very good. in the mirror matchup or against control priest or handlock where both decks fo into fatigue the 4 armor every turn makes a huge different.

Justicar Trueheart or Harrison Jones? I have this deck, but with Jones. Do you think a change to Justicar would be better?

Sure. I removed my HJ and so far I'm ok without it.

lol, why would varian wrynn help you? as you are garrosh? even though you become that dwarf, why would... grommash? XDD but still a nice deck, it Rules!

I'm running nearly the exact same deck (harrison and rag vs alex and boom). What do you think about subbing a garrison commander for shield maiden? It gives a good early drop that could contest aggro and could really help with late game, especially after a varian where the maiden would just be a 5/5 body.

i didnt remove harrison i think harrison is still a very good tech card agaisnt many decks i dont run varian neither as he is too random and you lose sometimes many important battlecrys from the minions summoned and then the next turn equality+consecration boom! just concede. i also keep both shieldmaidens, they are important so survive in the aggro matchup. the only inclusion that i made was justicar trueheart and remove ragnaros for ysera. this is my deck and im having excellet win rate on ladder.

2 execute

2 shieldslam

2 armorsmith

2 cruel taskmaster

2 fiery war exe

2 shieldblock

2 acolyte of pain

1 big game hunter

2 deathbite

2 sludge belcher

1 brawl

1 harrison jones

2 shielmaiden

1 sylvanas windrunner

1 justicar trueheart

1 emperor thaurissan

1 dr. boom

1 grommash hellscream

1 alexstraza

A lot of questions about Justicar, so i'll just make a general post.

I'm not a huge fan of it yet, but I am fighting against the tide, many other top players consider it good in this deck. I'm still not sold, the tempo loss is just so insane when you play it, even in a deck that isn't particularly concerned with tempo like this one.

You'd rather have "just a 5/5 body" from Varian than a 2/3 with upside in almost every world. You already have plenty of stuff to contest aggro in this deck, and Shieldmaidens are just too good in the mid-game.

It's really close, and I like the card a lot, but I just couldn't find room yeah.

I just went on a win streak to Rank 10 to Rank 5 with this deck. Justicar Trueheart is a very solid minion and has helped me survive very tough scrapes against Aggro (and one instance against a Pirate Rogue), and of course the boost to shield slam was awesome against control matchups. I ended up swapping out the Whirlwind for a second Brawl, as I found it was necessary with Secret Paladin, Dragon Priest, and Zoo/Handlock running around. CW is my favorite class and I'm glad to see it's still going strong in TGT.

Also, since I've been playing a lot of this deck, I've noticed Varian isn't that useful in most games, and his effect might cause you to die to fatigue or not pull out any relevant minion (because by the time it's safe to play him, you've probably drawn plenty of other big minions). Would you ever consider swapping him out for, say, Baron Geddon? Or the Shieldmaiden? Baron Geddon has been in CW ever since BRM and is helpful at clearing away annoying minions, especially with Token Paladin on the rise.​​

Baron Geddon has been in and out of Control Warrior ever since forever, not just since BRM. He can be a decent tech card every now and again, but he's not core to the deck. You can certainly add him in if you feel like he'd improve your matchups against what you're playing.

Shield Slam is a craftable Warrior Epic, you need to make them in your collection for 400 dust each, or open it from Classic Packs.

I'm thinking of swapping in more cards with "end of turn" effects (Rag, Geddon, etc.) so they can proc when pulled by Varian.  Good idea?

Need some sub ideas if this will be viable

 

I am lacking Ragnaros (though not included here), Baron, Harrison Jones, Varian, Justicar, and finally Grommash.

I always have been wanting to try CW and got around 2800 dusts now. I know Grommash should be a instant craft if I were to play CW but I'm asking for opinions if I'll be losing on a lot of potential or do you guys find CW to be good in this meta?

 

Some worthy legendaries that I have are Ysera, Sylvanas, Dr Boom, Nexus champ Saraad and recently crafted Alex. Will it be good enough and call it a CW deck if I throw in Grommash?

And, what should my next craft be after Grommash for CW?

 

I have all the other epics, even one copy of gorehowl. I have been running the dragon CW deck pre TGT but the results aren't to my expectation and liking.

The Legendaries at the top of the curve are quite flexible, so you should be fairly ok with what you have + Grom and Gorehowl, Try it out and let us know how it goes?

Love this deck. Only change I tried was swapping Varian with Ragnaros ( used him few times but not a big fan of it), and adding Second brawl in place of whirlwind. I'm having hard times with secret pally, pure amount of secrets put me usually in a difficult situation when I try to get rid of the minibot and tokens in first turns. Then call to arms pop out and mr 5 secreta pops out after that. Any tips How to deal with them ? Thanks

Depends on the scenario in which the 6 drop was played, but Control Warrior should have the answers to deal with it. You need to attack with something first, then once the Noble Sac and Avenge have triggered, you can either Execute the buffed 6/6 if it was the only minion in play, or Brawl if it was played on a large board. It does require that you have the right answers at the right time, and Mysterious Challenger is immensely powerful, but Warrior is for sure one of the classes that can survive it the best.

      Hi,
      I've just finished normal with my main 890ilvl (54 points) prot tank and also with my 876ilvl (36 points) druid tank.
      My conclusion is the following:
      The protection warrior is taking way to high damage from almost all abilities except auto-attacks which are low anyway.
      Shield block doesn't work against any of the abilities in nighthold and doesn't help with any magical skills.
      Basically our block even with 2 set items, having aprox 65% crit block chance is useless in Nighthold.
      The fact that our main reduction ability except our 8k-ish armor is useless for all Nighthold bosses. Demo, LS, SW, SR are ok for stack abilities or strong abilities but they couldn't be frequent enough. The damage taken spikes are crazy...just crazy and I've kept IP 40-60% of the damage and decent 90% + bracket dps.
      Paladin tank and warrior tank used to be very similar in damage taken ( normal damage taken ), now paladin is taking 100 millions and warrior is taking 200-400 million on same boss. This is because their damage is percent damage reduction and that works for magical also, but our shield block is irrelevant. Also paladins block spells now.
      In regard to my 876ilvl druid, I've done Guldan solo tanking without any stress. I've done rest of bosses without a problem, only keeping 1-2 stack of ironfur up and using rest of my rage for the 30% reduction every 10 sec, and I won't even start with the amount of cds druids have. These runs showed me how warrior is 0 compared to paladin,druid and DK. 
      I would place warrior on last place under DK, as Shield Block is an irreleant ability in this raid. You can check logs and compare raids from EN and Nighthold. It seems that to be so-so with a warrior tank you would have to maximize versatility and ignore every other stat :|, maybe then you will start reducing some damage from this raid.
       
      I believe that even the first version of warrior tank from start of EN couldn't handle Nighthold as good as paladin,druid can now. They were just op at low level for being able to handle high mythic dungeons at low gear for stacking IP 2 million absorb, but they scaled bad compared to others and that IP would drop in 2 hits on Mythic EN content, making it so-so anywany.
       
      Post below if any ideas pop to mind related to the above problem. Thanks !
