the board.

MULIGAN: Muligan for the Dragonhawk. If you don’t have it on turn 1, restart the match. A strong starting hand includes cards that keep the Dragonhawk alive, by either buffing health or providing a Divine Shield.


  • Turn 1: Play Young Dragonhawk
  • Turn 2: If Arthas coined out a minion, any card that keeps the Dragonhawk alive is the priority. Best method is to buff health or use Light’s Justice if it’ll kill the minion. In lieu of that, anything that gives Divine Shield or a secret that either protects or revives the Dragonhawk will work. If Arthas didn’t coin out a minion, buff its attack and swing. In either case, if you can also buff with Blessing of Wisdom, then do so. The more cards you draw, the better chance you have to succeed.
  • Turn 3-6: Continue to buff and protect your Dragonhawk. If your Dragonhawk is killed, it is possible to rebuild with another one or a revived one if you had Redemption in play. The deck is filled with buffs after all. Use your judgement based on the current situation whether you want to press on or just restart.
  • Turn 7: If you can’t kill Arthas on this turn, restart.
  • Other Tips:

 Best of luck! For reference, with this deck list, I took home the win on attempt 4.
