Yeah, that deck isn't getting anywhere close to Legend.

Funny how I got the list from SuperJJ, who hit #2 Legend with it then.

Trying it out a bit.  Fell from rank 8 to rank 9 messing with it for 8 matches.  Obviously, it's new to me and there is a learning curve, but I've lost to all 4 face hunters I played.  In this current meta where half of my games are against face hunters, I think this deck will struggle.  If you have any additional anti-aggro tips, I'd love to hear them.

Follow up:  2-6 so far with my 2 wins against Patron Warriors - Hellfire is amazing for those match-ups.  And, like I mentioned above, 4 losses to face hunters.  Not finding much use for bloodmage so far.  Also, with only 5 dragons, the dragon synergy cards can be a little hard to activate at times.  Might try swapping out Bloodmage and 1 Hellfire for maybe more dragons or another Zombie Chow since I'm facing so much aggro.

 

Edit:  Done for now.  Finished 3-6.  Good match-up is Grim Patron Warrior.  Bad is Face Hunter.

I don't get it at all.  I've gone 8-19 trying to learn this deck (played in ranked between 7-10).  In those 27 matches, I've NEVER gotten the pieces for a 1 turn Maly, Darkbomb, Soulfire combo.  I totally disagree with the previous poster... this deck is not consistent at all and is also very susceptible to aggro.

Is it possible to have both Chromaggus and Nefarian in this deck or just one or the other to make this deck work?

You can definitely add one more high value Dragon if you want to go that way. I think I saw Savjz playing a build that had both Nefarian and Malygos.

Against Aggro decks you shouldn't be playing to farm up combo pieces, you should be fighting for the board with the cards you have available and trying to outlast with Healbots and Taunt.

once again this deck is great for every mat h up except face hunter... even added taunt annoy tron and I definitely play to eliminate and gain control but I win only about 1 maybe 2 out of every 5 or 6 against face hunter... face hunter is about 80% what we play from 5-15, need a good answer to solve this issue it's been a problem way to long.

Great deck for every deck match up except face hunter again... from 5-15 I'm facing a ton of face hunter and winning about 2 out of every 6 or so... this is a constant problem Iv been having for a about 2 months and I think everyone else is also. iv added taunt and I play to eliminate/control board get heal bot etc... it's not working, I'd love a good answer to this face hunter issue.. it's all that's standing in my way to 5 under. I'm ranked 7 atm. Thanks sottle for all the help, can't wait to hear back!

Face Hunter is pretty weak right now in my opinion, and that opinion is shared by many. Most Hunter players at high ranks are running either Midrange or Hybrid. I think this deck beats Face Hunter to be perfectly honest, so does Patron Warrior, Flamewaker Aggro Mage, Control Warrior and Grinder Priest. Freeze Mage and Handlock are both slightly favoured as well, that's a huge chunk of the meta that the deck loses to.

Can you play this deck a bit during a stream? I would like to see how to play it correctly I am just not able to do well with it but im not quite sure what im doing wrong. I push hard for board control as best I can but allot of times I still get overwhelmed.

This deck is total crap. I cant win vs controll wariors or face hunters. This deck goes over to fatigue stage because its countered so easely. 90% of the time i played this deck i went to Fatigue stage because i did not have enough firepower, never able to play malygos combo either because it gets cleared like immidiatly. This deck core is Malygos if Malygos is actualy dead you lose the match for sure and go to fatigue stage course you drew to many cards in the early stage.

All the QQ'ing because you didn't instantly hit Legend with a deck your learning to use is amusing. I woudln't expect to master a new deck instantly myself. Thanks for yet another fun to play GREAT deck Sottle, as always enjoy your input ! Also have to agree that while Face Hunter scared me the first few times it tore out my jugular, have since learned how to handle them and I didn't see them much for the last week in the 8-10 bracket. Happy Hunting !

Another awesome Dragon deck! Does take a little finesse and getting to know the deck to get it to play right but loving it! Don't understand all the complaints because a deck doesn't instantly take you from rank "x" to legend in 2 hours? Like everything else takes practice and time! Always enjoy reading your suggestions and advice, happy hunting!

If i wanted to add the rend blackhand to have more answers to big legendaries and also add some tempo and also keep my big mage hunter would the best choice be syphon soul right? And if i wanna add nefarian loatheb would be the one i could take out for him???

