Hearthstone: Curse of Naxxramas – The Plague Quarter Opens

Blizzard Entertainment has opened the Plague Quarter for Hearthstone: Curse of Naxxramas. While the first Quarter was free, all remaining Quarters cost $6.99 or 700 Gold. You may also save by purchasing all Quarters for $19.99.


Noth the Plaguebringer

My first encounter was Noth the Plaguebringer. His main Hero Power costs no Mana. It is a passive Hero Power named “Raise Dead”, which puts a 1/1 skeleton on the battlefield for each enemy minion that dies.

He has 3 Secret cards:

  • Duplicate (Creates two copies of a friendly minion card killed and puts them on his hand)
  • Counterspell
  • Ice Block (When your hero is fataly wound prevent it, and become immune this turn — comes back with 1 health)

Noth likes to add the DUPLICATE secret card when he has the Cult Master or Acolyte of Pain in hand, thus securing new cards coming into his hand constantly which can be overwhelming.

My shaman deck wasn’t able to defeat him the first time, but my druid deck got him the second round.

Heigan the Unclean

Heigan has a Warlock deck and his hero power is Eruption: Deal 2 damage to the left-most enemy minion.

His deck consists of:

In the following video, I lost the first match, and won the second match (barely). His deck is very aggressive against poor decks like mine.


Loatheb is pretty brutal with 75 Health in normal mode, and his spore cards. If you use any kill 2 cards, or wipe-like cards you can trigger the spore’s deathrattle which gives 8+ attack to his minions. I was lucky my druid deck had a Flesheating Ghoul and out of the blue it grew to 32 attack which helped me shrink Loatheb’s health enough to eventually win the match. Seems a Priest deck could be useful in this regard too, combined with a Flesheating Ghoul or two.
