The below classes are listed purely for reference, and have no effect on the boss' use of the cards during the battle.

Level 1-2
Total cards Normal Heroic
Class Possible cards Class Possible cards
10; 15 Druid Biology Project Druid Enchanted Raven
Lesser Jasper Spellstone Lesser Jasper Spellstone
Crystal Merchant Mark of the Lotus
Neutral Bug Collector Mark of Y'Shaarj
Jeweled Scarab Astral Tiger
Plated Beetle Ironwood Golem
Golden Scarab Oaken Summons
Infested Goblin Neutral Plated Beetle
Snapjaw Shellfighter Infested Goblin


This is one of the few early fights that can stretch out even if you not intested to play until fatigue. Zenda summons the Plated Beetle quite often and accordingly gets a large amount of armor. In addition, Infested Goblin is actively used for protection. Other cards do not have a significant impact on the game situation. On Normal you can safely go to the face, making only profitable trades, but on Heroic it's desirable to kill any minions, since they can be buffed with Mark of the Lotus and Mark of Y'Shaarj (the exception is lethal on the next turn or Addarah in the hand).
