Merry Naxxramas

Blizzard announces first wing of the Curse of Naxxramas expansion for Hearthstone is now available, noting this is free for a limited time. Here's how this works:
The first wing of Curse of Naxxramas™: A Hearthstone™ Adventure has opened! Players can now put their decks to the test against the malevolent undead who roam Azeroth’s most infamous floating necropolis—without spending a single coin. The Arachnid Quarter, the first of the Adventure’s five sinister wings, is now available—free for a limited time—to all Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft™ players who step into the necropolis during the Curse of Naxxramas launch event, taking place now through early September.

“Curse of Naxxramas introduces a whole new way to play Hearthstone”

Curse of Naxxramas pits solo Hearthstone players against a series of iconic, necrotic bosses, each with its own unique powers and cards to command. Heroes will need to draw on all of their wits and deck-building prowess to prevail over Naxxramas’s horrors, earning a total of 30 new cards along the way that can be used in regular play—including a new Legendary card for completing each wing.

“Curse of Naxxramas introduces a whole new way to play Hearthstone,” said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. “Players of all skill levels will find plenty to challenge them within Naxxramas’s haunted corridors—and plenty of new options for their decks with the new cards we’re adding.”

A new wing of Naxxramas will open each week, and access to these four additional wings may be purchased for 700 gold per wing or $6.99 per wing. Players can earn the in-game gold needed to unlock the next wing by completing various quests or emerging victorious from the game’s Arena mode—or they can choose to unlock the next available Naxxramas wing using real money.

Your strategy is based on pure random luck... I tried it, turn 1 she draws rush 2/3 and +1+1 for each death rattle, turn 2 she has combined attack power of 8, far beyond anything you can actually draw on the deck on turn 2. And other variations have been 3 of the guys that give her 3+ attack by turn 4.. yeah! Hero with 9 attack...

Yeah you probably need some luck here. If her hero power wiped my board after turn 2, it's over. Otherwise the strategy was just to build a snowballing minion to take care of everything and clear your hand asap.

It was the only way I could find a way to match her giant characters. By the end my berserker was something like 17-10. She would immediately wipe any other characters off my board. I was relieved that it only took me 2 tries. You absolutely must clear her worshippers. In one game she put out 4 of them in a row. That was gg. Those guys are worse than her hero power.

I'm sure someone will come up with a more consistent way of beating her. I didn't require too many tweaks from my standard warrior rush deck, since it worked on my 2nd try. I'd imagine I would be removing things the 3 and 4 drops for 1/2 drops for some hand clearing consistency.

A zoolock deck might work better with all the discard drops you can put in there.

[Edit]: Found this discussion on the HS forums that seems to have found some consistency with a decklist:

Some of the posts there also won using similar snowball a minion strategy (with priest/druid/warrior). Seems the AI's not good at handling them. But they all admit some luck involved.
