‘Temple of Orsis’ Heroic FTP Deck Lists for ‘Hearthstone’ League of Explorers Adventure

TouchArcade Rating:

When League of Explorers (Free) was announced at Blizzcon this year, no one was expecting to see a release within the month of November, much less within a week of the announcement. Even the grand master TommyJ was thrown a little off his game, but I am here to tell you, it didn’t take long before he managed to put together a very cheap deck to tackle the first set of heroic encounters.

We have his first set of lists for your consumption, but remember you may have to end up spending a little dust to make these lists. Even though all the cards aren’t immediately given to you after getting a class to level 10, the budget TommyJ limits himself to is well within the limits of any active player even if you don’t buy card packs.

Zinaar
Heroic Zinaar Priest Deck

  • Mind Vision x2
  • Power Word: Shield x2
  • Elven Archer x2
  • Grimscale Oracle x2
  • Murloc Raider x2
  • Northshire Cleric x2
  • Voodoo Doctor x2
  • Divine Spirit x2
  • Shadow Word: Pain x2
  • Murloc Tidehunter x2
  • Shadow Word: Death x2
  • Holy Nova x2
  • Frostwolf Warlord x2
  • Gurubashi Berserker x2
  • Stormwind Champion x2

Just like any very barebones list, TommyJ has recommendations for cards to add if you happen to have them and cards to drop for them. He suggests Inner Fire, Light Bomb, and Velen’s Chosen as well as maybe a few silences like Ironbeak Owl. The first cards he would drop are Grimscale Oracle and Northshire Cleric. His mulligan strategy is a very basic “get cards you can play early" which is very much the general theme of this deck, early cards to help mitigate his ramping mana gains.

Heroic Sun Raider Phaerix Priest Deck

  • Silence x2
  • Inner Fire x2
  • Power Word: Shield x2
  • Goldshire Footman x2
  • Murloc Raider x2
  • Voodoo Doctor x2
  • Divine Spirit x2
  • Shadow Word: Pain x2
  • Acidic Swamp Ooze x2
  • Frostwolf Grunt x2
  • Murloc Tidehunter x2
  • Shadow Word: Death x2
  • Holy Nova x2
  • Frostwolf Warlord x2
  • Gurubashi Berserker x2

Buff Cards like Velen’s Chosen are again a suggested swap in and he adds that any high value minions like Piloted Shredder work well here also. The Murloc cards and Frostwolf Grunt would be first on the chopping block. Mulligan strategy is a little more refined here with as much of Silence, Shadow Word: Pain, or any buffs as you can possibly get early on.

TempleEscape
Heroic Temple Escape Mage Deck

  • Mirror Image x2
  • Goldshire Footman x2
  • Voodoo Doctor x2
  • Frostbolt x2
  • Frostwolf Grunt x2
  • Forgotten Torch x2
  • Frost Nova x2
  • Ironfur Grizzly x2
  • Silverback Patriarch x2
  • Polymorph x2
  • Sen’jin Shieldmasta x2
  • Water Elemental x2
  • Booty Bay Bodyguard x2
  • Lord of the Arena x2
  • Flamestrike x2

As you might expect from an encounter that requires you to survive rather than be aggressive, a control mage is a pretty perfect fit. Suggested add ons include cheap freezes like Ice Lance or cheap taunts like Annoy-o-Tron and Deathlord. First to drop would be Forgotten Torch, Flamestrike, Lord of the Arena and Water Elemental. This encounter is another in a line of very recently added encounters that are very innovative and tons of fun. I’ll leave you here with the last of TommyJ’s videos as he puts the last stage of The Temple of Orsis wing to rest with his amazingly affordable decks.
