Naxxramas Rogue Class Challenge Deck

You’ll be given a special pre-made deck that is mostly minions and just one spell card, Shadowstep. The reward card Anub’ar Ambusher is also in the deck. The deck theme is all about the return effect or putting cards you’ve already played to the board back to your hand, so you can reuse them and their Battlecry effects again. There are also a couple of defensive cards, such as minions that give other minions Taunt and minions whose Battlecry instantly kill enemy minions.

Naxxramas Rogue Class Challenge Strategy

  • Like your own deck, Maexxna has a lot of minions in her arsenal. Make sure you remove as many her minions as you can before you decide to damage her. With too many minions on board, she can easily turn the tide of the battle with her 8/8 Sea Giants.
  • When she does summon a Sea Giant, counter it with your Big Game Hunter. To be safe, mulligan so you can have BGH as one of your starting cards. Return BGH with Shadowstep, Youthful Brewmaster or other similar cards so you can use BGH’s instant-kill Battlecry effect again later.
  • Let your minions defend you by giving them Taunt by Defender of Argus or Sunfury Protector. Make them last longer in the board with minions that have healing Battlecry effects. Or, you can heal your own hero with Priestess of Elune.
  • Maexxna is kind of dumb and often uses her Hero Power (Web Wrap: Return a random enemy minion to your opponent’s hand.) in your favor. This lets you use your Battlecry and Combo minions repeatedly.
