Our Icecrown Citadel Lich King guide contains deck lists for beating the boss with all nine Hearthstone heroes.

The final wing of the Hearthstone's Icecrown Citadel is now open, and if you want to unlock the new Paladin portrait then you're going to have to beat the encounter against The Lich King with all nine heroes.

The thing is, the Arthas encounter comes with an extra challenge that's specific to each Hearthstone hero, making this both a very varied and a very tricky task to complete.

That's where our guide comes in! First of all we've got a breakdown of the fight for you, followed by an overview of the extra challenge each hero has to overcome if they're to claim victory.

We've also got all the deck lists used by Chakki to complete the event, so although they're expensive they've at least been proved capable of getting the job done. Over time we hope to add in some cheaper options for those without an expansive card collection.

UPDATE: While not nearly as powerful as the deck lists featured on this page, we have started our collection of budget Lich King decks. You're gonna need a lot of Murlocs...

Fight overview

Before looking at individual heroes, here are the basics of the fight:

The match is pretty standard until Turn 7 rolls around. At this point he'll play his Frostmourne card, which is a 5 / 3 weapon with a Battlecry that removes all of his minions. It also has a Deathrattle that restores them back to life.

Six 2 / 6 Trapped Souls will also be summoned on his side of the board, and he gains immunity through his new passive hero power called Harvest of Souls. In short, he'll be immune until all of those Trapped Souls have been removed from the board.

Once this phase is over, The Lich King gains a new hero power called Remorseless Winter, which increases in strength with every turn. For that reason it's vital that you finish the fight as quickly as possible from this point onwards.

    Better have a look at these later when I give up designing my own decks... only succeeded with Hunter so far :)

    I've found that dropping "Doomsayer" @ my turn 7 if LK have removed my minion(s) is VERY effective... it'll clear the soldiers and the resummon minions totally without LK trying to remove it.
