The cards you should remove are all Sunder Armor and all Steel Skins. You can choose to keep one Steel Skin and get rid of one Guard instead, but if you put no points into Shield just to get rid of all the Steel Skins. 

Heiner Card Upgrades

Because Heiner is very strong you do not need to upgrade any cards and can just keep the shards for other characters instead. 

Heiner Best Shop Items to Choose

When you’re in the shop you want to keep an eye out for any items that make you tankier. The strongest item would be the Hourglass of Death which guarantees you Taunt at the start of the game. It does have negative effects but managing to keep all the enemies aggro on one person is invaluable. 

Heiner Best Pet to Have

When choosing pets for Heiner in Across the Obelisk you may want to consider a cheap option like Champie who gives block or you can go for Sharpie. Sharpie, because he might be the best possible pet to choose for Heiner. He is expensive but being able to dispel one negative effect per turn is incredible. Especially if you have Taunt up you will be constantly getting debuffed. 

Across the Obelisk: How to Play as Heiner

Playing with Heiner in Across the Obelisk is very easy you put him at the front and you just keep armoring up. He’s very good to pair with someone who can help him get to his taunt as fast as possible. You don’t really want to be finding your Taunt in Round Three, you want to find it in Round One or Round Two.

So you run him with scouts like Andrin who could help him discard some of his deck just to work down to his taunt faster. If you have lots of spare mana you can choose to armor up other teammates. If you don’t have Taunt you can put Fortify on other people by using Guard. 

But overall he just stands there and takes damage. Try not to use Shield charge every turn, use it only if you have over 100 armor or if the slow is absolutely necessary. Otherwise, try not to waste your mana keep yourself high and just ride the wave really. 

Heiner is a very fun Champion to play and he’s the best tank in the game. A really easy champion to unlock and very very cheap to build to be very strong.
