How do you actually go about destroying the opponent with Mecha'thun Warrior?

Well, a key interaction comes between the titular card and The Boomship. As the latter card summons Mecha'thun onto the board, you have the option to destroy it by slamming it into another minion thanks to Rush.

Alternatively you can make use of Malygos alongside cards like Inner Rage and Whirlwind to wrap the game up neatly.

Here are the cards you'll need in your hand, with nothing else remaining in your deck pile:

  • 1 x The Boomship
  • 1 x Malygos
  • 1 x Mecha'thun
  • 2 x Inner Rage
  • 1 x Whirlwind

First you play The Boomship, which brings the two minions from your hand into play. Next, play Inner Rage on Malygos and Mech'athun.

Finally, cast Whirlwind to obliterate your side of the board and win the game!

Mecha'thun Warrior Mulligan guide

Here are some thoughts on what cards to look for in the Mulligan stage of the game:

  • 1. Town Crier - Puts a body onto the board and also drags Militia Commander or Zilliax into your hand as well. Note that if this card is played after Dr. Boom, Mad Genius, all Mechs in this deck gain the Rush ability.
  • 2. Eternium Rover - Good for contesting the early-game - particularly against aggro opponents - and building up the Armor reserves you need if you're to survive into the late-game.
  • 3. Acolyte of Pain - More card draw is always welcome in a deck like this, where you're looking to thin down your deck and find the most important pieces of your win-condition.
  • 4. Dr. Boom, Mad Genius - A pricey card but worth keeping as it provides you with so much value in terms of survivability as you build towards your big finish.

Mech'athun Warrior tips, combos and synergies

Getting to your end-game play will require you to have a good understanding of how all the other cards in this deck synergise with each other. Here's a closer look at the most significant combos you need to know about.

- Eternium Rover can generate a fair bit of early Armor for you. Every time it takes any damage at all it'll grant two points of Armor to your hero. You can also Magnetise it to create even more value and get some fast Armor after Dr. Boom, Mad Genius has been played.

- Town Crier will pull one of the following minions from your deck pile when played: Militia Commander and Zilliax.

- If a targeted minion survives the impact of Slam, you'll draw an extra card from your deck pile.

- Any time Acolyte of Pain takes even the slightest amount of damage, you'll draw an extra card.

- Militia Commander only gains her bonus attack for the turn she's placed onto the board.

- When you equip Harrison Jones, you'll not only destroy your opponent's weapon but also gain an extra card for each point of Durability that was remaining on it.

- A reminder that to trigger Mecha'thun's game-winning effect you must have zero cards remaining in your hand or in your deck. Mecha'thun also needs to be the last friendly minion to die.
