This is an oversight, thanks for pointing it out! We'll get it fixed ASAP.

This deck is pretty good atm rank 4 with this. But how about cutting  Flamewreathed Faceless  for one more Thunder Buff Valiant.  I don't see much use for 7-7 cause there is so much aggro in the ladder. And when I am playing against control decks like warrior they have usually removal for it. Against warrior Thunder Buff Valiant is super good.

Thunder Bluff Valiant is even worse against aggro as you play it on turn 6 or 8 and you need to roll a totem each turn if you want to get value from it. Yes, it might be better against warrior's Execute, but it's worse against midrange decks, such as midrange hunter or against druids. Swap only if you face a lot of warriors.

No doomhammer? I would have assumed that was the main purpose of rockbiter weapon.

Rockbiter's main purpose is actually for trades. It can turn a horrible situation into a very good trade or something to save a valuable minion.

This is especially true in a deck of totem based minions.

For anyone interested, I've seen a retro-innovation in form of Unbound Elemental rise to popularity, in place of Feral Spirit and 1 Mana Tide Totem. This is a solid 3-drop that can handle a lot of heavy-lifting. Don't pass up on the opportunity to give it a spin, because it's actually pretty good.

Seems like a good deck to try out but it'll take time to build because you need the One Night card.

We have a midrange shaman without Karazhan cards, you can try it out before deciding whether you want to spend gold on ONiK.

Any suggestions what to swap for Bloodmage Thalnos? I don't have the needed dust atm and I didn't have much luck with opening packs.. Was thinking of Doomhammer, but I don't think it's that worth it.

You want a turn 2 option to activate turn 1 Spirit ClawsKobold Geomancer is an alright turn 2 spell power minion, so I recommend trying him out.

Me being fairly new to this game: I've read the stuff (see the quote below) part many times, but I just don't understand what it means. I need an explanation on this one because apparently I'm too stupid to understand.

So, the article reads:

 

Quote

 

3.3. Card Swaps

The tech cards in this deck should be closely evaluated in order to react to the meta you are facing. Lightning Storm can be cut or made a double copy, Hex can be cut down to a single copy as well. You will need to react to the matchups you are facing and decide which of the removal options are functioning well for you.

 

For some reason I simply do not understand this.

1) What are tech cards?
2) It reads: "Lightning Storm can be cut or made a double copy".
What does this mean? I already have two hex and two Lightning Storm cards in my deck!?

I'm totally confused here, please can someone explain this to me, please!

Tech cards are cards that are good only in against one type of decks, such as Lightning Storm against aggro or Acidic Swamp Ooze against weapon classes.

This is an outdated part of the guide and we apologize for that. You still can (but probably should not) cut one HexLightning Storm or one of each and replace them with different tech cards, such as the aforementioned Acidic Swamp Ooze if you encounter a lot of weapons.

It has 2 x Tunnel Trogg and 2 x Feral Spirit...

This is just an oversight after updating the list. Thanks for pointing it out!

      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.

      I have three trinkets to choose from, Two from Mythic EN, Heightened Senses @ 880, Vial of Nightmare Fog @ 880, and finally from Nightbane Kara i have the Ethereal Urn @875. If any other experienced resto shamans could weigh in and help me make a decision it would be appreciated.