U are absolutely right man its an awesome deck and fun to play but like u said it takes pracrice to master it so u wont be ranking up at the beginning because u need to learn the deck first and what to mulligan for each type of deck u are facing and what to play.

For what it's worth I can't  get too far with this deck (probably because I suck) but I absolutely love it! It's soo fun.  One sub I did was to remove 1 Twilight Drake and replace it with Lord Jaraxxus for those close to death moments and when entering the "fatigue" stage.

 

In general on Mulligans I look for one of each 3:

1. Health, (Healbot, Jaraxxus or Earthen Ring Farseer (in that order of priority))

2. Hellfire (for anti-aggro)

3. A dragon (since some cards depend on having one in your hand)

 

I only play Emperor Tharussian when I have at least one of the following in my hand: Malygos, SoulFire.  This way, it is possible that you can get 18 damage in 1 turn (Malygos and both Soulfires if the other doesn't get discarded)

      So the latest expansion, Mean Streets of Gadgetzan, has been out for more than a month now, and I was curious what everyone´s opinion on it was. Personally, I love the set. It adds more synergy with types of cards that weren´t as popular beforehand. For example, sets like secret mage, demon warlock, taunt warrior, and beast druid/hunter, have all gotten big buffs and can be viable in the meta. I got rank 13 with secret mage and taunt warrior alone, and hope to get to legend with them. What about you?

      The live Q&A with the two well-known Hearthstone devs took place yesterday and we've made a recap of the most interesting points.
      First of all, if you want to watch the whole thing, the VOD can be found here (it starts at 14:10). If you prefer a shorter version, Redditor EpicMelon has made a 10-min video of everything important said. Ultimately, if you don't feel like watching videos, we've made a summary of anything worth noting from yesterday's Q&A.
      Ben started talking about the new player experience, a topic he has discussed again this week. He repeated that most new players start off by playing versus A.I., some go to Casual and a minority goes to Ranked. The team has made it so that in Casual new players are exclusively matched against other new players and their MMR is kept to a 50% winrate.
      One of the currently most discussed hot topics in the Hearthstone community is the Ranked ladder. The team is satisfied with how clear the current system is in how it works. However, they do realise that its grindiness and the monthly reset can be a disadvantage and feel repetitive. To counter that, they are looking into short-term increasing the amount of bonus stars players can gain. This will hopefully increase the number of players in medium and higher ranks and move veterans away from Rank 20. However, they don't want everyone to be a Legend player either, since this would devalue the ranking. New breakpoints are also an idea the Hearthstone team is considering. As far as winstreaks stopping at Rank 5 are concerned, the idea behind this is that they wanted players to get to Legend "legit"; this could change as well, though.
      Moving to the topic of Arena, Dean announced that they are thinking of moving it to Standard format. Moreover, they want to try decreasing the amount of commons you get, as well as the amount of neutral Classic and Basic cards (especially minions). Some of these changes for Arena are already ready to be added to the game they are just waiting for the right time to patch them in. In early February, top 100 rankings for Arena will be published - just like the Ranked season ones. These rankings will be calculated based on highest average wins per run basis with a minimum requirement of 30 runs.
      The guys had a few things to say about the current meta, too. Pirate Warrior represented 30% of the meta game near the launch of Mean Streets of Gadgetzan, while there were also a lot of Pirate Shamans and Rogues. Thankfully, these numbers have dropped as other decks (like Jade Druid and Reno decks) started surfacing. Pirate decks are slightly more popular than Team 5 would like and decks with the pirate package feel same-y. If this persists, they might take a look at Pirates. Hunters and Paladins are having a hard time at the moment because they can't keep up with the aggro pirate decks. Overall, the internal meta report shows a stability in the meta: there is only a 3% difference between the winrates of the top deck and the 11th best deck.
      Lastly, there was mention of the Wild format. Ben admitted that they could do some things better for Wild. For example, it's possible that Blizzard will encourage more Wild tournaments in the future. The upcoming rotation will be interesting since Wild will have more card sets than Standard. Wild is far from dead: it's just half as popular as Standard, although Ben hasn't looked in the numbers recently. Earlier in the stream, Ben also said that the team is considering two options to keep Standard fresh: either nerfing cards or just move them to Wild.
      Lastly, Ben and Dean talked about various other small topics like the possibility of reprinting cards (no actual answer given), more Hunter and Paladin talk, wording inconsistencies and rewriting old cards, how a healthy meta is defined and Team 5 itself.
