Puzzle 1

Difficulty: 5/5 Mana Crystals

Your opponent is playing Gul’dan, the Warlock. He has seven cards in his hand, and the following minions in play: Cultmaster, Summoning Portal, Ravenholdt Assassin, Flame Imp, and Spellbreaker.

You are playing Anduin Wrynn, the Priest. You have only one card in play, a Shieldbearer that has been silenced. Your hand contains: Auchenai Soulpriest, Inner Fire, Shadow Madness, Power Word: Shield, Reckless Rocketeer, Greater Heal, and Circle of Healing.

It’s turn 10 for you, and you have 5 health remaining. Gul’dan is staring you down with 25 health left. How can you win against this wily Warlock? 

Puzzle 2

Difficulty: 3/5 Mana Crystals

Your opponent is Jaina Proudmoore, the Mage. She has four cards in her hand, and the following minions in play: Sunwalker (with Divine Shield active), a Water Elemental (currently at 3/1), and a 3/3 Ethereal Arcanist.

You are playing Thrall, the Shaman. You have the following minions in play: A Booty Bay Bodyguard (5/1 and frozen by the Water Elemental), a Shieldbearer, a Young Dragonhawk, a Stoneclaw Totem, a Wrath of Air Totem, and a Murloc Warleader.

Taking a look at your cards, your hand contains: Bloodlust, Lightning Bolt, Windfury, Hex, Rockbiter Weapon, Ironbeak Owl, Flametongue Totem, and Lava Burst.

It’s your 7th turn, and you have 7 health remaining, while your opponent is looking pretty good with 25 health remaining. How can Thrall teach Jaina a lesson in the power of the elements? 

Puzzle 3

In our last puzzle, your opponent is Garrosh Hellscream, the Warrior. He has four cards in his hand with the following minions in play: Leper Gnome, Mogushan Warden, Tauren Warrior, and Gruul. He also has an Arcanite Reaper equipped as a weapon.

You are Gul’dan, the Warlock. You have the following minions in play: Summoning Portal, Mana Addict, a 1/1 Lightwarden, Chillwind Yeti, Voidwalker, Kobold Geomancer, and Raging Worgen.

Taking a peek at your hand, you’ve got: Hellfire, Frost Elemental, Defender of Argus, Earthen Ring Farseer, Archmage, Corruption, and Sacrificial Pact.

Garrosh is at 21 Health and no Armor.
