Notes[]

  • Riddle of the Sphinx shows the cards Jythiros has in hand and sometimes the card he draws on current turn. However, it does not mean he will necessarily play one of these offered cards.
    • Near the end of battle it also may the card Jythiros has played already.
  • Riddle of the Sphinx considers modify cost effects like Overload or Glyph of Warding. I.e., it will not offer Kazakus at turn 4 if he costs 5 mana, or boss is overloaded.
  • If the player does a right choice, the banished spells and weapons are countered or immediately destroyed accordingly. The banished minions with abilities (i.e., Battlecry, Deathrattle) are killed without activating their effects.

Strategy[]

At the beginning of each boss' turn, a Discover-like interface will display up to 4 cards in boss' hand that he has enough mana to play on that turn (if the boss has no playable cards in hand, nothing will happen). Then the player selects one of the cards. After that, if the boss plays the chosen card at any point during that turn, it is countered without any consequences - battlecries and deathrattles do not trigger (which is very useful if the battle takes place in Chapter 3), spells are cancelling.

Normal[]

Despite Jythiros' deck has quite strong cards, the fight is not difficult and can be won even with wrong predictions due to the information about the cards in opponent's hand and his predictability. He prefers to play minions and сast only if spell is a lot stronger than minion or minion can not save him from some damage.

Heroic[]

Power of Jythiros' heroic deck significantly prevails most of the treasures and passives so banishing the cards is the only way to win unless the player has fast and strong tempo-deck with Elixir of Vim or Scepter of Summoning. If Jythiros is encountered at level 6 and has Astral Portal, Crusty the Crustacean or Portable Ice Wall in hand, he will play one of these cards firstly and Tracking Device then. Also if he has a choise between two minions he will play a minion with higher Attack (i.e., Zephrys the Great instead of Pyros, and Nalaa the Redeemer instead of Sylvanas Windrunner). Overall Jythiros is oriented to board spam and cast only if summoned minions would not give him much value.
