The Puzzles

So what are the Puzzles you need to solve, to get the card back? The basics seem to be that you first start the puzzle by playing certain cards for a class in a certain order, which gives you a special zero mana card, that when played will change your game to a special Puzzle state, which you have to solve.

The Secret Finding Discord has solved 2 puzzles so far that we have a guide for here, the Warrior one and the Rogue one. We also have a guide up for the Druid and Hunter puzzles over here. Doing each puzzle will give you 1 progress on the 4 step achievement that rewards the card back.


Warrior Puzzle

This puzzle was solved by Secret Finding Discord user: MustBeSenpai#7526 Kudos to them for figuring this out!

To solve this puzzle, you have to start a game against the Innkeeper (in "Solo Adventure" then "Practice" and choose normal difficulty). Once in the game get the following cards in your hand and play them in this exact order. You will need 10 mana and at least 6 health worth of minions on board, doesn't matter if friendly or from the opponent. Important to remember that you can ONLY do this in your turn, nothing else. So wait till you have a whole turn to do this without interuption.

Play the following cards, in this order

  1. Minefield
  2. Bulk Up
  3. In Formation
  4. Feat of Strength
  5. Shield of Honor
  6. End Turn

The Second Part

The second part of the Warrior puzzle is also easy enough if you follow these instructions exactly. The basic premise is that you have 3 Quilboar and 3 Orcs on your side of the board plus a Caravan card. You will have to transfer all minions to the opposing side of the board. If you fail to do things properly, a Marauder will appear on the opponent's side of the board and attack and kill your Caravan, resetting the puzzle.

About this Caravan: It is the main engine to this puzzle. Everything to the right side of your Caravan will travel with it to the other side of the board when you hit your Hero Power. So, for every step, drag what minions you need to transfer to the right of the Caravan, and hit Hero Power. They will travel to the opponent's side of the board. Once there, again drag the appropriate minions to the right side of the Caravan and hit Hero Power. The correct minions will then travel back to your side. Keep doing this according to the following list to solve the puzzle.

Do the following steps, in this order:

The steps are color coded. Green is what you bring to the opponent side, orange is what you return to your side with.

  1. Bring 2 Quilboar over & Return with 1 Quilboar
  2. Bring 2 Quilboar over & Return with 1 Quilboar
  3. Bring 2 Orcs over & Return with 1 Orc 1 Quilboar
  4. Bring 2 Orcs over & Return with 1 Quilboar
  5. Bring 2 Quilboar over & Return with 1 Quilboar
  6. Bring 2 Quilboar over & And you win!

The End

Congratulations, you should now have progress on the achievement that will grant the Card back!

The Deck

Rogue Puzzle

This puzzle was solved by Secret Finding Discord user: LynxZh#2455 Kudos to them for figuring this out!

To solve this puzzle, you have to start a game against the Innkeeper (in "Solo Adventure" then "Practice" and choose normal difficulty). Once in the game get the following cards in your hand and play them in this exact order. You will need 12 mana and at least 1 minion on board, doesn't matter if friendly or from the opponent. To get the combo done, you will need to hit at least 2 of the cards with a discount from Efficient Octo-bot. It is easy to hit multiple cards or to hit a few cards multiple times, so the combo can easily take only 7 or 8 mana, therefor it is important to remember that you can ONLY do this in your turn, nothing else. So wait till you have a whole turn to do this combo without interuption and without doing any other moves, even if you have mana for it. We made the mistake of drawing into our last combo piece with one of our draw cards and having enough mana to do the combo still. The Combo failed. So be sure to have 1 turn without anything else in it to do this.

Play the following cards, in this order

  1. Bamboozle
  2. Yoink!
  3. Plagiarize
  4. Coerce
  5. Potion of Illusion
  6. End Turn

The Second Part

The second part of the Rogue puzzle is also easy enough if you follow these instructions exactly. The basic premise is that you have 7 "locks" that you need to set to 4 attack to unlock them. Simply attack into them with the minions on your side the following amount of times to achieve this. I don't think it matters which minions you use or how often. I used all 3 because the attack was going up quite hard and I felt I might damage the "locks" too much. But I doubt it is necessary to do this.

Do the following steps, in this order:

  1. Attack the first minion from the left: 1 Time
  2. Attack the second minion from the left: 2 Times
  3. Attack the third minion from the left: 3 Times
  4. Attack the fourth minion from the left: 0 Times
  5. Attack the fifth minion from the left: 0 Times
  6. Attack the sixth minion from the left: 3 Times
  7. Attack the seventh minion from the left: 2 Times
  8. All the "locks" should now have 4 attack. Hit Hero Power and you win!

The Deck

This is the deck we used to get through this puzzle, but any deck that has the key cards in it and Octo-bot to discount them will be usable, in theory. We aimed to put the key cards in and have draw to find them, as well as Octo-bot and a Penflinger to activate him.
